NUTRISCA Dog Food from DOGSWELL Review and Giveaway



As most if not all of you know we have a Boxer pup, well he isn’t so much of a puppy anymore but he is quite picky about what he eats and certain dog foods cause him to have serious stomach problems, where he can’t hold any foods down, so we have to buy a certain brand of dog food. I was recently contacted about reviewing NUTRISCA Dry Dog Food from DOGSWELL and I was a bit nervous at first due to Cash’s sensitive stomach, but after reading into NUTRISCA we decided to go ahead and review it anyways and boy am I glad we did!

About DOGSWELL (Taken From Website):

At DOGSWELL®, we care about what we feed our own pets and know that you do as well. All DOGSWELL® products are made from premium, natural ingredients with one catch – unlike most food available for pets, DOGSWELL® products come in a variety of functional formulas that are healthy for your dog and cat.

All DOGSWELL® products are made from natural meat and poultry with absolutely no added hormones, processed gluten, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Products are free of wheat, corn, soy, and flour. DOGSWELL® food and treats do not contain BHA, BHT or Ethoxyquin, artificial preservatives that extend the shelf life of a product.

By using the best natural healthy ingredients combined with functionality, DOGSWELL® provides pure nutrition with natural benefits. It’s simple, functional and just what your pet wants and needs.

About NUTRISCA:

DOGSWELL is proud to introduce NUTRISCA, our new line of grain free dry foods for dogs. It’s one of the only grain free recipes without potato or tapioca, both of which are high on the glycemic index, and may contribute to weight gain. Instead low glycemic chickpeas and peas are used, which are excellent sources of protein, fiber and folic acid.

Everything you want, Nothing you don’t:
No Gluten
No Soy
No Corn
No Wheat
No Flour
No BHA/BHT
No Added Steroids
No Ethoxyquin
No Added Hormones
No Artificial Colors
No Artificial Flavors
No Artificial Preservatives


Our Thoughts:

We were sent a 4lb bag of our choice of either the Lamb and Chickpea Recipe or the Chicken and Chickpea Recipe to review, and we immediately decided on the Lamb and Chickpea to review! Our bag of food arrived very quickly and just in the nick of time, we had just fed the last bit of the food we were using to Cash that morning! The first thing I did was open the bag and have a smell for myself because I am very strict on the rule that if I wouldn’t eat or if I don’t like the smell I wont feed it to Cash!

I gave Cash a couple of scoops for lunch/dinner of the new NUTRISCA Lamb and Chickpea dry food and I was amazed at how quickly he took to the new food and it didn’t take him long to have every bit of it out of his food bowl! He really seemed to love it but the real test was rather or not it was going to upset his sensitive stomach and I figured within 30 minuets or so we would know if he was going to keep it down or not, and we are very happy to report that he had no problems with his stomach switching from his regular brand to the NUTRISCA Lamb and Chickpea recipe and I have to say that he prefers the NUTRISCA over his original brand in a taste test where we put a bowl of each down and let him choose and he immediately chose the NUTRISCA!

The best part besides the fact that NUTRISCA is healthier for him and that it doesn’t irritate his stomach is that it doesn’t cost anymore than the other special brand we had be buying for him so I’m very happy to say that we are DOGSWELL and NUTRISCA’s newest loyal customers!

Bottom Line:

Cash really loves the NUTRISCA Lamb and Chickpea dry food and we have since started purchasing it on a regular basis, yes, it does cost more than tradition dry dog foods but if you have a dog with an allergies to corn like Cash or you just want to give them the best of everything Cash really recommends NUTRISCA!!!! We can’t wait to also try the Chicken and Chickpea recipe as well!

  87. Mellow Mut which is just chicken breast strips and vitamin E. This would be great for our Jack. He eats grain free food or he scratches horribly. Well, then I started feeding the new grain free canned food-same brand. Hacking and wouldn't stop-it has potatoes. So now he eats grain free and eggs or meat we have. Funny, he has to eat like me-I have RA. I think he does also.
    Anyway, am always on the lookout for new products for the old guy.
