    Sustainably Sourced Salmon – Salmon, the number one ingredient in this formula, provides high-quality protein and omega fatty acids to support healthy skin and coat. To help promote sustainable fishing, we use a blend of wild-caught and farmed salmon.

  • Species-Specific Probiotics

    Species-Specific Probiotics – Healthy digestive and immune systems are vital to the overall health of your pet. 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.

Ancient Stream Canine Recipe with Smoked Salmon is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 282.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from My dog likes it BUT! My Corgi has been eating the Taste of the Wild Salmon Grain free version for about 2 years. I wanted to incorporate grain into his diet and was thrilled when Taste of the Wild came out with the Ancient Grains product line. I switched my dog to this new food gradually over a month or so and things seemed to be going well however my dog has had much softer stools then usually. I was hoping this would resolve over time but it has not - his stools are continuing to be very soft and sometimes even worse like melted soft serve ice cream. I am completely confused as to what to try or do next as I really really love the Taste of the Wild brand and the ingredients you use.

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

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 4 out of 5 by from Otis previously ate the grain-free version of this same food/flavor. Ironically, right before receiving this our vet recommended we not do grain-free because some common ingredients in such foods can be harsh on our Frenchies digestion. Anyway, this came just in time! Otis seems to enjoy it more than the previous food. One thing is we wish it had fewer ingredients, just to be more simple. We received this food sample free for testing. Id say it passed the test!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Option for Allergic Dogs One of my dogs is allergic to chicken and it's so hard to find food (with grains) that don't have chicken. Both dogs gobble this up and I haven't seen any adverse affects.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Barley loves taste but I can’t stand his breath. I originally had Barley on the puppy grain free high prairie food then after his 1st year moved him to pacific steam grain free recipe. Once ancient grains stream was available I switched his food. I began to notice his breath was bad. I never thought it was his food since he had salmon food before this recipe. I honestly hate to have to discontinue giving him this food. When he licks himself he transfers that sticky breath smell plus I can’t have him near my face. I even spend so much money on different dental treats and new toothpaste but his breath still stinks. He didn’t have this issue with his previous diet. He has grown a great coat and has had no issues with his stool eating the grain free recipe from taste of the wild but I want him on a grain diet.

Why is yeast added to this formula. My lab gets yeast ear infections, would the added yeast cause a problem?

Asked by: Gabriel
Hello and thanks for reaching out. This recipe contains dried yeast (saccharomyces) as a source of protein and B vitamins. This yeast is different than the types of yeast that are found in canine ear infections. Please know, ear infections are often related to underlying allergies. There are numerous causes of allergies in dogs; only about 20% are food related. Your veterinarian can help you determine the cause and appropriate treatment for your dog's ear problems. If we can answer any further questions about our recipes, please contact us by submitting an inquiry at https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/contact-us/.

Where are ingredients in Taste of the Wild Ancient grains a pacific stream sourced from? I know it’s made in the USA but where are ingredients coming from? 

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello and thanks for reaching out! Most of the ingredients in Taste of the Wild originate in the U.S. There are critical ingredients, however, that are not available domestically in an adequate supply or with as much quality as our international supply. We do purchase some ingredients from foreign suppliers such as dried chicory root from Belgium. Additionally, our salmon is sourced from Norway and South America. Due to concerns over sustainable fishing, we use a blend of wild caught and farmed salmon. It comes in without any artificial preservatives. There are also ingredients critical to our recipes (i.e. folic acid and taurine) that can only be obtained from China. We believe leaving out these ingredients would not be in the best interest of your pet. If you have any additional questions about our recipes, please contact us by visiting www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/contact-us/.

What is the calcium level of the Taste of the Wild Ancient Stream dry? Also, now with the concerns over grain-free diets and golden retrievers, I am not sure what it the best food for an upcoming litter? Last time, I did Pacific Stream puppy?

Asked by: Beth B
Hello, and thanks for reaching out! Our Ancient Stream Canine Recipe contains 1.5% calcium on an as-fed basis. Please know, to date, the FDA still has not found any science-based causes to link grain-free diets — including Taste of the Wild — to 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.

Hello, I was curious why there is no added glucosamine and chondroitin in the Ancient Stream recipe (and also the Ancient Mountain recipe) like there is in the Ancient Wetlands and the Ancient Prairie. Thank You!

Asked by: KYBulldogges
Hello! We do not add glucosamine or chondroitin to our Taste of the Wild recipes. Some of our recipes (Ancient Mountain, Ancient Wetlands and Ancient Prairie) include naturally occurring glucosamine and chondroitin due to their ingredients. We cannot guarantee glucosamine and chondroitin levels in Ancient Stream because fish protein sources do not have as much naturally occurring glucosamine and chondroitin as other animal protein sources.
