NutriSource Reviews

Rebecca

One of my four dogs has had horrible skin issues. After multiple vet visits & even changing vets, we tried NutriSource Salmon LID food. I have to say, his skin looks amazing, he's no longer on steroids or antibiotics, and we don't see our vet as often! We have switched all of our dogs to your food, and they all look so much healthier! ...

"I have been using NutriSource for a little over three years now and I am a believer. My dogs look like they could run a marathon and then wrestle a bear. They look strong, healthy and most importantly, happy. The feeding amount suggestions you have printed on the bag are right on and really allow the dogs to grow flawlessly. Thank you very much!"  ...

Hair, hair everywhere: Why is my dog shedding so much?

Hair, hair everywhere: Why is my dog shedding so much?

Most pet owners enjoy the tactile sensation of running their hands over their pet’s soft, cuddly fur. In fact, studies show petting a cuddly animal can actively reduce stress. That said, we’re generally not as enthusiastic about encountering their abundant fur once it’s fallen out, turned into a gazillion individual hairs and become attached to our furniture, our cars, our clothing or even our food.

Hashing out healthcare: Is pet insurance worth the money?

Hashing out healthcare: Is pet insurance worth the money?

If you’re among the many dedicated pet owners who end up shelling out hundreds of dollars in veterinary care every year, you may be wondering whether pet insurance would be a good future investment. The answer to that involves a lot of different factors, including your location, the age, size and breed of your pet and his preexisting conditions. Another consideration could be his projected lifespan; after all, with better pet foods and pet care, our furry friends are living longer and they’re more likely to face an age-related illness.

Silence is golden: Which dog breeds bark the least?

Silence is golden: Which dog breeds bark the least?

Most of us understand that barking is a dog’s natural mode of communication, and that dogs bark for a number of different reasons — to ward off perceived threats, to express emotions such as fear, excitement, anxiety or boredom, to greet others, etc. But that doesn’t make a relentlessly barking dog any easier to take when we’re tired, stressed, longing for peace and quiet and/or trying to listen to someone or something else.

Does your dog or cat like to lounge in the sun? Here’s why

Does your dog or cat like to lounge in the sun? Here’s why

On any given day, you may notice that Fluffy continually seeks out a beam of light in which to sunbathe for her afternoon nap. Similarly, Fido may find the warmest, sunniest patch in your yard in which to lay down and relax after a long walk or a morning of play.

Why? Like humans, many animals simply like the soothing feel of the sun on their skin and fur. But there are likely other reasons related to their physiology and their instincts for self-preservation.

Here are some of the most common reasons dogs and cats like to lay in the sun.

Does your dog need a lift? A ramp or a set of pet steps may be the answer

Does your dog need a lift? A ramp or a set of pet steps may be the answer

Dogs think nothing of leaping up onto the bed, the sofa or into the car so they can get close to their favorite people. However, if your dog seems to need a lot more coaxing to join you, that’s a sign that making the jump is a painful prospect for your best friend. Or, if your dog’s short legs and small stature require Superman-like leaps, they could very well end up injuring a knee or paw, especially if they’re landing on a hard surface, like cement. Bottom line, jumping on and off a higher perch is a high-load activity that can be hard on your dog’s joints, causing inflammation or even injury. That’s where providing a ramp or a set of pet stairs can help your pet move about safely and comfortably.
