I guess tonight is pet night At the Fence. I did a post awhile back on Taste of the Wild, but they recently launched new dog and cat food formulas and asked if I would do a new review. Plus a great giveaway!
Sierra Mountain Canine-with roasted lamb and sweet potatoes, is a limited ingredient diet with lamb as the only protein source. It contains taurine to protect heart health and has lower protein and fat than the Taste of the Wild High Prairie and Wetlands formula, which may be a better option if dog owners are looking for a diet in lower fat or calories.
Canyon River Feline contains only fish protein with trout, salmon and sweet potatoes for a more limited ingredient profile, which may be a better choice for sensitive cats. Canyon River Feline is also a good choice for those cats who need a less-rich diet, as it has lower protein and fat than the
We personally have two small dogs. One has a problem keeping weight on and the other has a problem not getting too overweight. (And yes, we feed them separately, so it is not due to one not sharing!) This formula would probably be good for her!
Taste of the Wild is a grain-free diet for your pets. It is designed for all life stages and contains fruits and vegetables along with antioxidents. Their website has a locator where you can find a retailer near you who carries Taste of the Wild. We have 2 about 25 miles away.
From Taste of the Wild:
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."
The dog give-away includes three sample bags of the new dry formula; six samples of Bright Bites Daily Dental Treats (need to know the size of the dog); $30 gift card to DoggyFood.com and a set of Fold-N-Go Port-A-Bowls.
Cat owners can get three sample bags of the new dry formula, a $30 gift card to HarlosHealthypets.com and a Bergan TurboScratcher Cat Toy.
