Ebon did quite well on this kibble. One slightly odd thing that happened to his stool while on this food was that is was rather soft in consistency, but the quantity was greatly reduced. Usually, if it's soft, it's also copious. For example, he usually has two movements a day, but on this food there were days when he showed no indication that he wanted to go more than once. He did get stressed one day while on this food, when we were accidentally locked out of the condo for a couple of hours, and he did have the expected copious, loose poop that he almost always has when stressed. It wasn't any looser than normal, despite the starting consistency being different.
Ebon's coat has been quite shiny and soft while on this food, with his normal amount of dandruff. Though this food contains fish meal, there was no hint of the horrible fishy smell he developed while eating Wellness.
Overall, I was rather happy with how Ebon did on this kibble. My only wish was that his stool was a bit more firm, though the quantity was more than acceptable. Though he did quite well, I'm honestly probably not going to feed it to him on a regular basis since it would be even more expensive to feed on a yearly basis than Nature's Variety Instinct, which he did even better on. So far, it would be the most expensive food to feed.
Will I change foods? We'll see. Next up: Blue Buffalo Wilderness and my decision about whether or not to do more reviews.
