Can i stop feeding puppy food to my 6 month old lab?

Just wondering if i can stop feeding Cole my 6 month old lab with puppy kibble and go onto something more grown up. Thinking of Chappie Dry (chicken and rice)?

Yes, adult food is fine - I never feed puppy food at all, money making gimmick IMO

However I would rethink your choice of dry food - Chappie kibble is very poor quality I'm afraid. What are you using at the moment?

This thread might help with choosing a good kibble - http://www.petforums.co.uk/dog-healt...ood-index.html

We have moved Cookie onto Junior kibble now as she'll be 6 months on Monday, we feed her on James Wellbeloved and she loves it

I agree with Sixstar - she can go onto adult food but preferably not Chappie.
