Chewy = Yummy

It's been four years since we got hit with that horrible crypto infection that left us struggling. All my girls have gotten past it with no lingering effects, but all three boys were left with intestinal issues. All three are on special diets, but of course, three different special diets. Fudge eats duck. He has duck kibble and gets a topping of canned duck food. Unfortunately, he gets bored, so I tried ordering a different duck canned food to alternate and now he's happy again. The new food we tried was Whole Earth Farms Hearty Duck Stew. Fudge was the only one who ate it.
But that was about to change. This month Whole Earth Duck Stew was one of Chewy's review choices. I thought it would be fun to see what the rest of the group thought about it.

Sebastian and Mackey eat together. They don't go to the garage to eat like the rest of the pack. Instead, Rob feeds them in the kitchen or on the porch. We do this because Mackey doesn't like to let Rob out of her sight and Sebastian is on a special diet.

We thought that Sebastian had pancreatitis, but testing showed that he didn't have it. He did, however, have a vomiting problem. We don't know exactly what's wrong, but with medication and diet, we've controlled the vomiting and now he's able to eat more foods. For a month he ate only rice and sweet potato. Once the vomiting stopped, we started adding in some shredded pork. We buy a big pork loin, cut it up and slow cook a portion for him. When it's well cooked, we shred it and mix it with his rice. We did that for another month and now we've added a small amount of duck kibble it. He hasn't vomited since the beginning of July.
Yesterday we decided to see what Mackey and Sebastian thought about Duck Stew. I fixed their dinner of kibble, rice and pork, then I opened the stew.
 It has peas and carrots and big chunks of duck.
Let's take this onto the porch and see what they think.
 Looks like they're both interested.
Ready, set, eat!
No complaints so far.
They're licking the bowls.
Looks like they liked it.
Whole Earth Farms makes stew in other flavors such as beef, lamb, turkey and chicken. They're made in the USA and they state on the site that there are no ingredients from China.

Chewy sent us a case of Whole Earth Farms Grain Free Hearty Duck Stew at no cost to us in exchange for our honest review.

Well, if Sebastian and Mackey liked it, that's a fine recommendation. And cute pictures. Glad to hear that Sebastian's digestive issues seem to be under control.

It must be very yummy because Sebastian and Mackey sure did a great job cleaning their food bowls!
