    Default Nature's Gift Food

    I became interested in Nature's Gift dog food a few weeks ago through people buying it at work, reading online, and the friendly staff sending me a sample of their dry food after I emailed them (which Suzie loved!).

    So I tried Suzie on the Nature's Gift canned food, Chicken with Rice and Vegies flavour and here's my basic review on it so far.

    Pros:
    • I like their ingredients and I feel good knowing that my precious girl isn't eating food packed full of preservatives and other crap.
    • She also can't eat as fast (which would otherwise cause her to have an upset tummy sometimes).
    • She seems to love the taste too!


    Cons:
    • I cut my thumb open on the lid the first time my bad!
    • It must smell great to ants because they've suddenly become more interested in her bowl when it's left outside.
    • And it's a bit harder to serve than Supercoat as in the can it's like a big compressed lump of meat and vegies.
    • I'm also a bit unsure about what appears to be fat condensed around the sides of the can.


    I'll definitely be trying out the other flavours in the future. I'm also looking into getting a bag of the Biogestion5 Dry Food.

    Has anyone else tried/fed Nature's Gift products before?

    The chicken and rice in the can comes up ok as far as tin food goes,from memory has 70% chicken.
    The Bio Dry, have heard that a few dogs have had an allergy reation to it. Nothing too serious, just scratching.

    Never used it as I feed BARF.

    At the end of the day it's trial, so what ever your dog does best on.

    I had fed my dogs nature's gift (dry food-chicken and rice) a few times per week. Chicken and rice dry food is quite ok for my dogs but when i fed beef one both had vomit and/or runny poo. (I contacted the company to provide feedback of their products and they appreciated the feedback)

    At current i use Supercoat as emergency food but happily will feed my dogs Chicken and rice dry food again.

    It is hard to find Nature's gift at Coles though.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    I asked them about that and it seems like Woolworths stocks nearly all of their products where as Coles only stocks 2 flavours of their canned food (though my store has a pretty bad range in terms of pet food anyway). Some IGA stores like them too and stock their range. I wonder if Coles still have those forms where they'll order stuff in if they don't have it.

    Nature's Gift is the only canned food my little ones will eat. It's also the only canned food I've seen that actually looks like it contains real vegetables

    I just have a thing against any can food but Natures gift would be the best I guess.

    What is the general opinion on 4 Legs as dog food? My girls love it, but I was really shocked when the vet told me last week that it's not very good for them. I was also told that some of the more meaty bones can be upsetting to dogs. I would be very interested in any recommendations. I have 2 x 11 years old pugs. At the moment their weight is very good. One is unwell (as you may know from another thread), but is eating normally at the moment. Linda

    I feed older guys a fairly bland diet of chicken or turkey miince(occasionly venison) mixed with rice(or porrage if dogs prone to hot spots)& add chia seed & teaspoon olive oil. I add bran, eggs, mashed veg at least 3 x a week to the mince mix. And feed raw chicken carcess, necks & wings for teeth health.

    OK, I reckon my two girls would love that, but then again, pugs would eat just about anything! I don't think I have ever met a greedier breed of dog!!!!!

    I have always had concerns about chicken bones and small breeds. I can just see them choking on them. I know they recommend it, but this has always been my concern. In the past, I have always looked for the small marrow bones for them and now I have been told that these might be too fatty! Linda

    With the chicken I find necks the safest but if the dog is a swallow withot chewing dog turkey necks can be better as they are too big to try & swallow whole for littler breeds.
    I would really reccomend you try chia seeds as I have had great success with them with poor doers, sickly & elderly dogs. My vet even ask what i was doing different with Tori as she looked so much better & all I'd cahnged was adding chia seeds.
