It has a high amount of protein for muscle development, essential fats, and Emu oil for healthy skin, coat, and joints. The company also added glucosamine and chondroitin that can support joint health and bone development. It also has vitamins B3 and B6, which promote good metabolism and encourage liveliness.
This is a good option if you are looking for low-cost dog food with decent nutritional values. It uses rice, which is a cheap source of carbs and can be easily digested.
Black Hawk also added blueberries to this dog food as an antioxidant that can reduce cell damage due to age-related problems found in dogs. It also helps in providing immunity.
Peas are also found in this dog food. It is an inexpensive source of protein. The packaging doesn’t show where the protein comes from, so it is something that you really need to think about as well. Most of the time, if the packaging is not transparent about the protein sources in the dog food, it usually comes from vegetable proteins instead of animal meat. It’s not harmful, but there could be better ways.
Due to the high protein content, we notice that our dogs are growing quickly. Coats are also glossier, and eyes are brighter as well. It is very tasty because of its protein content, so our dogs love it, but we don’t use it as a daily consumption for them. We always try to supplement it with other premium brands since the range of Black Hawk Original product line is very limited. We can consider it as a rotational diet. Since there are limited options of flavours, this brand is not good for dogs who are picky eaters.
It is also essential to keep in mind that in early 2020, Black Hawk has voluntarily recalled some of their products due to some complaints and concerns about mold issues that lead to digestive problems for some dogs. You may want to reconsider buying this dog food to be on the safe side.
Dogs are the best companion for some, and we need to be certain that what we give to them will be for their benefit. We need to do extensive research on every food that we are giving to our dogs. If you have many dogs like us, this product can be the best option for you. It is low cost and has very high protein content and decent additives that support the dog’s health and wellbeing. However, this is not suitable for very sensitive dogs since ingredients are not actually explicitly listed, and there are also some issues recently with other consumers regarding digestive problems.
