Question by Pink Robot: Best feeding for a borzoi puppy?
I have a 4 months old female borzoi puppy. My breeder suggested me to feed her with Pedigree puppy the first 4 months and then change it for adult recipe because the puppy recipe has more calcium than the adult recipe and the excess of this mineral is counterproductive for her growth because she’s a giant breed. I know Pedigree isn’t a good food and I changed it for the Hill’s Science Diet large breed puppy recipe. I checked the % of calcium in each food… for pedigree puppy is 1.1%, for S.D. large breed puppy is 0.7%, for S.D. large breed adult is 0.5% but I cant find the % for the Pedigree adult recipe. I ask my vet and he told me to give her the S.D. large breed puppy recipe for a whole year. Is this the best way for feeding my borzoi?
Thanks for your answers, but sadly in my country do not sell Canidae or Wellness…

NO NO NO!
Those are both terrible foods!
Let me let you in on a secret, Vets recommend Science Diet because they get paid for doing so.
Avoid: Pedigree, Beneful, Nutro, Alpo, Ol Roy, Kibbles N Bits, Bil-Jac,
Mighty Dog, Purina (including ProPlan),Ceser, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Eagle Pack (not to be confused with Eagle Pack Holistic)
and of course all grocery store brands of dog food!
I would switch to Canidae or Wellness.
