Large breed puppy foods are unbalanced and deficient. I have raised many large and giant breed dogs, using food for “all life stages”. During the growing stage, the puppy needs to be fed and EXERCISED. If he doesn’t get the needed exercise skeletal problems develop. I now own a 120# crossbred dog who has never eaten one kernel of large breed bs food, and is beautiful and sound.
Hi Haley, if you are looking for LGP food for the pup, (which I know Corgis have some hip issues but the rate at which they grow compared to a large breed still leaves me skeptical on the calcium to phosphorus needs) I would head over to the forums and check out in the canine nutrition subforum Hound Dog Moms post about LGP Foods. There is a ton of research, read the first 2-3 pages, and then go on to page 36ish and hit the list of approved foods. Fromm Large Breed Puppy I believe is on there. Fromm Gold is my first bag of food I always put a new puppy on after the initial first few weeks of feeding what the breeder was on for adjustment. It’s easily tolerated and a good transition food. Good luck, post pictures, because corgi puppies are hard to beat 🙂
