My sister Sallie has had itchy skin problems ever since I’ve known her. She itches and scratches like crazy even makin’ big ole sores on herself! She’s also the sister with the tummy troubles. I swear she has a lot of problems! A few week ago, I heard my Lady talkin’ about tryin’ some new dog food from Canine Caviar for Sallie. She sure was excited ’bout it and was a goin on ’bout it bein’ a grain-free dog food, gluten free and holistic.
She also said it was an alkaline based dog food. What in the world is that? It’s all over my head and I don’t have a clue what I’m a sayin’. I just eat what my Lady gives me and leave all that important talk to her. So, lemme fetch my Lady to tell ya about it. The way she’s been a goin’ on about it, I’m sure she’ll be happy to talk to ya!
Here’s what my Lady says about Canine Caviar Holistic Dog Food
Molly is telling the truth when she says that I was, and am, excited about Canine Caviar. I want to take the best possible care of my dogs. I want them to be as healthy as they can possibly be and live a long and happy life. I was especially excited for a chance to try the Canine Caviar holistic Wilderness Grain Free dog food for Sallie. Sallie has had so many skin issues, along with her sensitive stomach, that we had been discussing switching her to a grain-free gluten free food. After reading up on the Canine Caviar, I was very impressed with all the healthy and nutritious ingredients, so we were excited to let her make the switch!
What is Canine Caviar Holistic Dog Food?
Canine Caviar dog food is an easily digested formula that will quickly settle digestive upsets, reduce itching, scratching, shedding and hotspots. Definitely sounds like just what we need! Canine Caviar also has a proprietary blend that offers a fermentation culture, which provides a potent Pro biotic result once it is in the belly. In turn, this helps them absorb and use the nutrition offered.
Canine Caviar was established in 1996 with their number one concern being to make the best product possible while keeping it affordable. Their number ONE priority IS and always will BE nutition!
Canine Caviar Wilderness Grain Free Dog Food
Over the past few weeks Sallie has been enjoying the Canine Caviar Wilderness Grain Free Dinner. The very first ingredient of the Wilderness Grain Free Dinner is venison followed by split pea. Most important, is what it doesn’t have! It DOES NOT CONTAIN wheat, potato or tapioca, ethoxyquin, no added hormones, gluten or GMO and no meat or poultry by-products.
Canine Caviar is a unique food in that it is Alkaline Based. This is important because our cell enzymes, and our pets, work best in a slightly alkaline environment. When switching to Canine Caviar it is different than switching most foods. There is no gradual working your way into it. With Canine Caviar, you jump right in cold turkey with the switch. Canine Caviar has a higher caloric content than other foods, which mean less goes in and less comes out.
Canine Caviar Synergy Vegetable Mix
Along with the Wilderness Grain Free Dinner, we also tried the Synergy Vegetable Mix. Doesn’t those veggies look good? Just check out these ingredients! How much healthier can you get?! The Synergy Vegetable Mix includes: Organic Dehydrated Green Garden Peas, Dehydrated Carrots, Dehydrated Sweet Potato, Dehydrated Green / Red Pepper, Dehydrated Pumpkin, Dehydrated Celery, Dried Tomato, Dehydrated Zucchini, Dehydrated Broccoli, Dehydrated Apple, Dehydrated Cranberry, Dehydrated Garlic, Dehydrated Parsley, Dehydrated Beet.
To serve, you just follow the chart on the bag for the size dog. For Sallie, this means 1/2 cup of the Synergy Vegetable Mix and one cup water. (I serve half of this with her morning meal and the other half with her night time meal). Stir and let the vegetables absorb the water. I do this approximately 30 minutes before feeding time. It smells amazing – like real human food! Then, I mix it with the Wilderness Grain Free Dinner kibble to make her meal even more nutritious! You can also mix ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.
Canine Caviar Holistic Treats and Buffalo Treats
Sallie has also been enjoying three different varieties of treats including Canine Caviar’s Buffalo Stix and Buffalo Jerky Flat. Their Buffalo treats are made from free range grass fed buffalo and are hormone and antibiotic free. The Dried Sweet Potato treats are made from 100% natural sweet potatoes grown in the USA!
Chow time! Sallie is LOVING the Canine Caviar Wilderness Grain Free Dinner and the Synergy Vegetable Mix. From the very first night, she has had a good appetite, ate her meal and had no trouble with the switch. As a matter of fact, her stomach troubles has really quietened down! You can also bet she loves her new treats! No objections from her there either!
I wanted to take a moment and show you the changes I have been seeing in her skin since starting the grain-free diet.
Sallie has some very itchy and oozing skin irritations. These have been going on for a while now. We no sooner get them well and more will come in their place. When in full blown allergy attack, they are horrible! It has been an ever present and an on going problem with her no matter what we have done. It is one of the main reasons I wanted to try a grain-free diet for her. A few weeks into switching to the Canine Caviar Wilderness Grain Free ALS Dinner, you can see hair is growing back. By the third picture, the hair is thin but filling in. She still has a few spots and a bit of flakey skin, but I am hoping with continued use we see continued improvement in her skin problems.
In my opinion, what has helped Sallie the most with the skin issues is the change to a grain-free diet. We are also pleased with the gluten free, as it has helped with her digestion and stomach trouble. Her eyes are bright, her energy level is up and she is getting her shine back. As of now, we are definitely believers in grain and gluten free! We are also happy to have found Canine Caviar, which has holistic, natural and nutritious ingredients we can trust!
Canine Caviar has all the nutritional and healthy ingredients, without added chemicals and fillers, that I am looking for in a dog food. We spend our time taking care of ourselves, eating organic, cutting out chemicals and artificial ingredients – why not our pets? They are a part of our family too and deserve the best! We want them to be healthy and live a long happy life! We are happy that we have made the switch to a grain free diet and we are even happier that we found a holistic dog food we can trust in Canine Caviar – no fluff, no fillers, just nutritious quality ingredients!
