A few weeks the very nice people at By Nature Pet Foods asked me if I might like to give some of their food a try. Well, I said yes right away, but mom wanted to do some research first. You see, she is awfully particular about what goes in this blue dog’s tummy (the occasional french fry aside…). So mom had a look at exactly what goes into By Nature’s Organic Chicken Formula for Dogs.
There were a few things she liked right away. First, it is made in the USA. Second, it has organic ingredients. Not all my food and treats are organic, but this is something mom likes when she can get it. Third, the very first ingredient is organic chicken. Not corn. Not mechanically separated poultry product. Just good old chicken :) And the next ingredient is chicken meal. NOT chicken by-product meal. Just chicken meal, which has lots of good protein.
Mom checked out the rest of the ingredients and she was happy. This food does have some grains (brown rice, oats, and barley), but mom does not mind if I get a little high quality grain in my diet. It doesn’t seem to bother me. By Nature does have grain-free foods too, including one with BACON!!
Okay, so now that By Nature has gotten mom’s approval, it’s time for my most favorite part of the review – the taste test!
As you can see, I was in a hurry to break open this bag. I have never gone after my other bags of kibble like this! I could even smell the deliciousness through the box they shipped it in! And mom thinks this food smell pretty nice too :)
Mom did not actually let me rip open the bag. She wanted to drag the torture out even longer. Meanwhile, even Linus could not resist what was waiting inside!
Mom did give me one or two kibbles for waiting so patiently, but that just made me want more!! As you may know, I don’t eat out of a bowl, so mom had to take even more time to hide my yum yum yummy By Nature kibbles in my fleecie tug toy. *Sigh*
The kibbles were a really good size for hiding in all the little braided spots.
And FINALLY the time arrived. Yes, I had to work to get every last crumb of kibble, but, oh, was it worth it!
So what did I think of By Nature’s Organic Chicken Formula for Dogs? I think I want more more more!
Because mom makes me work for all my food and uses kibbles as treats, she is very happy to find a high quality, healthful food that I am really excited to eat. She gives me a couple of different kinds of food and she’s is going to add this By Nature organic kibble into the mix :D I won’t work for all food, but I sure will work for this one!
Thank you very much to By Nature Pet Foods for sending me this super tasty food to review. Although we did not pay for our By Nature Organic Chicken Formula for Dogs, the opinions and ravenous consumption of kibble in this review are all my own.
