What makes a good diet?
Agood diet balances all of the important nutrients and takes into account a dog’s age, activity level, health, reproductive status and current body condition. A good dog food will be high in meat based protein, contain natural fats and oils and be free of byproducts, chemical flavors, colors and preservatives.
The importance of protein
Dogs are carnivores by preference and omnivores by necessity.
It is important to keep in mind that just because dogs can survive on an omnivorous diet does not mean that they will thrive on it. Consider the teeth of a domestic dog. With prominent canines and surfaces adapted for tearing, these are clearly the teeth of a meat eater. In truth, domestic dogs are genetically very similar to wolves. This means that most dogs will thrive on a diet that is closer to that of a carnivore than that of a true omnivore.

We proudly present WeRuVa, a luxurious, natural pet food inspired by and named after our three rescued cats, Webster, Rudi and Vanessa.

Our formulas are produced in a human food facility using many of the ingredients and processes that are used in products made for people. Our base proteins of chicken, beef and fish include only top quality muscle meat, such as white breast chicken, whole tuna loins and select cuts of beef. Then we add fresh vegetables and other unique items such as Grilld skipjack, tilapia and red bigeye tuna, as well as calamari and shirasu. Our ingredients maintain a natural look and recognizable texture which allows the pet owner to see and understand the ingredients…so what you see is what you get!

EXPERIENCE IN PET CARE
Our company started when our founders, who have a long history in professional pet care and education, began to see an escalation in overweight pets and the administration of at-home insulin shots for diabetic cats and dogs.
PET NUTRITION IN CRISIS
A study of 6,000 households and 11,000 dogs and cats confirmed the alarming trend … pets were essentially living in a “fast food nation.” Just like many of our human counterparts, dogs and cats have been significantly overfed and often enticed with nutritionally poor ingredients. To make matters worse, many of the pet foods on the store shelf were discovered to be over 12 months old – severely decreasing the taste and the potency of nutritionally rich ingredients.
A DIFFERENT KIND OF PET FOOD COMPANY
So Nulo set out to be a different kind of pet food company with no short cuts and using only the finest natural ingredients. Along with some of the brightest minds in the pet food industry, we began creating unique recipes using fresh chicken, lamb and salmon and paired them with yummy things like apples, carrots, lentils, and sweet potato.
We also made a promise to keep Nulo products the freshest recipes you’ll ever find on the store shelf or to arrive at your door. Our blends are made and distributed in smaller batches to ensure they spend less time on the shelf and taste better when they land in the bowl.
Good pet nutrition should be simple and Nulo is proud to live up to our promise of keeping pets active and healthy for years to come.
