Default How soon is too soon?

Choosing what to feed my puppy has been by far the most challenging part of owning him.

Today one of the ladies at petsmart put the bug in my ear that I should think about converting Roenick (5 months) to adult formula. She said that this would prevent putting stress of his joints from rapid growth.

Roenick is currently on blue buffalo limited ingredient grain free puppy formula. I switched him to this as he didn't seem to cope well with the blue buffalo wilderness (too much protein??)

Let me know what you guys think!

It's a bit early in my opinion to switch to an adult formula. I wouldn't do it before 8 mths of age.
