Drools Chicken & Rice Puppy Food Review

Drools is one of the cheapest brands of dog food available in India and the reviews were not very flattering and that was the reason I always doubted it's quality. I got an unbelievable deal on it once and ended up getting a 20 Kgs bag of its "Chicken and Rice" variant for puppies.

The bag was black and blue in color unlike the red ones shown on the websites. The packaging was good and looked good too. The 20 Kgs bag's MRP is INR 2900 but you can buy it cheaper by following the steps mentioned in my another post here.

The kibble size is smaller as compared to other brands like Farmina, Royal Canin and Solid Gold. It smells like nothing, nothing really!!

I was feeding this to Leo only once a day and continued with his regular other brand food for the rest of the meals. After a month, I noticed worms in this food!! And when I emptied the bag, I found the bag was full of worms!! Don't believe me? Check out the pics below :)

I contacted the Drools officials and they replaced my bag in the next 4-5 days and collected this bag for quality check. I had bid adieu to Drools after this experience so I fed the new bag to Street dogs.

I know a lot of people are feeding Drools to their pets but for me that was the end.

Will I Buy It Again : Certainly not

  2. Hi
    How did leo react to the food otherwise?
    Was he energetic as regular and what about his stools??
    I am a rottweiler parent too.. :-)


    1. Hi Mahesh,

      Leo didn't show any noticeable change in his behavior or stool. Also, I had fed him Drools only once a day so major part of his diet was still other foods.

      How old is your Rottweiler and what is his/her name? Share some pics, would love to see them.
