Rated 5 out of 5 by Pavlanche This food was a lifesaver for a picky eater!!!
My dog was recently diagnosed with pancreatitis. The vets didn't understand why this happened to him because he's a healthy and very athletic dog; they hypothesized that it may be a breed predisposition. Nonetheless, after 4 days at the vet on IV fluids and various IV medications for nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, his flare-up finally resolved. However, now we would need to change his entire diet to be low fat. After he refused to eat any of the prescription diet foods, I did some research online regarding canine pancreatitis and low fat foods. I came across a couple different ones but Annamaet Lean Grain-Free Dry Dog Food peaked my interest due to their quality ingredient list. I gave the information on this food to my vet, he researched it, and we decided it was worth a shot to get a sample to see if my dog would eat something. I tried a sample of another low fat dog food that some people recommended, but my dog wanted nothing to do with the food. To me and my vet's amazement, my dog immediately ate a handful of this food. To make sure it wasn't just because he was hungry, I tried to give him a handful of the other food. He didn't want anything to do with the food. My vet gave him another handful of the Annamaet and he once again ate everything in front of him. We are now almost one month following his pancreatitis diagnosis and he is still loving this food. This dog is insanely picky about everything he eats so his dad and I could not be more thankful for Annamaet Lean and the Annamaet Lean dog treats!! We do have to feed him more than the recommended amount because we need to put weight back on him since he is normally a very lean and athletic dog; have your vet calculate the amount of food for your dog. This food may be more expensive than some, but it's worth every penny when it comes to my dog's heath and well being. Thank you so much for providing such an awesome and healthy dog food!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sandieh this food is made by the company and not mass produced
I have 3 older dogs who have been on grain free food and raw since pups. This is a great switch as they age and become less active as it is grain free and low fat and moderate protien. They are in great weight from this food and had no issues switching them onto it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sadie32 Great for Boxer w/Pancreatitis
I have tried EVERYTHING for my 3 year old boxer. Nothing worked, she still had runny stools, vomiting, or just wouldn't eat the food. This has truly saved her life!! I was basically cooking all her meals, which was time consuming and very expensive. I am so happy that I found this food!!!! Thank you Annamaet for making a great, low-fat, grain-free dog food that has sufficient protein and with a taste dogs love :)

My Yorkie has been on Prescription Royal Canine Low Fat for years. I have been looking for a similar product with better ingredients, and one that is more appetizing. She loves it! and it is the right size kibble! and our other dogs love it, too. So far so good.:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Highker Great food for my dog.
My 16 yr old Yorkie had been having loose stool for over a year. I tried foods from Wellness, Halo, Natural Balance, Blue Buffalo and others, including low fat varieties, since my vet recommended that. I allowed about a month on each but the pasty stool continued. One day on Annamaet Lean Grain-Free Dry dog food and his stool was firm, as it was a couple years ago. He's been on it for a couple weeks now and it's been great. BTW, he's a giant Yorkie, 18 lbs and lean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Claudia14 An Excellent low fat low ash kibble
Our rescued dog who suffered from malnutrition and a host of other digestive problems including pancreatitis is doing exceptionally well on this kibble. I have tried a number of high quality premium low fat foods and this one suits her the best. I do supplement with fresh cooked skinless chicken breast and digestive enzymes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brandon Great for Pancreatitis
Our 12lb Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has been suffering with bouts of Pancreatitis for a while now. She was previously on Wellness Super5Mix and as soon as we changed her over to the Annamaet Lean she started getting better.
We wanted to find a low-fat, grain-free food for her as was suggested and Annamaet Lean was the lowest dry food we could find (grain-free or not!). It was a bit hard to find and expensive, so we tried going to Wellness Core, and after 1 day of slowly mixing in Wellness Core and Annamaet Lean, she was throwing up and having more Pancreatitis symptoms.
Needless to say, we got rid of Wellness food all-together and are now strictly using Annamaet Lean and she's doing great. She really likes the food as well, switching her to it completely was very easy, and the smaller size kibble is much easier for her to eat.
The only negative side is that her breath seems to have gotten worse on this food. I'll take bad breath over a vomiting, sick dog any day though.
