this is stated in our pamphlet from our breeder. Our vet disagrees. We did feed an all ages food(purina pro plan) for the first 4 weeks that we have had her. She is 18 weeks(born may 5th) and only 16 lbs. The vet said she was a tad on the small side. The vet did not mention food at this visit but we decided to switch to puppy food(purina pro plan) after we were told she was a tad under sized. What do you guys think. Should they be fed puppy food or not? Is 16 pounds at 18 weeks a big deal or no? I got a rough height measurement of about 16 inches ish. Just wondering what the general consensus on the matter. We figured if she was a tad small we would switch to puppy food for the extra calories. Plus the vet was not a fan of not feeding puppy food. Our pamphlet from the breeder states... "poodle puppies do not eat puppy food. it will cause their bones to develop too fast and their growth rate to be more than their frame can handle. Instead we feed a high quality dog food, and allow up to twice the amount of manufactures suggestions" Thanks for any advice and or opinions.
