Solid Gold Holistic Pet Food



We've gone SOLID GOLD for a MONTH!!! As I mentioned before, Molly and I have been asked to take the SOLID GOLD challenge and eat SOLID GOLD HOLISTIC pet food for a whole month and then tell Chewy.com how we felt about the food. Oh! And how we liked the food. How the food LIKED us. You get the picture. Well, we were totally onboard with the challenge so Ms. Sydney sent us a bag to try.

BUT FIRST, we had to do our homework about SOLID GOLD so we would know WHAT we were getting ourselves into.

Solid Gold Pet Foods is a California-based pet food company which specialized in holistic food for pets.

ho·lis·tic
hōˈlistik/
adjective
PHILOSOPHY
  1. characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.
    • MEDICINE
      characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of a disease.


The company mission is to create nutrition which will change pets lives Body Mind and Spirit. That's a pretty tall order from a pet food company. The nutrition goal is lots of things a pet needs and none of the stuff it doesn't - so their foods and treats are rich in protein and vitamins and minerals while being void of by-products, grains, and fillers.

Sounds good to me. I like real food. It makes me feel better and more satisfied after I eat. I am lying a little. I am never satisfied. I am never full. I am P.U.G.

But anyhow, here is a timeline which shows the evolution of where the company is today -

THIS ALL SOUNDS GOOD TO ME and I feel good about eating the Buck Wild with Venison,

SATISFYING food for me.
