Product Summary:

BLUE™ Life Protection Formula Chicken & Brown Recipe Dry Dog Food

Dogs love 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 dog needs for energy. Whole carrots, sweet potatoes, and peas are three of the nutrient-rich vegetables in every bite of BLUE™.

BLUE™ LifeSource® Bits contains 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.

Tamara W on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Please consult with your veterinarian on how much to feed your dog.
I have a female pug who is spayed and is over weight (as pugs usually are). My vet wants her to lose 10 lbs !! We have been looking for a good healthy dog food for her. She is 3 yrs old . Any recommendations? Would this Blue Buffalo adult work best for her?
Debbie M on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You might want to try Item #495900. It's the weight control Life Protect from Blue Buffalo.
