About Taste of the Wild Dog Food

The Diet Nature Intended

They might not be wolves or coyotes, but today's domestic dogs share the same ancestral cravings. To satisfy these instinctual appetites, Taste of the Wild wet and dry formulas are made with real, roasted meat plus fruits, vegetables and legumes that are chosen for their specific health benefits.

Energy That Lasts

Taste of the Wild is made with premium meats like wild boar; buffalo; smoked salmon and turkey; and roasted bison, lamb, quail, venison and duck. Every formula is grain-free and provides lasting energy with complex carbs from sweet potatoes and legumes. These highly digestible proteins and fiber-rich carbohydrates will keep your pup feeling full and energized throughout the day.

Immune System Support

Since 70% of your pet's immune system is found in the gut, it makes sense to choose a food that's good for the digestive tract. Taste of the Wild includes prebiotics and species-specific probiotics with bacteria that's naturally found in a dog's GI tract. The proprietary K9 Strain probiotics are added after the kibble is cooked so your dog gets guaranteed live, active cultures that support healthy digestion.

Maximizing Nutrient Absorption

To help your pet's body absorb all of the beneficial minerals in her food, Taste of the Wild recipes have chelated minerals. That means they can easily attach to proteins for absorption during digestion. So your canine pal will enjoy the full value of every carefully selected mineral that these foods have to offer.

Perfectly Balanced Omegas

Taste of the Wild gives your pup just the right dose of omega fatty acids in every bite. Marine-sourced omega-3 comes from salmon oil, smoked salmon or ocean fish meal, or a combination of these ingredients. Omega-6 from plant sources balance out the omega-3s, and they work together to help maintain your pet's skin and coat health and to support overall wellness.

Ingredients for Better Health

The powerful superfood trio of blueberries, raspberries and tomatoes can be found in every delicious recipe, along with their immune-boosting properties.

TOMATOES AND TOMATO POMACE: Help support overall health by providing vitamin C, soluble fiber and rich in concentrated lycopene, a premier antioxidant.

BLUEBERRIES: Antioxidant-rich superfood that's full of flavor and loaded with vitamins C and E, healthy carbs, dietary fiber and manganese.

RASPBERRIES: Delicious berries packed with potassium, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium, and they also provide fiber and antioxidants.

Could you post a picture of the size of the kibbles so I know what the size is?

What is the difference in a small breed formula from TOW besides the bite of the kibble?
Answer by ChewyOct 22, 2017
Small breed formulas sometimes have different protein/fat levels, and the kibble size is the only difference.

Where are ingredients sourced?

Only food I am trying with my new dog

I purchased Appalachian Valley Small Breed Grain-Free Dry Dog Food because it was the only food the rescue would allow me to purchase. I am sure there are other great dog foods, but I want to avoid spending the money and finding out my dog doesn't like it. She is a very picky eater. She is so sensitive to everything that she can tell the difference when the dog food changes with the next order. I put some bullion on the top; she has been eating it ever since.

Wet Contaminated!

Just opened a sealed bag of Taste of the Wild App Valley Small Breed Vennison & Garbanzo Beans to pour into a plastic container I use to transfer dog food to my dog's dish. The "dry" food at the bottom of the bag was wet and disgusting. I do not know if Chewy or the Mfr of TW will make this right but I want other dog owners to know so their dog doesn't get sick. I bought this brand in the past and did not encounted this issue - guess quality went down!

I have been using this brand of food for about 15 years. I truly loved this as did both of my dogs. HOWEVER I recently discovered their have been several lawsuits due to ingredients and LEAD in the food. Unfortunately I do not feel safe using this food any longer as I can't find any information to say if it has been fixed. The suits I have found have been in the last 4 to 5 years and recent. I am now switching to Go! Dog food. I did some research and it is close in price and the ingredients seem to be what I am looking for. Hopefully it will all work out. Take this advice for what you will and do a little research.

Taste of the Wild and Dog Collar Order

My Benji is loving this brand of food. He is allergic to chicken and beef, so this brand with its variety of meats is perfect for him. The collar is very well made and fits him fine. The delivery was good also.

Very wild...

My little Pomeranian took to this food as if he had eaten it before, I do believe he likes it. The morsels are just the right size, so he doesn't struggle to break them down. This is by far the best food for small dogs.

She loves this food

This is by far the best food I’ve had for the breed of dogs I own it small enough, and they seem to like it enough. I also feel comfortable with the fact that the price point is reasonable.

Great for small breeds.

My mom needed a new dry dog food to go along with her dogs wet diet so I recommended this to her, as my much lager dog eats the high prairie formula. Her dog Maggie loves it and can’t get enough! She will be placing future orders with Chewy in the future.
