Default Taste of the Wild

Hi!
I would like to find out if anyone else feeds their dogs Taste if the wild? We are feeding it to our two puppies and so far its fine but I am just interested in finding out if anyone has had bad experiences with it?
The pups are 11weeks and are going for their shots and check ups next week. I suspect that the boy has some allergies as the first few days we had him he broke out in bumps and a swollen eye but since feeding them TOTW he's been fine!
They do look skinny though...the bag recommends 3/4cup food twice a day and I know they say not to over feed but we've upped it to 1cup twice a day and even with that Im still worried it's not enough!
If anyone else uses this brand with their dogs /puppies and had any tips, that would be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome from Texas

My dogs hate TOTW but There are several people here who swear by it. So I can't really be of any help. Sorry

I love TOTW and so does Moxie. Nothing but good feedback coming from me.

Your pups don't really look skinny to me... but I'm no professional. I noticed when Moxie was little like your babies her ribs would show like that when she was laying on her side. I think I have a pic somewhere... can you see their hip bones and/or spine at all when they are standing?

Its harder to see due to her color and she IS hanging off the side like a ninny. But you can see a pretty distinct outline of her rib cage. And in person you could see each rib when she layed on her side ( not just hanging off the couch)

I used to feed TOTW - Sierra Mountain formula.
The Pacific Stream formula made my two shed too much and the other 2 formulas were too high in protein for M & M.
They liked it and always did well on it. I eventually switched after their last recall which was back in April if I remember correctly. We never had a problem with any of the bags we bought but Diamond has had a lot of recalls over the years and this last one just kind of made me lose faith in the company as a whole.

I fed TOTW before switching to raw. I didn't have any issues with it. It's actually the only kibble that Rocky did well on. Just because you are seeing rib does not automatically mean the pups are too thin. Boxers should be lean, you should be able to see a little rib. Looks perfect to me

I also fed TOTW before switching to raw. My older boy Mason did fine on it. He was on Pacific Stream and the Sierra Mountain formulas. Logan did not do so well. He had a very hard time on the Pacific Stream formula. Gave him bad gas like you wouldn't believe and the Sierra Mountain caused him to get sick a lot and he also had loose stools! I had a very hard time finding a kibble that agreed with him so we made the switch to raw.

I feed my 1 year old taste of the wild, Praire. She loves it and hasn't had any issues.

Thanks for the feedback guys! Will try it for longer and see how it goes. They have no tummy issues or shedding yet & their coats are nice & sift & shiny, so fine for now!

Agree with the rest. Your babies look to be about perfect weight. You don't want them round and rolly polly. When I first started feeding good quality food I worried my dogs weren't getting enough as well. In fact, my son and hubby would even fill their bowls completely. I had to write feeding instructions on both the adult and puppy food containers to remind them that full bowls wasn't to be fed. If you are only recently bringing them onto quality food, it may take them a bit to adjust to the full feeling of good food versus foods high in filler.
