This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing dogs over one year old as puppies and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirement.

    Food allergies

    By Zooey on Oct 18, 2021

    Our dog has severe food allergies to all things beef, chicken, duck etc. Only really able to eat fish and very limited ingredients. We have fed her Wellness foods for awhile now and she suddenly been having allergies to the whitefish in her regular Wellness food. So far so good with this food. Maybe Salmon is going to do the trick. So glad there are options that are very limited on ingredients for dogs like ours.

    My Dog Hates This

    By Tina on Aug 30, 2021

    Bought this because it apparently is the replacement for previous food with like ingredients. To accommodate the company they offer this with large kibble & are marketing it “for all dogs”. My small dog can’t eat it & has not eaten in 2 days. Thank you Chewy!!

    Perfect for my dog

    By Waffs on Apr 14, 2021

    This food is a perfect fit for my doggie. He has had issues with foods that contain chicken, in the past. With this food having limited ingredients, it was definitely the right choice. Chewy is also the best company to order from, never a problems and great service.

    Great! For poultry free, senior, high protein

    By KitandOsiris on Dec 25, 2020

    Couldn't be happier, after roughly a month on this brand and my 11 year old Australian Shepherd, who has moderate allergies and is simply aging can finally NOT scratch himself to death or pulling out his coat. Plus it's my picky eaters favorite. Fish :)

    Chicken Free, Grain free, Finally!

    By CherSpurs on Oct 25, 2020

    My pit mix has had terrible allergies and was extremely stinky & yeasty. We narrowed it down to chicken or grain since we fed her chicken and rice and she broke out in hot spots. So, we decided to just cut chicken and grain from her food. We have tried other chicken free and grain free but she would lose interest and not eat after a few days of the complete switch over of food. We’re on our 2nd 4lb bag and so far she loves it! Hoping to see more positive results with her allergies.

    My 12 year old loves it

    By Tracy1421 on Feb 21, 2020

    Lola my dog who is 12 years old was taken to the vet for her yearly exam and the vet who she sees is believes in somewhat holistic ways. He advised me that the dog food I was given my baby wasn't good. I was told no potato, grain free, and high protein. Is what extremely hard to find one that would be good for my Lola. So I bought a small bag to start and she loved it. And now that I know chewy has it I will be a customer.
