i've done alot of research on when to change barney over to adult food but everyone seems to have different answer. i realize that bassets have a somewhat different growth pattern than other dogs...alot of length..alot of bone. he's on chicken soup for the puppy lover..he's alittle over 5 months and on the 13th of july, he weighed 32 pounds. i'm worried about him ending up overweight and read that the puppy food has more calories than adult. i figured that if anyone could help me it would be you guys. you've been there, done that...and i always find help while lurking around on this forum.
