My boy has pancreatitis and it seems to have been mild, after months of home cooking and using a nutritionist we got him back to full health and now we are using Different Dog. The quality of the food is extremely impressive, I have tried Butternut box but the fat content after calculating dry matter is not suitable for a dog like mine, where as Different Dog's trim me turkey and catch of the day are. They also don't add silly fillers like lentils and legumes. Very happy customer so far and hope my fussy boy continues to love this food.

I love this food. I wanted to go fresh for my dogs and first tried Butternut box, but the legumes in all their recipes didn’t agree with one of my dogs.
I switched to different dog and it’s perfect. I love warming it up for my 15 year old dog to spoil her, she loves it and I feel good about giving her the best food I can.
Only downside is the different dog website, it definitely needs some work, but we get there in the end.

I'm about to give this a go. Our dogs are on Butternut Box at the moment but I am concerned about the high number of lentils, peas, potato and beans in their recipes (every single recipe contains lots of them). I know the jury is out on legumes at the moment, but I thought if I could mix it up a bit the percentage of legumes in their diets will be reduced. This is still grain free by the looks of it, but with considerably less legumes. I will come back after they try it with their verdict.

I tried my pup on Butternut box too, he didn't really like it. I found the texture to be a little strange and it was very strong smelling on the herb side.
Switched to Different Dog and honestly, it sounds cliché but he really is a different dog! He gets super excited about his food now and polishes off the whole bowl in one go. This in the only dog food he's ever done that with and we've tried a few including dry, raw and homecooked. This is just like what I'd want to make him at home if I had the time and inclination to do that but now I've found this, I don't have to worry about home cooking and him potentially not getting all the nutrients he needs. It is expensive for dog food but it's worth it! Gets my vote.

Had a little problem with first order delay but my fussy staffy X licks the bowl inside and out. We are only just beginning with this food but with the variety provided, I'm hoping we found our niche. The veg in the food is super cool!!! And, may I say that her digestion has changed. Also, there is NO flatulence which, most of you know, is a Godsend. AND it is missing the usual dogfood smell which replicated in her faecies. It looks delicious enough for a human to eat. No worries, I won't.....

So far so good with Different Dog. Switched my Chihuahua over from Butternut Box because Different Dog have more variety and the food comes in a cardboard container, not plastic. My dog tends to have a poor appetite. Not with Different Dog! One month in and he's still clearing his bowl regularly. The ordering process is a little confusing but the staff are super helpful. The food looks and smells delicious. Although pricier, it's good value for a small dog and I waste less than I used to. Thumbs up for Different Dog from me.

I too was with Butternut Box for a long time but, as you say, they only have a limited variety. 4. I did not like the smell and the lumps of fat I had to pick out every time I cut open the messy pouches. So, hopefully, up and onwards from now.

This is the first food that my dog actually thrives on and doesn’t cause me tons of food wastage! Thank goodness for Different Dog! I highly recommend this food, especially for fussy dogs.
