it's a routine

My GS is almost 12 and considered to be elderly, so I keep him on a steady diet with not much variation. He needs to keep regular since controlling bowel movements is important. He likes the SOLID GOLD and his health is very important to me.

Not better

It’s a shame the old formula is no longer available bc my dog loved it and didn’t flare up her allergies. This new formula has caused my dog diarrhea due to the sudden change since old formula was no longer available and her allergies have been flaring up. Very unhappy dog and dog owner

helped with my dogs digestive issues

My lab had loose stool no matter what she ate. Had stool samples checked several times and results always negative. Vet decided she had irritable bowel disease and put her on prescription diet dog food that didn't help at all. Gave up and cooked food. It worked much better but got expensive to constantly cook food. Then I did research on Chewy with Solid Gold dog food. I found this so bought a small bag and added gradually to cooked food. Saw a change right away. She now has nice solid stool. Such a relief. It took two years and finally found food for her that is good for her digestive system.

CURED my GSD's Chronic Ear, Paw & Skin Problems

What else can I say? My GSD, Rocky, has had chronic ear, paw & skin problems all his life. I have tried him on several different foods, from the most expensive on down, carefully switching him in between and leaving him on them long enough to see they helped a little bit (but not all the way) or they made it worse. I always also used the same food for his treats while doing his 'food trials' just to make sure nothing would taint the trial. My Vet (convinced it was external allergies) gave me Apoquel, Prednisone and ear cleaning and treatment meds for him. I may not be a Vet, but the fact that some foods made it better while others made it worse was telling me to keep trying different foods with different ingredients and, in the end, if none worked, I would follow my Vet's prescriptions. Well, THIS FOOD CURED HIM OF ALL! His ears cleared up and he stopped chewing at his skin and paws! My Vet is very smart and medically competent... but both she and I are glad she was wrong in this case. Hey, she may have just as well been right. But I wasn't going to quit until I tried all other options. It may or may not work for your dog's ear, skin and paw issues, since they all have different chemistries (even within the same breeds) but it's sure worth a try before sentencing them to a life of Apoquel, Prednisone & ear medicines. If you try this food, just remember not to give your dog any other treats or food while doing the trial. If it works, you can do treat trials afterwards to see which ones bring back issues or not. THANK YOU Solid Gold! Your Grain Free Beef, Egg & Pea Dry Dog Food cured my sweet boy. We are grateful and happy beyond words!!!

Amazing Food An Absolute Must Buy

I have tried well over 10 different high protein dog foods for my sporting dogs, including Purina, Eukanuba, Victor, Inukshuk, Country Vet, NutriSource, I could go on, and none of them come close to Solid Gold. If you are going to feed kibble, this is the food for your dogs. My dogs absolutely devour it, and it does exactly what it says it’s going to do: give your dogs the highest quality ingredients, most optimal fuel in the right ratio, the lowest stomach issues, and the best tasting product on the market. From puppy to senior, their entire product line is just superior. it is expensive which is the only drawback, it is almost double the closest competitor so for some it might be a stretch if you have multiple dogs. But if you have dogs that have had hundreds upon hundreds of training hours, hunt tests, field trials, etc. and spend $$$ on their care and maintenance, you can’t afford not to give them the best food out there. Buy this food for your sporting dogs you won’t regret it!

Good for weight gain

We were having troube keeping weight on our elderly large breed dog. I tried several things, increasing the amount of her feed (which she had been on for years), peanut butter kongs, etc. She fell from barely meeting weight to underweight, and the vet told me that as dogs get olderit is harder for them to absorb nutrients. After a google search, I tried this, and she put on 11 pounds in 3 weeks! She has a lot of allergies, and has not had any problem with this as well. I have since put her on a different Solid Gold formula to maintain her weight, that also boasts good absorption, since she definetely does not need to gain more. She loves both Solid Gold options, and gobbles them enthusiasticly. The price is pretty reasonable as well.
