Dogswell is a 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.

The meat content is definitely good, comprising the first two ingredients. The high spot that flaxseed has is also encouraging as well. The use of apples, blueberries, sweet potatoes, carrots and peas also gives the impression this isn’t another run of the mill food.

If you can find it, I’d recommend the use of this food and their treats as well. Just remember, this is not a grain-free food and thus those who are adamant about their dog having no grain in their diet will need to look at another food.

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 acceptable.

….and what’s not so good.

Nothing to note.
