Has anyone fed food from Mulligan Stew Pet Food?

Today, while at Metro Pet, picking up the usual assortment of cans for the kids I got some cans of food that they had just got in. It is called Mulligan Stew. Metro is the first store in Canada to get it, but it is available in the US. I am wondering if anyone has fed it, and what the results have been. Kurt and Ross at the shop are very impressed with it so we decided to try some. If the kids like it, we will add it to the rotation in their foods.

Their web site is: www.mulliganstewpetfood.com/index.php

It's okay. I'm indifferent to it. It is a pretty okay brand though. Would not recommend for dogs with allergies because some of their ingredients I've noticed a bit allergenic.

Thanks for the input Kathryn.

We have tried a can of each variety with our kids. Overall, they seem pretty much indifferent to it, with the exception of the Salmon which they pretty much avoided after a few bites. By their reactions, I think we will stick with continuing to alternate Evo and Wysong canned.

Our puppy Cleo would not touch the canned dog food. She seems pretty much stuck on Wysong Pheasant with the occasional dive into the cats wet food.

As an occasional meal, it probably wouldn't hurt, but I'm not sure it's balanced enough for everyday feeding. There's no taurine, and the calcium/phosphorus ratio is a little off (not enough calcium, IMO). As well, cats need vit A, they can't convert beta-carotene. And they spelt cabbage wrong (assuming that that's what they meant by "cabbabe" :rolleyes:).
