    DefaultSwitching To Adult Food

    My lab is 11 months old and he is still on Pro Plan Puppy food. He has not been as active over the winter and he seems to be getting a little thick around the middle. Not fat, just thick. Would it be okay to switch him over now to adult food? Is Pro Plan a decent dog food? My wife started him out on this. Seems a little pricey but so far so good.

    I switch my puppies at 3-5 months, so yes you can switch him now. I only feed ProPlan to my dogs and require that my puppy owners do the same, so yes I feel ProPlan is a good food. Whatever you do, DO NOT feed the ProPlan Shredded blends. It's a crappy food.

    If you can get the ProPlan Chicken and Rice adult in the purple and orange bag, switch to that. If you can't find it, you can switch to the ProPlan Selects Chicken and Brown Rice. Another choice is the ProPlan Sensitive Skin and Stomach which is fish based. Or the ProPlan Selects Salmon and Brown Rice. Some of my adults eat the ProPlan Performance and are doing really well on it. That's another option for you.

    Pro Plan pricey? Honestly, it's about the best you can get for the least amount of money. Anything cheaper is going to be crap. Well, some folks have luck with Purine ONE, but that's only because it's somewhat similar to Pro Plan.

    We are due to switch from puppy pro plan to adult pro plan. Do we do it gradually as when switching to a new brand or is it similar enough that you can just switch? When younger my puppy displayed a very sensitive stomach. I have not seen signs of this in the last couple of months but she gets very little that is not her regular food, just a few bites of banana or apple ocassionally.

    If you're unsure of how your dog will react to a diet change, it's always best to do it gradually.
