Nutrience Original Chicken & Brown Rice formula available in: Puppy, Small Breed, Medium Breed, Large Breed

Strong, Lean Muscles

The first ingredient in Nutrience Original is always high quality chicken to help toy and smaller breed dogs maintain lean muscle mass. We never artifically increase protein levels, so you won't find added meat-by-products or plant glutens used to increase protein levels in our formulas.

Smaller Kibble, Same Great Taste

Small dogs can be fussy when it comes to their food. That’s why we’ve made a smaller, bite-size kibble and 100% money-back guarantee that your dog will love the taste of Nutrience.

Hip & Joint Support

Even small dogs deserve joint and mobility protection. We guarantee specific amounts of Glucosamine and Chondroitin in all our adult formulas to help nutritionally support joints and maintain mobility, especially important as dogs get older.

Healthy Skin & Coat

Your dog’s skin and coat reflects their overall health. Natural sources of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, including salmon oil and flaxseed, help nutritionally support healthy skin and a shiny coat.

Resilient Immune System

Key sources of antioxidants (blueberries, cranberries & carrots along with vitamin C & vitamin E), work together to support your dog's immune system.

Changing to Nutrience

It is always important to gradually transition your dog from one food to another, even when changing formulas within the same brand.

Start with around 25% Nutrience mixed with 75% of their old food on day one. Slowly increase the amount of Nutrience over seven days. Gradually decrease the amount of the old food over the same time.
