NutriSource Reviews

Garry

I wanted to send a word of thanks regarding NutriSource for Senior’s. Over the past number of years we had watched our dog, Gracy, start to age and begin to "go downhill". As a pup she had both hips replaced due to hip dysplasia. We thought her slowing down was due to age (she is 13) and the effects of the extensive early surgery. Her fur, which had always been shiny, looked dull and was covered in dandruff. She had difficulty moving around and never wanted to play ...

I put NutriSource in with my dogs food and they would sort around and eat the NutriSource. My main dog l had been having trouble with allergies on the other food. Since switching to NutriSource, he has had no trouble with the allergies. My dogs have better stamina, recover quicker and kennel cleanup is so much better now ...

How do dogs see?

How do dogs see?

Almost every dog owner in existence has had the same, singular question cross their mind at some point: What does my dog see? It’s a simple-enough question on the surface, but it turns out a dog’s sight is quite complex and different from that of humans. Understanding those differences can help us better understand why our canine companions do the quirky things they do.

Does your dog love you? Here’s how you can tell

Does your dog love you? Here’s how you can tell

We all express love, affection and admiration. We understand these expressions from person to person. But the love language between you and your dog may be a bit different. We show our pups we love them in many ways: we pet them, give them treats, rub their bellies and ask them “Who’s a good boy?” in a high-pitched voice. However, it’s hard to speak the same language when you’re two separate species, which can make it a little harder to get your message across.

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.
