Product Review: Solid Gold Mighty Mini Dog Kibble

My dog says this week we've been taste testing Solid Gold dog kibble. Since we've got little ones in the canine crew, we opted to try the small breed kibble. It looks like this product is in the middle of a rebranding, so you'll see that our photos says Lil' Boss but the photo when ordering online says Mighty Mini. Rest assured, it's the same product. So are the pups Mighty Mini/Lil' Boss fans? Let's see.

We opted for the turkey and hearty vegetable, grain-free recipe. As always, we like to look at the first five items on the ingredient list. In this recipe, it's turkey, turkey meal, chicken meal, peas, and chickpeas. Good stuff.

This variety also boasts 20 superfoods in it like blueberries, cranberries, pumpkin, lentils, carrots, kelp, broccoli, and almond oil. There's also other veggies including apples, lettuce, celery, beets, watercress, parsley, and spinach. Monounsaturated fats such as olive oil, salmon oil, and canola oil are also in the mix which are good for a healthy skin and coat. Lastly, the recipe is void of corn, soy, and wheat so it's a good option of dogs with allergies.

Now onto size. It's hard to believe all dog kibble used to be the same size back in the dark ages. Luckily, there are now a great selection of small breed kibbles on the market. The Mighty Mini is, indeed, mini (similar in size to a cat food); perfect for chihuahuas, poms, and other little breeds. (For reference, that's a pinky finger in the photo above.)

So, all of this is well and good, but will the crew eat it?

Yes! Alexander enjoyed it and the cat even came over to try to take it from him. Only one caveat on the size if you have a fast eater, the tiny kibble size might be problematic since a pup can fit a bunch of this into his/her mouth at once. We recommend using a slow feeder dish if you have a furry friend who's inclined to scarf his or her food.

The Solid Gold Mighty Mini turkey recipe is available on in a 4 lb and 11 lb bag. There's also four other flavors available. The pups here at My Dog Says Woof give this food a rating of three out of four paws up! We look forward to trying the other flavors soon!

Product Review: Zignature Salmon Recipe Limited Ingredient Canned Dog Food

My dog says today we're trying out the salmon formula of Zignature's canned food line for dogs. Zignature is a brand we discovered about a year ago and we've tried several of their products with much success. Zignature offers a lot of canned food varieties on and we decided to test out the salmon flavor. Was it a hit or miss? Read on for the fishy results.

We've tried several fish-flavored foods in recent years and salmon always seems to be a flavor that goes over well (and it supports healthy skin and soft coat). It's generally flavorful, without being overly fishy. When we opened the can, you could smell the salmon but it wasn't overwhelming. Basically, smelly enough to be enticing! (Plus, the salmon is sourced from the Northwest United States and the food is made in America so that's something we like a lot!)

Since this is a limited-ingredient recipe, you'll find some simple ingredients along with traditional vitamins and minerals. The first five ingredients are salmon, fish broth, salmon meal, peas, and chickpeas. This recipe has powerful antioxidants and low-glycemic carbs. The peas and chickpeas are also healthy sources of fiber. The Zignature salmon recipe is also hypoallergenic and is void of the most common doggie allergens such as corn, soy, wheat, chicken, and dairy.

Alexander is tired of waiting to eat, but we'll get there soon...

We really like the consistency of the salmon recipe, as well. It was soft, but not gloppy. We're not a fan of canned foods that are hard, so consistency is something we pay attention to. So far this looks and smells like good stuff...but is it yummy to the tummy?

Our pups say yes, yes, yes! They like the salmon flavor way more than the chicken formula that they tried in the past. (That's actually a good reminder to try different flavors as it sometimes takes a little trial and error to find what recipes your pup prefers!) In short, the furry reviewers here at My Dog Says Woof give the Zignature Salmon Formula Canned Dog Food from four out of four paws up, up, up!
