5lb., 14lb., 28lb.Ancient Prairie Canine Recipe with Roasted Bison & Roasted Venison is rated out of 5 by 479.Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy 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!Date published: 2020-01-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoss1 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.Date published: 2020-10-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachj 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.Date published: 2020-09-16Rated 5 out of 5 by christine n buddy from my big boy i have been using taste of the wild for 18 yrs with 3 of my furry kids ; my 2 that passed were on pacific stream ; my boy now is an american bully n our vet recommended a limited protein because Buddy is allergic to many proteins;we tried the ancient grains roasted venison n roasted bison n boom it was an instant hit with him n with mommy here too seeing as no allergys flared up what so ever ; he has now been on it for 4 yrs n we r very pleased n will always use taste of the wild food ; the price is very responsable n the quality is great ; tu so much for such a wonderful product that we fully trust n will recommned to family n friends ;Date published: 2022-04-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarah00 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!Date published: 2022-04-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Bputz23 from Our French Bulldog puppies love this ! For the past 8 years we have started all of our French Bulldog puppy litter with this food. Every since we started using Taste of The Wild Venison & Bison all of our puppies have loved it, plus we know we are starting there healthy lives off on the right pawsDate published: 2022-04-26Rated 4 out of 5 by kima35 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.Date published: 2019-11-04Rated 5 out of 5 by maureen_l 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 ingredientsDate published: 2019-10-08
