I recently got an English Springer Spaniel puppy. He is currently 14 weeks old. He is on purina puppy chow but I would like to switch him to something a lot better. I heard that medium and large dogs have different requirements on certain ingredients so i was wondering what the best foods would be to switch him to.
Thank you.November 29, 2014 at 11:49 am #58823 Report AbuseDog_ObsessedMember

You should definitely switch him off of the Puppy Chow, but make sure his is comfortable and has been in your house at least a week, because stress can make food transitions harder. Good luck, and congrats on your new puppy!November 29, 2014 at 11:56 am #58824 Report AbusetheBCnutMember
If you are looking for a good starting place, NutriSource Large Breed Puppy has good calcium levels for LBPs and NutriSource is known for being easy to transition to. From there you can try a few different foods and see what he does best on. Go over to the review side and do a search on rotational diets to find out about why sticking with only one food is not a good idea.
