Bil-Jac Buzz Review - My Dog is a Foodaholic!

My dog loves food!  In fact, that may be a total understatement.  She is obsessed completely, totally and utterly with food.  So, you can imagine that I felt compelled to accept the offer to review Bil-Jac dog food.  How could I not?  If she found out, she’d never let me live it down.

My first impression is that it is expensive.  As a BzzAgent, I received a coupon for a free six pound bag.  Without the coupon, I would have spent about $17.00 for that bag.  To me, that is expensive.  It’s not that I’m unwilling to spend money on our pooch, I just don’t typically spend that much money.  I was also provided with $10 off coupons to share.  I gave those out at our local homeschool co-op to others excited to try the brand.
When I opened the bag, it wasn’t what I expected.  It looked more like rabbit food than dog food.  Of course, I had gone with the weight reduction formula – my Boston is carrying around just a um…  few…  extra pounds.  I presented it to her that night just like we do her regular food.  She had no reservations about diving right in.  I’m not surprised – I’ve not seen her reject any food including bananas , watermelon, apples, etc.  She’ll eat just about anything.  So what makes Bil-Jac a better choice? 

1.       The primary protein source is real chicken and chicken organs with no corn gluten, wheat gluten, or rice protein.
2.       Slow cooking the corn meal for over 40 minutes makes the carbohydrates more digestible producing a lower glycemic index than rice.
3.       Gentle moisture removal by vacuum drying avoids heat damage to the essential amino acids including Omega-3 and Omega-6.
Bil-Jac comes in several varieties: 
·         Sensitive Solutions
·         Select Adult
·         Reduced Fat
·         Large Breed
·         Small Breed
·         Puppy
·         Senior
·         Large Breed Puppy
·         Small Breed Puppy
·         And a variety of treats

We decided the two bowl challenge was in order.  Presenting Daisy with both options and seeing which she would go for first.  Here are the results:

We’re going to keep feeding her this round and see how her weight responds.  We haven’t had a lot of luck with other dog foods (of course, the snacks the hubby feeds her don’t help much either).  If there is a noticeable improvement, I’ll buy another bag.

*** I received a coupon for a bag of Bil-Jac free as a BzzAgent in exchange for my honest review.
