Hi I am looking for a kibble for my dog who is staying with my mom. She likes taking the easy route when feeding my pets (I’m in college) so no raw foods, no wet food, etc. She has switched my dog to Beneful because he wasn’t eating his previous food and he eats it well. He’s 12 though and Beneful is a load of crap. The only other food I know of is Purina One which is at least better than Beneful but still not great. My dog won’t eat food soaked in water, no idea why but he’s more finicky than my cat. Are there any other food brands out there with meaty bits mixed in or something?
Hi, katj813. Welcome to the forum!
It took me a minute to think of such a food, and the only one that comes to my mind is Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost. Now, it is not “raw” raw, it is dehydrated raw that is mixed in the bag with the kibble. It is softer than kibble and the formulas contain pretty unique proteins, so they may be more palatable to your dog. Other than that, if your mom is not willing to mix canned or your dog doesn’t eat softened food (which could be fixed potentially by just letting him try meal after meal, and if he doesn’t eat it, take it away, then serve some again at the next meal until he/she grows hungry enough to eat it), I have nothing….
But please, do your best to get it off of Beneful, or anything by Purina for that matter.
Good luck and let us know if you have any more questions!
Fresh Pet Select has soft Kibbles, but not crunchy. It is really a great brand. You could possibly mix with another brand of crunchy if the pup “has” to have the combo. Anything would be better than Beneful?
Look into C4c’s suggestion about Freshpet. Freshpet is a refrigerated food that is not canned, not raw, would mix easily with a dry food, and it is a kibble shape that pours easily from the bag. It is also easy to find at pet stores, grocery stores, and Wal-Mart.
