Hi! My golden is about a year and 3 months old... I am going to feed him Innova, but I am not sure if I should get him Large Breed Adult or Large Breed Puppy? He is very skinny at the moment.

At one year old, definitely adult food. Most people actually switch from puppy food to adult at around 6-7 months. Some even do it sooner.

And on the same sort of note, the large breed food is unnecessary. The regular Innova should be fine.

Oakly has been on adult food his whole life. His breeder felt this slowed growth to allow better joint development.

The large breed Innova is really a good maintenance formula IMO. In many instances the "large breed" distinction is more advertising than anything else. Has a nice 26%protein level and more moderate cals than the regular. I use it for all my crew on a rotation.

Hi OaklysDad :)

I just seen this post, and I wanted to ask you if you noticed any differences in Oakley's growth from being on Adult food all his life. We're bringing out puppy home May 8th and the breeder also recommends an adult food formula for the same reason.

Thanks!!
