There's no reason for you to feel stupid for not knowing it . . . since it's pretty much a crock If you were dealing with a large breed, THEN you'd either need to go with a large breed puppy formula or an all stages food.

But . . . "adult puppy?"

I agree with others in that.... 1) Border Collies are a medium breed. Not "large", by any means! 2) I have never even heard of "adult puppy food". 3) The nutritional needs of a puppy are no different than that of an adult dog, besides needing MORE calories to grow. Puppy food is, generally, not necessary. 4) A high quality all-life-stages food is ideal!

Check out: Canidae, Innova, Orijen, Natural Balance, etc.

I never take a vets advice about food.Teddy went to the vet yesterday and the vet told me I fed him bad food(eagle pack holistic)He wants me to change him to Eukanuba,Sciece diet,Medacal or rx diet. Like ah No.I mean I know Eagle Pack holistic is not the best but I think its better then any of those and Teddy eats it.When it comes to dogfood he is picky.

I bet you he sells both of them.

Oh, and what the heck does "Adult puppy" mean? Aren't those two words mutually exclusive?

No..The vet only has the one brand food.

I guess she was meaning to say Large Breed Puppy.

Like I said, I got a big bag..So I will let him eat it up and then look for a better food.

I think eagle pack holistic is a good food. And if your dog does well on it, great!

If she meant Large Breed Puppy, and told you those were the only two brands that made it, then she outright lied to you . . . I think I'd be checking into other vets.
