    This food is EXCELLENT!
    My dog didn’t like it too much ( he prefers other flavors ) but that doesn’t change the *great* quality of this food!

    I just bought this food. I normally feed my dogs BLUE Buffalo. These ingredients seemed comparable. Unfortunately my dogs don’t like it 🙁 Although I bought a big bag, so they better get used to it because it is pricey!

    I have a two year old shih tzu and I’ve had him on Wellness since he was a puppy. He really enjoys this brand of dog food and is very healthy!
    Thanks to Wellness
