    Default food rec

    New pyr owner here, picking up a 8-week old puppy next week.

    Three quick questions:

    (1) Vet recommended Hill's Science Diet (Large Breed Puppy) or Purina Pro Plan (Large Breed Puppy). Any preference between the 2 with experienced pyr owners? Was going to pick up a bag in next few days to try to transition him to one.

    (2) Anyone use a slow-feeding stainless steel bowl or just a regular stainless steel bowl.

    (3) Any recs on dog shampoo. Had been recommended Vetinary Formula Snow White.

    Congratulations on the new pup!

    Whatever you choose, make sure to transition your puppy from what he/she is currently eating to the new food to avoid upset tummy. That being said, vets will generally always recommend those two brands for any breed. Long story, but our Pyr has digestive issues, we switched from vet-recommended Hillís you Fromme which is a nice choice for large breed dogs, and finally have settled her tummy with GI sensitive care by Royal Canin. You will get a lot of different advice on the right food - from raw food purists to those who swear by supplements - but ultimately make sure you are feeding a good, balanced kibble without too much of her diet coming from extras (bully sticks, training treats etc.) of course made for large breed and right age. Fromme is a good brand to consider for Pyrs.

    Fromm Gold large breed! It's a fantastic food for the giant breeds. There's a reason any time on any forum that people ask about food, half the responses are people recommending Fromm. Also hold off on using whitening shampoo until your dog is a few months old, it can be too harsh for puppy skin. Also be aware that unlike other breeds, Pyrs very rarely need bathed.
