\I agree, there is so much conflicting info out there, it's head-spinning! What I decided to do is mix the two: Puppy & Large Breed Puppy. I figured I would split the odds. I give 1/2 cup Puppy & 1/4 cup LB Puppy--3 x per day with a fish oil capsule at lunch (she is currently 5 mo old) She's doing well on it (Orijen) and I just keep on eye on her ribcage to make sure I can still feel it and that she has a good tuck-up. All's well.
