• Our 7 month old puppy currently eats Hill's® Science Diet® Puppy (Chicken Meal and Barley recipe). We want to switch him over to the Blue Buffalo brand puppy food because of the ingredients and benefits we've read about online. Would you recommend the switch? Also, he is getting closer in age to becoming an adult dog, which means we will eventually have to switch hi diet to adult dog food. Around what age should we begin the switch?

    Hi Elijah,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. The food that will be best for him and when to transition to adult food will depend on a few different factors including his age, weight, breed, activity level, and overall health. Your vet knows your pet and will be able to give you the best advice on this.
