Our dogs are small poodle mixes, rescue dogs, weighing 10 lb., 10 lb. and 7 lb. We follow the Sojo instructions mixing water to food in the recommended 2:1 ratio. We feed twice a day. I've spoken to customer service a few times with questions and they've been super nice, although they didn't always have helpful answers.
Impressions: The food smells great (even to me!) and the dogs go bonkers for it. They love every bite.
Sojo's has variable consistency - some bags were a powdery consistency - creating a mush when mixed with water. These are the best bags - everything becomes part of the thick mush.
Other bags have big chopped pieces of veggies/meat - these are not my favorite bags. The added water hydrates the pieces and then creates a ton of watery gravy - too much fluid to feed the dogs.
After a month our dogs each lost a pound of body weight. They had no body fat to lose so it was a bit distressing. They warn that fat/weight will come off a dog after switching to Sojo's and then an appropriate amount of weight will be gained back. Our dogs never gained it back. I was feeding the amount recommended for dogs up to 12 lbs (which should be more than enough food for our pups).
Despite this, for an hour or two before each meal time all three pups were clearly in distress - shaking, quivering, starving. This went on for many weeks before I decided there is something lacking in this food. (I didn't know if this was excitement for the yummy food or actual weakness/lack of energy, so I gave it some time.) I even tried feeding more than the 12 lb. dog amount - enough to supposedly sustain a much bigger dog - and still they were quivering and weak (and our dog food budget was taking a big hit).
I should mention that during this time, in an attempt to maintain a Sojo's-only diet, I bought Sojo's Grain-free and added some of that to the turkey blend in their bowl. The Grain-free deserves a review of it's own, but let's just say it's pretty smelly. It's smells strongly of broccoli. Not bad thing, just smelly.
I have slowly transitioned them back to a mix of the two Sojo's and Natural Balance (ratio of 2:1). Now our pups are happy again, they aren't shaking and panicked at meal time.
The claim that dogs will have better teeth and better breath... Sojo's breath does seem a bit nicer (due to the parsley I assume) but their teeth were not cleaner. I imagine a professional cleaning plus feeding Sojo's exclusively might result in teeth staying cleaner. Feeding this food doesn't change the current cleanliness of their teeth (though their customer service rep tried to spin it this way).
Sojo's has high water content so our dogs urinated constantly. That's a good thing for their kidneys, but a bad thing for our little guy who can't hold his pee. He had a million accidents while on Sojo's.
Sojo's has high fiber content so our dogs became poop machines. Non-stop poop makers. This is good for their anal glands, but it really gave me and our septic system a run for its money (we dispose of their feces in the toilet). Tell-tale was the comment by our groomer when we picked up our little 7 pounder: "He did a human size poop. How did he have all that in him?" Exactly. That's Sojo's.
And the worst, most telling, example that Sojo's didn't provide adequate nutrition... About 4 hours after eating, our little guy would go out to the dog yard and chew on old Sojo's poop. There are visible bits of undigested veggies in Sojo's poop (from the Grain-free) and he would pick them apart and eat them. He was starving. Now that Natural Balance is mixed into his meals he no longer eats poop. He's happy and content. [Only on an all-Sojo's diet did he have this pica behavior. The veggie bits are still in the feces, but he has no interest and no need to eat them. Another spin from customer service: "The dogs love Sojo's so much I've heard they will eat the poop." Now we know the pica behavior is driven by hunger, not passion.]
I equate Sojo's to the old saying about eating Chinese food "two hours later, you're hungry".
In any case, I think we're all very happy now with the mix of food. They have lots of yummy veggies, some turkey and the kibble that sustains them. I wish Sojo's was enough, but it's not. I'm glad to have found a solution without giving up Sojo's altogether. And so are our dogs.
UPDATE 072013: We've been feeding this combination for a good while now and we just took one of our dogs in for a dental cleaning. The vet was surprised to realize our dog has a bunch of teeth that are loose but not diseased. She said the dog needs something to chew on for resistance, to help strengthen the teeth. She recommended we feed a raw chicken wing as a meal once or twice a week. This is a vet who sells ONLY Sojos food. So, be aware that feeding an extremely soft, wet raw food may affect your dog's health both positively and negatively.
He used to be voraciously thirsty to where I worried about his kidneys and now he's at a healthy weight, good energy and a healthy thirst and hunger level. Grateful! We are lifelong customers.
Also, for some reason the turkey blend is the one that sits easiest on his tummy. The lamb and other red meat blends give him diarrhea and in my opinion don't have the pleasant smell that the turkey one does. Each dog has their own metabolism and digestion and allergies, so I expect this is unique to my puppy. ❤️
When I ordered the Sojos, I had high hopes. I was looking for a dog food that would save weight when we travel with our dogs for the holidays. On the surface, Sojos seemed like an ideal solution: raw and freeze dried. From the various pictures and reviews, it looked fantastic.
The reality of Sojos is very different from the pics you'll find in reviews here. I don't know if I received a bad bag or something, but what I received was about the same as onion soup mix. The number 1 ingredient is supposedly "Freeze dried turkey". As you can see from the pictures, it is largely vegetable powder; I could only find a couple chunks of turkey in the entire bag.
Since the bag says "Just add water and magic happens", I did so. First, I followed the directions on the bag...adding the correct amount of water to the mix and waiting 15 minutes yielded...gruel. It was basically a sticky, gloppy vegetable paste. My mastiffs were excited by the bag when I opened it, but they would only barely taste it once it was prepared. I figured they needed time to try it out, and let them be.
I came back a few hours later to both dogs sitting grumpily near the Sojos, not having touched it. I happened to have about pound of cooked, leftover steak, so I cut it up and put it in the Sojos, thinking they just needed some encouragement. I came back an hour later to the same scene...untouched bowls of Sojos, with strategically extracted holes where the steak had once been. At this point, I decided that the directions on the bag were wrong, and tried making thicker mixtures with some of the remaining Sojos. Nada. I couldn't even get my dogs to eat this when I added peanut butter to it.
If peanut butter and steak can't make a dog eat a food, nothing will. I don't know what's in this stuff, but it's nasty to make, nasty to clean up, and apparently so nasty that two hungry mastiffs would skip meals for the day. I really don't recommend trying this expensive experiment! You'd be better off just preparing raw or serving something like Orijen.
