Is Canagan suitable for puppies?

With the exception of Canagan Senior/Light which is specifically aimed at older dogs, all other varieties of Canagan can be fed to puppies as the nutrient levels are more than sufficient for their every need. The protein and fat levels in Canagan are much higher than those found in most carbohydrate packed adult dry dog foods, or even puppy foods!

The calcium and phosphorus levels and ratios of inclusion are also well suited to the development of puppies.
