Rated 5 out of 5 by Lia3 Excellent food for sensitive stomach
This food was a life saver for my Bouvier des Flanders and me! I tried so many products aimed to help dogs with sensitive stomachs and nothing helped. My vet ran all kinds of tests to rule out parasites and other causes of his extremely loose stools and could only determine that he must have caught a virus. He did better on a temporary diet of white rice and chicken but then went right back to his "normal" after he started to eat his dog food. Then I turned to Chewy and read reviews for all of the sensitive stomach formulas. He had already been on one that was no longer working for him. As soon as he started on Blackwood sensitive stomach formula, he was back to normal. I was shocked but very happily surprised. And he loves it, although I have to admit he will eat anything ;) As long as he remains "regular" on this food, I will never buy anything else for him. This is a lifesaver! Pricey but worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri127 Thus helped my dog.....FINALLY
I first would like to review my experience with Blackwood Customer Service before coming to Chewy.com. They were so generous with supplying me with samples to see if I could find a food that worked for my dog.
First time using Chewy.com. I ordered and very fast shipping time. I will be using them again.
For the past 2 yrs I have been struggling with my 8 yr old Shihtzu and constant itching and rashes. I found the perfect shampoo a few months ago to help....but I knew it was something in his food that was his trigger. I tried every food in PetSmart and petco....nothing worked. His itchy skin was driving me insane because his only other option was sterroids and predisone. I found out a few of his triggers were eggs and peas. Kibble was all he would eat. He wouldn't eat raw....he wouldn't eat canned....had to be kibble. I tried feeding him the best I could find. Either he would itch, turn bloody red.....scabby....or he wouldn't take to the food. I ran across Blackwood brand. My dog loves this food.....so I knew I was almost there. I will say....his skin got worse. But I kept researching and I found out that sometimes it can take a few months to see any improved conditions. He has been on this food for a month now and he hardly scratches at all! I'm so grateful that it worked! Is he 100% cured....no. However every time I wash him he seems to have less redness and less rash lesions....so I'm hoping in a few short weeks those issues will resolve. If your pet suffers from allergies.....give this food a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sugar This product is the first my lab has been successful with.
After trying five or six different brands and flavors for my lab, who has a very sensitive stomach, this product finally has helped her! We mixed her old food in for over a month so she had time to adjust and now she has been solely on this product for well over a month. The vomiting, lack of appetite at times, and loose stools have completely stopped. Her appetite is back and she is excited to eat every day! We no longer hear her stomach making loud unpleasant noises and she no longer has gas. I would recommend this product to anyone with a dog with a very sensitive stomach!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thaddeus4292 This Food Is Great
This food is great! I have a rottweiler puppy that just seemed to eat anything but very few things agreed with his stomach. I tried all types of food including those that were "easily digestible". It was really getting to me because he would fill his crate bottom with waste and be in it when I got home or on weekends when I could be there more with him I was taking him out every 20 minutes or so to go. This food was a huge save for me and him. I started to transition him as the vet recommended but started to notice that he was eating this food first and his old food was staying in the bowl. I was worried that because of this he would not take to the food well since he was flashing his digestive system with this new food. I was wrong! his poop become a little softer but I could tell that there was progress so I just started giving him the new food and to my surprise he was ok.
I'm so happy with this food and he absolutely loves it. His coat looks amazing and it's so shiny and black now. He even sheds less!
Great product. Also I can give him less of this food than I had to with any other food per the food chart on the back of the bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Italianmom63 Wanted to like it! Great ingredients!
My 12 yr old Lab has stomach issues due to the arthritic medicine we give her, I bought this in hopes that it would be easier on her stomach. She doesn't really care for it. Smells like peas. She's eating it but I have to mix it a 1/4 cup with other kibble and make it interesting with some wet food mixed in. Kibble is a small size and makes her chew.

by Aspen Amazing for sensitive stomachs!
We have been having tummy issues with our 10yo lab for quite some time now and flip flopped between foods over the years with very unstable results. We had gotten this exact food for one of our Scottie's years ago because he had skin allergies and thought to try it with our lab. He has never had such firm stools before this food! I cannot be more pleased with the results thus far and could not recommend this product more!

I have 3 big dogs, Great Dane, English Mastiff and a German Shepherd. The Great Dane and Shepherd both have sensitive stomachs. I have tried other Sensitive stomach brands before but they did not seem to work. This one works. Great Danes are known to have tummy issues. So, it was difficult to find a food especially for him. All three dogs adjusted to it well. They were being fed Blue Dog food Chicken and Brown Rice. This dog food is pricey, but it's worth it. I highly recommend this if your dog/puppy has tummy issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoomerGirl Preferred by Picky Eater :)
We have a Golden that eats everything. Our other "child" is a Golden/Sheltie mix and is very selective about her food and gets hot spots frequently. We've tried samples of this brand and have been so impressed that our Golden mix prefers this over other brands we are switching over to Blackwood. Very happy their products are made in the USA with USA ingredients.
