Ideal feeding amounts will vary by age, weight, and activity level so the guide below should be used as an initial recommendation. Divide the cups per day by the number of feedings per day. Be sure to always provide clean, fresh water. Along with dry food, we recommend feeding raw or wet food to help increase the amount of water in your pet’s diet.

    We are transitioning our two Corgis from Acana to this dry kibble. So far so good. They didn't even balk at the difference and I and they love the smaller kibble. Acana is a great dog food but too rich (protein/fat content) for our adult corgis and they don't have a healthy weight formula. They so far are doing great on it.

    I have 3 dogs and 2 cats and it's hectic keeping up with food and treats. I have hit the jackpot for shopping! They have different foods due to ages.

  • Finally he lost weight

    By on

    I had tried several different foods, including the really expensive one the vet "prescribed" for my golden retriever. Didn't change the exercise routine (2 mile walks at least 5 days a week - 2.5 mile hike on the weekend) but the weight never changed. Now my dog has lost 7 pounds over 3 months - doesn't sound like much but he even has his "waist" back

  • Quality food

    We were looking for something our Diebetic dog would eat, which at the same time was high protein and fiber, low fat and carbs. We had bought a small bag from out local pet store, and both our Diebetic and non Diebetic dog loved it served as is, so we ordered the big 21lb bag from Chewy. After a week or so, our Diebetic dog seemed to tire of it, and we thought "here we go again". However, I started adding homemade Chicken Broth to it, and she's back to wanting more when her bowl is empty. We were a little surprised to see the serving size reccomendations, the amount for the "maintain weight" seem quite low.

The only reason for 4 stars, not 5, is because we only feed this in the evening, they get wet food with Chicken for their morning meal, so we're really not seeing the weight loss in our non Diebetic dog, that others see when feeding this exclusively, but I don't doubt that the weight loss and health claims are real, as this seems to be a high quality product. … more
