Full Answer

Soft puppy food is easier for puppies to chew and digest, and it makes a great starter food for a newly weaned pup. Once the puppy has grown bigger, a semi-moist food or dry food can be used, since both are generally cheaper and keep longer than wet varieties while still providing the nutrition puppies need. As a pit bull puppy grows into an adult dog, nutritional needs will increase as pit bulls are a large breed with unique nutritional requirements.
