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.

We are getting our puppy in a week he'll be 8 weeks old. I bought "taste of the wild" dog food but it seems I bought the adult one. I wanted to know 1) should i not feed him this and buy puppy food instead and 2) when should i switch him to this?

Thanks

I think the general rule is to transition to adult food when your puppy is about a year old.  You probably should see what puppy food he is being fed now and get some of that.  If you want to feed him something else, you can get a small bag of the original food and gradually introduce the new food.  That reduces chances of upset stomachs and...well, poop issues!

Good luck! Smile

EDIT: Regarding the transition to adult food, that's what I heard, at least. I guess it depends on who you ask.

I know TOTW has an all stages food, so check to see if that's what you got. I switched my pup over when she was six months old, there really wasn't much of a difference in the nutrient levels and she did fine on the adult food. But its always best to start off with the food they are currently eating and then transition over after about two weeks, it helps with the settling in process.

My vet said if you use a good quality food then you could start the transition to adult at 10 mo to a year and suggested to go at 10 mo with Bourbon since he is a larger dog for the breed already 54 lbs so he should top out at the top end of the standards.
From what I understand the puppy food has higher calories, higher nutrients and some have the gluco/chon for the joints and higher vitamins in them. I would assume that a TOTW would be closer to a regular puppy food. You could always buy puppy food and use the adult for as training treats and toy stuffers.
