What a beautiful spring day to meet At the Fence! I was given several samples of Taste of the Wild dog food, both the dry and canned varieties. Taste of the Wild is a no grain dog food. For the meat source in their foods they use smoked salmon, smoked fowl (duck, chicken, quail and turkey), as well as bison, venison and lamb. They also include vegetables and fruit. You can check their formulas page to find out what is in each type of food. They have a page that describes the different ingredients and what they are used for. So if you want a dog food without all those nasty fillers, you might be interested in trying Taste of the Wild.
Here's just one of the questions from their FAQ's page:
- "Isn't the protein in these foods too high for my dog?
- Absolutely not! There is not any reason to be fearful of higher protein levels in pet foods unless your pet is suffering from very specific kidney or liver diseases. Quality protein actually provides the necessary amino acids for your pet to remain a healthy, lean body condition. Muscles use amino acids as building blocks. When dogs are overfed, they become overweight, just like people. Providing protein that your dog can use to maintain lean body mass will help keep him lean and healthy. You can still overfeed these foods, so if your dog is gaining weight, make sure to reduce the amount that you are feeding.
There is a myth that high protein causes allergies. This is absolutely not true. Proteins themselves are the components of foods that pets may be allergic to. If a pet has a mild allergy to a particular ingredient, it would make sense that the allergy symptoms would become worse when the pet is exposed to higher levels of this ingredient. It is not the protein itself that is the problem, but the specific type of protein."
I have included some pictures of our Schipperke eating the samples we were sent. She really seems to enjoy the food. If you are concerned about what your dog is eating Taste of the Wild is a company you should look into. They do have a locator system so you can find a dealer in your area who carries Taste of the Wild. In our area Tractor Supply and some of the local feed stores carry Taste of the Wild. They do carry cat food also. I have enjoyed sharing Taste of the Wild with my neighbors At the Fence. Taste of the Wild has put together a special give=away pack for the winner of this giveaway. It includes:3 samples of the canned dog food, 3 samples of dry dog food, a sample of Bright Bites, 1 Bright Bites Collar, and a copy of the book "101 Dog Tricks: Step by Step activities to engage, challenge, and bond with your dog" and last, but not least a $30 GC for DoggieFood.com CLOSED
