  • Great food, fair price!

    By on

    Started using this when we brought our first puppy home, she loves it, very healthy and at a reasonable price. Brought our second puppy home about 2 weeks later, she was using Canidae puppy, but within a few days wouldn't eat it anymore! We started mixing this with hers and she loves it! Will soon switch her to 100% Hills Science Diet Puppy too. Great option for budget minded puppy parents that still need good nutritional value!

  • This is a great puppy food

    By on

    Our Vet recommended this food for our 8wk old miniature dachshund puppy. He has been on this food for 2 months now. The kibble is small and just right for puppies. A bonus is that the food has no strong odor to put him off his food. Chewy has an excellent price on this food, much cheaper than the vet office or the local pet store and fast delivery right to my door. Very convenient!

    My 6 mon old puppy loves this food. I introduced her to this food that was recommended by her vet and she's eating it really well. The bites are small enough for puppies to get their chew on. Love it!

  • Wow!!!

    By on

    Obviously the whole bi-product thing is kind of a damper but my puppy was being fed hils science diet large breed puppy food at the SPCA and we kept that going but I wanted to make sure he got the best food and the healthy development label sold me, thought I'd give it a try and just WOW!!! My puppy didn't eat aLOT so we always kept his bowl filled, but with this stuff we can't do that anymore. He DEVOURS!! This food. I'm a little upset that they're tiny kibbles cuz I liked using his food as a treat but if the puppys happy, I'm happy!!!
