At this time, there is limited information on Wildology and its origins. It is known that it is owned by Midco Distributing LLC.
Diamond Pet Foods manufacturing facilities are in the United States. However, it is not clear whether all the ingredients used in Wildology recipes are sourced from the United States or abroad.
Wildology Product Range
Wildologys dog food range consists of seven dry dog food recipes. However, all of these recipes are not designed for the average adult dog and some fill important niches.
This includes a recipe for puppies, a recipe for large breed dogs, and a recipe aimed at very active dogs. These dogs require different nutrition so it can be advantageous to provide them with a specifically tailored recipe.
Wildology currently produces a single dry cat food recipe.
They do not produce any canned or wet cat food products.
The nutrition provided by Wildology dog food varies significantly. However, despite this variety, the nutrition is above average which consists of above average proportions of protein and fat and a below average proportion of carbohydrates.
Dogs are omnivores and so can excel on a diet with a significant proportion of carbohydrates. However, dogs do best when their diet is focused around meat and fish ingredients and the protein and fat that they can provide.
The nutrition provided by Wildology’s single cat food recipe is average and consists of an average proportion of protein and fat.
Most dry cat food recipes offer average nutrition. This is as cats are obligate carnivores and do not require plant-based material in their diet.
These plant-based ingredients provide a large portion of unneeded carbohydrates which would be better replaced with additional protein or fat.
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
- Chicken Meal
- Turkey Meal
- Lamb Meal
- Beef Meal
Wildology uses a modest range of high-quality meat and fish ingredients. This includes most of the staples of the industry such as Chicken, Turkey, Beef, and Salmon.
These ingredients can provide high-quality animal-based protein and fat and are relatively cost effective in comparison to other ingredients.
Wildology does not make use of some of the uncommon meat and fish ingredients that other providers utilize. Learn more about these in our article Best Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Guide.
Other Notable Ingredients
Ocean Fish Meal is an average-quality fish ingredient. It can be a positive addition as it does provide animal protein to a pet’s diet which is more advantageous than plant-based protein.
However, the fact that it is very vague and there isn’t clarity on which fish are present makes it a step below other fish meals. Learn more about Ocean Fish Meal in our article Ocean Fish Meal In Dog Food.
Potato Protein is found in one of Wildology’s recipes. Potato Protein is a Potato By-product and is considered a low-quality ingredient. It can be used to boost the overall proportion of protein in a recipe without using additional meat or fish ingredients.
Learn more about Potato Protein and other Potato By-products in our article Potatoes, Potato Protein & Potato Starch in Dog Food.
Wildology uses a variety of grain ingredients in its recipes. Examples include Brown Rice, Barley, White Rice, Millet, and Oatmeal.
Some of these, such as Brown Rice and Oatmeal, would be considered the preferred or best grain ingredients. They can provide additional nutritional beyond being a dense source of carbohydrates.
However, others, such as white rice, are not considered high-quality additions and do not provide any notable nutrition beyond their carbohydrate content.
Dried Beet Pulp is becoming a regular feature in dog food. It is used to provide fiber to a dogs diet. However, beyond this fiber content Beet Pulp does not provide any additional nutrition. Learn more about Dried Beet Pulp in our article Dried Beet Pulp In Dog Food.
Many brands use Flaxseed to boost the level of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids in their recipes. Flaxseed is probably the best plant-based source of these fatty acids. However, many believe that Flaxseed can provide additional benefits. Read more about Flaxseed in our article Flaxseed In Dog Food.
Canola Oil is one of two vegetable oils that are commonly found in dog food, the other being Sunflower Oil. These oils are added to boost the overall proportion of fat, as well as improve the ratio of beneficial fats such as the Omega Fatty Acids. Learn more about Canola Oil and Sunflower Oil in our articles Canola Oil In Dog Food & Sunflower Oil In Dog Food.
Wildology Animal Testing
We have no information on what type of testing or feeding trials that Wildology participates in.
We strongly believe that laboratory or invasive testing on animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will see a significant decline.
We have no information that leads us to believe that any Wildology products have ever been recalled.
However, given the very young age of the brand, this is no surprise. We hope Wildology continues to take the safety and quality of its manafacturing processes seriously.
We encourage you to be vigilant of future recalls of Wildology or any other brands products.

Best of Wildology
Chase is Wildology’s recipe aimed at very active dogs. As a consequence, it has a much more satisfactory nutritional profile which includes higher proportions of both protein and fat.
The high proportion of protein and fat is thanks to the generous portions of three core meat ingredients. Chicken, Chicken Meal, and Turkey Meal. All three of these poultry ingredients should be considered high-quality.
The recipe also contains a mix of Brown Rice and White Rice. Brown Rice is one of the best grain ingredients that can be found in dog food and adds fiber, vitamins, and minerals to its carbohydrate content. Sadly, White Rice isn’t an ideal ingredient but the portion used is relatively small.
