My vet told me that he didn't want my pup getting to much proten because she would grow to fast and that wouldn't be good for her bones. Can a pup grow to fast and cause damage to their well being? Wish at this moment I'd gotten a grown dog,, naw,, I love her, but this food thing is causing me stress

It is NOT the high protein that you need to be concerned about....it is the calcium and phosphorous content....especially for large breed puppies.

There is a thread here about it.....I'll go find it for you.
