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 Chewy.com 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!
