Product Description

Flavor Name: Whitefish and Potato Recipe | Size: 4-Pound Bag

At Back to Basics, every one of the ingredients we use contributes to the health and well-being of every dog. That's why we never include grains and always include real organ meat, which is what dogs would instinctively choose to eat in the wild. It's nutrient dense and rich in key vitamins. And dogs just naturally love the taste of organ meat.

The kibble size is small enough for smaller breed dogs.

Flavor Name: lamb;liverSize Name: 4-Pound Bag Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Since the description did not include the nutritional analysis I included a picture of the label under user images. Basically 24% protein and 14% fat. The list of ingredients includes as top three; lamb, beef meal, and potato. I have a small dog that I have been feeding it dry cat food (in general it has a better quality ingredients and protein content). If you are looking at grain free foods the back to basics is a middle of the road product at a fairly premium price. The dog likes it just fine, but it will not eat it out of a hand as a yummy treat. Wetted down or in his bowl works just fine. Note that if you ever see lower protein levels advertised as a plus, check the recommended serving sizes, as you may have to make up in volume what the food lacks in concentration. For my 15lb adult dog the recommended is 1 ¾ to 2 ¼ cups per day. It is recommended for all life stages by the American Association of Dog Food Nutrient Profile people. I highly recommend that you check Evangers EVANGER'S 776008 Grain Free Chicken, Sweet Pot, Pumpkin Dry Dog Food, 4.4-Pound and Acana Acana Pacifica Grain Free Dry Dog Food, Acana - 5 lb as alternatives

Flavor Name: lamb;liverSize Name: 4-Pound Bag Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When the Spudette worked for one of the big box pet stores, she was a big proponent of the grain free foods after being converted to that line of thinking by pet food company reps. Some of the arguments for grain free are: obesity issues, food allergies, less kibble needed. less stool production, better digestion, skin/coat improvement. When our bichon Evie developed allergies to foods with corn and wheat, we switched to grain free and/or fish formulas. The change in diet helped noticeably. Not all dogs, however, need a whole grain diet and their humans sometimes try these foods if there are issues with some of the factors listed previously.

Our current two dogs seem to like this Back to Basics formula as demonstrated by their appetites. I made sure to mix with the current food before giving them the new food "straight." Yes, this food costs higher than many foods, but keep in mind that your dog will eat less. What we often do is mix a good, but less expensive food, with a pricey food that we like.

First ingredients: lamb, beef meal, whole POTATO, peas, pea protein, tapioca etc.

Flavor Name: lamb;liverSize Name: 4-Pound Bag Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This dog-tasty grain-free dry food only gets four stars, due to its current priciness. I insist on feeding my significant dog friends grain-free dry food and have for about six years. Depending on availability, I have scooped up three different brands, securing 30 pound bags sometimes locally, and others times through mail order, including Amazon. This looks like certain flavors of the others, smells similarly to the tried and true, and has feeding guidelines the same as the others. Nutritional analysis and ingredients are also close. However, it is markedly more expensive by at least a dollar more a pound, and in some cases 50% more than that. When one doles out at least thirty pounds a month, that is a shopping factor.

Flavor Name: lamb;liverSize Name: 4-Pound Bag Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Both of my dogs enjoyed this food, including the one who is picky about what he eats. It's a bit expensive for me to buy regularly, but based on how my dogs liked it, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Flavor Name: lamb;liverSize Name: 4-Pound Bag Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've recently begun to try to find good quality foods for my dogs to eat, and was pleased by the ingredient list for this product. It's grain-free and lists the top three ingredients as lamb, beef, and potato. The pellets are small, which is easy for my small dogs to eat.. but too bad they won't. They'll eat it with wet food on top, but if I mix this with other dry food they will pick out this food and spit it out.

Our dog likes this food just fine, but we cannot see any added benefit at twice the price of the other healthy foods we have been feeding her.

Flavor Name: lamb;liverSize Name: 4-Pound Bag Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Despite it being a little pricey and of average protein, carb, and fat content, the Back to Basics dog food is a clear winner in our house- so much so, we can't get our dog to go back to her old dog food (Blue Buffalo). However, this just may be due to the introduction of something new.

This dog food is predominantly derived from a combination of plant based protein and contains no filler though package contents does indicate Lamb as the first ingredient. Primary source of carbohydrates is potato. Of significant importance (to us at least) is that the ingredients and production are sourced to the USA. When we completely transitioned our dog, we noticed no negative impact on her digestion. We did notice (anecdotaly), an increase in water consumption we do not believe is linked to the weather change.

Overall, the Back to Basics wins so far.

Flavor Name: lamb;liverSize Name: 4-Pound Bag Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I gave this food a recommendation in a review that I wrote for another low-calorie food (Hill's Ideal Balance Slim & Healthy Natural Chicken & Barley). For background, I've been buying Hill's Prescription Diet low-calorie food for my pooch off and on for years now.

Calorie-wise, this clocks in at 297 calories/cup versus 244 in her prescription food (and 289 calories/cup in the Hill's Ideal Balance linked above). So, not as low, but also available without a vet's prescription. My pooch Niki did prefer this over her normal prescription food, and would tend to eat it first when I put the two down side by side. I also put this down next to the Ideal Balance, and she would pick this one first every time.

Ingredient-wise, I really like what I see. The prescription food is mostly grain, whereas this has meet as the first ingredient. Nothing in the list stood out to me as something that I don't want to give Niki, either.

Just a note about the cost: something that is a little shocking to me - the price is higher than the Hill's prescription food. This currently costs about $4.50/pound if you get the 4-pound bag. When you jump to the 12-pound bag, it's closer to $3/pound. I pay about $3/pound for Hill's _prescription_ food at a vet (for an 8-pound bag...larger bags are cheaper per pound...and I never expect the vet's office to be a place for bargain shopping). So, the 4-pound bag is better for keeping the food fresh versus a larger bag, but the cost is definitely on the high side, IMO.
