Our proprietary K9 Strain Probiotics are developed specifically for dogs and added after the cooking process to ensure viability. Each pound of Taste of the Wild provides 80 million live, active cultures that help support healthy digestive and immune systems.

  • Omega Fatty Acid

    Omega Fatty Acid Blend – Balanced levels of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids work together to support healthy skin and a shiny coat.

  • All Life Stages Nutrition

    All Life Stages Nutrition – This recipe provides the vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients your pet needs throughout their life.

Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe with Roasted Lamb is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 227.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is one of the pickiest eaters. And once we find something he likes if we feed it to him too often he gets burnt out and refuses to eat it. He also has to smell all his food for a good 20-30 seconds before eating it, to make sure he wants it. I was shocked when I gave him these crunchies! First off, he gave them a quick sniff, not as prolonged as usual. Then he immediately gobbled it up! And everyday I have him a little of the crunchies until there was no more, and not once did sniff it or pass it down. With no hesitation he gobbled them up everytime, which is very rare for him! I think these might be a keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I received this product to test in exchange for my honest review. While I am not a dog and cannot speak for my pets, I would give this product good marks for the ingredients it offers !! This recipe includes ancient grains like quinoa and chia which is a nice alternative to corn based dog foods. I have a teacup poodle who is 11 and a 6 year old Japanese spitz. Id say this is a great size for small/medium pets but Id keep in mind your dogs age - my Japanese spitz (who in retrospect eats anything) had no problem with eating her share but my teacup poodle didnt really show any interest. Maybe due to how hard it is as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference!! My dogs have been on a chicken based diet for their entire lives - and then developed an allergy. Gas has always been an issue with one of them too. We switched to taste of the wild ancient mountain and its crazy the difference. The gas issues are GONE. Our wire hair guy is significantly softer and the other one is teddy bear soft. They have almost no smell to them, the allergy and discolor has completely cleared up. And they love it!! They are 6.5 years old and just as energetic as they were at 6 months. It's great to see them thriving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have two German Shepherds (well, one May be part Maligator, but anyways...) and they love trying new food. One is a senior/geriatric dog and the other is under 2, so they both need the best nutrition they can get. I tested the Taste of the Wild food on them separately and well, they both loved it! To them, it was a treat. Usually you have to entice them to eat dry food, but not with Taste of the Wild! And I like that its made with quality ingredients, so I know theyre getting the nutrients they need!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I gotta say I was a little confused on how I could personally review a dog food. I was giving it to my 4 dogs in handfuls as a treat and they seemed to enjoy it, then again, theyll eat literally anything lol... But there were some positives from this, I have one dog that has food sensitivities and he had started to throw up the food he had been eating, almost nightly. I swapped to a different food and he seems to be better but I have run out... this food was all that I felt comfortable with feeding him and it came in clutch. He seems to be able to handle it pretty well, no vomiting so I might end up getting a bag for him. Kibble size seems fine, he gobbles it all right up and seems to enjoy it. :) thanks Influenster for providing my doggo with a nice dinner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs used to eat the original formula of this brand and loved it. To be honest Im not sure why we stopped using it. I would highly recommend this dog food. We have two dogs of completely different breeds (one lab pitbull mix and one total mutt) so finding a food that suits large and small breeds can be challenging. Not to mention my small dog is a picky eater. I received this product and was excited to give it to them. They both gobbled it down and had no adverse reactions after. Ill have to buy a full size bag of this once we run out of our other dog food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Since using taste of the wild ancient mountain canine recipe roasted lamb I've notice my dog's coat has become so much soft and he has had more energy. He has been able to really play more and enjoy time with the family. I have been completely impressed with the noticeable difference and really can't say enough positive things about taste of the wild. I have recommended so many times and will continue to recommend because the quality is amazing and the fact that it's made with the best quality ingredients that I can feel confident about giving my best friend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is OBSESSED with the samples we received from Influenster. He was short on his normal food, so we mixed this with his regular food and immediately ate it. Our husky is a bit of a Prince and when we get close to the end of a flavor of his food, he gets bored with it and wants something new. I had never seen him take to a new food so quickly and easily. He never had any stomach problems, got sick, or reacted negatively to the food, but he has a stomach of steel, so that didnt really surprise us.

Can you list your foods in grain and grain free categories?  I like to switch off every other bag.

please advise as to any action you are taking regarding the "grain free" issue with dog foods....understand that this is not the best feed for dogs....please advise

Asked by: barbara
Hello, Barbara and thank you for reaching out to us directly. Please know our Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe with Roasted Lamb is not grain-free as it includes ancient grains, such as grain sorghum, millet, quinoa and chia seed, which are naturally high in fiber and rich in protein. In addition to our grain-inclusive lamb recipe, we offer a grain-free lamb recipe, called Sierra Mountain Canine Recipe. It's important to note, that to date, the FDA still has not found any science-based causes to link grain-free diets — including Taste of the Wild — to DCM. As they note, it is a complex issue with numerous factors to consider, such as breeds that have a genetic predisposition for developing DCM. We continue to monitor this issue closely and support ongoing research efforts, because our top priority is, and always will be, to provide pets with quality, safe food that meets all federal and state regulatory guidelines. If you have any further questions, please visit our FAQ page at https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/view-all-faqs/#dcm.

What TOW K9 dry food would be best for a nearly 12 yr old GSD retiring Military Working Dog with chronic kidney disease. She has been on Hill's Science Diet K/D for years. A vet told me she would need to be on a lower protein diet.

Asked by: Janet
Hello, Janet! First off, our hats are off to your military dog, we love and appreciate the work they do! We’re sorry to hear about your dog’s diagnosis of chronic kidney disease. TOTW does not have any protein restricted formulas for this condition. Please know, while diet cannot cure kidney disease, specially formulated renal diets have been proven to help dogs with renal disease feel better and potentially live longer. We recommend you speak with your veterinarian about the best nutritional options for your dog.

I use your salmon food can I switch to your lamb, bison or other without a 7 -10 day change over?

Asked by: Mike 2 dog
Hello, and thanks for contacting us! Some dogs are more sensitive than others, so we always recommend a gradual transition between recipes to avoid digestive upset. For the first two to three days, start with 25% of the recommended feeding portion of the new food mixed with 75% of the recommended portion of the current diet. For the next two to three days, feed 50% each of the recommended portions of the new and current diets. For the last two to three days, feed 75% of the new diet and 25% of the current one before transitioning to the new recipe entirely.

I was looking for dry food for my English mastiff puppy she’s 5 months 55lbs. I have been told that with your brand she may be able to jump to and adult large breed food. If that’s the case it would. E better as we have 2yr Amstaff already on your food

Asked by: Andy Cuevas

However, our Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe is an All Life Stages Recipe, which means it was developed to meet the nutritional needs of dogs of all ages, from puppy to senior. This recipe may be a good choice for your puppy as Ancient grains have been widely recognized for being rich in protein, and excellent sources of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and omega fatty acids. Please know, with any diet change, we recommend consulting with your dog’s veterinarian, to determine the best diet based on your dog’s needs.

Asked by: Lucky O

My guys are on Pacific Stream, but they get so gassy is there another formula that you recommend??

Asked by: Trudi
Hello and thanks for reaching out! We’re sorry to hear about your dogs’ gas – that’s no fun! Dietary causes of flatulence are typically associated with the amount and type of carbohydrates and dietary fiber in a recipe. The types and amounts of protein and fat can play a role as well. Individual dogs react differently to these variables, so some dogs may have flatulence problems on a certain diet while others do not. We’d love to learn more about your pups in order to provide a personalized recipe recommendation. If interested, please contact us by submitting an inquiry at https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/contact-us/.

What are the calcium and phosphorus levels for the ancient mountain recipe?

Asked by: abLEcTOr

For Ancient Mountain, my bag shows 2 1/4 cup per day for a 20lb 8-12 month old. Your webpage shows 1 3/4 cup per day. Chewy's website is showing 2 cups per day. This is all conflicting information. What is the right feeding amount to follow?

Asked by: Steve
I called Taste of the Wild's customer service yesterday and they patched me through to a vet. She said something similar, but said I might have purchased a slightly older printed bag pre-update. She recommended following the 1 3/4 cup per the website. I'm posting this, just in case anyone else was curious.

My dog is allergic to chicken and wondering if there is a chance that this food has chicken or chicken fat.

Asked by: Mary
Hello, thanks for contacting us. Our Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe does not contain chicken. It does include natural flavor derived from hydrolyzed chicken. The protein in hydrolyzed chicken is broken down into small particles that are less likely to be recognized by the immune system and shouldn't affect any allergies in your pet.
