    good product

    Have had my 7 mo old Newfie on this since we got her. Her coat is shiny and her intestinal issues have cleared up. I still supplement with pro/pre bionics, but her sensitive GI track is much better.

    Great food

    By on

    Switched to this after finding worms in my last brand. It was the best choice ever. This food is nutritionally better and requires less food per serving. Not only did this help putting weight on my great dane but his coat looks even better now. Oh yeah and it helped with his poops, firmed them up.

    We switched from purina to authority. Our dogs was constantly throwing up. And once we switched they stopped. They also don’t smell as bad or shed as bad. I highly recommend this food.

    Good Product

    By on

    We started using the large breed for puppy for our English Bull dog. We mix the dry with some pumpkin purée and she loves it. We were buying it from a well named pet store but got this big bag cheaper at Chewy.

    Pup loves this food

    By on

    My standard poodle puppy, Edith, loves this food, but reviews have me a little concerned about the food not having enough protein for puppies and no fruits or vegetables. So I’m not sure if I’ll get it again.
