    Outstanding Nutrition - Silky Coat - Minimal Waste

    By on

    I have two Chocolate Labs, one of which has severe food allergies to Potatoes and peas/chick peas etc. When I switched him over to Black Gold's Chicken and Brown Rice - his constant scratching and chewing dropped by 90% in the first three weeks after the switch. His entire demeanor changed and he is now much calmer and happier overall. I noticed that the amount of waste eliminated by the dogs is substantially less as the food seems to be digested thoroughly, and no straining to void their bowels. Their coats are slick and shiny and our vet has classified them as at their "Ideal Weights" given their ages and bone structure. For their level of energy consumption, only one cup in the morning I have two Chocolate Labs, one of which has severe food allergies to Potatoes and peas/chick peas etc. When I switched him over to Black Gold's Chicken and Brown Rice - his constant scratching and chewing dropped by 90% in the first three weeks after the switch.

    My dachshunds love this food!

    My two mini doxies love this food. They’ve been eating it since they were puppies. I used to soak the kibble in goats milk when they were just pups and heat it up in the microwave. Now I just serve the kibble as is and they gobble it all up!

    My dogs hated it.

    My dogs were not a fan of this food. I've never came across a food they didn't like. My male Akita wouldn't finish his bowl and my female Akita would flip her bowl and refuse to eat.
