Garret - mix it in with the dog food you are currently feeding at a 70% regular and 30% puppy and you should be fine.

Things to watch for is loose stool and if that happens reduce the 30% to say 10%.

it will do it some good, most puppy food is just higher in protein. alot of people worry about what they give their dogs, but dogs in the wild eat what they can when they can. I feed my dogs a lot of leftovers and they look great. they also do not have sensitive stomachs because they are used to a changing diet from an early age. if you want to stick with dog food however, purina is not very good and for the same money you can get dog food called chicken soup for the dog lovers soul. it is maybe 5 bucks more but well worth it when you look at the ingredients.plus youll feed less.

I use Tast of the Wild. It runs pretty expensive, around 40 to 50 bucks for a 30 pound sack, but I can feed my 65 lb dog on only 4 cups a day. He has been on it since a puppy and performs great on it. My mom and brother are feeding their dogs the same food, ones a few months away from 2 and the other is almost 3 months old. You can get it at Tractor Supply Company, or more than likely any of your local feed stores. I actually found it ten bucks cheaper at the local feed store.
