Product Review: Taste of the Wild Canyon River Formula for Cats

My dog says KitCat was anxious to try out a new food this week, so we ordered something for him to taste test! He picked the Canyon River flavor from Taste of the Wild. Did KitCat like it? Let's see...



The Canyon River flavor is a grain-free, canned food and features trout as its first ingredient, with fish broth, vegetable broth, and ocean fish following suit. There's even some smoked salmon in it, and also carrots, blueberries, and raspberries for antioxidant support. Added taurine provides support for healthy heart function and strong eyesight, too!


The food is a chunky variety, with little cubes in a thick gravy. The gravy provides nice moisture for the food, but is not at all watery. It's nice and thick. The gravy also doesn't take up a lot of the can (like many foods in gravy!); this is a canned packed with meat.

KitCat seemed to find it necessary to take out one cube at a time, set it on the floor, and then eat it. He's a good and tidy little kitty, and he ate everything he took out. We assume he has his reasons for this ritual, so we just let him do what he needed to do.




Made in the United States, Taste of the Wild is a brand that is family-owned and operated. In this day of megaconglomerates, we like the idea of a family business that takes pride in its products!

Taste of the Wild Canyon River formula is available on Chewy.com in both 3 ounce and 5.5 ounce cans, both in 24 can cases. And it's a good price for a premium product.

What did KitCat rate this flavor of Taste of the Wild? He gave it a three out of four paws! He ate every last bit of it, but he didn't do the backflips required for a four-paw rating. Perhaps it's the cubes that threw him off? In any case, he definitely liked it and we'll be buying it again in the future!

Product Review: Purina Beyond Wild Prey-Inspired for Cats

My dog says for this review we're testing out something from Purina. This isn't a brand we normally buy, but they've been upping their offerings with better quality foods and we want to support that trend. So, we opted to try something from the Purina Beyond line and selected their Wild Prey-Inspired Turkey, Liver, and Quail recipe canned cat food.



The Wild Prey-Inspired is grain-free, and void of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. There is no by-product meal, either. Made with nutrient-rich organ meat, turkey is the number one ingredient. That's followed by chicken, liver, turkey broth, quail, chicken liver, carrots, egg product, and chicken hearts. That's a better ingredient list than some premium brands!

This is a nice and moist pate. Not hard to mash up at all, it's almost as soft as kitten food. We really liked the texture, and so did Kitcat!



The Purina Beyond Wild Prey-Inspired is available on Chewy.com in a 12-can case with 3 ounce cans. With autoship, it's only about $15. The Purina Beyond line also comes in a variety of flavors, including duck, turkey, chicken, and more.




We were delightfully surprised with the Purina Beyond Wild Prey-Inspired. This brand is doing a good job at offering higher quality products than they have in the past. The overall trend is moving toward better quality ingredients in pet foods and it's nice to see Purina working to improve it's product line and offer more premium foods.


KitCat gives the Purina Beyond three and 3/4 paws! Almost a perfect score! He gobbled it up and ran to it as soon as we put it down. Good job, Purina! KitCat approves!

Product Review: Instinct Wet Cat Food Cups

My dog says we're handing over the blog today to KitCat to review something for the kitties in the audience! Today's product? Instinct cat food cups. Meeeeoooow!



Mr. Catster wanted to test out the chicken recipe and what kitty wants, kitty gets! We tried the minced recipe, even though we weren't sure what their idea of minced might be. We've notice that word can vary according to the manufacturer.


Anyway, we were quite pleased to see the minced really was what we hoped a minced recipe would be. It was tiny bites, not chunks, with a nice balance of meat and gravy!



The first ingredients on this variety are chicken broth, chicken, chicken liver, egg whites and ground dried peas. It also includes an assortment of fruits and vegetables (some of which you can actually see in the food), including pumpkin, spinach, carrots, artichokes, blueberries, broccoli, cranberries, cabbage, tomato, kale, and parsley. Most importantly in our book, no grain.

This food is made in the U.S.A. and KitCat really liked it a LOT. Like sooooo much! Like, our top rating is four paws, but we need more paws than that. Like, a lot more.

Instinct comes in several different flavors and we'll definitely be trying them soon (Chewy has a lot of varieties in stock). In the meantime, the Instinct minced chicken in savory gravy is a total winner!

Product Review: Canidae Pure Petite Small Breed Dog Food Trays

My dog says this week we're testing a product from a company we've never tried before: Canidae. We're familiar with the name and know it's a premium product, but we just haven't gotten around to trying it yet. So, no time like the present! Let's see what Canidae is all about!



Canidae says its Pure Petite Terrine Style Dinner is a French inspired recipe. In all of the products we've tried, we can honestly say we've never seen one before inspired by French cooking! We sampled the chicken and peas recipe, which they say is simmered in chicken broth. This particular line is especially for small breed dogs with sensitive stomachs. It's also a grain-free food.




We always pay special attention to the first five ingredients of any food and for this recipe they include chicken broth, chicken, turkey, chicken liver, and dried peas. (Pro tip: when looking at ingredients always pay attention to the details. For instance, this says chicken liver and a lesser food might just say liver.) The chicken is free of added hormones or antibiotics, as well. There's also a probiotic mix in it for healthy digestion.



To say our little pups really enjoyed this food would be a gross understatement! The photos below are out of focus because our Chihuahua was scarfing it up so fast and eating with such enthusiasm that we couldn't get the camera to focus with all his movement!



Overall, the Canidae Grain-Free Pure Petite Terrine Style Dinner with Chicken & Peas Small Breed Dog Food we ordered from Chewy was a huge success in our house! We like to find quality foods that the dogs love and are easy to serve, and this fits the bill very nicely! Our crew gives this food four paws out of four paws, for sure! Plus a whole lot of extra paws, too!

Product Review: Blue Buffalo Divine Delights for Dogs

My dog says today we'll be reviewing a product from Blue Buffalo. This is a brand we have learned more about in the last year, and we were anxious to try out a new product line of theirs. We chose the Divine Delights Variety Pack to test out.



First noteworthy thing about this variety pack is the packaging. This box has a peel pack opening so you can keep the trays in the box. Depending on how you store things, that might be helpful to you. We, for one, frequently have trays slide off of one another on the shelf so we kinda like this idea.




This product is prepared especially for small dogs and the protein-rich recipe includes only made in the USA ingredients. There is no chicken by-products or poultry by-product meals, and it's also free of artificial colors/flavors/preservatives, wheat, corn, and soy.



For the grilled chicken recipe, the first five ingredients are chicken, chicken broth, chicken liver, potatoes, and carrots. For the top sirloin flavor, it's beef, chicken, beef broth, potatoes, and chicken liver.

This pate is nice and moist, with a little juice and a bit of gelatin on top. What did the pups think?



Well, they loved both flavors. Gobbled down, bowl completely cleaned, loved. It's a no brainer to give the Blue Buffalo Divine Delights Pate Variety Pack from Chewy a top score of four paws! We'll definitely be trying more products from Blue Buffalo in the future!

Product Review: Zignature Limited Ingredient Canned Dog Food

My dogs says today we're taking a look at the Zignature Limited Ingredient line of foods. We're always looking for new wet foods to add to the dogs' rotation, so we'll be reviewing the turkey formula canned food for dogs. We've had a lot of success with the Zignature kibble, so we're excited to see what the dogs think of the wet.



This food is a meat-first recipe and the limited ingredient emphasis means that it lacks ingredients that can sometimes be problematic for dogs, such as chicken, corn, wheat, soy, and potatoes. The first five ingredients in this formula are turkey, turkey broth, turkey liver, peas, and turkey meal. The turkey is sourced from America and the food is made in the United States. 

We liked the consistency of the Zignature. Enough moisture to be appetizing and easy to eat, but not so much that it was gloppy. A very good balance. 



We let Alexander be our test subject for the Zignature canned food and he took to it immediately and finished it all. We gave him the food on it's own, but will put in on top of our Zignature turkey recipe kibble next time. 



The Zignature Limited Ingredient Turkey Formula from Chewy was a success and all the pups have since given it their seal of approval, as well. So, the crew at My Dog Says Woof gives this product four out of four paws up! The Zignature line has been a proven winner in our house and we look forward to trying more items from them in the future!

Product Review: Stewart Freeze Dried Dog Food

My dog says we like to try out new foods, so this week we're sampling something from a brand we're only vaguely familiar with. Stewart is a 40 year old company and their foods are made with human grade ingredients produced in USDA-inspected facilities. Those are all things that are super important, so we felt this was a product we wanted to learn more about. We've tried the freeze dried treats from Stewart in the past and the pups really liked them, so we were eager to test out the Stewart freeze dried food.



This freeze dried food is made with single or limited source protein from the states, and is made in the USA, as well. Both grain and gluten-free, it has flaxseed meal and salmon oil (which both possess natural omega fatty acids) to promote vitality, a shiny coat, and healthy skin. It also contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants to support health and wellness.



The freeze drying process apparently helps to retain the flavor and smell of the ingredients, while also keeping the the nutritional value of the raw ingredients intact. Also, although not a traditional limited ingredient food, it comes close. We normally don't give the full ingredient list, but we will here so you can see the quality of it.

Turkey, Ground Turkey Bone, Turkey Heart, Turkey Liver, Apples, Carrots, Lettuce, Watermelon, Egg, Ground Flaxseed, Inulin, Salmon Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, Blueberry, Cranberry, Dried Kelp, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Chloride, Whole Ginger, Whole Parsley, Whole Garlic, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Mixed Tocopherols (as preservative), Vitamin D Supplement.

We really like the versatility with this product. Note that it is not a food that requires hydration, so there's no need to add water; just serve as is. It can fed as a main meal, used as a treat, or even added to kibble for a nice nutritional boost. The pieces even tear easily if you wanted to make them smaller for toy sized pups (that's a pinky in the photo so you can gauge the size)! (I broke up each piece into three for the smaller dogs and left full size for my larger ones.)



All the dogs really, really loved these nuggets...a lot!

Chewy sells the Stewart Raw Naturals Grain Free, Turkey Recipe Freeze Dried food in a 12 ounce and 24 ounce bag. The 12 ounce is way bigger than you'd think and will last awhile if used as a treat. If you intent to fed as a meal or kibble supplement, you'd be better off buying the 24 ounce sized option (which is twice as much food but only 50% higher in price, so it's a better bargain).

We are pleased to give the Stewart Raw Naturals food four out of four paws! It was super easy to serve and every dog we've given it to (ours, the neighbors' dogs, family members' dogs, etc.) have absolutely flipped over it. We will be ordering this food again... and again...and again.

Product Review: True Chews Premium Jerky Cuts for Dogs

My dog says this month, we're checking out some jerky treats so we can give you the scoop. Sometimes with jerky, you're not sure what you're going to get: hard or soft treats. So, we like to try "jerky" whenever we can so we can find the best ones. So, without further adieu, we give you the 411 on True Chews Premium Jerky Cuts for dogs.


Ingredients:

True Chews come in a variety of flavors (turkey, chicken, sirloin, and duck), but we tried the turkey one. We especially like that turkey is the #1 ingredient in these. Plus, it's a fairly simple ingredient list, which we always prefer. We can break it down here: turkey, potatoes, vegetable glycerin, natural flavors, salt, distilled vinegar, natural smoke flavor, and then colored with paprika.

We're not thrilled with the salt and vinegar, but at least they're further down the ingredient list (for those who don't know, ingredients are listed in the order of quantity).

Usability:

Earlier we talked about hard and soft jerky, and these chews are soft. We like that a lot since that means no pointy, sharp edges. The pieces are big enough for large dogs, but easily torn into pieces for smaller pups. Great size and texture.



Origin:

Made in the U.S.A!

Cost:

These chews are a little on the pricey side, but you get a lot (the True Chews in turkey flavor is about $17 on Chewy.com and the sirloin flavor is only $14). The bag is 12 ounces, but we counted 39 pieces! And, as we said earlier, they're good size pieces. Depending on how you treat, these will last you awhile.

Rating:

We brought in a whole canine crew to test these out and all the dogs loved them, big time! Whenever we held out a piece, every dog would latch on to snatch it and then run off with it. They each devoured it in no time. Soooo, that said, we can say with a high degree of confidence, that True Chews are a doggie pleaser. We'll definitely be adding this to our regular rotation of doggie treats! Four enthusiastic paws up!

Product Review: Nutro Wild Frontier Multipack for Cats

My dog says KitCat loves to eat, so we put him to work this week on a new review for you! This time, our resident feline tested out the Nutro Wild Frontier high protein/grain free variety pack! Was this ancestral inspired diet to his liking? Read on to find out!



Nutro offers the Wild Frontier variety packs in an assortment of flavors. We choose the chicken and beef recipe packed with the salmon and trout recipe. Hopefully we picked right for Sir Cat.

This food is not only grain free, but it doesn't have artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Inspired by nature, the Wild Frontier line is high protein. If a meat rich diet is important to you, you'll love this food. It's also made in America.



The chicken and beef recipe lists chicken liver, chicken, pork broth, chicken broth, and beef as it's first five ingredients. The salmon and trout recipe has salmon, chicken, chicken liver, pork broth, chicken broth, and trout as its first ingredients. There's a nice balance of whole meat along with meat broth in these foods, so they're meaty but moist. They're also packaged in portion sized trays which means no need for food lids or refrigeration. Just snap the unit in half and use one tray at a time.


Overall, KitCat seems to be a fan of the Nutro Wild Frontier line of food for cats. And the variety packs are a nice way of trying new flavors without being committed to a whole case with just one recipe (KitCat did prefer the fish flavor to the beef, but your results may vary). We'll continue to try new flavors, but rest assured the Nutro Wild Frontier multipack is something we'll definitely be reordering soon. We give this product 3.5 paws out of four! Nice job!

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.

UPDATE! We have used this product for a month now and we absolutely see some visible improvements. Our dog's hair is thicker and softer and he hasn't pulled any of it out (which he always does in the spring and summer months). We are very pleased with the results of the SeaMeal!

Product Review: Zignature Multi-Protein Kibble for dogs

My dog says we tried out the Zignature brand of kibble recently and the dogs really liked it a lot (we've even added it to our regular rotation of dry foods). But, as with any favorite food, dogs (just like people!) can grow tired of the same flavor, so we wanted to try a different variety. So, this week we tested out the Zignature Zssential recipe.  Let's see what the pups thought!



The Zssential recipe is all about avoiding ingredients that can be problematic for dogs. That means this variety is a meat-first, limited ingredient food that contain no chicken, corn, soy, wheat, or potatoes. Therefore, it's a peak hypoallergenic and low glycemic recipe.


The first three ingredients on the Zssential are turkey, turkey meal, and lamb meal. We haven't ever tried food with lamb before and weren't sure how it would go over, but the pups gobbled it down. It's a good sized kibble, too, ideal for smaller or larger dogs. It's also made in the United States and we always love to see that!



A four pound bag of the Zignature Zssential Multi Protein Formula recipe is $12.99 on Chewy and we give it an enthusiastic four paws up! We're very pleased to have found another Zignature product to add to our rotation. So far, this has proven to be a great product line and we look forward to trying additional recipes and flavors in the future!

Product Review: I and Love and You Canned Cat Food

My dog says KitCat is pleased to bring you his latest review: I and Love and You canned cat food. His variety of choice? The grain free variety pack with three different recipes! Like any pet food brand with a savvy marketing team, getting the owners hooked is half the battle. We suspect that's why they came up with clever names like Chicken Me Out, Oh My Cod!, and Purrky Turkey! But fun names aside, was it a hit? Let's see.



The food was a good consistency, not too runny or soft and not to hard to mash up. It was easy for KitCat to eat and didn't change his stool.



As for the ingredients, all three flavors are grain free and that's important to us. This food is also void of artificial flavors and colors, and doesn't include gluten. For all three recipes, the first ingredient is whole meat. The first three ingredients for all flavors are listed below:

Chicken Me Out: chicken, chicken liver, chicken broth
Oh My Cod!: cod, chicken, chicken liver
Purrky Turkey: turkey, turkey liver, turkey broth

The rest of the ingredients are mostly a variety of fruits and veggies like spinach, apples, carrots, cranberries, and sweet potatoes, along with the usual vitamins and minerals. The recipe is designed for cats of all ages, from kitten up to adult and senior. 



We like variety packs because they allow us to try a few different flavors and KitCat loved two out of the three flavors (he usually loves turkey, but wasn't on board with this particular recipe). 

The I and Love and You Variety for cats pack sells on Chewy for a little over $13 with autoship. That includes 12 cans (4 of each flavor), each 3 ounces.



Out of four paws, we give this food an enthusiastic three paws up (since one of the flavors wasn't met with enthusiasm from KitCat, but that's not to say your cat won't love it!). So, in short, KitCat and Loved and It.

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: Wellness Simply Shreds Tasty Topper for Cats

My dog says we love our KitCat and we're always looking for new foods he'll love. That's why this week we tested out a product from Wellness that we hoped would be a good addition to his diet. Did his discriminating palate enjoy it? Did he meow with delight? Read on, friends!


So far, we've been fans of the products we've tried from Wellness, so we were very excited to test out the Wellness Simply Shreds Savory Side for Cats. The wild salmon and tuna flavors sounded yummy so we gave that one a whirl!

When we get these shipped from Chewy, we're always very pleased with the packaging. Since these are pouches, they could get pierced in transit. But, they're put in sturdy cardboard boxes to prevent any damage during shipping (inside the box is the traditional retail display box if you want to keep these looking nice in your pantry).

This food is formulated to give your cat a meat-based, ancestral diet. That means no nonsense and one of the simplest ingredient lists you'll find in a cat food: salmon, fish broth, water sufficient for processing, and tuna. That's it, just four ingredients! No fillers, no ingredients you can't pronounce, nothing your kitty doesn't want. 



KitCat has already started a routine with these. He laps up the broth first, then eats the meat. He literally comes running when he knows this is what I'm preparing for him. 

The portion size is good for a meal or a snack, depending on your cat's weight and appetite. Serve it as a topper for your kitty's kibble or on the side so your cat can keep his kibble crunchy! KitCat enjoys it so much, we put in on the side so he can just enjoy it without kibble getting in the way.




Overall, we are very pleased with these toppers from Wellness. We've added them to our autoship on Chewy.com and are happy that we can make our KitCat so happy! We give this product four out of four paws and look forward to trying more flavors in this line.

Product Review: Wellness Simply Shreds Toppers for Dogs

My dogs says we're always looking for new foods to spoil our dogs with, that's why we wanted to test out a pouch food for the pups this week!

Our KitCat has really enjoyed the Wellness Simply Shreds line for cats, and we just realized they have it in a recipe for dogs, too! Wooo! Will the pups enjoy it as much as KitCat likes the variety for cats? Hmmmm. Let's try it out and get our answer!



The Wellness variety we sampled was the Wellness Core Simply Shreds Grain Free pouches in the chicken, wild salmon, and pumpkin flavor. We read the ingredient list on all the pet foods we buy and we are generally partial to the ones that have limited ingredients. This is one such product. All you have is five things in this pouch, and you know what they all are (no weird words that you don't know if they're good or bad!). In this recipe, all you'll find is the following; chicken, chicken broth, water sufficient for processing, salmon, and pumpkin.

Who wants to try it? Looks like we have a volunteer! Thanks for stepping up, Alexander!



This food is marketed as a topper and we think that's the best use for it. It's ideal for small or large dogs and can just be served on top of kibble, or mixed in so there's a savory broth coating all the kibble pieces and meat and pumpkin throughout. The picture below just shows the product alone so you can gauge the meat to broth ratio.



Ok, sorry, we had to stop working on this review because Alexander was trying to take over the computer so he could add the Wellness shreds to his Chewy autoship. So, yeah, we have a winner here...big time! Alexander ate this up in record time!

We give the Wellness Simply Shreds grain free topper for dogs five out of four paws! Yeah, you read that right! Five! A paw for each ingredient! We're eager to try the toppers in other flavors, but in the meantime everyone here is really enjoying the chicken/salmon/pumpkin combo!
