I came here to ask for some feedback about the dog food I am feeding my 2 dobermans. It is a dog food brand from my country as I want to support my country’s economy. But I never really got any feedback if the ingredients are any good I was ignored whenever I asked someone as I’m not that knowledgable, I even tried to search a nutritionist but since I don’t know what they call it in my country I couldn’t find any.
The ingredient list was put into google translate since I was lazy translating it from Slovak to English. Also the dog food is for puppies.

So far so good from what I see on the ingredients. First time I see mushrooms added in dog food for sure. I usually relate mushrooms to human food and medicinal reasons. I’m not sure whether it would be that beneficial for a dog to eat mushrooms. For us humans is proven as a superfood and a great alternative to meat. I eat lion’s mane mushroom for example to feel better and improve my wellbeing feeling. It’s a great Australian dried mushroom that I never even knew existed. Such a great tone up on my daily activities after I started consuming it.
