Anyone using Satori? Can anyone provide some information on the manufacturer of Satori? My local "high-end" dog/cat store has really been pushing this Canadian brand of kibble.

Here is the ingredient list for the dog chicken recipe:

Hi Myka :)

Overall, it looks pretty good! The one thing I don't agree with though is they state it's for dogs who have allergies and sensitivities, but there are way too many ingredients for that. I would actually consider it, but Nookie can't have tomatoes (too acidic for him) and is allergic to carrots. Are you looking at this for your food sensitive girl? If so, we have finally found one that seems to be working great for Nookie. It's not the easiest food to find, but if you have a store you normally deal with, they would be able to order it for you (that's what we did).

Salmon Meal, Potatoes, Chicken Fat (Naturally preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Smoked Salmon, Dried Blueberries, Dried Cranberries, Dried Raspberries, Calcium Carbonate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Kelp Meal, Flaxseed Meal, Calcium Propionate, Zinc Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Ferrous Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Calcium Iodate, Cobalt Carbonate, Sodium Selenite, Vitamin E Supplement, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B3), D-Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Vitamin A Supplement, Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Folic Acid (Vitamin B9), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement

Even though Nookie is allergic to chicken, the chicken fat doesn't bother him at all. The ingredients are very limited. The only things I don't like about this food are the minerals are not chelated and there are no probiotics. But, that being said, all you have to do is supplement the probitiocs, which is what we have done. To keep his skin issues/itchies at bay, it's worth it :)

We did try the Carna4 (at $180 for a 13KG bag!), but he had horrible diarrhea, as did Thorin. Expensive doesn't mean good or that it will work! It may be good food, but neither of mine could tolerate it.

Hi Rgeurts,

Yeah, I was thinking of trying it for Roxy, but now I've seen the ingredients I agree with you that it isn't the best choice for allergies/sensitivities. I'm still having troubles with her. I will see if my food store can order the one in that you suggest. I might have to go raw with her though...ugh. $$$
