Nutrience Grain Free Dry Food- Dog Days

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

I was very excited to be approached to review the new Nutrience Grain Free dry dog food line, as we actually just adopted my cousin’s poochie and I am incredibly proud of our gorgeous girl. Our black lab now has a boxer buddy, helping to keep her young and healthy.

Man, does this pup ever eat though! Boxers are known to have some GI tract issues and it’s imperative that Keila, which is our new pup’s name, be given food that is satiating enough in a small quantity that she doesn’t want to eat a ton at a time. This will help prevent bloat and we can make certain our pup’s frequent meals are leaving her full, happy and providing all nutrients that she needs by making sure that her food includes good, quality ingredients. Isn’t that important for all pets though, really?

Anyway, for this particular endeavor I wanted to give Keila the Nutrience Grain Free pork, lamb and venison combo that can be found on their site here. I figured that, if I were a dog, I would probably be happy to have the variety of meat proteins and, with the same thought in my head, I would appreciate the quality. Afterall, as Nutrience touts, you “Nourish the body. Feed the spirit” and we want to make certain that our fur baby receives all of the nourishment she requires, especially during this stage of her growth.

As you can see, she was so ready to be the guinea pig gorgeous dog for this review;

I was surprised to note that coconut oil is included in the food, which I absolutely love using for pretty much anything and actually feel a little closer to my dogs, as they’re ingesting it regularly too. Awh, the whole fam is in on the coconut craze now! I assume this is for their hair and skin, although (if the quantity is large enough) I’m betting it would help with immune support, keeping them regular and cleaning their teeth. Unlike my husband, Keila took her coconut oil without fuss…


The only ingredient that I’m not sure about is “yeast extract”, which can be a broad group of ingredients and the label is unclear about the type of extract that’s included in this food. Some are used for supplementation, some are just flavor enhancers. I wish there were more specifications regarding this, or it wasn’t in there at all (glutamic acid derivatives are blamed for a slew of issues in humans), but this food additive is designated as safe by the FDA and has been for decades.

What I love about Nutrience pet food is that this particular line is good for both a mature dog and a puppy, which saves us from having to buy different food for Shirley Schmidt (our 3 year old lab who, yes, has two names) and Keila (who is only four months old and came with the name… or she’d be a Denny Crane). This is incredibly convenient and preferable, considering I know they would both eat the other’s food anyways, since we now only have to worry about serving sizes.


Now THESE are puppy dog eyes. #boystakenote #heartmelt

I trust sites like Dog Food Advisor, which has given the Nutrience brand a 5 star rating, and feel that this is a fairly affordable, quality pet food that my boxer beauty seems to enjoy.

    My cat had been eating this cat food for about 1 year when he developed difficulty urinating. The vet explained that in grain free food the carbs are replaced with minerals like phosphorus which is what is responsible for urinary problems in cats. He also explained that the amounts given in on the bag (.8% phosphorus) is the MINIMUM amount and the fact that the company does not post the MAXIMUM amount is because they know it is harmful. So I do not reccommend that anyone feed their cat this food unless they want $$$ vet bills to fix their cats urinary blockage.
