Annamaet Option

Now we know Benny's stomach issues were not food related. When he gets home in a few days, he will most likely be on Rx food for a week or so. I want to get him on a great food that will be easy on his healing tummy. I learned of Annamaet through this forum, and I did some research. I called the company and they sent me some samples. My little cavalier/bichons (cavachons) were not so thrilled with the Blue Buffalo that I tried, so I gave them some of the Annamaet to try. The gobbled the morsels from my hand and followed me around looking for more. I just ordered a bag online, and I am going to switch them over. Benny will get this food when he can go back on regular dog food.

Here is the link:

I'm interested to hear more about this food. I do know a breeder who swears by it.

Cody and Syd are on Annamaet Option (well, until Syd decided she was only eating the goldens Canine Caviar). Cody is doing super on it. Their grain frees are supposed to be very good too.

The grain free is pricey. Since I have to order it online and pay shipping, I'm going with the Option formula which seems great.

Why order it on-line? Call the distributor in Stamford, Sport-n-Life and see what stores near you they sell to, and then order it.

Option & Encore are $45 for 40lbs at my local dealer. Salcha is $53 for 30lbs. Ultra is $50 for 40lbs.

Option is a great food. I think it is the only sensitivity diet on the market that is ALS.

Annamaet is the best food on the market. Other good ones are Dr. Tim's and Inukshuk, but this one is only available by the pallet. If you can break-up a 65 bag pallet you can buy a world-class food for $25 a bag (33lbs) including shipping, no tax.

Annamaet has a formula for every dog and doesn't rip you off with ingredients that do nothing or overproteinated foods.

Great stuff. I use Ultra & Extra.

Thanks for the info. I'll definitely call them.

I'm always a little hesitant of food that has a "meal" as the first ingredient instead of actual meat/fish.

Flynn at 4 months is on Encore, coat is good and he loves the food. The distributor pricing is right on. I also have the new Annamaet Grain Free Lean for an overweight Cardigan and post pancreatitis Pembroke. both love the food and doing very well. About the same for a 30# bag but worth it. Used it for 7 years with our last Golden.

WCF, what protein level would you consider "overproteinated" for a very active 5 year old GR? In another thread I referenced a study which showed that dogs on low protein diets had more joint injuries than dogs on higher protein diets. Dogs on very high (say greater than 34%, but I forget the exact number) had zero joint injuries. These were dogs undergoing rigorous training similar to gun dog training. Also, as I understand it, if a dog gets more protein than it needs, it simply gets broken down and excreted. Other than paying money for extra protein your dog doesn't use, what is the downside to too much protein? Thanks.
