Flint River Ranch Dog Food Review

The market is flooded with all types of dog food: dry kibble, chewy bits, canned dog food, dog food in pouches, organic dog food, premium dog food, all natural dog food, a dog food for allergies…the list goes on and on. And if that doesn’t make choosing a dog food difficult enough, there are many different brands, too. A trip to the pet store or supermarket will provide you with a virtual cornucopia of dog foods. So which ones are really the best? Several make the claim that they’re the one most often recommended by veterinarians or breeders. So how does a concerned dog owner know which is the healthiest dog food to buy?

Lamb and rice dog food

One of the best dog foods on the market is Flint River Ranch dog food. Sometimes this brand is called River Ranch dog food, or simply River dog food. What’s so great about Flint River Ranch dog food? For one thing, it’s made with human-grade ingredients. In other words, this dog food is made of stuff that you would eat! It’s a free-range chicken, lamb and rice dog food. Flint River Ranch dog food contains no by-products, no unhealthy fillers of any kind, no color additives, and no synthetic preservatives. River ranch dog food is an all natural dog food, and there’s also an all natural puppy food available. Most veterinarians will tell you that a natural ingredients dog food is the healthiest dog food.

River Ranch dog food is a corn free dog food

Another great thing about River Ranch dog food is that it’s easily digested. Because it’s baked twice, the ingredients are more easily broken down by your dog’s digestive system. Also, the fact that the particles in River Ranch dog food are small makes them easier to digest. The grains used in River Ranch dog food include rice and whole wheat instead of corn, which many dog foods contain. This is important because corn is very difficult for dogs to digest, so a corn free dog food is much healthier. Plus, this corn free dog food is concentrated. This means your dog eats less to get the proper amount of calories, vitamins, and minerals. Why is this important? Because if your dog eats less, it poops less! Fewer doggie piles for you to have to clean up. This can be a pretty big deal when you have dogs of a giant breed like I do.

If you have a dog with a finicky digestive system, you’ll love this lamb and rice dog food formula. I have two Great Danes who will eat anything, so finding a dog food they like isn’t a problem. The problem is that many Danes are susceptible to bloat and other dangerous digestive conditions, so I have to be careful about what they eat. My harlequin male throws up his food often, but he’s never had any problems with Flint River Ranch dog food. I guess that’s because it’s so gentle to his delicate system. Ironic to think of a Great Dane as delicate, isn’t it? Unfortunately, it’s true! Part of my dog’s problem is that he doesn’t chew – he gulps. Even if the kibble is large, the big boy seems to swallow it whole, so it’s no wonder he throws up a lot. River Ranch dog food solves this problem with their small pieces. Even if the giant pooch barely chews his food, the Flint River dog food kibble is easy to digest, not only because of the ingredients, but also because the small particles mean more surface area.

All natural dog food - natural ingredients dog food

If some owners really knew what was in their dog’s food, they’d be very alarmed. These include potentially dangerous preservatives like BHA, BHT, and other chemicals that have possibly been linked to cancer, organ dysfunction, dental disease, and overall poor health. Dog food is supposed to help improve a dog’s health – not undermine it!

River Ranch dog food doesn’t have these chemical additives because it’s an all natural dog food, a natural ingredients dog food.

About dog food allergies

Just like humans, dogs can have food allergies. Dog food allergies are often due to chemicals added to the foods, and not the foods themselves. Since River Ranch dog food doesn’t use chemical preservatives or other synthetic additives, it largely eliminates the possibility of dog food allergies. River dog food is a great dog food for allergies.

Will your dog like it?

River dog food is highly palatable. In taste tests, it consistently scores in the 90s, while most other brands considered premium dog food usually score only in the 80s. Dog foods are scored on a scale of 1-100 for taste.

Buy dog food online

If you prefer to buy dog food online, you’re in luck. Flint River Ranch dog food can be purchased online and delivered fresh right to your door, with no shipping charges! How great is that? Buy dog food online instead of wrestling with the bags at the grocery store or pet store.

Flint River Ranch dog food comes in several flavor and formulas including those for puppies, adults, and seniors. It comes in 3-lb bags, 10-lb bags, and 20-lb bags. And remember, since it’s concentrated, you’ll feed less River dog food than you would other premium dog food.

Still not convinced? Buy a cheap sample of River Ranch dog food and try it. If you’re not completely satisfied, you’ll get your money back. That’s right! Flint River Ranch offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

This is a really good review habee. It never occurred to me that dogs could develop allergies as well - it makes a lot of sense though. By the by, I hope you and your family are enjoying the snow. :)

If only I still had my dog! And as good as this stuff sounds, and as excellent as you are promoting it, Habee, I am not interested in it for MYSELF...LOL

Ya know, Chris, I think Grendel is the happiest dog I've ever known. He just seems so happy to be alive! He's a real clown.

Habee why did you put such a thought into my head? Now every time I go to the local grocery store I will be cruising down the pet isle and browsing through all the endless ‘flavors’ they offer to dogs thinking when I'll be put on the diet and preparing my mind and stomach for such an occasion, diet and lifestyle! Yikes...so not happening!

I do find it fascinating that dogs and cats have such an abundance of choices though! Can’t wait until my next shopping spree!!! LOL

Great job - we have spent months finding the 'right food' for Griffin as he has been like a toxic cloud going off - he had Giardia when we first got him as a pup and his poor stomach parts have not been the same since! He is so totally ticked about the dog on the couch again though....I am going to have to restrict him (further) from watching the computer screen! Great hub - and congrats on being 100!!

Sassie will eat just about anything but especially loves my home cooked foods, not leftovers I will cook something specially for her with rice, meat and vegetables. Good review Habee but not sure if I can get this brand in Oz, I'll have to try online.

I use to use FRR dog food. My dog Kota loved it. Unfortunately since it had to be shipped I decided to switch when a TCS was built in my area. I still do recommend this brand though! For their cat food I don't recommend it unless they've changed their formula within the last year or so. Their focus is more on the quality of their dog food and their cat food suffered.

Hi this is a fantastic post.

For dry foods, I would suggest Innova Evo, Wellness Core or Nature's Variety Instincts. They are gnilraess which means they'll have less carbs and don't have any of the allergens found in most other dry foods (corn, wheat or soy).For canned foods, there are tons of good ones out there. One very good one is Nature's Variety Instincts. This is what I feed. It's $1.79 per can. I think it's one of the highest priced canned foods out there. Which DOESN'T mean it's the best, but it is very good and it has worked very very well for my problem child.See the What to feed link for other suggestions. This is a very handy link you can go to the sites and use the store locators to find where the food is sold in your area.I'm also linking you to my blog so you can learn more about identifying other good foods.EDIT: I think kanan meant to say that it's good you're switching to CANNED. LOL

That was AWESOME! The pictures are so fun and the kids look htalehy and happy. I love the music. I love to hear children praising the Lord but in another language it adds something even more special. Praise God for the work He is doing through you and the Kamaras. The children are blessed.
