California Natural Grain-Free Kangaroo & Red Lentils Formula Adult Dry Dog Food
Excellent grain-free, alternative protein food
This is an excellent food for all dogs, but especially for allergenic dogs. Itâs grain free, has minimal ingredients, and kangaroo is a very unusual protein that most dogs (at least here in the States) will not have been exposed to before. Naturally, I can only assume that Charlie loves this food. After all, he doesnât speak English. =) He is, however, a picky-eater and California Naturals Grain Free Kangaroo is the first food that he eats completely dry, without gravies or a spoon of canned food mixed in. And, since heâs eating it dry, heâs chewing each bite (he has a habit of gulping his food â an issue which is only minimally helped with the slow down metal balls and special obstacle bowls). Prior to this, Charlie was on a so-called ultra premium, holistic, duck-based food. It was not grain free and he continued to have issues with allergies, hot spots, and recurring yeast infections of the skin and ears. Since switching to California Naturals Grain Free Kangaroo, Charlieâs yeast issues have cleared up and have not come back. In addition, his spring/summer hot spots are considerably better than they were this time last year (before switching). This is a great food--the proof will be in the improved health of your dog, just as I have seen in mine.

Would highly recommend
I have an 11 month old French Bulldog who has had severe skin allergies since she was about 5 months old. I tried everything! Before I spent a ton of money at the dermatologist on allergy testing I decided to try California Natural Kangaroo and Lentil formula. I did a lot of research on different limited ingredient dog food brands. I was willing to try anything since her skin was so bad. I mean bad...welts and scabs all over her body and she was constantly scratching herself raw. I stated the food and within 2 days saw a huge difference!! Her stool was finally solid and her skin was clearing up. She actually looked white again not red! It's been about a month now since I changed her food and she is doing very well on it...its like night and day! I would recommend this food to anyone who has a dog suffering from skin allergies. I know every dog is different, but it's worth a try and it will save you a lot of money in vet bills!

I have been using this product for 3 weeks now. I've tried everything and for the past year I have been making my own dog food for my pit/boxer mix. He is allergic to almost everything. This is the first dog food I have found that he can actually eat. I couldn't be more excited. Saves me time and money.

REMARKABLE!!!! FINALLY RELIEF
I own two English bulldogs. One 3 1/2 yrs old the other 2yrs old. My son was having red itchy paws and yeast infections in between his rope wrinkle. Also having the same brown discharge in his ears. My girl was having very bad ear discharge and her tear stains were dark and smelled. Both were being fed orijen red. And to my discredit, and hard headed-ness, I didn't want to believe it was there diet that was causing these allergies. I was trying to blame it on outdoor allergies (grass, or weed). But I finally gave in to listening to my wife, and tried a limited ingredient diet. She picked kangaroo from California natural and results have been so great, that we no longer have to use different shampoos,stridex pads every day (only for maintenance), and angel eyes for my girl. It really has been a blessing in disguise. I am so happy that both are not miserable with their licking and scratching.

Great food for picky pets!
We have two Chihuahuas that are extremely picky when it comes to their food. They are both 7 years old, and the male has (had) some skin allergies prior to switching to the California Natural Kangaroo. The kibble size is perfect for this small breed. They both love the taste, and can't wait for meal time now. The difference in their coats since using this product is simply amazing. I would highly recommend this food for anyone with picky pets, or any pets with skin allergies.

Allergy to grains and potatoes. Great solution for big problem.
Our Cocker is very allergic to grain based foods and molds. This kangaroo and red lentil formula is perfect for him and he likes it. No adverse reactions and it seems to be highly digestable. We had no problem introducing this food into his diet and now this is what he is fed exclusively.

It spoiled in the fridge
We recently switched our dog over from Wilderness Lamb to Kangaroo as it's supposed to be easier to digest. However, after grinding it, adding water and refrigerating it, after 1 week the food has become rancid. I had to toss it. I'm going to try mixing smaller batches, but Wilderness food didn't spoil. Uncertain why, as the dry food smells fine, actually it doesn't have an odor.

My dogs love California Natural and eat several different varieties. I have 3 dogs and NONE of them would eat the Kangaroo. I had to mix it with several other flavors just to get them to eat it so I don't waste money. Expensive does not always mean better.
