Acana Puppy Large Breed

    Hey guys, I have a question, is this a good food for my bully? I know bullies aren't large breed but in the label it says for dogs over 25kg so I got this one, and my dog seems to be liking it a lot more than vitality (maybe cus it smells better and has a stronger aroma). But I'd like to know if it's good? My dog's sire is clearly a lot more than 25kg, maybe around 40-50kg. Here's a pic for reference.

    My pup is now this big. Around 9kg or so...

    Another question, my pup licked some rat poison(the maid put the poison on sardines when I told her to wait as I was still feeding my pup and he wasn't caged yet), but he's ok now, it's been a week and he's normal and gaining weight. But, he seems to have some rash and sores, could it be from the rat poison?

    To be honest your dog's sire is over 25 kg because he's overweight, which is how most people keep their Ambullies. Might he still be past there if he wasn't? Dunno, but I doubt it. PErsonally I'd go with something that didn't have grain in it as the second highest ingredient, given the skin problems AmBullies often encounter. Here is the ingredient list:
    [h=3]Ingredients[/h] Chicken meal, steel-cut oats, deboned chicken, whole potato, peas, whole egg, deboned flounder, chicken fat, sun-cured alfalfa, chicken liver, herring oil, pea fiber, whole apples, whole pears, sweet potato, pumpkin, butternut squash, parsnips, carrots, spinach, cranberries, blueberries, kelp, chicory root, juniper berries, angelica root, marigold flowers, sweet fennel, peppermint leaf, lavender.
    [h=3]Supplements[/h] Vitamin A supplement, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin E supplement, niacin, riboflavin, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12 supplement, zinc proteinate, iron proteinate, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, selenium yeast, dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product

    Actually the sire is kinda big, as in big in build cus he's standard-xl in size. That's about the best brand dog food I can get from here, I even have to have it shipped from another city, and from what I understand from the local vet, he actually suggests some carbs from grains or rice since the climate here in the Philippines is pretty hot, the dogs burn a lot more calories faster. Dunno how correct that is though.

    There's standard and there's XL. A stacked shot would be better for determining size but regardless of build the sire is still overweight. If acana is the best you can get either go for that or consider trying a raw diet

    I don't have access to the sire anymore, but with regards to acana's puppy food, there's only puppy small breed and puppy large breed.
     
  6. Acana actually does have a medium breed puppy food. It's called "puppy and junior".

    After this bag I'll switch to that. The main difference is 4% fat content and 0.1% calcium right? I hope that's not too much of a problem.
