55 No smelly side effects
Verified Purchase

We were using a different product that we got from the breeder but it gave him some rather smelly side effects. We switched to Pro Plan as that was what our last dog had and the smelly problem has gone away. It works for us and the puppy enjoys it.

55 Brilliant - just right !
Verified Purchase

You guys at Berriewood are the best. Website brilliant, not pushy or pretentious. Price great. Service excellent. Our puppy just loves this food - we chose the brand, because the family which had her used it, but we've stayed with it because she just loves it. She seems healthy on it - clear coat, bright eyes, and no doggy-death-breath. It smells fresh, and whilst we cannot comment on the taste, she seems to love it either as dinner or as a handy pocket-treat when out. We started her with a warm water mix and this food - but now she has it dry. Really pleased with the food, and also with Berriewood - keep up the good work, and thanks :-)

What age should my puppy move from optistart food to a an adult feed He’s a working gun dog breed lab.

  • VioVet Staff

It is recommended to move from a puppy to an adult diet when your dog is fully grown. This occurs at 12 to 18 months depending on the breed, small breeds maturing earlier and large/giant breeds later.
