Abady Dog Food

Abady dog food makes some pretty interesting claims about dog nutrition. For example, under the “Exclusive Features” of their diets, they state that their current line of dog food is “closest in design to Nature’s diets for carnivores formulated by any company”. Also, they state that a dog food formula can’t be complete without animal fat and meat by-products. How nutritious is Abady dog food? Do their formulas live up to their claims?

Who is Abady Manufactured By?

The company who makes Abady dog food is called The Robert Abady Dog Food Company. Aside from making food for dogs, Abady also offers several formulas designed for cats. The founder of Abady, named Robert Abady, has written many articles on various websites about his different approach to dog nutrition.

Abady Ingredients

An interesting feature of Abady dog food is that it excludes ingredients that contain saponin. These excluded ingredients are soybeans, beet pulp, alfalfa, oats, tomato pomace, sorghum, peas, beans, potatoes, garlic and yucca. Allegedly, some people believe saponin to cause bloat in dogs. Also, Abady dog food does not contain ingredients such as beet pulp, cellulose flour and sodium bentonite, which are called by the company “artificial stool-forming agents” that “reduce nutrient values”. Abady dog food also claims that white rice is superior to brown rice, and uses white rice in many of their formulas. The reason behind this claim allegedly is that “brown rice contains gluten which can permanently damage the dog’s ability to absorb nutrients”. Other interesting ingredients are bone meal, lard, menhaden fish fat, “stomach substance” and undefatted beef liver.

Abady Allergies

Abady dog food formulas do not appear to contain any soy, which is one of the most common allergens that can cause allergic symptoms in some dogs. However, due to the different nutritional approach of Abady’s dog food ingredients, it’s best if you clearly read the list of ingredients if your dog has a specific known food allergy.

    We had a golden that had epileptic seizures. They started infrequently and increased to weekly. We researched Abady and decided to give it a try. Almost to the day we started feeding him the fresh meat Abady food (this was about 17 years ago) his seizures ceased and never occurred again the rest of his life (about 6 years). Absolute truth and nothing else changed in his life but the food. I swear by this stuff

  • Craig Schmidt

    i have used abady for the life of my two chinese cresteds(ages 7 and 6). They are always in perfect health. our vet is always amazed at how well they are and trim to boot. to me the companie’s ideas make perfect common sense. What i dont get is why people still purchase grain based dog food at all. Dogs dont eat that stuff in the wild. people bash this company but never give any really good reasons for it. oh well, their loss.

      Abady Recall Information 6/20/2013

      {Taken from the letter.}

      “After so many years of making frozen foods we have to give you the bad news that we have voluntarily recalled two of our limited specialty products:

      1. Abady Frozen High Stress/High Performance Dog Food 3 lbs
      2. Abady Frozen Growth Formula for Puppies of the Large & Giant Breed 31bs.

      The decision was made due to a positive salmonella test by the FDA. At this time we are removing the products from the market place.”

  • valarie

    I am new to Abady–at this point I am feeding the canned for older dogs. I have 4 yorkies that love it-At this point I am starting to see changes (for the better) with their coats & the usual small dog eye drainage. I also have an Aussie, that I am currently switching to the Abady new frontier kibble. So far I am really happy with the product & the customer service,they have answered all of my questions.

  • Russo

    I have recently began feeding my Rottweiler puppy, Abady State of the Art Granular for Large Breed puppies. At 11 weeks she is almost 18 pounds and muscular. Her coat is shiny already and she has great energy. In addition, I have contacted Abady directly with questions about the food and been able to speak to one of their specialist about any and every issue, as the breeder had the puppies on Puppy Chow and my pup had diarrhea during the switch. I did an instant switch, so she had to get used to it.

    My Rottweiler loves the food! After seeing how they took my calls and returned my calls, I was sold for life. They are more than a dog food company. They actually care about the dogs.

  • Chris

    I have a 10 & half year old male choc lab with Addison’s disease that I’ve been adding the granular to his other food for years. It’s been great for him, I may wean him to an all Abady diet soon…

  • Terry B

    I fed ABADY State of the Art Maintenance&Stress to my working Rottie and Aussie in the past. I have to admit that they looked beautiful from their shiny coats, white teeth, good weight, bright eyed, firm stools, etc.etc. while they were eating this product. However, due to several working dog websites and peer pressure, I switched them to a raw diet. My Rottie refused to eat anything raw and began losing weight no matter how I doctored it up. The Aussie loved the raw. I tried a few grain-free products (Timberwolf, NOW, Caviar to name a few) and settled on Orijen over a year ago. There’s no question that Orijen’s ingredients are superior, however, my dogs do not look as good as they did while on ABADY. With Orijen, I’m feeding my 110lb Rottie 2 1/2 cups twice per day, his coat is fairly dry looking to me and he is barely maintaining his proper working weight. When fed ABADY granular, I fed him 3 1/2 cups (mixed with water to a paste consistency) split into 2 feedings daily.
    I spoke with an animal nutritionist, who toured the ABADY plant a few years ago, she told me that ABADY processes the ingredient individually before adding them together unlike other processed dry foods. In my uneducated opinion, this means less over processing of some important ingredients. Another plus is their use of natural Vit E vs synthetic Vit E which might have to do with some of the benefits of the food. I’m talking myself into switching back to ABADY when I’m almost out of my 2 bags of Orijen.

    • Red

      So if your dog doesn’t look as good on Orijen, how could the ingredients be better? That makes no sense at all.

      • TerryB

        What I meant was that the list of ingredients in Orijen seems to be superior to other kibbles, however, if they are over-processing, those ingredients lose their nutritional value while leaving ABADY a more nutritious feed.

      • Clay B

        ‘Being better’ in regards to ingredients is a matter of opinion. In my opinion they are not better and Abady ingredients are superior. One main reason for this is Orijien ingredients start off good but later your will find the feed loaded up with plant matter. Me personally, I would be very skeptical of any food containing common lawn weeds in the ingredients (dandelion). In all fairness, yes I am extremely biased, I feel Abady feeds are simply the best. My dog (10 year old Field Setter) had been on Abady granular feeds since being a 3 month old pup. I will never switch my dogs food.

        • Mari

          In response to Clay B., the following information was taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dandelion:

          Dandelions have been gathered for food since prehistory. Dandelion leaves and buds have been a part of traditional Sephardic, Chinese, and Korean cuisine. The flower petals, along with other ingredients, are used to make Dandelion Wine. The ground, roasted roots can be used as a caffeine-free Dandelion Coffee. Dandelion was also traditionally used to make the traditional British soft drink “Dandelion and Burdock,” and is one of the ingredients of Root Beer. Dandelions were once delicacies eaten by the Victorian gentry mostly in salads and sandwiches. The plant was used by Native Americans as a food and medicine.

          Dandelion leaves contain abundant vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins A, C and K, and are good sources of calcium, potassium, iron and manganese. The leaves contain more iron and calcium than spinach.

    I have used almost all of the Abady diets over the course of 25+ years. I have had ZERO problems with my dogs and they are in exellent condition. My 10 yr old min pin has never been vetted except to be neuterd and is in perfect health. He doesnt even look ten and runs around like a three year old. I highly reccomed these diets. I have shown MANY dogs on them and they have always been in increadible shape

    I have been feeding my labs Abady N.P.F. (Natural Power Formula) for many years – I am extremely happy with the food – as far as cost – all raw foods are expensive but everyone -including my vets – always comment on the great shape my dogs are in – I will be getting a new puppy in about two months – the first thing I will do is swich it over to Abady N.P.F. –

    The food is hard to find by but I am fortunate that I have a store – only about 18 miles from me – that sells it – I purchase a 2-3 month supply at a time – my dogs have their own freezer –

    • Sami
