Recommendations for Pom switching to adult food

1068 Views 13 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Snuggles
I just asked at the vet's office today when we can switch our Pom to adult food. She will be seven months this week. They said we can start switching any time. Our other dog is on special dog food so so much for using the same stuff.

I am curious though. Is puppy food more fattening? Being a Pom we have to be careful she doesn't gain too much weight. She is ten pounds on our scale but is a taller Pom. The vet originally said she would be around this weight so I am hoping she is finished growing.

Any recommendations. The only one they told me not to get is something like Roy. The receptionist likes Science Diet but I am open to suggestions now.

I would not recommend Science Diet. Some that have worked for Bailey are Blue Buffalo, Natural Balance and Wellness.

Some other good foods are;
Taste of the Wild
Wellness CORE
Nature's Variety Instinct and Prarie
Solid Gold

I believe Petco sells Wellness and Natural Balance. Both of these have healthy weight formulas. Wellness CORE has a reduced fat version and is also grain free. Apparently Natural Balance now gets it's duck from abroad so you may want to steer clear of their duck formulas. They may sell Innova and their grain free version, EVO, which also come in reduced fat formulas. I'm not sure if Petco sells any of the others.
