I also could never get over the weird smell and texture of the meat – like it’s been pickled or something. Anyway, this food’s a good step up from a lot of brands that are loaded with fillers and weird stuff but I was a little disappointed and somewhat skeptical of how “fresh” it really is. I felt like I was feeding my dogs a diet of straight hot dogs or something. I question whether it is a healthy long-term strategy for them but it does make good treats for training.

If we’re also careful to avoid all Excito-toxins (addictive food additives) our dogs quit eating when they’re full. My two will walk away from a raw meaty bone when they are full. I pick it up and put it in a ziploc bag and back to the refrigerator it goes til the next meal. But, you have to avoid all the hidden sources of MSG & aspartame. :-} Food for thought!

Chicken Soup for the Soul Dog Food receives the Advisor’s second-highest tier rating of 4 stars. I am wondering if I/3 of any 3 star + dog food mixed with 1/3 brown rice and 1/3 boiled meat ( whatever you dog can tolerate) and half teaspoon of raw virgin organic coconut oil on it would solve a lot of dietary problems. I am leaning towards that for my medium sized 8 month dog who has reached about 75% of his height and weight. Any objections on this strategy?

Try putting your dogs on an all grain free food. It did wonders for my three dogs one of which was scratching 24/7. After the grain free I continued to tweak her diet removing other ingredients I felt she was sensitive to. Now she only scratches in the Spring and Fall. As well as food sensitivities which are all under control now, she has environmental allergies. Good Luck.
