Just to let you know on my vet's recommendation, I switched to Deli Fresh from Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance as a topper to Quincy's dry food. Quincy loves it. (and now that his parasite is gone - I can actually pick up his poop) The vet suggested it since he gave it to his dog and noticed a tremendous difference in his dog's poops - a hugh topic of discussion in the Labradoodle forum. Petco and other pet stores carry it. It is sold in the refrigerated section in a loaf and contains chicken, rice and vegetables without the preservatives. You can download a coupon from the internet at delifreshpet.com.

It's cooked. You can see little pieces of cooked carrots/peas in it. You can tell it's very fresh as it crumbles easily and has no smell.

This is made by the same company that makes Freshpet Select. I wonder why they have two different brands?

The Freshpet roll has lower daily feeding amounts than the DeliFresh. Bella really likes the Freshpet but so far I have been using it as a treat. I did call before I started using it and asked if the meat was human grade and they said it was.

AND it smells great and really does seem just like people food. I think I will call tomorrow and find out why they have TWO different lines and if one is better than the other...

The main drawback would be the expense. For the DeliFresh on Amazon it's amost $40 for 8 pounds and if that is Bella's main food she needs about 2 pounds a day, that is $10 per day or $300 a month :shock: Am I calculating wrong?

I think it's so expensive because of the shipping. Most of the pet stores near my house carry it. Have you checked around? The trial size which is 1 pound was 4.00 however the bigger quantity you buy the cheaper it gets - 2 pound loaf was $6.00. And that's huge. I can't imagine your dog would eat 1 of those loaves per day. I use it as a topper to the dry food - Nutro Chicken Rice & Oatmeal for Sensitive Stomachs seems to work the best for him

Why don't you make it yourself? That is exactly what I give to my dogs on top of their dog food prior to breeding & when weaning. Rice, sauted cut up chicken breast, grated carrot, and then stir in some frozen peas. I put daily amounts in baggies, and freeze for a big batch. To this I add some Missing Link.

Megan - thanks for your complement. Quincy is a very handsome guy. Good thing he's so cute since he tires me out with his endless energy and obsession with anything that resembles a ball.

Lucky Me - I could probably cook up the same thing but there's a simple reason I don't - I Don't Cook - not for me or for Quincy. :lol: More power to you if you can do it yourself.
