Default Puppy or Adult Food

Hi, I'm new here and found this site on a random search. I have a 5 month old lab puppy that is being fed a large breed puppy food. I also have a six year old mastiff and he's on a basic adult food. It's become a nuisance to go to two different stores and buy two 20lb. bags. I've always owned giant breeds (mastiffs & danes) so this is my first time ever feeding puppy food. My question is would it be ok to switch my puppy to an adult food as long as it's a good quality? This way I'd only have to go to one store and could get a 40/50 lb bag instead of two 20's.

First, what brand food do you feed....

As long as it is an "All lifestages" formula you should be alright...

Yeah I would go for an all Life Stages (ALS), a really good one is Canidae. it also has a store locator on the site so you can fins stores around you that carry it.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Ditto on the Canidae All-life Stages. Another good one is Nature's Variety.

I would switch to an All Life Stages food as well. Visit to learn more about foots and the necessity (or not) to feed large breed puppy foods. I feed all of my crew Innova, I have a GSP/lab mix (almost 2 years), aussie mix (15 months), and a 7 mo. mastiff puppy. Good luck.
