Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free Lamb and Sweet Potato.
Hi-Tek Naturals brand dog foods are produced by its parent company Hi-Tek Rations, a company which touts its refusal to use ethoxyquin (a food preservative that has been connected to liver build-up) in any of their foods, as well as lack of product recalls ordered to date. Hi-Tek Rations is also dedicated to sourcing quality ingredients raised in the US, and is based in Dublin, GA. All Hi-Tek Naturals brand foods include selenium yeast, which is a safer anti-cancer supplement, as well as chelated minerals, which help dogs absorb proteins more easily.
Under the Hi-Tek Naturals brand, there are two main formulas: Hi-Tek Naturals and Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free.
The Hi-Tek Naturals formula is available in five recipes:
Hi-Tek Naturals is packed with proteins from lamb, chicken, and pork meals. It also relies on brown rice to provide carbohydrates, supplemented by barley, white rice, and whole milo, as well as healthy chicken fat that’s high in linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) and boosts energy. Based on ingredients and meat content, Dogfoodadvisor.com recommends Hi-Tek Naturals food and gives it 3.5 out of 5 star rating and estimates its nutrient breakdown to be about 26% protein, 13% fat, and 53% carbs. Amazon customer reviews give it a 3.6 out of 5 overall (Chicken Meal and Rice Formula, $44.51/35 lbs) – this rating appears to have been skewed lower by a bad batch of food in late 2012 and an unexpected raise in price, which has since been been resolved and lowered again.
And Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free is available in three recipes:
Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free uses several different meat and fish meals, as well as sweet potatoes, peas, and eggs in order to pack in protein. These foods are an excellent choice for dogs with grain allergies, and have received better reviews than Hi-Tek Naturals overall. Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free earned a sterling 5-star rating from DFA and an estimated nutritional profile of 36% protein, 18% fat, and 39% carbs. These formulas have also earned a 4.6 out of 5 stars through Amazon customer reviews (Chicken Meal and Sweet Potato Formula, $47.38/30 lbs), with many happy customers citing improved energy levels, coat luster, and affordable price point for high-quality food.
Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free uses canola oil, which causes concerns in some people about purported health risks. However, moderate use of canola oil has not been proven to have any negative effects on health, and is defended by many other people who believe it’s healthy. Whether or not you believe canola oil is safe for your dog is up to you.
Overall, Hi-Tek Naturals brand dog foods are highly rated, although Naturals Grain Free appears to be the better and healthier choice within the range. Great for dog owners watching out for grain allergies, or who just prefer to feed their pets natural foods, at a lower, competitive price.
