Every time The Whole Dog Journal comes out with their annual food reviews, I am sitting down with my copy and going through with with a careful eye. At our house we had been feeding Taste of the Wild for the past year or more, but got worried and discouraged when a recall came out last year. We got even more worried and discouraged when supposedly all their tainted food was removed from store shelves, yet I found myself home with a bag weeks after the recall had been out. It was never fed to my boys, and it was returned quickly. So, this year when I was looking through the high end foods being recommended, one in particular caught my eye. I really liked the sounds of Nutri Source Purevita. I had a few specific things I knew I wanted in my new dog food, and this one had them all and more! First, I wanted a grain free food. Purevita carries three flavors of grain free. That brings me to my next qualification...flavors. Murray tires of a flavor and starts boycotting foods after too long (or I should probably say NOT too long). I have to swicth up flavors regularly to keep him happy and eating, so it was key to have two or three choices. Purevita comes in grain free salmon, turkey and bison. Next, I was careful to look over the guaranteed analysis to check things like protein and fat levels. I didn't want a food too high in protein. My vet recommended around 22%. I was shocked to see how many foods have really high protein! I was no happy to find out I had been feeding foods much too high in protein in the past! Purevita is a touch higher than 22% but I am comfortable mid twenties. Finally, I wanted a food produced here in the USA. I wanted to know where the food I was feeding was coming from to keep my worries at bay. Nutri Source products are made in Perham, Minnesota by a company called Tuffy's Pet Foods
The boys have been enjoying Nutri Source Purevita for a couple months now and seem to be doing very well on it and we didn't have any noticeable digestive issues in our food switch-over. I am very happy so far. I am in no way affiliated with Nutri Source, I just simply wanted to share my experience with a good product I have found. I know if you're anything like me, having some good, high quality, safe foods in the back of your mind is great information to have. I would definitely recommend Nutri Source Purevita.
