My yellow lab Ellie had a chicken allergy and sensitive digestive system. When she was about a year old I found this food and her digestive system did great on it and she always liked it so I was a dedicated Kasiks customer and never tried to switch her to anything else. Fast forward 5 years, Ellie was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) after collapsing on a hike. This disease led to her premature death at age 7 after a year of medical management that involved thousands of dollars, giving 9 meds 5 times a day - luckily I’m a nurse and work from home to be able to give her the care she needed. The veterinary cardiologist that treated Ellie confirmed her condition was dietary related. There were no warning signs of Ellie’s illness until it was very severe and life threatening. Please talk with your vet and do your research on dietary related DCM and avoid foods like this that are grain-free and use peas, lentils, chickpeas as top ingredients - they could cause illness in your dog. Research is still being done to pinpoint the exact cause of DCM so food recalls have not yet taken place.

My Golden Retriever had quite a few issues when I got him as a pup. Lowered eyelids, teary eyes, etc. I tried several beef and chicken based kibble, and finally settled on removing that out of his diet and went exclusively fish. We settled on Kasiks and never looked back. In his 1 year check up, his vet was even surprised how his eyes have changed (initially recommending procedures that would've been $$$ when he was younger). I realize there are still some chicken in Kasiks, but a small amount is good I think so build familiarity and resistance to any allergens. Oh and his poops are fantastic. Great product.
Dog is a 9 year old Jack Russel in good health so far. He's been acting depressed and just doesn't like eating his food unless I put something in it to entice him to eat it, like eggs or something meaty or fatty. Has't seemed to affect him health-wise, but he just doesn't like it. He'll go at least a day or more without eating until he truly is just hungry enough at night and he knows the gig is up for the day, and then he'll eat right before he knows it's bedtime. He gets a few tidbits from husband during day, so is spoiled somewhat, but still is expected to eat his dog food, bottom line.
My 10 1/2 year old Lab mix is a bit fussy liking dry food. She immediately started eating this food.
Beware that if you want a one protein dog food, this has chicken fat in it. As I'm trying to eliminate all but one protein, I'll need to eat the cost of this food but it's my bad, I didn't read the ingredients closely enough. Also, just FYI, this is a very high calorie dog food so you'll be feeding less. If you don't need a one protein food I'm sure this is a good food, reading other reviews.
My dog is allergic to grain and has been on a grain free diet for about 8 years and hasn’t had any skin issues since going grain free. A Kasik’s sells person at a pet fair told me that this food was far superior to Taste of the wild and recommended we switch. We started feeding this to our dog and within a week his skin was in horrible horrible shape. I do not believe this food is truly grain free. We didn’t think it could be the food so for 4 months we fed him this food. We took him to vet and paid $$$ on medication that did nothing. When we ran out of the Kasiks my husband and I decided to go back to taste of the wild and his skin started getting better almost right away. If your dog has any allergies DO NOT BUY THIS FOOD.
My lab loves it! She hasn't had any hot spots from grains or other additives. Affordable and healthy.
The number one thing I want to mention is the food has lower feeding guidelines so it lasts longer. Less volume has the same nutrition compared to a lot of other ones. It's doggy delicious.
Hello all, My name is Gigi and I just got my first order of my favorite dog food. I can't tell you the surprise I received when I say mom open the box and discover it was for me. Every morning and evening I can't wait to chow down. Since this was the first order I pray that my mom will order again in the future from Chewy.com
Bodhi, a Maltese/Terrier loves his Kasiks but only if it is hand fed , nugget by nugget! I have tried putting it in separate dish on the floor next to his wet food and also tried mixing it in...No banana! Must be hand fed nugget by nugget while sitting on the chair, next to me, at the table. If I don’t feed it fast enough, he nudges my arm. Yes, I am losing weight....he is my diet master.
