Pacific Stream Puppy Recipe with Smoked Salmon

This egg-free recipe* gets all its animal protein from fish, meaning that it’s rich in the omega fatty acids that help keep skin healthy and fur smooth and shiny. Unique flavors from smoked salmon, vegetables, legumes and fruits in a small kibble size make it easy for puppies to enjoy the nutrients they need for overall vitality. Because of the guaranteed levels of DHA and perfectly balanced nutrition, this recipe is great for pregnant or nursing mothers and other adult dogs as well.

  • Sustainably Sourced Salmon

    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.

  • Small Kibble Size

    Small Kibble Size – Small kibble size is easy for small mouths to chew, while the crunchy texture helps keep teeth clean.

  • DHA

    DHA – This omega-3 fatty acid, provided by salmon oil, helps support brain and vision development in puppies.

  • Egg Free

    Egg-Free Recipe* – This formula is made without eggs or egg products, which may be suitable for dogs who have a sensitivity to eggs.

    *The facility in which this food is made also makes food that may contain other ingredients, such as grains and eggs. Trace amounts of these ingredients may be present.

  • Antioxidants

    Antioxidants – Vegetables, legumes and fruits, including sweet potatoes, peas, tomatoes, blueberries and raspberries, provide nutrients that help support your dog’s overall well-being, while guaranteed levels of zinc, selenium and vitamin E support the immune system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this food! My dog has food allergies and we tried a bunch of other foods - top name brands, and nothing changed - then we discovered Taste of the Wild and after a few weeks he was back to normal, no itching and now after a couple of months on it all his hair has grown back in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 4 month old Montana can't get enough I received my little staffy at roughly 7 weeks old and her previous owners weren't feeding her to par, i switched her to this formula mixed with a little bit of filtered water to help her chew and she can't get enough of it 3 months later. she devours it everytime i put the bowl down and begs for seconds! her coat is shining and energy is great, she's growing phenomenally and i couldn't be happier with her growth and coat glam in which i fully blame TOTW! thank you guys!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dalmatian LOVES this When trying to find a brand of food to feed our dalmatian, we spent A LOT of time researching to ensure that his food is low in purines but maintained a high protein source. Not only is Taste of the Wild all natural, our little guy LOVES it. I can't say how happy we are with this brand/food.

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 Puppy loves it! When we got our puppy he was on a low quality Puppy Chow. We changed that immediately to another brand of food which was grain free and had no byproduct. Something about the food didn't sit right with him and he had very soft poos. He's a husky, so he's already a finicky eater but on the previous brand food he hardly ate some days. After that bag was gone I decided to try Taste of the Wild as I had seen it recommended on Husky websites and forums. We brought home a bag of Pacific Stream Puppy and put a bowl of it next to his previous food to see which he preferred. He went straight for the Pacific Stream! He eats way more than he used to (but still within healthy amounts for his age and weight) and has nice, firm healthy poos. He is alert and bright eyed and ready to learn at all times! We definitely recommend this for any puppy. Our cats even prefer his food over their own and we're now switching them to TOTW with salmon for cats to encourage them to eat their own food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves it I was looking for a high quality, grain free, food for my Alaskan Malamute puppy and picked this up at my local farm store, where I trust the brands they sell. He loves it, it keeps him regular, and he's growing like a weed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My picky puppy loves this food I have a super picky german shepherd/husky mix puppy who always turns his nose up to kibble or food with chicken in it, and will only eat canned or fresh food that’s beef or fish flavoured which is a little bit more costly than I can afford, it’s so amazingly difficult to find a good quality puppy kibble that doesn’t contain a mostly chicken and I finally found this food! It’s the only kibble that he will eat and it’s affordable too! My only complaint is that I’m kind of unsure about potatoes in dog food, as it has low nutritional value for dogs and is used as a filler, this recipe would be better with oatmeal or rice instead of potatoes which are very good for dogs in comparison. Other than that I highly recommend this puppy food for people with picky pups

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barkley’s Fast Favorite! From the moment we brought Barkley home from the breeder, he ditched his old food and chowed down on his Pacific Stream Puppy food!! It helped firm up his stools, regulate his digestion, and has such a high nutrient content over his old food that he eats 2/3 of what he used to and is growing like a weed!! We love this food!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy loves it Prior to feeding my cocker spaniel puppy taste of the wild, we were feeding him blue buffalo, the puppy formula. After a few weeks of him eating the blue buffalo he would constantly be throwing up the food, sometimes up to three times a day. Once I switched him to taste of the wild smoked salmon my puppy has not thrown up since. Although the smell is not the most pleasant, it keeps him from throwing up and he likes the flavor. Also, the pieces of food are smaller and a more reasonable size for puppies. Thank you taste of the wild for a high quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from German Shepherd with chicken allergy I have been feeding this puppy recipe for time now. I was not aware that my pup had a chicken allergy and was really glad I found this recipe. Which he loves!!! Now he is thriving and is at the ideal weight. Couldn’t be any happier with my choice for his nutrition needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I have a Lab and since he was a puppy he has had allergies, it took a while to find a food he loves and improved his skin and coat. He was losing hair and his fur was dry, he had red dry flaky patches all over his belly and chest. After switching his diet to taste of the wild pacific stream I noticed his hair grew back, the red flaky bumps are gone and he’s not itching anymore! 5 Stars for this food!

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food for nursing moms!! My mama pug did fantastic on this puppy food during the second half of pregnancy and throughout nursing. The biggest difference I noticed is she did not lose patches of hair all over her body like many mama dogs do. That happened to her the three previous pregnancies. But not this time!! Her black coat is still as shiny as it was before she got pregnant and she hasn't lost any hair. This formula has taken great care of her. The puppies are now being introduced to it, and I expect them to do great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only the best for my pack I started feeding this to my sweet old boy when he started showing his old age. I started really looking into his food and found taste of the wild at my local farm store 6+ years ago. The food changed him! His coat had never been so beautiful in all our years together he never had such a beautiful coat. He’s passed. Now I have 2 purebred French Bulldog puppies. They will never eat anything but taste of the wild products. They arrived with another high quality brand but didn’t tolerate that brand which was ok because I had ordered 2 puppy flavors before the puppies arrived their TOTW was ready and waiting. The cat won’t eat anything else either he’s a big beautiful long haired B&W tuxedo solid muscle kitty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My golden loves this food We were originally feeding our pup Hills Science Diet when we noticed he was itching a lot so we decided to do some more research and found Taste of The Wild. He is in love with this stuff. It has helped him stop scratching so much and he has stopped all the nervous energy he seemed to have. We love this stuff and will always recommend this food to anyone who has pups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salmon & Lamb...Yum! Yum!! Rocky is now 9 1/2. He has thrived his entire life on TotW dog food. Started out with the puppy formula, then the adult formula. His coat, teeth, nails, etc...have always been so shiny & strong. A lot of that is due to TotW. Thank you for providing him with such a high quality product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Get Enough! I've been feeding my puppy this formula and he trully can't wait to eat. I've needed to add a special dish so it takes him longer to eat so he can enjoy it a little longer. He has great energy and a beautiful shiny coat. When he reaches adulthood, he will be eating the adult stage along with my other dogs who have eaten this formula for years! They are all in perfect weigh condition with no signs of aging. Still act like puppies!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My dog hated this formula I had my pup on the TOTW High Prairie blend and decided to buy a bag of the Pacific Stream to give her some variety, she wouldn't touch it. She would come up to her bowl, sniff around a little bit, and walk away. I ended up throwing a 30 pound bag of food out because she honestly wouldn't go near it and my brother's dog wouldn't touch it either. I'm not sure why she disliked it so much, we've put Salmon oil over her food since she was a pup and she goes crazy for it. Something about this food that she just did not like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only food my dog hasn't reacted too This is literally the only food that our 4 year old rescue GSD/husky mix hasn't had an allergic reaction too he loves the taste and does not let us forget when meal time is as he'll get extremely vocal until we feed him. We only wish it was a bit more affordable especially during this pandemic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My German Shepherd Loves Pacific Stream My German Shepherd has been eating Royal Canin German Shepherd for the past 18 months.

Fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Lab Pup Loves this food! Our 7 month old Lab loves this food. He has a beautiful shiny coat and has not had any digestive issues with this food. We have used both flavors of puppy formulas for him and he devours them. I am so happy we have him on this and will continue into his adult years with this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our puppies love this! We had our 4 month old lab puppies on Blue Buffalo and it upset their stomach and made them have diarrhea. So we decided to gradually change their food to Taste of The Wild Salmon. I’m so pleased with this brand and flavor because our dogs no longer have diarrhea or upset stomachs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Her favorite food! We try to switch between the flavors to give our pup variety but Pacific Stream is our girls favorite! She loves all things salmon, so it’s definitely her favorite. I love that it has only the best and important ingredients and that even my vet feeds her dog Taste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Millie loves this!! We got our Millie in February and started her on this food right away. We had never used this brand before so we didn’t know if she would like it. She loves it! She always wants more when her bowl is empty! We couldn’t be more pleased! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our pooch loves it, and we love his coat! We often recommend Taste of the Wild to our friends and neighbors. We’ve been feeding the salmon puppy formula to our Standard Schnauzer, Rocky, since he was two months old. As he grew older—he’s now three years-old—his coat became shiny and he’s filled out pretty well body wise. Rocky is a healthy, active pooch, and we love him dearly. He deserves the best. So, to us, Taste of the Wild tops them all. I am soooo glad that the PetSupermarket sales associate recommended Taste of the Wild to us.

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. 

Asked by: Meadowsmama
Hello, and thanks for reaching out! Our Pacific Stream Puppy Recipe may be a good choice for your Blue Heeler puppy, as the #1 ingredient is sustainably sourced salmon. Salmon is a high-quality protein source that is rich in omega fatty acids, which help maintain healthy skin and a shiny coat as well as overall good health. This recipe also contains DHA, a marine-sourced omega-3 fatty acid that supports brain and vision development in growing puppies and serves as an anti-inflammatory. Please know, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian to help find the most appropriate diet based on your puppy’s needs.

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.
