Sorry for another food question y'all, but looking through the search tool, I've read numerous threads with different information and opinions and just cannot nail down what I should do.
Here's my dilemma, I have a 5 month old black lab male that I am training to run in some hunt tests and be my hunting partner. I've had him since 7 weeks, and needless to say he is my best friend and I want to ensure that he is around for many years to come. Currently, I feed him 4 cups per day (two for breakfast, two for dinner) of TSC's 4Health Puppy Food. He has a great coat, he was 43 pounds last week when we got his adult shots at the vet last week, and he seems to have decent stools that are only occasionally a bit runny and most of that is probably my fault due to the taste of table food now and again.
The more I read, the more I realize how little 'health' knowledge I have when it comes to my pup. So here's my question, do I switch foods and if so to what? I feel like Eukanuba or Pro Plan puppy food are the favored brands and readily available most places. If I switch foods I want it to better my pup and not just to feed my pup a popular food. I do not want to increase chances of hip problems etc.
Sorry if I have gone in a circle with this question, I just cannot find an individual thread with the answer to my issues.
Thanks in advance for the help, and sorry if I have asked a repeat.
