When to change to adult food
Sat Oct 5, 2013 06:55

It's time to order more kibble...when is the appropriate time to change to adult food? Darla is 8 months old and totally not interested in her food. I have to send away for Acana and Orjen and I was wondering if I changed to Nature's Instinct Grainfree if that would work? It is readily available in my area. I found a site,, that rates dog food and this had 5 stars just like Acana and Orjen foods. Any advice is appreciated.

I learned a valuable not add wet food to the kibble...My Darla had loose bowels for a full day...stick with the is so much easier for all!


PS...Darla is a darling..we love her more each day! She is 8 months old and weight 16 lbs. Aspen and Triton litter.
