    I want to point out that in the list you posted before, you said the Fromm Four Star Nutritionals grain-free is 5 star food. I read the review today, it said Fromm Four Star Nutritionals just earns 4 star (except one). Maybe you made a mistake in the list.
    And the Wellness Core: Puppy has over 3.5g/1000 kcal calcium based on my calculation:
    Calcium is 1.50%, 3,792 kcal per kilogram,
    so I got 3.95g/1000 kcal.
    You may want to double check them…

    thanks, pattyvaughn!
    I will try several food and find a perfect ratio!

    By the way, Hound dog mom said “For a large breed puppy you’d want to feed a food with 3.5 g. calcium per 1,000 kcal. or less”. What does “less” mean? Can someone tell me a range?

    Thank you all!

    Thanks, hound dog mom!!! you are a life safer!-dog saver?;)
    I know tripe is good food, but here is what I concern: if I mix dry food and trpe in meals, like 50% and 50%, my dog can definetely have enough calorie, but he may need more Vitamins and Minerals?(the 50% from tripe has more protein, but less other content) Like you said, “Green tripe is high in protein and naturally has a balanced calcium to phosphorus ratio but contains very low levels of each (only about 0.3% calcium on a dry matter basis if I recall correctly). ” Will my dog get less calcium and develop some health issue?
    thanks!
