They love it!

I recently switched my Chihuahua to the Hearty and Healthy and mixed in the Vitality Veggie Mix as well. She loves it! She doesn't have many teeth left so giving her a good healthy soft diet makes eating easier for her. She is also allergic to Rosemary which is in all dog foods and dog treats, so I was delighted to find a diet that doesn't contain that herb. I found an easy way to chop a baked chicken breast by putting it in the mini processor and freezing portions in snack bags. Soaking the food for 15 minutes twice a day is no big deal, although she goes nuts waiting for it! By the time it is soaked, the little bag of chicken is defrosted and then I add that and since the food is till warm it also heats up the meat. I am also thinking of adding a cooked scrambled egg to the next batch of chopped chicken. And I do add a little bit of oil along with the nutrient supplement once it is hydrated. I added a little bit to my other dog's kibble and now she goes crazy over her food too. Eventually, I will also switch her to the new food as well. Another good thing I noticed is that as much as my Chi loves this food, she doesn't eat her **** anymore! That is a big plus and I can't help but wonder if there isn't something in dog kibble that attracts some dogs to eat their ****. I am hoping this new diet will also correct her dry skin. I figure in about a month's time I will know just how good this new diet is for her. And it is the first food that I have switched her too with no upset tummy during the transition! So mommy and doggies are very happy with this food! How do you add a photo of your dog here?

Best food for my dogs

Been feeding my dogs this for over 3 years and they love it. They gobble it all up.

Content fine. Gets glompy

I have no doubt about the quality. The grains really seem to soak up all the water so it gets glompy when served. Was this way through all servings made with the 6 lb bag. I much prefer the grain free.

I have 2 dogs on a low protein, low carb diet. That leaves vegetables, pretty much, and my one terrier is a protein only Pup. I have had a difficult time finding healthy food that is low protein that she is willing to eat. This she loves and when I add just a little chicken to wet her appetite she doesn't stop eating until the Noel is empty! Great stuff, I definitely recommend it!
