Terrible! Our poor fur baby :-(
Our Mini Foxie loves the food HOWEVER she has gotten so sick from it and has the runs and generally unwell :-( DO NOT BUY THIS FOOD! I feel so bad for feeding this POISON to our fur baby!
Diarrhea and itch after consumption
My pup has been taking this product since he was put on solid food. He was fine until recently, he has diarrhea and itch every time he ate this. He does not have any other diet except this. Not sure what had changed in the content as this is the only food which I am giving him. Unfortunately I will have to stop this until it creates further damages.

My puppy loves the food
My 9-month puppy loves the food. Due to her size, I've bought the "giant breed" option after having trialed the regular version. Mine prefers this one to the other options on the market due to its large kibble size. When she eats, I can hear the crunchiness. I have started building a collection of food for mine to rotate on a regular basis. This one is an inexpensive option that I will definitely keep coming back to. Highly recommended!

My puppy prefers these to Black Hawk puppy biscuits
My 6 month golden retriever puppy loves these bikkies.
We used to buy her the Black Hawk puppy bikkies which she ate but she would never eat them as soon as I put her food out. She would leave it for 20 mins until she was really hungry to eat. They are the smallest puppy bikkies I have found on the market.
She doesn't vomit or have diarrhea when on them.
Poison - Optimum should shut down!!!
Please do not give your puppy this rubbish food,
My poor poodle, she was so sick and vomiting.
She was not putting on weight. The vet was so concerned for her. She was always hungry, she would go and hunt for spider to eat because this food has no nutrition. The vet and pet store had confirmed that this food is the worst you can give your puppy, no protein or fats to help them grown.
As soon as I stopped giving her this rubbish she stopped vomiting. She had cooked turkey and rice with royal canin for poodles. In one week she put 100 grams of weight. Finally she is putting on weight. This product should be removed from the shelves.. I have made a formal complaint about optimum. Please do not give your dog this food!!!!
Would definitely not recommend!
Recently changed my pup to this food and he got extremely unwell and had an infection, we assumed he may have eaten something he shouldn’t have. Had him on a plain diet of rice and chicken for a week and he got a lot better, started him on this food again 2 days ago and since starting this food again he’s got the runs and is also vomiting everything up. Never had a problem like this with anything else only this food. Definitely not worth it to make your dog sick.
ok, there is worse but there is a lot better puppy food on the market
Purchased this when we first got our mini foxie puppy and he would not eat the dry food all the time and is very fussy. The pedigree puppy food gave him the runs. This Optimum was ok - poohs not as runny, and he ate it sometimes, so better than pedigree. However, now we use Black Hawk moist dog food, and Nutro Natural Choice puppy food with Black Hawk dry food and he is much healthier, firmish poohs with little odour, shiny soft coat and a healthier dog all round who isn't as fussy with his food.
try intoducing it slowely
Have not tried this puppy food yet but to the people saying it made their dogs sick:
My vet mentioned when changing a puppy's food you must introduce it slowly, especially being a puppy because changing their food straight away can cause upset stomachs, diarrhoea, vomiting...
These biscuits are garbage highly NOT RECOMMENDED
I was using supercoat large puppy breed and didn't have a problem with the biscuits. When i went to purchase the biscuits again the lady at the counter highly recommend Optimum (BIGGEST MISTAKE) My rottweiler has the runs and I've got him on a biscuit only diet. At $65+ a bag.
Puppy was sick after eating biscuits
Our 6 month old puppy has been on the puppy biscuits since we got her, recently we purchased another bag and after every meal (only biscuits) she has thrown up everything almost straight away. We have fed her only rice for a day to find out what was causing this and no vomit, tried a small handful of the optimum biscuits 2 days later and as suspected she threw it alllaterNot impressed!!
