Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Yorkie and Cockapoo Love this My two dogs have been eating this for over a year now after the manufacturer of their previous brand went out of business. They are thriving well, their coats look great, and they digest it well. At 2 and 3 years of age, they will stay on this brand forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Beagle's Choice We've been feeding our beagle Appalachian Valley™ Small Breed Canine Formula with Venison & Garbanzo Beans from the day our beagle joined our family. His former home raised him on the formula, and now at 16 months old he still runs with excitement to his bowl at meal time. High marks for the Pine Forest® Canine Formula with Venison & Legumes formula, as well. Beagle approved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing food We have an 8 lb maltese who only has 4 teeth (her canines). This is the only food she enjoys and can eat without any issues to her gums, or stomach. The kibbles are the perfect size for her, and the blend of food makes her hair soft and shiny.

Can you help me with how to do the transition from our current dog food to Taste of the wild Appalachian small breed? Thank you so much!

Asked by: Bonnie
Hi, Bonnie. We recommend a gradual transition between formulas over a period of 7 to 10 days. This is in case your pet has a sensitive stomach. You can do this by starting with 25% of the recommended feeding portion of the Appalachian Valley formula mixed with 75% of the recommended portion of the current formula for 2-3 days, then 50% of each for 2-3 days, and then 75% of the Appalachian Valley formula with 25% of the current formula for 2-3 days before feeding just the Appalachian Valley formula food.

We're thinking of switching our dog to your food. I see you have the Small Breed formula. However I was wondering if you have a Small Breed formula for Seniors (dog 8+)?

Asked by: Jen2016
Jen2016, Appalachian Valley Small Breed Formula is a maintenance diet appropriate for an older dog.

Can you give salt content? I have a dog with a heart murmur and needs low sodium food. Or would any of your dry dog foods qualify as low sodium?

Asked by: julie2
The sodium content of Appalachian Valley is 0.40% as fed. Several of our other formulas have lower sodium content than this one, however, we do not have any sodium-restricted diets.

Can I give this specific formula (small breed) to my 2.5lb maltese 12 week old puppy? Even tho this is not stated to be for puppies.

Asked by: Nikki
Hi, Nikki. The Appalachian Valley Small Breed Canine Formula is a great choice after your Maltese is 10-12 months old. Prior to this age, we recommend either of our puppy formulas – High Prairie Puppy or Pacific Stream Puppy. Our puppy formulas provide excellent nutrition for puppies of all sizes and breeds, and have special features to help support optimal health and well-being for growing puppies. Plus, the kibble is smaller in size, making it easier for puppies to chew and digest.

We have a 9yr old American Straffshire Terrier with real flatulence problems. Our daughter uses your SW Canyon kibbles for her dog and she does great. Can you recommend one of your dry dog formulas for our dog?

Asked by: Barbara13
Hi, Barbara. Thanks for your question. Flatulence in dogs may be associated with both dietary and non-dietary causes. Dietary causes are typically associated with the amount and type of carbohydrates and dietary fiber in a formula. Individual dogs react differently to these variables, so some dogs may have flatulence problems on a certain diet while others do not. Non-dietary causes are the result of how much air dogs swallow. For instance, dogs that tend to eat very quickly tend to ingest a lot of air with their food. We have many formulas that would be appropriate for a Staffordshire terrier; Southwest Canyon Canine Formula would be a good choice, or if your dog is becoming less active or overweight with age, you might consider Sierra Mountain Canine Formula. All of our formulas include patented probiotics to promote good digestive health. Note that when you transition between formulas, it may to take several weeks of feeding the new diet before you notice a significant decrease in the amount of flatulence. We encourage you to give one of our product specialists a call at 1-800-342-4808 so we can find out more about your American Staffordshire Terrier and help you find the right formula.
