    First time trying any Steve's pet food products. Freeze dried beef, Mini Dox loves it! Almost finished with first bag and he still loves it. At almost 8 years old his energy and overall health are noticeably improved to near puppy levels. I will continue to feed him Steve's products and without hesitation would recommend the product!
