For September 2015, the best selling dry dog food in sales on Amazon.com continues to be a grain-free, high protein formula, made up of roasted venison and bison, vegetables, fruit, and other nutritional ingredients made by Taste of the Wild. This longstanding #1 Amazon dry dog food bestseller is the High Prairie Canine Formula. Since thousands of customer reviews sing the praises of the High Prairie canine formula and how their pets gobble it up, we thought we would look into this a bit more and share some of what we found about this top rated dog food with our readers.
According to nearly 3,000 positive customer reviews, dogs love the rich, flavorful taste of roasted venison and bison, and many families see health improvements in just a few short months of feeding this super high quality formula. Taste of the Wild’s High Prairie dry food formula features easily-digestible proteins. Protein is one of the most important nutrients for dogs as it helps build muscle mass and keep basic body functions working as they should. The majority of Amazon customer reviewers who note improvement after a month or two talk about how energy, skin issues and other health problems are positively affected after being on the High Prairie diet.
Taste of the Wild’s nutritional integrity statement:
We only use the highest quality ingredients in our formulas. In fact, each formula is carefully developed by nutritionists and veterinarians, who select the best meats, fruits, vegetables and other select ingredients that offer the optimum health benefits specific to your pet. Additionally, all of our formulas feature guaranteed probiotics that aid in digestion, bolster the immune system, and support a healthy, active lifestyle.
In addition to the great taste of the roasted meats mentioned, High Prairie also delivers other more concentrated proteins in the form of high quality lamb, chicken and fish meal.
In case you are wondering what ‘meal’ is exactly, it is the term given to a concentrated form of meat after it has been thoroughly cooked down. This reduces moisture and concentrates the protein value and taste. When starting with high quality meats, as the Taste of the Wild products do, what remains after this cooking process is a protein-packed easily-to-digest dry food.
According to Taste of the Wild’s official brand website, here are some of the beneficial nutrients and benefits in this popular formula:
K9 Strain® Probiotics
Roasted Bison and Roasted Venison
Optimal Amino Acids
Omega Fatty Acid Blend
Taste of the Wild’s High Prairie high-protein blend breaks down as follows for protein and fat percentages as well as calorie count:
Protein: 32% minimum; Fat: 18% minimum
Calories: 3,719 kcal/kg (370 kcal/cup) Calculated Metabolizable Energy
Because it is a dry formula, it is easy to take with you when traveling, and can be portioned out in small containers or baggies when you need to board your dog, so the convenience factor is high.
If your dog needs more moisture in their diet, simply adding a bit of water or high-quality low-salt/unsalted broth can increase moisture intake.
