Questions & Answers

My 50 lb. dog is a super picky eater who seems to prefer small bite food and has taken to this particular formula. I'm happy he likes it but I'm noticing he's gotten a bit thicker since starting on it. Could the higher protein content of this food be a factor?

Has anyone had their cat eat this food?? I need something comparable in cat food! She loves it! I have to make sure she isn’t around the bowl when I feed my dog. It’s gotten bad!
Answer by ChewyMar 21, 2020
Zignature does not yet offer recipes suitable for cats, but they're currently developing recipes for our feline friends. Until then, they recommend Fussie Cat, a high quality cat food line made in human-grade plants which is also produced by Pets Global.

Does this product contain organ meats?
Answer by ChewyDec 06, 2021
This recipe does not include any meat by-products. For a complete list of ingredients, click the “Nutritional Info” tab, next to the “Description” tab, just under the product photos when viewed on a desk top. Click the "Nutritional Info" tab, next to the "Q&A" tab, towards the top bar above the product image when viewed on the app.

Does zignature have enough omega oil or should I give her an omega supplement also?
Answer by ChewyDec 23, 2019
This formula contains a minimum content of 4.5% for Omega-6 Fatty Acids, and 2.0% for Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Zignature's Zssential formula is designed to be suitable for dogs of all ages and breeds.

I’ve tried many different brands for my Yorkie. My picky baby will only eat Zignature multi protein small bites food.

Tiniest kibble

I read good reviews so I bought it for my two French Bulldogs. My husband and I laughed when we saw the size of the kibble. I knew it would be small but I did not expect the microscopic size. My pups could not properly chew the food due to the small size and would choke on it after inhaling. This food might be better suited for hamsters.

Zignature superior nutrition

We adopted a rescue Frenchie who had been abandoned and found malnourished and dehydrated. When we adopted her she still had some issues including excessive shedding and breath issues. Since starting her on the zignature and making sure she gets proper nutrition, her coat is growing and beautiful and her breath issues have cleared up.

The best customer service guy and good food

I really didnt have the funds to purchase this food and i called customer service to see if there were any coupon codes as I am out of work. He was amazing because of him i was able to purchase this food and my little dog eats it but only if i add a little something on top. wish I'd gotten the customer service guy's name again.

Excellent dog food!

I have a 7 lb. Shitzu. He suffered with stomach issues since he was a puppy. He had all of the tests ruling out Cushings disease, Addisons disease and also the usual tests. Nothing he ate stayed down until Zignature was introduced!
