    PROS: Ingredient list; CONS: Bad Smell and gives loose stools

    By on

    This wet food has great ingredients although I would prefer it had selenium yeast as opposed to sodium selenite (synthetic form), and my dog seems to love it. Unfortunately, it gives him loose stools and it smells like vomit. We have tried both the beef and chicken recipes and the outcome is the same. We will not be purchasing it again.

    My dog loves this canned food. He licks his bowl clean every time. This doesn’t happen with other canned food that I have purchased for him.

    Best Quality, Dogs Love It

    By on

    I used to feed my dogs raw, but Oscar developed diabetes, which meant he had to have a very controlled diet. At first I cooked for them, but it was a lot of work. I started them all on this food and his diabetes has been totally regulated for over two years. Their weight hasn't changed in two years and they are super healthy. I attribute that to the quality of this food!
