I got my puppy Diamond, a week ago, and I currently have her on the same food as the breeders which is Purina Puppy Chow

But should I keep her eating that or should I change to something else?

Thanks! afro

Hi, PuppyPrism!

Purina Puppy Chow is one of the worst puppy food brands because of the high content of corn and "mystery" meat. At least, in my opinion that is.

I strongly recommend Acana - All Life Stages - Small & Large Breed - which comes in various flavors & variants. The process for switching her daily food is quite simple.
Because Diamond should be eating either three or four times a day, mix a day's worth of food and then divide it into equal amounts for the scheduled feedings. For the first two to three days, mix 75 percent of the Puppy Chow with 25 percent of the new food. For the next two to three days, include equal portions of both foods. For the next two to three days, mix 25 percent old food with 75 percent new food. Then your pup should be ready to continue with only, without any diarrhea, vomiting or indigestion issues.

Please PM me if you have any more questions, ponder my food selection or my method is unsuccessful.

Best of luck.

^^^^
I agree, Another good brand to try would be Enkanuba or Science Selective. Smile

Thanks! I didn't know the Puppy Chow was bad! :O I'll switch to the Acana, because we have that at our pet store...
