Trout Limited Ingredient Formula for Dogs

We believe everyone deserves to experience the benefits of simpler and cleaner eating. And that includes our pets. Limited ingredient diets may also be easier for some dogs to digest. In this simplified, limited ingredient recipe, spring-fed trout is the first of just four key ingredients. Along with sunflower oil, trout also provides omega fatty acids that help maintain skin and coat health. Species-specific probiotics further support digestion, while guaranteed levels of antioxidants and DHA help support overall well-being. Finally, carefully selected vitamins and minerals ensure your dog is getting the balanced nutrition he requires with the unique taste of trout he’ll crave.

4 key ingredients
  • Asset 1


    Spring-fed trout is the #1 ingredient. No rendered meats or by-product meals.

  • Asset 1


    A superfood packed with protein, fiber, complex carbohydrates and essential nutrients.

  • Asset 1

    Tomato Pomace

    Excellent source of soluble fiber and antioxidants.

  • Asset 1

    Sunflower Oil

    The healthy fat is rich in omega fatty acids.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have a mixed review on this product. I have two dogs - one who has an iron stomach and one who has a sensitive stomach. The one with the iron stomach loved this food, gobbled it up, and came back for more. My other dog with the sensitive stomach was interested and ate it, but then had an upset stomach later that night. I had even tried to slowly integrate the new food into his diet but adding a small amount to his existing food, but this did not help. I'm uncertain if it's the foot, itself, or the specific formula. I typically feed my dogs poultry-formula foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! This product being grain free / fish based / non GMO / and no flax & peas drew me to it right way! Brought home a small bag to check it out: nice size kibble: not so small that they wil choke on it and not so big where they really have to work it. It has been well accepted as training treats this morning - so added it into current food to begin change over. Happy Havanese Show Breeder - so far so good!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been buying my Australian Shepherd Taste of the Wild food for 6 years now because she has a lot of food allergies. She LOVES every flavor and type they have and she's never been disappointed. The PREY type is great because it's limited with the ingredients and she LOVES the trout flavor. I def. recommend this to anyone! I received this product to try #complimentary for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this food!! I was thrilled to find Taste of the Wild Prey at my local pet store. My dogs have allergies and this seems to suit them very well. They are excited about it when it is time to eat. Please don't stop making it. It is perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my dog with multiple allergies! My dog is a blue brindle American Staffordshire who's allergic to grains, beef and chicken. The trout flavor was the first food I could find that didn't make her super itchy or give her ear infections! Her coat also made a tremendous improvement from dry, flaky and itchy to super soft and shiny! Unfortunately both of my local Tractor Supply's stopped carrying the Prey Limited Ingredients in all flavors, and I can't find anywhere online with the trout flavor in stock

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food! Fewer Vet Visits! I have been feeding Taste of the Wild Pacific for quite a few years now, and switched to the Prey formula when it came out. All my dogs were doing great on the other with the exception of my really sensitive Chinese Crested who just needed bit more limited food. Generally speaking, Taste of the Wild has done wonders for all my dogs health. My lab no longer has chronic ear or anal gland infections. My Mexican Hairless has better skin. My Chihuahua isn't a gassy mess anymore. The biggest difference is in my Chinese Crested who suffers from epilepsy and allergies. Her seizures were reduced by more than half by diet alone and her skin has greatly improved as well. Taste of the Wild is one of the few foods that doesn't contain Rosemary Extract which can be a huge trigger in seizure disorders. Plus, it has all the recommended probiotics and omegas that are recommended to keep inflammation down. I am so glad y'all came up with a limited ingredient line! I have tried the Angus and Trout. I think I am gonna stick with the Trout for now even though they loved them both!! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our two Great Danes love it!! We have two Great Danes under 2 years old. Our female Dane was having issues with her skin and coat, she was having acne like no other and she was starting to lose hair. We were told to try and stay away from chicken based foods and try a limited ingredient, she has made a complete 360 she has no acne left and her hair has grown back in the spots it was missing! Our male Great Dane is picky on what food he will eat but he loves this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love that Taste of the Wild Prey has limited ingredients, non-GMO, and grain free! We have a 77lb plush coat shepherd who has allergy’s to beef and other grains. He was able to eat the food without any problems . I really like that the food contains omega Fatty acids to make his coat shinny and to help his itchy dry skin, since we are changing seasons. The only issue I had with the food is the flavor; Trout. It seemed Roo did not like the flavor as he did not eat all the dog food. Usually he loves fish. He also really loves duck flavored food. Other than the flavor, I give the food two thumbs up! I would definitely recommend Taste of the Wild product. I received PREY Dog Food free/complimentary from Influenster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for lots of allergies! Our basset has a ton of food allergies and this the first time he has been off all his meds. It's really hard to find a food without potato, rice, peas, corn, etc. He also has a sensitive tummy with bloat issues, but he never bloats with this. We are so thankful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charlie loved it and it was an easy transition! I’ve raised my dog Charlie on taste of the wild formulas from High Prairie Puppy to Pacific Stream Canine, today we made the switch to PREY Trout formula and it was an easy transition, he tasted a few bites and then ate the whole bowl! My dog isn’t picky, but he has been on pacific stream for about 3 or 4 years and switched instantly! He loves Taste of the Wild!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys LOVE the Taste of the Wild food (especially the Venison or Salmon!) so it came to no surprise that they love the new PREY food as well! We got the Trout flavor and my 2 Boston Terriers gobbled it all up! My younger one has skin issues and sensitivity when it comes to dog foods so I love that I can have piece of mind giving him this know he won’t have any issues! Thank you Influenster! *Although I received this product free for reviewing purposes, all opinions are my own*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don’t know how helpful my review will be because my dog would honestly eat anything but here I go :) . I have a big Labrador retriever and he’s about 11 years old. I decided to let him try this food when he was having issues with his appetite. He wasn’t eating his breakfast in the morning when usually he crushes it within 2 minutes. So I decided to mix this dog food with his other food and he seemed to really enjoy it! Any time I went towards the baggies he would go nuts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was pretty pleased with this dog food brand. I really like that the ingredients are limited so my dog doesn't have a bunch of stuff he doesn't need. Especially since he is sensitive to certain things. Overall, my dog approved. He seemed to enjoy it and finished both samples. It did take him a bit to try it since it was new but he did eat it all. I could definitely see myself getting him onto this brand. The only thing I'd change is how potent the fish smell is. It's pretty dang fishy smelling. I'd of liked for Yaga to try another flavor as well to see if he liked it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So I have not be able to use this as my dogs main food because I couldn’t transition the food fully with the amount we received in our box but I will say that my dogs loved this as treats. They would get really excited when I pulled out one of these bags and that says a lot considering I have so many other treats in the house and they don’t get as excited for them. This is probably a great food for dogs too as the ingredients list is very limited.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haggis was so excited when the mail was actually for him for once! We received some @tasteofthewildpetfood from @influenster to try out #complimentary and we are not disappointed! I love that Taste of the Wild Prey has limited ingredients, is non-GMO, and is grain free meaning it is good for my pup, because after all.... he is my baby, and I want him to be around as long as possible. After starting with small bits as a treat, he didn’t have any stomach problems over night so dinner the next day was on and cracking! I would definitely recommend this brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure what’s in here I’ve been feeding my pit taste of the wild food from day 1 of adopting him. I saw this new “prey trout” and decided to give it a try. Being 65$ for less food vs the normal 49$ bag it’s definitely a steeper price point but figured it had to be a hit. I’m not sure if I got a bad bag or something but my pit will barely touch this food. He loves the normal flavors taste of the wild carries, but something about this he did not like. Even when he does eat it he acts very tired and restless after and does not act himself. I will not continue to use the “prey” line of food I’ll go back to the original formulas. Should’ve never tried this one from the beginning. 65$ down the drain!!!!! If your dog likes the normal flavor, stick with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1yo Golden Retriever I have a 55lb golden retriever female. Normally we buy Taste of the Wild, Pacific Stream flavor. And Stella loved it, she finished all of it every time which is not like her with other dry foods. I recently switched to taste of prey, (in the trout flavor) because I liked that it had fewer ingredients. She seems to not like taste, she will only eat a little at a time. I really wanted her to like this as much as the other food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was nervous when I received the Taste of the Wild Prey food to test out with my pups. They are very picky eaters. I received this complimentary of influenster. It isn't a bad price when I checked my local store and I think we may be switching to this food. My pups really enjoyed it and I love that it is grain free with natural ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received this sample for free from Influenster in return for my unbiased review. The package is very eye catching but being the picky dog mom I am I skipped right to the back. I love that this kibble is truly is LIMITED INGREDIENT. I love its gluten and wheat free and that the protein source is pure. I have a pup with some serious food allergies and she's the reason I've become a picky and informed dog momma. My other pup can literally eat anything....but only the best is purchased for my girls. If this sample at a glance didn't meet my standards it never would have met their mouths. But sample it they did....and they gobbled it out like they hadn't beed fed in a month so they must have loved it. Now they are on wellness core now and love it...I love it for them and now my entire extended family uses it I don't see us changing kibbkes... but this product is certainly a future contender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am really happy that I was included to test this dog food out for free thanks to PREY and influenster. My dogs literally love this dog food, which was surprising because they are very picky. I slowly introduced the food to them as treats when they came in from using the restroom. Then started mixing it little by little into their food. Soon I switched to give them this food alone. I did this to make sure it did not upset their stomach and they liked it. It worked great and they absolutely love it. I would definitely recommend this dog food as my dogs seems to really enjoy it! Just if you do switch foods, my only caution is to do it little by little which this brand also recommends! Great dog food and great company. I will definitely purchase this food and brand again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is SO picky with dog food. Honestly, she prefers to eat a little bit of human food (chicken, salmon, steak) and will only eat her kibble as a last resort. She is a small 12 pound fluffy dog. I got a Prey dog food sample for free from Influenster. I thought my dog would have the same reaction to this food as others. I was so shocked when she gobbled it right up!! She is obsessed. Hallelujah. Finally, a dog food she loves that is good for her too. Only took 10 years to find it haha. Happy day, happy dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Taste of the Wild PREY Trout Formula for Dogs was the perfect item to receive from Influenster. My dog China will literally eat anything, so she is a tad bit overweight. But let me tell you, she loves this food, I think it's the trout because we normally don't venture out of the ordinary dog food flavors. She seemed to be able to chew them easily, they didn't have a strong fishy smell like I was imagining, and my dog is one happy girl. So I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She's off Allergy meds! My pup Sandy developed horrible food allergies about 6 years ago. You name the food, the allergy meds, she was on them and nothing was truly helping. The taste of the wild salmon had the best results, but she still looked like she had mange from scratching her fur off, the scabs. We were spending $300 a month in pills, blood work etc. Then I saw Prey at my local pet store, and figured, why not? Sandy, after 6 months on this diet, had all her hair back, no more scabs, the only time she has issues now is if she gets into people food. I avidly tell people with animals that this is the best food out there, especially if the animal has allergies. My vet couldn't believe the results and was considering trying it for his pup who is on a hypoallergenic food that runs somewhere around $80 for a 10lb bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I got a free sample of this product and since my dog already has a certain dog food their stomach is used to I din't want to switch cold turkey to a new food. Instead I used this in a kong for him to enjoy as a treat. He really seemed to like it and seemed just as interested as he is when I used treats. I wouldn't switch my dog to this since we already have a type of food that works well, but I would recommend to others looking for a new dog food or for new dog owners to start out with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helos with loose stools We have a 2yr old 105 lb female German Shepherd who has had loose runny stools since she was 3months. Vet did lots of test everything ok but still diarrhea. Tried many many different foods even homemade. Holistic vet said no chicken fish would be good. Found prey trout and her stools changed almost immediately. She still occasionally has loose poos but most of the time there good. Can't say she's crazy about the taste she doesn't eat like she use to but at least she's pooping better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!! No more ear problems!! I have tried nearly every limited ingredient grain free dog food out there and my pit-mix would continue to dig at her ears. She's strong, so flapping her head constantly eventually broke up skin on the tip of her ear. Vets thought food related and after trying several- I suspected it may be the 'meat meals' they all seem to have in the ingredients. I found 'Prey' and they had no meat meals listed. She has been eating this for 3 weeks now and her ears are healed. Finally!
