Solid Gold is considered one of the top brands of pet food. Their Hundchen Flocken formula is made with USDA choice lamb and lamb meal, just like their adult formula Hund-n-Flocken. These protein sources are the first two ingredients in the food. The lamb is guaranteed to come from healthy sources, unlike many other companies that use products such as animal digest. Lamb is highly recommended for puppies with digestive issues, and because the protein sources are first ingredients, your puppy is getting more nutrition out of a smaller amount of food, meaning that 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.
Solid Gold does not include any corn, wheat, or soy in their food because many dogs have food allergies to those ingredients. Solid Gold only adds nutritious whole grains such as millet, cracked pearled barley, and brown rice. Millet is a non-allergenic, high quality grain that is easily digested. Barley is a healthy source of carbohydrate energy and B vitamins, and rice is also a high quality grain and a good source of carbohydrates, fiber, and protein.
Hundchen Flocken contains only healthy fats, such as salmon oil, a great sources for Omega-3, and canola, which provides linoleic acid. It also includes flaxseed, which is an excellent source of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Other dog food companies often use chicken fat as their fat source, which can go rancid in the package and is a very unhealthy fat.
This food is perfect for puppies, especially those 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.

Shiny coated puppies :)
I used to feed all of my dogs a different brand until I did some research and found out what is really in a lot of dog foods. Solid Gold uses way better ingredients than all of those other companies. Now that I've been feeding it, people who come to look at my puppies always comment on their shiny coats. I also feel good that I'm providing a healthy beginning for all of the puppies I sell.
