At The Naked Dog, we care about what people feed the furry members of their families. The shopping experience is ultra-convenient and the most affordable in the market.…And that makes our tails wag.Before we adopted Chase, we rescued a stray cat. He looked EXACTLY Morris from the 9 Lives commercials, so we named him Morris. He had other nicknames, like Baby Boy or My personal favorite, Mr. Cranky McSassyPants.
The one problem we had with Morris was since he was a senior cat when we brought him in, he had some digestion issues. Dry foods with artificial colors and/or dyes in them gave him very runny and stinky diarrhea. So, I set out on the waves of the internet to find a cat food without the dyes and junk. The only one I found like this without having to go to Petco or Petsmart was Whiskas.
Once we switched him to an all-Whiskas diet (including his treats, Temptations), the diarrhea cleared up and his #2s became solid, as they should be. From this, I deduced that foods with artificial colors and dyes weren't good for animals.
When we took Chase to the vet in Moravia, I asked Dr. Kerry about the dyes in pet food, and she confirmed my theory. She gave us a bag of Hill's Science Diet Small Puppy Bites, which doesn't have the dyes.
But then I wasn't buying the dog food for a while, which meant Chase was eating foods with dyes in it.
When The Naked Dog Box agreed to send me a box of their food, I was excited. It's all-natural... no artificial colors or dyes are added to the food, meat is the FIRST ingredient, and the food is LOADED with numerous vitamins and minerals.
^^What I Received^^
Turkey & Chickpea dry food, Zuke's Mini Naturals Dog Treats in Delicious Duck and Fetch Fuel Active samples
The only problem we have with this food is Chase isn't too fond of it. I don't know if it's the chickpea in the morsels or the fact that he's ate the food with dyes in it for so long, but he really doesn't care for it. This is odd to me, since he LOVES turkey. The card we got with the shipment says to feed him a scoop in the morning and a scoop at night. He has about a 1/4 to 1/2 of the morning scoop left at night. Meanwhile the Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak food we got from Influenster is gone by the middle of the afternoon.
The Zuke's Mini Naturals treats are a hit or miss with Chase. There are days he'll eat them, then there are days that he turns his snout up at them. I think it's the duck flavor, because he didn't like another food we have for review with duck in it. If this was a different flavor, he'd probably eat them quicker.
The Fetch Fuel Active vitamin supplements were the biggest hit in the box. Chase LOVED them. I wasn't entirely sure how I was supposed to give this to him, so I just squeezed some into my palm and let him lick it off my palm. He licked my palm clean and kept licking WELL after the supplement was gone.
The problem I think disabled people will have with this box is lifting and/or moving the bag of dry food. We were supposed to get a 5.25 lb bag, but we got a 14 lb bag. I was able to move it with my walker by swinging it forward and then walking up to it, but it may be hard for some disabled people to move it.
The good thing about The Naked Dog Box is, like Chewy, they deliver directly to your front door, so those that are homebound or don't drive won't have to worry about how they will get this. They also deliver every 2 weeks, so your pup will never run out of food!
This is available from The Naked Dog Box for $20.00.
Great subscription box for those that want the best for their pup... I just wish Chase liked the food more!
