Should I feed adult or puppy food?
Pixie turns a year old in just a few days. They say dogs should be put on adult food at a year old. Would it hurt to keep her on puppy food or do I really need to switch her to adult food?

I think the puppy food has alot of protein in it? Maybe switch to an adult formula of the same brand?

If you still have puppy food, use it up. It won't hurt her and there is no sense in letting the food go to waste. Just make your next food purchase adult dog food.

When Zero turned a year old, we used up what was left of his puppy food and then put him on the adult formula. We didn't have to "transition" him, as we used the same brand.

Now that we have Marley, we are constantly having to monitor that Zero is eating the adult food and not the puppy food, so he doesn't get fat, and that Marley is eating the puppy food and not the adult food, so he gets the nutrients he needs to grow healthy. Throw in Tia coming home in 4 weeks, and that's 3 dogs to monitor, LOL!
