When to change from puppy to adult dog food?

It is normal for first-time tutors to have doubts about the right time to switch from puppy food to adult food. After all, as the animal grows it is necessary that the food adapts to its new nutritional needs.

Ideally, this transition should be guided by the veterinarian who accompanies your pet, but in general, it is assumed that adulthood begins at 12 months of age in small and medium-sized dogs.

Large and giant breed puppies, on the other hand, are considered adults after 18 months, and some reach this mark only after that age.

Knowing the stages and pace of growth of the dog is essential to not make mistakes when choosing the best dog food and the right amount.
