Review Summary:

The nutritional label to indicates a relatively high amount of dietary fiber, while the rest appears to be decent. In the ingredients list, it contains wholesome ingredients of various vegetables and fruits, but do note several of them are too low in the ingredient list to be considered significant in this review. The first ingredient is a good straight up meat source, namely Salmon, and then further down the list there is Smoked Salmon. The minerals are “proteinate “for ease of body absorption. Overall, this dog food recipe is an excellent choice to consider for a growing puppy.

    1. My Sib puppy absolutely loves the puppy salmon from taste of the wild. I’ve been feeding him this brand ever since he was 8 weeks old and he has never turned his nose up at this food. And I know no one really wants to talk about stool, but he’s always been a real solid, good stool, which tells me he’s getting all the nutrients he needs from his food. I’d recommend this brand to anyone with a high energy dog. Best part is this food is grain free!!
