Ancient Prairie Canine Recipe with Roasted Bison & Roasted Venison is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 294.
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 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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 1 year old pup loves this food! I personally like a little healthy grains in his diet. He always finishes his food and has healthy bowl movements. Im a big fan of the brand and their quality ingredients

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pour the kibble into a bowl, blink and it's gone. That was my experience with TOTW. My pup wolfed it down so quickly that I almost forgot I gave it to him. I only received two small sample packs which for a 50lb dog is about one day's worth of dog food so I can't speak to its nutritional value. All I can vouch for is that he loved eating it and didnt get sick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My sister and I both use Taste of the Wild, and let me say, it is amazing! Best dog food for its price point. Every batch is consistent, so no tummy aches after buying a new bag. Their fur is lustrous and no dry skin (even in winter) or bad breath. My puppers are picky; I have to rotate food flavors every few months when they get tired of one flavor. Because Taste of the Wild has so many varieties, I never have to buy another brand. This particular variety is high protein, so keep that in mind when selecting a flavor for your pup.

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. If you have any additional questions about our recipes, please feel free to contact us by visiting https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/contact-us.

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.

Ancient grains I would like to change up to another acient grain instead of feeding the dog same bag all the time. Do I have to slowly introduce new bag over time or can I start feeding right out of the bag? currently feeding Prairie Love it

Asked by: Chris
Hello and thanks for reaching out! Many pets enjoy eating more than one Taste of the Wild recipe. To avoid digestive upset, we recommend limiting your rotation to two recipes and gradually mixing foods over 7-10 days. When you transition between recipes, slowly reduce the amount of the old recipe and increase the new recipe.
