What makes a good diet?

A good 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 by-products, chemical flavorings, 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.

Nulo

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.
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.
