Re: Most Highly Recommened Dry Puppy Food?

Royal Canin is a good food.

Re: Most Highly Recommened Dry Puppy Food?

I've used both Nutro and Royal Canin. Started with Nutro as that was what her breeder was using. Switched to Royal Canin when Kayla was 6 months mixed with Nutro canned when she seemed to be having soem skin irritation issues. Switched out the canned food and started using Nupro supplement when she turned 2 last Feb.

And a couple of months ago went back to Nutro with Nupro joint supplement.

Re: Most Highly Recommened Dry Puppy Food?

My personal story is my son dropped Nutro, which has sponsored his competitive labs for two years. The Nutro Rep would not answer his questions about where their food is produced and where their ingredients come from.

He was able to find another sponsor, and their kibble is fresh, produced daily, and in the USA.

If you have any interest send me a personal reply.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

We're getting our GSD puppy soon and I was wondering if any of you have strong opinions of Nutro Max (for large breed puppies) vs Nutro Ultra (for large breed puppies). The local Petsmart sells the Max, but not Ultra, so the Max would be a lot more convenient for us to purchase. But if it's significantly inferior (for GSDs) to Ultra, we'll shop for the Ultra elsewhere.

Btw, here's a website for a freebie 5 lb bag of "any" Nutro Natural Choice Dog Food (expires March 31st):

Oops. I should have specified that it's the large breed puppy version of Nutro Ultra that Petsmart doesn't sell (for whatever reason).

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

I fed Onyx Nutro Natural Large breed puppy til she was almost 7 months, she had a bout of pano at six months and again two times until she turned a year. I now feed RAW and so far so good. I think the protein level of the Nutro was more than she needed.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

I switched my puppy off of Nutro and onto Eagle Pack Holistic and he's doing great on it!

Mom to:
Riley - 8 yr. old GSD
Schatzie - GSD - at the Bridge
Raven - GSD - at the Bridge
Diablo - WGSD/Arctic wolf/GreatPyr Mix - at the Bridge


If dogs aren't in heaven, why would we want to go there?

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

I have fed CANIDAE for over 10 years to all my dogs. I recommend it to all my training clients no matter what age the pup or dog. That is what ALL LIFE STAGE is all about. It just works. http://wwww.canidae.com

Training isn't expensive.... IT'S PRICELESS!

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

Should you really use puppy food? As there is no puppy food in the wild.
It could make the puppy grow too fast and create joint problems.

Just another thing a breeder told me.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

Nope, really no need. Most people on here feed their puppies a high quality adult food, or RAW.
