Thread: All you Knowledgable Dog Food guys, gals and vets...A question?

    Default All you Knowledgable Dog Food guys, gals and vets...A question?

    In all the different foods I see the only real big difference is fat content between most athlete type foods and large breed puppy food. I see maybe a 1% difference in protein and other ingredients are even smaller. So my question is what's the big difference really. Can I not go ahead and feed what my trainer feeds and I'm feeding supplements, glucosamine, tuna oil and multi-vitamin? Is the there any real benefit other than lower fat?

    Recommend feeding a quality LB Puppy food until 12-14 months of age. There are differences. Take ProPlan Large Breed for example.

    Vitamin E- Puppy: 100 IU/kg, Adult: 460 IU/kg

    DHA/EPA- Puppy: .05%/ 0%, Adult: .10%/.14%

    Protein/Fat/Fiber- Puppy: 28/13.6, Adult: 26/12/4.5

    What its prominence suggest, and what all science confirms is that the dog is a creature of the nose- A. Horowitz.
