    I have a question. At what age do you switch a Bernie from large breed puppy food to large breed adult ?

    I switched my dogs food at 6 months because it was giving him loose bowels.

    I wondered too when to switch to adult but my breeder said the protein is a key factor in her choice of food. Somewhere in the 26-29 percent range. Her experience has shown too high of protein can cause problems ....one being skin problems? I was given a list of her preferences and went with “victor premium” this isn’t a puppy food but a high quality adult formula with a lower protein content. My pup dose get a immune building supplement and joint supplement fresh veggies yams carrots etc. he seems to be doing great with this regimen. Also a probiotic I’m careful on veggies don’t want his stools too loose bananas are great to balance things out. I think he better then I do lol

    We feed Victor professional since we have berners in all different life stages and this specific one is good for pregnant dogs along with pups too :) I love Victor!
