Description

Every Farmina food is made with the best ingredients with the correct amounts of protein, fats, limited carbohydrates and advanced long life vitamins and minerals. The Natural & Delicious high protein, 20% Ancestral Grain formulas are comprised of 60% animal ingredients (pre-cooking weight), 20% organic spelt and organic oats and 20% vegetables, fruits, vitamins and minerals. These diets are also quite different from competing foods because they use better quality protein sources that are devoid of bone, so ash is as low as 6.80% and calcium and phosphorous levels are controlled.

  • The #1 ingredient in this high protein, limited carbohydrate, and low fiber all life stage dog food is deboned chicken. It's been formulated for small and mini breeds with a smaller kibble size.
  • 92% of protein is from quality animal sources which makes for a low ash content. Ingredients are also fresh and never frozen for optimum nutrition.
  • It's a low glycemic formula so it's a great option for pets that need a food that won't spike blood sugar.
  • This GMO-free formula doesn't contain peas, lentils, pea protein, chickpeas, or added plants oils.
  • Natural omega fatty acids promote healthy skin and coat while added pomegranate and berries are rich in antioxidants to help fight free radicals.

    Bought the bigger size

    By on

    Think I’ll try the smaller size again. My dogs have been constipated since eating the medium/large size. Will try more water on it first. Any suggestions?

    So Far, So Good

    By on

    I have two seniors and one pup. The two seniors are to the point that they eat very little. They don't even like deli meats which they loved in the past as a snack. I have ordered every type of canned, fresh, human-grade wet food, nothing. However, they all like this dry food. It is just the right size for small to medium breeds. I give them dog supplements and as long as they are eating this, I feel they are getting their daily nutrition.

    Great product and not all meat based.

    By on

    I used This product for my cats a few years back. My cats ate it well and thrived on it so I decided to try it for our new, very fussy Norfolk Terrier pup as he was not eating another so-called quality product made specifically for small breed puppies. Always been very pleased with Farmina's product line and with having no children we are real animal fanatics.

    Not a winner

    By on

    I was hoping my dog would like this. He went up to it once, smelled and never went back to it. He must remember the smell because he wouldn’t go near his bowl each time that I put this food out. He refused to eat it. He rather go hungry and not eat than take a bite of this. I finally gave up after 2 days. This food also smells bad.

    Switched from Earborn

    By on

    My Rottie/Lab had been on Earthborn grain free since she was a pup. Her skin, coat, teeth and weight have always been pristine. But with the DCM scare, I felt it was best to use caution and find a grain inclusive food. After a LOT of reading, I decided on the Ancestral Grain. She made the transition very easily and, after a few weeks, is still doing well on it. Its approximately the same in calories, so I didn't have to make much change in her feeding. Planning to transition my 4 month old Golden pup to Farmina puppy food from the Purina food my vet recommended, as he is already being treated for a skin and ear infection and is itching nonstop. Good food = healthy dogs!

    Excellent food

    By on

    Our finicky dog actually eats this food without turning up his nose. I have friends who use Farmina. We chose this one, Ancestral Grains, because research showed that Spelt and Oats provide very good nutrition, and Farmina is non-GMO. This is huge, IMO. And the rest of the ingredients are excellent.

    Great Food

    By on

    The ingredients are great and my dogs love it. Unfortunately their stools aren’t where they need to be. Extremely soft and mushy.
