    Hi everybody! Does anyone have any advice on switching a 6 month old Newfie from Dr Tim’s Kinesis w 26% protein to Earthborn Coastal Catch w 32% protein? Should I be concerned about the 32% protein? Happy with Dr Tim’s just trying to rotate as I’ve read it’s good to do so.

    Thanks!

    I’m feeding my 10 wk old Newfie Earthborn Holistic Meadow Feast. She was smallest in the litter and is still a bit on the thin side at just under 20 lbs. I realize the feeding recommendation on the bag is just a guide, but it indicates 1-1.25 cups A DAY. We’re up to 3 cups a day and she still frantically searches for more. She seems to be a good weight from the “rib test.” Is it ok to be that far off from the feeding guidelines? Should I bump up to more than 3 cups? Thanks!

    Hello HDM et al!

    We just brought home our new 9 week old / 13 lbs Newfoundland from the breeder this weekend and I’m looking to soon transition from the Pro Plan Adult Large Breed she’s currently eating to one from the recommended list (dry kibble). She’s already on the small side for a newf and also a bit too skinny, so we’re trying to bulk her up (though still keep her on the thin side). Based on what I’ve gathered from reading nearly every post in this forum, I’ve narrowed it down to 1) Earthborn Holistic: Coastal Catch, 2) Innova LB Puppy and 3) Dr Tim’s Kinesis. Was looking at Fromm’s as well but a bit concerned about some of the recent posts about owners having issues. Also A bit hesitant on the Innova and Dr Tim’s due to the lower protein levels. Any thoughts on what food from either the grain or grain-free lists would be best for trying help her build up some some muscle but also maintain healthy growth?

    Many thanks!
