Take the True BLUE Test and see how the ingredients in your dog or cat food brand compare to the ones in BLUE.
it’s kibble, the moisture has been removed – first ingredient is chicken – the health of the dogs, the stool, and the performance of the dogs is the best indicator of the quality of the food – after almost 4 decades of competition, including trying many different brands of dog food making claims of being the best ( which by and large proved to be over inflated, to be polite ), following the results of independent research, being aware of the feeding practices of many times over champions, and winning the odd championship myself, I’m quite aware of what good dog food is – I could likely count on the fingers of one hand the kibbles that are suitable to feed a competitive racing sleddog
I have fed my 6 lb yorkie Meadowfeast for a number of years now after switching to it because I felt that Earthborn was a reputable company. She is now refusing her kibble. Completely stopped eating for days when I offer to her. I had her completely tested at vet with CBC profile, xrays with nothing showing up wrong in her medical profile. Her pancreas, liver and kidneys show up normal. She was slightly dehydrated but that could be from her throwing up and simply not drinking as much water. She has been lethargic and her coat is not shiny anymore. We recently purchased a new bag of Meadowfeast from Amazon. I keep it in a refrigerator in our prep room, always have refrigerated the kibble as I purchase a big bag. She gets 1/8 cup in the morning and another in the afternoon around 4pm. I have never had a problem with her eating, she has never been sick a day in her 9 years of life. Vet checked every single year, has her teeth cleaned, normally an active dog with plenty of personality. All of that has changed now. Nothing has changed in her daily routine. She gets plenty of exercise/walks, lots of attention as she is our only dog ( rescue from a puppy mill). Only thing that changed was a new bag of Earthborn Meadowfeast. I purchased a can of wet food, Taste of the Wild, to see if she would eat that. She wolfed it down! so I thought maybe she is just tired of the Meadowfeast. I just ordered Earthborn wet food for her, now I’m afraid to feed it when it arrives. I really think it is the new bag of kibble from Earthborn and after reading all the comments here about other dogs getting sick on it I have to believe the company is being irresponsible by not considering there may be a problem with their food ingredients. Now to find another food for her that won’t kill my sweet little yorkie that has been a complete joy to both my husband and I for the last 6 years we have had her. I will cook for her if I have to without hesitation. We did take the vet’s recommendation and I cooked chicken and rice for her for several days. She ate that with no problem so we thought she may be over her “spell” whatever that was. Offered her the kibble and she refused to eat it. It is a wake up call to read all that has been posted here. Should be a wake up call to everyone when a company does not respond to complaints or issues you present to them about their food.
