Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
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. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Okay so I already have a rescued 3 year old pitbull male he's on TOTW. When I get my puppy is it okay to put her on the same food. I had one breeder tell me the protein content was to high for growing bones but then another breeder told me it's not the protein but the calcium. So would it be best to put her on the same food with like a vitamin supplement or a large breed puppy food?

Huskies aren't a large breed so large breed food would be unnecessary. I would look into getting TOTW puppy food for the pup (if they have it) and you can switch to the adult food when the puppy's about 6 months old (that's what I did with my pup and she's been fine.) I wouldn't do vitamin supplements unless they were recommended by a vet because you can overdose the dog on vitamins.

TOTW is an all stages food you would be fine feeding it but upping the food stated for a puppy, you could get the puppy kind but don't need to.
