I know we all know about Newman's Own products but did you know that they have a dog and cat line of products? I really wasn't too sure if Charlie would be the best dog to try this on since he is so picky about what he eats. Remember me telling you that he won't eat dog food, only boiled chicken? Well, then we did a test on another dog food and he really liked it alot. But then we started noticing that he was gnawing on his feet and back so much that he would sometimes be soaking wet!! I kid you not!
Finally, I had to take him to the Vet and he said he was allergic to something, probably food related. The most common food allergies that dogs have are chicken, corn and beef! Did you know that? I did not. I thought, oh my God, what if he is allergic to chicken? Well, it wasn't the chicken because we got to thinking, he has been eating boiled chicken since he was about 8 months old and he is now 3 1/2 years old. The gnawing only started after he started eating the dog food. Well, guess what? It has corn in it!!
So, I took that away and when the great folks at Newman's Own Organics sent me their dry dog food along with several treats for Charlie to try. Guess what?? They don't have corn in them and after a week or so the gnawing stopped! I was so afraid we were going to have to go on that very expensive prescription food from the Vet but Newman's Own Organic Dry Dog Food in Chicken is working like a charm!
The products in the dog food combo package will be:
1. Adult Dog Formula in Chicken Flavor/Vegetables/Organic Grains
2. Snack Sticks in Chicken & Vegetable Recipe
3. Premium Dog Treats in Peanut Butter
4. Premium Dog Treats in Cheese
5. Turkey & Chicken Formula (wet food in cans)
6. Chicken & Brown Rice Formula (wet food in cans)
7. Organic Beef (wet formula in cans)
But, I did have success with the first treat I tried which is the top picture of the treat called Snack Sticks in Chicken & Vegetable Recipe. But see, that is because it is chicken but there is one small victory with Newman's Own Organic Treat in that it has veggies added where when he would chew on the plain chicken tenders he was not getting any veggies! Also, none of Newman's Own Organic Dog foods or treats have corn in them so that was also a plus. Charlie went thru one bag of the treats pretty fast. Thank goodness, the great folks at Newman's Own Organics sent us two bags of the chicken sticks!
I was surprised he even gave the Dry Adult Dog Food a chance but he did and he eats it about once a day and then he wants his boiled chicken for the other meal along with his Sweet Potato Sticks and later in the night is when he will eat one of Newman's Own Organic Chicken Sticks. The other food I was able to get him to try was a little bit of the Organic Beef (wet food in can) but I had to mix it up with his dry dog food and he ate some of it but not all. Charlie never really has liked beef so it is not the food, it is just Charlie being Charlie. We have given all the other dog foods to our friend who has a Lab and she ate all of it!
So, I just wanted you to know that Newman's Own Organic Dog Food was a success with another dog who is normal. Charlie did however, like 3 of the products so for him, that is also a success story considering I have bought a whole bag of different brands of dog treats and food and he turned his nose up at all of them!
