    Food our old boys can eat

    By Boooo on Feb 8, 2021

    My aging aussies had had difficulty digesting dry food, or they refuse to eat it at all. The size and apparently the flavor is pleasing to them which thrills me. They are going on 14 and are still as active as they were as puppies.

    Best switch ever

    By JessW on Dec 27, 2020

    I had been feeding my dogs this for years. When I moved away it wasn’t available so we switched to a brand we could buy locally. We were feeding them another expensive brand but they didn’t like it, they got crazy tarter, and shed badly. We switched back to Authority and I can already tell he difference. This is a great quality food. I compared the label to other expensive popular brands and it definitely beats them. Plus my dogs love it!!! I love that it has whole veggie bits you can see. I will never switch again now that Chewy has it!

    Best switch I have made

    By BsMom11 on Jun 18, 2020

    When I rescued B she would only eat Beneful (I know it is terrible quality). She went through an 8 month skin irritation about 2yrs later. Tried all expensive grain free, elimination diet, went back to Beneful and it quickly went away. She is 8 now & part lab, so I worry about her joints. A man at the pet store recommended Authority. I was nervous about switching, it went great. She loves it. She doesn’t shed as much, gets spurts of puppy energy, and still no skin problems. She seems happier, more playful, and has more energy. I got my 4yr old dog back in her 8yr old body. #adoptdontshop

    My search for the RIGHT dog food is over!!!

    By Kitty on May 7, 2020

    My dog has loved this dog food very much! He gets super excited for meal times ever sense I started giving him this brand. I have jumped around between blue buffalo, American journey and Hills Science. But this one has been the only one that my dog loves and actually gets excited for meal time. The plus side with the brand is the added hip and joint care. My dog being 11 it’s definitely helps with the other supplements I give him. I’m glad my search for the right dog food is over.

    They love it

    By OLIVIA on Feb 10, 2020

    I have a Husky and a Caucasian Shepherd they love the dry and the moist! No transition issues from their prior food, and poop looks good. I will be switching to this food from now on, just wish they had more flavors.

    Everyone Loves It!

    By Lisa on Aug 18, 2019

    I've recently changed over to the Authority Mature formula. It's one of the few kibble made for seniors that has in my opinion the appropriate protein and fat % and a low sodium content. It is extremely palatable since everyone I'm feeding it to can't eat it fast enough. Poops are firm. The jury is still out on how their coats will do...I'm hoping they shed less on this than their previous kibble. The ingredients list is good and the price is excellent. I am going to try other formulas for some of my dogs who are not seniors.
