    I was placing a new order yesterday and the SSLL website says they are going to stop selling their dinner mix because Steve Brown is retiring. What a disappointment as I just started using it and it was going to be my go to for homemade raw. Just wanted to post in case anyone else relies on the product

    Drats, and I thought we were going to convince him to make a product for bone in meats. What a bummer!

    I guess I’m glad I bought too much the last time I bought it.

    Yeah I bought 3 lbs which will at least get me through until I find something else. It’s hard to find products with ingredients I like. It’s too bad he can’t just sell the company to someone reputable.

    I’ve never tried the SSLL I’ve just gone back to using THK after they removed the alfalfa. How does SSLL Dinner Mixes compare to THK formulas that you add your own protein to. I’m thinking maybe I should order some for rotation while it’s still around. Who likes it, who’s meh about it and who has had adverse reactions with it? Thanks everyone.

    Forgot to ask what sizes you buy and how long is it’s shelf life? Thanks guys, I guess I’m late to the game on this one. I’m looking for another pre-mix dehydrated since I don’t want to keep giving the girls so much fish (Zeal).

    Gideon and Angel do great on it, but Micah can’t have it.

    What’s in it that Micah can’t have?

    I’ve only tried THK samples. I like the SSLL better, it’s a powder versus chunky and it doesn’t need water, just mix into meat. I only bought 1 lb the first time about 6 weeks ago. I haven’t been using it much with my 2 dogs but it will probably be gone by the end of the month because I’ll use it more on vacation. I don’t see an expiration date on the package tho. The production date is May 2014. I would imagine it has 6-12 month shelf life.

    Thanks Kristin C. I’ll pass on the SSLL as my dogs like their food chunky. I’m glad I waited before ordering any. : )

    Hi Dori

    SSLL is a powder to sprinkle on boneless meat, so you can have it as chunky as you like. I really like it for dogs that you are trying to restrict carbs on. You only use 1 tablespoon per pound of meat. Angel needs fiber added to her SSLL, because it is so nutrient dense/low fiber.

    What???? Noooooooo! I love this stuff for Bentley 🙁 I’ll have to order a few bags. They last him forever (about 5 months by my calculations, but we are still working on the first bag). I’d hate to put him back on canned, plus it’d cost more 🙁

    I buy too much of it and then store it in the freezer until I need it.

    Good idea BC. I’ll store my extra bags in the freezer until I need them. I’m searching for another mix I can move onto after my SSLL stash is gone but not finding anything so far. Anyone ever tried Better In The Raw?

    I’ve used CarnivoreRaw before. It has bone-in and boneless options (with or w/o calcium) and it’s a powder. You can find it at youngagainpetfood.com.

    Hi Dori
    Somehow I didn’t see your earlier post. Micah can’t have flaxseed. The only premixes that I’ve found so far that Micah can have are Preference and Dr Harvey’s Veg to Bowl. I haven’t tried Preference yet, so I don’t know how he’ll do on it though.

    Hey BC, What happens when Micah has flax? Sam can’t have flax either because it gives him gas and loose stool.

    I feel terrible that I ever have him THK Perfect Form, which has flax. No wonder it didn’t work for him!

    Ears, skin, and eye goobers.

    Thanks everyone that answered my questions about SSLL. Katie doesn’t do too well with flax seed if I give it to her too often. The other two do fine on it but since Katie is the occasional poop eater and I’m not the only one letting them out in the yard and going with them, I guess I’ll pass. I know flax is suppose to be good for you but really!!! Does it have to be in almost everything???? JEESH!

    How ’bout it, Dori! Trying to find foods without flax has been a real challenge for me.

    It’s exhausting. Especially when it’s not only flax we’re trying to avoid but other sensitivities also. Flax doesn’t give Katie gas or bad breath or eye buggers it makes her itchy all over. Non stop scratching.

    I think it was flax that perplexed me for a long time when I was trying to isolate problem ingredients. When exposed, Sam developed gas and loose stool pretty quickly, so I would usually stop what he was eating and move on. I could never feed it to him long enough to see if he reacted with his gunky ear like Micah.

    Flax seems so delicate, too. It goes rancid very quickly.

    Sorry BC but it contains ground flaxseed.

    FYI, I just read on their website SSLL is working with a larger company on dinner mixes which will be available Spring 2015. That sounds promising for any fans of the product.

    Thanks Sandy, I’ll look at it again and see if I can spot why I didn’t buy it in the past.

    It was the first ingredient, natural poultry flavor(chicken liver and heart) that kept me from using this in the past. I’ll probably get some to try for Angel and Gideon when my SSLL runs low.
