do i need to transition feed my 15 month old gsd from royal canin gsd puppy dry food to royal canin gsd adult food?
Answer by ChewySep 19, 2019
If your pet has a sensitive stomach you may want to transition. Otherwise, transitioning isn't needed. The recipes are similar but they contain a couple of different vitamins and nutrients that's specifically needed for either puppies or adult dogs

Not So Great

ROYAL CANIN seemed great for many years but recently my dog has been getting diarrhea from it. I really realized this when for the second time I ran out went to a local store for dog food and had to put him on another dog food. His diarrhea instantly resolved (twice). Not sure if the company is cutting costs or what but the quality isn't there and it's overpriced.

Best food

This is my second GSD, and I decided to keep on this puppy food. With previous dogs, I tried different food and ended with all kinds of health issues. So far, this is the best food, and I know it is expensive and sometimes outstock. Dog is like a human. You have to feed them good food.

had so many issues getting my German Shepard puppy to eat and we started with Hill's Prescription diet Large breed puppy due to the info we obtained. After much time and trying so many things I looked into Royal Canin and realized they make breed specific foods. Yay they also have one for German Shepard puppies so I figured it was also for the specific needs etc. so bought some and another Yay! she is eating it! so Thankful this is great food since my baby eats it So Thankful I hope and pray it may work for anyone else that has a picky eater that really needs large breed puppy food Royal Canin may have what you need to!

Great Food

Mazey was having trouble with her previous dry food. We switched to Royal Canin because our other Dog eats The Royal Canin Hydrolized food. We didn't know there was a German Shepherd Puppy specific food. Both Mazey and Mya are GSD. Mazey is 7 months now and has been on this food for a few months now. She eats it up with no problem and her tummy issues have been resolved. I just wish it were a little less costly.

Perfect for dogs who are not food motivated

First of all, I love that my puppy has to chew the kibble before swallowing. He is not at all food motivated, but I can tell that he absolutely without a doubt loves this kibble. The breeder had us take home the kibble that he was feeding the puppies, but our puppy would not touch it no matter what we did. Luckily we already had this kibble available and we tried to transition safely, but he would only eat Royal Canin instead. Thankfully it did not upset his stomach!
