TRUSTING IT AND DOG SEEMS TO LOVE IT!
I brought the Natures Goodness Grain Free Dog Roll. I was desperate! I have been spending 100$ a week (increasingly becoming unaffordable) on the only other dog food she will eat. I happened on to this product. With apprehension I brought it. She has had it twice now and loves it. She has eaten it all up! I am happy and the relief was overwhelming. I am certainly buying again. She is a German Shephard & I see from other comments below about dermatitis & skin conditions. Omg I had no idea. I thought she had fleas or mites but as she has been tr...eated for this & I have her on tablets I havnt been able to understand why. It never dawned on me that she might have a skin allergy. I hope this food helps to clear it up. Because the itching & scratching & licking drives us crazy I cant imagine what it is doing to her.
Purchased in December 2020 at Woolworths for $5.20.
Lamb and Rosemary Treats
Would just like to point out that I'm not the only person who's dog has had seizures as a result of the rosemary extract that is put into the Natures Goodness products. I have a standard poodle which had seizure with no direct cause from the vet, they were adamant that it was epilepsy. After further research on rosemary we decided to stop feeding him these treats and touch wood he has not had a seizure after the change.
lamb and rosemary treats
My poodle had seizures quite often while I was feeding him the lamb and rosemary treats.. Once I switched to the bbq beef and tomato he has not had one. Rosemary is a trigger so should not be included in dog food.
If your going to sell it as dog food .. put in large enough print so people know it is
Extremely poor customer service
I contacted this company regarding their ingredients. No reply. After another email, I was advised that it would take 'a few days at most' to have the information. Over 3 weeks later I finally got replied to, although my question was not answered clearly.
What I found astonishing was the attitude towards the customer - when it became apparent to the staff member that the information would be delayed, they did not contact me, but were rather rude to me when I followed it up after 3 weeks.
If you don't care about the quality of the ingredients, then buy this food. If you do feel that the quality is important, then avoid at all costs.
My Dogs Wont Eat
I bought this as thought would be good for them but they all turned their noses at it and they ate a mouthful and would not eat anymore and I have never ever had that with my dogs even if they were not keen on a food but this one they just walked away, so I have not tried it again as is not cheap.
Wish The Ingredients Would Be Much Better
I fed my furbaby this food. The food made her coat very shiny and her stools were firm. But after I did more research of the ingredients and found the food I was feeding my little girl wasn't as great as I thought. Wish VIP Petfoods would change potatoes to sweet potatoes, beet pulp to chickpeas and take out chicken digest and poultry meal completely. With this change it'll be a way better dog food. Sadly, I had to switch food for my furbaby, I would be happy switch back to VIP Natures Goodness if the company changes their ingredients.
My puppy/dog gave this product one big sniff and his response was No No No No No No No No No No - enough said......................
Has anyone tried these?
I bought the Nature's Goodness Real Meat Treats. I wanted to know if anyone has used them and how safe they are for dogs?
Not good for my dog
Initially this product ticked all the boxes as being a healthy alternative. Unfortunately my Jack Russell could not stomach the food after eating it for a few weeks, he then become constipated and would vomit after eating it in the end. I have taken him off it and back to regular food and he recovered quickly. It seems the food is too rich and didn't agree with him. The food also made him smell really bad not sure what is wrong but this should be investigated as no other dog food has caused such issues.
Inexpensive healthy alternative
Dog got sick eating it and made the dog smelly

Why did TRPFC change the Old VIP Natures Goodness Chicken Formula the change is worse not better, there's less meat more carbs, there use to be Sweet Potato in the chicken now you've added Lentils no sweet potato in the Chicken & Veggies kibble some dogs were having diarrhea after the change probably from the lentils, the VIP Natures Goodness Wild Game is better, NO Lentils were added.....
* VIP Natures Goodness Wild Game is a better kibble NO LENTILS uses Chicken meat & Chicken Fat
Meat and meat meals (kangaroo, chicken and/or beef and/or lamb), vegetables and vegetable meals (peas, soy, sweet potato, potato, garlic, tomato), tapioca and potato starches, chicken fat
*Chicken & Vegetables kibble ingredients

RPFC bought Natures Gift dog food chas changed ingredients not for the better but worse.
I bought a chicken with duck and garden veg dog roll and it’s super slimy. Is that normal?
I'm sorry I would have no idea? I have only just brought the dog roll that I have. It's Roast Chicken with Sweet Potato. It certainly wasn't slimy nor did it smell! My dog loved it. Maybe ask Natures Goodness directly.
Hi Courtney, Our chilled rolls should smell fresh and meaty, with no signs of foul odour or package bloating.
