Product Summary:

Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Healthy Weight Chicken and Brown Rice Adult Dry Dog Food

BLUE™ Healthy Weight Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe is formulated with ingredients chosen specifically for overweight dogs. 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 that your dog 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.

My dogs like it
My dogs seem to enjoy it. I have 5 miniature dachshunds and one has a sensitive stomach. This one does not work for her, but the other four just love it.

Highly Recommend
This is the first weight control food our labs have readily accepted. We tried others that they didn't like (one would refuse to eat for days @ a time) or that caused digestive issues. Neither had any stomach problems transitioning to Blue. Both also are allergy prone & have had no issues with this food after @ 9 months. I like the quality ingredients; my dogs love the taste; the vet confirms they are on the right track losing weight--everyone wins with this food.

Does this come in small bites?
Debbie M on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product comes with kibble that is 11 to 13 mm in size and is triangle shaped. If that is too large I have linked you to another item that we carry , it is the same weight control but for small breeds if you have a small breed dog. The small breed varriety comes in a kibble size of 9-11 mm and is also triangle shaped.
