    Hi,

    I recently switched to Wellness Puppy and am very happy with it.

    My next bag will be adult food, what do you use? Small bites? or the regular?

    Thanks,

    They don't carry the small bites here, so I just use the regular.
    Small bites appears to have a higher calorie content, as well as higher protein/fat. If you start with small bites and notice your dog is carrying too much weight you could always switch over to the regular.

    At what age are you switching to adult. I don't know if I switched too early. Mine is 9 months old and I already use Wellness Super 5 Mix adult and add a Tablespoon or 2 of the Chicken, Salmon, or Turkey toppers. He loves his food!:biggrin2:

    I don't think we have the small bites either- at least I don't remember seeing them in the store.

    I give Spencer Wellness Core which is the regular size - not too big. He loves it, but I think he'd eat dirt if I put it in his food bowl since he's such a chow hound.:wink2: I supplement with tons of veggies.

    I think 9 months is fine for switching for most dogs. Indy came already switched at 10 months. And at 11 months, I'm phasing Bacca over to adult (just trying to finish the last of the bag of puppy food!)

    Ginger is almost 10 mths old and I'll be transfering her to adult once this bag is finished. Our local hardware/feed/all around good store was having a 20% off sale. It included dog food, so it was worthwhile to get it now.

    I got the small bites and we'll see how she likes it. I 've been using a sample of the fish/sweet potato for treats. She thinks it's great--so that's the plan for now--until it changes.

    My significant other saw the price of the food and was throughly surprised. I'm careful with what I buy for us, but will often get generic vs name brands and here I am buying the best for Ginger.

    I wouldn't call most of the people at that site who are writing the reviews very knowledgeable.... Look at what they are advocating over it- purina, science diet (junk foods).
