I've been feeding Cloud BLUE Buffalo brand dry & wet food and every time I go to Petsmart/Petco I always see different types to choose, from Puppies to Adult, to Senior dogs. I was wondering, at what specific age(s) are they considered a "puppy", an "adult", and a "senior"? Even with Nutri-Cal, I still buy the "puppy" kind just because I don't really know when to change to an "adult" product since Cloud is 2, approximately almost OR is at 4lbs. And I was told that 'dog ages' vary by their weight/size, instead of the whole "add 7 years to human years = dogs age" or something along those lines. If you can, please explain...Thanks for reading my post and if you can help... :unsure:

I'd put pups at 12-18 months. Maltese are small and may not be totally matured physically at 12 months.

Puppy food is only needed until the fast growth period is done. One of the biggest reason we see overweight young dogs is from eating puppy food. Personally, I haven't fed puppy food at all for the last few dogs, just an all stages food.
