Haven't tasted the food so can't rate it. The dog had no choice but to eat it but she wasn't thrilled as she had previously been on raw.
We have to use this due to health problems.
The dogs love it and their poop is far less offensive than other foods.
My dog has been on this special hepatic diet since her diagnosis for liver disease. Whilst her liver condition has improved when she was diagnosed they also found she had a copper storage problem so with this diet and higher zinc content she will be on this for the rest of her life. She has never had any problem with feeding but I have also been given permission to top up her food with extra protein such as Eggs , Cottage cheese and other foods benefiting from higher zinc content.
Was a little concerned at changing my dogs diet but this food is excellent he was on royal canin but not the hepatic the kibble is good and he seems to be enjoying it
