|I am generally satisfied with it.
I do not like Diamond very much, don't hate it, just don't like it. But that doesn't mean I won't feed a food they make, as long as my dogs do good on it. Which they do.
I noticed that around two weeks after putting the Girls onto Taste of the Wild their coats became less greasy and more glossy/soft, their breath got a lot better, their poop was smaller and didn't smell like a cattle feedlot, and they had more energy. Reduced portions and increased exercise for Sasha got her to drop 20 pounds. (That did not work on their previous food very well, believe it or not.) I rotate through all four (soon to be five) formulas with no problems, but I tend to prefer High Prairie and Wetlands since those two have more protien than Sierra Mountains or Pacific Stream. My dogs do better on higher protien foods, I have noticed, so I generally stick to foods with more rather than less.
The Shiba... I have not officially tried him on Taste of the Wild yet. In the past he has reacted badly kibbles so he was raw-fed for a while, but now he can eat certain kinds (dunno why) so I have been testing them on him our of sheer curiosity, and also to be able to have an emergency backup if like, the house exploded and all my meat is incinerated, or something like that. (You never know.)
Anywho, yeah, I think it's a pretty good food. The manufacturer could use some sprucing up, but the food is generally a good one. I probably wouldn't feed it if I could get another brand (that had a manufacturer with a better track record) for the same price, but I can't, so Taste of the Wild it is.
