You guys already know that we’re (mostly) gluten-free in our house, but it’s not just the humans. Our keeshond Kallie has been gluten-free and grain-free for the last few years too, and her digestive system is thankful for it. This is what a happy dog looks like!
But it wasn’t always that way. Way back when, she was not a happy dog, and we were not happy pet parents. For months and months our poor doggie had diarrhea multiple times a week. There wasn’t anything wrong with her medically, so we started experimenting with different foods to help her digestive system. I read about the benefits of a raw food diet like a shinier coat, healthier skin, more energy, and smaller, firmer stools, but with a busy family and work schedule, frankly I didn’t think I had the time or energy to do it. Commercial grain-free kibble in a bag was just so much easier (no mess, no fuss!) and more economical.
And that’s where things stood until recently, when I learned about a new grain-free dog and cat food from Nutrience® now available at PetSmart® that offers the best of both worlds. Nutrience Subzero™ combines grain-free protein-rich kibble with freeze-dried raw meat to deliver the nutritional benefits of raw food in a convenient & easy to use package.
I feed my family high quality, unprocessed food because I want what’s best for them. Kallie’s a part of our family too, so why would it be any different for her? Nutrience says their pet food has “No Bad Anything,” and just a quick look at the ingredients list confirms that. No fillers, no corn, no wheat, no soy, no by-products, and no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives.
Subzero is made with fresh Canadian sourced raw meat, poultry, and Pacific wild-caught fish, infused with four key Nutriboost™ ingredients for optimal health, then gently freeze-dried to lock in its natural goodness. I love that this is a truly Made in Canada high quality dog food. It’s made right here in BC in fact!
Subzero comes in three regionally-inspired formulas:
- Canadian Pacific – Fresh wild-caught Pacific salmon, herring, hake, sole, cod, and Arrowtooth flounder.
- Fraser Valley – Fresh deboned chicken, turkey, wild-caught Pacific salmon, herring, and cod.
- Prairie Red – Fresh beef, wild boar, bison, wild-caught Pacific salmon, herring, and cod.
Each bag contains grain-free kibble, freeze-dried raw protein, and Nutriboost with these key nutritionally beneficial ingredients:
- Green-Lipped Mussels – A natural anti-inflammatory to support joint health
- Pacific Cod Liver – A rich source of omega-3 fatty acids for a healthy skin & coat
- Pumpkin – A good source of dietary fiber to support digestion
- Acadian Kelp – A variety of seaweed loaded with natural antioxidants to support a healthy immune system
Now that it’s so easy to give Kallie the nutritional benefits of raw food, I’m going to have to give this a try. After all, we want her to be a part of our family for a long time to come!
