|Large breed puppy chow is at best marketing hype and at the worst still rich enough to promote excessive rates of growth. Some people buy marketing hype, and some don't.
Please pull up the analysis from a LBP food and an ALS food, at tell me how it is too "rich"? You mean too much protein? CALCIUM causes excessive bone growth, NOT protein (please remember here, dogs are CARNIVORES. Protein isn't the enemy here. If it was, wolves and other wild canids would have died off from the top of the food chain long ago). And, as has been stated endlessly, THAT is the difference in LBP foods and most ALS foods- the calcium/phosphorous are kept at numbers to promote steady, even growth.
Not the 2% < that goes into the ALS, which is WAY too high for a growing large breed (any breed, honestly).
