Fromm large breed puppy or ACANA Dog Food - Heritage Free-Run Poultry

I Acana due to ingredients. Would it be ok for 7 month female?

At 7 months I would be feeding the Adult Acana foods, or any if their lines suitable for all life stages.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

They are both great brands, but if you prefer the ingredients in Acana it should be fine. Just check Calcium and Phosphorus levels, the last time I checked there were some of their formulas that were a little higher than I like to see for a growing GSD. At seven months it may not be as big a concern, but they are still growing for a while yet at 7 months.

Calcium level is good. Phosphorus is 0.8, is that good?

Thanks,

That should be fine. Just don't want the ratio of Calcium to Phosphorus to be to far from 1:1.

I'd like to quickly jump in too rather than create another thread just to get the same thing answered, was considering the same thing. I've got Rocky on Acana's Large Breed Puppy and was thinking about switching him to Acana's Wild Praire (ALS), he's always been more on the skinny side and feel like he'd benefit from the added calories, though there's a slight increase in Calcium/Phosphorus levels (would be switching from 1.4/1 to 1.5/1.1).

We also feed him more than the actual bag suggests and he's still for the most part remained on the fairly skinny side (everyone at our club thinks he's a little skinny too) though he measured 23.6kg (52lb) a week before he hit 5 months, which from what I can see is in line with the growth chart if not more?

Any thoughts? He's just hit 5 months almost a week ago.
