Formulated with ingredients chosen just for large breed puppies, this recipe provides the nutrition necessary to help your large breed puppy to grow into a strong, healthy adult.

How it Works:

Blue Buffalo Chicken & Brown Rice Large Breed Puppy Food contains real chicken, which provides puppies a tasty way to get the protein and essential amino acids they need every day - and this recipe contains extra protein to support your large breed puppy's growth. Whole grains, like brown rice, barley, and oats, supply complex carbohydrates. And real vegetables, including whole carrots, sweet potatoes, and peas, go into every bite of the chicken & brown rice recipe. Every bag of Blue Buffalo contains small morsels called LifeSource® Bits that benefit dogs by maintaining a healthy oxidative balance and a healthy immune system throughout a dog's stages of life. LifeSource® Bits are small kibbles that contain a precise blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists. To ensure that dogs and cats get the full benefit of these vital nutrients, LifeSource® Bits are "cold-formed" to help preserve their potency. Blue Buffalo is the only pet food that uses this manufacturing breakthrough.

Cautions:

None.

When to stop feeding puppy food

I have a 10 month old 36.5 lbs medium FB1 labradoddle and feed her twice a day about 3 to 3.5 cups per feeding of purina one smartblend large breed puppy food with real chicken. Should I change anything?
Asked by: Ed
According to most veterinarians, a dog is a puppy from birth till nine months of age. From then on, until 15 months of age, it is considered a young dog. I would suggest to speak to your vet if specific breeds range differently. :)
