My lab is about 6 months old now and I have decided to take her off the puppy food. I decided to feed her the diamond naturals as that is the best that I can afford. My question is this..... Should I feed her the large breed food or not? If I am correct, a lab is considered a large breed. Help me decide which diamond naturals food is best for her right now.

Thanks

I don't have a lab...but when I had Goldens...there was no such thing as "Large Breed Puppy" food. We always just switched our pups to adult dog food at around 6 or 7 months. You could compare the nutrients in the two and see what's the difference?

Maby i wasnt clear enough..... I am taking her OFF puppy food and am going to adult food. My question was should I just give her the adult formula or the large breed formula....

Some people don't feed puppy food at all, so I don't think it's a problem to go to adult food at 6 months, especially if she's already spayed. I have a Rottweiler, and I just use the regular Diamond Naturals, not Large Breed. I think "large breed" formulas are just gimmicks.

I know what you mean about the old days there not being Large Breed Dog Food .....years ago it was Puppy Food - Adult Food - Senior Food ----- now you can get just about anything for anything!

Very confusing!!

I read about large breed --- and what I can see is they've added extra vitamins to help the diseases that large breed dogs are common for....hip, joints, arthritis, etc...

IMO 6 months might be a little young for that....I would wait awhile for that change....I changed mine from Puppy Food to Adult Food when he was 8 months old ....Changed from Purina One to Blue Buffalo....and he is doing great!:)
