After reading a previous post regarding large breed puppy food, I realized I might be feeding my 4mo pup the wrong kind of food. When we initally rescued Roxy, we were told she was a pit-bull. Figuring she would be in the 40 lb range, I started her on Wellness Core for puppies. Well, she is now 17 weeks and at a whopping 50lbs. Not sure what breed she actually is - but she's gonna be big. So that being said, any reccomendations for large breed puppy food?

The calcium/phosphorus in the CORE puppy food is 1.5%/1%, which is more or less the perfect ratio for a growing large breed and the thing that is most crucial to them in regards to their food.

If your puppy is doing good on this food, I would leave them on it.

Thanks Mulder! That makes me feel better. I've always owned adult dogs - this is my first puppy, so I was a little unsure about nutrition.
