Which of these two do you think is the best? I’m really looking for a kibble with quality fish.
Actually, Wellness only has one grain free and that’s Core Small Breed. Any other small breed Wellness contains grains….unless they have something new I don’t know about.
Some of the Simple varieties are grain free.
Nature’s Logic sardine, and it’s low fat. If you’re worried about the amount of protein, cut it with another kibble. Core has Ocean formula but I would call it a small/medium in shape because it is pyramind-shaped or a triangular prism in shape. Not flat. But I used it a couple years ago so it may not be shaped like that anymore. Then there is Instinct Salmon. I also used Prairie Salmon in the past. Hi-Tek has a grain free fish formula too.
The Ocean Fish Core has round shapped kibbles, now. It kind of looks like Cocoa Puffs cereal. I have to sog up any larger kibbles for my 8 pound dog, with water or canned food. Only takes a few extra minutes and apparently makes it much tastier :p
Yes, Akari, some of the Simple line is grain free but the poster referred to specifically small breed formulas which is why I answered the way I did.
Some grain free kibbles I have used that are very small and what I feel are quality fish based products are as follows:
Nature’s Logic Sardine (protein 40.2%);
Canine Caviar Wild Ocean (protein 31%);
Pulsar Fish (protein 28%) is small, but not super tiny;
and EVO Herring & Salmon (protein 42.98%).
OK, the EVO I mention is one to use with caution. Yes, EVO did just have a recall (their first in 21 years I understand, but not surprisingly already their first since their acquisition by P&G in 2010) and I don’t know about ingredient sourcing, but I’m using it right now (for my grain and white potato free dog) and we’re having very good luck with it. A shame though, EVO was once a fantastic product with a reputation to match.
I’ve also used Horizon Legacy Adult with amazing success and love it, but I haven’t used their Fish formula (although I’m eager to try it). The Adult kibble isn’t small, but isn’t huge either, and I have no idea what the size of the fish kibble would be.
Orijen Six Fish is great, but probably one of the biggest kibbles.
I don’t know about the size of Earthborn’s Coastal Catch, but they’re a company I trust also.
