I am adopting a former puppy mill mom. She was abandoned in a crate with puppies & almost starved to death. She has been putting on weight, is up to over 50 lbs & is a small boxer. But the only way her foster folks have been able to keep it on her is to feed her puppy food & she is around 2.
I have read puppy food is too high in protein for a dog her age. She is eating Science Diet now. She was involved in a failed adoption where she ate Iams adult & kept weight on - when she went back to the foster home they switched her back to Science Diet adult & she shed pounds rapidly, so back to puppy food.
Any thoughts on how I should proceed?
