Cody is 12wks old. He has been on Iams Smart Puppy food. We are pretty rural and I can only find the Iams in Large Breed or Smart Puppy. I haven't found any Large Breed Puppy food. Is it better to keep him on the puppy food for a year or to switch him to the adult food? My breeder had said to finish the bag she sent and then switch to the Large Breed. I'm just confused. I know Cody needs the extra nutrition now but I've also heard that puppy food can cause rapid growth that is dangerous in large breeds. Can someone give me some advice? I'm going to check the feed stores around here as well. I know there is a good dog/cat food supply place about 45 minutes away but I don't know what they carry. I'll give them a call as well. Any input is appreciated.

Hi there....
I'm feeding Boone, Science Diet Large Breed Puppy currently. I know that you can have it shipped. I'm not sure how much extra this is since the pet superstore is just down the road from me. (My wallet isn't happy about that, but Boone sure is).

You can find what you need on there, and order by calling toll-free: 1-888-839-9638.
They will ship it if you're in America, and it doesn't cost much extra, plus you'll only have to do it for the first year.
I've always heard that it's very important for them to be on a large breed puppy formulation because you don't want bone structure compromised at all.
