    Hi!

    I have 5 months old Yorkshire terrier. I was thinking about Nature's Variety Prairie Raw Instinct dry food, but I am afraid there is to much proteins in this food??? What do you think?
    What food do you think is the best for puppies? Could I mix Nature's Variety Prairie Raw Instinct with other dry food. Would this be o.k.?

    I use Natures Variety prairie for my Boston Terrier and Yorkie pups. I have also mixed Natures Variety with Innova Evo small bites. My babies coats are beautiful and their poop is firm.

    The problem with feeding Instinct, and most other high protein, grain free kibble to puppies is the high calcium levels. The calcium levels are too high for growing puppies and can lead to bone and joint disorders. The protein is not an issue.

    If your dog has reached at least 80% of it's expected adult size, you are typically safe to feed it, but, I never recommend feeding it to puppies.
