I accidentally bought large breed food, can I feed this to my regular sized dog?

Our Large Breed food is tailored to dogs weighing 25kg and over. If your dog weighs less than this, then our Adult food is better tailored to them, and we’d advise for them to stay on this if possible!

If you do decide to keep your dog on the Large Breed Adult food, please be aware of the calorific difference between the two foods:

Depending on which flavour you feed, the regular Adult food is between 348-359kcal per 100g, and the Large Breed Adult food is between 364-376kcal per 100g.

We would advise you to work out how many calories you were feeding your dog on their previous feed, and then adjust the amount you feed them of the Large Breed formula to ensure not to overfeed!
