Addiction Grain-Free Kangaroo & Apples Dry Dog Food Review

Addiction Grain-Free Kangaroo & Apples Dry Dog Food Review

Our Recommendation

Addiction Grain-Free Wild Kangaroo & Apples Dry Dog Food is made from low-fat lean kangaroo game meat. Moreover, in addition to meat, the formula comes with sweet, tangy apples that add flavor to your dog’s taste buds.

Kangaroo meat provides high levels of fatty acid called Linoleic which assists in several of a canine’s body functions.

When taking a closer look at the ingredients list, you will find:

  • Wild kangaroo meat is full of proteins containing extreme levels of Linoleic Acid.
  • Kangaroo game meat is free from antibiotics, hormones, and contains 2% fat which keeps your canine lean.
  • In addition to preventing obesity, Conjugated Linoleic Acid has been scientifically linked to a dog’s health and fitness.
  • The apples in the formula are full of flavonoids, polyphenols, and natural antioxidants known to boost your canine’s immune system.
  • The formula contains no artificial colors, preservatives or flavors.

Nutritional Analysis

Pet food ingredients, nutritional values, and the way they are labeled for consumers are monitored by several organizations in the United States including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the NGO, Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO).

Each year the AAFCO publishes two sets of nutritional minimum standards for dog food intended to help specify if a food is suitable for:

1. Dogs in the growth & reproduction phases of life
2. Adult dogs maintaining a healthy weight and activity level

Transition Instructions

Transitioning to Addiction takes six days. Follow the feeding amounts recommended on the bag. However,  Addiction also advises that you start with 20% Addiction and 80% of the current dog food. You should feed your furry one this ratio for two days.

Over the course of four days, gradually increase the ratio of Addiction kibbles while decreasing the old dog food. On the 6th day, feed your dog only Addiction. The slow progression from old to new food will assure your little one does not experience gastrointestinal discomfort or other digestive issues.

Consult with your canine’s veterinarian before you make any changes to your furry one’s diet.

Feeding Amounts

Feeding is broken down by breed size and weight. Follow the daily feeding recommendations listed on the bag.

Weight Daily Feeding (cup)  
< 11 lbs 1/2 – 1  
11 – 22 lbs 1 – 1 3/4  
22 – 55 lbs 1 3/4 – 3 1/3  
> 55 lbs 3 1/3 – 6  

Feeding Instructions

Follow the feeding instructions on the bag. However, keep in mind that nursing dogs and puppies are always hungry and will consume more than the feeding amount recommended. More important, make sure your canine babies have fresh water at all times.
