Solid Gold Holistique Blendz Adult Dog Food Review

As with all dog food recipes the first thing we are going to look at are the first five ingredients. The first five ingredients are a good indication of the quality of the dog food. When looking at the first five ingredients you want to make sure there is plenty of meat and grains are minimal.

[tab:First Five Ingredients:]

Solid Gold Holistique Blendz Adult Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Oatmeal
  2. Cracked Pearled Barley
  3. Millet
  4. Ocean Fish
  5. Potatoes

Oatmeal is the first ingredient and is a decent quality ingredient. If your dog has allergies to Oatmeal Gluten one should avoid this ingredient. We would prefer to see a meat ingredient as the first ingredient.

Cracked Pearled Barley is the second ingredient. Barley is a decent quality grain. If there are grains we would prefer to see this grain over others.

Millet is the third ingredient and comes in the form of a grain. Millet is a decent quality grain.

Ocean Fish is the fourth ingredient in this recipe. This ingredient is inclusive of its water content. Meaning that once the water is removed and this ingredients becomes a dried ingredient it will weigh significantly less, thus making it fall further in the ingredients list.

Potatoes is the fifth ingredient and is a decent quality ingredient that provides additional carbohydrates and protein.

    After looking for a quality holistic food for senior dogs, I have been feeding my two boys — an 11-y/o Schipperke and 8-y/o Shiba Inu — the SG Holistique Blendz dry for about a month. They eat it readily, which is especially remarkable for the Shiba who is a picky eater. No real problems (e.g., loose stools) switching from previous food (Eukanuba, sorry to say!). They also have good energy levels, firm stools, and I believe their coats are improving; i.e., not shedding so much. The Shiba blows a coat like you wouldn’t believe, and that problem has seemed to improve since starting this food. Plus, I think it has helped minimize the Schip’s flatulence issues of dropping SBDs at night — eww.

    However, I am concerned about the meat content in the food; it seems rather skimpy. I am hoping the dogs are getting enough quality protein. I’m toying with the idea of adding in one of the higher-protein-content foods to boost it a bit. The Schip’s muscle tone seems to be diminishing, and the Shiba seems to want “something” even after being fed, given attention, exercise, grooming. Maybe he’s got a meat craving? Not sure, but I’ve noticed a change in his demeanor since eating the SG HB.

    Both have heart murmurs and the Schip is being treated for congestive heart failure with meds. Can anyone recommend high-quality dog food brands and types that are suitable for seniors with these types of health issues? Interesting that the Schip’s regular vet prescribes Royal Canin Early Cardiac Diet, while his cardiology vet says any good senior food is fine and the cardiac diet is not necessary.

    Are foods marketed as appropriate for “all life stages” truly so? Conversely, what defines a food appropriate for seniors?

    Thanks for any guidance on the matter, especially the food brand/type suggestions, for my elderly fellas 🙂
