My female is going to be one year in. April. I feed her Fromm Gold Large Breed Puppy. The package gives serving size for dogs up to 24 months old. Do I feed her this until she is 2 or switch her at 1 year?

Any advice you get on this would just be someone's opinion.
My opinion is to switch any time between 12 and 18 months.
There are so many excellent dog food options that any one
of them will provide ample nutrition for any healthy dog
at any age. JMHO

Our vet told us that we will wait and see, if he grows too fast we can switch 5-6 month to adult food, because growing too fast is not always good for a large breed dog and it can hurt still soft bones and joints. I have seen a 4 month old gsd that looks like a larger puppy and one that looks like an adult... This month there is an article about this in the AKC magazine.
