Rated 5 out of 5 by 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My owner was away from his computer... Hi, my name is Molly. 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. Thank you for reading, and tell your owners about this. - Molly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for our babies!!! We changed our girls food to Taste of the Wild Puppy and could not be more pleased!!! The food has made our girl look so healthy!! The big surprise is that as most knows a German Shepard sheds a lot of hair but feeding her Taste of Wild has reduced the shedding to a minimum!!! Wow we are so grateful to be able to get this good food for our baby and to see how healthy she looks!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. She is still on Puppy Formula Because of how Sensitive She is to other flavors and the Small Pieces are Easier for Her to Eat .. She Does Great on it. Our 2yr 10lb Chihuahua Mix Daisy is Gaining to much Weight on the puppy food.. We are going to cut back and see if that Does the Trick. If not will be switching to small breed adult TOTW..

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My labrador puppy LOVED this food! After having some serious issues with grain inclusive foods, we switched our girl over to this brand and flavor. She absolutely loved it! Her coat was always shiny, her stools were back to normal, and she seemed to grow and develop really well for the first 10 months as well. Unfortunately, she didn't do so well on the other puppy formula, Pacific Stream, as she appeared to hate something about it. She did get bored of this flavor over-time and we switched her over to an All Life Stages wild boar blend. Overall, we loved this food for our pup.

what is the per cent of calcium in the puppy and the adult food

How do you soften this puppy food to give to young puppies to start weaning??

Asked by: Labpupsx11
Hello and thanks for your question! Soaking kibble in water is often suggested when first transitioning puppies to dry food because it is easier for them to chew. We recommend combining three parts kibble to one-part water 10-15 minutes before serving. Once your pup is used to it, it is not necessary to continue soaking the food. If you have any questions, please contact us by visiting our website https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/contact-us/.

I have a large breed puppy. He is 8 weeks old. My vet recommended that I put him on Royal Canin. She said that it has the calcium and gluecosamine that he would need. I didn't see in your guaranteed analysis anything that mentioned either of these.

Asked by: Brian C
Hello and thanks for reaching out! Our High Prairie Puppy Recipe with Roasted Bison & Roasted Venison contains 1.4% calcium on an as-fed basis. As for the gluecosamine, pet food regulations only allow glucosamine and chondroitin to be added to adult dog foods. We recommend feeding large breed puppies a formula labeled for puppies or all life stages until they are 12-18 months of age; this will ensure that they receive the appropriate amount of calcium and all other nutrients as they are developing. This recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional needs of all growing puppies, including large breeds.

Does taste of the wild make a large kibble.

Asked by: Kjuedes
Hello, we do not have a large kibble dog formula.

Asked by: Fulrathmill Cavaliers
Hello and thanks for reaching out. We’re very sorry to hear about your Cavaliers’ diarrhea and hope they are on the mend!

I'm thinking of transitioning my 8 1/2 month old Bullmastiff puppy to your High Sierra Puppy food. He currently weighs 106 pounds and is obviously still growing. How much of your food should I be giving him after the transition

Asked by: Mike
Hello, Mike and thanks for your interest in TOTW! According to our feeding guide (located on the side gusset of the bag and each recipe’s product page), your Bullmastiff puppy should be eating around 6 cups of High Prairie Puppy each day. If you’re looking for the feeding amount for Sierra Mountain Canine, the recommended serving would be 6 ¼ cups per day. As an all life stages recipe, Sierra Mountain Canine was designed for dogs of all ages and sizes and can be fed to your furry friend throughout adulthood. Please know, the amounts listed on the feeding guide can vary as the recommendations are a starting point. Some dogs may require more or less food than the guidelines depending on activity level and other factors. Additionally, your veterinarian can help you determine the best feeding guide for you dog based on his needs.

Hello, I am a 9 week old male Pitbull and was wondering if I can switch off each month between your two dry puppy options or do I need to wean?

Asked by: Luke
Many pets enjoy eating more than one Taste of the Wild formula. For puppies, it is important that the flavors you choose are labeled for specifically for puppies or for all-life-stages. Since the digestive tracts of younger dogs tend to be more sensitive, we recommend gradually mixing foods over a couple of weeks, slowly reducing the amount of the old formula and increasing the new formula.

Asked by: Aujo
Hi, Aujo. Thanks for reaching out and we are sorry to hear about your puppy’s diarrhea! Please know, there are numerous factors that can affect stool consistency in puppies. Intestinal parasites are a very common cause of diarrhea in puppies – if your vet has not already done so, we recommend connecting with him/her to ensure intestinal parasites are ruled out. In the meantime, we would like to learn more about your puppy, so we can provide the best formula recommendation based on her needs.

I received the wrong shipment for my 7 six week old lab puppies.  I received the roasted bison and venison but not the puppy formula. Is there much difference?

Asked by: Bruce
Hi, Bruce. While our High Prairie Canine Formula is very similar to our High Prairie Puppy Formula, it was developed as a maintenance diet and does not provide the nutrients your 6-week-old puppies need. We recommend you continue to feed an all life stages formula, (like the High Prairie Puppy Formula) to your puppies until 12-18 months in age as they are formulated to meet the nutritional needs of dogs of all ages. These formulas include added DHA to help aid in proper brain and eye development for growing dogs.

I saw the tour of your plant in the US. My question is does any of the ingredients come from or are processed in China before arriving at your plants?

Asked by: Scottiemom
Hello, 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. These ingredients (e.g., folic acid and taurine) are critical to our formulations and can only be sourced out of China. We believe omitting these ingredients would not be in the best interest of your pet.

What would be causing my 10 month old lab to still have occasional diarrhea even after switching to your grain free puppy food. Is there something else in it that she could be allergic to?

Asked by: Tina G
Tina, when dogs have occasional diarrhea, the most likely culprit is something they ate that isn’t part of their regular diet. This could be a treat or something they found in the yard or on a walk. Are you feeding your Lab any people food? It is possible for intolerance to a particular food to result in intermittent symptoms of digestive upset, so try to monitor what your dog is consuming. We suggest checking with your veterinarian about this issue.
