Meet their Golden Girl

During a trip to Europe in 1974, animal lover Sissy McGill noticed that European Great Danes were living much longer than their American counterparts — around 14 years instead of just 8.

Holy smokes!

Believing that all dogs deserve to live their longest, healthiest lives, she was determined to improve pet nutrition using simple, natural ingredients.

Thus, Solid Gold was born. Their first offering was “Hund-N-Flocken,” a groundbreaking recipe rich in high-quality meat, whole grains, and nutrient-rich superfoods.

Sample by sample, Sissy and her team built a following of diehard dog lovers who shared Solid Gold’s belief that holistic nutrition is the key to extending pet lifespans.

That means more time with your best friend by your side.

Super Powers

In the 40 years since, their goal of helping pets thrive and live their lives to the fullest remains the same. Today, the pet lovers at Solid Gold offer a tail-to-snout line of wet and dry recipes for dogs and cats, plus tasty treats, supplements, and more.

Their unique blend of 20 nutrient-rich superfoods is something you won’t find anywhere else, and it’s tailored to give your pet the lifelong health and longevity they deserve. We’re talkin’:

  • Omega-6 and -3 fatty acids for healthy skin, coat, and immune system.
  • Pre- and probiotics for top-notch gut health, digestion, and nutrient absorption.
  • High-quality, responsibly sourced protein from real beef, poultry, and fish.

All of Solid Gold’s drool-inducing ingredients are packed into recipes to fit your pet’s specific needs. Pick up a bag of Barking at the Moon with Beef for your on-the-go adult pup, or some Mighty Mini with Chicken, Turkey or Lamb for your toy or small dog. Regardless of your BFF’s size, age, and unique dietary needs, Solid Gold has something that’ll fit the bill.

(Not to mention it’ll be wrapped up in the prettiest package we ever did see.)

Give it a Taste

All of that sounds pretty puppin’ good, right? It gets better: Solid Gold also offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If your fur baby hasn’t fallen in love with her new food after the first week or two, you can return the rest of the bag for a full refund or store credit.
