Authority Puppy Chicken

The first 2 ingredients in this dog food are meat, which is great. Then they overwhelm this food with low grade corn. Puppies need ingredients that their bodies can digest and use. This is not the corn you see in your local grocery stores. There are over 18 types of corn grown in the USA. It is also very light on Vitamins and minerals. This is a very poor choice of food for your puppy.

    My puppy loves this food and has never had diahrrea or anything else bad related to this food. Yea, there’s corn it. Ok. But I find this food way better than the majority of the commerical dog food out there. I’m not wasting money on $40 per 17 lb bag of dog food. I, financially, cannot. This food doesn’t break my wallet and have had absolutely no problems with it. His stool is normal and he’s a happy, healthy puppy.

    My puppy was having the WORST runny poops until I switched to this brand. We tried at least 2 other kinds before. She loves it and I love it because it doesn’t leave a hole in my pocket.

    I just switched my 12wk old pitbull to this food from 4health and literally overnight I noticed a difference in his stool! No more runs…for now! He loves the taste and seems to be happier and more energetic. I’m definitely sticking to this food unless something doesn’t agree with him…and it’s easy on the wallet, considering I’ve got 2 little ones also! Thanks!

    Glad to hear your dogs doing good. But I would watch his eyes and coat. Corn is very hard for dogs to digest. Their digestive system is only 2/3-3/4 the length of ours and we even have a hard time digesting corn. The corn they se in dog food is “fed grade” which is a much lower grade than you would see in your local grocery store. Personally I do not fed my dog any food that contains corn and my dogs eyes get leaky if I fed him any dog food with rice in it.
