Nutrisource Dog Food gets an above average rating from us. We like that the ingredients are fresh, locally sourced, and meet the AAFCO standards. High-quality meats top the ingredient lists, and the food contains plenty of vitamins and minerals for a balanced diet. We also like the addition of probiotics for healthy digestive systems and better immune systems. The formulas also contain healthy grains like brown rice for fiber, and barley, which has a low glycemic index that can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
One thing we are not fond of is the inclusion of starchy carbohydrates, and plant-based fillers in the dry foods. These include corn gluten meal, white rice, and brewers yeast. Some dogs may be able to handle these ingredients, while others may exhibit signs of allergies. However, the canned wet food does not contain any of these ingredients. Overall, Nutrisource is a high-quality, nutritious dog food.
Dog owners have very positive things to say about Nutrisource Dog Food. The wide range of formulas are customised to large and small breeds, puppies, adults, and seniors. The company also makes weight management and super performance formulas. Dogs seem to do very well with this food, exhibiting high energy levels, shiny coats, and normal stools.
Some dog owners who have obesity prone dogs have reported that their dogs have lost weight and have managed to maintain ideal weight levels while on a Nutrisource diet. Dogs seem to like the taste of the all-natural formulas, and owners are pleased that the food is sourced locally in the United States.
A few dog owners are wary about the inclusion of corn gluten meal in some of the formulas, as they believe this is an unnecessary plant-based protein substitute. Despite the concerns about this controversial ingredient, dogs and dog owners seem to be satisfied with Nutrisource Dog Food.
According to many dog owners, Nutrisource is one of the few pet food formulas that have actually improved over time. Nutrisource markets their company as producing “Super Premium Nutrition for Pets”. They have met the AAFCO standards, and for the most part, Nutrisource uses high-quality, locally sourced ingredients.
The company who makes Nutrisource dog food is called Tuffy’s Pet Foods. Tuffy’s Pet Foods was founded by Darrell “Tuffy” Nelson in the year 1947. In the beginning, Tuffy’s Pet Foods was a company that sold feed formulas for livestock. Eventually, Darrell and his son, Kenny Nelson, developed several different formulas that could be fed to pets.
According to current information, there are no Nutrisource dog food formulas listed on the FDA’s pet food recall list, and Nutrisource has not been subject to recent recalls. However, it’s important to remember that recalls may happen at any time. In order to make sure that your dog’s food is safe, it’s always highly recommended that you check the FDA’s pet food recall website. This will help you to stay updated on the latest pet food recall information.
Though Nutrisource previously only offered a few choices for pet food, they have now expanded their product line, even producing several grain-free formulas. Nutrisource grain-free formulas derive the majority of their carbohydrates from pea products. The first ingredient in all Nutrisource formulas is either a meat or a meat meal. Other ingredients may include brewers yeast, dried eggs and tomato pomace. The carbohydrates in formulas that are not-grain free may include brown rice, oatmeal, barley and corn gluten meal.
Some Nutrisource dog food formulas do contain corn gluten meal. Since corn gluten meal is one of the three most common ingredients to cause allergies in dogs, it should be avoided (especially if your dog has a sensitive digestive system). When feeding your dog Nutrisource dog food, it’s always best if you thoroughly read the ingredients list, especially if your dog has special dietary requirements.
