Our dog loves this food. We adopted Bailey in Louisiana and we say she is a "Southern Girl" so there is no reason she wouldn't like alligator and catfish. I read on one post that the dog had diarrhea so to prevent any problems I don't give our girl this food two days in a row. But no matter what she gets for her meals she always gets Blue Buffalo! It's the best quality food. Bailey is part of the family so giving her good food is important for her health.
