Dogswell is a relatively newer player on the market and can be difficult to find. However, like many new foods, they are emphasizing quality ingredients over cheap filler. The price tag shows that as well.
I’ve focussed on the Vitality Chicken & Oats recipe for this review, but all foods from Dogswell are similar, including the Happy Hips range.
The chicken content is definitely good, comprising the first two ingredients in both regular and meal form for extra protein. Oats and barley are top of the range as far as grains are concerns. The use of apples, blueberries, sweet potatoes, carrots and peas also gives the impression this isn’t another run of the mill food. The high spot that flaxseed has is also encouraging.
If you can find it, I’d recommend the use of this food and their treats as well.
I can’t seem to find any difference between their Happy Hips and Vitality brands other than the color of the packaging, so much of a muchness really.
What’s good about this food….
First two ingredients are meats, good inclusion of fiber with fruits and veggies, grains included are good.
….and what’s not so good.
Nothing to note.
