If you get on social media to ask your dog mom FB groups what food is best for your new puppy, you’ll always see Taste of The Wild listed! As ALWAYS!!! TOTW has knowledge of the diet of dog ancestors and they understand that it was simple and consisted primarily of the prey they hunted and/or scavenged for. However, times have changed and finding a simple yet complete food for your fur baby shouldn’t be challenging like it was back then! That’s why Taste of The Wild created Taste of the Wild PREY which is a simplified approach to your dog’s native ancestry diet! It’s a Limited ingredient dog food diet that’s ‘pawfect’ for your pooch! And the best part… They guarantee 80 MILLION probiotics in this food!!
We actually had the opportunity to test out PREY for a month and we’re happy to report that our dogs LOVED it! On a personal note… I was hesitant to change Abbie and Gunner’s food from a raw diet back to kibble… but I was thoroughly surprised that their stomachs digested it just fine! No runny stools, no upset tummies, no vomiting or grass-eating ensued. I know that this was because it’s a quality food and because it guarantees those millions of probiotics to aid with digestion and overall gut health.
PREY has 3 top-of-the-line options to pick from. Trust me, there is something for every single pup out there! But, first and foremost is to note their ingredient list. Real animal protein is the FIRST ingredient in each formula. No by-product meals will be seen here!! PREY only uses real, pasture-raised Angus beef, cage-free turkey, or spring-fed trout!
In addition, each animal protein is paired with only lentils, tomato pomace, and sunflower oil. Each of these ingredients was selected specifically to serve a unique purpose… that’s right, a total of only 4 ingredients in each bag! The benefit of these PREY’s limited ingredient recipes is that they are very easy to mix and match without messing with your pup’s belly, as the protein is the only thing truly changing.
Important things to know about PREY
Often, the meat sourced in pet food will be cooked twice (first by the supplier, then by the manufacturer). However, this cooks out some of the nutrients. PREY’s meats are cooked only ONCE in their state-of-the-art facilities, which allows this particular formula, to retain as much nutritional integrity as possible.
When we first started getting into PREY, we wanted to learn more about the ingredients and what exactly they did for our fur-babies! TOTW does such an amazing job explaining everything they use and why they do it! Like, “Why lentils?” you ask. Well, Legumes contain protein, fiber, and carbohydrates and are nutritious ingredients for dog foods. Also, did you know that tomato pomace is a soluble fiber source that helps promote digestive health and firm stools?! Along with sunflowers being a rich source of omega fatty acids.
Another amazing thing about this natural company is that they make sure probiotics are included in everything they do! We personally have all of our pups on probiotics in some way or another, whether it’s in our dog’s food or a pill or treat. Since Taste of The Wild has this already included in their PREY food line, you don’t even have to think about it! Win, win!
Like we said before, every ingredient in PREY is included for a reason. PREY promises to be transparent and clear about what goes into their products and our pups’ bowls. If you have any questions about the purpose of an ingredient, view their ingredient glossary or contact them directly!
