We were recently asked to review "by Nature"dog food; I had never agreed to do a food review before as I don't plan to change Beckett,Veil and Maddy's food at this time, but after looking into the brand, I thought I would give it a try. It's always a good idea to have a back-up. Maddy, being the resident foodie, agreed it was a good idea too.

I picked the "salmon, ocean fish and yogurt flavour". I was happy to see there was no corn, wheat or soy. Beckett doesn't do well on chicken either so it was ok for him to test out too.
We eat a rotation of Acana foods (well, the hounds do...but I guess you figured that one out). That is Acana on the left and the by Nature on the right. The size of the kibble is quite a bit smaller.
