Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best match for our dog Our dog has having allergic reactions to something and after going to vet specialist and being out on some drugs and hypo food she stabilized. We then had to do a food trail to test which ingredients she was allergic to by adding the whole ingredient into her hypo food to see if she would react. We learned she's allergic to chicken, beef and pork. After lots of research and reviewing we compared a bunch of brands and picked ancient stream from totw. She loves to eat it her coat is so nice and smooth, and best of all no reactions to them. I hope they keep everything the same and keep selling it as it so prefect right now for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad we’re making the switch! It’s difficult to find quality dog food that are grain inclusive. So happy to have found this blend! My dogs are also digging around their old food and only eating this while we are trying to transition. I’m surprised that their stools are already firmer, especially while transitioning. My only caveat is that I like to feed wet food in the morning and there isn’t a grain inclusive salmon available. I also am concerned that the wet pacific stream has turkey in it. Hoping there will be an ancient stream wet that matches up to the dry in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rufus won't eat anything else! I started using Canine Ancient Stream when my Belgian Malinois mix was a puppy as the Pacific Stream puppy formula is grain free and I wanted the ancient grains. I was able to do this because it is for ALL life stages and he loves it and has thrived on it! I have tried to find a comparable food that is a little less expensive but have have come to the conclusion that one does not exist!! people always comment on how shiny and soft his coat is and Rufus and I are very happy with Taste of the Wild Ancient Stream, canine formula!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves it! My 1-year-old Siberian Husky was suffering from itchiness when I had her on Nutro Ultra. She just went to the vet and there is nothing indicating why she was itching, so I’m guessing it’s the Nutro since I just started her on it a month ago. Decided to switch her to this food - loved the ingredients, no chicken, which I found out lots of dogs have allergies to. She loves it so much that when I mixed this with her old food she only ate the half of the bowl that contained TOTW. I also got a deal at the store I bought it at while I was checking out, buy ten bags of TOTW and get one free! Nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 7 year old Bernese loves this food!! My dog Buddah is a 7 year d Bernese Mountain Dog and he became allergic to chicken last year. We slowly switched him, originally to Taste of the Wild pacific stream salmon. Recently our vet wanted us to switch to grains. Knowing how much he loved the pacific stream we switched him to ancient stream which he loves just as much. I researched the grains in this food and each one has its own job to help your pet stay healthy without unnecessary grains like corn or corn by-products. Buddah is also a very picky eater so for him to love this food it has to be tasty. His coat is shinier, he has more energy, his bowel habits have improved. He’s all around very healthy for a senior Bernese Mountain Dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog absolutely loved this product! So much that I put it in the same bowl with the food he normally eats, and he ate around his orginal food & gobbled up every bite of this amazing dog food! My smaller dog completely nudged it and didn't even attempt to try it, so her loss! I definitely reccomend this to all pet owners, especially for dogs with a sensitive stomach. My dog normally throws up almost everything & he handled this food very well. So glad & thankful for Influenster & Taste of Wild for letting me try this 100% complementary!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog went WILD for this stuff!! I got it in the mail #complementary as a voxbox. The minute I brought it inside he got a whiff and started going crazy for it! He doesnt normally get this excited for his normal food, it was like he was getting a treat but it was a healthy food instead. All of the ingredients are great and it comes with a lot of necessary vitamins your dog needs. Kodi didnt get sick either (as some dogs do when switching up foods). I would highly recommend trying this one out!! #WildForAncientGrains Ancient Stream Canine Recipe with Smoked Salmon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Influenster was kind enough to send my pup, Molly, some Taste Of The Wild: Ancient Grains kibble to try for free! Miss Molly is a very picky pup so I wasnt sure how this was going to go down. But she LOVES this food!! Getting her to sit still for pics after she had a taste was tricky, she kept sniffing the bag! Molly has a very sensitive tummy so we will probably only use this kibble as treats as switching foods completely doesnt go well for her. But she adores this food! Thanks influenster and Taste of The Wild for making this doggies day!! #WildForAncientGrains

I’m currently feeding my dog TOTW pacific stream and switching over to TOTW ancient grain salmon flavor. Do I still need to slowly introduce the new food? 

Asked by: Kimbersdad
Hello, thanks for contacting us. Yes, to avoid digestive upset, we always recommend a gradual transition between recipes over a period of 7-10 days. 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.
