Started my puppy on Royal Canin, Large Breed. Went from 6lbs to 98lbs. Sent message to Royal Canin, what to change him to, now using royal Canin, bone and joint. He’ likes it! Coat is beautiful. Lovely Pink gums and mouth. Bit expensive, but they do have a saers club.May 18, 2010 at 2:03 pm #15311PitbullmomParticipant
When My youngest pit bull was younger she was on Iam’s large breed we now feed all our dogs which includes 4 pitbulls Prunea dog chow or Pedagree they love itMay 18, 2010 at 2:13 pm #15312annaerekson1Participant
I feed my Pitts Blue Buffalo, I used to feed the sweet potato and fish, but have also tried the chicken one. Unless your dog is super active, I wouldn’t feed any of the wilderness version, it can be a bit potent and give diarrhea. I have also found this website to be helpful as just a general rule.

I feed my pit bull Wellness puppy food, its all natural holistic goodness!!!! he has food allergies so this seems to work well for him, and it isn’t too expensive!!!May 18, 2010 at 2:37 pm #15314mommiepitParticipant
I have used Nutrumax lambs and rice for many years for my shiba inus and when I got the pits. They were put on that. Since the prices have gone sky for that brand. I found 4 Health lamb and rice for a reasonable price. I compare ingredients and they are almost the same. I mixed with their old food to make sure no one got upset tummies. I stay away with anything that has corn or beef. Corn is just a cheaper filler that makes them fat. Beef is hard for them to digest. The landmines in the yard aren’t huge. Their coat and body mass look great. I am pleased the food. I feed them twice a day fear of the bloat.
My girls also get raw baby carrots for treats. They love them and they are low fat. We get doggie bisquits also.May 18, 2010 at 2:54 pm #15315CorieLondonParticipant

I feed my boy Nutro Large Breed Puppy. It’s mostly protein. He’ll be fed Nutro Large Breed Dog when he’s of age.May 18, 2010 at 3:56 pm #15317shannonkwendtParticipant
Check out the website Dog Food Analysis. You might be surprised by how poorly Science Diet does. We do feed our dogs that, but only because we can no longer afford Natural Balance:

BLUE BUFFALO – all natural, she loves it and it’s good for her!!May 18, 2010 at 9:12 pm #15323sashaandhulkParticipant
I had my pit and pit mix on Nutro Natural Choice Lamb and Rice. Then once I started researching Nutro I found some very upsetting information. I then decided to start them on a more natural food and bought Blue Buffalo. One of my dogs did well on it while the other one was had a horrible reaction to it and vomitted to the point on needing IV fluids from the vet. So, after than incident a talked to my Vet and put them on Science Diet. I am still searching for a better alternative but they both do well on Science Diet.
