My GSD has had bowel problems his whole life. I've tried every dog food, supplements you name it I tried it. This works. Perfect bowel movements and smaller as well, He is cured and it's easier clean up after him. Now he won't eat anything else and can even use it as treats. Worth the cost
My border collie eats the other formulations on a rotation. This one made his stomach have serious issues. Multiple bouts of diarrhea, licking his butt, abd constant gas. Plus, it was super expensive. Don’t recommend
This food is great when made in Italy. It smells pretty good for fish and all the dogs love it at times 5 to 6 dogs. For some reason, Chewy now had bags made in Serbia. When I open the back from Serbia, the smell was bad. One of our dogs will not eat the food from Serbia but will eat that food from Italy. I won't eat the food from Serbia either as the smell is really bad. This means the food is not consistent from different manufacturing locations. This means I will be buying locally from pet stores so I came make sure the food in Italy.
I was very excited about this dog food because of the quality and what I had heard about it, but it did terrible things to my my Australian Shepherd's stomach. I introduced it slowly into my dogs diet for a few weeks, he got terrible diarrhea and constipation to the point I had to soak his bum, and cut his fluffy butt. It got so bad at one point that he had bloody stool and I thought he was sick from something else until it clicked it was the food. Soon as I took him off it and fed him something else his bowl movements immediately started to get better and were back to normal within a day. Chewy's customer service was extremely helpful. Based on reviews it seems to work well with some pups, but not mine!
As others have noted, this food (which our dog used to love) has had a formula change and apparently is no longer made in Italy. Of course you don't get a price break for that. Newer bags seem stale, the kibble is lighter colored, and the smell of fish (perhaps not the most appetizing, but our dog loved it) is completely gone. We rotate food, and before when it was time for this one our dog's enthusiasm was obvious. Now you can tell he barely tolerates it and just eats if he's really hungry. Without toppings (we add Stella and Chewy raw freeze-dried and Blue biscuits) he wouldn't eat a bite. Sigh, time to look for another food yet again.
I don't know if Farmina has changed the formula with the ocean ancestral grain or what, but my dog will not touch this. He used to love it, now he won't touch it. He would rather not eat than touch this flavor.
This dog food according research is one of the best, packed with great ingredients and missing things like synthetic K. We have tried all of Farmina’s large dog flavors and our poodles seem to like this codfish flavor the best. They did also like the chicken, but my male dog gets itchy when he eats chicken. I was very glad to find a great dog food that they both like!
This is our second time trying this brand. Our pup was not a fan of it but ate the first bag. We ordered again and he is refusing to eat this bag.
Farmina is the only food that got my dog to have consistent poops. He has not had runny diarrhea since and that is a plus. I also feed the fish formula since he has really bad dry skin and hot spots and I was actually able to take him off of the salmon oil and just exclusively feed this. I also got a family member to switch their dog to it, and all of their dandruff disappeared, and that’s just the chicken and pomegranate recipe. I love that they have grain inclusive ones since a lot of us are concerned about DCM. So far there is only one case with farmina, so I am very happy about that and will continue to stick with their great ingredients and research. Although I hope to see some feeding trails soon.
My pup ate a whole bag of this food last month, but absolutely refused the latest bag. I assumed she was just feeling off and kept pressing it, but finally ordered her previous Acana kibble and she happily /ravenously ate that. She’s not super picky, so assume it was a bad batch, but bummer to throw away $30+ dollars.
