With this product you won't have to worry about getting enough protein for your growing puppy. Our puppy, Ransom, has been eating Vital Complete Meals, since she was 9 weeks old. She is 7 months now and her vet is impressed at how lean and fit she is with great muscle mass. She not only loves it but it's also very good for her! I like the convenience of the round nuggets too! Easy to serve. One thing I would like to see someday is this product with different meat combinations.
