Taste of the Wild PREY  Review – Four Weeks Later

We’ve been home a few weeks now since our epic cross country road trip to Blog Paws.   We drove over 3,000 miles.  It was also when I switched Maggie and Orbit to Taste of the Wild PREY.

Why PREY

I was attracted to PREY because it’s a limited ingredient dog food.  Maggie’s been symptom free for most of this year, and Orbit’s yeast issues have finally subsided.  Getting them to a healthy state has been a journey that spanned over a year with the guidance of three different vets.  I scrutinize over food labels and watch the girls like a hawk.  The last thing I want to do is to give them anything that will cause their allergy and yeast symptoms to reappear.

PREY formulas contain four or fewer minimally processed key ingredients. They have four key ingredients: real cage-free turkey, spring-fed trout or pasture-raised Angus beef, plus lentils, tomato pomace and sunflower oil.   I selected the Angus beef option for Maggie and Orbit and I’ve kept the girls on PREY since the trip.  I wanted to do a follow up to our first post on PREY to report how things have been for us.

But First ….Spring Cleaning

I came home to two weeks’ worth of laundry.  And a pile of chores that I didn’t have a chance to accomplish prior to the trip.  I had two choices, try to decide what do focus on or start from the top.

So I decided to spring clean the house.  Crazy I know to even consider after being gone that long.  But I knew that investing in this project would settle me back in and there’s nothing better than having a home that is fresh and clean.

Also I’ve learned over these past months, to look at things as a whole.  If I’m making an improvement in one part of our lives, I have to see if there are other areas that also need work. We have holistic viewpoint on how we run our home.

We started off by dusting all the bedrooms, washing all the windows, mopping all the floors.  The sofa cushions, all the dog’s beds and the few rugs were deep cleaned.   We spent an afternoon going through our closets to declutter and send items to goodwill as well as clean out our desks and drawers from unnecessary papers and items that tend to pile up.  In actuality the spring cleaning process took no more than three solid days.

Our celebratory treats to ourselves was to buy new white sheets.  Orbit’s napping on them below.

Healthy and Happy

As I look at Orbit, I feel a sense of relief.  For over a year we were battling yeast and allergy issues with her.  Her face had gotten so bad that she had dandruff and pustules in the area between her eyes and ears.  It was dry and flakey and I’d have to clean it off on a regular basis.  Her ears were so yeasty that I had to clean them every other day.  Her belly would also break out into rashes.  She had night sweats because her gut wasn’t in balance.  I’d have to wipe her down nightly and powder her up.  She was high maintenance to put it quite mildly.

It was quite noticeable and I’d often get questions from other concerned dog parents not only on our Instagram but when they would meet her.

As you can all of those yeast and allergy symptoms are no longer there.  Her fur has grown back in the areas it had previously thinned and her coat looks shiny and healthy.

My vet always asks … how are your dogs?  Do they look happy and healthy?  And as I look at Orbit in particular I can say  “YES – she’s happy and healthy” with confidence!

Observations of the food switch after a few weeks on Taste of the Wild PREY

– No signs of coat dulling, getting brittle, or skin drying out

– No signs of yeast coming back

– No signs of rash on her belly

– No signs of her licking her paws

– Number two (poop) movements are normal – nothing is out of the ordinary

In summary Orbit looks great!  And I’d have to say Maggie looks fantastic as well.

In my previous blog post, I wrote about why we decided to try Taste of the Wild PREY.   You can read that article via this link.

I also list the highlights below:

  • The main reason PREY stood out is because it is a limited ingredient diet with a select few, minimally processed ingredients.
  • It’s made with zero grains, non-GMO ingredients and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
  • They don’t render and they don’t use any “meals”.
  • The company is family owned and has a commitment to quality and testing.

Our dogs are special and unique

We consider Maggie and Orbit to be part of the family.  Just as I have conducted my own research, I encourage you to do your own.  I will leave links to various sites for you to get started off with.   And if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments below or by sending me a direct message through any of our social media platforms.

    I love that you keep checking in with the food over a few weeks. It takes time for a new food to settle in with your dog, and especially for skin issues to clear up. It’s so great that this is working for the girls!

    Oh man, I haven’t had a dog with allergies so I can’t only imagine your worry for Orbit. I’m so glad she’s doing better and I hope the food is helping keep her stable!

    Four ingredients sounds good, especially since it’s still AAFCO compliant for all life stages of dogs. I’m so happy that Orbit is doing well with Taste of the Wild Prey. No one wants to see their pup itching and suffering. I can’t even imagine how scary night sweats were for her. And when one pup is uncomfortable, who knows how the other pup may respond, so it’s good to hear that Maggie is happy with the new food as well. As a minimalist who does believe in “less is more,” I’m re-thinking our kibble choice.
