Our Analysis

We give Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul a high rating of four stars for its high- protein, nutritious dog food. When you look at the ingredient list on either the dry or wet food formulas, usually the first four ingredients are always meats such as chicken, turkey, salmon or duck and meat meals. Meat meals are concentrated meats with the liquids extracted, so they are very high in protein, something that dogs need for a long and healthy life. Other ingredients include gluten-free whole grains like oatmeal, barley and brown rice, as well as nutritious vegetables and fruits. Both the dry and wet food formulas also have chicory root in the mix, which contains a natural prebiotic that aids in maintaining a healthy digestive tract. The only ingredient we found that was not necessarily high in nutrition for dogs was white rice. However, white rice is not harmful for dogs, nor does it appear in large quantities in the formulas.

The Word on the Street...

Dog owners have very positive things to say about Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul dog food. Dogs love the taste of this food, and even picky eaters lap up the dry and wet food formulas. Many pet owners have commented that their dogs have shinier coats and eyes, more energy and less digestive problems after switching to this brand. In addition, dogs with allergies seem less prone to allergic reactions such as itching, flaky skin and gas on a diet of this dog food. Some pet owners were concerned about a previous recall for the dry food, but were relieved to hear that just one bag of food out of 12,000 tested positive for salmonella, and that the problem has not recurred since then. Moreover, customers appreciated that the company made a concerted effort to recall the entire dry formula line, based on just one bad bag of food. Overall, Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul dog food is well received by both dogs and dog owners alike.

    It’s a shame to think that the lower price would deter someone by making them think it’s of lesser quality. When I compared the ingredient list to other quality brands I was confused. I thought ‘what am I missing here’. Apparently nothing. This stuff is great. I’ve been feeding this to my pugs (6&3) and they are doing great. (I usually mix chix soup & royal canin pug,lab)But often they get just the chixsoupforthedoglover’ssoul light, and they are very healthy, lean, energetic,(albeit naughty) pugs.

    I have been feeding chicken soup Large breed for about two years now. My cane corso’s do wonderfully on it. Their coat is shiny, they are active and not overweight…and THEY like it. I cannot afford the best of the best dogfood…but I can do better than the grocery bought foods such as Iams, pedigree, purina, etc. This brand has better ingredients than all that I have just listed, as well as some of the more premium brands and for the price I believe it is the best value at about $38/35lbs.

  • Robin

    I’ve fed my two labs this product on and off (as funds allow). We avoid foods with grains due to hot spot issues, and this product is fairly reasonably priced and does the job. Since I routinely add plain yogurt to the dogs’ morning meals, protein levels are not a major concern; supplementing with a bit of diced chicken or canned salmon is an inexpensive alternative to purchasing a more expensive dry food and keeps the dogs interested in their meals.
