Review: Wild Calling Rocky Mountain Medley for Dogs

January 5, 2016

Wild Calling is a family-owned business launched in 2013. Jeremy Peterson, executive vice president, was quoted in a magazine article explaining the concept of their Rocky Mountain Medley products:  “…we developed a concept of land, air and sea because red meats are deficient in arginine and histidine, two of the 10 essential amino acids that a pet requires to thrive. By adding the air and sea proteins, we get all 10 essential amino acids in the pet’s diet.”

Mr. Peterson adds that their foods are all grain-free and they use a combination of sweet potatoes, lentils and tapioca to help regulate the dog’s glucose and insulin levels.

The company’s Western Plain Stampede diets are designed for pets with food allergies or food sensitivities.  Their new Zoic line, which should have launched by now, will sell for a “nice price point.”  I will definitely look at that. Wild Calling also makes a line of cat food for our feline friends which will be reviewed at a later date.

Ingredients

Rocky Mountain Medley Duck, Salmon Meal & Lamb Meal Recipe

Duck, Salmon Meal, Lamb Meal, Sweet Potato, Lentils, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Tapioca, Dried Egg Product, Dried Peas, Natural Flavor, Flaxseed Meal, Yeast Culture, Potassium Chloride, Dried Seaweed Meal, Dried Cranberries, Dried Blueberries, Whole Mussel, Dried Carrots, Dried Spinach, Dried Apples, Dried Pumpkin, Dried Broccoli, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), Calcium Carbonate, Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Proteinate, Salt, Manganese Proteinate, Ferrous Sulfate, Niacin, Copper Proteinate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Dried Bacillus subtilis Fermentation Product, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Calcium Iodate, Folic Acid.

I don’t see anything wrong with this dog food and would happily feed it to my own pet.  The proteins included at the beginning of the ingredients list are just fine.  The vegetables are good. The fat choice of chicken fat is also a healthy option.  There is really nothing to complain about.

I have no idea of the retail price of this product but I assume it would be a premium food.  But it would certainly be worth the extra money if you can afford it.  I would definitely buy this dog food.  Check out the company’s website and see if you agree.
