Default Merrick

So, my puppy comes home next week, and I've been trying to do some research on what to feed him. The breeder feeds bil-jac to puppies and whelping females, but transitions to raw/kibble mix. I don't know if I'm ready for the commitment to feed raw just yet. I've been reading that Merrick has too high of a calcium level in the foods, at somewhere around 2.5%. I've tried to read why this is a bad thing and I can't really find the info I'm looking for. Is this so high that feeding Merrick would be a bad idea? I've been really pleased with the brand so far, it helped cure my other dog's Demodex. I'd appreciate any feedback I could get on this.
