Max is going to be 1 year old in 2 weeks and I have gotten different opinions on when he should switch to adult food. We are giving him Solid Gold puppy food....when should we start adding in some of the adult food to switch him over? Some say now...some say in a few more months.... I would love to know everyone's opinion on this!! Thanks!!
I did it at about a year . Usually your Vet advises you but I do not think there is a set rule .. it is a good idea to do it gradually not all at once - they might get a tipsy tummy ..
We have discussed this before on other posts so you might want to look it up ..
You should ask your vet. There are a lot of differing opinions out there on whether or not to feed puppy food at all. However, I do think that if you do feed puppy food, the consensus is either 6 months or a year to switch to adult food. So I would say you should start slowly switching to adult food right now. However, you should ask your vet so he can determine if his weight is good and if it would be good for him to switch now or a little later.
my breeder recommended switching Quince from puppy to adult food at around 6 months as they tend to grow too fast on the high calorie puppy formulas.When you do decide to switch--just add alittle and keep adding more and more till he is switched over.This gradual way helps their body adjust so you don't end up with the poop-ie butt!
