She was a stray (no id chip). The vet gave her vaccines, hearth guard, flee preventative, and a sample of Science Diet. I have my beagle on Blue Buffalo since she was a baby..she is now 2 years old, and so far she has never been sick (Hope to have the same luck with the new pup).
What i have gathered from internet research is that you can switch labs to adult food at about 6 months.. So i am thinking about buying her Taste Of The Wild puppy food (for the next 2 months), and then switching my beagle to the all stage TOTW (So they can eat the same food.)
One of my main concerns is joint or bone health or anything they are prone to.
What are you guys feeding your labs? Any treats for Bones or joints? Any health advise?
I am all about prevention and open suggestions. Thank you! Excuse the bad grammar.
TOTW is a fine choice. That's better than Science Diet. I switch over around 5 months personally, but that's me. Ortho issues are just as much a problem with environment and external factors as diet, inheritance, and the lot. If you get her on a decent diet, you shouldn't need to supplement her with any thing. Keeping her fit and exercising her appropriately should be sufficient.

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
When I feed kibble, TOTW is my current choice, and is what my almost 6 month olds are switching to. (Otherwise I feed mostly RAW and semi-raw. I do supplement with assorted things, but mostly because I feed RAW and it helps provide the variety of diet that is essential to RAW feeding.

On semi raw How do you go about chicken? Do you Take out the bone, And you give it frozen? I will look in to semi raw. I ended up buying LB Blue Buffalo for puppies.. Do you think, the regular adult blue will be ok for when she is older? My beagle does well on it.. But I understand my lab will have diffrent needs.
