absolutely you can!!! My younger dogs started RAW as soon as they got here, I tried doing the puppy food, but it was too much work, it was easier for me to feed them RAW like the older dogs. :thumbsup:

Yup! Olive and Ginny (foster pit and mal) were both raised on raw from the moment they got to my house (at 10 and 7wks).

He looks great now, so you can keep feeding him what you are, or switch, it's up to you. I do feed TOTW to my own dogs, from puppyhood, this is a couple 9-month-old puppies who ate TOTW since weaning:

She is brindle. Here she is at 15 months:

She's not actually mine, I bred her, but she belongs to a friend. Her co-breeder refers to her as "mahogany brindle", but I can never keep all that stuff straight, so I just call her brindle. lol It was hard for me to give her up because I loved the color so much, but her brother was a better choice for my household.

We fed Peanut puppy food till the vet said she was a year old - I think she was really a few months older than a year because I think they underestimated her age.

She was the same weight she is now 45ish lbs when she showed up at our door somewhere between 6 and 10 months old. She might have even been a year then. I fed her puppy food for 5 months.

I think of most pit bulls as being medium size dogs - Peanut is a smallish medium.

if they are going to top out over 50lbs they should be fed large breed puppy food.

I am currently on TOTW and my pup loves it...throw in some green tripe in there and it's a done deal. I haven't been to the vet to have him checked out but im assuming he's around 50lbs.

Hi yall ,

Short update about the nutrition part i switched over to a complete raw diet ,comparing to the dry kibbel ,this is the top of iceberg or the nose of the samon ! Damn he likes this !

Far more energie ,and his stool (is this the right word for sh**tt ?) is looking great ,is less then when he was on dry food !
So its quite a little .

Great and thanks to yall who put the effort in giving me advice on this matter :)
