We started using Black Hawk after we had considerable problems with Gut health in our Miniature Schnauzers, particularly a stud dog we imported from Australia. We were feeding at the time a grain free food considered one of the best in the world. We have had amazing results since changing to Black Hawk, our dogs never have any problems with their gut, their coats shine and they have heaps of energy. When we were having problems, we did a lot of research about the best diet for Miniature Schnauzers and found, because they can get pancreatitis and bladder stone problems, they needed to be fed a diet high in protein and low in fat. We have found if you mix Black Hawk original chicken with one of the grain free varieties, this delivers the right balance for Miniature Schnauzers. I do also put in some Black Hawk Fish and Potato for that extra shine. Our Miniature Schnauzers never suffer from the allergies that seem to plague so many Miniature Schnauzers. Schnauzinn Kennels loves Black Hawk, we feed it and totally recommend it. We raise all our puppies on it and they thrive.
