Anyone heard of this stuff. i went to go check out the Solid Gold Wolfking, but they dont carry that one, only the other solid gold stuff. The lady pointed out the Timberwolf organics Dakota bison formula and said it is a higher quality food. Any feedback on that?

here is the list of ingredients:

Fresh Bison Meat, Salmon Meal, Millet, Sweet Potatoes, Oats, Flaxseed, Carrot, Watercress, Spinach, Celery, Parsley, Fennel Seed, Wild Salmon Oil, Atlantic Kelp, Alfalfa, Potassium Chloride, Amaranth, Currants, Cranberries, Pears, Figs, Thyme, Anise Seed, Ground Cinnamon Bark, Fenugreek, Garlic Pieces, Sunflower Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Apples, Chicory Root, Spirulina, Choline Chloride, Lecithin, Probiotics: (Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Casei, Lactobacillus Lactis, Bacillus Bifidum, Streptococcus Diacetilactis, Bacillus Subtillus), Taurine, Mixed Tocopherols (a source of vitamin E), Lysine, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamine, Methionine, Carnitine, Niacin, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Iodine Proteinate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Biotin, Folic Acid, Pyridoxine (a source of vitamin B6), Cobalt Proteinate, Papain, Yucca Schidigera Extract.

The ingredient list looks good to me. Maybe if I still fed kibble, this would be a brand I would consider. I think that brand of food was rated as one of the best by the Whole Dog Journal.

Ok, so i thought i would go to my vet toay and ask if they have heard anything about this stuff, or had any experience with it. I did not expect what i got...a 20 min lecture about how the foods they sell ARE high quality and how organic foods are actually bad for my dog. Grrrr, too many conflicting opinions.

The key, Tom, is "The foods THEY sell", honestly of course your vet is going to recommend what he will profit from.

Just from my point of view, before I started Chicken soup (for example as an organic food) my dobe had dry skin and bad dandruff. After chicken soup, MUCH better. (After raw ALL the way better!) That was proof enough for me to go organic.

Let us know how it works with him, okay. Hey BTW, is his skin still in good shape (or still improving) from the allergies he had?

Tom is that from the Timberwolf Organics or the Wolf King? I have also asked about the Wolf King as some people I know swear by it & it has done the same stuff for their dog. They have a half German Sheppard half Rottweiler. He had very bad problems with his "socks". They were always red & flakey & itchey. They gave him the Wolf King & it put an end to all that.

It hasnt been tool ong, but i have an update on the food. King is digesting this stuff VERY well. No more gurguling coming from his stomach, very little gas, and he gobbles it down like there is no tomorrow. The best part it is smells good. There is nothing worse than a dobe kiss after they just ate their nasty smelling food:help_up_2
His coat is becoming even more shiney, and his stool is becoming more solid. I am very pleased with this food.

That's how I feel after Ava eats a meal of tripe. Ewwww.....

I'm glad to hear that King is doing well on this new food. How's the allergy injections going?

The inections are going well. I know that most of the "success" we have seen so far is because of the anti-inflamitory medication he is on, but we are now getting away with a lesser amount of medication without scratching. So im very pleased. His hair is coming in very well, and all of his sores are gone. Overall, im happy. Even if the injections dont work i dont care. king isnt scratching, he doesnt have to wear a cone/e-collar, and best of all, i dont have to yell at him for scratching...lol
