I haven't tried bixbi before. I normally go with farmina or open farm for my senior dog but I love rotating to new things every bag. (Chewy is where I always go to try small bags of new brands and thankfully he isn't usually a picky dude.) I let my dogs taste test everything out of every chewy box right away. (spoiled.. I know.) Both of my dogs seem to like it so that's great! The only "concerns" I have is that I think there are better options out there for the price range. I'm not excited about "vegetable flavor" which I didn't catch the first time I looked at the ingredients list. It's before the salt bar. (so are yellow peas, red lentils, and coconut flour).. maybe bixbi is trying to market themselves as a high quality kibble but don't be fooled like I was. ALWAYS check the ingredients carefully and know what you are looking for.
This has resolved allthe stomach issues my dog was having. My German Shepherd had digestive issues as a puppy with her previous premium food (Diamond), we eventually figured out she was allergic to lamb (the vet said it was pretty common). They suggested for these dogs to buy duck, salmon, or rabbit. It was hard finding food without lamb product or meal. I got this to replace it. She immediately took to it and loves it. So does her GS/husky sister. I just wish it wasn't so expensive, she's big so i go through bags quickly. I understand why it's pricey, the process is more involved. So I'm not arguing that, but it has pushed me to look at other options. Science Diet (which was surprisingly less expensive than this one) seemed like a good replacement but it will be a bit before I know for sure. This is a really great dog food and my dogs do well with it, it just adds up with bigger dogs.
I normally never write a bad review about the bad smell of dog food, because it all smells bad to me lol. However, I opened the bag and it smells like barf. I don't know if it's the normal smell of this kibble or not, but I have truly never had dog food smell like this before. Plus my dogs refused to eat it even with the freeze dried toppers they love. That's what really made me think it might be rancid.
I have multiple senior dogs all with different dietary need and this food fit the bill for all of them ranging from digestive to allergies. Highly recommend.
Our breeder uses this brand of food and we continued with our puppy he is a golden retriever and he LOVES all the flavors! Great no filler dog food. Would recommend
