Help Choosing Canned Dog Food!
by Kevin Aronson
My wife and I just rescued two Australian Shepherd puppies from the wild and are having a hard time finding a canned food that they will eat.
We started off with EVO, which they love but with the recent news of PG merger, we are going to stop feeding them this.
We then tried Taste of The Wild canned, which they did not like. Next we tried Merrick, they like this a little better.
I was thinking of trying Weruva but am a little nervous that they get from their plant in Thailand..... Any suggestions?====================
Hi Kevin -
How terrific to be able to give these two puppies a fresh start in a loving home!
Just keep doing what you're doing, and experimenting with the premium dog food brands. Each brand has a variety of recipes, and different meat proteins. You may find they prefer a chicken or fish based dog food, rather than a dog food high in beef content, for instance. How about a game meat such as venison or buffalo? Our pooch won't have anything to do with game meats .. but your pups may love it! :-) Trial and error.
Regarding Weruva Dog Food. We have made initial contact with the Company, and will publish a complete dog food review once we've had the opportunity to speak with them in detail.
However, by all accounts, their canned dog food appears to be an excellent product! According to their website, all their dog foods are manufactured in their own, very established, family owned "human food" facility, with extremely tight quality controls in place. They claim not to use any dog food ingredients imported from China.
If you still feel uncomfortable with the pet food manufactured in their Thailand plant, take a look at Weruva's selection of "Kobe Beef" and "Kurobuta Pork". All recipes are sourced in the USA and produced in a USA pet food facility (Note, we have yet to determine the dog food manufacturer of these formulas).
Weruva canned dog food is not cheap, but certainly appears to be a superb all-natural dog food. Great to see they use many organic dog food ingredients too!Important Reminder:
When feeding canned dog food exclusively
, take care to read the dog food label, and ensure the product is intended as a "Complete" diet, as opposed to "For Supplemental Feeding Only".
We hope this helps, and good luck with your new furry friends!
