I’m getting ready to switch my Beagle from her puppy food to adult food. I have a few foods in mind, but can’t decide which one to go with so I was looking for some advice. The foods I was looking at are:
Taste Of The Wild (Sierra Mountain or Pine Forest)
Nutrish Peak (Wetlands or Open Range w/ freeze dried pieces)
Solid Gold (Fit n Fabulous Alaskan pollock)
4Health (Small bites formula)
Nutro (Wholesome essentials lamb and Rice)
I’m looking for something not too high in calories to help her keep a good weight. I would say the top three are the ones that have my intrigue the most. Any help would be appreciated.
I’ve done more research and based on calories and fat I think I’ve narrowed it down to Solid Gold Fit n Fabulous (Alaskan Pollock) and Eagle Pack Reduced Fat.
How important is fiber? The puppy food had 4%, and the two foods above are 6% and 9% and I don’t want to make a big jump if it has negative effects.

Also not to post soon one after the other but it won’t let me edit the last post, any opinions on American Journey brand?CockalierMomMember
If your beagle is eating food with 4% fiber and you increase to 6% or 9%, you will see an increase in the amount and frequency of poos and possibly diarrhea. I would look for an adult food that has around 4% fiber and start with that one first. Unless your dog is having digestive issues, there is no reason to increase the fiber that much at once.
Thank you very much Cockalier Mom!
