Having to switch to a soft food for a temporary time frame for a medical condition, I decided to try this. My rat terrier has a gluten allergy and it's been extremely hard to find food that his stomach and digestive system will tolerate. This food is the best ever. He literally gobbles it up. Has gained a little weight. His stool is smaller. And his coat is thicker and softer. And he visibly has more energy and just seems so much happier. Needless to say, I stayed with this food after his medical condition healed.
