    Molded food

    By on

    My dogs really loved this food, and did well on it until I found molded chunks in the bottom of the bag. It's a great food, but I won't be getting it until quality control is better. Shout out to chewy for handling this issue so well.

    perfect for picky dogs!

    By on

    I have 3 dogs and it’s difficult to find something my picky GSD will eat. She’s from a working line and has trouble keeping weight on if she doesn’t care for the brand of food I get. My other 2 will eat anything, but they especially like this food! It’s just high enough in protein and fat to keep my GSD’s weight up she LOVES it!! The kibbles are very small which works out if your dog doesn’t care for larger sized kibble. Lastly it’s EXTREMELY cost efficient and is made with good quality ingredients... Perfect! Thank you!!!!

    So far, so good

    By on

    I recently switched to Beaverdam puppy 26/18 after a brand I used for many years changed formulas and that caused issues with my dogs. My dogs like this food and have solid stools with no tummy upset. Time will tell how well it works but for now I am quite pleased.

    The complete analysis of this food...

    By on

    A standard 8oz measuring cup holds about 100g of this food. It is 1.8% calcium and 1.12% phosphorus. I think, if my calculations are correct, that means that that calcium content is 4.1g per 100kcals. The calcium to phosphorus ratio is 1.6 to 1. All that being said, I think it is OK for most puppies. I breed cane corso dogs for farm work and for show. I feel confident in feeding this to my puppies. According to the Dog Food Advisor, it is just a little bit too much calcium, but I don't think it is too bad. The price of the food is $1.08/lbs with the auto order function on Chewy.com or $1.13/lbs without. So, pretty decent price. Iams 30lbs bags are generally $1.01/lbs.

Purina ProPlan is around $1.20/lbs. So, I don't think the price is bad. I facebooked messaged them twice with various questions. I wanted to know how fresh the food was. The owner responded with, "We produce in batches of a standard tractor trailer size and rotate very frequently. Each brand is reproduced approximately every 4-8 weeks." My next question was if they outsourced work to a company that helps adults with disabilities gain new workskills to then gain community employment. Since I work in that field and know that we used to get similar white bags of animal feeds and we would have to stick on labels, I was thinking that they might do the same thing. The owner responded with, "I'm so happy to tell you are labeling is provided by a company that employs persons with disabilities! We love that opportunity." Bonus points for making is person first ("persons with disabilities" instead of "disabled people"). Like I said, I work in the field and it brings so much joy and happiness to people when they are given this kind of opportunity to hone their skills and then one day go out and use it in real world situations (labeling dog food bags today can turn into a job labeling different products at stores or specialty items). Second time I messaged them, I asked about the calcium because too much calcium given to puppies can increase the risk of hip dysplasia, but the owner never answered me back. So, I had to do my own calculations, which could be incorrect. Beaverdam Pet Food claims to always have your pet's allergies in mind and that is why they use different grains and do not use byproducts or dyes. The one thing that they really sell to you in "Sel-Plex". Sel-Plex is apparently an "exclusive" form of organic selenium. WebMD says this about selenium, "Selenium is a mineral found in the soil. Selenium naturally appears in water and some foods. While people only need a very small amount, selenium plays a key role in the metabolism." I had no idea what it was, so I figured that other people didn't either. Beaverdam Pet food says that including this in the diet of dogs helps reduce the onset of alzheimer's and reduces some cancers. I don't believe everything they tell you. I do not see any scientific sources for their claims of Sel-Plex listed on any of their pamphlets or website, so yeah. I guess, if you wanted to, just look it up on Alltech's website (which makes me think it is not "exclusive". The food is made in Delaware and they claim that it is made with "American grown Pork and Chicken". So, go USA! They use natural preservatives, so that's good. No corn, no wheat, no gluten, so it your dog has reactions, this is pretty good. They have four dietary aids (probiotics, prebiotics, yucca and chicory). They are also family owned and operated, so a real mom and pop shop. They also boast that they have never had a recall. My dogs say that they love it. Like I said, I breed cane corso dogs, then I have an elderly rottweiler mix and a shepherd/bloodhound mix. They all eat it happily. The food isn't too big, so dogs of ALL sizes can happily eat it. I can also shove it in 95% of their treat toys and it doesn't clog anything. This is my COMPLETE review on this food. … more

    My dogs love this!

    By on

    I was looking for a better rated dog food (4 star or above) that wouldn't break the bank as I am feeding a LARGE Italian Mastiff and 3 smaller dogs. The Beaverdam dog food rated 4 stars, my current dog food was rated at 3. This was about the same price so I decided to try it. The dog food pieces are small, a plus for the smaller dogs. I mixed it with their old dog food but they seem to like it so when the old dog food is gone will just feed it. So far so good...it's only been a couple weeks but no problems, no stomach upset or other problems, and their coats are shiny! I think this one is a keeper! It's made in the USA by a family owned business, I like that a lot.

    New Food for the Dogs

    Changed from Victor to Beaverdam due to Victor changing their ingredients. So far so good, the dogs are loving the food and the transition hasn’t caused their systems any problems.

    GREAT FOOD

    By on

    Finally a dog food that can keep up with my pup! My American Stafforshire Terrier has a TON of energy and is a very active dog. I have had a hard time finding a food that can keep up with him and keep the weight on him. All other foods I've tried hes burned straight through. This food is great, it also seems to balance his mood which is great! Highly recommend for active dogs with high metabolisms.

    Picky Pyranese

    By on

    I personally am very happy with the product. I have 2 Great Pyranese who work as Livestock Guardians for my sheep and goats. The younger of the 2 is doing very well on it. The older of the two is my problem child as he quickly gets bored with tastes and ceases to eat. His preference is the sweet mix with oats we feed the livestock.

    Bowls are empty

    By on

    Was told about Beaverdam 26/18 and read the ingredients. I was very impressed that there were no legumes in it. My 3 Border Collies, Australian Shepherd and my mixed stray were picky eaters with semi solid stools. With Beaverdam their bowls are all empty twice a day... I slowly blended the Beaverdam with their old food and after two days they no longer have loose stools... Thank you so much for producing this great product!!!

    Switched from a high priced name brand to this food after my breeder recommended it because the coats on her dogs looked beautiful. Mine LOVED it and are looking great as well!
