    Marked Energy Increase

    By on

    We bought this on sale to try and followed the recommendation to mix it (half) with their old food until they became used to the high fiber. (I highly recommend mixing it. Nobody wants a gassy dog!) This may sound crazy, but we have seen a huge increase in their energy levels. They now need an extra walk to burn off some excess energy. Nothing else has changed in their routine, so I am attributing the extra playfulness to the food. Also, one of my Bugs has an allergy that irritates her skin, but this food has not triggered it.

    disappointing

    By on

    I found Great Life a few years ago and recommended it to many of my friends who also own Shar-Pei. Recently I noticed some itching issues and years again... viola! The limited grain and POTATO free, now contain sweet potatoes. Also “buffalo meal”, instead of buffalo. Back to the drawing board:((( Those that have posted that they’ve switched brands, can u share what brand you’re using now?

    Very Low Protein Content

    By on

    The guaranteed analysis in the product picture was 30%, but when I received it, the label on the bag says it's only 26%. I checked the website again, and one of the pictures of the product shows 30% guaranteed analysis, but the under nutrition info. page, it says 26%. I should have paid closer attention, and checked the discrepancy with Chewy before ordered it. But it was on sale and I trusted the product picture. If it were 30% min. protein, it wouldn't have been so bad, but this Grain-Free Buffalo food makes it a very poor protein source with only 26% min. crude protein, I'm afraid. It's not obvious how many grams of protein is going to end up in a food bowl when we actually feed our dogs The guaranteed analysis in the product picture was 30%, but when I received it, the label on the bag says it's only 26%. I checked the website again, and one of the pictures of the product shows 30% guaranteed analysis, but the under nutrition info. page, it says 26%.

If it were 30% min. protein, it wouldn't have been so bad, but this Grain-Free Buffalo food makes it a very poor protein source with only 26% min. crude protein, I'm afraid. It's not obvious how many grams of protein is going to end up in a food bowl when we actually feed our dogs as the guaranteed analysis are based on weight, not by caloric needs - Why does it matter? Well, let's say, Dog Food A is 500 kcal/cup with 30% of min. crude protein and Dog Food B is 250 kcal/cup with 25% of min. crude protein. Let's say, a dog needs 1,000 kcal/day, and both foods weigh 8 oz/cup; then you'd have to feed 2 cups or 16 oz of Food A/day, and 4 cups or 32 oz of Food B. If you look at only the guaranteed analysis, Food A seems to have more protein, but as fed basis, Food A ends up containing only 4.8g of protein (16 oz x 30%) while Food B would supply 8.0g (32 x 25%)! Great Life dog food being more calorie dense than other food I usually get, I was concerned if this Buffalo dry dog food contains adequate amount of protein. So I actually took the time and did the calculation myself. Although the guaranteed analysis says min. 26% crude protein, it contains 431 kcal/cup. As a fed basis, it ends up feeding A LOT LESS grams of protein with this food than Iams dog food! This Buffalo blend provides barely 25% of protein based on my dogs' calorie needs. For the price, I expected it a much better nutritional profile than this. Granted, there is no mystery meat or any questionable ingredients in the mix. But the bottom line is, for barely above average protein content, the price is just too high. I'm happy with Grain-Free Salmon by the same brand, but not this Buffalo Dry Dog food. … more

    Now contains peas!

    By on

    My dog is highly allergic to alot of ingredients. I was Soo happy when I saw this back on the shelf, ordered 3 bags. When I opened it, I noticed it was not the same picture on the bag, I then read the ingredients to find it now contains a host of items my dog can not tolerate. A shame this wasn't marked as a changed recipe. I'm so glad I didn't feed this to him and I checked. Could have been very costly, in many ways

    Great Life Grain Free Buffalo Dry Dog Food

    By on

    This food worked very well for all three of my dogs. No problem switching them and they loved it. I feed many different foods to my dogs always switching brands and formulas so they get a wider variety of meat, vitamins, and minerals.

    changed ingredient

    The ingredients are different than stated on the website. Very disappointed. My dog has allergies and the ingredient list on the website would have worked for him unfortunately I can't say the same about the "actual ingredients" on the bag!!!

    No alergic reactions

    By on

    My dog has skin allergies and is allergic to most things found in dog foods. This one doesn't have any of the items on her "forbidden" list. Also, much less waste than any other food we have tried.
