Questions & Answers

The description of this dog food says "There’s no wheat, corn, soy, chicken or poultry by-product meals" but in the ingredient list it clearly states "chicken meal" as the 6th ingredient. Which is correct?
Answer by ChewyJun 30, 2021
This recipe does not contain any Poultry by-products which are composed of nutrient-dense organ meats. They are rich in protein and amino acids to help strengthen and maintain your pet’s muscles. Also, because of their nutrient-rich composition, they are typically the first thing an animal would eat in the wild. Poultry by-products do not include animal parts such as feathers, teeth or beaks. This recipe does include Chicken meal which is made up of chicken that has been ground and cooked, reducing the fat content to create a protein-rich ingredient. It’s high in protein and amino acids to help strengthen and maintain your pet’s muscles. It’s also a high-quality source of glucosamine for joint health. Chicken meal does not include feathers, heads, feet or entrails.

When it says for Senior Dogs, what age is that?
Answer by ChewySep 23, 2021
Because individual dog breeds age at a different pace than others, the age a dog is considered a senior will vary with the size and breed. In general, large dog breeds age more quickly than small dog breeds. Small breeds are considered senior dogs around 10-12 years old. Medium size breeds are considered senior dogs around 8-9 years old. Large and giant breeds are considered senior dogs around 6-7 years old. Always consult with your veterinarian for the best results with your individual pet.

What is the fat content?
Answer by ChewyMar 22, 2022
This recipe contains a minimum of 11% fat.

What is the Ash% of this food?
Answer by ChewyApr 12, 2021
This recipe has an approximate Ash content of 7-9% on an As-Fed basis.

My dog loves this

I've been having a problem with my dog eating everyday. I started giving her fish oil. She loves that. She's 12 yrs old and starting to have older age dog problems. So I started searching for a senior dog food that could help her. I liked all of the reviews for this dog food. I decided to buy it. We just got it yesterday. She ate 2 cups right away. I waited until just now and put another 2 cups in her bowl. She ate more. So far so stomach issues. I am hoping this will help with her licking and biting issues. So far I am very pleased. Thank you.

Life-Changing for our Senior Girl

Our senior Labrador battled for several years with skin allergies, ear infections & stomach upsets. Because she had been on the same food for years before the problems started, our vet (like us) assumed it was environmental. Chewy was out of her food when it was time for our auto ship, so I substituted this. By the end of the first bag I was noticing a difference in her. By the end of the second bag I was astounded by what we were seeing. No more stomach issues, no more itching & no more ear infections! She’s acting 5 years younger.

LOVE this!

Our 12 year old red Doberman has always had issues with his skin. We found that a low-glycemic index food was helpful along with some supplements we give to him. This food has been amazing for his skin and costs less than the brand we were feeding. His stools are firm (and I think size-appropriate for the size dog) and doesn't have any issues with gas. He is a healthy old man and really enjoys the taste. He especially likes it with American Journey salmon oil as a topper.

Short term

First try at senior food for my 3 GSD, this made them fat!!!!! Exception is the super intense, high energy, DDR/ Czech. Would Not Recommend.

My dog absolutely loves it

My dog who doesn’t really think food is a priority rushes to eat this food with a gusto. Not a piece is left behind. She is also more energetic and seems happier.

Good senior dog food

I was looking for a senior formula with salmon to help my dog with some dry skin and weight gain. She's gotten back to a healthy weight and skin is less irritated. Wish it came in a bigger kibble but not many foods do, so I get it. I like it for what it does provide and she likes it. Will keep using!

I'll be lucky if my dog lives!

I thought maybe switching to a salmon based dog food would be good for my dogs since they are 12. They stopped eating and my little girl has developed liver issues and is so weak I have to hold her up when she stands! I only brought this about two weeks ago. She was an energetic healthy happy strong dog. Now she may die. The only thing different was this food. We switched back to our old brand and my boy gulped it down. She even ate a small amount. I do NOT recommend anyone feed this to their dog.

The best low-chicken senior with-grain food I can find!

My 12 year old doberman has a chicken allergy and a sensitive stomach, so we always try to find food with as few chicken ingredients as possible. This is the ONLY dog food I could find with basically no chicken, formulated for seniors, and includes grains. He's been on this food for a couple years now, and I see a difference with the extra chondroitin and MSM!

No go in this house.

My dog has had salmon based food before, but this one she won't even touch. She avoids her food all together if I just try to even put a little bit in to start the transition. Waste of money for us. My other 2 have no interest in it either. So 0 for 3.

Gamechanger!

Jeremy wasn't eating his food when we got him from the spca. I put a cube broken up on top of his dry food and he was scrambling to get to the bowl. He loves it!
