    3 doggies luv 2 chew

    By on

    I have 3 dogs: small, medium and large. I finally found a dry dog food that all can eat and chew. It is difficult and expensive to buy dry dog food for each dog's needs. This fits the bill. It is reasonably priced. The "kids" love it. It satisfies their nutritional diets.

    I like this healthy dog food that is inexpensive and is good for both my senior dog and younger dog. Their coats are healthier looking and they haven't had as much gastric issues as normal.

    Switched from science diet

    By on

    My 2 little guys took to this food right away. I had never even heard of this brand but after a little digging on the chewy website I decided to give authority a shot and I'm glad I did. I didn't even realize how bad and grainy the ingredients were in science diet which is a high rated and well known food compared to this wonderful brand. Found my new go to dog food!

    Ants in the dog food

    By on

    There were ants in one of the bags of dry Authority dog food delivered to my house. I had to throw the bag away & it took me several hours to clean up. I also had to buy ant traps to stop the infestation.

    My dog won’t even touch this food, even with salmon oil on it. She will go an entire day without eating if I don’t give her anything else, wouldn’t recommend.

    So convenient!

    By on

    I really like using Chewy so far. The food is the same exact brand and type that I get in store but now it's delivered to my house :) If I frequented the pet store more, I probably wouldn't use Chewy, but I don't. I really only go there for this specific food. Love the convenience and the shipping arrived within 2 days, I'm a fan!
