BLUE™ Life Protection Formula Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe for large breed puppies is formulated with ingredients chosen specifically to help them grow up strong and healthy. Puppies love our tasty chicken, and it provides them with essential amino acids they need every day. Hearty whole grains like brown rice, barley and oats supply the complex carbohydrates that your puppy needs for energy. Whole carrots, sweet potatoes and peas are three of the nutrient-rich vegetables that your puppy will get in every bite of BLUE.
LifeSource® Bits contain a precise blend of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists. Importantly, BLUE LifeSource® Bits are "cold-formed" separately from the rest of our kibble to help preserve the potency of the ingredients.

Rated by 5 out of 5 Kailua GSPs My dogs do GREAT on Blue!
I switched my 3 GSPs to Blue Buffalo Lg Breed two years ago (previously on Science Diet Lg Breed). My oldest dog, who was 13 at the time, really perked up--less creaky, more frisky, fewer digestive problems. My younger dogs have done well, too. Healthy, gorgeous coat and muscle tone. Pricey, but worth it.

Why did you choose this?
I have pbtp that are not yet weaned should I start them on soft foods or is dry food okay? When they are weaned.
Best Answer: I had to semi wean one of my puppies and what I did was mix dry kibble with water for the first few weeks and just kept adding less water as I went on! Seemed to work ok for me!
