Re: Information Overload on Puppy Food - HELP!
First off congrats on your new puppy! It's an exciting time for you I can imagine. Ok, this topic seems to always comes up very frequently on this site, and you were very wise to do your reseach. Personally, I would keep your puppy on his existing food Pro Plan until you discuss the matter with your vet. I see no reason to change his food this early. We had our puppy (Axel) on Purina One which the breeder was feeding her dogs, and I felt that it wasn't a good quality food, however my vet stated that it is was good and he suggested that Axel just stay on this food. However, Axel started getting stomach issues, and he had diarrhea and soft stools for sometime. We had to switch foods to a high fibre food, as well I switched to Blue Buffalo life protection which I mixed in with the DCO (Dual Fiber Control). He is now 6 months old and his stools are better but still not always consistently normal. We are now switching him to Avo derm (grainfree) as we heard from the vet that this may help, as he is using it on his own dog who also has stomach issues and is now thriving on this food. So, we shall see. But in your case if your puppy is healthy and has no issues, I would not change anything for awhile. If Axel had normal stools all along I probably never would have switched his food, possibly maybe after a year to a higher protein food. Anyway's good luck.
