Review:

Lifes AbundanceLife’s Abundance, which appears comes from the same company as Flint River Ranch, looks to be primarily a food ordered off of the internet. For this reason, I had not been aware of it until it was brought to my attention recently. Now that I’ve looked it over, let’s see what’s in it…

Having chicken meal first is a good indicator that this food will have solid animal protein sources, and it does. Both chicken meal and catfish meal are included in this food, as well as eggs to give it a decent protein content.

The primary grain is rice, which is always nice to see due to its digestibility, but the use of brewers yeast is a disappointment since it is a filler with limited to no real value to the dog.

Flaxseed helps provide Omega fatty acids, and canola oil is a decent (if not top of the line) fat source.

Beet pulp is questionable as a fiber, as many that I’ve read say that it isn’t a very digestible source of fiber, and that there are many better ways to give your pet fiber in his food…this is a matter I typically leave alone b/c there really isn’t a consensus.

Lastly, the fruits and vegetables are well represented here, and that’s usually the mark of a good food. All in all, since I’m a stickler for convenience I probably wouldn’t buy it online, but I can’t fault those who do.



What’s good about this food….

Chicken meal is first, rice is primary grain, flax is present, catfish meal is 2nd meat source, fruits & vegetables present.

….and what’s not so good.

Brewers yeast, beet pulp is iffy fiber ingredient.
