    Best Food for Beagle w/ Allergies

    By SignoffHerd on Sep 11, 2021

    Our beagle is literally allergic to EVERYTHING. After countless vet visits, trying medications, RX food, and giving medicated baths - we did an allergy panel. We can’t always avoid his environmental allergies (grass, trees, and basically everything) - we aimed to control his food allergies. After looking at the ingredients on EVERY bag across numerous online and local pet stores - we found only one bag of food that fit his needs from Essence. He loves the food - he’s also not a picky eater. Our vet is impressed with how his health has improved - no more yeast and ear infections and we don’t have to give medicated baths 3xs a week anymore. We use his food as training treats for the other 3 dogs Our beagle is literally allergic to EVERYTHING.

    Amazing Food

    By CSch on Oct 23, 2021

    This food is extremely high quality. I searched high and low for a dry food with ingredients as good as these for our pup. We travel a lot, so wet food isn’t always practical. Just as a side note, the fat content of this food is quite high, so it may take your dog a bit of time to adjust to!

    AMAZING!!!

    By SophieandLuna on Aug 29, 2021

    My Papillon and Dachshund both had coat issues for so long. My dachshund had super bad dandruff and super itchy skin that no matter what I put on it, nothing seemed to help her feel some relief. My papillon’s hair would grow uneven when trimmed, and her undercoat would be spiky like it was barely growing at all. Both of their coats were dull and dry. I looked everywhere, changed everything I could think of before coming to the conclusion it was their food. I sat down and weighed the pros/cons, read every review across multiple brands that I had always been told were “great sources of nutrients for your dog” and found they absolutely were not.

There’s no more dandruff on my dachshund, my papillon has super shiny, even growing hair even when trimmed down. Not to mention the change in attitude, their behavior and energy levels! They’re like puppies again! I couldn’t ask for a better food. This truly changed my dogs lives for the better and I’m truly great full. … more

    Our picky dog actually eats it

    By Dewey on Aug 16, 2021

    Our Portuguese water dog is exceptionally picky with the kibble he will eat and has a sensitive stomach on top of it. We've tried a ton of kibble options, but found it challenging to find a high quality fish-based one. Essence was the first food brand ever that he ate the whole bowl of food right away. Plus, being a LIR, his stomach has been great on it, no throwing up or diarrhea at all.

    By Gsdbreeder on Sep 6, 2021

    The food is great . All of my dogs do great on this food. I only gave it 3 stars because the time waiting for the food was about two weeks .....I was told it was in another warehouse...it shipped from almost the same location

    Our go-to kibble

    By Pedro1976 on Jun 14, 2021

    We switched to Essence after trying a few other brands, which our dog liked, but we decided to stick with this one and have been on it for a couple years now. He likes this one and we've gotten the Landfowl recipe too. Our dog has always been very picky about his food, but he loved this right away.

    Good quality and ingredients, and our Shepherd approves!

    By 2Shepherds on Apr 22, 2021 top100Contributor

    Happy to have found a high protein limited ingredient fish based food with herring to add to our Shepherd's meal rotation, and very happy the Essence limited ingredient leaves out potatoes, legumes, poultry and other meat fillers. Kibble size is small, but our girl has no trouble chewing it. I like the resealable bag (have only bought small bags so far, not sure if larger bags are resealable or not). Made by the same company as Zignature, quality and ingredients are top notch. Will continue to purchase.

    Smells yummy for fish!

    By JamesonBulldogges on Feb 27, 2021

    Kibble size is adequate and surprisingly it smells pretty dang good for a fish recipe! I have 5 bulldogs, and even my extremely picky girl will eat it willingly. (I think she likes the Landfowl LIR best though). I like the higher protein and fat, and limited, simple ingredients. Not to mention meats/meals being the first four ingredients. Appears to be a high quality food! ^_^

    This has no peas and is the best food ever

    By kylie on Feb 25, 2021

    I am so glad Chewy is finally carrying this food. My dogs love this food and their stools are firm. It is pricy but well worth it. It is limited ingredient but doesn't have a bunch of legume fillers.
