I've been feeding Holistic Health for at least 10 years and was grateful to the other reviewers drawing attention to the fact that their salmon formula had changed. I feel that the company should've labeled their packaging accordingly ("new blend" or "updated ingredients") to keep customers informed. NOT PLEASED that their first three primary ingredients are not proteins at all! May be looking at Eagle Pack or Wellness brands in order to find something of comparable quality to their original salmon and anchovy recipe.
I’ve been buying same formula of Holistic Select for over 16yrs. Super bummed with the 30% + price increase and dropping the level of the key fish ingredients in place of grain fillers. I stoped buying it in October 2022 when I noticed these changes. Currently sampling new brands, so far Canidae Salmon and sweet potato are doing the job. Their customer service is poor, no call back or email return in regards to my questions and comments.
Our dog loves the salmon flavored kibble, as well as other Holistic flavors. I researched brands to find kibble with healthy ingredients, and am willing to pay a little more for food that keeps our dog at a good weight, energized, and with a healthy coat.
THE LAST 3 ORDERS OF THE 30PD FOOD THE KIBBEL IS NEVER THE SAME SIZE IT WAS THE SIZE OF A PEA ! I REACHED OUT TO THE COMPANY EVEN SENT PICTURES OF THE KIBBEL & WAS TOLD THEY CAN VARY IN SIZE I GET THAT BUT NOT TO THE EXTREME THAT IT IS AS I HAVE A DOBERMAN & SHE DOES LOVE IT BUT NOT GOOD FOR EATING NOTHING MUCH TO CHEW KIBBEL !
Anchovy and sardine meal moved to #4, rice and oatmeal moved to #1-3 on ingredient list. The kibble size has also changed. With the $10 price increase and formula change I’ll be moving to another brand that seems more worth the price now. Very disappointed because I loved having my dogs on this food for the last couple years.
Anchovy, Sardine, and Salmon ingredients to are now 4th, 5th, and 6th ingredients per the bag.
The first two ingredients used to be sardine and anchovy meal. Now those are 4th and 5th on the ingredient list. The first three ingredients are now brown rice, oatmeal and rice. What's up with that? Time to find a new dog food.
I really like this kibble. I have gone through a lot of brands trying to find what’s best for my girl and so far so good on this one. It’s important for her to have chicken free food but I also check every ingredient to make sure there are no controversial ingredients and this one checked out! I’m happy knowing that this food is high quality and affordable. It’s also pretty high calorie which is great because it lasts longer than other foods with fillers. I get a lot of compliments on how soft her coat is and she’s very shiny!
First 3 ingredients are rice, oatmeal, brown rice. Poop isn't as firm. And they increased price.
So far so good. They like it. I like it because there's no peas or corn.
