Default Dogswell canned food - bargain

Went to Big Lots today just to look around and they had a large selection of dogswell canned foods for 50 cents each. Dogswell is very high quality canned food - usually runs $2.50 a can. The Big Lots we went to had a very good assortment of different types of this brand. No grains, wheat, or soy. Their Happy Hips canned has extra glucosamine/chondroitin.

Very good deal if you are looking for high quality canned food at a bargain price. I usually open a can, feed one or two meals out of it and then freeze the rest in ziplocks. It freezes fine and stays fresh that way.

Here's the lamb and sweet potato stew ingredients ....

Looks like good food and i would totally look it up if my dog didnt have food intolerance. I've never heard of this food. Is it only sold in your area?

Hi Vivid. No, it's sold all over. Here's the website...

http://www.dogswell.com/

I don't know what the red peppers are used for. Perhaps vitamin C. I would much prefer they didn't do any veggies at all, but I know some people like them.

Thanks,I will send the link to a friend who is looking to switch up her dogs food after me going on and on about Pedigree not being the best lol

Yeah some people like the added veggies but i would rather give the veggies myself once in a while then have it in the food.

They sell it at Petco and Petsmart, etc. It's a good brand, although I don't feed their jerky strips because the meat is sourced from China. I don't trust anything from China after all the pet food recalls.

Here's the petco link ....

Oh yeah, it's soooooooooooooooooo much better than Pedigree!!! Have your friend buy out the Big Lot supply in her city. LOL.

I agree, I prefer not to do veggies, but some people like opening a can of dog food and seeing peas, carrots, chunks of potato in there.

Oh, on the can of lamb that I bought - it says all lamb is sourced from New Zealand. That's good.

Never seen this and i go into petco often but i guess its because i go in, get what i need and leave.

Opening a bag of dry dog food and seeing colored shapes in the form of veggies scares me and i steer clear lol but i guess in canned dog food its alright.

I just emailed her the peto link so she can order some if she chooses. Yep, i also stay away from pet products and foods from china, better safe than sorry.
