    so far, so good

    rescued a beagle puppy. found out 30 minutes before I got off work I would be getting her, ran across the street to petsmart grabbed off the shelf and didn’t even look at nutrition facts. fast forward 15 minutes I’m in a parking lot holding a shaking puppy wrapped in a towel and the people get in their car and leave. got her home and out of the towel, offered her a handful and she didn’t want to stop eating. she is underweight so we will see what happens. We normally feed eukanuba to our other beagle. so we will see what happens for this sweet girl! She has vet appointment soon so we will see what he recommends and go from there!

    Grain free food at an affordable price

    By on

    Authority puppy food is definitely a hit at my house! The price is normally about $1 per pound, for the grain free. This price is actually pretty decent, and the food is made in the USA. I have a beagle/English bulldog mix as well as a poodle/chihuahua mix. Both of my dogs have been on this for about 2 months now, and the transition from their old brand was a breeze! They are happy, healthy, and very active! It's a great food, with a good price point!

    i got a new puppy at 15 weeks , weighed 17 lbs and I started her on Authority puppy. She adjusted immediately to it. She has grown like crazy and she is 6 months old now weighs 27 lbs. Her skin is healthy and shiney coat. Her coat came in thick and fast . I love knowing that she isnt ingesting gluten and artificial food colorings or preservatives.

    My stray puppy enjoys this food. Of course she still sniffs the floor before she’d eat her food but she was already in my yard rather than rescuing from a shelter so I’m unsure how she ate before. I’m not sure if the food just doesn’t smell good enough but I previously was feeding her my adult dogs food until I got puppy food and she ate that more. I’ll probabky swap to another flavor or brand to satisfy my pup
