My dogs love Instinct canned food. Even the cats will eat it, but that's another story!

Blue Buffalo Lamb and Oatmeal Puppy

I have a lab puppy about 9 mos old. When I got her she was getting a "good" puppy food but she was having trouble with slightly loose stools. Her coat was good.

After having her vetted, she was found to be in good health and clear of parasites. I decided to change food to a more natural food. This food came highly recommended.

Within 3 weeks, the puppy's coat had a beautiful shine, dry skin disappeared, and she "bloomed" into a very healthy active puppy.

Her stools improved almost immediately and has been fine since. It has now been about 5 mos and she is a beautiful puppy and continues to be healthy and active.

I decided on the Lamb and Oatmeal for the qualities of easy to digest and the benefits found for a healthy skin and coat.

Freshpet® Vital™ Chicken, Beef, Salmon & Egg Recipe

by Kate
(LA, USA)


In the last couple of months this brand started to pop up in my local PetCo. The ingredients appear to be healthy and organic.

The product is 100% Grain Free and is refrigerated, so it is not heavily processed. Ingredients also seems to be locally source within PA, USA - which I find it to be a plus.

It smells very fresh and I think its a really unique dog food on the market.

Innova Senior Plus - Anyone have problems?

by Julie S
(USA)

me & my girl

me & my girl

Chloe is my Australian Shepherd Mix. I rescued her from the roadside only minutes after she had been hit by a van. She was a bad mess and underwent surgery for 8 hours.

That was over 10 years ago and she has never really had 'tummy' problems. I had been giving Chloe "Wellness Senior" for a while.

Over the last several months, it appeared she needed a kibble food with more fiber. I changed to "Innova Senior Plus". Now, she is having 'problems'. I took a full month to change over the food. Has this happened to anyone else?

Thank you!

Julie & Chloe

Natura brand pet food & their purchase by Proctor and Gamble

by Stephanie
(USA)

What are everyone's thoughts about Proctor and Gamble purchasing Natura brand pet food?

I was absolutely appalled when I read that information. I am switching pet food brands!

Needless to say, I am very annoyed. I did a lot of what I thought was well-worth research for finding a pet food brand that was safe and healthy for my 3 cats and 3 dogs. Now, I'm having to go through it all over again. I am so frustrated with commercial brands.

I am very tempted to make my pets' food. I'm just afraid that their nutritional needs would not be met in home-made food.

Orijen, Nature's Variety Instinct, Merrick, Party Animal Organics

by Linda M.
(Pittsburgh, PA)

Orijen is a Canadian company. Their foods (dry only, I think) are all grain-free and more expensive than most, but for me that's worth it. They have only one plant and pet food is all they do. I mix & rotate it with Nature's Variety's Instinct, Merrick's and Party Animal organics canned foods, and Nature's Variety's Instinct raw nuggets.

Going grain-free was the best thing I ever did for my Standard Poodle, Mason. He's not in perfect condition, but he's pretty amazingly healthy for a 13-year-old!

It's home made

by Natasha
(Australia)

I buy some beef, kangaroo or chicken pet mince from the shops. I then boil that up with some brown rice and a 1kg bag of frozen veg for her and may chuck in some basil and rosemary to gourmet it up for her.

Stella and Chewys

by Sheryl
(Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.)

I am transitioning my Teacup Yorkie to a raw food diet. I opted to use Stella and Chewys freeze dried chicken patties. My puppy is 3 mths old and only 1 lb. She is CrAzY for this stuff. She just can't get enough.

Nature's Variety raw patty

by Terena Thomas
(Colorado)

Love it. Comes in nice sizes so a vegetarian like me is not grossed out by all the blood and gore. Dogs are healthy weight, no odor, no gas, great teeth, healthy bowels. I add raw rib and knuckle bones every other day as well.

AvoDerm - Woof woof!

AvoDerm - Woof woof!

My Smasher LOVES this stuff. It smells like salmon when I pop the lid off the container I keep it in, and his tail starts wagging like crazy. It is small pellets also, so it has been great for reward training. =)

Solid Gold Wee Bits


I started my then 6-year-old blue Chihuahua on Solid Gold Wee Bits four years ago and ever since, she's quite a different dog than when I adopted her. She was very lethargic and looked almost emaciated.

Now she's energetic (for her) and loves to go on walks and even chases our other dog around the yard!

Recently she did have a couple fleas which are now gone, but I read fleas attack the weak or already unhealthy dogs (cats too surely). Her vet hasn't said she needs a vitamin, but I'm concerned for one because Solid Gold Wee Bits wasn't listed on the top 10 best food list, so is she not getting everything she needs and possibly getting junk/filler instead?? Could she be better off with another food? If so, which? And should she be getting a vitamin??

Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Fish)

by Kortney Campbell
(St. Petersburg, FL, USA)

I am vegan and highly opposed to feeding my dog factory farmed "meat" that is considered too low of a grade for humans. I just switched her from the fish based Longevity line of Blue Buffalo to the Wilderness line. While it slightly bothers be that the line contains chicken meal, the new one is grain free and preservative free with a higher fat & protein content than most dry dog foods. She is extremely active but has had skin issues lately so we have upped her fish/omegas intake in an attempt to help.

She loves the new food & I would consider it top of the line when it comes to dry food. The next best thing would be a completely raw diet.
