There is some good info here on Calcium and Phosphorus and Protein levels.
Vets can be so so on food though. MOST high protein foods rely on a lot of meat meal and little meat and are unbalanced with Calcium to Phosphorus and that includes many TOTW formulas. The TOTW PUPPY formulas are pretty balanced though and in line with OTHER puppy formulas, including the Pro Plan
I left TOTW anyway after the last go round with Diamond Brands (they make MANY brands of pet food, including TOTW and have had a lot of recalls). By the same token nobody knows WHO makes the Blue Buffalo foods. Fromm has a good reputation. I think Wellness does. You can probably look up any name on this form and dogfoodadvisor.com to see reviews.
Were you feeding the puppy food or the adult food. This page shows the calcium, protein and phosphorus in the entire line. The pups should be lower on the calcium and phosphorus and as close to 1:1 as possible as pups can't process high calcium as well as adult dogs.

The calcium and phosporous ratios should be balanced. There are alot of threads on nutrition. You may want to read some and decide which brand is best to go with. If I fed kibble to a pup I'd probably feed wellness puppy or earthborn holistics(meadow feast has the right ratio of cal/phos)
Better to spend a bit more on nutrition while pup is in the important growing phase.
