I don't ever use puppy food. When they are started on solids they will get
the regular adult dog food put in a blender with yogurt. Only had bad
pasterns once and that was long ago when I did not know any better and used
puppy food.

Huh.
 
I would credit genetics for soft pasterns, lol.
 
I do use puppy formula for the first 5-6 months, but then again, I haven't  
seen pastern issues in quite a while.
 
I have heard that cheap food (i.e. corn based) works wonders for  
pano...probably the same theory, reduces protein, slows growth a bit...

We also  do NOT use Puppy food past the age of about 5 weeks.  It is  too
calorically dense, nutrient dense, and often causes more  problems.  When we
see puppies come here with soft pasterns it is  usually directly related to
using puppy food.  We get the owners to  put them on a standard adult food,
no frills for awhile and "viola" the  pasterns are just  fine.
