2 reviews for ASPIRE Chicken & Rice Formula

  1. Kaylee

    I started my American Staffordshire Terrior Shepard mix puppy on the Canine Health Forward Aspire dog food and have been very satisfied with the results thus far. I have noticed a significant difference in his body condition and during the transition from his old food to this formula he would pick out the Aspire kibbles and eat them before he would touch his old dog food. I have also noticed that I feed about 1/2 the amount of the Aspire as the old food I had him on but still see better condition, making this product an extremely economical choice.

    We love this food for both our golden retriever and black lab! Tried several brands of food, this is by far the best
