We were able to try the full range of Brothers Complete products and I was very impressed. They are a small family-run company who obviously love dogs and are dedicated to superior dog nutrition. The dog food is produced in smaller batches and stored in cooler temperatures before it is shipped and contains four natural preservatives. Their extremely shiny bags are designed to maintain freshness. 90% of the protein is derived from human-grade animal sources, including Having read the book Dog Food Logic, I feel more comfortable interpreting ingredient panels. The first three ingredients of the Brothers Complete formulas are named meat meals and whole eggs. They use tapioca starch instead of grains or potatoes, which has a low glycemic index and pre-biotic properties.
One of the first things I do when examining a potential new food for our rotation is check their rating on Dog Food Advisor, which gives Brothers Complete their highest rating of five stars. The foods are formulated to address allergy issues through a multi-faceted approach: healing, balancing and maintaining gut health and were developed with the knowledge and observations made over years of running a dog food store. Something unique about Brothers Complete as a kibble company is that they are in support of a raw food diet, but recognize that it isn't for everyone.
My girls do not have any food allergies and I hope that I am helping to keep it that way by feeding them a variety of proteins. If they are eating a poultry-based food for breakfast I try to ensure that they are eating a red meat or fish protein at dinnertime. They have been eating the Brothers Complete Venison formula for almost a month now, and have been as excited about their kibble meals as their pre-made frozen raw meals. (I even used it as treats for their photo sessions!) They absolutely love the wonderfully crunchy meat-based dog biscuits, which they receive at bedtime. With Thanksgiving approaching I think they will enjoy the turkey formula next.
I feel great about offering Ruby and Boca a variety of proteins. At this time of year when we are indulging in a cornucopia of culinary options, it seems only right that my dogs have diversity in their diet. They have no problem switching between brands and formulas, but if your dog isn't accustomed to rotation, please transition slowly to any newly introduced foods. Here is an informative video about the benefits of protein rotation and how it is linked to allergy prevention. Brothers Complete was can be purchased through Amazon and directly from the company's website.
