We are committed to independent pet stores.

You won’t find our foods in mega pet stores because we believe innovation thrives in independent stores, where the focus is on health and nutrition.

NutriSource Reviews

Erica A.

I would just like to comment on the quality of your product. It is far superior to other well known brands, and I feel like I am making the right choice for my cats’ nutrition by choosing NutriSource. My cats absolutely love it and they appear to be much more active and playful than regular brands where they tend to become lethargic. I will definitely be buying this brand from now on for my five cats.

I have tried every brand of dog food out there for my German shepherd who has digestive problems and weird reactions to dog food. The town I live in recently opened up a new feed store and they carry your brand. I had never come across your brand before but the owner said it was the best dog food out there. I can’t believe the difference in her on your food, it’s amazing. No gas, no diarrhea, no scratching, and she eats all her food in the dish.

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.

How many treats should I feed my dog?

How many treats should I feed my dog?

Not all dogs are food motivated during training, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t scamper with excitement when they hear the rustle of the treat bag. Dogs have a well-earned reputation for obsession with eating, which makes pet treats a powerfully effective tool to communicate approval to your dog. When you think of it that way, treats can do a lot to build the human-canine bond. As rewarding as they are to the dog, the human also gets a hit of rewarding serotonin for making that furball so glad.
