Continue feeding your puppy the food that you have taken home with you. If you choose to feed your puppy a different food, do so over a few days time slowly introducing new food into diet, and follow the feeding directions on the dog food bag.
***With a large breed puppy, I recommend using a food with around 24% protein and 12% fat content. The puppy foods have a higher protein and fat content that a growing GSD does not need. To prevent issues of faster growth; we want our puppy to grow as slowly as possible, putting less stress on their bones.***
For years, I have not recommended any brand with grains, soy or wheat. In my experience, German Shepherds do not tolerate these ingredients. They may tend to have loose stools, diarrhea or gas not to mention that grains aren’t good for any dog or cat. Check the bag ingredients before buying the food, and I do recommend the higher quality food. The positive about these feeds is that the dog will require less feeding and will produce less stools. I also like some of the canned dog foods, but there are only a few that have the good ingredients!
Always read the labels!
