Taste of the Wild

December 31st, 2007, 02:55 PM
Does anyone in Ontario know where you can get "Taste of the Wild"???
I have been unable to find it in Barrie,Ont.

I am interested in it because it is grainless and it has a lower protein content than the others.

I think that Timberwolf Organics and the new 'Now!' by Petcurean may also be options. I know that their cat food formulations are lower in protein than others, and that they are grain-free. Are those available to you? Good luck out there in Ontario. :pawprint:

Thanx. I am able to find Timberwolf and Petcurean. Timberwolf is on my list of possibles for when my pup finishes up with her Solid Gold Puppy.
I just heard that Wellness is coming out with a fish formula grainless food. I am excited about this product and it should be coming out in the next few months. She is crazy for anything fish!!

I would go with the Wellness or Go Natural (Petcurean). Taste of the Wild is manufactured by Diamond which makes too many different brands in the same plant which makes me worry about cross contamination. :shrug:

Yes Rainbow I agree- I feel a little nervous about Diamond. I just received word from Taste of the Wild re availability in Canada. This food does rate 6on the scale ( so hopefully it too is a good option for people. I will attach the info.
