How we take good food to great
Nutrience is pet food with a purpose. There are a lot of pet foods on the market, so we know it isn't easy to work out the differences at a glance. Here are some of the things we think pet owners should know that will help making choosing the right food for your pet much easier...
Simple, Natural, Wholesome
From our ‘No Bad Anything’ promise to the unique small-batch production for superior control, every bag of Nutrience represents an unwavering attention to quality and an ongoing commitment to natural, wholesome nutrition.
Our goal is to give dogs & cats everything they need and nothing they don't, using nature to take good food to great. That means no corn, no wheat, no soy, no by-products, no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. And if you need to avoid gluten, wheat, corn or rice as well, Nutrience has grain free options for your cat and dog also.
Meat and Fish Proteins
Whether it’s fresh, cage-free, deboned chicken or turkey, wild-caught Pacific salmon or Atlantic herring, or any of the many other human-grade meat and fish proteins we use to make Nutrience, you know they'll always be the very best that can be sourced.Our protein sources include:

These tiny seeds are packed with nutritional value. They're a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids and high in soluble and insoluble fibre for digestive health and smaller, firmer stools.
Coconut oil is a natural source of lauric acid, a medium chain triglyceride (MCT). Lauric acid nutritionally elevates the metabolism for energy and vitality, helps protect from illness and supports healing, one of the reasons coconut oil is popular for pets (and people!) for skin concerns. Coconut oil has the added benefit of nutritionally enhancing digestion.
