    I'd feed it. The major reason people feed LB Puppy foods is because of the calcium, but this food has calcium levels around what some other LB Puppy foods have. I think the general recommendation is less than 1.5%, and this food is below that.

    It's also got enough protein for a growing Lab...I'd have no problems feeding it.
