BLUE Basics Dog Food is a delicious, limited-ingredient diet made from fewer ingredients selected with care, that may prove helpful to dogs with food sensitivities. All Basics recipes start with real meat from a single animal protein source not often used in dog food, plus they include pumpkin and easily digested carbohydrates. BLUE Basics small breed formulas feature the right blend of protein and carbohydrates to meet small breeds’ higher energy needs, plus “small-bite” kibble to help smaller dogs with chewing and tartar removal.
