  1. Helina Luciano

    My older dog was getting a lot of rashes, after 2800 dollars in vet bills, I searched for a clean brand and this is what I got recommendations for in a per forum.
    I started my pet on this formula 3 months ago and her skin has improved and she seems less in pain. I am also giving her CBD oil to help with joint pain.

    The food is small and can be easily consumed by all sizes of dogs. It has a mild smell and my dog likes the taste.

  2. Jennifer Schevers

    My dog has been on this food for a little over a year now and her coat has never looked or felt better. She used to also suffer GI issues and this food has completely resolved her issues! So happy they have this lower calorie formula too!

  3. Nakayln White

    I haven’t tasted it personally, but gauging from my dogs devouring at dinner I believe this is likely the yummiest sensitive tummy solution he’s had since developing his pancreatic issues, because he ate a whole bowl without me tricking him with added flavors, and didn’t do that peckish back and for for eternity thing he does when he is literally only eating out of necessity, and hating each bite. His response, combined with my knowledge of the high quality ingrediedients and unparralled nutritional delivery make this 5 of 5 stars and a strong recommend! Thanks!

  4. Nicole Ferrari

    This food is great. I just adopted a middle aged dog who was a bit overweight and he took to this food immediately. Since adopting him and giving him a few walks a day he’s started to shed some pounds!

  5. Kayleigh Denner

    Started off by slowly mixing in the new food with his old food, and the transition went so smoothly. What I love about this food is it’s variety of good for them ingredients, especially pumpkin!

  6. Kristyn Hernandez

    My three-year-old Labradoodle absolutely loved this dog food as soon as I poured it. I slowly transitioned it into her food as a topper and she was more excited about the Special Needs food than the previous one I laid it on top of. I am so happy that she loves it because it has such clean and healthy ingredients. I feel like she has more energy and has softer fur. Most importantly, she did not have any sensitivities to it and I would definitely recommend it to others.

  7. Sarah St.Clair

    I purchased this for a 9 year old dog. The ingredients are healthy and will help her in her elder years. It smells appetizing, and she ate the entire serving in her bowl immediately! It seems to have helped with her digestion issues as well.

  8. Tara Ruggieri

    I got this especially for my Mom’s ancient chiuhuahua. No one even knows how old she really is. She’s blind in one eye and has allergies to standard brands, so we thought we would try this. It’s been great. Not sure if she has a little spring in her step that wasn’t there a few weeks ago but we wanted to give her the best<3 and she likes it!

  9. Annie Lei

    This is a great alternative to other special needs dog foods out there. I bought this for an older overweight mini pinscher and he loves it. Unlike other dog foods out there, this is alkaline and helps with digestive issues. He also loves the quality ingredients. Highly recommend!

  10. Stella Guerrero

    I got this for my dog with, let’s say a “sensitive stomach” that affects an entire room. She loves it, it has more than enough protein and other essentials, and we can actually hear (and more importantly, smell.. ew lol) the difference in her rumbly tummy.

  11. Leticia Ortiz

    My dog is loving this! He is usually picky about food. I have also noticed that he has a pep in his step–like more energy!

  12. Amanda Groth

    My dog absolutely loves this and she is very picky in general. Just after a week she’s taking to this very well and her coat is continuing to be healthy. Overall great product.
