Getting back to basics is good advice for pet parents whose dogs show signs of being sensitive to some of the ingredients used in traditional pet foods. For these dogs, a careful selection of high-quality, natural ingredients is most important, and that's the way our animal nutritionists have formulated Blue Basics.
Blue Basics is a healthy and holistic limited-ingredient diet formulated to minimize food sensitivities while maximizing the nutritional value that your dog will receive. Turkey, a high-quality protein not commonly used in dog food, is the first ingredient, followed by three easily-digestible and mild carbohydrate sources…potatoes, rice & oatmeal. We've increased the nutritional value of Blue Basics by adding a precise blend of veggies, fruit and micro-nutrients, which also helps in the digestive process. And, like every one of our Blue dog foods, Blue Basics has no chicken or poultry by-product meals and no artificial ingredients of any kind.
For large breed dogs with food sensitivities, the ingredients they don't eat are just as important as the ones they do. That's why Blue Basics does not contain any corn, wheat, dairy, soy or eggs while still providing a simply delicious and nutritious meal that your food-sensitive dog will thrive on.
The nutritional benefits of Blue Basics are further enhanced by the addition of our exclusive LifeSource Bits. A precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists, LifeSource Bits include ingredients that have been shown to help strengthen your dog's immune system while supporting his life stage requirements.
