    Hi there!!

    You must be Canadian! I've been feeding Holistic Blend to Henry for well over a year now. We started with the Lamb, and then switched to the Chicken (for no other reason than they ran out of Lamb at our Ryan's, and only had the Chicken). Personally, I love it! Henry looks fabulous, poops are small and firm (eccch, I know) and virtually no gas. ;D He eats about 2 cups per day.

    He has eaten both Wellness and Canidae (the 4 protein formula) and both were way too rich for him. He's doing extremely well on Holistic Blend!!

    I'm glad someone else has found this food! Let me know what you think if you decide to try it!

    PS. LOVE that you have one of each colour!! LOL! Oh, and welcome to the forum!!

    HI Henrysmom,
    Thanks for letting me know you like the food. I am Canadian and live in New Brunswick .Like I said I just came across this food today at a local store and it almost seemed to good to be true. Right now my girls are on 2 different foods one being for allergies. This actually looks like a food that would be good for all three of them .I think I am going to make the switch . Now just to decide between lamb and chicken.
    Thanks again for replying . I think Henry is so cute . I got quite a laugh because my husbands name is Henry . .
    Oh and Happy Canada Day* !!! Have a great long w/e.
    Sue

    Hello,

    I am new to the forum, so no pictures posted yet. I'd like to hear from others on Holistic Blend also. I ordered the food online from petfooddirect.com and by coincidence just got it in today. I purchased the Chicken/ Rice & Vegetable one. We just got our choc. lab Ellie on June 17th. I had been feeding her Canidae Chicken kibbles with Canidae canned food. I will switch over gradually to Holisitic Blend.

    I'd planned to add canned food to it but Holistic Blend had only the canned vegetable/fruit mix. On their website it says they will have canned meat food as of July 1st. I am not sure if adding the canned food is needed or not. I will let you know how we make out. I gave Ellie a little taste of a handful of Holistic Blend today and she ate it fine.

    Hi Alice! Welcome to you too!

    You probably don't need to feed canned and dry, unless it's a personal preference. The dry kibble is balanced enough as it is.

    Sue.. I was looking at Henry's bag of chicken this morning, and if you're deciding between the two, I might go towards the chicken, just because it's chicken meal vs. whole lamb (which has a higher water content, and therefore, less lamb). You might want to check a bag of lamb to see whether it's lamb meal... I see on their website they list their ingredients as you have above.

    Happy Canada Day to you too!! ;D Enjoy your long wkend!
