We couldn't figure out what was making my little 11 year old Maltese sick hard body and very sick couldnt breathe i realized it was this food for some reason they put sage in it and I am allergic to sage and I think my dog is allergic to sage She almost stopped breathing a number of times and after we got through the 6 cans of a very little amount periodically for two Maltese this was not her main food Made her deathly sick and she couldn't breathe My other little Maltese ate it also didn't affect her at all just FYI small amounts To be sure the dogs can tolerate it I don't think they'd hunt for sage
I just switched over to Wellness. She loves this food. It's almost like she's getting a treat! Very happy with the Turkey Stew...Wish there were a few more veggies, but still a winner!!!
Dog used to love this and it had a better smell, now 4+ cases smell different and the meat chunks are larger. We will no longer buy!
Most Wellness 95% meats and this Turkey stew along with controlled amounts of a diabetic dry food helps keep his glucose in better control. I noted "most" meats of Wellness 95% because for some reason, the beef causes higher glucose readings, (maybe it's the higher amounts of bone/tendon white pieces in the beef, I made sure I didn't have the beef w/carrots, carrots would add more natural sugar). I can pick out most of the carrots in the turkey stew and the barley has no effect. A veternarian recommended diabetic wet food is rarely available and very high in price and shipping. The dry contains "corn" which is sugary, but my veternarian responded, they need some carbs. I am now able to put weight on him with Wellness 95% meats. If Wellness brings out a diabetic dry food, I'll grab it too.
My picky Chihuahuas love this food. They eat it down almost in one bite even though they can be picky they've both turned into Chow hounds. It's great food and good for them, they were always thirsty now they don't have to drink as much because there's more moisture in the food. My babies are happy now.
Looks and smells good enough to eat. They are lucky dogs. I mix this with raw grass-fed beef, sardines and a very little kibble.
My chi has gotten picky over the years (spoiled? Nooooooo! Ha!), but she seemed to like the Wellness kibble I was feeding her, so I decided to give their canned food a try. The meat chunks are fairly large for a tiny mouth, so I have to cut them up, which is annoying, but fine. She had a rough transition to this food as well, and now that we're a few cans in to the case, it's clearly not a transitional thing and more of a we need to only give her a small amount. Biggest thing is though, she just doesn't seem to love it. She was doing happy dances when it was just the Stella and Chewy nuggets and kibble (our vet doesn't like raw food so we were trying to switch her out), but as soon as we started adding this canned food to the mix, she stares at us a bit before getting into her bowl. For us, this unfortunately was not a win on many levels. We tried!
I have a JRT who is pushing 19 and is still full of vitality albeit blind. She has eaten Canidae small breed for the last three years. They discontinued the line. Absolutely nothing out there is like the Canidae she ate. I've spent hundreds on canned food trying to find one she'd eat; fortunately, I have another dog who is more than happy to eat what she rejects. I bought this line in three varieties, thinking she'd go for the beef, because that's what she likes. She hates chicken and anything with fish. I've never seen turkey before. She loves this, but there is a caveat...the gravy is too rich and she will throw it up. I have to rinse this food before I feed it to her and chop it up a bit. She inhales it. I cried for weeks when we were whittling down to the last of the Canidae. I was afraid I'd have to put a dog down because she couldn't accept a new food. Texturally, this line is like a firm pate that is compressed into shape. The shapes are bigger than she can stomach, because she doesn't chew, so I chop it up after I rinse it.
Both my dogs reacted poorly to this canned food being added to their dry food. I only added 4 oz to one dog's food and one chunk to the other to avoid jealousy. Maybe it wasn't the food but that was the only life variable.
I have recently made the change to Wellness Stew, after years using another product. The latter had good quality at first but there had been a distinct decline over the past 6 months. The cans were not full, and carried almost a quarter gravy, rather than meat. Very few vegetables. Also, constant supply problems. Wellness stews are very high quality, a lot of meat and vegetables, and for a few extra dollars, is a much superior product. Well worth it.
