    Let me guess...the brand the vet sells ?

    I also can't tell from your picture...vets get a nice commission from the kibble they sell. There is plenty of good quality puppy kibble out there...it's your puppy...your choice. I was told by rescue about 3 years ago that you can start your puppy on adult kibble at 4 months of age now...so something else to think about.

    I would probably lean towards B. I tend not to feed my puppies puppy food. I put them straight onto a good quality adult. I also like to grow my pups lean to reduce stress on their joints as they grow. I do feed raw meaty bones as well.

    'Yvonne Haynes' - How old is your pup ?

    If your pup has just come from a breeder - then I would be feeding the pup what the breeder was. Upset tummies in young pups can be life threatening. If you want to make changes to a pup's diet - you do it very slowly.
