Life Protection Formula® Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe For Large Breed Senior Dogs

Formulated for the health and well-being of senior dogs, BLUE Life Protection Formula is made with the finest natural ingredients and features:

  • Delicious, protein-rich, Deboned Chicken
  • Wholesome whole grains, garden veggies and fruit
  • NO chicken (or poultry) by-product meals
  • NO corn, wheat or soy
  • NO artificial flavours or preservatives

Because the nutritional requirements for senior dogs are different from other life stages, BLUE Life Protection for Senior Dogs features the ingredients to support their overall health and well-being and includes Glucosamine and chondroitin to promote healthy joints in large-breed dogs.

Available in 30-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.
