Hi, I have a shih tzu/Japanese chin mix and he's about 5 1/2 months now and he gets tired of one type of food pretty quickly. I mix his dry food with a bit of wet food to make it more enticing. Unfortunately, where I live doesn't have a vast variety of dog food, and 'puppy' food is even harder to find. So anyway, I won't have as much of a difficult time if I could finally feed him adult food. I would have a few more choices at least to switch it up. Anyway, how old do you think he should be before giving him adult dog food? Many thanks for your response.

You can put him on "adult" food anytime you want to. There is very little difference between puppy and adult food. "Puppy", "adult", and "senior" food is more of a marketing gimmic then any nutritional concern.

Yup, I started my puppy on adult food from day one. Puppy food helps there "bones grow faster,stronger," whatever it may be. Ever see dogs with extremely unproprotional long legs? Its because they had them on puppy food for too long - too much of a good thing.

there is a book out from a vet who turned all secrets on what vets say.

Puppy food being a huge one. It really is just a way to make money.

Also; a lot of those shots you need re-newed every year are actually good for a few! I'll try to see if I can find the book again.

I feed my dog Solid Gold. Its like organic food for dogs - absolutely no preservatives.
