    Smallest kibble I've ever seen

    By on

    I purchased a bag of this for my giant breed, as it was one of 9 items to show up when I searched "dry dog food"---->senior---->giant breed. I decided to try it based on previous reviews. It arrived tonight & I was alarmed at the size of the kibble. It is literally the smallest kibble I've ever seen. I immediately tossed the entire bag in a large garbage can, as kibble this size is not safe for nothing other than MAYBE a toy breed. DO NOT buy if you are looking for kibble for a medium, large, or giant breed.

    I really like this dog food so far, it is from Bill Jac and that is the reason why we decided to use. It is more reasonable on price and right we are tight on money. That was the reason why we went to it instead of Blue, but should be a good quality. As you know we love our dogs and are like family so we did research and was good.

    RIP off per Instructions

    By on

    So I switch to this food because my dog is getting old and slow. I didn't look at the "feeding instructions" until I opened it and it calls for me to feed my Cane Corso a minimum of 5 Cups per day! The Canidae I switched from only had her at 2.25 cups per day for a senior. Now I am getting a smaller bag and having to feed her twice as much?!?
