Whole Foods Market recently launched Whole Paws, its very own line of premium pet foods formulated with first ingredients like chicken and salmon, and other wholesome proteins that pets crave. They asked The Lazy Pit Bull to give these new foods a try, and we’re happy to report our findings.
My girls are not picky eaters – in fact, they’ll eat just about anything. But as you know if you’ve been reading this blog for very long, I’m pretty picky about what I allow them to eat. My Dachshund, Sadie, is 14 years old and Nike, our Pit Bull mix, has a variety of allergies, so both girls have special dietary needs. I prefer to cook for them myself, but for those occasions when time is short, I’ve found we have to have a high quality commercial food that is not only good for them, but also tastes good.
The Whole Paws line includes dry and canned food for both dogs and cats, treats and biscuits, and even cat litter.
We tried the dry salmon and sweet potato recipe, as well as the chicken and brown rice recipe. We also tried all 3 varieties of the canned food: the chicken, beef & vegetable stew, the chicken & vegetable stew, and the turkey & sweet potato stew, and my dogs loved it all.
What I loved is that all Whole Paws products are made without artificial flavors, soy, animal by-products, added sugars, or grains like corn. Our pets don’t need those things, and we should avoid foods that include them.
We were very pleased with Whole Paws, and we think this is a food we’ll keep on hand for those occasions when cooking for our dogs just isn’t feasible. They loved the taste, and we loved that they were eating quality food made with wholesome ingredients.
Have you tried Whole Paws yet? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Leave a comment below!
