Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our dog loves it We recently got a Shih Tzu who is about a year old. The food the people we got him from gave us with him was making him sick so I ran down to my local Bosley's and bought him this. I switched him right away as I figured he couldn't feel much worse then he already was and within a few days he was doing much better. He no longer has gas or tummy issues. His coat is also better and he has put on some weight over the last few weeks which is excellent as he was rather thin when we got him. He also appeared to have a skin condition when we got him which has also cleared up so I figure it was also caused by his previous diet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Something Changed I also agree with the other review "From Hero to Zero". We have LOVED this food since we switched a couple years ago & now since we got our last bag our dog has once again broken out in hives, itchy skin rashes, upset stomach, not eating regularly, trouble going to the bathroom & some unexplained vomiting episodes....all the same problems we had BEFORE we switched TO this food. Unfortunately, since I have seen this exact same thing happening to many others I have to think it is something in the formula.......please consider taking a look at these problems & test the food. Something has gone awry...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Found a Dog Food Both Dogs Love My dogs are both picky and have different tastes so I've been trying several different dogs food from Blue Buffalo to Canidae and I just couldn't find a food both dogs would be happy to eat. I finally switched to taste of the wild and eventually tried Sierra Mountain and I have never seen my dogs so happy to eat. It's a high quality dog food and my dogs love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rocky "wolfed" it down! I have a 17 month old Dameranian named Rocky. He has seizures and through the process of elimination, I found he's highly sensitive to chemicals and poultry. He became an extremely picky eater, afraid of becoming sick I suppose. Trying to find a dog food that doesn't have poultry/fowl in it is like trying to find the proverbial needle. Not to mention expensive! I've made him homemade food from the day he came into our family, so that was no problem. But there are times when supplemental food is a necessary luxury. But he hated every single food we tried. Not the Sierra Mountain! Short story...Rocky loves it. Thank you so much for an affordable, appealing, healthy dog food. I bought one can of the Sierra Mountain, also. I'll see tomorrow what he thinks of that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from From Hero to Zero Not sure where you went wrong but SOMETHING IS WRONG. We've been feeding Sierra Mountain for months and our dog was perfectly fine. This last bag that we bought in July he has been losing weight, lethargic and has been trouble walking. The SAME problems that many others have been reporting on consumer reports. How could you possibly be ignoring this? We will NEVER buy your products again. SHAME ON YOU.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Weimaraner finally eating We've had a difficult time with our young Weimaraner showing prolonged interest in any food. He's always been very lean (he's 11 months now), so I've struggled with trying to put weight on him in a healthy way (he's considered a large breed due to the amount of growth over the first year). We've tried kibble, kibble + wet, raw homemade, and adding Dyne, a weight gain supplement. I've spent a lot of money on getting my guy to eat! He's only ever eaten about 1/2 to 3/4 of his serving size for any of the foods/regimes we've picked for the entirety of his existence thus far. I'm so happy to say that he's finally interested in eating with this Taste of the Wild formula. He's actually eating the hard kibble (after most recently being on a raw, soft formula) and we're over joyed. Thank you for your product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Llasa Apso Loves meal time! Ginger is 6 and I have had her the last two years. We love the lamb formula, no allergies! Coat looks great. She is 20 lbs and 1 cup fills her up. Nugget size is great for her small size. She has a mostly seditary life style. We walk about a mile per day, she is in the yard some, but mostly naps and watches out the windows. Glad she was on this brand when I got her!

I have a dachshund who has recently had 13 struvite stones removed from her bladder. I am in need of a food that is low in protein, phosphorus, and magnesium; one that promotes formation of acidic urine. Any suggestions? She can no longer have Sierra.

Asked by: Vicki72
Good my australian shepherd had that problem and I solved it by giving him filtered water,  tablets guisazo caballo with chancapiedras that eliminates all type of crystals and stones and a food like hills grain free, at the moment it is eating taste of the wild roasted lamb

My 2 year old Boxer has been dealing with slightly elevated liver enzymes his whole life. I had him on the High Prairie Dog Food originally but was concerned that the large amount of protein would be tough on his liver. Which food would you recommend?

Asked by: Scottie
Hello, Scottie. Since your Boxer has a chronic medical issue, it would be best to discuss diet with your veterinarian. The Sierra Mountain Canine Formula has 25.6% protein on an as-fed basis, quite a bit lower than the High Prairie. Your vet should be able to tell you if this is a good choice based on your dog’s medical history.

Is this a puppy and adult dog food? Our 8 year old lab eats this, and we are getting a puppy in a few weeks. Would this be considered safe to feed to the puppy? Puppy will be 8 weeks old when he comes home and is already eating dry dog kibble.

Asked by: Carli
Congratulations on your new puppy! Sierra Mountain is an all life stages food, and meets the nutritional guidelines for growing puppies as well as adult dogs.
