BLUE LifeSource Bits are a precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists that support: Immune system health Life stage requirements Healthy oxidative balance And LifeSource Bits are cold-formed to help retain the potency of their ingredients.
