    Switched from Gastrointestional food

    By Laura on Jun 13, 2020

    Excellent ingredients in this food. Organ by products which dogs love. I was looking for a more nutritional food for my 1 and 13 year old Yorkies. They love this product. I do still give them royal canon wet gastro food, but I see an improvement in their energy levels, may switch to instinct wet food Excellent ingredients in this food.

    I really wish

    By charlie on Sep 9, 2020

    I wish that Izzy liked this food. She is a 10 year old Cairn/Yorkie mix and went on a hunger strike for 2 days until I got other food for her. She's pretty fickle, so I don't think it is the food's fault!

    Instinct of food

    By on

    The best I have used it was not as palatable to her as some of the cheaper brands, but, now that she has been on it for two weeks she loves it.

    All four love this food

    By on

    I am so happy all four love this food. They started eating it while I was pouring it in their dish. It is rated five stars by Dog Food Advisor. I will be feeding the Solid Gold too.

    Good but not for us

    By on

    This food was a great upgrade from a previous uninformed Pedigree purchase. My dog loves it to the point I can even use the little kibble as low-reward treats for reinforcing previously learned tricks. However, my dog seems to have a sensitive stomach and while this is good enough to keep him happy and diarrhea-free (most of the time) it might not be the best option for puppies like him.

    Our two Chihuahua/Terrier mix dogs like this food.

    By on

    Grain free, however I supplement their diet with oatmeal and vegetable or fruit treats that I make, plus slices of sweet potato that I dehydrate in the oven.

    Good so far

    By on

    I just started my chihuahua on this food and it’s so good so far. She likes the kibble size is small compared to her puppy food she use to eat.

    So disappointed

    By on

    My three dogs won't touch this food. A waste of a lot of money! I should have gotten the smallest amount possible to test it, but with all its goodness I expected them to be crazy about it. Just like health foods for people, they sound good but often don't taste good, lol. I guess we will have to sustain the loss of $ and go back to a brand that's less super-premium.

    Perfect for Havanese

    By on

    I just switched from Acana to this food. My Havanese loves it. The small size kibble is perfect for my little guy.
