Re: Puppy Food Options

The only time I would feed puppy food, is if it is a Large Breed Puppy food because of Calcium and Phosphorus levels. Are these LBP formulas or just standard Puppy formulas?

Re: Puppy Food Options

Its between the wellness and Solid gold. Im going to go with Soild gold over wellness just because I love the protein sources (Lamb,fish) Im not a big fan of chicken based foods.

Re: Puppy Food Options

I would go with the Solid Gold but for a GSD puppy get the Wolf Cub formula as it is for Large Breed Puppies. It's an excellent product.
