I'm always hesitant when it comes to trying new food for Logan! He's sensitive to changes in his diet and will opt not to eat at all if he doesn't like a new food or it bothers him! When given the opportunity to try NUTRISCA™ by Dogswell, I did a lot of research first, read reviews on the food, and talked to my vet before making the switch for a one month trial with Logan (we're currently in week 2). We opted for the NUTRISCA™ Lamb Meal and Chickpea since he's used to Lamb Meal and Rice, so we thought it would be easier for Logan to transition to the new food.
Why Grain Free & Potato Free? Feeding grain free is great for returning to the natural, ancestral diet of your dog. NUTRISCA™ Lamb and Chickpea Recipe is one of the only grain free dry food formulas without potato or tapioca, both of which are high on the glycemic index.
Balanced Nutrition with Fresh Lamb or Chicken First. Antibiotic-free lamb and chicken provides an optimal source of protein and amino acids essential for muscle development. Balanced level of proteins, antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables, and chelated minerals provide optimum nutrition and palatability. Chelated minerals are more easily digested and absorbed by the body than common minerals.
Why Peas & Chickpeas? Peas and chickpeas are low glycemic legumes with exceptional benefits. They are great sources of protein, fiber, and the essential amino acid lysine. Lysine is vital for many body functions including growth and maintenance of tissues and muscle mass.
Full of Antioxidants, Omegas & DHA Premium fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, apricots, and cranberries, along with Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and flaxseed, are exceptional sources of antioxidants that help maintain a healthy immune system. Flaxseed and salmon oil are high in Omega fatty acids, supporting healthy skin and a shiny coat. Salmon oil also contains DHA, a fatty acid important for optimal brain and vision development in puppies.
Nutrisca Is Everything You Want, Nothing You Don’t NO Gluten, Soy, Corn, Wheat, Flour, BHA/BHT, Added Steroids, Antibiotics, Ethoxyquin, Added Hormones, Artificial Colors, Flavors, or Preservatives.
So what does Logan think about NUTRISCA™ Lamb and Chickpea?
Does the image of a dog gobbling down his food when previously he would let food sit in his bowl for days at a time conjure up images of a dog who thinks this stuff is yummy? We thought so! Logan really likes the taste of NUTRISCA™ Lamb and Chickpea and it's not upsetting his sensitive digestive tract or skin issues in the first two weeks of use either! What I really like about the food? I can read and understand the ingredients because they include foods such as lamb, peas, and apples (just to name a few) so I'm not as concerned about what Logan's eating. The main downside to NUTRISCA™ in the eyes of a great dane owner is that we typically buy over 65 pounds of food every 6 weeks, and NUTRISCA™ only comes in 5 lb, 15lb, and 28 lb bags so we would be going through food quickly and at this time can only order online.
Logan likes this food, so if his skin condition continues to improve and he avoids his fall yeast infection outbreak, the additional cost might just be warranted to keep him on NUTRISCA™ Lamb and Chickpea.
