Default Reason for the amount on Kibble packages

We were at the vets yesterday and she told us some people refuse to buy puppy food so the companies are required to list the amount for puppies to thrive. Too bad they couldn't print this on the package too. Then some ignorant owners would just feed the adult amount.
Dogs would gain weight on puppy food too.

techie, I have always tried to find a food that was good for all ages, and not cycles.

I wonder too.
So if the amount suggested on the adult food is what a puppy should get, that's why so many adult dogs are fat?
Strange.

Most of the higher quality and grain free kibbles don't have puppy formulas. If the food is balanced with good ingredients it's not necessary. I never even look at the bag suggestions. Dogs are individuals. I check the ingredients, glance at the kcals per cup, and eye ball a starting amount. Then watch their condition and tweak.

Yes but puppy food (kibble or wet food) is a different formular isn't it? And over treating and giving the wrong treats can also lead to over weight dogs too. Like the landlord of a pub when his wife wasn't looking he would give their dog pork scratchings behind the bar too much fat and to salty
