Curious where the cut-off is for regular to large breed puppy? Not sure as to why one is better then the other. I mean, I currently feed Orijen LBP to my two dogs, both about 7.5 months old. One is 66lbs, the other is 54lbs (Lab/Shepherd/Husky mixes). Should I too be only using regular puppy? My 66lb guy is very lean, the 54lb'er is new to my house, not even a week, but is already slimming down with the new food, was 59lbs...I usually recommend Orijen puppy, Innova puppy, Wellness puppy, and Blue Buffalo puppy in that order. But I would stick with the regular puppy kibble, not the large breed puppy, since huskies are a medium breed and the large breed puppy kibble is not necessary.
I hear you, everyone needs to do their own thing, and what works best for their pet. I was at a local pet store today (one with fairly knowledgeable staff, not petsmart) and I posed the question.. where's the cutoff for large breed, and according to her, it was anything over 50lbs as an adult. Not sure if it was a canned answer but, I think it's gotta be pretty close, I mean it's somewhere in the 50-60lb mark, and between 50 and 60lbs there isn't much difference.There's no harm in feeding large breed puppy to a medium breed, it's just not necessary for the breed of the original poster. But if SiberianPuppy09 wants to buy large breed puppy then more power to him/her, I'm just saying it's not necessary. Siberians are a medium breed ranging from 35-60 lbs, although there are the odd cases of much larger huskies like someone I know has a 98 lb purebred adult male husky. I have a 55 lb adult male husky that I would not feed a large breed food to. As a personal choice, I wouldn't feed LBP food to anything whose expected adult weight was under 60 lbs, but that is just me and is by no means a recommendation or guide for anyone to follow.
