Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle Great for puppies
I have both a 10 month old and an 11 week old. both are lab pit mixes. I give them this once a day mixed in with their kibble. Its sort of a treat. Both dogs scarf it down!
Definitely make sure to mix it with warm water. I got lazy one day, mixed it with cold and it did not get to its normal volume.
The meat chunks are a nice bonus, mine were mixed in when I got the bag. It was always a surprise to see which pup got it in their bowl!
Buying again now!

This is the next best thing to raw. All ingredients are dehydrated, meaning they are not cooked at high temperatures so nutritional integrity remains intact and ingredients are simple - what you'd put on your own plate. They are also human grade, not slaughterhouse and mill scrapings! I love the chunks of "example meat" they place on top so you can see the quality of the meat that is ground into the rest of the food. I use these as special treats! This is a perfect food for senior dogs, picky eaters who need an enticement (used as a gravy) a food to wean puppies on, convalescing dogs, or "gulpers" who choke on kibble. It smells like Sunday dinner! The variety of proteins available is excellent and keeps food boredom away. The one caveat is that it is not a good choice as a sole diet for large breeds as the amount of water required to reconstitute per meal is extensive and, in our case, led a completely house trained dog (standard poodle) to have piddle accidents in the house. But for small breeds, this doesn't seem to be a problem at all. For me , its greatest value is for weaning puppies. I know they are getting great, solid nutrition of the highest possible quality and the texture is soft and I can control its consistency and temperature.

by SarcasticLipStick We were unsure but taste buds don't lie!
I have a 14lb shiba inu named Kiko and she is a SUPER PICKY eater. Shes allergic to chicken and various other things and after 4 days of debating on whether to buy this product i splurged and bought it for her. Shes only had dry kibble and the first day i gave it to her she snuffed her nose up at it.
The second day she ate it like it was going out of style and now prefers to be fed with a spoon, rotten i know. There was no large chunks of meat at the top as i was expecting. Rather it was lost in the content of the powdery bag but after digging for a good while i found a few good pieces. They do not rehydrate in the bowl as u put water in with the powder so MAKE SURE you put them in seperate hot water for a good hour or so to let them get soft. Then add to the mash. It does smell good though!!!! And Kiko eats and eats and makes a happy plate!!! But my standard male poodle will not even acknowledge it! Try adding some of their usual kibble to it!!!! ALL in all, its a good product, just wish there was less carrots and more meat! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan Great product for senior dogs!
We switched our 2 miniature poodles over to this when they were getting older and having sensitivity to the raw Bravo diet they had been on since birth. They both like this and have been healthy and happy with new diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Riley Even our pickiest eater loves this!
We have a senior dog and a service dog. Both require special diets in order to keep them healthy.
Our senior dog got to the point where she refused to eat anything except chicken and rice.
Our service dog was starting to experience skin/coat and stomach issues with the previous food.
So we went looking for something that both could eat and provide all the necessary nutrition.
Thankfully we found a location that gave us free samples of the Grandma Lucy's Pure Performance and Artisan Pork. They LOVED it! We decided to go with the Artisan Pork because it had a slightly higher protein content and our senior dog licked the bowl so hard after the food was gone she actually tipped it.
Since then their coats have improved, no more stomach issues and funniest of all our senior dog actually chases me into the kitchen because she wants her food.
The only drawback other than the cost is that I have to feed my service dog considerably more than when she was on dry food. She lost nearly 4 lbs in a week when I was feeding her the same amount as her dry. So just keep an eye on that. You will likely need to increase it to the higher recommended serving of an active dog if your dog doesn't sleep 12 hours a day like our senior does.

This is excellent food! My boxer absolutely loves his "Lucie's". Small bag but don't be fooled it lasts forever. We use 1.5 cups dry for our 70# boy and once you add water and mix it up there is a ton of food in the dish! Smells great and our boy finds it good to the very last bite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GSDLover Very satisfied
Have a senior dog that recently had bowel surgery. Musculature in lower bowel now compromised. She is a historically raw-fed dog, but started having trouble since the surgery. The Artisan Pork recipe appears to be making things easier on her. She is tolerating and thriving on this simple and easy to digest diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goldador25 Excelent quality ingredients for a reasonable price.
This product has a short ingredient list containing hormone and antibiotic free meats, no grains or byproducts, and is more nutritious than most kibble due to being minimally processed while still providing the same convenience. I appreciate finding a product with similar nutrition to a raw diet because it allows me to feed my service dog a healthy diet when we travel without too much inconvenience. Both of my dogs have allergies, one to chicken and the other to almost every kibble I have tried. I prefer to feed a grain free diet so this food is perfect. I feed this food along with a kibble from Great Life/Pioneer Naturals and there are no more chronic ear infections.
