Pet Product Review – SIMPLE Food Solutions from Wellness, Canned 12.05 oz
Of all the new healthy super premium pet food companies, I have to say Wellness is doing the best job at delivering to the market new products that have “solution”. With that they’ve sent me a big box of their new SIMPLE Food Solutions. This is a new line from Wellness specifically designed to be the natural solution for Dogs Suffering from Food Allergies or Intolerances. Since my dog is just a puppy, I gave the entire box which included a big bag of the dry mix and a big box of 12.5 oz canns of Lamb, Duck and Salmon to my friend Tony and his Doberman Senta.
Well we’re not nutrition experts so our response is quite candid. This is what Tony had to say:
“OK, I’ve only been able to give her two products so far: Simple brand 95% salmon and Simple brand 95% lamb.
For both types of Simple brand, Senta loved them. She has never had wet dog food before, and she devoured the salmon very quickly. One thing that I noticed about the salmon dog food was that it did affect her breath some as the oils from the fish lingered in her mouth. Smelled like cat breath if you ask me! The lamb was equally welcome, she ate that up quickly as well. The next day for both types her stool was a bit looser than normal, so I think I will be adding some more dry food to the wet to increase the consistency. I think that overall the products are very forthright in their content: 95 percent of the meat and no grain and for both types that you gave me she enjoyed them.
Next I’m going to try the Simple brand dry food and maybe mix some in with the other brand of wet food (the one in the box).
How much does Simple canned food go for? I actually think I might buy some!”
Emphasis on the last sentence please “I might buy some!” that is good coming from a New Yorker!
Here is what the experts at Wellness say about the SIMPLE Food Solutions:
“Less is More! For some dogs that means eating a simplified diet that uses a unique protein source while removing additional proteins, carbohydrates, fillers and additives.
Utilizing our unique 1 + 1 system, we combine one novel animal protein source plus one easily digestible carbohydrate source with a short, yet complete list of key ingredients – and nothing extra. This special, natural recipe limits the number of ingredients your dog is exposed to each day while nourishing simply and completely.
The 5 Key Ingredients
Simple Food Solutions Formulas have only 5 main ingredients carefully chosen for their quality, nutritional value and their ability to nourish with simplicity:
Duck, Lamb or Salmon are chosen as “novel,” high quality alternative to common proteins like beef and chicken due to its unique amino acid profile.
Canola Oil This high quality fat source is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids to help your dog maintain healthy skin and coat from the inside out.
Tomato Pomace An ingredient rich in the antioxidant lycopene and an excellent dietary fiber source to help maintain digestive health and produce healthy stools.
Vitamins & Minerals A complete blend of everything your dog needs for daily wellbeing including antioxidants, vitamins and minerals
A Comprehensive “No” List
Simple Food Solutions contains NO Meat by-products, Dairy, Corn, Soy, Wheat, Eggs, Artificial Preservatives, Colors or Flavors. This “NO” list contains common allergens or irritants often found in other pet food.
I love how its not full of grains like the supermarket dog foods, and its made in the USA, so no worry about recalls. All in all good stuff.
