Purina Supercoat True Origin Review

One way of showing our love for our dogs is giving the best of what they really need, so we need to be always careful in choosing the right food for them.

Supercoat True Origin (Purina) is the updated formula of the original Supercoat, which is, sadly to say, not-so-great dog food and has received a lot of negative feedback. Looking at this new and improved formula, we can say that Nestle Purina has really tried to improve the formula. It is nutrient-dense and protein-rich that will support muscle and bone development.

This Australian made dog food has tailored a smart blend approach to maximize your dog’s overall health. They claim that this product is all-natural and no added artificial colors or flavors while incorporating vitamins and minerals listed like calcium, magnesium, folic acid, vitamin B12, vitamin A, vitamin D, Vitamin E, and many more.

It has 28% protein and 14% fat content. This formula is good for the maintenance of adult dogs. The protein coming from chicken delivers natural glucosamine for healthy joints, and the duck has iron to support strong muscle growth.

There is wheat in this formula, and sometimes wheat can cause allergies to some dogs. With the same price range, there are better options in the market that will provide a grain-free product. Wheat is normally used in food of your dog because it is eagerly accessible, and it delivers a decent source of protein and an endless source of energy when combined with an animal protein. So, if you have a very sensitive dog to wheat, you cannot take a chance on this formula.

It is not specifically written where the percentage of protein comes from, so it’s up to us to guess if wheat has an equal portion as animal meat.

Another point you may want to consider is that Supercoat True Origin (Purina) uses humectants. It’s not written explicitly in the packaging what kind of humectants they are using, but it is used to keep the dog food juicy, chunky and chewy, but we all know that there are better ways of preserving food using natural sources.

We actually tried Supercoat True Origin (Purina) for one of our dogs, and he’s not happy with it. He has vomited and had diarrhea afterward, but maybe it will work the other way for other dogs. We have decided that we will not use it again, considering the humectants and the ingredients’ uncertainty.

Other dog owners may find this product good for them since their dogs are not particular or sensitive. If you are looking for a low-cost dog food formula, you can try this Supercoat True Origin (Purina), but it’s always in our hands to make sure that we understand and research properly what ingredients can be harmful to our dogs and know how to avoid them. You may save a lot of bucks, but the vet trip will be worse.

What does the fox our Taz say?

I was not happy with this food. It did not suit me and I have to vomit, but taste was good and other dogs can be fine with this food.
