I've seen that some people feed Diamond Lamb & Rice but the first ingredient is lamb meal. Is that dried ground lamb and is it okay to feed? I"ve been looking at 4 Health and now the Diamond Lamb and rice.

I'm switching Mia over from large breed puppy food to adult and also the new puppy will be on the new food as well. I've been researching and see that most people don't feed puppy formula food. Just want to do what's best for both Mia and the new puppy.

Oh, this feeding thing is so overwhelming.:confused:

Thanks everyone. I've always fed puppy food to my puppies but when I start reading all of these feeding puppy threads, I start to second guess myself. All of my GSDs have lived up to or very close to 14 years old without any joint or bone issues.

We just lost our 14-year-old female on August 11th of this year. She didn't have an ill day in her life and had only started having some arthritis issues 6 months before she passed. She passed away at home of a heart attack. It was sudden and just one month and 1 day past her birthday. I fed her puppy food until she was 18 months old and then she was switched to adult dog food.

Dog/puppy foods now are much more advanced and more specific than they were 14 years ago. I do like the idea that there are specific foods for large breed puppies now.

I guess when it comes down to it, it's all about preference. Maybe with the thought of our past dogs in mind, I should be thinking, if it's isn't broke, don't fix it.

Mia is 14 months and definitely needs to be on adult food and I think my choices are down to the 4Health and Diamond Lamb and Rice.

Thanks again for the input. I really appreciate it. :)
