Dogswell Dog Food
Dogswell Dog Food Review
Dogswell is a Los Angeles based company that was founded in 2003 by Marco Giannini. Originally, the company produced natural dog treats, but it has since branched out to incorporate several different varieties of both wet and dry foods. According the the company’s website: “At DOGSWELL®, we care about what we feed our own pets and know that you do as well. All DOGSWELL® products are made from premium, natural ingredients with one catch – unlike most food available for pets, DOGSWELL® products come in a variety of functional formulas that are healthy for your dog and cat. All DOGSWELL® products are made from natural meat and poultry with absolutely no added hormones, processed gluten, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Products are free of wheat, corn, soy, and flour. DOGSWELL® food and treats do not contain BHA, BHT or Ethoxyquin, artificial preservatives that extend the shelf life of a product.”
The company produces four main lines: grain- and potato-free dried foods, grain- and potato-free wet foods, chicken and oats dried foods, and grain-free “sweet potato stew” wet foods. The foods that are both grain-free and potato-free are ideal for those pooches that have packed on a few too many pounds and are in need of a diet. Instead of being packed full of carbohydrates, these foods contain protein heavy ingredients, such as chicken, turkey, garbanzo beans and peas, that will make your dog feel full and satiated, without adding to his weight problem. For dogs who are already at a healthy weight, the sweet potato stew or chicken and oats lines are both good choices. Sweet potatoes contain a range of essential nutrients, including beta carotene, vitamin A, calcium, iron and potassium. The chicken and oats foods come in a range of varieties: one low-fat, one for maintaining healthy joints and one for a healthy coat, skin and eyes.
Dogswell prides itself on using prime ingredients that are also ethically sourced, where possible. So if you want your eggs free range and your chicken cage-free, this brand might be up your alley. While all the key vitamins and minerals are added to these foods, what’s not added are unhealthy preservatives, colorings, flavorings and other nasties.
