Give your small breed dog the great nutrition you expect from Blue, with special attention to his unique needs. This formula contains more protein than the regular adult Chicken & Brown Rice formula, to account for the high-energy needs of small breeds. It contains quality brown rice, barley, and oat grains as complex carbohydrate energy sources. It features real deboned chicken as the first ingredient, and chicken meal as the second ingredient, to supply highly digestible protein and amino acids. It delivers a host of vitamins and chelated minerals, plus vegetables and fruits like peas, sweet potatoes, apples, blackberries, blueberries, parsley and more. Omega-3 from fish oil supports healthy skin and coat, while glucosamine supports joint and hip health.
