    Hello, I planned to feed our new Pom puppy a fresh food, Raised Right Puppy food. It’s has 60% protein., 28%fat, 8% carbs. However, while shopping at an organic natural pet food store, an employee said this wasn’t as good of a choice for toy breeds because the protein level is so high. Something about it being hard on their stomachs or harder to digest. He recommended a food with lower protein. When I look on the dog food for Poms page, Raused Right is not included. There is only 1 fresh food and I noticed all of them have closer to 30% protein. I cannot find anywhere online where it mentions this issue with toy breeds. In fact, on veterinary dietician site I found that if a dog gets too much protein they simply break it down and eliminate it through urine. So, now I’m not sure what to believe and if this is a good food for a toy breed or if I should instead go with one of the brands recommended here: https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-dog-foods/pomeranians/. I prefer fresh food, maybe raw to dry or wet. Any advice? Have others with you breeds fed them Raised Right?

    It’s good that you’re considering your Pom’s diet carefully. While Raised Right Puppy food has high protein content, many experts suggest that excess protein is typically eliminated through urine and shouldn’t harm your puppy. However, toy breeds can sometimes have more sensitive stomachs. If you prefer fresh food, you might start with Raised Right and monitor your pup’s digestion and overall health. Consulting with your vet for personalized advice is also recommended. Other owners of toy breeds may have positive experiences with Raised Right, but every dog is unique.
