Does this contain any wheat
Answer by ChewySep 22, 2020
This recipe is crafted using only nutrient-dense ingredients and never any wheat, corn, soy, chicken or poultry by-product meals, or artificial preservatives, colors or flavors.

Is the salmon in this puppy food wild caught or farm raised? If farm raised, is it raised without antibiotics or pesticides?
Answer by ChewySep 24, 2021
Whenever wild-caught salmon is available, it is sourced for this diet. When not available, farm-raised salmon from the Pacific Northwest is used. We cannot guarantee the farm-raised salmon used are free of antibiotics and hormones, but they do meet USDA, FDA and AAFCO guidelines for use in food.

All made in usa?
Answer by ChewyFeb 24, 2021
This recipe is manufactured in the United States from domestic and imported ingredients.

can a medium breed puppy eat this food?
Answer by ChewyDec 02, 2020

Very happy with food. Puppy was having skin issues.

My weimaraner was on Blue large breed puppy and was doing fine but had little bumps on her skin where I could see her fur raised because she has such short fur. I thought maybe from the chicken so I decided to try a Salmon based food. What a difference this food has made! Smooth sleek soft shiny coat. No more bumps. She is a healthy weight. Absolutely loves the food. My previous weimaraner was on American Journey for years and I believe it contributed to her long life even though she had cancer. Would definitely recommend this food. It's hard to find a good quality food that's not grain free with minimal chicken.

He tries to eat the bag

After some extensive research into what your pup destined for greatness (in size, anyway) needs to grow well, checking prices, and reading ingredient labels, we gave this one a try. Oh, dear goodness me. The pup, the cat, and the kitten were all trying to eat out of the food bin while I was pouring it from the bag (and mixing in the old food on top for transition). Pup then spent the rest of the afternoon playing with the empty bag in the backyard like it was his new favorite toy while trying to lick crumbs from inside. And he leaves a clean bowl behind, every time. The piles in the backyard are easy to clean up now, which is nice.

So far, so good

I opted to swap my new husky pup to this food shortly after we got him after reading a ridiculous amount of reviews, blogs, and websites about dog food brands. He was on a super high end food previously but I wanted to ensure it truly was the best for him. This food was repeatedly recommended for its affordability, high quality ingredients and the care in which its produced. I loved how this food was made specifically for my dog with his special breed needs in mind, that it meets all his dietary requirements and that Chewy thought of the most minute details all the way down to kibble size for his size. What pushed me over the edge was that this brand has never been recalled. Unfortunately my miniature pinscher also agrees this food is the best and stopped eating her food entirely in favor of this food. She’s a senior dog (16 years young) and had been on a senior food, but now I just let her eat this. At least she’s eating!

Idk how I feel about this food yet

The ingredients in this dog food sounds like good ingredients, however my 12 month old mix breed dog has a bit of a sensitive stomach with some things and this dog food seems to be giving her more gas than her previous food was. I'm still on the fence about if this dog food brand is going to work out for her or not, I'm going to try getting a different flavor besides fish in this brand or look for a grain free option and see if that's the problem. My dog does seem to like the food and I got Salmon flavor because she likes that flavor dog treats but I won't be getting this one for her again.

Perfect for our picky eater

Tried a couple of different foods and the puppy either wouldn't eat them or they made her sick. She loves this food and seems to be doing great on it so far!

My dogs looks great!

I have 3 dogs ages 1,12, and 16. This is only food all 3 have done great on. Each animal maintains healthy weight, bright eyes and the old dog will eat. Their coats look AMAZING! Great great product.

Puppy approved

My lab puppy loves it. Switched to this after his first puppy food was giving him gut issues and causing him to lose weight. This has minimal chicken, he gained his weight back and he's shiny!

high quality kibble

This is a high quality kibble at a reasonable price. Doggo loved it. With some punching 70$ for the same quality I would certainly recommend!
