I have a lab/beagle mix puppy who is a little over 4 months old now. I have been feeding her Science Diet’s Puppy Small Bites food. Is this okay for her or should I be switching to a different food? I’ve heard good things about Science Diet, but I didn’t know if the small bites were best or if I should be giving her their Original Puppy food – or if I should be doing something different entirely! I want her to have the best nutrition for these periods when she is still growing.
Although your pup is probably not going to be too big, I would probably err on the side of caution and consider her a large breed. Science Diet is not the best thing she could be eating. Take a look at this link: https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/forums/topic/large-and-giant-breed-puppy-nutrition/ and check out the document on page 33, I believe – it has a list of appropriate foods for large breed pups, which yours may or may not become. Even small-medium breeds can eat large-breed-appropriate food, so she will benefit from it anyway.
