I have never free fed. Just lately I have been giving him his first meal and leaving it out hoping he will eat. Maybe hes just not hungry in the morning than? Should I try and feed him his first meal in the afternoon?

I feed him SolidGold by the way...if it matters.

So, the AAFCO says 22%-25% is adequate for puppies. But, the test Orijen talks about says otherwise? Confusing.

At that age it probably wont make much of a difference. What are you feeding now? In my opinion, 42% protein is way too much.

So, should I be feeding Rambo a Large Breed puppy formula? He is about 42lbs(weighed him at vet) and almost 7months old. He should be around 55-60lbs as an adult.

most regular puppy foods contain calcium levels as high as 1.8%...is this ok?
