MooLaah is an unknown quantity at this point
too much protein...GOOD or BAD???

Hey everyone can anyone clarify to me if too much much protein is good or bad for my apbt she is around one years old.

i was reading that the brand "blue wilderness" has 42.0% crude protein. is that good or bad.

I've read that too much protein can cause liver problems.

has anyone went through this. anyone please give more knowledge on this subject please and thankyou.

right now i am feeding eukanuba but switching to "premium edge"
(yes i am mixing it together)

eukanuba was drying out my girls coat. she use to have that glossy/shiny coat.

has anyone heard of "premium edge".

I use blue buffalo wilderness for Nismo.
and it is absolutely wonderful.
I believe we really looked into it first and even spoke to our vet about it.
because at first it can give your dog diarrhea I believe.
correct me if I'm wrong.
but it works great for us and the protein levels have been a good thing.

You know Trevor pointed that out and to be honest I'm not sure if that's good or bad.
I've never been much of an expert on food?
also they have a new bag I think its lamb?

grains are a known allergen in most dogs also it is not natural for dogs to eat grains. in dog food grains are considered cheap filler. its a great thing to see them remove the grains from the food. i seen they have a few new flavors which is good for dogs with certain protein allergies.
when Peanut was young he used to eat blue wilderness. i still get emails from them

well then I am so glad,
because of all of Nismo's digestive problems I'm sure it isn't hurting him lol.
and yeah I thought so too.
There used to be only one bag of wilderness around here and now I'm seeing a couple.

It has been years since I have read the back label of premium edge but from what I remember it was a good quality kibble for a lower cost. I will see if I could find it online and be a little more educated in my response
I know higher protein is an issues with growing puppies and I have heard that too high of protein can cause liver issues. I will have to check out the link Peanutsmommy gave I wanted to read more on it.

Some may not agree with me but I think it is still a good quality kibble. It is not grain free but if your dog does ok on it I think it is fine. This is the Chicken and Rice formula.

If dogs have liver issues and have a high protien diet that will cause some major issues BUT protien in a normal healthy dog it wouldn't hurt them that is what a vet had said.
