Switching to Fromm confused

Ok so I'm gradually switching my 11 week old to fromm gold adult. My plan was to switch to fromm gold adult large breed but the store was out and the 2 weren't that different. She is on eukanuba large puppy breed now and I give her 2 cups daily. 1 cup am, 1 cup pm. My question is once I gradually add in the fromm I know she should get less of the fromm so how do I work that in? Tonight i did 3/4cup eukanuba and 1/4cup fromm but im thinking in end she shouldnt be getting 2 cups of fromm daily? And the bag for the fromm gold adult large breed doesn't even have recommendation because the weight starts at 40lbs.
So for now with fromm gold adult how much should she get daily? And hopefully next bag would be fromm gold adult lg breed what would she get daily?
Thanks!
She's about 11-12lbs now!

The calorie counts for both brands are pretty similar. Eukanuba is 337/cup and Fromm is 378/cup, so the amount you feed should be almost the same. If she is doing well on the amount of calories she is getting , then 1 7/8 of a cup daily or 1 cup am and 7/8 c in pm should give you the same number of calories, or just slightly less than 1 c in am and pm. Please make sure you are using a proper measuring cup. Also, I believe there liquid measuring cup is bigger than a dry measuring cup.

Just curious, but why the switch? Max did very well on the Eukanuba--he ate it until he was about 16 months old.

Not easy to measure 1 7/8 cups of dog food.

My breeder had suggested switching her to an adult formula after finishing the small bag of eukanuba. She didnt specify a brand just adult. So I heard good things about fromm and figured I try their adult one out!

Good luck with the new food. I also have heard good things about Fromm. We have been feeding Max Acana Wild Prairie for several months now. He really likes it and is doing very well with it.

Fromm is good. I would personally work her up to the quantity you are feeding of the Eukanuba--but you will most likely have to bump it up as she grows, to meet her growing needs. Sometimes it will be double the amount of the recommended amounts for adults, just as an example.

So far she is loving the Fromm. She never ate so fast and never finished her food, now she is! Just curious if the food was going to give her loose stool, Would it have happened by now? She just had her 3rd serving of it and her stool has been normal.

I have read that you need to feed the food 100% for 3 weeks to see how the stools will really be.

Lol yeah, Molly is on day 6 of being exclusively on her new food and everything has been fine so far but I am not going to get my hopes up.
