28lb., 14lb., 5lb.High Prairie Puppy Recipe with Roasted Bison & Roasted Venison is rated out of 5 by 241.Rated 5 out of 5 by StephanieW from Love the food but confused about ingredient label! My rescue GSD loves the High Prairie food, and it has done wonders for her overall appearance - her coat has thickened and softened so much - and she's so playful and happy. Easy on the tummy, too. She never gets sick eating it. My friend uses the High Prairie puppy formula. My only confusion is over the labeling. If you look at the ingredients and the guaranteed analysis on your WEBSITE, both of them list taurine, which is important for me. Not a lot of dog foods include it. However, when you look at the actual label on the bag, taurine is omitted. Why?Date published: 2019-02-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Mabel P Stewart from Never been so happy to see my dog eat! Mabel is a 6 month old GSD mix puppy. After being on 3 other puppy foods prior, at the recommendation from a friend, we tried TOTW High Prairie Puppy. Mabel was having some stomach problems, wasn't interested in eating, had started to lose weight because she was vomiting up the food we had her on at the time(and no it wasn't cheap stuff), and also has a sensitivity to chicken. We took her to the vet and had a barium swallow and x-rays done just to be sure there wasn't an obstruction. Everything came back normal. So we bought a bag and after a few days on this food she is excited to eat, dances around her food dish, has more energy, and is back to acting like an energetic puppy!Date published: 2018-04-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Mazza3506 from Perfect Pup food We rescued a 4 month old puppy from a hoarding situation. She was horribly under weight, her fur and skin were in bad shape. We have been feeding our other dogs Taste of the Wild for years. We had never used the puppy formula before so we gave it a chance. We were impressed with how quickly our little girls put on weight, thickened her very short coat, and how soft her coat became.Date published: 2018-04-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Harness1994 from Our Dogs Look Amazing We Have Been Feeding Taste of The Wild High Prairy Puppy Food For 5 years.. Our Dogs Love it.. Our 4lb Chihuahua Bella Has been on it Since She was a Puppy.. She is 7yrs old now.

I’m a Wheaten Terrier, 14 weeks old, and I am writing to comment (don't tell my owner I'm using his computer) about Taste of the Wild puppy formula. My owner switched me over to this after arriving at my new home. I must say, I really like the taste! I always finish my meals, right down to the last kibble, so I’m sure that the TOTW company is doing something right. I also love the ingredients… no corn or other grains to upset my little tummy, and the first ingredient is buffalo… yummy! There are also lots of vitamins and other good things to keep me healthy. This is my first Amazon post, and I hope my review will help other dogs who see this post make a smart decision when considering puppy food.

He ate TOTW High Prairie for 9 of those years, he never had any health issues. well, 1 ear infection his entire life, he died healthy and active from bloat. So when we decided it was time to get our new puppies, Australian Shepherds, the only brand we turned to was TOTW. They both love the food, they both are healthy and thriving, we did get them very young as the person that had them was ready for them to be gone at 4 weeks, they were eating TOTW Puppy High Prairie from 4 weeks, they are now 14 weeks and are active and healthy puppies. We also feed TOTW to our 2 cats.Date published: 2020-02-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Shachafit from Picky and sensitive pup loves it I have a czechoslovakian wolfdog pup, and ever since I brought her she never liked any of the dry foods I tried and always had diarrhea. Following many frustrating months, I contacted a breeder from abroad and she highly recommended feeding my pup with taste of the wild. My pup loves it and the diarrhea stopped almost immediately after she began eating this food, she gained lots of weight and her fur became lovely.Date published: 2016-10-27

Our 6 month old standard poodle had diarrhea for approximately one month. We called our vet right away and they put her through testing and medication series twice with no change. Now they're saying the dog food has too much protein. Is this common?Hello, apologies for the delayed response. The protein levels in our puppy formulas do not commonly cause diarrhea in otherwise healthy puppies. You might consider trying our Pacific Stream Puppy formula, as it is a little lower in protein and is formulated with a different protein source (salmon rather than venison/bison). Dogs can develop intolerances or allergies to specific proteins, which may manifest as gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea. When this occurs, it is not necessarily the amount of protein that causes the problem, but rather the source of the protein.Date published: 2017-09-25
