Best Food Ever

Julia H.-Maplewood, MN Dogs: 2

2 Features: High meat content and grain-free

Review: This is the best food I’ve ever fed my dogs! The scent of the food is more like a meaty dinner than a typical processed dry dog food, and it seemed like my dog agreed. She could hardly contain herself at dinner time! No ”suspect” ingredients or potential allergens for my dog. I would highly recommend this food to maintain a healthy dog!

Love the large kibble

Adriana G- Minneapolis, MN  Dogs: 1

Name of Product: N&D Chicken + Pomegranate by Farmina

2 Features: vitamins + minerals, lots of natural nutrients

2 Benefits: easy to digest and healthy poops. Nourishing ingredients

Con: no cons

Review: We have a 130 pound Bernese mountain dog mix who is 5 years old. When she was young she had a variety of allergies. She does not now. She loves this food, it makes her thick fur shiny and healthy. She loves the large kibble and the way it tastes and how easy it is to digest. She does not get much exercise for a dog her size and this food helps keep her weight in check. Please read up on the ingredients, it is very reassuring to know that we are giving our dog quality food, vegetables, fruit. She feels great, an appetite is satiated after eating a bowlful. this is good for a pet with allergies or digestive issues as well as a dog that may be too chubby

Dogs LOVED it!

Melissa A- Robbinsdale, MN Dogs: 2

Name of Product: Farmina CHICKEN & POMEGRANATE ADULT

2 Features: Grain-Free, Healthy Ingredients

2 Benefits: Dogs loved the flavor, Mealtime was a hit

Con: none

Review: This dog food is great, and our dogs loved it. It was more fragrant that some other foods we have tried, and this enticed the dogs to come running to their bowls. I like that the ingredients are never frozen and that there is a nice balance of fruits, vegetables and meat in the kibble. Our senior female is very picky and has a sensitive tummy. She couldn’t wait for us to feed her this kibble. The size and shape of the kibble was great, too. The senior would crunch away, and I knew that not only was she getting great quality food, she was helping her teeth and gums in the process. Our 5 year-old male loved this kibble as well. This is a great kibble that I would gladly feed them again!

Food that respects my dogs for the animals they are!

Jade F.- St. Paul MN Dogs: 2 Cats: 2

Name of Product: Natural & Delicious Chicken and Pomegranate

2 Features: high quality meat, and incredibly low carbohydrates

2 Benefits: my pickiest eater LOVES this food, and my beagle mix that lives for all things food doesn’t get too many carbs with this food, keeping weight in control!

Con: I keep this food on hand at all times and keep the cost down by mixing it with other healthy kibble.

Review: Natural & Delicious dry food for dogs is my new favorite food to give my dogs. There is not one unhealthy ingredient in this food. The texture is impressive to me; it is a dry food, but also has a moist quality to it, which helps one of my dogs that takes some time to chew his food. Grain free works best with both dogs, and this variety has hit the mark. Thanks for offering another great product.

Tailing Wagging in Excitement!

Marilyn K- South St Paul, MN Dogs: 1

Name of Product: N & D Natural & Delicious

2 Features: Grain Free and Fruit Flavors Mixed In

2 Benefits: She loves the taste and has turmeric which is good for her arthritis

Con: none

Review: My senior dog is losing weight due to not eating as much. Emmie Lou loves the smell and taste of the food, which encourages her to eat better than she was previous to introducing the new food. The Natural & Delicious food has turmeric in it which is an anti-inflammatory and is good for her arthritis.

She really likes this food!

Dan H- South St Paul MN Dogs: 1 Cats: 0

Name of Product: Natural and Delicious Ancestral Grains

2 Features: Low grain, GMO free

2 Benefits: She loves the taste, and has lower stool volume

Con: It is expensive, so I mix it with another brand to stretch it out.

Review: Mabel really likes this food, She starts eating as I pour it into her bowl. It smells so good it could be mistaken for human food. I usually free feed, but with this food I can’t because she will keep eating to the point of overeating. I would recommend that everyone try this for their dog, if it fits into their budget.

My dog loves this food

Robin S- Minneapolis Dogs: 1 .Cats: 1

Name of Product: Farmina low grain

2 Features: It smells like something a dog would love.

2 Benefits: Seems very fresh.

Con: We decided to go with the low grain even though my dog usually eats grain free and his poops are really messy. I combine it with Fromm surf and turf. but think I think I might have better luck combining it with Solid Gold Sun Dancer. Will try that next.

Cannot eat it fast enough

Bob H- Burnsville, Minnesota Dogs: 2

Name of Product: N&D Ancestral Cereals dog food

2 Features: Low Grain OMG Free

2 Benefits: Healthy and they love it

Con: The pellets are large but my Miniature Pincher, still eat it. A smaller kibble would make it easier for small dogs to eat.

Review: My dogs cannot eat this food fast enough. I think they would eat the whole bag if they got a hold of it. It’s maintaining their weight and the have a lot of energy.

Smells good – like real food

Theresa D- Minneapolis, MN Dogs: 3 Cats: 2

Name of Product: N & D Dry Dog Food Low-Grain Formula – Spelt, oats, codfish, orange

2 Features: Low Grain, Codfish, healthier ingredients include vegetables and fruit

2 Benefits: Smells like a food, fish protein 30%, no artificial preservatives, no corn

Con: Expensive to feed my dogs. Omega 6 versus Omega 3 ratio is a surprise, I’m not certain its appropriate or better than its supposed to be.

Review: I am not certain as to why this food is considered cruelty free. It’s hard to expect more protein from a kibble. It smells like food. It is unclear to my why a ”ancestral grain” would be better for my dogs. Wolves / dogs are greater omnivores than cats, but would still require a higher protein level. I like the convenience of kibble but am uncomfortable that it’s a healthy food choice.

Thanks for your helpful feedback and comments.  Here are answers to some the items you pointed out.  

Farmina’s Cruelty Free Commitment  – We do not conduct laboratory tests on animals. Our research is aimed at proving the functionality of the products we make and is based on working with pet owners and their animals under normal conditions in their home environment. When we test foods, the dogs and cats eat the food in their homes surrounded by their loving family.
 
In the selection of our suppliers, we always give priority to companies that obtain their supplies of raw materials in a humane and environmentally friendly way. For example, the fish we use are not farmed, but taken by offshore fishing methods that safeguard dolphins and all other creatures in the area

 Ancestral grains – can be better for dogs because they are not genetically modified, and thus will be less likely to be a allergen.  (in addition all Farmina’s grains, fruits and vegetables are all GMO – free and organic) 

Animal ingredients and protein – 60-70% of the ingredients are animal sources.  This is 1.5 – 2.5 times higher than other premium pet food kibbles. All the N&D formulas provide 92-97% of the protein from animal ingredients, rather than plants, which would be considered more biologically appropriate for a dog.

Omega 6 to 3 ratio- the formula you fed was: Omega-6 Fatty Acids* (min): 1.60%; Omega-3 Fatty Acids* (min): 2.30%. Other formulas in the line range from @  2:1 – 3:1 Omega  to 3 ratio.  Over my years of working with foods, I have felt these ratios are great for improving health in pet.

Thanks again for your feedback.  If I have not provided clarity or you would like to discuss any of this further, I would be happy to talk with you. Feel free to phone me at 612-729-7748 if you’d like. – Dawn
