Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

better is pretty subjective on here, but Canidae is less expensive for me than Royal Canin is, and I prefer it.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

you can go to their website and search for a local dealer, actually my local feed store sells it.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

My GSD started off eating Nature's Variety Prairie. She now eats Canidae. Its a little cheaper.... Anyhow, she is doing great at 17 months and 62lbs respectively. Perfect. My Dobe eats EP Holistic LBP. He did not do well on Canidae. It constipated him, made his belly bloated (took him over 3 hours to poop). There are so many good options now. Just try one for awhile and see what works for you and your dog the best. I fed Nutro NC with previous dogs but wont go there again....

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

My breeder likes a high quality puppy food for the 1st 6mos. I trust her judgment (& experience!) but that goes against everything I've heard from large/giant breed people.

Is there anything in puppy feeding that can either increase or decrease tendencies to food allergies? Serious food allergies seem to be rampant (& increasing!) in recent years.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

I think the best way to get rid of the allergies is to not expose the dogs to them. Which is a reason why I am going with a grain free diet and something more like a natural canine diet.
I am kinda up in the air over Evo red meat or Orijen once the pups are older. For now I settled on Solid Gold and will see how they do on that. It is only a 4 star dog food and I want to get them on a 6 star and or completely switch over to a RAW diet.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

Maybe you should have a look at this webpage which I found interested.
It gives you all dog food out there and cans too.

Most people out there already knows I had to take my GS pup off of puppy food cause he was growing too fast and still is but a bit less now. Thank god. He's only 6 1/2 months old and weighs 85lbs. He's not fat either just very husky and muscular. Been to the vet and he's healthy. Now he's on Orijen for adult (wildfish). Brought him down from 4 cups a day to 2 a day (aside from his treats). Instead of taking 3-5lbs a week in weight, he takes 1-3 a week and somethings 2 weeks. He's very healthy and he loves his food.
