Why Rotational Feeding?

Happier Dog

  • By nature, dogs love sniffing out and tasting new foods.
  • Feeding him something different gives him the variety he craves.

Prevents food issues
before they start

  • Overexposure to the same protein can set off allergies and ingredient intolerances.
  • Starting rotational feeding early in life can help maintain good gut health.
Optimized Nutrition
  • Each animal protein contains a different amino acid profile.
  • Each amino acid plays a different role, building cells and keeping systems running.
  • By rotating proteins, you’ll introduce all the amino acids dogs need to optimize their health.

How to do rotational feeding

Sudden changes in diet can be hard on a dog’s gastrointestinal system. Common results are tummy troubles and runny poops! Pet parents find that’s not the case when they switch to NutriSource. The Good 4 Life system has probiotics, prebiotics and proprietary minerals to heal the gut and make rotational feeding a breeze.

  • Cleans up bad bacteria in the gut
  • Soothes and eliminates irritation
  • Improves bioavailability in your pet
Tips for rotational feeding
  • To maintain freshness, buy several smaller bags of kibble.
  • Rotate your protein types: poultry, beef, fish, pork.
  • Don’t overlook novel proteins. Bison, kangaroo, wild boar and pheasant all have a unique slate of amino acids.
  • Move between the lines: Trade off grain-inclusive formulas with grain-free as well as our PureVita and Element line.
  • Add wet entrees to make mealtime more exciting. Meaty bites and savory gravy add texture and aroma.


Start rotating proteins

Once your dog is enjoying NutriSource, it’s time to mix it up.
