High Performance for a Pup?

Postby JPDVM2014 » Wed May 16, 2012 3:29 pm

I asked this in another thread trying to find an alternative to Diamond foods, and I'm thinking about trying out Pro Pac. The only question I have is should I just do the regular adult food or the High Performance? My Griff is a little over 6 months old. I just don't want to feed her too "hot" and cause any problems. I know that there is the risk of weight gain since she isn't working too hard, but I would just be able to control that with feeding quantity correct? I am mainly just concerned about the 30/20 protein/fat ratio. I don't know whether those numbers are too high for a puppy. Thanks.

I'd shoot for a 26/16 with the right ingedients.. Low grain, no added vegetable oils, the usual stuff...... Amp it up when needed...

Consider a RAW diet! If not, a good 30/20 should be no problem. Feed less. It's a calorie thing!

Alright, thanks for the responses. Lol, Calvin, I like how persistent you are. I will do it someday, but I just don't see it working for me right now.
