I currently feed TOTW prairie to my crew because Vernon can't have corn/grains and they all do really well on it. Would TOTW be ok to feed an 8 week old spoo?

If I remember right, we had Lexi per the breeders instructions, on adult food at that age.

Harry used to eat the puppy version. He was okay on it. But I moved to canine caviar after the the initial bag. Partly as he became a slightly picky eater but largely as its hard to by TOTW where I live

YIKES! I just re-read this and realized you said 8 weeks, NOT 8 months. Lexi was 8 months old before we switched her off of puppy food.

Taste of the Wild does have a puppy version. What I'd probably do if I were in your situation and you wanted to feed the same food to both dogs is put the adult back on "puppy" food (the biggest difference is the amount of calories, but the puppy food has a slightly different ratio of certain things, namely Calcium and Phosphorous, that are geared toward a growing puppy).

You will need to decrease your adult dog's food intake if you switch to puppy food until your puppy is older, because of the difference in calorie content.

I just.started Max on Taste of the Wild mixed with his Purina and going very slowly. It's puppy and hoping within the next couple of weeks to have him on it completely. He isn't fussy..eats anything.

Default puppy food

I would ask the vet, but I do think that switching your adult to puppy food is a good option. We're getting a puppy soon and our adult eats TOTW so she will be switching.

I switched the adults back to puppy food when we added a new kid and then when the puppy was old enough everyone switches to the adult food.
