We do know PPP and they do have a feeding chart / reference chart on the bag. If you are going to move the pup over to PPP .... start to slowly mix the PPP into the Science Diet .... 25%/75%, then 50%/50%, 75%/25% then 100% of the new food and stretch this change over over a number of days. Switch to quick and have the potential to have a dog with the runs until their stomach settles on the new food.
If you are moving to Pro Plan, and want to stick with a puppy food, be sure to get the "Large Breed" Puppy versus the "Puppy" food. Your other option with Pro Plan is to move to the Performance food (30/20) if this is going to be an active hunting dog. The Performance food is an "all life stages" food and many breeders who hunt, test and trial dogs and feed Pro Plan Performance, wean their pups directly onto this food.
Good luck with the pup!
