Hey, I was just wondering if anyone had tried the new "Boxer Formula" from Eukanuba?
I've not heard or seen of the Eukanuba Boxer food, but I can say that Boxers are NOT a "large breed" dog, and shouldn't be on a large-breed diet. Boxers are mid-sized dogs... not a large breed.spoiledrottenboxers\";p=\"11132 said:I currently feed Roxy and Astro the "Iams Large Breed Puppy Formula"
Yes, very true; not quite so much of an issue for Boxers, really, as for Danes, who have a lot more growing to do! You could also feed adult food, or an all-life-stages food like Canidae, to the same effect. When I was feeding kibble, we switched to adult food after the first bag of puppy formula ran out - around 3-4 months of age. Now that I feed raw, of course, the puppies eat the same thing as the adults.Puppy formulas tend to have more protein in them which can promote faster growth in puppies leading to some of these skeletal and joint problems later on. They are formulating the large breed puppy foods with less protein and fat to try and slow down the growth.
