  • Great Dog Food For Small Breeds!!!

    By on

    I have a 10-year-old Puggle named Miller and he absolutely loves this brand of food. Miller is allergic to dairy products and yeast so I have to be very strict when it comes to feeding him. This brand of dog food is perfect, he has had no allergic reactions to it or any issues eating it. He just likes making a mess when he's eating, yet he will make sure there is no piece of this food left behind.

    Best dog food on the market. I had a dog that could not eat other dog food but this one he can. Bite size is great size. They are not too big and not to small. Just right for my four Boston Terriers. I just wish they still made the fit and trim.

    Our labradoodle has a great deal of difficulty with food . . . until now. She loves Ideal Balance and she does NOT get an upset stomach with it. There are also no urine burn out spots on the lawn. She may even gain some weight.

  • great food

    By on

    I tired the grain free because my dog has allergies and heard this could help with some of those issues. I haven't seen much of a difference in that department but his stools went from soft/diarrhea to more firm. I think it has helped more with his digestive I'd anything. My baby must love it too as he is eating much better!!! Price is getting up there as it is a smaller bag for price i was paying for a 30lb bag.
