    I switched Gunny at 5 months.

    Autumn was on all life stages food at the time so I didn't need to switch.

    Most canine nutritionists recommend making the change from LBP food around 12 months or when adult growth is attained.

    No one that I know of (except dog food companies) recommend a LB adult food. It's a marketing gimmick. If you want more G&C or Omega 3, it's much cheaper and you get FAR more of their effective ingredients by supplementing with Costco's Kirkbride G&C and their Fish Oil caps.

    Wow, thanks for that tip on LB adult food. I would have never thought that since LB puppy food is so essential for them, I just figured that it was a must to continue with the LB formula. It makes it easier that way for me because my other dogs dont eat the lare breed formula!!!!! ONE LESS BAG OF DIFFERENT DOG FOOD TO BUY!!!! Yeah ;D

    Lexie turns one in less than a month.* We will be switching her gradually in a couple weeks when this LB puppy bag starts to run out.

    Most breeders make the switch before 6 months and a very large number of orthopaedic surgeons agree that puppy food, even large breed puppy food, contributes to developmental joint problems including OCD, HD, ED, HOD, etc. If you feed a high quality food, you shouldn't need puppy food and you will find that the high end foods do not offer puppy.
