I thought Call of the Wild was low protein! I am so upset! I thought I was giving her top of the line for low protein specifically to make sure she has slow bone growth. Now she is growing too fast!!

Now what do I feed her??

My girl is on a high protein, low calcium. Protein helps muscle growth.. Calcium is what hurts the bones. Fromm four star adult food is what I feed. No puppy food as I do not like the high calcium. I would NEVER give a pup calcium supplements due to the joint damage it can cause. Puppy's need protein. Just curious, how big is she? How much does she weigh?
