Love this Product?

Great food for wt loss.
| Andismom

Our dogs love this food. We have dogs that like to eat and tend to gain wt. So this is great we can give them the same amount of food but it has a lot less calories. In Dec. we adopted a dog That weighed in at over 30 pounds. Her wt should be between 14-18pounds. We used this dog food and a product called Fruitables. By July she weighed 17 pounds. We stopped the fruitables at that time and it is now Nov. and she is down to 14.3#. I highly recommend this product. The other brands of healthy wt dog food only have a few calories less per cup. I do wish you made the small bites in the 30# bag. Another plus is we've been using this food for several years for our dogs and I have never seen a recall. Keep up the good work.

This is the lowest k calorie healthy weight food and really makes a difference. Please consider selling in smaller bag sizes again. I'd love an 8 pound bag...
