BLUE Basics® Turkey & Potato Recipe For Senior Dogs

BLUE Basics Turkey & Potato Recipe is a limited-ingredient diet formulated to minimize food sensitivities some dogs experience, while maximizing the nutritional value they receive. And because it’s BLUE, it’s made with only the finest natural ingredients:

  • Deboned Turkey - single animal protein source
  • Easily-digestible carbohydrates like peas and potatoes
  • Pea Crude Fiber: & Pumpkin to support gentle digestion
  • Omega 3 & 6 for skin & coat health
  • NO chicken (or poultry) by-product meals
  • NO corn, wheat, soy, dairy or eggs

Because the nutritional requirements for senior dogs are different from other life stages, BLUE Basics for Senior Dogs features the ingredients to support their overall health and well-being.

Available in 4 & 24-lb. bag.

Exclusive LifeSource Bits®

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 balance

And 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.
