Default Grain Free Puppy food??

Does anybody give their puppy grain free puppy food??

I just started mine on wellness core puppy since he's 16 weeks and he threw up a little of it that I mixed into his old food this morning

Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.

Blue Wilderness and Orijen make great quality grain-free food for puppies as long as your pup does not have sensitivities to chicken these are high quality kibble.

Your pup just may take a while to get used to the level of protein in wellness core. Just give it a little time, but if the protein level simply proves to be too much for his system to adjust to maybe try blue buffalo freedom. It's grain free without the high protein levels.

Both of my girls are on Blue Buffalo Freedom. Pheona is on adult formula & Murphy is on puppy formula.

Yep if you need a lower protein one, Blue Freedom is pretty good. We're in the middle of switching Bruno to Earthborn Holistic Meadow Feast which is a grain free all life stages but also lower protein like the Freedom because all the grain free puppy ones are all chicken and I want to see if he has a bit of sensitivity to chicken (really stinky gas (I know some gas is normal) and once a day loose stool). The Meadow Feast is lamb only.

Thanks for the input so far.

I mix in very little into his current puppy food at the moment. Trying to also give him a little more size Bc he got sick when he was a little younger so he has a few lbs to make up.

The higher protein amount will give him a little more size quicker...correct?

So I give him %50 his old food and %50 wellness core and he has thrown up now three times in the 2 days of feeding three times a day. He then proceeds to eat his throw up and cleans up for us.

What do you guys suggest now??

You went straight from 100% old to 50/50? If so back way off. Try 25/75 for a few days, 50/50, and then 75/25 and so on. As long as you don't suspect a permanent intolerance (i.e. he'll never get used to it for some reason) you could even do a lengthy change like start at 90% old 10% new and increase the new by 10% every other day. Takes about 20 days at that rate but you might need the time if he's having problems.
