My breeder that I got my Sum Sums from feeds Purina One and her dogs always look great. My mom is feeding Purina One to her 10 year old German Shepherd and 10 month old Golden and both are doing really well on it.

Definitely switch to an adult or all life stage food now.

I agree with Kirkland, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul, Diamond Naturals Grain Free line from Tractor Supply are all budget friendly. Best of luck!

I think leaving him on a Large Breed puppy formula for a few months longer would be wise. True, puppy foods are usually higher in calories and fat, but good Large Breed formulas also include optimum amounts of other necessary nutrients as well, while being cognisant of the growth patterns of larger breeds.

I feed Purina One Large Breed Puppy. I was going to switch to adult but my vet said to keep her on it until she's a year old. Since she came from a backyard breeder and I know nothing about her because the person who bought her lost their number, I just follow his advice. I want to give her the best start. It's reasonably priced and she does better (stools) than when she was on Nutra.

Actually it's Purina Pro Plan that she feeds Purina One is a different food. I would feed Pro Plan for sure if we were having problems with the food we currently feed.

If he is doing well on Purina one, I'd honestly leave well enough alone. He may or may not do as well on a different food and I'm in the camp of "if it's not broken, do not fix it"!

I feed my cats Purina one and they do great on it! My dogs all get Proplan and we have had great success with it, too.
