    I have my mastiffs and pitty on this food and they do amazing on it! I love that it’s nutrient dense and they require less on it than other brands but are still getting the nutrition they need!
    Thank you!!

    Rating 4/5 stars for two reasons, otherwise it would be 5/5. My dog in the first few days acted VERY hungry because we went from 2/3 a cup a day to 1/3 a day with this food. He is now used to the portions so that is not as much an issue anymore (I increased his ration to 1/2 cup a day on this food). Lastly, his poops seem to be extremely dry, as if he needs to double his water intake for normal poops again; ofcourse we cant just tell our dogs to drink more!

    Otherwise this food is amazing 🙂 My dog gets VERY picky and only has a few bites, then picks at his food for over a day (even on acana, boreal, etc). This food he eats in one sitting within 5 minutes! AMAZING!

    I have been using this food for about 4 years now. My 90 Lab requires only 2 cups per day of this food. Prior to using this food, he had very runny poops. We tried everything – grain free, limited ingredients, all different brands – this is the only food that keeps him “normal”. I agree with the comment that dogs need a lot of water with this food, but that is fine! Great food.

    We tested this flavor FirstMate, Acana lamb, Open Nature lamb, and Earthborn Holistics and our dog chose this one everytime. He still liked the others, but definitely chose this one.

    My Jack Russell loves this food! He was having lots of bowel issues, so the vet had him on prescription gastroenteritis canned food, but it wasn’t helping. Gradually switched him over to Firstmate Lamb and Oats and saw improvement from the very first day! It’s been months now and not one episode of diarrhea. Not sure I agree with the feeding guidelines though. He eats double what the chart shows and maintains his weight perfectly.

    After hearing all the news that a grain free diet was suspected of causing cardiomyopathy I had my golden retriever tested for his taurine levels. He was on a grain free Acana formula and his levels came back critically low with no obvious outward symptoms. His heart tested fine so it was caught in time but we had to change his food and add in a taurine supplement. it was almost impossible to find a food that does not have the suspected ingredients of peas and legumes and he’s also allergic to chicken so I was so glad to find this food that was a quality formula and met all these needs! We are still waiting for final taurine results but expect with the supplement plus the food which has it in it he should be back to normal!

    Warning: this review talks about poop…for those who are squeamish and don’t check their pooches poo it might be a bit gross.
    Our family adopted a border collie/blue heeler mix at six weeks old. His mother had abandoned him, which is why we took him in so early. He is now an 8 week busy fluff ball who has been suffering from loose to watery stools since we brought him home. Our vet suggested trying different foods, but none of those worked. She then had us put him on a chicken and rice diet. Even that didn’t help. I finally went to our local feed store to ask their advise. They gave me several sample bags of this food and told me to come back if that didn’t work, as they have several others that might work. The person at the store thought it might the type of grain and/or the chicken that was causing the issue. Well, I’m happy to say we finally had pudding texture the first day and normal poops the second! He’s now on a set potty schedule since his food isn’t running through him at the speed of light!
    He is just under 4lbs and seems to do best at a bit over 3/4c, which is the recommendation for a 5lb pup his age. I think he may need a higher amount since he’s still pretty think from the bowel issues. I’m so glad I went there and so very grateful they recommend this food! It’s been a life saver for our whole family. We will definitely be feeding him this brand for life!

    3/5 (SO FAR) I have a senior (~12 ish) yellow lab named Cheyenne that we have had for a couple of years. We wanted to switch her food from Nutro because we noticed that they do not ethically source their ingredients. We have slowly incorporated this food into her diet for about a week with some canned pumpkin and her poop is SO SOFT and has not firmed up. She is pooping constantly so we will be looking into finding out how else we can remedy this. I hope that this food works out because it is nutrient dense and far cheaper than the Nutro but we need her poops to be regular.

    My vet has recently suggested that his clients switch to dog food with grain. However, given that most manufacturers are currently selling “grain free” recipes WITH potatoes/peas/legumes, it’s not easy to find. My local Pet Food Express actually recommended this particular brand. All three of my dogs love both the lamb and chicken formulas – but they probably love the lamb one the most. Since the fat content is on the low side, people might consider adding some salmon oil for additional omega 3.

    One 65 lb Chow Chow and 2 eight pound chihuahuas LOVE the FREE RANGE LAMB and small bite also. They cannot wait to eat it and run to their food like no other. LOVE IT.
