Sorry, but what I bolded is not exactly correct. Meat meals are actually more concentrated sources of meat protein than fresh meat (which is mostly water). This is the AAFCO definition of meat meal:Adult large breed food. You can skip the puppy food, they tend to promote a more rapid growth, which is not good for larger dogs. If you can find a large breed puppy food, that's okay too.
Actual meat should be the first ingredient listed, not meal (chicken meal or other meat meals hide a lot of unfortunate dirty secrets of the pet food industry).
For more specifics, search "Dobermantalk puppy food" in your browser or "puppy food" in the search tool.
Blue Buffalo doesn't have the best track record. They just settled a lawsuit for 32 million dollars for using by product meats while advertising there were no meat byproducts in their foods.Blue Buffalo!
Hope she does well, and she probably will. Raw is awesome for most any dog!Here in the UK I've been using BURNS original puppy food. Khaleesi used to go mad for it and I could even use the kibble as treats. She got diarrhoea after some antibiotics and has since turned her nose up at dry food. We had to give her plain rice and boiled chicken or white fish to essentially "clog her back up" again and it worked a charm
We are now going to a raw food supplier today to have a look at some of their meats and pre-made packs for newbies which come in the 8:1:1 ratio for meat:bone: organs. Will update you on how she gets on with her raw food! She is 5 months old and has suffered from staph infections so hoping the prey raw food diet will be more beneficial for her overall health.
