We are welcoming a female puppy Samoyed soon, and I just wanted an opinion on whether to feed her Large Breed Puppy food or regular puppy food. The parents are 54 Lbs (mom) and 60 Lbs (dad). From what I seen that is right around the cusp of Large breed and Medium breed.
Also would like to know any dog foods that you guys recommend. I was about to go with Orijen but noticed that their is a lawsuit filed in California, but its hard to tell what is noise or truly factual. For reference I am located in Canada which may affect the choice of foods. Thanks all in advance for your time.
These two look good to me.
For science based veterinary medicine go here: http://skeptvet.com/Blog/2010/01/nutrition-in-large-breed-puppies/
You can use the search engine at that site to look up “nutrition” for more informative articles.
I have found the site very helpful. Good luck with your puppy.
Feed a large Breed Puppy formula as they are formulated for growing large breed puppies bones, you dont want their bones growing too quickly..
“Dog Food Advisor” has a section on Large Breed Puppies..
whats best to feed, a good read.. https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-dog-foods/best-large-breed-puppy-food/
I like “Wellness” dog foods
Wellness has been around over 100yrs so I’d say they’d know what they are doing when it comes to dogs & cats..
Make sure you add fresh meaty bone & fresh ingredients aswell to his meal so he gets a variety of foods & use to eating a few different foods….. this is when dogs end up with food sensitivities cause when they were pups they only ate the 1 dry food & never had a variety of foods, this strengthens their immune system (Stomach) & gets them use to different ingredients….
