**PLEASE NOTE, ALL BLUE BUFFALO FOODS HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS POST DUE TO JET BECOMING SEVERELY ILL AFTER EATING A TAINTED BAG OF BLUE BUFFALO WILDERNESS!**
If you have ever had to search through the thousands of dog kibble varieties out there for a specialized food that meets your dog’s needs, then you will understand the frustration involved. It doesn’t matter what specific item you are looking for, the search is endless and frustrating – I know, I’ve been there with this handsome man…
Jet can’t eat corn or wheat. He requires low phosphorus kibble due to a prevalence for bladder stones. He refuses kibble that contains only chicken as a protein. He is a senior dog and thus inactive, so he requires lower calorie counts. He has severe arthritis as well as heart disease, so he benefits from omega-3 and Omega-6 as well as glucosamine-chondroitin. Can you understand my struggle yet?
Yes, raw feeders and home cooked feeders, I hear your cries. I simply don’t have the finances or space to accommodate raw or home cooked feeding. So, what is a senior dog mom to do? Well, I spent two days gathering all of my research on low phosphorus dog kibble, grain free dog kibble, low phosphorus grain free dog kibble, chicken free dog kibble, single source protein dog kibble, senior dog kibble, dog kibble recommended for heart disease…I’m talking EVERYTHING, and I put it all together in a spreadsheet so that you don’t have to do the research.
You can find the fruits of my research by viewing my low phosphorus dog kibble spreadsheet on Google Drive.
You can also take a look at the spreadsheet below.
Included in this spreadsheet you will find company brand names, kibble names, largest kibble bag sizes available, kibble calories, kibble glucosamine content, kibble chondroitin content, kibble phosphorus levels, kibble protein types, grain containing kibble or grain free kibble, poultry free kibble, where to buy the kibble, the cost of the kibble and the kibble rating from the Dog Food Advisor website.
In case you are wondering, for the time being, Jet is currently eating Wellness Complete Health Large Breed Adult Deboned Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe.
