Food Friday: Canine Caviar 95% Venison Grain-Free Canned Dog Food

This 95% Venison Grain-Free canned dog food went well with our Canine Caviar Wilderness kibble. This is pretty much just a can of meat, with some venison tripe and venison liver along with a bit of guar gum. It's not a complete diet, but the company says adding in two of their food supplements will make a complete diet.

This is an interesting addition to our rotational diet. (Though at this point we're not so much rotating as meandering...) I never really feed just canned food, so the fact that it's not a complete diet isn't an issue. I've been using it as a food topper, to try to convince Ru to eat some Wysong Epigen Venison. I appreciate that it's not a super-stinky canned food. It merits five out of five stars on the Dog Food Advisor website.

Weird Meats

Canine Caviar's canned dog food comes in a very interesting variety of meats. In addition to normal meats like duck, turkey, buffalo, and venison, they also offer beaver. Canned beaver. I am not making this up. I'm pretty sure this is the only beaver-based dog food I've ever encountered. I appreciate that there's nothing in there but beaver and guar gum, as this would be an excellent place to start an elimination diet for a dog with really crazy allergies. Fortunately, Brisbane is only allergic to chicken, turkey, duck, and eggs.

Taste Test

Brisbane loved the Canine Caviar V95% Venison, as Brisbane adores all things food even when they make him itch. Ru liked it enough to eat it even when it was covering kibble he doesn't like. Sisci loved it, but it seemed to upset her tummy a bit. It may be just a little too rich.

Bottom Line

I need to go back to that store and see if they have the beaver food.
