About three years ago, after extensive research on my mom’s part, we switched our three dogs over to grain free dog dood. For the first 8 years of Tasha and Maia’s life (and the first two years of Cooper’s), we were feeding them what we thought was a “premium” brand of food. Turns out, that food was filled with stuff that really wasn’t all that beneficial, and just a little bit of the stuff that was. Over the years, we’ve tried a variety of brands of grain free dog food, with mixed results. Recently, we had a chance to try out Holistic Select Grain Free Adult & Puppy Health Salmon and Anchovy & Sardine Meal. Not only is it grain free, but for dogs who are sensitive to (or just don’t like) chicken and turkey, it’s also poultry-free. Instead, it relies on three different types of fish, as well as other nutritious ingredients, to provide optimal nutrition to your dog.
What’s in the Holistic Select Grain Free Dog Food Bag?
You already know what’s NOT in it, but what’s in the bag that makes Holistic Select such a great source of nutrition? Well, for starters, the first ingredient in this flavor is Salmon, Anchovy & Sardine Meal. It’s important that the protein source is first on the label, because that means it’s the most predominant ingredient. Holistic Select then adds in wholesome ingredients like pumpkin-which is great for your dog’s immune system- and other fruits and veggies. The end result is a food source with at least 28% protein and loads of vitamins and minerals to support your dog’s health.
How do Dogs Feel About Holistic Select’s New Salmon and Anchovy & Sardine Meal?
Cooper is our food hound. He’ll eat just about anything, and Holistic Select Grain Free Salmon and Anchovy & Sardine Meal was no exception. He scarfed his breakfast and dinner down like he was starving (he’s 100 pounds, and clearly NOT lacking in food), then went looking for more.
Tasha is slightly more discerning than Coop when it comes to her food. Although she tends to eat nearly as fast, she often leaves a bit behind for later. With the Holistic Select food, she ate it all in one sitting. In fact, she loved it so much, she went looking for more in Maia’s bowl!
Maia is our picky eater. Not only is she choosy about what she’ll eat, she’s also a grazer. She likes to eat a little, then bark and growl all day long at anyone who comes near her food. She’s an old lady, and it’s like her form of entertainment. Kind of like sitting on the front porch yelling “get off my lawn!” While she still left a little in her bowl to provide her with her daily entertainment, I did notice that Maia ate a lot more of the Holistic Select right away than she typically does with other food.
Overall, I’d say that the Holistic Select Salmon and Anchovy & Sardine Meal was a hit with my three fur-kids. Need more convincing? The Dog Food Adviser ranked it 4 out of 5 stars in overall nutritional value.
