When Bear was a youngun, we started him on a certain large breed puppy food, and about 6 weeks after starting the food, he stopped using his back legs. Numerous tests, x rays, etc later, turns out that the food was making his bones grow faster than the tendons and muscles could keep up, thus the pains he was having. We pulled him off of that food, and put him onto another brand where he did much better.

Kaos is also on a large breed puppy food, and doesn't seem to be having any problems.

I prefer to keep them on large breed puppy until they're about a year old, just a personal preference.
