Ancient Prairie Canine Recipe with Roasted Bison & Roasted Venison is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 494.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind for me and a healthy, tasteful food. I started my male Labrador on Taste of the Wild as an eight week old puppy. He was incrediblely anxious to eat his meal even back then. I have continued with the adult “Prairie” blend which he continues to devour. I have researched pet food health benefits for many months now and Taste of the Wild rates very well with most advocate groups, vets, and trainers. Rio is a healthy, strapping 7.5 month old pup. His stools are solid, his coat beautiful, and he is not susceptible to stomach issues. Further, I am retired and this pet food is a good value when stacked up against the other options. In closing, I am very pleased with Taste of the Wild, and will continue to purchase the product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my pups stomach problems My Australian Shepherd is a year and half old and his whole life he has suffered from diarrhea until I switch to taste of the wild ancient grains. As soon as I switch to ancient grains he has been so happy! I prefer ancient grains over the grain free recipe because my vet told us not to go grain free unless there is a real food allergy to grain. I have tried so many different dog foods and this is the only dog food that has helped his stomach issues. I also choose because of the high level of glucosamine for healthy joints, and for the variety of flavors! I can change up to different flavors of the ancient grains and my dog loves getting a new flavor every month!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our dog loves this food and he’s healthier Our 1 yr old lab was having issues with loose stools and vomiting. It was getting so bad it was almost daily. We had him on a popular brand but then started researching the ingredients. The fillers used in this food was among the worst for him. We just recently completed the change over to Taste of the Wild and he hasn’t had any issues with vomiting or loose stools since. Plus he absolutely loves it. He used to let his food sit in his dish for hours, now he begs to be fed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST! I take great care as to what I put in my body and that is no different for my dogs. We live an active, adventurous life so they need the best and Taste of The Wild is the best! That’s all they eat from puppy to elder. I have an 8 month blue heeler, 7 year coonhound and 12 year shepherd mix. I can say the only thing different about the puppy verse the old pup is he just got wiser. Same activity level and I believe that’s a huge part of their diet. Won’t buy anything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The ingredients are wonderful! I like that they still include grains, as grain-free dog food is now linked to heart problems in dogs. They use quinoa and other ancient grains that are much better for dogs than just the typical corn meal used in dry dog foods. That being said, my dog didnt enjoy it. The kibble is one color and one flavor. My dog, who is very picky, did not take to the food. He likes variety (and will pick out the flavors he doesnt like) I gave this 4 stars because of the quality of ingredients and because another flavor may resonate with my pup more.

Hi what is the calcium and phosphorus % and why is it not listed in the general analysis? Calcium is important in large breed puppies, too much calcium can cause rapid bone growth. 

Asked by: Bethany
Hello, and thanks for reaching out. Our Ancient Prairie Canine Recipe contains 1.2% calcium and 1.0% phosphorus, both on an as-fed basis. Please know, by AAFCO regulations, the guaranteed analysis is only required to list four nutrients: crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber and moisture, which is why our calcium and phosphorus levels are not listed.

I have 2 mixed breeds, 60 lbs each. One has a sensitive stomach. What dog food would be the best for them?

Asked by: Mom to 4
Hello, and thanks for reaching out. While we do not have any recipes formulated specifically for dogs with sensitive stomachs, you may consider trying our limited ingredient diet, Taste of the Wild PREY. Our PREY formulas can be great options for pets with sensitivities due to their limited ingredients. Each formula contains no more than four key ingredients (one animal protein source, sunflower oil, tomato pomace and lentils). We also recommend consulting with your veterinarian to determine the best diet for your dogs, based on their needs.

My goldendoodle is highly allergic to poultry, fish, diary and peanut butter. I currently have him on the ancient grain venison and bison. However I see it has chicken meal and chicken fat. Do you have any product that does NOT contain chicken products?

Asked by: Beans
Hello, thanks for contacting us. Our Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe does not contain chicken as a main protein source. It does include a natural flavor derived from chicken. The natural flavor is added in an amount that is not likely to trigger allergies in pets.
