Product Review: Halo Vegan Canned Food for Dogs

My dog says the pups have taste tested one of Halo's canned food for dogs and we're here to share the results. See what the canine crew has to say about Halo Vegan Garden Medley.



Ingredients:

As can be seen from the name, Vegan Medley is a meat-free food. The first three ingredients are vegetable broth, chickpeas, and potatoes. There's also carrots, spinach, peas, and dandelion greens. There is no animal protein, animal fat, or dairy in this recipe. Spinach, olive oil, and flaxseed provide essential fatty acids and pea protein helps to build strong muscles.

Usability:

This is a slightly grainy pate. I suspect some of that "grainyness" is from the chopped up chickpeas. It's also sticky. If you use a spoon to scoop it out, the food sticks to the utensil and you have to wipe it off with your finger. It won't come off on its own, even when you tap the spoon on the bowl pretty hard.

The most noteworthy thing about Vegan Medley is the smell. It reminds me of Thanksgiving stuffing. Maybe it's the dried rosemary? I'm not sure, but It made me want stuffing that's for sure.

Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A 12-can case of the Halo Vegan Medley currently sells for $41.18 on Chewy.com, so it's three bucks and change per 13 ounce can. A discount kicks in if you auto-ship.

Rating:

We've tried the Vegan Medley kibble in the past and the dogs really liked it. That's why we were eager to try this recipe in canned. However, it was met with a mediocre response. Half of the crew ate it, and half wouldn't. It kind of felt like feeding a kid brussel sprouts. You know it's good for them, so you want them to eat it. But they're not doing cartwheels when you serve it up.

It's a high quality food and when using it, it's nice not to have to worry about food safety issues for the meat. That said, we give this canned food 2.5 paws.

Product Review: Blue Buffalo Wilderness Pate for Cats

My dog says today we're eager to share our thoughts on one of Blue Buffalo's products for cats. KitCat has his tastebuds at the ready, so let's get started.


Ingredients:

Blue Buffalo offers a pate, variety pack in three flavors: salmon, chicken, and duck. Each are grain-free and have solid ingredient lists, with meat as the first ingredient.

The duck has duck, turkey broth, and chicken liver. The chicken has chicken, chicken broth, and chicken liver. And the salmon has salmon, fish broth, and chicken liver. Each recipe also contains potatoes, but no corn, wheat, or soy. There are no chicken or poultry by-product meals in any of these foods.


Usability:

This is a nice, soft pate with an enticing broth. It's easy to eat and smells really enticing. It's similar to a kitten food in that has lots of moisture. Texture is ideal for kittens, adults, or seniors.

Origin:

Made in the United States.

Cost:

The variety pack comes in a case of 12 cans, four of each variety. It's the "kitten size" cans, three ounces. The current cost for the Blue Buffalo at Chewy.com is $12.99, just a little over a buck a can, so that's a pretty competitive price for a high quality food. It's a little less with auto-ship.


Rating:

This is the second Blue Buffalo product KitCat has reviewed and he's really liked both of them (see his previous review on Blue Buffalo Tasty Toppers). KitCat ate with enthusiasm and he finished everything in his dish. This was a great food and it was clear he really liked it. How many paws do we give the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Pate Variety Pack? Four! Four paws up for sure.

Product Review: Evo 95 Cat Food

My dog says KitCat is back at it! He's been tasting food far and wide to give you his take. Today, we'll be giving you the scoop on one of the many products from Evo.

Billed as an "ancestral diet" that is similar to what cats eat in wild, Evo is rich in protein, but void of grains and potatoes, It's formulated to maintain lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight. There's many varieties, but we tried the Evo 95 Grain-Free Chicken and Turkey Recipe in Gravy.
