    Hello, all!

    I recently aquired a pup (Kaiser) & am feeding 4Health puppy formula. My adult dog (Jinx) is on the 4Health Salmon & Potato currently.

    I was wondering if there was a distinct advantage of feeding formulated for puppies food over adult, or all stages. The caloric count is about 20 higher on the pup formula. I entered all the ingredients into a spreadsheet & there was only one notable difference (besides the different meat products) which was Chondroitin Sulfate, for joint support apparently.

    So, the question is, should I keep feeding puppy formula or perhaps add supplements or vitamins to an adult formula for him?

    (His mother is 50lbs, father unknown; just for a size/growth reference)

    Thanks, all!

    All Life Stages is puppy food. I feed ALS food for life. There is nothing in puppy food that is not fine for adult dogs. As you found, it may be higher in calories, which means you need to watch their weight, but everyone needs to be watching their dog’s weight anyways.
