Rated 2 out of 5 by from Something has changed in your food Hello. I have had both my dogs on this food since they were born and they were fed this at the breeder. My older dog is suddenly experiencing symptoms of irritable bowl disease with vomiting and diarrhea coming out of no where that takes weeks to get better. She has been tested two and three times for everything under the sun. I feel like you guys have changed ingredients in your food within the last year and it is causing issues with her now. She doesn't "get into" stuff … no table scraps and her "cookies" are simply dog food kibbles. Have you changed the recipe on your foods? It seems that others have noticed a change as well based on reviews of other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teddy Tested & Approved!!! I have such a picky dog. I got him from a rescue over 5 years ago and brought home several high quality options for him. Teddy is an obstinant Lhasa and went on hunger strike until appropriate provisions were secured for him. He approves this formula and the Wetlands. Even when I home cook for him, he appears to consider that a nice snack and heads to his bowl for his real meal. Additionally, upon switching I noticed that within a few weeks his skin issues cleared up as well as his gastro intestinal problems. I am quite pleased. Thank you for making such a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have 3 high energy dogs who thrive on this Have 2 German Shorthair Pointers and an all American mutt who eaten this for 6 years now. Constantly on go hunting, camping off leash running. Have never had any digestive problems with any of them. The GSPs during hunting season put in long days in all kinds of weather and their energy level is great. Our mixed breed runs 4-5 miles daily with my wife and keeps up great During the Montana winter when they don't get as much activity I know this high quality food contributes to keeping their weight stable. Highly recommend if you have sporting dogs or active lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trusted Brand As a show/breeder of Jack Russell terriers, it was important for me to find a high quality dry dog food that would work for my terriers. I have been feeding Taste of the Wild High Prairie for years and my dogs thrive on it. It’s a well balanced food, I love the fact that purified water is used and taurine is added. Hard to find a brand that hasn’t been recalled at some time, but TOTW is one of the few. I recommend it to all our puppy buyers and put a bag of the puppy version in all our puppy packages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dogs LOVE the High Prairie Formula ! I started buying this product many years ago and my dogs ALL absolutely love it ! All of them have lived to be between 14 and 19 years old ! Through all the years of buying this product NOT ONE RECALL or the dreaded reports of any illness or deaths from this product, while I watched brand after brand of others get recalled. There are no grains and my dogs are all energetic, at a great weight and their coats are shining. I would NEVER use any other dry dog food because I love my dogs. To me they are family members!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Lab Retriever loves it! My Lab Retriever became less interested on the garbage... I mean "science diet" food that was "specifically" for certain dog breeds (ex. Labs, German Shepard , golden retrievers etc). We had to mix in treats for him to eat. I researched and found out that ingredients make a HUGE difference. Just like we are meant to be vegans , dogs are meant to have a taste of the wild. So I decided to give my dog a taste of the wild and.... He loved it! So now he loves eating! And is healthy , happy and looks great! So thanks for the quality ingredients. The only thing is, I'd love to see a little less carb sources but still all GREAT choice of food for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food for a Great Price! We have been feeding our dogs Taste of the Wild dog food for years! We began trying TOTW when we discovered that our puggle had severe food allergies. Taste of the Wild was the first food we found that not only didn't cause an allergic reaction, but that she also loved eating. Feeding our dogs Taste of the Wild has been an amazing experience and we recommend it to anyone we meet who has a dog, especially if their dog has gluten allergies like our dog does. Our dogs favorite flavors are the High Prarie, Pacific Salmon, and Southwest Canyon. We rotate between those flavors, or mix them together to give our dogs some variety.

Is there any shellfish in the high prairie formula?  I see there are ocean fish but I was wondering if there is any shellfish.   I am allergic to that.  

Asked by: Barbara
Hello, Barbara! Shellfish is not an ingredient in our High Prairie Canine Recipe. Our fish meal is small ocean fish, such as Menhaden whitefish, cooked and ground to a fine consistency. If you’re looking for a recipe without ocean fish meal, our Sierra Mountain Canine Recipe would be a great option.

My cats have taken to eating my dog's High Prairie, is this a problem? Their regular formula is the Venison and Salmon, but it'd be convenient to switch to High Prairie for all of my animals.

Asked by: mherodev
Hello, we find many cats love our dog food and vise versa. While an occasional bite of dog food will not hurt your cat, feeding it regularly can be quite detrimental to your cat’s health. This is because dogs and cats do not have the same requirements for nutrients like protein and amino acids. More importantly, taurine supplementation is essential for cats, but not required for dogs, therefore our dog formulas do not contain an adequate amount taurine for your cat. Because of this, we recommend you only feed a cat formula to your cat. If you have any additional questions, please give us a call at 1-800-342-4808.

Why do you no longer make 30 lb bags?

Asked by: FranWeird87
Hello and thank you for reaching out. Previously we offered three recipes in 5-, 14- and 28-pound bags, while eight recipes, including Pacific Stream Canine Recipe were sold in 5-, 15- and 30-pound bags. We have updated all TOTW recipes to 5-, 14- and 28-pound bags. Unfortunately, TOTW and many others in the industry are faced with the reality of increased costs of raw ingredients and transportation. So TOTW has adjusted the size of those select recipe bags without adjusting the price. The Taste of the Wild family will continue to look for ways to provide high-quality, yet affordable pet food options to pet parents.

What would be a good food for a boxer/lab mix with bad joints and arthritis?

Asked by: Bran
For dogs with arthritis, it is very important to maintain optimal lean body weight. High Prairie is higher in calories and fat than many of our other formulas. You might want to consider a lower calorie formula such as Sierra Mountain. If your dog is overweight, we recommend working with your veterinarian to initiate a weight reduction plan.

Is a 5month puppy ok to eat the adult high prairie food?

Asked by: Aug1234
Hello and thanks for reaching out! As a general guide, we recommend transitioning puppies to adult food at about 10–12 months of age. For large breed dogs, between 12–18 months of age is a good time to make the transition to adult food. In the meantime, we recommend feeding a puppy-specific or all life stages recipe. Our puppy recipes include High Prairie Puppy and Pacific Stream Puppy, while our all life stages recipes include: Pine Forest Canine, Southwest Canyon Canine and Sierra Mountain Canine. The all life stages recipes are developed to meet the nutritional needs of dogs at all ages, from puppy to senior. Our puppy-specific recipes fall under the all life stages category as well, but have smaller kibbles. Both our puppy and all life stages recipes include specific nutrients, like added DHA that aids in brain and eye development, to help your puppy grow to their full potential. If you have any further questions or would like a recipe recommendation, please contact us by visiting our website https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/#contact-us.

Asked by: Bulliemama
Hello. You can continue to feed your English Bulldog High Prairie Puppy because it an "all life stages" food appropriate for female dogs regardless of their heat cycle. The High Prairie Canine formula would also be a good choice; it is slightly higher in protein, fat and calories than the puppy formula.

I've been reading about zero grains foods and how some dogs have heart problems because of them, specifically ones that contain peas. It appears that taurine supplementation can reverse these problems. Do your foods have enough taurine added for dogs?

Asked by: Marie
Hi, Marie! Thanks for reaching out. Normally, dogs are able to synthesize taurine and do not require it in their diets. Because the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) does not provide recommendations for the amount of taurine in the food, we do not measure the amount in our formulas. However, they do require a minimum of 0.65% methionine-cystine (the necessary amino acid precursors for taurine synthesis) for adult dog maintenance formulas. This formula contains 1.19% methionine-cystine on an as-fed basis.

My smelly dog has always eaten High Prairie--as puppy & adult. Recently I adopted a new puppy & gradually transitioned her to High Prairie. Almost immediately her fur scent changed to match my adult dog's musky smell. Should I try another flavor to fix?

Asked by: ctevers
Hello, thanks for reaching out. There are many factors the can affect the way a dog smells; for instance, some breeds have a more noticeable odor than others and puppies almost always have less odor than adult dogs. Natural changes in a dog's odor occur as they mature. When and if a “musky” smell is detected, the anal glands/sacs are often the cause. They are the “marking” glands in the area of the anus which release an unpleasant odor and oily secretion. In addition, ear, skin and mouth infections can also cause foul odors. While food can affect the way a dog smells, we do not believe that is this case based on your description. However, if you’d like to talk with our product specialists or if you’d like to try a different recipe to rule out the formula as the cause, we’d be happy discuss and/or offer other formula recommendations. Feel free to give us a call at 1-800-342-4808. Please note, if your puppy is less than a year old, we do recommend switching her to one of our puppy formulas or an all life stages formula as High Prairie Canine Formula is a maintenance formula and does not meet the nutritional needs for puppies. Listed below are our puppy formulas and all life stages formulas: - High Prairie Puppy with Roasted Bison & Roasted Venison - Pacific Stream Puppy with Smoked Salmon - Pine Forest Canine with Venison & Legumes - Southwest Canyon Canine with Wild Boar - Sierra Mountain Canine with Roasted Lamb

i am currently feeding my dog this recipe. I just found out he is allergic to chicken and salmon. Do you make any foods without these ingredients?

Asked by: Butcher
Hello, our High Prairie Canine contains contain chicken as a protein source. We recommend considering our Sierra Mountain formula, as it is a more limited protein source diet (lamb and egg proteins) and works well for many dogs with allergies. Many of our formulas contain salmon oil, however the oil does not contain salmon protein and is not a typical food allergen.

Asked by: Brian1
Hello, Brian. Most of the ingredients in Taste of the Wild originate in the U.S. There are critical ingredients, however, that are not available domestically in an adequate supply or with as much quality as our international supply. These ingredients are critical to our formulations (i.e. folic acid and taurine) and can only be sourced out of China.

Seriously, just how BIG of a difference does it make, feeding adult dog food to a 7-month old "puppy"? Just how important is it that a puppy eats puppy food...especially when this "puppy" already weighs 50 lbs.??

Asked by: Varmint
Hello, puppy formulas and all life stages formulas are developed to meet the nutritional needs of growing puppies, whereas adult formulas are not. Our puppy formulas and all life stages formulas include specific nutrients, like added DHA that aids in brain and eye development, to help your puppy grow to their full potential. For large breed puppies, the proper ratio of calcium and phosphorus is especially important for development of healthy bones and joints. As a general guide, we recommend feeding a puppy formula or all life stages formula for the first 10-12 months of age, or 12-18 months of age for large breeds. Our maintenance formulas, such as High Prairie Canine Formula, were formulated for adult dogs, therefore we do not recommend feeding them to your 7-month-old puppy. Our High Prairie Puppy Formula would be a great all life stages formula for your puppy to try.
