    Seems great so far....

    By on

    We have a pup who seems to not only have a sensitive digestive tract but is also picky. We've had him on foods that were two to three times as expensive...but he just didn't seem to like them. We had to use toppers and treats for him to eat, and even then, he grazed. We're just beginning the process of transitioning him to this food, but so far, he loves it. In addition, we've had far fewer issues with digestive upset during the transition to this food as compared to others.

    I have a husky mix that I fed science diet to and thats all she would eat! I tried other brands but she wouldnt eat them. I bought a small bag of this and she cant keep her face out of the bowl! I recently saved a beagle from a shelter and she loves it too! Going to move her to small breed though.

    Love Authority

    By on

    My new pup was fed a very expensive grain free food that I didn’t want to keep buying, I have 3 large dogs, and she wasn’t handling new foods well until I found Authority. She loves this food and I love that I’m feeding her well.
