 In Sept, I spoke about Diamond Natural grain free foods -Grain Free doesn't have to be expensive. Let's talk about WHY you should chose a grain free food. Grains , like corn and wheat are a frequent reason for canine allergies. Just like humans, some may have a harder time digesting certain grains. Changing to a grain free diet can sometimes help food allergies. 
 Diamond Naturals Grain Free food has 3 protein rich dry dog food formulas. I was sent 2 sample bags to try. The first bag we tried was the chicken and sweet potato formula, we were also sent the beef and sweet potato formula but we have not tried this one yet.

Chicken and sweet potato formula
There is one dog who is a sweet potato eater in this house. Someone who loves them no matter how she gets them. She is also known as the chow hound and ma loved the kibble size. It wasn't too big nor too small. It was the right size for large or small dogs.

 Ma put a few pieces of beef treats in the bowl to entice Jenny Sue. It worked, after Jenny ate the three beef pieces she proceeded to clean the bowl. Diamond Naturals has 3 protein rich formulas. They have the Chicken and sweet potato, beef and sweet potato and whitefish and sweet potato , they are filled with fruits and vegetables but no grains. Each formula provides amino acids for ideal lean body conditions. Since the food isn't filled with fillers , you can feed less because it fills them up faster.Sweet potatoes are a power packed vegetable that is rich in fiber, Vitamin A and C, iron Calcium and beta carotene. Jenny Sue says they taste good too! 
The beef formula is made from the lean muscle meat of a cow, the chicken isa food grade chicken that has been deboned. They use fresh chicken; never frozen and its processed within 24 hours of arriving at the factory,the fish is a white ocean fish. Its a great source of omega 3 fatty acids and has been known to be great for dogs who have allergies to beef or chicken.

Do you feed your pets a grain free diet? If so, have you seen a difference in your pet since switching?

  1. We used to have Duke on a grain free formula but our vet recommended we take him off of it to ease some of his symptoms. The grain free trend was one that caught our eye, especially considering the natural canine diet, but he is doing better on a grain inclusive formula. So interesting to collect information though! -Jess @ Life with Duke

    1. My vet recommended that I stay on my current food but said the grain free would benefit my sissy spaniel. She is the one who is eating it now. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. That food looks healthy. I eat grain-free cat food. I don't know about dogs but cats don't process veggies and get nutrients from them but they taste good anyway. Great review.

    1. My kitty friends eat grain free too. They like it and it seems to help them.

  3. Great review. If I can find this in Norway I will give it a try.
    I am a medium sized Norwegian dwarf poodle, and as every poodle owners know; poodles are very picky on the food :-)

    1. Yes poodles can be very picky. Hopefully you can find the food near you.
      Thank you for stopping by!

  4. Great post! I haven't given my three their samples of Diamond Naturals yet. I need to do that so I can post about it the next time around! Have a great weekend.

    I have been feeding my dog a grain free wet food but would love to try to get her back on dry food since it is less fattening. I am definitely going to see if my dog store has this brand. Thanks for sharing this review!

  6. Our cat eats Diamond. When we rescued him, we gave him the Meow Mix we had on hand for the last cat. Wouldn't touch it. Canned tuna. Nope. Canned cat foods of differing brands and flavors. Nope. In the middle of the night he climbed to the top of the pantry and knocked down the bag of kitten Diamond that a friend left here. Gnawed open the bag. So he chose his own food. We've been pleased that it's not outrageously expensive.

  7. Great post! My doggies eat grain free, but I don't think we've tried this one. =)


We love to hear from you.
