I have a 12 week old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and Dr. Gary’s was recommended as a good food to give her. I’m just wondering if I should use the puppy food or the Large Breed Dog Food.

This formula can be given to puppies as well. For puppies you may feed up to 33% more than suggested adult levels to maintain optimum body weight.

Dog started itching

I bought this my gsd. Just mixing a quarter cup to his current made him start itching. Tried it a few more days with the same results. Good ingredients but not for my boy.

Great food

We love this brand and they have so many options so you can find the perfect fit for your dog. I have 2 picky eaters and they both love this food.

In less than a year this bag has decreased in size by 2 lbs, the quality of ingredients has been downgraded, and the price has increased by $15. Unsustainable.

Best Breed Dog Food

Dr Garys Best Breed has been our dog food since we brought our Rottweiler pup home at 7 weeks. She started out with Working Dog and at 2 years eats Large Dog. We supplement with bone broth, fresh veggies and beef or chicken.

Big Mouth approves.

I switch out my boy’s kibble every 3 months in order to ensure he doesn’t get bored. I use it as a base and add his meat, vegetables, and fruit, plus raw with bone separately. This food has him extremely satisfied, interested, and the ingredients and ratio are great for giant breed dogs (Perro de Presa Canario) at a lower price. I’ve done all the expensive brands and this excels over many.

Consumer Awareness - New formula 2022

The ingredients changed summer of 2022. I started my dog on this brand years ago for the probiotics and holistic factor as I did the research and found the ingredient list to be high quality. Post Covid I understand things have been changing on many levels when the bag weight was decreased from 30lb to 28lb. Unfortunately the bag label also changed and as I finished the old bag happened to notice the kibble was significantly drier and smaller. So I looked at the label and found variances although the bag says nothing about a new formula. Probiotics went from 31million CFU to 10 million. New product added taurine. No iron on new label but ingredient list shows Iron Proteinate (same as original and still 9th ingredient from last; so I can only assume there’s no less than 275 mg), new has no vitamin c, more egg than barley, and a couple other variances. Due to lack of transparency and visual quality variance, I’m personally inclined to doubt quality of manufacturer as it’s clearly not the same. I’m still buying this for my dog but looking around. Im not saying this is horrible food. I purchased intentionally at onset in lieu of adding probiotics to food. 10 bil CFU is standard, so the new food does provide the daily allowance. I’m on the fence why they wouldn’t indicate there’s a change and for not labeling iron as a mineral. The way the ingredients list changed doesn’t seem like a big deal but when I look at quality, I can see noticeable difference as to something I may not give my dog. It looks grey instead of moist, rich and nutritious. For these reasons, I suspect the nutrition label isn’t telling the whole story. Also, you’d probably not notice a new volume weight because the bag doesn’t point out/ advertise *new size but does list it on the bottom. The price is still the same, and effort went into changing packaging so the 2lbs is barely noticed. Chewy CS confirmed the size change moving forward, when I inquired. I guess it’s up to interpretation if these are concerns but wanted to share what info isn’t being shared transparently from the manufacturer and misidentified nutritional content labeling. I usually swap bags and never would’ve known this formula changed had I not saw the kibble was dry. I actually thought it was a bad batch of food but guess this is the new normal for Dr Gary’s. Photos show quality and mind you that the old large kibble recipe was at the bottom of my food container and lost some of the moisture. The fresh out of bag nuggets looked almost wet but you can see what you were getting considering how healthy it still looks, months after opening.

Dogs won't touch

I have 3 dogs and I decided to try this for them because their other food was causing my lab time have diahrea. Well I was so excited for them to try it. Unfortunately all 3 of my dogs won't touch it. My lab will eat anything! He won't touch this food. Guess I need to find a new food for them...suck cause I spent hours reading reviews to try and find the best for them.

Dog Preferred

Swapped from Blue Buffalo and while switching, my dog ate around the Blue Buffalo to eat all of the Best Breed. Quality dog food that my golden doodle loves! We have been using Best Breed for 9 months now.
