    Less expensive than it first seems

    By Bones on Dec 5, 2021

    This is the only food my mini goldendoodle puppy will scarf down without a hassle. If you follow the package’s cups-per-day guidelines, it seems outrageously expensive. But I asked my vet how many calories my puppy needs per day, and realized that I was feeding him almost DOUBLE his max by following the lowest end of the package range for his age & weight. (He is 18 lbs & 5 months and needs 340 cals, or a cup and 3/4 per day. 400 cals max for a day of vigorous exercise. NOT 3–4.75 cups, or 570–902 calories per the package!) Apparently all dog food packages grossly overestimate feeding amount. Quality is great and picky puppy loves it enough to use for treats. Def ask your vet to do the calculation This is the only food my mini goldendoodle puppy will scarf down without a hassle.

    This is my pups favorite thing to eat

    By BritA on Oct 22, 2021

    My aussie is a bit of a food snob and turns his nose up to most anything, but adding this as a topper to any dry food gets him excited every time. I crumble it up a bit on top of his food so he doesn't just eat it off the top, works great.

    super product

    By rottlady on Jul 19, 2021

    I use this as treats for my puppy as it’s completely balanced and using it does not screw up her calcium phosphorus intake I love that I can break it into pieces If I fed it as food meals I’d rehydrate it

    My Foxy is such a picky eater

    By Buddycat4 on May 30, 2021

    My pom is such a picky eater. Thought I would give this a try! NOPE ! She won't eat it but she dose this cute thing with her nose and pushes it away! What am I going to do with this girl? We have tryed dry Orijen puppy food, dry Nutro brown rice and chicken puppy food and now this brand of food! Perhaps I just spoil her too much by preparing her homemade food and now she's just not going to eat any of the already made dry hard stuff!

    Finally Freeze Dried Puppy!

    By MarinaBena on May 9, 2021

    This is one of the only brands of freeze dried puppy food I could find! I love that it includes ground bone and variety of parts of animal/prey, that being said, it smells pretty bad! Not like some other freeze dried adult foods we've tried. Puppy seems to love it, but doesn't go wild for it. Our dog is really picky, and he does pick these morsels out leaving the dry kibble in the bowl. Overall I'd say we like it! But the calorie /cup ratio is not very good, especially for the price. My puppy fills up after about 1.5 cups per meal, but for his weight, requires 10 cups a day? That's almost an entire bag/day. No way he can keep up with that much volume of food, so I'm not sure if he's getting enough This is one of the only brands of freeze dried puppy food I could find!

    He Loves it!!

    By saraB on Apr 26, 2021

    My Giant breed puppy loves it. I've started adding it to his large breed puppy kibble and he's gobbling it down! It is the perfect combination for a picky pup. When I opened the package it smelled so good too. I'll be keeping this on the menu for quite a while.
