Price: tailored food = tailored price per month, based on a monthly delivery
Our rating: a massive 5 out of 5!!!
After so much talking about food categories that could affect the well-being of our dogs, particularly if Border Terriers affected by Spike’s Disease, finally I have managed to find a brand of food for dogs, which in fact tailors the food to the health needs our dogs: that’s Tails of course!!!
So, let me tell you today why I think Tails is the very best food for dogs with any digestive condition, as well as for dogs who are simply sensitive or fussy and like a variety to their daily menus.
What’s the idea behind Tails
The idea that prompted to the launch of Tails in 2014 was inspired by a group of dog owners who had been feeding their dog bog standard food that we all can find on supermarket shelves or in pet shops. Yes, admittedly food for dogs is much more details in its ingredients and suitability, but no food until the launch of Tails was food specifically tailored to your dog’s needs.
And that’s what these guys did – they did a year of extensive research and trialing before launching this successful brand. And since then, they have been specialising in creating food that will fit individual needs with the valid input of a group of expertise not only in dog food, but in healthy food too. These include nutritionists and vets alike, all working to meet the common goal of ensuring that when customers contact Tails.com with specific requirements, those needs are met and fulfilled, so as to ensure our canine friends are … well, so as to ensure they are well therefore happy!
Advantages from using Tails food for your dog
In searching about cause and effects of Spike’s Disease, which particularly Border Terriers seem to be so vulnerable to, I have come to the conclusion that food seems to be the one factor that can help in managing the dreaded fits and cramping in our hounds.
Different theories have been developed in the last decades as to whether to eliminate grains from our dog’s diets, or foods rich in high proteins, such as eggs and red meat.
Luckily, as far as my Indy is concerned, I have never needed to follow specific diets as Spike’s Disease is one condition that Indy has so far never suffered from. But at times even Indy has suffered to ‘delicate’ tummy. In the past we were advised by the vet to introduce boiled chicken and rice, which worked on Indy for a period of time. But eventually we had to revert back to supermarket dog food. He has been happy with this dietary regime for the last few years, but recently he has started having sensitive tummy again. And that’s what prompted me to look on dog food packages and their content.
Fact: Tails food is freshly made to requirement.
Now, you tell me, isn’t it difficult to find food that may not have rice but will have eggs? or may not have eggs, but will have beef? or may have chicken, but also rice?!?!?! Searching for the ideal food is sometimes an impossible mission.
I believe Tails.com is the ideal food for Border Terriers, and any other breed of dogs, suffering from Spike’s Disease.
Whether, like in dogs affected by Spike’s, you have a specific list of ingredients that must be avoided, and only a few ingredients that you can allow your dog, or whether your dog is simply fussy and likes variety in his / her dietary habits; whether your dog has dental problems even, or suffers from pancreatitis, or is growing older and needs food richer in calcium and antioxidants for improved bone density and anti-aging effects; no matter what the needs are, Tails.com can and will meet your requirements.
But … how do they do it?
How Tails works
The big question is: how does a company make such scheme viable after all? How does it all work?
In fact, Tails makes it all very easy and customer friendly for us dog owners. And that’s how.
As you enter Tails website, you are invited to log in through your social media accounts or by giving your email. You then introduce your dog(s), and literally, all it takes is 5 minutes and no more than that for Tails.com to come up with the ideal combination of ingredients and blends of dry and wet food from over a million recipes available to their database.
Because yes, that’s where the strength of Tails lies: in the fact that they put together such a massive collection of recipes utilising any type of dog friendly ingredients ahead of launching the business, that they can now sustain the demand.
Naturally, that research is still ongoing amongst Tails gurus. But this is possible whilst their sales are reaching sky high proportions!
Fact: did you know that Trustpilot consistently rates Tails with top five stars based on customer feedback!
And as well as tailored ingredients, Tails will advise on ideal daily portions for your dog, and provide you with a perfect-portion scoop which will aid us dog owners in feeding that ideal weight to our dogs.
And finally, if you stay with Tails for a prolonged period of time, as your dog gets older, Tails will propose new recipes for your dog to better suit his / her needs as an older dog.
Yes, it’s only but natural that you may think Tails will be incredibly expensive for the privilege of providing tailored food. That’s could not be further from the truth.
This is what Tails charge me for a monthly supply for my Indy:
You will also notice that DELIVERY IS FREE in UK in all mainland postcodes. Unfortunately for the time being, Tails do not deliver outside UK, but you can ask to keep you posted, should they in future extend their services to other countries including yours.
Hurry before you miss your exclusive offer!
I see Tails having an endless number of advantages to their scheme of delivering tailor made food for your dog. But in the back of your mind you might still worry in case your dog may not like the new food blend and combination.
Like in my case, you may ask: what happens if you spend nearly £10 a month for food that Indy may end up not liking or may react adversely to? Tails have come up with the best deal ever!!
This is an ideal solution to enable you and your dog to test the new recipes offered by Tails specifically for your dog. Check out on this video if Indy likes his new and uniquely mixed kibble from Tails:
Not only that, but should you dog initial like the new food, but get bored of it a few months later, all you have to do is contact Tails explaining your problem, and they will review the ingredients and the blend combination to make your dog’s diet more varied.
If you ask me, what Tails offers is short of unbeatable !
By now you will have realised that I am totally in favour of Tails. It is a scheme that I had never come across before (and that probably explains their uniqueness and their success), and one that I wish it had been created much sooner.
My Indy has gone through a lot of troubles with his teeth first, then with sensitive digestive system, and more recently with his anal cancer, which in turn implied light food for his post-op recovery as well as food that could convert easily and pain free in not too hard stools.
What we found with Indy is that every time we had problems related to his food, such as with his teeth or with his tummy upset, the vet did give advice, but this was a generic advice for dogs, and not necessarily catered to Indy’s own needs.
Tails is the answer to the problem we have encountered so far. And I feel Tails is the answer to problems you may have with your dogs, as they respond to the unique information you give about your dog, starting from breed, to weight, age, medical circumstances, etc.
And of course, for all the many reasons mentioned above, I strongly believe Tails.com to be the perfect answer to the many food issues linked to the condition of Spike’s Disease. Whenever talking CECS, expert veterinarians will all confirm that unfortunately, to this day, CECS is still incurable, but it can certainly be managed with a suitable diet. Tails can help you exactly with that – not the psedo free of all the food categories shop food is limited in offering, but real tailor made food for your dog. An opportunity not to be missed.
