Taking a Chance on Nutrience Grain Free Dog Food

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Mums the Word Network and Nutrience. All opinions are my own.

I talk a lot about my kids, m’kay? Because I’m a mom, and that’s what I do. But believe it or not, there are other members of our family too. This is Kallie.

Kallie the keeshond

Kallie was part of our family long before the kids came along, and I have to give credit where credit is due. She is the sweetest, most patient, most forgiving dog I’ve ever met. She tolerates curious toddlers poking and pulling, yanking on her ears, reaching in her mouth, checking to see if she’s really a miniature pony in disguise, and testing her load-bearing capacity. We love her and want to keep her healthy and active for a long time.

When Kallie first joined our family she ate budget kibble. It was convenient, cheap, and I could buy huge bags of it at the big box store. As she grew older, we noticed she started getting a lot of “digestive issues”. That’s a nice way of saying we kept a roll of paper towels permanently next to the front door because she was having diarrhea four or five times a week. We watched to make sure she wasn’t eating anything she wasn’t supposed to, we took her to the vet, we had all sorts of tests done, but we could never find a cause for her tummy troubles. It seemed to be a chronic issue with her, and we chalked it up to her being an “anxious” dog.

Dogs can have anxiety too.

We didn’t give up though, and we started trying different pet foods, hoping to find something that might help her. Eventually we tried grain-free dog food, and very quickly we realized she was no longer having those digestive issues anymore. She’s been almost completely diarrhea-free for three years now – so much nicer for Kallie and for everybody else involved too!

All this means that we’re very careful about what she eats. So when Nutrience asked if we’d be willing to give their new grain-free line of dog food a try, I was a bit hesitant. I really did not want to go back to those days of paper towels and emergency baths.

Nutrience Grain Free Dog Food - Pork, Lamb, & Venison Formula

Nutrience Grain Free Dog Food - Pork, Lamb, & Venison FormulaBut I decided to take a chance. Nutrience says their pet food has β€œNo Bad Anything,” and after a look at the ingredients I can see why. We received a bag of Grain Free Pork, Lamb, and Venison Formula, and the first three ingredients are deboned pork, pork meal, and lamb meal.

I feed my kids good quality, unprocessed food because I want what’s best and what’s healthy for them. Well, Kallie’s a part of our family so why would it be any different for her?

Instead of fillers like wheat, corn meal, and corn gluten, Nutrience’s grain free dog food is made with premium animal and vegetable proteins, ingredients closer to a dog’s ancestral diet. No corn, wheat, soy, by-products, artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. Sounds good to me!

But does she like it? Yes, she does!

Eating grain free dog food helps reduce our dog's digestive issues.

And as for her “end products”, we’re still good in that department too. Thank goodness!

  • I would like to feed my dog the Ocean Fish Formula dry food. It seems like it would be really healthy for him and that’s important to me. I also think he would like it.

      • I have Keeshonds too…Three of them..and your right,not a very common dog out there! I rotate foods and was considering Nutrience Grainfree in my rotation and yes my Kees are very prone to GI upsets big time…..I was showing one of them AKC,and that’s the first time I saw so many Kees together in one ring….love this breed……

  • I think they’d really like the small breed dry PORK, LAMB & VENISON FORMULA dog food. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t turn their noses up to any, though. πŸ™‚

  • I would love to try Nutrience Natural Healthy Adult dry dog food in Turkey, Chicken & Herring for my dogs πŸ™‚

  • My dog would likely find SMALL BREED – TURKEY, CHICKEN & HERRING FORMULA & Cabin Chews Elk Antler Sticks, Small really tasty. Thank you.

  • I would feed Small Breed – Turkey, Chicken & Herring Formula since both of our dogs are small.

  • After reading them all, I’m going to have to say the Pork, Lamb & Venison Formula, pretty sure this one would benefit my pooches!!

  • Hmm, I like the options. For my small dog, i would go with the small breed: chicken, turkey and herring and i would chose either the chicken, turkey and herring or the pork, lamb or venison for the rest of my animals. lol

  • I would like to feed my dog the Pork, Lamb and venison formula. I am certain she would love it.

  • I would choose the Nutrience Natural Healthy Adult dry dog food in Turkey, Chicken & Herring for my dogs πŸ™‚

  • My dog is a Catahoula so I think the one I would love for him to have is the Pork, Lamb & Venison Formula which is very suitable for his breed. πŸ™‚

  • I would choose the Ocean Fish Formula because Merli is fond of seafood. I appreciate that Nutrience is grain free as Merli’s skin is sensitive.

  • I’d most like to feed my dog the Pork, Lamb & Venison Formula. She isn’t a fan of fish, so I think this one would be the one she would like the most.
