Changing my pups diet

Postby jonnywho » Fri Nov 30, 2012 1:38 am

Hey All,

I have a 3 month old pup who I got from a breeder when he was about 10 weeks old. The breeder was feeding him Beef Pro Puppy which I knew was crap. the best dog food I could find locally, which my vet recommended, was Natural Balance Super Premium. So I started switching him over to this from day 3 with us. After some research, I want to switch him over again permanently to either Orijen or Go Natural. Is it too soon to do this?

Yes! Switch from crap immediately. You don't need a vet to help you define what is a good food and what is a bad food, ( most don't know anyways), all you need to do is be able to read a label and understand what you are reading. ( and you seem to have a good grasp on that)

One thing though... I don't know if Orijen changed hands recently, but their formulation seems to have changed and the food is not as well received as in the past, so you may want to skip it entirely or don't get a large bag, start with a very small one, or just move over to Go Natural or Fromm products. Best of luck and thanks for putting quality nutrition as a priority for your puppy!
