Finally, a kibble I can feed my pups. Stella and Chewy’s newest kibble has no potatoes or legumes which are currently linked to the heart disease Dilated Cardiomyopathy. While still not from one of the five companies that does research, the new food comes in beef and lamb and chicken.
The beef does not contain chicken fat. We avoid all chicken products with our girl Ruby Tuesday. And, as it should, meets AAFCO feeding requirements.
This new food even adds Taurine. Here is the ingredients list from the bag I special ordered at Wag N Wash today.
Beef, lamb meal, oatmeal, pearled barley, pork meal, beef liver, beef fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), pumpkin, quinoa, natural vegetable flavor, beef kidney, beef tripe, beef bone, sunflower oil, flaxseed, salmon oil, coconut flour, salt, pumpkin seed, organic cranberries, organic spinach, organic beets, organic carrots, organic squash, organic blueberries, inulin (from chicory root), thyme, sage, rosemary extract, tocopherols (preservative), dried kelp, choline chloride, potassium chloride, taurine, calcium carbonate, zinc proteinate, iron proteinate, copper proteinate, manganese proteinate, sodium selenite, calcium iodate, vitamin E supplement, thiamine mononitrate, niacin supplement, d-calcium pantothenate, riboflavin supplement, vitamin A supplement, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid, dried Pediococcus acidilactici fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried Bifidobacterium longum fermentation product, dried Bacillus coagulans fermentation product.
Our pups eat Stella’s raw Tantalizing Turkey and sometimes beef for breakfast.
I’ll use this kibble as a base and add some additional lean meat, yogurt or pumpkin and seasonal fruits/veggies – not because I need to, but because I like to.
So we’ll be chugging down our huge bag of Farmina, and on to Chewy’s kibble at least for a while.
