Tasty Tuesday - Chewy Time

We were asked by Chewy.com to take part in a taste test program for Solid Gold dog food.  The program involves our presenting three posts this month about the Solid Gold products that we chose.  We were provided the products described below at no cost to us with the only requirement that we provide an honest review of the items.

Can you tell how excited Lightning is?  That very nice lady Sydney from Chewy.com sent us a huge 24 lb. bag of Solid Gold Leaping Waters Cold Water Salmon and Vegetable Recipe kibble.  

Wait - there is MORE!!!  We also see 12 cans of Solid Gold Grain and Gluten Free Sundancer Chicken Recipe.  Recently we tested Solid Gold Howling at the Stars Turkey, Ocean Whitefish & Sweet Potato recipe, and we SO loved it.  We are hoping we enjoy this chicken formula just as much or maybe even more.

Here is what we learned about the kibble formula from the Chewy.com website.

Product Description

Your dog is a marvel of nature powered by good looks, smarts and boundless energy. It takes more than a leap of faith to reach their full potential. Simple ingredients like lean, cold water salmon from the Netherlands, tapioca, chickpeas and farm fresh veggies will have your dog barking for more. This nutrient-rich, grain and gluten-free formula is supported by Solid Gold’s GoldSource Core Nutrition, a proprietary blend of powerful nutrients like taurine to support heart health and L-carnitine to help burn fat and maintain muscle mass.
Key Benefits
  • Grain and gluten-free recipe
  • Holistic food for adult dogs of all sizes

  • No corn, wheat or soy which are common allergens for dogs
  • Healthy, monounsaturated fats such as olive oil, canola oil, and salmon oil for overall skin & coat health
  • No fillers, by-products, artificial coloring, flavoring or preservatives
  • Revolutionary, best-in-class four-ply foil barrier packaging which lends protection & stability to the naturally preserved food inside
  • Made in the USA
  • All natural, high quality, low allergen dog food
  • Protected probiotics and natural prebiotic fiber to support digestion
  • Great for active dogs

Did you see what it says up there - we dogs are a "marvel of nature powered by good looks, smarts, and boundless energy"?  We are flattered by THAT description!!!  We can't wait to taste that salmon!!!  Mom is happy that it is made in the U.S.A. AND that it is grain free AND that it has veggies in it as well as the fish - all great things for us pups!

So what's in this can?  Chewy.com tells us this:

Product Description

This wet dog food recipe is blended with just the right amount of protein to transform your dog - inside and out. Your dog will love feasting on this mouthwatering meal – chicken, egg whites and essential vitamins and minerals. Watch them bust a move and let their inner gold shine.
Key Benefits
  • Perfect to pair with Sun Dancer grain free dry dog food or to be fed as a standalone diet
  • Natural, holistic grain-free & gluten-free recipe
  • Made with delicious deboned beef
  • Nutritionally complete and balanced meal
  • Holistic food for dogs and puppies of all life stages
  • No corn, wheat or soy which are common allergens for dogs
  • No fillers, by-products, artificial coloring, flavoring or preservatives
  • Made in the USA
Once again, grain free and made in the U.S.A.  We usually eat food that is either chicken or turkey based, so this should work just fine for us.

Mom says that I, Ciara, won't be testing the Solid Gold kibble because she has to take things very slowly with me when she switches kibble.  My tummy doesn't always like change.

But I just know I won't have any trouble devouring the yumminess of the canned goodies.  Look at how moist it is.  It really smells good too.  I don't get to have as much as that bowl shows with my dinner serving, but just enough so Mom can hide my thyroid pill:)  Bring it on, Mom - I am drooling here with anticipation.

What's that smell?  Did you catch some fish for ME, Mom???  I am sure I can smell something fishy in that bag.

The kibble is a nice size for all dogs - small, medium, or large.  And the fish smell isn't too bad per Mom.  We think it smells pawesome!!!

So, Mom . . . .  if Ciara isn't going to have any of the kibble, does that mean I can have the WHOLE bag just for me????  Wouldn't that be just wonderful!!!

So now that we have told all our readers about this special product we are going to taste test for Chewy.com during the month of August, isn't it about time to get those bowls filled with all the goodness of Solid Gold???  C'mon, Mom - let's get going.  

We will tell you more in two more posts this month.
