One of my girls is allergic to chicken, it is so hard to find food that does not contain chicken, this is a great alternative, and both of my girls love it. Plus, the cost does not break the bank! Only downside is, it can be hard to find or find in stock.
Two years ago our 6 year old dog developed food allergies. Because her test showed her to be reactive to every animal protein source, the vet recommended she be on a diet that included no animal protein. Well the poor dog was also allergic to beets and several other veggies common in vegetable based dog foods. After scouring the internet for months, we came across this pork based food. While her testing indicates a moderate reaction to pork, this is the least reactive of all the animal proteins tested and contained none of the vegetables she reacted to. We took a chance on this food and stuck with it for 2 months. Now, our beloved pet (and us) can sleep through the night with no scratching. I wouldn't say she loves this food, but she does not refuse to eat it either. This food has worked very well for us. For those who have dogs with allergies, dont give up. This may not be the solution for your dog, but there is likely another food that is.
I had 6 small mixed breed dogs who I have rescued over the years. They ranged in age from 3 yrs to 14 yrs. They all have had routine veterinary care, including blood work as they get older to stay ahead of any pending health issues. This fall they all seemed to become finicky with their existing dry food, and I was having to mix either canned or cooked food in with the kibble. After doing research to find a good alternative (I prefer feeding dry kibble and give specific raw fruits/veggies for treats). This food seemed like it would be good for all my pups, young and old. I did a vet recommended 2-3 week transition from old to new food, and things seemed good. However, after one week just on the new food, our oldest (and healthiest) dog went into aggressive and painful kidney failure. In 48 hours, my constant companion for many years went from a healthy senior who was gracefully slowing down to a shell of his former self - it was clear he was in extreme pain. Luckily, we had access to a group of specialists through our local emergency vet group. They ran a plethora of diagnostics, gave my guy much needed pain meds, and after evaluation by several vets of all the data, it was determined that he would not come back from kidney failure - his bloodwork was too far off the charts. With much sobs and tears, I had to decide that it was time to assist my “little shadow” to the rainbow bridge. I asked for a forthright and honest opinion on what caused his rapid kidney failure. The opinion, based on the info I provided, and his most recent well visit blood work, completely broke my heart. It was most likely my decision to make this change in his food (even though I did a slow transition), that caused its kidney failure. His prior diet was more chicken/rice/pumpkin based, not pork based. Please note I am not blaming this food, only sharing my story as a potential eye-opening warning to use caution when making a significant food change in your older pets. My heart hurts daily for my little old man. I just hope that sharing the outcome of my horrible decision might help save a life as well as undue heartache.
My dogs love this kibble! The first 5 ingredients are quality meat and grains. The company that makes this product, Pet Global, is also excellent and has a high standard for their products.
I bought this after many different foods. My dog was struggling with poultry allergies and I just wasn’t a fine of Purina Pro Plan SSS. I was so excited to find something with minimal but good ingredients and friendly to my wallet. I gave 3 stars only because in just over a month of finding this, the price has increased nearly $20 and is now the same price as all the other foods I’ve tried but with more food. Outside of that annoying price increase, the food has been good for my dog. After almost a year, he finally has good poop!!!
My 1 year old goldendoodle has severe food (protein) allergies. Every food trial has failed until now. I held out hope after reading reviews on this food. So far life is GREAT for my doodle on this diet!! I've now also transitioned my 11 year old doodle to this food (she has a sensitive stomach) and it agrees with her too.
My dog has never been picky but she won’t eat this
This food is awesome! It's the first kibble that my picky GSD mix will eat with no food topping or added wet food. I used to brag I could leave her kibble bag open on the ground and she wouldn't eat it, but now I need to make sure to hide her kibble away. Thank you for making a pork kibble that also has grains. I don't want to give her grain-free food and it's so hard to find things that work for her with her many food allergies. 11/10, we love it!
This food works great for my senior dogs and my young dog!
My dog wouldn't touch this kibble. I've reached out to Chewy several days ago regarding a refund and haven't gotten a response back
