DogTipper Review: We recently reported on Holistic Select’s online pet health tool, the Holistic Select Health Scale, which lets pet parents determine how well they are doing in promoting their pet’s total health. Of course, one part of your dog’s total health is his food so we were very eager to try Holistic Select food as well.
Holistic Select markets a comprehensive line of wet and dry dog foods with specific formulas for dogs of various ages, sizes, and activity levels. All of the formulas are based on the company’s holistic philosophy which combines natural foundation proteins, adds grains and healthy fats then fortifies the formula with specific “Select Active” ingredients:
enzymes, live micro-organisms, botanicals and phytonutrients
with the goal of creating a food which nourishes a dog’s total health.
We were recently invited to try out one of their dry dog food formulas: Select Radiant Adult Health, Anchovy, Sardine and Salmon Meal Recipe. The resealable 6-pound bag displays a hefty ingredients list:
Anchovy, Sardine & Salmon Meal, Oatmeal, Ground Brown Rice, Ground White Rice, Canola Oil (Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols), Dried Beet Pulp, Menhaden Fish Oil, Flaxseed, Dried Egg Product, Carrots, Sun-Cured Alfalfa, Peas, Potassium Chloride, Organic Quinoa, Apples, Blueberries, Cranberries, Dried Kelp, Yucca Schidigera Extract, DL-Methionine, Vitamins [Beta-Carotene, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Niacin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Biotin], Minerals [Polysaccharide Complexes of Zinc, Iron, Manganese and Copper, Cobalt Carbonate, Potassium Iodate, Sodium Selenite], Choline Chloride, Lecithin, Rosemary Extract, Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Inulin, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Enterococcus faecium, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus licheniformis, Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus niger Fermentation Products, Mixed Tocopherols (a natural preservative).
Holistic Select Radiant Adult Health food doesn‘t contain wheat, soy, artificial preservatives, colors, or flavorings.
Irie and Tiki obviously approved of Select Health, as they quickly cleaned their plates and wagged for more. Given the seafood protein base of this formula, they may have thought they were being allowed to eat cat food (always a big thrill for them).
The Holistic Select Radiant Adult Health dry foods for dogs includes several other adult formulas:
- Chicken Meal & Rice
- Duck Meal
- Lamb Meal
as well as formulas specifically for puppies, small breeds, large breeds, seniors, and a weight-management formula. We also reviewed the Holistix treats from Holistic Select.
We think Holistic Select Radiant Adult Health food deserves a paws up for their holistic vision, the scope of their offerings and the quality of their ingredients. Irie and Tiki agree that it also tastes good!
Price: $17.49 for a 6-pound bag.
