Product Review: Solid Gold SeaMeal Supplements for Dogs

My dog says this week we're excited to review something a little different: Solid Gold SeaMeal Supplements. Formulated to treat skin and coat, the digestive system, and immune health, these sound just like what one of our itchy family members needs.



When Billy came to us, he had terrible skin and was prone to throwing up. It's an issue we've been dealing with, trying to find the right solution. That means we're always eager to try something new.


Ingredients:

As with most supplements, many of the ingredients are things that have value and we don't fully understand what that value is. The first few items on the ingredient list here are dried seaweed meal, brewer's dried yeast, glycerin, dried potato, flaxseed, and lecithin.

The seaweed is all USA-sourced and is high in chlorophyll, iodine, and essential nutrients. It is also rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants which help support healthy skin and coat. The flaxseeds and omega oils also soothe and nourish the skin.

Since tummy and skin issues frequently go together, digestive enzymes are added to maintain a healthy digestive system. Plus B vitamins, zinc, selenium, iron and magnesium help maintain digestive and immune health.

These supplements are grain-free, and contain no gluten. So, they're great for pets with sensitivities or allergies. There are also no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Usability:

These chews are soft and easy to break apart. Although they could be given whole, we've been breaking each piece into four so it's roughly the same size as a piece of kibble. Then we still into into the bowl with the kibble and wet food. The pups eat them up; no issues at all.


Origin: 

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

The cost for autoship on Chewy.com right now is $22.79. Since these are something you'll have your dog on regularly, may as well get the autoship discount. There are 120 in a bottle, so it's a nice supply (lasting up to 8 months for small dogs or one month for dogs over 75 pounds). Not a bad price if it gets you a dog with better skin and fewer digestive issues! 

Rating:

We've been using the Solid Gold SeaMeal supplements for two weeks now and we think we've seen some improvements. We're going to update this review in another two weeks and give it a rating then. A full one-month period will probably yield the most accurate results.

Product Review: Stella and Chewy's Freeze Dried Cat Food

My dog says KitCat is taking over the blog today! We love to try different freeze dried foods, so we were eager to check out Stella and Chewy's Sea-licious Salmon and Cod Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Cat food. Meow wow!


Ingredients:

The first five ingredients in this particular recipe are salmon (ground with bone), cod (also ground with bone, cod liver oil, pumpkin seed, and potassium chloride. This food is made with sustainably-sourced ingredients and is 98% wild caught salmon and cod, organs, and bone. Lots of raw food nutrition.

Usability:

Freeze-dried foods need to be mixed with water to make a meal, but I used these nuggets as treats instead. Initially, I was concerned over the size; they looked too big for a cat. I thought I'd have to break each piece into two, but I was wrong. KitCat took each piece and was able to chew it or break it apart fine. If you give them as treats, be sure the water bowl is full.



If you choose to mix it with water for a meal, the nuggets are a little easier to work with than the traditional powdery freeze-dried food. The consistency is nice, but you can make it firmer of smoother depending on your cat's needs.

We also like that the pouch sealed easily for storage, but didn't find the "easy open" very easy.



Origin:

Made in America, in Stella and Chewy's own kitchen.

Cost:

Freeze-dried foods are always a little pricey, so you have to expect that. It's just how it is. The 3.5 ounce bag of Stella and Chewy's Sea-licious, Grain-Free, Freeze-Dried food is currently $9.49 at chewy.com.

Rating:

KitCat loves freeze-dried foods, and Stella and Chewy's Sea-licious is no different. This food was a success and earns four paws up from our resident feline!

Product Review: Nutro Wild Frontier Pate Cat Food

My dog says we put KitCat to work this week and asked that he test out Nutro Wild Frontier Pate for cats. What did our homekitty think? Let's see...




Ingredients:

We got the variety pack of the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate, which included two flavors: chicken recipe, and chicken and duck. It's a grain-free food and there are no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, so that's a plus.

The chicken recipe has chicken, chicken liver, and pork broth as the first ingredients; whereas the turkey has turkey, chicken liver, and pork broth.




Usability:

These trays are marketed as "perfectly portioned" and snap apart so one side can be used for breakfast and the other side for dinner.


I thought this was a great idea, but was skeptical that the sides would snap apart cleanly. I also worried that snap would tear the foil and cause it to peel back on both sides. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The tray snapped apart easily and the foil was easy to tear to separate the two sides (I still do it gingerly, just in case, though). In short, it works and works well! 



We really like the two portions, so the "leftover" side doesn't require refrigeration. It makes mealtime easy and when I have someone watch KitCat it makes mealtime simple for them, too! 

Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A case of 12 twin packs (that's 24 portions) of the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate is currently $17.09 on chewy.com. That gives you 6 packs (12 portions) of the chicken and six of the chicken/duck combo.

Rating:

KitCat really liked the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate. He preferred the chicken recipe (he'll eat duck, but it isn't his favorite). The chicken is available on it's own, too, so it's not necessary to order the variety pack if your kitty has a preference on flavors, too.

Since we got this variety pack, we have reordered the Nutro in the salmon and tuna recipe. KitCat really likes that, too. There's also several other recipes, as well, that we plan to test out. We give the Nutro Wild Frontier products four paws up. We can't wait to try the other flavors!

Product Review: Zignature Kibble for Dogs

My dog says we always like to try out new kibble, and today we're here to share our thoughts on Zignature. An acquaintance of ours uses this brand, so we had heard of it through him, but it wasn't a product line we were familiar with otherwise. So, we were eager to test it out.


Ingredients:

Zignature comes in a variety of flavors such as kangaroo, lamb, whitefish, trout and salmon, pork, and catfish. We went with something traditional that we were fairly confident the dogs would like: turkey.

The first three ingredients in the turkey recipe are turkey, turkey meal, and chickpeas. We prefer foods where meat is the first ingredient, so that line up is a thumbs up for us.

Usability:

This is a medium size kibble. We like that the size is versatile so we could use it for our smaller dogs and medium size one, as well. We took a photo with a pinky finger so you can gauge the size.


Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A 4 pound bag of the Zignature turkey formula is currently $10.99 on chewy.com. A good price for a good food.


Rating:

Since we initially sampled the Zignature, we have already bought a second bag (a 13.5 pound bag!). It was a big hit with all our dogs, and even a dog we babysat also loved it. We're pleased to give this kibble four out of four paws up and have already put this kibble into our regular rotation.
