Nutritional Value Of Black Hawk Adult

9 posts in this topic

meluchja   

I was telling my vet today about the kibble I have changed my boy over to. As he has had some bad itch issues in the past, he wanted to know what the nuritional value of the BH adult formula is, to help monitor any the changes in him while he is on it. To me, I can already see some great changes in his coat condition.

Can anyone who supplies the food or make it, tell me other than protein, carb, fat etc what the nutritional value is? We are especially interested to know the % of Omgea 3 and omega 6 levels, Vitamin E and Zinc.

Thanks.

I would suggest contacting your supplier directly rather than on here if you need specific information.

That's perfect thank you. Looking at these levels, I think it's funny that my boy did so poorly on a very expensive kibble that was meant to improve his skin. It had 5% Omega 6 levels and 2% Omega 3 levels, his coat was in such poor condition. It was the same when I had tried him on a Raw diet, I think it made his coat worse.

Now he is on BH which appears to have lower levels, his coat has improved by 110% go figure. I guess in some cases less in more, or it's all about the right balance.

What ever the balance is it works perfectly for my boy, thank you from me and him.

Curious, was there a reason or just experience for this perticular balance/ratios of Omegas, proteins etc? If that makes sense, sorry kids had me up way to early this morning.

I have just done the exact same thing as you Meluchja & changed my boy over from RC for coat e.t.c. to BH a week ago today with unbeliveable results already. His coat especially has improved 110%. I was a die hard RC fan for years but seeing these results so quickly, I am amazed to be honest. He is sparkling almost. And he loves the taste as well, ( he is very fussy as a rule) I'm wrapped. :love:

Great to see you've had great results as well. I agree totally, I also noticed great improvements in a week as week. I'm so glad I have found a food that he seems to be doing so well on. Its been a heart breaking process watching him scratch away with a terrible dry coat, refusing to eat, no matter what we tried. It's awesome to see that he loves the taste, and I'm just glad he is on his way to recovery. Thumps up all around here.

Omegas obviously come from different substances. Not all Omegas are equal :D After fish oil flaxseed is a brilliant source of omega oil. So have a look at what the oil source was in the previous foods you were feeding.

Another BH feeder here and my dogs are going very well on it.

I have a long haired and short haired breed, they both feel wonderful :laugh: My Pointer also doesn't shed much hair either. Never known a Pointer to not shed white hair all over your clothes and house but Badg doesn't.
