Blue Buffalo: LifeSource Bits? - Friday, March 04, 2011 12:07 AM

My Dog and Cats love their new Blue Buffalo food.  (Blue Wilderness Duck Dog & Cat respectively)
No By-Product Meals, No artificial colors or preservatives, No Corn, Wheat, or Soy.

But there are these little bits that are very hard and supposedly are "cold formed nutrients."  They look like really small kibble bites.  My dog manages to eat an entire bowl and leave nothing left but a pile of LifeSource bits on the floor.  But he loves the kibble.  I worry about adding this to my ferrets' diet since the Life Source kibbles look hard.

Deboned Duck, Chicken Meal, Turkey Meal, Potato Starch, Fish Meal(natural source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids), Chicken Fat (naturally preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Peas, Whole Potatoes, Flaxseed (natural source of Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids), Natural Chicken Flavor, Alfalfa Meal, Whole Carrots, Whole Sweet Potatoes, Cranberries, Blueberries, Barley Grass, Dried Parsley, Dried Kelp, Taurine, Yucca Schidigera Extract, L-Carnitine, L-Lysine, Turmeric, Oil of Rosemary, Beta Carotene, Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B3), d-Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Folic Acid (Vitamin B9), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Calcium Ascorbate (source of Vitamin C), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Iron Amino Acid Chelate, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Choline Chloride, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate, Salt, Caramel, Potassium Chloride, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus faecium.

Where did you find it?  I've looked all over here in my little-hole-in-the-wall town but no one carries it.  Our oldest cat has a wheat allergy and the food she's on isn't great for ferrets so we're looking for something different and obviously wheat free.
When people ask what its like to live with a ferret I tell them "Its like a herd of toddlers riding a tornado through your house".

Petsmart.  o.O 

Actually, they're significantly increasing their "Premium" Selection such that mine has 2 aisles of cat food each side getting progressively more holistic.

I was kind of impressed that they'd carry it.

Lil,

Do you have a local Tractor and Supply Company in your area? Our  TSC carries this food.
Check out the web site they  have a store locator feature on the web site.

Wenmister, we do have one but I've never seen it there.  I'll ask the manager if he can get it in.  Thanks!
