Nature’s Recipe Healthy Skin & Coat Venison Meal & Rice Recipe

We do not like seeing animal digest in any dog food as it is difficult to tell what this ingredient actually is. We hope that the pea protein is not in this food solely to bring the protein level up. Menadione sodium bisulfite complex is an ingredient that needs to be removed from all dog foods. We consider this and average dog food and grain heavy.

    My pit bull suffers from extremely dry patchy skin and allergies. She has even developed skin lesions that took antibiotics and steroids to clear up. I spent a lot of money at the vet and was completely vexed by the problem. The vet said she probably had allergies and recommended expensive testing. I decided to change her diet first as I learned online that dog foods made with corn ingredients can cause a variety of problems. I tried a number of different sensitive skin dog foods including Science Diet, Avoderm, Simply Nourish, etc. She kept getting the lesions. I finally tried Nature’s Recipe Venison and Rice. Within two weeks I noticed a difference. Her skin was softer and lesions cleared up. I am going to keep her on this food for the rest of her life.
