Healthy, Natural Protein

Smells bad / like plastic

The food smells like plastic and chemicals and my dogs won’t eat it what a waste of money. This is not a replacement for the light that I normally Buy.

Tried to cancel

Tried to cancel and reschedule this auto ship order twice. Got confirmation both times that it was cancelled, yet both deliveries were made. Now I have three months of food stocked up. Someone should check why the online ordering is not working properly.

Less Gas and she likes it

A positive change. Purina Sensitive Stomach appears to have changed something and Rosie developed some horrible gas. Now, less gas.

Great ingredients for some dogs

I love this food and the ingredients. I liked that it had no peas/legumes My dog loved it so much I could use it as treats. Unfortunately, chicken is another think along with peas and legumes that I have vaguely connected with my dog's soft stools. While I wish that Health Extension would offer this recipe and large bites size with other protein options, chicken is the only choice. I tried one other type, but the kibble was the size of a BB and kept choking my dog and getting stuck in his teeth, lips. So sadly, I'm trial and erroring my way to finding a new food.

Expensive, but among the best!

Was looking for a very healthy dry food our picky and stubborn adult American bulldog would like. We finally found it in Holistic; thanks primarily to our daughter, who feeds it to her two mastiffs. Our Rosa absolutely loves it and often wants more. Even better is the fact that she hasn't had any indigestion and is now very regular, with healthy-looking stools. If you can afford this pricey kibble, Holistic is very much worth it, especially in the long run.

All 4 pups love it

I have a Shiba inu and a Doberman. Both were eating justfoodfordogs since they were puppies. Recently, both of them seem to not want to eat it anymore. Tried going through the different recipes but still no. A few weeks ago, 2 dobbie pups joined our little family, they seem to like the justfoodfordogs but i had to find something else for their sisters. After crazy long research, i found out about Cardiomyopathy and was pretty stunned by it. I used to give my Shepherd (God rest her soul) Orijen for a few years of her life before switching to Justfoodfordogs as well. I haven't been on the kibble market for awhile but i realize most of the dry dog foods has some sort of legumes, lentils, chickpeas and such that seems to "contribute" to Cardiomyopathy (though mostly the grain-free ones). Then i stumbled onto this brand and i got to admit, all 4 babies seems to like it a lot, even the 2 older sisters. I'm glad that they had 0 recalls and quality + ingredients seems to be up there with the best of them. Best of all, no legumes etc. (though the grain-free ones does). So far I'm loving this brand and will continue to feed them this recipe.
