Nutrience are so confident in the quality of their foods they give a No Bad Anything promise. That’s a ballsy statement for a pet food manufacturer, so does it hold true?
This review is based on the Turkey, Chicken & Herring recipe for an Adult dog, but the other recipes in the range are very similar.
We find Deboned Turkey as the top ingredient in the food which is a great choice, but after cooking this will be far less prominent as it’s around 80% water uncooked. This is something to watch out for in some foods, but definitely no biggy here as we find Chicken Meal as the second ingredient. This is really good to see, and the protein content in the food (26%) suggests a decent amount of meat content. Both chicken and turkey are lean meats with highly digestible protein. Great.
The main grain is Oats, one of the better choices of grain in a dog food. It’s low calorie, high in soluble fibre, rich in grain protein, can reduce blood pressure, and boost the immune system. Green peas are a fantastic ingredient and very good for dogs, as are lentils and sweet potatoes.
The remaining ingredients are all of good quality, with a number of other meat and fish meals, a whole range of fruits and veggies, whole eggs, and even more unique ingredients such as the metabolism boosting ginseng (often found in energy foods and drinks).
All in all I think this is a wonderful food. It’s well thought out, and definitely adhere’s to the No Bad Anything promise.
