Pacific Stream Puppy Recipe with Smoke-Flavored Salmon is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 331.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really pleased with this food First food our lab was able to have without suffering from diarrhea and some vomiting. After visiting 2 different vets and an emergency trip to the vet and switching dog food brands multiple times due to vet recommendations I decided to try this food as it was grain free. Immediately eliminated his issues. The vet wanted us to switch to a different foot but I'm glad I tried this one at half the price of the Rx food. Food is still a little pricey but worth not getting up 4-5 times a night to take him out. Just wish it was available in my area in 30lb bags as I can only find it at one retailer and only in 15 lb bags so Chewy to the rescue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dog food for labs We’ve always fed our dogs Taste of the Wild (grain free) and our veterinarian suggested we not feed our dogs a grain free diet anymore because of the potential yet rare risk of heart issues. So we switched to Purina One Pro Plan, and almost immediately both of our dogs were constantly scratching and chewing on their legs. Plus they both got ear infections. Our puppy had diarrhea for weeks and it almost instantly went away when we changed back to this brand. Their skin, coats and digestive systems are so healthy on this food. Especially the Smoked Salmon Grain-Free. Thank you Taste of the Wild!! Kim and Reis Ennis + Violet and Nova

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our lab and poodle love it! We started our lab out on pacific stream after I researched out no grain foods and found this to be one of the best and at a reasonable price compared to other top brands. He was doing great on it but our vet wanted us to change food to something with some grains because she felt he was gaining too much weight. Well he became very gassy and would get sick once in a while so after 6 months we switched back to the pacific stream and never looked back. Needless to say we have a different vet and now a standard poodle and both are doing great with this food. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a top quality food for their pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results and he loves it I switched my now almost 9 month old lab/golden mix puppy to Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream Puppy Formula from a chicken based food a couple of months ago because of some digestive issues and itchy ears. Both problems seem to have cleared up nicely. Also, while he clearly did not love his last food, he gobbles this food down happily. His coat is super shiny, and he is growing appropriately for his age. We have been so happy with Taste of the Wild that we plan to transition him to Pacific Stream Canine Formula when the time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the rest We had trouble from the start getting our field English Springer Spaniel to eat from the moment we brought him home. No matter what we did he wouldn't eat the food that our breeder had been feeding him. However, we did notice he liked going after our cats' fish based food. The first one we tried caused vomiting and diarrhea even after several weeks. Finally, we switched over to TOTW Pacific Stream and it has been a huge difference. He eats regularly, his stools maintain firmness, and no vomiting at all. His overall health has been great and plenty of puppy energy. While the cost is certainly a factor it is worth the peace of mind of having a happy healthy dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn’t be any happier I have been feeding my 5 month old European Doberman - Buddy, the Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream for puppies and he’s been enjoying every single bite of it. He has a very sensitive stomach and really just couldn’t eat anything else. And boy have I tried. This isn’t very accessible to me (live in Switzerland...), but it’s totally worth the hassle. No more diarrhea for him! He’s finally getting to a good weight and his fur is as shiny as it can get. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing she will eat! Started her out on pacific stream puppy, as she is allergic to chicken she got older we tried a couple other salmon formulas from other brands. She just wasn’t having it! So we put her back on Taste of the wild Pacific Stream ...she has beautiful skin & coat and stays very lean, but most importantly still seems to love it!

Has anyone fed this to their blue heeler pup ? He has dandruff and he get coconut oil along with anti itch medicine & we’ve order fish oil. But thru research I’ve found fish / omega 3 to be great. So curious about this food.

Hello, I was wondering if you had heard of any pets having very strong smelling urine while on the Pacific Stream Puppy food? If so, is it due to the salmon? Thank you

Asked by: Kristen
Hi, Kristen. We have not had any reports of this food affecting the odor of pets’ urine. Eating salmon has been associated with a change in urine odor in humans, but this hasn’t been studied in pets. Abnormal smelling urine can be a symptom of a urinary tract infection. We recommend consulting with your veterinarian to determine the cause of the odor.
