    Our 3 month old boxer puppy Larry is on blue buff puppy food and doing fine on it. I was told to put him on a large breed puppy food. Any advice and what about totw all life stages for a puppy.

    The boxer is actually a medium-sized breed, not a large breed, so generally they do not need large breed puppy food. However if your puppy came from oversized boxer parents and you expect that your pup will exceed 80-90 lbs when full grown (which is not uncommon in the US), I would consider that to be large and in that case I think a large breed puppy food would be acceptable.

    Any food marked "All Life Stages" is just that, suitable for any age. :)

    Charlie had Large breed puppy food, but ONLY because his father was GIANT and was 95lbs and still trim and fit. Charlie is 80 lbs full grown.
