Default Anyone try Tylee's?

Has anyone tried Tylee's? It's supposed to be a human grade food. I've been giving Cuddles freeze dried raw, but she seems like she's a little bored of it. Chewy.com is (or at least was, not sure if they still are) giving away free 50 oz bags, so I tried it. She seems to like it, except she seems to be leaving most of the veggies on her plate.

Does this seem like a good thing to feed her for when she gets bored of freeze-dried? If she starts eating the veggies, of course, which could be a problem.

Ingredients
Chicken Heart, Deboned Chicken, Chicken Liver, Water (Sufficient For Processing), Spinach, Celery, Carrots, Peas, Apples, Tricalcium Phosphate, Chia Seeds, Ground Flaxseed, Sunflower Oil, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Cod Liver Oil Powder, Dried Parsley, Dried Kelp, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, Rosemary Extract, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate.

Caloric Content
1,677 kcal/kg, 254 kcal/cup


She's such a picky little girl. She gets bored of the eating the same thing. I was thinking about home cooking for her, but then I found this. Will probably rotate between this and freeze-dried if I decide to keep feeding this.

If she ate the veggie chunks, she couldn't digest them anyway. I won't feed foods with veggie chunks like that because it is part of the nutrition profile of the food, but dogs can't digest them to get the nutrients out. There are plenty if high-quality foods out there that are made for dogs to eat rather than for people to look at. I would go to your local independent dog food store and see what they recommend. You live near a huge metro area, so there should be something like that near you.

Reta is right. You have to blend vegies so that dogs can digest them. Some people feed their dogs carrots etc whole, and they do OK, but generally vegies and friuits have to be ground up.

Well, that's very disappointing. I thought I found them something very good for them to have. I guess I'll just stick with freeze-dried raw once they're done with what I bought them.

You could try switching between different brands and flavors of freeze-dried raw with each bag or each month to keep her interest and give her valuable variety. High quality kibble is a great choice too, and also can be switched up regularly.

I buy different brands of grain free dog food each time I buy a new bag. That way the dogs get a different taste, hopefully.
