I am considering switching Bailey to Chicken Soup dog food(just got our samples in the mail!) and I was wondering who uses it and what has your experience been with this food?

I used to use it. It was great. I switch my foods around occasionally. That is one that I will switch back to.

I have had Otis on it for about 6 months now and he and I both love it. He was on Canidae and Innova before that and had terrible gas with it. With the Chicken Soup, though--he has barely any gas at all and he looks great-he really does love it :)

The only issue I have is that a bag doesn't last long enough for this big boy...;)

I can imagine!:p
I can get an 18lb bag for $15 here, and that would last Bailey and the dachshund quite awhile. Its so economical my mom was unsure about the quality of the food(we usually pay $15 for a 5lb bag of Blue) What sold me was the ingredients, it's the best looking light food I've found.

I think it is a very good food for the money. My dogs liked it too. I have them on Taste of the Wild right now but I wouldn't cry if I had to put them back on Chicken Soup. :)

My only complaint was that Mojo had larger and more frequent stools but that's not enough that I wouldn't recommend it to someone looking for a good food that's very budget friendly. I like what we currently have him on, but I wouldn't be upset if we needed to go back to CS.

Hi everyone...I had my dog on Supermarket Dog Food -- the brand I chose was Good Life Recipe -- but then I researched it and was really upset with myself -- I took him off of it & went to PetSmart and chose Blue Buffalo after doing some research -- he is doing very good on this food -- no more gas or loose stools (he was having this off & on with Good Life)

I'm from New Jersey & I haven't heard of Chicken Soup but it sounds good --

It is OK to switch once in awhile? .....only because I don't want him to get bored --

and has anyone had any experience with Paul Newman's Dog Food? I've heard that was a good one...

Chubby (that's my dog) is 1 yr old and weighs 55 pounds - he runs around the yard ALOT and I take him for 2 walks a day.

I feed him 1 Cup of Dry Food in the morning and at night I give him 1 Cup of Real Chicken or Beef (Mostly Chicken)w/ some raw veggies and 1/2 Cup of Dry Food -- does that sound about right in your opinion?

Just curious -- thanks, Donna

Yes.. Lots of people like to 'rotate' kibbles. From what I've heard, most people switch food when one the old bag runs out, so every month or so. Then there are weirdos like me, who switch it every meal..:rolleyes: Most people wouldn't recommend switching the food so often because it can cause stomach upset and runny poo.. But Zoey never has any of those problems having it switched so often.

haha--a 35 lb bag lasts Otis about 2 weeks ;) I pay $34 for it, so really it's not a bad price at all for the quality of food! I thought he'd have major gas from it like he did with the more expensive brands, but I am very happy with it...happy he dosen't clear the whole house anymore :D

I have had fantastic results with Chicken Soup; Currently I am feeding the Puppy food. Our Terrier has a really tough time keeping weight on, with most adult foods, so we decided to try a puppy food. She is doing way better. We also feed Raw a couple times a week.

In a way, I think it can be the opposite; if a dog has one food for too long, switching can be really difficult. My dogs get switched up a lot too; some nights they get kibble, others they will get canned, other days they will get Raw; I don't think my dogs get the same thing two days in a row, for the most part, and I have never had any issues with them. I can count on my hands how many times the two of my current dogs have had the runs, or have thrown up...

I fed it, I liked it, but I ended up switching them over to TOTW. No reason other than it was better quality and grain free. They did good on the Chicken Soup though. I would recommend it.

I've never used it for Bridgette, but I recently switched both my cats to and am very happy. They're poo smelled horrendous before now and is much, much better now.

It's part of my dog food rotation, and is the only dry food my cats eat. I have no complaints....it's a great food.

It's a pretty good food, I'm using it now, but I'm switching to Orijen just because CS here is EXPENSIVE... $60 for a 35lb bag... and Orijen is $61 and a much higher quality food, or Acana (same company as Orijen) and is equivalent on ingredients to CS but its only $41/bag.

So, in recap, it's a good food, and if you're getting it for $35/bag it's a good deal... if you're paying $60, I'd shop around. (Keep in mind, my pricing is Canadian)... $35/bag is the equivalent of $45 or so up here.

I buy the 35 pound bag because that is the best value. I keep coming back to chicken soup, because it IS a good food, my dogs do well on it, and it is easily available. Very good choice for us.:)
