When to switch to adult food?

I've heard mixed reviews on this matter and have a 6-7 month old husky thinking about switching to adult from puppy. Right now she's about 25 lbs and we feed her simply nourish: source grain free.
What are the pros/cons for putting a puppy on adult food before the traditional 1 yr mark?
I've heard that having a puppy on puppy good for too long can cause OVER growth and hip displaysia which is already a common problem with huskies. So would putting her on adult sooner help with that or..?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

The way I see it, is that puppy food traditionally contains a higher level of calcium for developing bones, as long as you are NOT feeding large breed puppy food you are ok. Now if you switch to an all life stage food you should be ok as well. I'm just in the group of belief that puppy food is of great benefit to a growing puppy vs adult food. The controversy on over growth and hd is because many people feed huskies large breed puppy food, which indeed could cause those problems, when huskies are not a large breed.

My breeder told me I could feed Kohdi the same food I still had in the house (unopened bag) from my previous Huskies...the food was all life stages as was the food the dogs/puppies were eating at the breeder. My vet however, suggested that giving Kohdi a puppy formula food would benefit him/his brain/joints and bones, etc...better than the all life stages food. So I did change his food to puppy formula. I changed Kohdi's food to adult around his first birthday, but I've heard they can really be eating puppy food til about a year and a half
