    It looks pretty good but let's get @Lindathedogsmaid to give us an answer. I think this is one of the newer foods her and I were discussing because I see it has enzymes/probiotics in it.

    I was gonna say it looks good to me but I am bad at knowing dog foods. I see it has garlic tho which is up in the air for how bad it is but I do think it is the actual bulb of raw garlic that is bad, not so much the powder form.

    The ingredients look pretty good and according to this review of the food and it's ingredients, the only "controversial" contents are the garlic (is it good for dogs and does it matter in such a limited quantity?) and tomato pomace (considered by some to be a cheap filler) but it looks pretty solid. You could definitely be feeding a heck of a lot worse! Let us know how it goes!

    let me check this out and find out exactly where the ingredients come form, and if they are natural or man made. and see if it is even on the radar yet, its a new one on me, and until they have a few reviews, and answer some questions on cooking time and temp. I would not feed it,there are so many new companies that are just old ones with new names that are trying to loose the old reputations, they put a lovely name on it and it sounds healthy and natural. give me over the weekend to do some research, I am gone all day tomorrow. thx

    no where on the guaranteed analysis does it say in writing that these ***Pre and Pro bitoics are in the food.**
    ((Dried Lactobacillus Plantarum, Enterococcus Faecium, Lactobacillus Casei, Lactobacillus Acidophilus ))Fermentation Products.
    and as long as they add a trace, they can say it is in there, and is it live or not. lets find out before we feed it to our dogs,
    you can stay with Fromm, or great4 life, they do guarantee in writing that the pre and pro biotics ar in the food and tell you exactly how much, and it is a live culture.

    also the statement about what the dogs ancestors ate, have nothing to do with what today's dogs need. we have bred them totally out of the wolf like state they were once in. this is a advertising ploy.!!

    I will call and talk to the manufacturer, and ask, what is the source of omega 3 and 6, is it flax seed or fish?
    fish is th eonly souce to be completely absorbed by dogs easily, where does the L-carnitine come from.
    are these vitamins, man made, if not form what source. and just what makes the food supposidly more digestible? if they do not state in writing, that the pre and pro bitotics are there, and in what quantity, --there will not be enough to aid in digestion, or boost the immune system. how hot is the food cooked and for how long. to long and it will actually do harm. good food companies do not hesitate telling us owners these questions.

    ask this of the DOG FOOD ADVISER... who is paying for this page or results.
    try the truth about pet foods. she solely survives on our membership monies of $18.00 per year for concerned pet owners. no money comes from any pet food company. to do any research or statements

    No-- thank you for caring enough to ask!! I am just passionate about my dogs food. and because Bulldogs have --WAY DIFFERENT NEEDS THAN ANY OTHER BREED__-- I have to also use the past 15 to 20 yrs of Bulldog rescue peoples experiences. plus my own 10 yrs.
    and I am a bad person to sell a car to. I will pick it apart until I know which bolt was made where.!!
    and use any resource to find out.
    the marketing and merchandising are what I went to school for,so I know how this sales job works. and there are a billion ways to hide the truth.and still say something positive. the black bold type of words, say just as much as the pale gray printed words. the bold is the only type of warning we get---can you believe it ?? I will get back to all after the weekend .
