Questions & Answers

33 Customer Questions

Is this new “ancient” line chelated like the other Taste of the Wild foods? Is the salmon farmed or fished? Is it tested for mercury? Why is it smoked, is that nutritionally beneficial or just for taste? Thank you!
Answer by ChewyOct 24, 2019
This formula uses chelated minerals. Taste of the Wild uses a blend of wild caught and farmed salmon to promote sustainable fishing. All of the fish that are used in their foods are low mercury species.They utilize a rotisserie process to add flavor.

I realize this product contains grains, but is it wheat free?
Answer by ChewyNov 28, 2019
This food is made in the USA with ingredients from trusted and sustainable sources around the world and is completely free from corn, wheat, filler, and artificial flavors, colors and preservatives.

How many cups in the 28 pound bag?
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2019
The 5 pound bag will contain about 20 cups of dry dog food, the 14 pound bag will contain approximately 56 cups of kibble, and the 28 pound bag contains approximately 112 cups of kibble.

Answer by ChewyNov 04, 2019
Taste of the Wild formulates their recipes for a digestibility of 86%-88% for all varieties.

Tough to convince our dog to eat

We got our dog a few months ago, and have been trying different foods to figure out what works best for him (doing a 10-day transition between newfoods). We won't be continuing with this one, as it seems our dog farts more with this food. We also had a bear of a time convincing him to eat this! We eventually figured out that adding a bit of water to the bowl worked like a charm, so we think it may be too hard on his teeth. The vet has said his teeth are good, and we haven't had this issue with other foods. Otherwise, our dog seems like he has a good amount of energy and doesn't mind eating it with the water added.

Finally a great food

Our dog is allergic to chicken. Every kind of chicken. And we looked everywhere for a food that does not contain even an ounce chicken, that doesn't cost my entire paycheck, and the company didn't have recalls and bad quality. When I thought I wouldn't find one. I ran across "Taste of the wild" . She loves fish so we went with that flavor . She LOVES it. We are still in the process of introducing it to her. But now she picks out the old food and leaves it in the floor just to eat the new food. And not one allergic reaction. I am so happy. Please keep in mind some flavors of this brand have chicken product in them. They have this flavor and one other that doesn't. Please check ingredients. But if you want good ingredients, great quality, and decent price. Give it a go.

Mixed results

This rating is the average of a 5 and a 1. The 5: All 3 dogs LOVED it and ate it all up. I didn't even need to doctor it up for my picky eater to finish it. It is also chicken free, which is nice for my allergic to life AmBull. 5*! The 1: The aftermath is pretty bad. 3 of 3 tummies were upset. One human nose was very upset with all the rancid farting and squishy soft poops. I transitioned from the previous food as recommended but it didn't help. I switched them back to the old food with no transition it was so bad, and they are all doing much better. It wasn't a great fit for us, but they did like it so maybe if your dog will have better luck?

Not for Puppy :/

Bought this bag of food for my new puppy after reading it was for all stages of life. After receiving realized it is very large kibble only meant for adult dogs. I wish this would be better advertised that it is not meant for puppies. I really liked the ingredients but upset that Im out $60 because he wont be able to start eating this until 1 year old.

Was not meant for us

I have 1 year pup with the great appetite I wanted to try this food for his health benefits since it’s has wild fish in it. Unfortunately, there is something in this product that turns him off and he has no desire to eat. I still have old bag different brand he eats but again he refuses even to try this. So, I will be donating this bag to the dog rescue. I think it would be helpful if Chewy could sell one meal bag as sample at affordable price to see if dog will love the product or not instead of dealing with the big bag return.

Usually Great

Been using this for almost two years, never a problem, chewy is great. The last two bags have had a very strange smell. Usually it is like the fish it is made with. The last two have had a strong “horse barn” like odor. Threw them out. Disappointing as this is usually great food.

King loves it!!

Hi - I’ve been using Taste of the Wild for a little over a year now. King loves it. The salmon flavor is great. He seems to have a sensitive stomach so my dgt recommended this brand and it’s been great. It is pricey, compared to Pedigree, however it is a healthier option for King & he doesn’t get sick every day like he use to.

so far so good..

We were using the grain-free version of this food and she had loose stools. We started mixing in this grain inclusive version and the stools firmed right up! Gonna keep mixing until we get her on this completely, hopefully it keeps going well!

Same Brand, but different Food

Due to our Pups (Piper) Tummy Issues, we changed her food from Pacific Steam to Ancient Stream to add more Fiber to her Diet. We have also added Pumpkin Puree to her Lunchtime feeding. So far so good. Keep your fingers crossed for us all!
