Beware! Gave my dog terrible diarrhea!

We thought we would try to save some money as the price of dog food has also risen. Switched from Solid Gold brand to this. I read the list of ingredients, and everything seemed fine. We started by incorporating a small amount into her old food and unfortunately it didn't work out well. By the next day my dog had terrible diarrhea. It was so bad that we had to stop feeding it to her immediately. Fortunately, I called Chewy customer service, and they gave me a full refund. Just buy the expensive food because your dog is worth it!

Full of powder

My dogs seem to like it well enough but it's super powdery, to the point that I constantly have to completely scrub out their food bowl because it's coated in a layer of powder. I don't think I will buy this brand again.

Good for dogs, not so much me

My dogs LOVE this food. They can never get enough. However, my boy, Brody, is spoiled rotten and will only eat his food if it’s soupy with water….and let me tell you…it smells SO bad and it stays on his breath. It makes me want to vomit. My girl, Jas, likes it just hydrated & not soupy and she doesn’t get bad breath from it. I’ve noticed my dogs eat my grass and even tried eating dirt on this food, which I’ve read couple be nutrient deprivation. Tried a couple other foods and they either don’t eat it or have explosive poos. Other than that and out of stock every couple months when I need it, it’s pretty good on my bank account as well since I go through 2 bags every 3 weeks.

Like Natural Balance Fat Dogs

Seems to be working as well as Fat Dogs by NB and my dog likes it. Proteins, etc. are at or near NB. Costs less and I will buy again.

great for weight loss

The 10 year old lab was getting a bit fat and the vet said lose a few. It has worked and he is svelte again.

My pup loves it!

I bought this because it is a lower calorie food. Although my dog hasn’t really lost weight, it has increased the quality of her poops immensely!

Another good one is the American Journey Salmon. My dogs loves both.

Too much poop!

Defies laws of physics. * amt of food = *x3 amt poop. Indigestible!

Unreliable quality

I was using this with my 2 labs for several months, one has digestive issues, and they were both doing well. Then I started a new bag and they became very thirsty and had to go out all the time even during the night. They started to guard their water and tried to get in the shower to drink. I changed dog food and they were back to normal. I guess there was too much salt, but I cannot find a place to test it and Chewy could care less. They refunded my money but would not check into the issue. I have several more bags that are the same lot and I cannot in good conscious donate them to the shelter. They will go in the dump.

Doggie approved

My vet recommended getting a lower protein food for my dog because her kidney number was a little high. I normally buy the American Jounrney grain free. This one had lowest protein, and still had the glucosamine in it. Slowly mixing it with other food, and my dogs are loving it.
