She's exactly 25# now. She's getting 3-3.5 cups per day. Lately she hasn't been finishing meals (fed twice a day). Just this week I added 2 pumps of salmon oil daily. She also gets treats and peanut butter. She was dewormed about a month ago as a preventative (panacur). She gets walks and off leash time twice a day. About 45min-1hour each time. Plus who knows how much play time with our kids. I'm open to suggestions but prefer to avoid grain free. I'd never heard of the Annamaet brand. Maybe that's the way to go? the other food I'm considering is a puppy food from Nutrisource. It's 534 k/Cal per cup. First ingredients are Chicken meal, chicken, brown rice, white rice, fish meal (a source of fish oil), oatmeal, chicken fat and so on.
This is a food I've never heard of, where'd you? And why are you using it, especially if you do not like the results? Lamb as a first ingredient sounds nice, but that's mostly water. Lamb meal is a good protein source, but then there's 3 grains/cereals, peas, and then some vague egg "Product". Eggs are a good source of many things, but "Product"?
I don't want to necessarily get into reviewing people's food choices, but nutrition is super important during puppyhood for development purposes, you (And they) only get one shot at that. So, if the food isn't giving the results you want (and the pics confirm this) switch over to a 5 star food, read the ingredients and learn about them on dogfoodadvisor.com I think looking at K/cal is missing the point, at 3-3.5 cups per day, she should look better than she does.

Not necessarily the duck formula, but all of them, which you can rotate.
