Solid Gold is one of the top brands of pet food. Their Hund-n-Flocken formula is made with USDA choice lamb and lamb meal, which are the first two ingredients in the food. Lamb is highly recommended for dogs with digestive issues, and the meat is guaranteed to come from healthy sources, unlike other companies that use products such as animal digest. Because the protein source is first ingredient, your dog is getting more nutrition out of a smaller amount of food, and there is also less waste in their system. It is important to note that this is a single-protein source food, which is beneficial for dealing with allergies.
Many dogs have food allergies to corn, wheat, or soy, and Solid Gold does not include any of those things in their food. They only add nutritious whole grains such as brown rice, cracked pearled barley, and millet.
Rice is a good quality grain and is a source of fiber, carbohydrates, and protein. Barley is a healthy source of carbohydrate energy and B vitamins. Millet is also a high quality grain that is non-allergenic and easily digested.
Solid Gold also uses only healthy fats in their foods, such as canola, which provides linoleic acid, and salmon oil, a great sources for Omega-3. They also add flaxseed, an excellent source of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Other companies often use chicken fat as their fat source, which is a very unhealthy fat and can also go rancid in the package.
This food is perfect for adult dogs suffering from food allergies and digestion issues. Some signs of food allergies include licking and chewing at the feet and base of the tail, as well as skin problems, such as flakes and hot spots.

This is a really great dog food! It is great for digestion & keeps the dog regular. She also loves to eat it!
Itching and bald spots are gone!
Our pug had horrible food allergies. We started her on Solid Gold a few months ago now, after trying several other foods. This is the brand that has clearly improved her allergies the most. Her bald spots and itching have gone away, and the changes happened in a really short period of time. Her coat looks fabulous, and she hasn't had any problems with hot spots since we put her on this. She loves it!
long lived dogs with hunden flocken !
I have been feeding the lamb and rice formula and wolf king since 97, I noticed the change in my dogs within days. Their coats are shinier and they have less trips to the vet, because they are healthier. I have had some of the longest lived bullmastiffs consistently because of this food. A 13 year old male, unheard of and many 12 year olds. Currently have a 12 year old male who has been on it all his life. It's to the point now that if they die before 12 I am disappointed. Yes it costs more, but I save vetwise bigtime, not one bladder infection since switching. I highly recommend this food, if you really love your pets like I do, you will switch to solid gold. I supplement with seameal and msm also as I feel this makes a difference as well. I feed my cats (3) the catfood and they are nice and healthy as well.
I just recently switched both of my dogs to the same dog food. They absoultly love the Hund-n-Flocken dog food.
