I had been feeding Sammy a named brand food. But he was having trouble with allergies all the time. It would make him sick. So we decided to try the Freshpet. Wow! I had never seen him love eating like he does with this food. In fact, he loves this food so much he starts bugging you to feed him sooner. I cannot say that the allergies are any better because we have bermuda grass and most dogs are allergic to it as well. But we are happy that he loves his food so much.
