After our vet recommended switching to a grain-containing dog food, I did quite a bit of research and picked this Farmina flavor for my Collies to try. Compared to other dog foods on the market, it's got an overall great combination of high crude protein content, low fat content, and grain content. My pups absolutely love it and enjoy eating it as much as they like their treats, which amazes me! I think they especially love the lamb and blueberry taste--and the fact that the kibbles are coated with fish oils that add extra flavor (but surprisingly do not make the food smell!). It certainly is pricey, but to me, it's worth the investment for them!
My Pittie pup decided he didn't like any type of moist food. He had been on raw and was slowly just not wanting it, same with any canned or Fresh Pet. Even a little of my homemade stew didn't fly! Switched to kibble and freeze dried. He loves the freeze dried, but to feed that exclusively for a dog this size is impossible, cost wise, at least with 20+ other critters. I was giving him some of the kibble my Mini Aussie eats (she has many issues and also refuses any type of moist food) but he seemed to have difficulty with the small kibbles. After much research, found this in the larger kibble. It came HIGHLY recommended. Smells nice, no wheat, corn, soy or peas. Awesome! His first bowl (with a some freeze dried) was inhaled!!! He hasn't eaten a full meal in months. I started with the lamb, also got some chicken. If all goes as planned, will be getting the big bag! I definitely prefer them to eat raw, but if they won't, they won't. The ingredients are great and I'm going to try the small kibbles for the picky Aussie.
Switched my dog to this food and it's been amazing for her coat, plus she goes bonkers for it. The giant kibble size also forces her to chew and not eat as quick. The bag has a very strong blueberry scent. Not sure if the nitrogen sealed bags make a big impact on freshness of the kibble, but I did notice the blueberry scent stuck around for 3 weeks after opening before it started dissipating (provide the bag remains upright so the nitrogen stays at the bottom). However, in my latest order, I noticed the bags were not all vacuumed sealed and have a small puncture. The punctured bags also do not smell like blueberries and my dog won't go near them. Seems like Chewy might not be checking the products before they're being shipped, so you receive something that has oxygen introduced and has gone rancid. Will not order from Chewy again. Hoping to just find it at a local pet store instead.
I rehomed a older(8)German Shepherd female eight months ago. The former owner made me promise to feed N&D Ancestral food, which she had eaten from puppy days. I've had a number of shepherds over the years and have always fed a quality food. I do not find N&D any more expensive than others, and have found I feed a bit less to keep her weight down. I alternate between the chicken and lamb based, because she has a sensitive tummy. Other than runny poop when I first brought her home, (stress from leaving the only home she had known), there have been no issues. I do add an cooked egg in the am and a bit of vegetable in the evening, alomg with a squirt of salmon oil, she eats eagerly. My 17 year old cat always has to grab a kibble or two for a treat. I have noticed no offending odor, but store it in an airtight container. I also mix some of the old flavor with each change. My groomer says she has the nicest coat she has seen on a shepherd. Highly recommend.
I have a dog with seasonal allergies and a senstive tummy / GI. We've tried many foods, and have finally found one that works for us! Before this, we tried a lot of different proteins, and the big name brands and their formulas for sensitive tummies. The result was always an itchy dog with chronic ear infections from yeast. After about a month of fully being on this Farmina food, we finally have consistently solid poops, and have not had any ear infections! We are so grateful to have finally found a food that agrees with our pups tummy. In my opinion, it is worth the price.
Our golden retrievers love this food ! I was looking for quality ingredients good for large breeds. I like some grain in their food. I worry about feeding too much chicken and the lamb was a great choice !
Our staffy is about 3 years old, 50 lbs, and moderately active with allergy issues that we are still trying to figure out. Since we try a different brand/type of food every time we need a new bag, we didn't bother with a transition period, and she was perfectly fine with no digestive upset. It worked wonders to resolve her dandruff and gave her plenty of energy for her daily zoomies. But after awhile I noticed that she was straining to poop, and her turds were too firm. Despite drinking plenty of water, it was like she was perpetually constipated. The brand we switched to after this gave her perfect poops within days, so I think this formula just doesn't have as much insoluble fiber as she needs.
We absolutely love this product! It gets expensive as we have a large pack but we have some with IBS and allergies and have had zero issues once we switched over! Absolutely worth it. Life changer for our dogs for sure
I ordered this brand because a puppy we know loved their food. The kibble smelled awful, but the pup and my dog both seem to enjoy it. My dog is now 1 so I transitioned her over to the adult kibble. It’s TOO LARGE and my dog wants nothing to do with it. Definitely try the puppy food, but will be switching to another brand.
I had switched my dogs to this food from Earthborn Holistic due to erthborn been inconsistent in thier texture,looks and bad smell. So far my dogs like N&D. Even my picky eaters cavapoo and chihuahua like it. This is well known European brand and it's a bit overpriced. Hopefully my dogs continue to like it.
