    Defaultswitching to adult food....regular or large breed

    We are switching Sally over from Nutro large breed puppy to Nutro adult food. Should she be on the adult regular or adult large breed? (she's almost 5 months old)

    Isn't 5 months old too early to switch her to adult food? I was under the impression you should wait till they're in the 12-18 month age group?

    It really depends on who you talk to what you hear. My vet wants large breed owners to switch over at 10-12 months. My breeder suggests 6 months...

    Ok..next question..does anyone know why puppy food doesn't seem to be that good for puppies after that age? I'm guessing..the protein/fat/etc. content???
