Optimum Puppy wet dog food
I bought a can of the chicken rice & vegetables to see if my GSP puppy would like it.
She sniffs it, looks at me and walks away. I don't want her to be too fussy and refuse to give her anything else... but even starving, she won't eat it.
Even the birds (and other wildlife at night) that are constantly trying to steal her food left it alone - the only living things to go near it were insect. I literally couldn't give it away.
Can't say I blame her - it looks and smells revolting. A weird overly-wet brown sludge with soft mushy indiscriminate ...

Our 9 mo pup has just started the past few days having small amounts of the optimum puppy dry food,he seems to enjoy it. No change to stool (always good) happy,healthy and good weight. All the people saying made dogs sick possibly the dog was just sick? I don't believe the food was the culprit ps you weab them onto new food not just chuck a heap in the bowl from day 1.

The dry food stinks of crap and/or vomit ... repulsive .. . my 6 month-old refused to eat it ... SO AVOID ... don't understand how a dog-food producer can have the gall to present such fare to the dog community

check your cans don't pay for air
680g can of optimum with chicken and rice light and healthy well the light was right opened the can of air the can was only 1/3 full so optimum may be a good idea to check your quality control if we but a 680g can we expect it the right weight the dog food seem good the dog ate it but there was not much in the can so everybody check your can

can't recycle packaging
I was disappointed to see that the package for dry dog food products are not recyclable.
If they can be recycled through red cycle, this is not stated on the packet.
My policy is not to buy products which produce waste and I hope that the business will work to change its packaging very soon for the sake of the environment.

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.
