Now for the pluses of Flint River:
Flint River Ranch dog food is not sold in regular retail stores where dog food is found. The only way to buy it is from the company direct or though a affiliate representative. The dog food comes in 20 lb bags and is delivered to your door by UPS. With the shipping costs already included in the price of the product, this helps to keep your all over cost down. Making it a reasonable costing product. Being the products have a good protein base and fat ratio. Plus having special formulas for special dogs makes it worth while looking into if you want to feed a premium dog food.
The negative is:
You can get the food in kibbles or crumbles. With the crumbles if you have sloppy eaters you can lose some of the food due to the small pieces in the crumbles Plus the reduced protein and fat for the money could be considered a negative. They also list Wheat as part of the formula, so if your dog has a problem with grain you are forced to their special formula.
NOW, what was the result of our little test?
I will have to say that there were some improvements in the Lab skin problem during the short time we were feeding Flint River Lamb and Mullet formula here at the kennels. However, our breeder was impressed with the dog food and it’s cost. And has decided to feed her house dogs with original Flint River. Along with the Lab who will be keep on the lamb & mullet feed.
A large percent of the benefits of feeding a special dog food like Flint River is in the long term gains of health for each dog. If you’re thinking of trying Flint River Ranch puppy & adult food or one of the special formulas keep in mind that to gain the most benefit from this holistic dog food you should feed it long term, as you would any premium dog food, to gain the maximum results. Would I recommend it? Yes! If you want a premium holistic dog food, and can live with a lower Protein and fat level along with a grain like wheat.
