Many of you know Chester’s story, since I write about him often. To give a quick rundown, he came to me after being dropped off at a rescue at 7 months of age and has been with me since then. Now, he is 10 years old. He started having seizures 2 years ago and after many trips to the vet as his meds were adjusted and his food was changed, he has now gone seizure free for a little over a year. One of the changes was to his food as we went to a grain free food and I believe that each change has had a part in getting him healthy again.
When I was offered a free bag of grain free Nutrience as a BzzAgent, I did not jump to accept it and at first my plan was to just incorporate it into his diet in a small way to increase the time between buying the brand I had been using since the original switch. After looking at the ingredients and asking the advice of people who know these things, I decided to make a full switch, over several days and see how he did with just the Nutrience.
The results are in and he is doing great. Since he was already on a good food, there are no dramatic changes. He is not a young dog, so is not racing around or playing more than he was. He remains active, loves our walks, chases shadows and falling leaves and plays with his toys. Above all – his tail is always going.
Chester isn’t concerned about the ingredients – he just knows what he likes and he sure seems to like Nutrience grain free. I like that the ingredients are all from North America and that they have a ‘no bad anything’ promise on their dog food labels. The ingredients are what makes any food what it is and Nutrience by Hagen has great ingredients. On their website at Nutrience Compare they list several brands of grain free foods and compare the ingredients. They even offer a $3.00 off coupon at the site, so you can try the food out for your own dog or cat. They have several foods that are not grain free as well as the grain free one that Chester is now eating.
Although we are still early on the switch to Nutrience, I believe this will be a permanent switch. I will write an update after he has been on this for over a month.
