2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

PostSubject: 4Health Adult vs Puppy   Sun Jan 26, 2014 6:35 pm

Hey everyone! I have a 7 year old husky and a 6 month old husky. My 6 mo old is not eating as much as he used to. He seems to only want the adult food that I give to the 7 yr old. I don't think he's eating enough but I can't make him eat. If I were to put the adult food in his bowl he would probably eat it in seconds. Is it too early to take him off the puppy food? Or maybe mix it?

Thanks!

Okay here is my story on food switching.

We purchased her and the breeder had her on Native.

Switched to Purina (let the lols and you're dumb's commence now)

Realized Purina is bad, switched to Natures Recipe. Not a bad brand, still wasn't satisfied overall

Switched to Blue Buffalo. Okami started to get sick throwing up, diarrhea (after 3 months of being on it.) Went to the Vet. Said it was stomach sensitivity. Okay...

Switched to 4Health from Tractor supply. Mind you everything so far has been puppy versions.
She did great on 4Health puppy, extremely satisfied. She started to get vomit-y and diarrhea-y again... then I asked around here if 4Health was really any good? Still satisfied with the brand and responses... read somewhere that pups can be switched to adult food as early as (not to be confused with should) 6 months. She was like 10 months old... so I switched her to the Grain Free Turkey Potato 4Health... have not had any issues ever again, and she is maintaining good health, weight, coat, happiness.

Thanks for sharing! Today I mixed a little adult food with his puppy food and he was fine. I will probably mix with the remainder of his puppy food to switch him over to adult. I had always fed my husky iams until the breeder that I bought Mufasa from introduced me to 4health.

Thanks!

I notice that Loki gets bored of his food after about 2-3 months. Once it is in his bowel my other dogs food is not too interesting after a short time. I plan on finding 2-3 foods/flavors he likes and rotate them.

Rayzor was like that not long after we got him. The person we got him from had him on one brand, so we got that for him. After a bag and 3/4 of another bag, he would eat a few bites then go do something else. If he could get to my mother-in-laws dog food (which is behind two closed doors), he would eat what was left in her bowl. So we figured that he was just bored of the same food. We bought Iams, and mixed it in with what was left of the other food. He ate the Iams for a while then stopped eating that. After a while we finally just decided that if we could find different flavors in a brand he likes, then we would just change flavors every so often. We switched him to adult food at about 7 months because it was becoming difficult to find puppy food in flavors he would eat, but since then changing flavors hasn't been a problem.
