    My Great Pyr had a litter of pups 1 1/2weeks ago. I usually give them Pedigree, but switched them to Iams Lamb & Rice since she's nursing. Is thisOK- or is there something better that sin't too expensive? I have 2 other big dogs that have to eat the food too, and my Bernese is allergic to Beniful and Ol' Roy.

    Thanks!

    (yes- I switched it gradually- a little more Iams in the food every day)

    I would switch her to a good quality puppy food.


    Oh, and can you mail me one of those pups in 6.5 weeks? [​IMG]


    I just saw that they're Berner mixes! [​IMG] Are you going to sell the pups? Are you planning on going to MD or NC soon? I really want one. [​IMG]

    I'd switch her to puppy food too. I feed my outside dogs Diamond Brand Naturals and my inside dog Tast of the Wild. Diamond has a good quality big puppy formula.

    Ahh- Ok. So she should eat puppy food?
    I guess I'll have to get 2 kinds then. I know the big boys would go through that like nothin, and probably be pooping like crazy.

    I'll have some pups available in early-mid December [​IMG] We're probably going to keep a couple.

    I'm pretty sure we're keeping the white one. There is one black one w/ white feet that is a boy (my son wants, but who knows) and all the rest are girls. I don't know where the brown one came from. Mom must have had some shepherd in her genes somewhere!
