Zignature is a US based dog food company with 8 different dry food recipes and 9 wet food recipes. They sent us coupons to try 2 of their dry food recipes with Gracie and Echo- the Zssential Formula and the Trout & Salmon Meal Formula. I have heard great things about both of these foods so I was excited to try them out with Echo and Gracie.
Zignature’s food is formulated for All Life Stages, meaning that their food meets the nutrition requirements for dogs of all ages. This was important to me since Echo is still a puppy and needs food that meets the requirements for his growing body.
When looking at new foods, I always go check the ratings on Dog Food Advisor’s website. Dog Food Advisor gave Zignature’s Zssentials Formula their highest rating of 5 stars and the Trout & Salmon their second highest of 4.5 stars. Dog Food Advisor also breaks down the ingredients list and highlights in red the ingredients that may be controversial or bad.
A few things I love about Zignature’s recipes are that they are meat first, grain and potato free, and packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that dogs need. Meat should be your dogs’ primary source of protein. Many dog food companies fill their foods with grains and vegetable proteins in order to not have to include as much meat. Zignature is grain free and rich in animal protein. The Zssential Formula is a multi protein recipe with turkey, lamb, duck, & salmon. The Trout & Salmon Meal Formula is also meat first, but only includes Trout and Salmon as the animal protein source.
Gracie and Echo really enjoyed both of these Zignature recipes. Personally I would favor the Zssential Formula, however the Trout & Salmon Meal might be better for a dog with allergies. They had clean bowls with every meal! Gracie, my picky eater, even ate all of her food with Zignature! The dogs definitely give Zignature 5 paws up.You can find Zignature at a local pet store using their locator or you can purchase it through Chewy.com. I would recommend this food for anyone looking for a meat first, wholesome dog food.
Thanks for reading,
Katie, Gracie, and Echo
