But once introduced to Beef & Bison by Fresh pet, our ward Molly’s dinner, he was not going back to Science Diet or Precise canned. His choice has improved his incidence of tummy upset and lower GI irritability and his coat glistens. He is satisfied. I haven’t tried the other flavors. I find him waiting to be fed instead of grazing on crunchy carbs that he’s really not interested in for the most part. He’s not sharing, lol and happily eats his portion.
“Bison tend to make poor pets,”  says on the website of the Alberta Bison Centre. He notes:

A great tasting complement to the dry Taste of the Wild formulas, the High Prairie Canine Formula with Bison in Gravy will satisfy even the most finicky dogs. This complete and balanced formula can also be fed as your pet’s sole diet. Made with bison, this formula offers a taste sensation like no other. Contains bison, lamb and venison for a blend of quality animal protein sources to meet the needs of your special pet. Potatoes and peas are excellent sources of nutrients, but also are highly digestible carbohydrate sources. Tomatoes, blueberries and raspberries deliver antioxidants to help give your friend a healthy lifestyle. The Bridgeses’ pet bison, named Wild Thing by their daughter, certainly lives up to his name.

I am not sure of what you mean by having a bison for a pet. Bison tend to make poor pets. Although they have been domesticated, they retain a lot of their wild instincts. They can be tamed but hen they are frightened they usually resort to their "flight or fight" response in order to save their skin. They are difficult to ame to a level that I would consider a pet.The other aspect of bison that makes them poor pets is that they are an animals with strong herd instincts. They don't like to be alone. They feel safer in the company of other bison. They may go through fences looking for a herd to be with. It is better to have a few bison rather than just one.Some people have done it with bottle raised bison but even then lots of bison still don't trust people. I know of about 3-4 bison that have been tamed to the point that people can pet them and be around them safely. I also know of a lot of bottle raised bison that are still fearful of humans even after the bottle raising experience.A Texas couple has turned their ranch house into a little slice of the great plains by taking in a pet bison and giving it free run of the place. The 11-year-old beast, named Wild Thing, even has its own bedroom.If your plan is to keep a few bison as "pets" you can get information from our website in our "Resource Library". We have quite a bit of information on raising bison. Check out the "Bison Basics" section. If you have any specific questions, give us a call or e-mail. There is also a book called the "Bison Breeders Handbook" available at The National Bison Association at:Schoeve that she didn't believe Bullet, who was raised by humans and has never lived in the wild, would do well in a situation with no human contact. Bullet seems to be extraordinarily tame and friendly, but experts don’t typically recommend keeping bison as pets.
