Easily-digestible carbohydrates like peas and potatoes
Pea Fibre: & Pumpkin to support gentle digestion
Omega 3 & 6 for skin & coat health
NO chicken (or poultry) by-product meals

Because puppyhood is such an important stage in any dog’s life, BLUE Basics for Puppies features ingredients that support healthy growth and development.
BLUE LifeSource Bits are a precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists that support:
Immune system health
Life stage requirements
Healthy oxidative balanceAnd LifeSource Bits are "cold-formed" to help retain the potency of their ingredients. This means that we minimize the amount of heat that LifeSource Bits are exposed to during the manufacturing process. It’s the same concept as when you cook vegetables at high heat—the longer you do, the more heat-sensitive nutrients are lost.
Brain & Eye Development
DHA and ARA, important fatty acids found in mother’s milk, along with Choline, support healthy development of cognitive learning and retinal function.
Healthy Muscle Growth
High-quality protein from Deboned Turkey and Turkey Meal helps develop strong muscles.
Strong Bones & Teeth
An optimal blend of Calcium, Phosphorus and essential vitamins helps promote healthy bone growth.
Special “small-bite” kibble is the perfect size for smaller jaws and is shaped to help promote tartar removal.
Healthy Skin & Coat
An optimal balance of Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids helps develop a shiny coat and healthy skin.
Healthy Immune System
Essential vitamins, chelated minerals and important antioxidants help support the immune system.
