Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ellie Approved! Our little kid loves it! She is 5 months old and it provides appropriate nutrients to fuel her misbehaviour! It must be tasty cause her older sisters always try to steal it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Puppy Our puppy seems to enjoy the taste and kibble size of your dry food. Just wish you made a wet food for puppies as well. Have to buy another brand to mix in.
