Most of the foods rated in the 6* category have high levels of protein. The caution attached to these foods is an acknowledgement that some veterinary research suggests that feeding high protein dry foods to puppies may contribute to the development or exacerbation of musculoskeletal disorders (as excess calcium and overall calories are believed to). Equally there is veterinary research that suggests that high protein is not a factor (and we note that it does not appear to be a problem for puppies fed high protein natural raw diets). Until such time as the issue is resolved one way or the other, we continue to acknowledge that the issue may exist. We do, of course, welcome the provision of research on this topic.
