Puppy feeding advice

Hi All,

We're new to the fourm

we got out white boxer Hope just over a week ago

she is 12 weeks the breeder had her on a mixed diet of puppy food and adult food it was recomended to me to put her on James well beloved puppy food i tryed her on it and she has had constant runs and bad wind so we tryed a differant flavour and still the same

i have now taken her off this and just given her rice and this seems to have made things a bit more firm but still quite soft

we were just wondering if anyone had any advice on which food would be better for her

thanks

Hi there and welcome to The Whitestuff.

The most important thing to remember with puppies is the rate at which you change their food. If you changed over straight away, you will upset their tummies.

Go back to the original food she was on that she is used to and then introduce the food slowly. 1/4 for a week, 1/2, 3/4 and then fully on after about 4 weeks.

James Wellbeloved is a good quality food, both my girls are on it. With boxers, you can start them on adult food by about 6 months. Again, introduce it slowly to get their tummies used to it.

Good luck!
Karen

Re: Puppy feeding advice

we use the kirkland brand lamb and rice>reccomended by our trainer<...it got 120 points on the dog food report card thing they have out of a possible 110 points.......it did better than the nutro and hte science diet. we are in the states though.


we had been using the regular dog chow by purina, it is crap! but everytime i changed lillys diet shed get the runs like splatter on the walls kind so id left her on the dog chow....it took forever it seemed to switch her over, we did mix it how karen said....1/4 the first week along with her regular food, like we do the kids when introducing regular milk :smile: good luck!

Had been using cheaper stuff from the supermarket, but, changed onto James Wellbeloved's adult kibble over the course of 2 weeks. The difference in price is as remarkable as the effect. Daz had more energy, seemed more alert and his body changed shape, he "bulked up as opposed to hung down" LOL.
It's a lot more expensive, but worth it.
