    My puppy loves it

    By on

    After learning about DCM, I chose to play it safe with both my puppy and my adult dog, and get away from grain free foods while they figure things out. I chose Ancestral Grains for its high quality ingredients. While transitioning my puppy, I noticed that he picked around the old food to get to this food first at every meal. He loves this food! It did take a bit of extra time to transition where stools were loose. But I gave it a little extra time and he’s doing great now.

    Maybe a good quality dog food.

    By on

    My two puppies would not even taste it so rather than throwing it away, I tried to feed it to the big dogs and they didn't want anything to do with it. Looks like I have a $64 bag of dog food for the garbage. When I opened the bag it smelled like decaying chicken. So disappointed.

    Wanted to like this food

    By on

    Have tried to acclimate my dogs to this food for well over a month and only 1/4 c for 40-55 lb dogs as well as a now 3 month old puppy. No go, stools are adversely affected with more then 1/8 of a cup. Very disappointing.

    Italian quality dog kibble

    By on

    Farmina is an excellent quality kibble. My dogs did not itch or show signs of allergies with Farmina. The kibble itself is really nice, firm and flat. My dogs would recommend this kibble compared to others!

    New Puppy Loves Farminia

    By on

    I started my pup on this two days after his arrival at eight weeks. Breeder had him on Diamond puppy which gave him runny stools. Its now my second bag he’s eaten and his poops are regular and firm. He eats every morsel and is thriving according to his Vet. I didn’t comment,at first because I was giving the food time. Its now a good ten or eleven weeks and I have no complaints. My Border Collie puppy is satisfied. My only question is when to switch him to the adult formula?

    Finicky Eater Approved!

    By on

    In December 2018 we got a Cavachon puppy. At 10 weeks old, she was a tiny 2 lbs. ball of fluff that was not interested in eating the food her breeder recommended. Our 6 year old Cavachon, however, was food obsessed (except when it came to kibble) and at 25 lbs., needed to loose a good 5 lbs., according to our vet. After extensive research, I was excited to find this formula that fulfilled the nutritional needs of both (my only reservation being my older dog’s history of turning her nose up to kibble). It has been 5 months since we first tried this product and I am thrilled to share that my older dog has lost the excess weight and the puppy is developing beautifully.

Both dogs devour it without hesitation and I love knowing that I am providing them with the best possible nutrition. As a side note, I was both surprised and impressed that the packaging is vacuum sealed! To ensure freshness and keep vermin from access, we store the kibble in a plastic ice chest, left in a cool, dry location. It’s much less expensive and easier to access than most traditional containers and is easy to store and move (especially if it has wheels and a handle). ;D … more

    Quality vs. Accuracy

    By on

    I'm certain the food is fine, but it's not what I ordered even though it's the same line of food. Disappointed with the customer service, but pleased that the pup still seems happy and thus far isn't exhibiting gastro problems in having to switch cold turkey to a relatively different food.

    Finally dog food with safe grains

    By on

    My Labrador puppy absolutely loves this! When the food arrived she could smell it thru the bag and turned her nose up at Fromm Large Breed puppy. Finally a safe grain dog food for large breed puppies. . Our puppy trainer recommended bc no legumes, after my vet said absolutely no grain free. I can rest a night knowing that Jolee loves Farmina large breed. She gobbles it up. I even use kibble as treats. We are thinking about trying the lamb version as well.

    Great food not a dependable source

    By on

    This has been a great food and I looked forward to recommending it but Chewys ability to reliably source it, is suspect. Out of stock again.

    Love that its low grain

    By on

    Finding a dog food that is potato, sweet potato and grain free is hard. This is a great alternative with ancient grains that do not cause my dogs skin to flare up! They seem to like the taste and the kibble size is small enough even for my 5 lb Papillon.
