it's been a while since my last post. Last time I was feeding Elsa with Arden Grange large puppy when I've noticed her coat was turning to brown (she is a Mantle from Harlequin + Black) and more and more "cuts" on her paws. On top of that, randomly, she had the runnings. Our vet didn't want to run any test to exclude allergies or intolerances because she thought it wasn't necessary; but she suggested to think of changing diet / food. So I did.
Raw is not an option for me, so I didn't even consider that and wanted to stay on dry food. Few options on the list but in the end, after speaking with Gentle, was to order the first bag.
I've had a great support (and I'm still having a great support every time I call to place a new order), with precious suggestions to start with and as soon as the food arrived I've started immediately to feed Elsa with it. I remember I was running out of AG and was a bit worried because of the transition time. Elsa had no issue at all and she liked the new food straight away (which was a good starting point). After few weeks came the big surprise: her coat was turning to black again, not just black..super shiny polished black...no runnings and her paws soft and smooth again. I was simply delighted! Since then I of course carried on feeding her with Gentle and another thing I have noticed is that she doesn't smell at all (which I guess is food related as well).
The news is that few weeks ago we have adopted Odin, a 2 y.o Blue Great Dane. He was on raw diet and after talking to the breeder about the chance of changing his diet to dry food, we started to feed him as well with Gentle. Results: I have a very shiny Blue Gentle Giant, who likes his food a lot, is in great health condition and great shape too!. In Odin's case I am starting noticing the same improvement in the smell as well...it had a quite strong one when he arrived but is now progressively loosing it.
So, all in all, I'm very very happy with this food...highly recommended!!
