I heard such good things about this food so when it was time for new dog food I decided to switch my dog over to this Landfowl recipe. I transitioned her food as directed, but we are almost through with this entire bag now and she has had diarrhea every single day from this :( reading other reviews, seems maybe they changed formulas or something, back to the kibble search again
I have one dog that has cardiomyopathy from "grain free diets" high in legumes who gets diarrhea from almost everything but raw food. I have another dog who is a picky eater also with a diarrhea problem with raw foods--ugh! SO far (after 2 years of feeding separate diets) this is the only kibble they can BOTH eat ! AAAAhhhhh Yeah!
You can tell that this is a high-end kibble just from looking at it. It’s dense without too much filler. My dog absolutely loves the flavor too!! The hardest part was doing a gradual transition from her old food, because she just picked out the Essence and didn’t want to eat any of the old food!
I searched, compared and searched again, Chewy's entire inventory of kibble looking for the healthiest option I could find. I think this is it! Real food, low processing, no legumes and healthy grain inclusive, which is essential per my vet. No GI issues and the dogs love it. It is on the expensive side, but I will give my pack of 4 the best I can afford. Wish the bag came in a larger size.
Much research and searching led us to this food. We wanted a safe grain free without typical fillers such as peas, pea flour (can cause heart issues) gluten, etc. This is our new kibble and the dog really enjoys it mixed with canned Purina Beyond Chicken and Primal freeze dried raw.
Our dog’s countless food allergies cause her yeast ear infections and diarrhea, so it’s easy to tell when a food is causing a reaction. Since switching to Essence LIR, our pup’s ears have been clear and her poops have been solid (FINALLY!!) Fewer ingredients mean less “extra stuff” that make battling allergies difficult. It’s hard to find a LIR that is still high protein and grain-inclusive, and this ticks all the boxes! I do wish the kibbles were bigger for my large breed dog, but hydrating with bone broth/water prevents inhalation (she clearly loves the flavor!) A couple tips: if your dog needs probiotics, you’ll need to supplement, and be sure to check the feeding recommendations. The calories per cup are a little high, and the bag recommends fewer cups than we were used to feeding. Rehydrating bulks up the volume!
This food has the minimal amount of filler allergens fir my golden retriever. This food does not provide all his nutrients i think Taurine is zero or next to none. His coat on this alone was matted and dull. I added Beyond wet food and his color and coat is looking healthier. Thank you Chewy for working with me to get it right for my boy. His allergies are better
This is the only dog food my 2 Italian spinone can eat. Due to food allergies
My crocker spaniel mix is allergic to almost to everything and this food has helped so much.
We bought this food to be a "treat/reward" food for our Boxer instead of giving him biscuits or other treats. He gets a little handful in his bowl as a reward for various things and he is smart enough to know if it is his regular grain inclusive food (which he loves as well for his meals). He's a Boxer and loves to eat, but he REALLY loves this food. It looks and smells like a rich, flavorful food, so I understand his reaction. We will order it again.
