    Default Large Breed VS Performance Formula

    Which do you prefer?

    I just bought a bag of Pro Plan Performance for my dog. I was shocked at the size of the kibble.. they are smaller than her puppy food.

    I thought adult hard food would be bigger so they'll chew and not swallow it whole.

    Which do you believe is more benificial for a dog that trains daily and will run hunt tests (Hopefully HAHAHA!)

    Default lg breed

    I fed Natural choice high energy for 6 years and my dog did great on it , the kibbles were smaller and they got stuck in his teeth often, after his surgery I switched him to Natural choice large breed almost the same food but kibbles are a little bigger, he likes it and is doing great on it he's been in a cage for 5 weeks and has not gained a lot of weight which was my goal. On the high energy he would get a little heavy in the summer when he wasn't working

    I feed a 50/50% mix of large breed and performance. Harder stools than if I feed 100% performance.

    Soft stools is why we went to large breed. Both real good stuff though
