Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food: Features

Roasted bison and venison come together to create a match made in heaven in this rich, meaty and highly digestible kibble. With fruits, vegetables, and legumes playing big supporting roles, this formula is packed full of the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants your puppy needs to grow up big and strong. 

Featuring Taste of the Wild’s proprietary K9 Strain Probiotics, each pound of this kibble provides 80 million live and active cultures that help to support the development of healthy digestive and immune systems. The kibble also contains dried chicory root, a potent prebiotic that feeds the probiotics in a puppy’s gut and helps keep the digestive tract running smoothly.

Rich in antioxidants from raspberries and blueberries, and delivering the exact levels of zinc and selenium your pup needs to stay healthy, there’s also plenty of DHA, an Omega-3 fatty acid sourced from sustainably caught Salmon, to help support brain and vision development.

We love that Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food has everything your puppy needs to thrive and none of what they don’t. This natural kibble is free from nasty fillers, artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, and it’s also grain, corn, and wheat-free. As close to the wild diet of their ancestors as possible, this formula is available in a range of sizes and also comes in a salmon flavor. 

Suitable for puppies from six weeks of age to 12 months, you can move over to the adult range after that, or for a similar high-quality alternative, we highly recommend Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Adult Dry Dog Food.

Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food: User reviews

One of the most popular puppy kibbles on the market, Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food scores an impressive average of 4.7 out of 5 stars across all the major retail outlets. Praised for its high-quality ingredient list and delicious taste that sees it gobbled up in seconds, this kibble gets the thumbs up from both humans and their furkids.

As one reviewer writes “I've been feeding my 3-month-old puppy TOTW buffalo & venison since I brought her home at 8 weeks old. She absolutely loves it! The bowl is always empty and she scarfs it down. She looks healthy and her coat is beautiful. I'm very pleased!” 

It’s a happy review seconded by another pet parent who shares the story of her puppy’s transformation after just a few days on this kibble “Mabel is a 6-month-old GSD mix puppy. After being on 3 other puppy foods prior, at the recommendation from a friend, we tried TOTW High Prairie Puppy. Mabel was having some stomach problems, wasn't interested in eating, had started to lose weight because she was vomiting up the food we had her on at the time(and no it wasn't cheap stuff), and also has a sensitivity to chicken. We took her to the vet and had a barium swallow and x-rays done just to be sure there wasn't an obstruction. Everything came back normal. So we bought a bag and after a few days on this food she is excited to eat, dances around her food dish, has more energy, and is back to acting like an energetic puppy!

While there aren’t many negative reviews of this product, the ones that do exist mention the high cost of this kibble and the smelly gas and stools that a small number of dogs have had as a result of eating it. Puppies with very sensitive digestive systems may find the roasted bison to be too rich, so it’s worth making a note if your fur baby experiences any upsets. That aside, thousands of happy reviewers suggest that this recipe is well worth a try. 

Should you buy Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food?

If you’re after a clean and natural food source for your pup that closely mimics what their ancestors would have eaten in the wild, then Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food is a winner in our book.

With a rich and meaty taste your puppy is sure to love and with all the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants their body needs to develop and thrive, this kibble offers outstanding nutrition that’s well worth the investment if your budget can stretch to it.
