The dogs seem to like it.
My dogs always eat it when I buy it for them. One roll seems to last about 4 days with 2 small dogs.
My biggest concern is the little bits of bone all the way through the product. They are hard and sharp... surely thats not normal... the manufacturer needs to stop throwing whole bodies into the mincer I think!!
Next time I am at Petbarn, I am going to seek out a better roll to buy that doesnt have the bone through it. I just think its asking for trouble to feed your dog that sort of thing.
It is good food.
I have used this product for 2 years. My dog is a labrador crossed with golden retriever and he is a BIG dog for his breed. His current weight is 38 kilos and has been stable for a long time. He is 6 years old. My vet stated very recently that his weight is excellent for his size. My vet also stated his coat and skin is in excellent condition . I feed my dog once a day. I give him approx 500 grams per day. The 2kg roll lasts 4 days. I occasionally throw in a brisket bone/ meat bone as part of his diet. The thing is the nutritional value is refl...ected in his general well being, and his health. Good food will always have a long term beneficial result. It is good food. I must add that I mix it with other prime rolls like lamb and rosemary, kangaroo and pumpkin and occassionally the salmon roll. All of which he hoes into... thats my boy :)
Steer clear of prime 100 SPD ROLLS! they claim single protein for food sensitivities/allergies which it is not!
Re SPD rolls - my dog has been on this for a little while all of a sudden he is flaring up with pancreatitis! No Peter he is not becoming sensitised to the protein! (roo and pumpkin and the roo and potato) 2 of the worst flare ups ever! so ill he cannot walk! on the pack is clearly written a single novel protein- yet on the pack is written very small "packed on equipment that may contain other proteins!" smaller than any of the other writing! Which I just discovered this morning!! There is bone all thru it yet not once is it written on the ro...ll or website! Dogs with pancreatitis & ibd cannot have bone the pancreas has to work harder to break it down sending pancreas into overdrive ! An inflamed bowel from ibd cannot tolerate it! Even a vet will tell you this! Y is it not written on the roll or any of your rolls?!!! you cannot trick a pancreas or bowel- it knows it has to try and break it down and can and will inflame the pancreas and bowel! you say the bones are emulsified and the soft part of the roo - ribs and spine ! but the pancreas still recognises it to digest it! they are sharp which does not reflect emulsification! Y do you think a dog with IBD or Pancreatitis needs bone at all??? and with food sensitivities you pack it on equipment that has been in contact with other proteins yet this is specifically for dogs with severe food sensitivities! you would not risk this with human food for food allergies yet risk it with very ill dogs! its even written on the sticker with the used by date! they say they list all ingredients yet nowhere is there written bone anywhere! This is deceitful and completely makes the single novel protein claim untrue! plus being packed on equipment thats been in contact with other proteins is way too much of a risk for dogs with food allergies , IBD and sensitivities so their claims are FALSE and LIES and misleading! Yes the food has changed with new distributor as a lady mentioned below, and to not be completely transparent on the roll and list of ingredients is deceptive! also they have moved the crocodile and tapioca roll to only selling to the vets now so we are charged more to get it! (how much kick back do vets get Prime? ) but not many vets are distributing it! Green Cross vets are not selling it! this is primes idea of the elimination diet which is incorrect everyone! an elimination diet is one single protein and one single carb! but according to prime 100 they write this on their website! You only have to look at the ingredients in the croc roll and know its not a single protein (packed on equipment which other proteins have been on and again the bone added !) It defies belief that prime call this the elimination diet when it goes against everything the elimination diet stands for ! if a dog owner puts their dog on this there is no way of knowing which ingredient is flaring your dog up! as all the additives and the bone and the packing process! according to prime as written on their website!......... What is an elimination diet? An elimination diet is where a veterinary professional places a dog, or cat, on a novel single protein diet such as Sk-D200 Crocodile & Tapioca for a period of 8-10 weeks (or as directed), if the dogs indications have improved, the veterinarian will usually challenge the dog or cat with another process to see if they react to the protein to identify an allergy. After this time, the dog should only have proteins that they do not react to. ...... No vet nutritionist or Internal medicine specialist will recommend this as the elimination diet because of all the additives! a true elimination diet is one protein cooked at home and one low fat carb added then other things gradually added by themselves over time with a diary kept! So my dog is now going back to the strict one elimination diet the one i cook as i know what is in it! i should be sending prime 100 my vet bills the untruths they claim on the website and the rolls! He has also put on unnecessary weight on a supposed low fat diet! and am not over feeding him! so that speaks for itself! Pls see my photos of the untruths they write on their SPD rolls !

Prime100 changed distribution company
I've have posted a previous comment re Prime100 Kangaroo and Sweet potato. Had my 12 yr old Jackie on it for 7yrs, has colitis and skin issues,now has heart murmer. Has lost some condition but still wildly in love with Prime, links the bowl for hours! My biggest bugbear is company changed hands and ordering is hit and miss. Local regional IGA has constantly being mucked around with stock and delivery. Also last 5 batches have been super, with bits and pieces I have to pick out. Rang the company only to be told " thats how it is!!". Would apprec...iate better help with customer service from Prime. My girl seems constantly hungry, not sure if it's because of change of recipe. I'll persevere, as she hasn't had dreadful painful stomach aches, saving vet dollars. Anyone else had problems with dry product??
kangaroo and sweet potato
You are able to buy the prime kangaroo and sweet potato from City farmers in Bunbury so I would think you could get it from any city farmers store. I am triballing my dog with this as he suffers from allergies. my other dog has just been diagnosed with chronic renal failure and I had been looking for a better quality dog food, he loved this
Hypoallergenic dog, this is his only option
My dog is allergic to all proteins so after a few near death experiences (inflamed organs) our vet worked with us on finding the best single protein diet for him to survive on. This was the answer.
We go through a roll and a bit a day (he is a giant breed) and up until recently we've had no problems with it, in fact it's been an amazing product. The past six months however we have been noticing that more and more bone and fat clumps are showing up in our rolls and it might not be a problem so much with smaller dogs but with our dog the bone ...shards keep embedding themselves deep into his gums costing us too much money to always go to the vets to have the shards removed. So now I pick the bones out, time consuming but there is no other option. I really wish they would return to whatever method/recipe they were using last year because the rolls smelled better, they looked healthier (better pink colour), there was no sinew nor fat deposits and more importantly there was way less bone shards.
Just bought it today
I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. They're very fussy. I was starting to feel bad about giving them supermarket rubbish. Went to City Farmers and spoke with a very helpful staff member - she recommended this due to the grain free, lack of fillers and the leaner meat.
I gave it to them tonight. They were LITERALLY licking the bowl for hours afterwards. They LOVED it!
Hi my dog has been suffering with skin allergies for the last 3 years. .if i knew earlier about this product i would have used it earlier. My dog has been on prime beef kangaroo and potato for 3 days now and her skin colour has already gone back to normal color. .a lesson learned for my experience is better to spend more money and feed your pet well than spend alot of money on vets and tablets that in the end do more harm than good for your pet..I wish my vet recommended this product earlier. .
OMG at last help for me and my dog
My GSD was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease . We have had over I year of food trials and $$$$$$ in vet fees and Hills gastrointestinal health i/d z/d and Royal Canin.. all no good for him. I now have my boy on SK-D200 and he is doing great , no more loose or cow pat stools and he did not have to be on cortisone either . His stools are normal he is healthy even his coat is better. Thank you Prime this food has been a blessing.
May 2nd 2018 Update: almost three years since last review
My IBD GSD is still on SKD200 he had gained weight and was doing fine , but now for some reason he has started to lose weight He has been through all tests for cancer etc so its not that . He is having more food but no weight gain ?
My female boxer has skin allergies and after countless $$$$$$ spent at vets , medications, shampoos and lotions we have found sk-d200 :) after just 2 weeks she hasn't itched once and she looks great . At the young age of 8 she has so much new energy. Best of all she really loves the taste .
As she is a fussy eater I was worries she may not like it ... i was wrong!
My 3 shepherds love it! I recommend this product. The dogs look great and they don't itch anymore! Our Vet told me about this product as 2 out of my 3 dogs had really bad skin issues. After about 7 days, I could see a big change! I love you Prime :) I highly recommend!
Fresh, preservative free, coat looks fantastic!! Vet speaks highly of the product.
Prime Kangaroo & Potato SK-D200
My dog suffers from dermatitis and has done so for around 5 years. We have been feeding a kangaroo and Potato based diet (making it myself). My Vet recommended this roll and I bought from Petstock South Melbourne. It is great and my dogs coat feels great and they love it! I highly recommend this food and has been a huge help as I no longer have to make my own.
Ease of just putting it in the bowl and serving. Has multiple "fixes"for dogs like pancreatitis etc. Gluten free
I wish it came in 1kg rolls :/ Not just in 2kg (I sent an email to make a smaller size)
Questions & Answers
Hi. My ten year old Manchester Terrier is being fed the kangaroo and pumpkin roll which he loves. He weighs 12kg. His ideal weight is 13kg. In the first week he lost 1kg , down to 11kg. I've increased his quantity to 550gm per day spread over two meals. This is double the recommended quantity and it's still a struggle to keep weight on. Any feed back welcomed
I’m having the same problem as you. I feed my dog recommended amount and she is pacing the floor for more afterwards. She is not a food obsessed dog and never has been because of her allergy/ digestive problems. She is fed 2x a day 12 hours apart but we’re having to feed her at 8 pm at night to keep her from waking at 3 am to pace the floor for food. Her demeanour changes completely on Sk-D. Which was also recommended by the vet. We’ve tried kangaroo and pumpkin, salmon and now wild boar. She is anxious and panting and always appears hungry. She is also supposed to be on an elimination diet, as one commenter above, but this one has not been any use for our dog. We are back to royal canin anallergenic biscuits, till she settles again.
