Farmina N&D Low Grain Chicken & Pomegranate Puppy Food Review

After giving Solid Gold Hundchen Flocken Puppy Food a try, I returned back to Farmina N&D LG Puppy Food for Maxi Breed as this has been the best dog food I have come across till now. Leo had been resisting Solid Gold like anything and preferred to stay hungry over eating Solid Gold. I was afraid to open my Farmina 12 Kgs bag as I was still wondering if he was resisting only Solid Gold or was he not willing to eat any dog food!! I didn't want to waste 12 Kgs of premium dog food. Lets see how Leo responded to Farmina.

Farmina comes in a beautiful bag and I really like the look of it. Just like Solid Gold, even Farmina's bag does not have a zipper and need to be stored carefully, once opened. It costs INR 6180 for a 12 kgs bag but you can get it cheaper by following the steps mentioned in my post here.


Product Description :

The evolution of dogs and cats was similar to that of predators, so their anatomy is structured to essentially carnivorous diet. Despite the outward differences of race, all dogs are descended from their wild ancestor, the gray wolf, with whom they share 99.8 percent of their genetic code. Therefore, just as their ancestors, our dogs and cats prefer eating carnivore, that’s why in terms of anatomical feature they have: Sharp and pointed teeth to tear meat, jaw joint that allows a wide mouth opening for the ingestion of large pieces of meat, a short digestive system simply structured with a strong acidic gastric pH suitable to digest and metabolize proteins, therefore meat.

Farmina kibbles are average in size and good enough for my Rottweiler puppy. They are dark brown in color and have a strong distinct smell. When touched, they leave some oil in your hands. Its low in grain and the ingredient list is much better compared to other dog foods available in India. Protein content is high too.

As soon as I opened the packet, Leo was tempted by its smell [aroma?]. I offered him a handful of kibbles, he smelled and sniffed and that's it. My heart broke :( !! What was I supposed to do with it now? Throw it? Donate it to street dogs? Give it to some one else who owns a dog? I could do that but then what was I going to feed to Leo? I wanted to tell him "Leo, this is not Solid Gold, this is Farmina, your favorite, you remember?".  I could no way do that so I opened his mouth and put a kibble in his mouth and asked him to eat, he obeyed!! Now, I offered him the kibbles again and he started eating, yay!! Mission Completed!! :D

So finally, Leo is eating Farmina and now I know that the problem was not with the dog foods but with Solid Gold. Somehow, Leo didn't seem to like it at all. I am happy I got Farmina for him this time and would mention again that its the best dog food I have come across till now.

    1. Hi Shweta,

      That's really sad but that has nothing to do with Farmina. All the dogs shed in this season in India and so is with my dog, Leo. Even he has been shedding a lot since last one month.
