6 reviews for COMPLEAT Chicken & Rice Formula

  1. Angela

    I totally recommend this food for any dog. It is affordable, high quality food that both of my dogs(6 year old greyhound and 13 year old bull terrier) have been eating for over a year and are doing quite well on. They have great coats on this food and who doesn’t love a nice shiny coat. They are not gassy, thank goodness because dog farts are the worst. There is far less mess to pickup in the yard than if they ate any of the grocery store dog foods that are full of undigestable fillers. They are healthy as can be eating this food and they love it. It is a nice small size kibble that is quite easy for my elderly dog, who is missing a few teeth, to eat. So what are you waiting for! Feed your dog this amazing food! You won’t regret it!

    First, I have (2) Great Pyrenees and (1) Newfoundland.

    My Newf will eat anything and everything with no digestive issues whatsoever, and I feed her a combination diet of kibble, fruits, vegetables and proteins. She is in excellent health, with a nice, black shiny Newf coat.

    My 2 Pyrs, on the other hand, have very, very sensitive stomachs and I have to be very careful about what I feed them, and do not include fruits or vegetables in their diets, as they will not touch them. I had been feeding Canidae for many years, when I was recently introduced to Canine Health Forward COMPLEAT. Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe. This is an Ultra Super Premium Dog Food. When I first learned about it, I asked a LOT of questions, received samples, and all 3 of my dogs LOVED it! My dogs are my life, and I take the decision on what to feed them very seriously! The true benefits which I noticed were:.

    Completely solid stools from all 3 dogs on a consistent basis
    Less food required due to the density
    A bit more spring in their step, especially with my 11 year old senior Pyrenees ! How fun is that?
    And my Pyrenees now eat ALL their meals ALL the time!
    COAT – gorgeous!

    Win/win in my book by far!

  3. Mike Borud

    Healthiest dog food ever.

  4. Jessica

    Loving this dog food! Wish I had found sooner for my previous pets!

  5. Jennifer L. (verified owner)

    We’re so grateful for this brand! Both dogs love it and the lessened waste we’re picking up confirms it’s so much better than other brands. Their coats are healthier and shinier. Their oral health has also improved and they’re digestion has improved too! This is their forever brand!

  6. Steve M (verified owner)

    We have two couch potatoes/recreational runners. After researching a bunch of “big” brands and getting turned off by the ingredients and other items I started the dogs on the COMPLEAT formula. They have been on it for several years and are doing awesome. The dogs are lean and in great shape for 10-year-olds. Commonly people think they are pups! Their coats are healthy and full, especially good in the winter. They also have normalized their pattern of polluting the back yard.

    AND, in addition to the great dog food, the PEOPLE at Canine Health Forward are very responsive and full of good advice. If you don’t follow them on social media, you should! I have purchased their products at their store and other places’ as well as having it shipped to me. Once, I contacted them because I was almost out of food (dumb me) and was told they could mail me a small bag right away so that I had enough while the bigger bag shipped. Let’s see the big brands do that!
