i saw these in my neighborhood petstore today (they had 5 varieties for dogs) and picked two up for fun n'giggles, since the ingredients are not toooo bad for a mid-range product (i have seen much worse, LOL), and the price was ok ($1.29/ pouch). Figured to excite dakotah's taste buds & mix that in with his kibble tonight to get him to eat more (he's eating every single day now, but not enough yet in terms of calories).

so tonight he had this flavor: http://www.nutroproducts.com/ncdogpls.asp (Savory Lamb Stew Slices in Gravy ) and it smelled surprisingly good for a dog food. mixed one pouch with 3 cups of dry food, and he ate 2... then went to maika's bowl and stole a raw turkey thigh with bone, and most of the beef shank meat. what a gourmet! :rolleyes:

ps: this is a dog who shuns merrick & all other holistic canned food half the time :cool:

They'd be nice to have on road trips or packed in the trunk of the car for emergencies. The lady at the boutique pet food store gives away samples, tho, and free for little bags of canide(?), solid gold, etc. is even a better price. Guess I'm going to have to buy something one of these days. . .:D
