Nature’s Recipe Adult Lamb

Nature’s Recipe Adult Lamb dog food is very grain heavy and could use another meat ingredient. We do not like seeing sodium bisulfite complex in dog food & Vitamin K can cause liver issues in dogs. Lamb digest is an extremely low grade meat and contains non-decomposed animal tissue and can contain hair, horns, teeth, hooves and feathers. Tomato pomace is a controversial ingredient and used to harden dogs stools.

    Choline Chloride is a B vitamin. Choline Chloride can promote liver and kidney fat metabolism; Choline Chloride or acetylcholine synthesis based body, thus affecting the transmission of nerve signals. Choline is also required for in vivo synthesis of motioning source of methyl. In many natural foods contain Choline Chloride, but not enough to meet the modern concentration on the animal feed industry, the need for rapid growth. Therefore, the feed synthesis of Choline Chloride should be added to meet their needs. Lack of Choline Chloride can lead to fatty liver, slow growth, reduced egg production rate, mortality increased and so on.

    My dog absolutely loves this. It’s great for his skin, his coat and his weight! Everyone knows Corgis are notorious for being overweight but thanks to Natures Recipe my lil guy is svelte and healthy!

    This is by far and away the best dogfood I have ever fed. I too, have a Corgi that is prone to skin problems and allergies, even feeding the best and most expensive “all natural” dogfood. My Border Collie’s coat literally glows, and both dogs are maintaining the perfect weight. The bonus is, they both LOVE this stuff!! The cats love it too, and I have to hide the extra bags I keep on hand so they don’t tear into them! My only regret is I have to drive about 80 miles to the nearest store that sells Nature’s Recipe, so I have to buy several bags at a time. That being said, I will gladly go that distance and extra expense to be able to feed a dogfood that is so perfect for my pets.

    Our last 2 dogs are rescues. Their fur was stiff and they pooped a lot. A gal at Petsmart said instead of vitamins , feed them Natures Choice. I did and stools reduced, fur became soft and they like it. It’s a bit pricey but if you want a Cadillac , why feed your best friend “Ol Roy”.
