sent a few cans of canned food for Mr. N to review. They just recently merged
with Cloud Star
and were family-owned before that.
All of the ingredients are human grade certified, and they follow Monterey Bay Seafood Watch “Best Choice” guidelines to ensure seafood sustainability, food safety and protection of the ocean’s ecosystem, and their foods fit a biologically appropriate natural prey nutrient profile (lots of protein and moisture and low or no carb). Their cans are BPA-free as well.
I like the fact that it comes in tiny cans (2.8 oz) because Mr. N only gets canned food as the rare topper or in Kongs and we never use up the cans in the recommended time frame. It also comes in 14.1 oz cans.
They do manufacture in Thailand
but as far as I can tell, there are no particular safety concerns with pet food coming out of Thailand.
Mr. N invited his good friend, Ms. Sage to help participate in the taste tests. The humans carefully plated the different food samples.
The dogs are waiting for dinner to be served.
Sage stared longingly at the food with crazy Border Collie eyes. Someone wants that food!
Once we let her eat, she gobbled the food down in four seconds flat. Sage liked everything and ate the samples in the order that were closest to her.
Mr. N is more of a gourmand and thoughtfully savored every bite. He wants to know where we hid the rest of the food.
The canned food looks like human food and smells like human food. I’d definitely eat it without hesitation if there was a zombie invasion or an earthquake. This is a typical description.
This recipe is made with wild caught, pink Alaskan salmon loin tossed with a small amount of brown rice, hand diced, white sweet potato and chopped whole scrambled egg. We hand place a couple slivers of whole garlic and cut kale leaf on top. We simmer all of our ingredients in a Salmon consommé broth made with heads, tails and unused portions of the salmon in a traditional stock method to produce naturally occurring flavors. The final stage is to add our sunflower oil, vitamins and minerals.
Both dogs found the food extremely palatable and I would definitely feed again. My only concern is that it has garlic in it. I hear mixed reports about whether dogs are supposed to eat garlic or not. Mr. N would only be getting this as a sporadic treat so I’m not too worried but if your dog (or cat, they make cat food as well) eats this as a regular meal, I’d consult your vet if you have concerns.
