Man’s Best Dog Food Review

Man’s Best Dog Food Review

Man’s Best is an Australian Made & Owned company, manufactured in NSW and currently in stock in a select number of independent pet stores.

For our Man’s Best dog food review we’ll take a look at the Adult Lamb recipe, but there’s also a chicken recipe and a lamb recipe for puppies.

Man’s Best dog food review

There are three dominant ingredients in the food – Lamb MealField Peas, and Tapioca. It’s great to see lamb meal as the main ingredient, although compositionally the amount of peas and tapioca will be almost the same quantity. 33% protein is very respectable (especially with many mainstream brands being around 20% protein). It’s important to note the protein will comprise of both the meat and peas, with meat being the more optimal source.

Tapioca has become common in grain free foods to provide carbohydrates and bind the kibble together. It’s otherwise a relatively pointless but also harmless ingredient, whereas sweet potato would arguably be a nicer choice. Potato and sweet potato feature in the food in smaller amounts.

Man’s Best is a decent offering so worth a try.

There are some very nice inclusions in the food to round it off, with flaxseed and fish oil for omega fatty acids to promote healthy coat, joints, and overall wellbeing.

Alfalfa, kelp, yucca, kale, broccoli, spinach, parsley, apples, blueberries, carrot, tomato, cranberries… that sounds like a very healthy shopping list to me, full of natural vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

My dog is constipated from eating this dog food. She has had it before so it’s not new to her. Her poo went really hard and a funny colour. She refuses to eat it this morning. Which is a worry she is a Lab and normally will guts anything down. This is the first time she has rejected food ever? I will letyou know how it goes.

Mans Best kibble smells really good, my fussy cat & dog loved it, Patch keeps sitting near the pantry where I store his dog food waiting for more Mans Best Lamb kibble…

I met the man who makes Man’s Best kibble at Dogs at the Park yearly event we have at Newcastle, he had samples of Mans Best new Fish formula, so I asked did he have a Lamb sample, Patch does really well on Lamb with his IBD, he said, no I don’t any Lamb samples, then he handed me a 2kg bag of Man’s Best Lamb kibble, I said are you sure, he said Yes take it, that was very nice of him.

He told me Man’s Best kibble was formulated by a vet Nutritionist formulated, he said Man’s Best is made at Tamworth all Australian Lamb…

The kibble bag packet is very good quality, silver lined & very thick, also has clip seal to keep the kibble fresher longer, this kibble is really good quality, I’ve seen a few Australian made kibbles & they don’t look or smell the best.

If you have a fussy dog I highly recommended “Man’s Best” he/she will love it. Try the new Ocean Fish with Sardines formula for Summer & rotate with the Lamb or chicken Formula. If you have a dog with food sensitivities I highly recommend the Lamb formula, Patch is doing really well, no Diarrhea 🙂
