    DefaultPro Plan question - focus or sport?

    I've been feeding my 13 week old pup Kirkland Chicken and Rice. I'm down to about 20lbs of it and would like to get him on Pro Plan but unsure of which type Focus or Sport?
    The pup has gas, his stool was checked no worms. He also scratches and bites himself. I cut out all of his treats and just reward with his kibble. He's a field lab, weights 25lbs, coat is pretty shinny but think it could be better.

    Either Pro Plan is fine. Depends where you shop and how much hunting do you want to do. My Petsmart isn't going to sell the new expansive lines of Pro Plan, so if you come across that instance, Pro Plan Puppy chicken and rice (not large breed) is fine. My Petco I recently found out is going to be selling it all. If that's your case, I would probably go with the Sport 30/20 or Selects Chicken/Rice.

    Just a thought because you mentioned he scratches and bites... Pro Plan also makes a good sensitive skin and stomach food. You might want to try that instead

    Aren't those varieties of the "shredded" type? If so, I would avoid the "shredded" types and go with (if you want Pro Plan) the regular chicken and rice puppy food.

    Nope. Shredded is under their "SAVOR" line. SPORT has Performance with 3 varieties of Protein/Fat. SELECT includes the 2 Selects they are keeping and the Sensitive Skin. FOCUS has the puppy, large breed, and that kind of food in it.

    Puppy Chicken and Rice - Dry Dog Food - FOCUS - Purina® Pro Plan®

    Performance 30/20 Formula - Dry Dog Food - SPORT - Purina® Pro Plan®

    Sensitive Skin is NOT an ALS formula so I would not recommend it to a 13 week old puppy.

    No, the shreds are called savor now. I feed Focus - it's the large breed foods and maybe some others. My 7 1/2 month old is on Pro Plan large breed puppy (which is also a maintenance formula). I know a lot of folks don't like large breed foods for labs, but I honestly can't complain. He looks great on the food.

    Ah, thanks for the update! One of our rescue Shepherds is on the Savor, and is shredded. I did not realize that there was a total revamping/packaging of the PP lines. guess I'll have to go look, but why the renaming?
