    puppies having loose stool issues

    By on

    I have tries several foods, switched over the 7 day period, pumpkin for stability, and although their stools are better, they are still not formed as they should be. I like the idea of multiple protien sources, I think that is a super idea, GO ZIGNATURE!

    We have recently switched over to Zignature, leaving a very expensive “vet recommended” food behind! My French Bulldogs love it and they look fabulous on it! Great coats - healthy weight - love it! Definitely recommend! We have tried a few different flavors and this one and the kangaroo are their favs!

    Zig is on list

    Zignature is on the list of dog foods for not being healthy for dogs. Until they figure this out I will change the brand even though I don't want to feed grain or wheat due to allergy reasons.

    So excited for these “small bites”

    By on

    My pup has been eating Zignature for almost the entire 8.5 years I’ve had her. She’s on the smaller side (19lb Boston Terrier) and can be a bit picky about how her food is served (diva). When I finally saw Chewy was carrying the little bites, I HAD to order them ASAP. They are awesome! Same quality and amazing ingredients as the original, but in the perfect small bite size for smaller dogs. Going to be the new staple of our order for sure!

    I have 3 Chihuahuas, and they LOVE this dog food! I've tried a few brands, and they weren't satisfied with what I fed them, so, I had heard of this particular product, so we tried it, they loved it, so we're all happy!! Rocky, Dinky, and Prissy thank you!
