Frequently Asked Questions

What does Dogswell do to make sure its products are safe?

Our manufacturing facilities are highly regarded and are held to strict quality assurance standards. Dogswell has a rigorous testing program for both raw materials and final products in order to ensure the safety and quality of our food and treats. Third party auditors ensure that all food safety controls and procedures are followed. Our manufacturing facilities are designed to prevent cross-contamination and all of our products are manufactured under strict sanitary conditions. We closely monitor these facilities, and also regularly visit them to ensure the quality and safety of our products. Our co-packing plants operate under HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), a system for managing food safety. Also, U.S.-based Third Party Food Safety Auditors make announced and unannounced visits to the audit all food safety and quality systems in which our facilities have always received high scores.

Where are your products made?

Most Dogswell products are manufactured in the US. Our Nutrisca Cat wet food items are manufactured in Thailand, where we hold these facilities to the same stringent quality standards we maintain at our US facilities. Dogswell sources its ingredients based upon where we find top quality ingredients and a high quality supplier whose facilities and practices meet our safety testing standards.

What does the O2 absorber packet in your treat bags do? What should I do if my pet eats it?

It helps to keep the moisture and oxygen out, which helps keep the product from spoiling. It contains iron, active carbon, salt and water. We have not had any issues in the past with dogs getting sick from accidentally swallowing this packet, but please do monitor your dog for the next 48 hours. If you notice anything different, we advise you consult with a veterinarian. GENERAL

What is Dogswell's mission?

Everything we do is in the pursuit of making dogs as happy as they make us. That means making delicious food and treats that they love today, with pro-active health benefits that will keep them running, jumping, digging, fetching and wagging their tails for many years to come.

What if my pet doesn't like Dogswell food or treats? Do you offer a satisfaction guarantee?

If you are unsatisfied for any reason with your Dogswell product, you can return it to the retailer you purchased it from for a full refund contingent on the store return policy. If the retailer will not accept the return, you can contact us by emailing info@dogswell.com or calling us at (888) 559-8833.

Which of your products are grain-free?

All of our products are grain-free except for Happy Hips and Vitality dry food for dogs, which contain nutritious whole grains and oats.

What is chicken meal?

Chicken meal is a concentrated, highly-digestible protein source left over when chicken is cooked, and all of the fat and water are released. All chicken meal contains some bone. Our chicken meal does not include organs, feathers, heads, feet, or entrails.

What are Glucosamine and Chondroitin?

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are found in our Happy Hips and Senior life stage products to help maintain hip and joint health. Glucosamine is natural compound found in healthy cartilage. It's necessary for the maintenance of connective tissues. Chondroitin is a molecule that's found in cartilage and bone and helps with joint mobility . The Glucosamine and Chondroitin used in Dogswell products are sourced from shellfish.

Are your products Organic?

While all of our products don’t meet the definition of Organic, we always strive to source the highest quality ingredients and produce them in a wholesome way.

Are your products natural?

Our products are natural with added vitamins and minerals. Natural is defined as a feed or ingredient derived solely from plant, animal or mined sources, either in its unprocessed state or having been subjected to physical processing, heat processing, rendering, purification extraction, hydrolysis, enzymolysis or fermentation, but not having been produced by or subject to a chemically synthetic process and not containing any additives or processing aids that are chemically synthetic except in amounts as might occur unavoidably in good manufacturing practices.

What does "raw freeze dried" mean?

Raw pet food and treats comes in two forms: frozen or freeze dried. When a raw product is freeze dried, all of the moisture is removed using pressure instead of a thermal process. In doing so, the product is never cooked and all of the water is removed, making it shelf stable. We take special care to process our raw products in a safe way, using High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) to eliminate harmful bacteria. The result is safe, convenient food and treats with the inherent nutrients of each raw ingredient.

Has the kibble size in your dry food changed recently?

There is a change in-progress to the size and shape of the kibble in our Nutrisca, Happy Hips and Vitality dry food to be a more consistent size, appropriate for all breeds and life stages. You will notice that the new sized kibble is relatively smaller as we feel it is important to have kibble that is suitable for dogs of all sizes. Whether your dog is 3 or 200 lbs, they will be able to enjoy the new rounder, smaller kibble.

How long do your treats stay fresh after opening?

Our resealable bags are designed to lock in freshness and keep air out. To retain freshness and prolong shelf life, try removing all of the air inside the bag, tightly seal it and put it in the refrigerator.

How long does your canned food stay fresh after opening?

Our canned foods can be refrigerated for at least a week after opening.

Can I refrigerate your treats?

Yes, if you wish to do so you can refrigerate our treats. The only treats that require refrigeration after opening are the Artisan Meats Sliders and Deli Slices. How should I store your food and treats? Temperatures below 85°F and above 40°F are best to store our food and treats. It is best not to store pet food products in warm to hot conditions as this will increase the chances of rancidity and vitamin break-down. It is also not good to allow products to ‘freeze’ in cold conditions as this may change the textures of canned products.

How do I interpret the feeding guidelines on your packaging?

Food: Please use our feeding guidelines as a recommendation but consult your veterinarian with questions as activity levels and weight can vary from dog to dog.

Treats: Our treats are intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only. They should not be used as a replacement for a complete and balanced diet, please treat responsibly. You should always observe your pets while they consume treats and provide them with plenty of water.

Is it safe to feed Happy Hips products to a puppy?

We recommend Happy Hips for adult dogs (dogs over 2 years old). Dogs should be finished growing before receiving Glucosamine and Chondroitin on a regular basis. If you have any questions please consult your veterinarian.

  • Great Food

    By on

    Nutrisca is a great quality food with an affordable price. I have fed it to my lab mix for years. We recently had to switch to a food with lower fat content as he is getting into his senior years, but overall I was very pleased with this food. I thank Chewy for carrying this as it is not a highly popular brand. It definitely should be. Thanks Chewy!

    The feed store is having problems keeping Nustrisca on their selves. Friend told me she's uses Chewy.com. Chewy is $8 cheaper per bag and free shipping.

  • Still Searching..

    By on

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with the product. My dog had to have her food switched due to yeast allergies & this is her first ever low-glycemic food. I am sure the taste is not as appetizing as the food she was used to eating & she may not have liked the Salmon flavor, so she just almost refused to eat this unless mixed mostly with another food. I am still in search of a great tasting & appealing grain-free low glycemic dog food for my fur-baby.

  • Manages silica bladder stones

    By on

    I tried many foods trying to manage my senior jack russel terrier mix's food allergies to poultry. After i found out she was also suffering from nearly constant UTI's caused by passing sand grain sized silica stones, I also had to find a food without grains and potatos. I tried acana lamb and apple first, but her skin was still itchy. I tried the nutrisca salmon and chickpea recipe and have been able to keep her allergies and UTI's managed with little medication. She still occasionally passes stones because she still gets treats and also eats things like spilled cat litter off the floor, but it is MUCH BETTER than before starting this food. Vetriscience UT Strength Stat helps flush her when I tried many foods trying to manage my senior jack russel terrier mix's food allergies to poultry.

    My dog has itching runny eyes and even drinks water excessively when he eats other brands we switched to this because its grain,potato, and totally chicken free. His coat is shinny his stool perfect instead of too hard or too soft and he loves it. The pieces are not too big or small so the kibble is easy to eat even by a dog that gorged his food . Plus the price is right. Chewy.com is the best

  • The healthiest food I can find for our dog with skin issues.

    By on

    This is a really great product. Our dog has horrible skin allergies (itchy, loss of fur, red patches, yeast infections etc) and we went through a lot of different foods before we found Nutrisca. This food is all natural and has no added potatoes, grains or tapioca. Our pup loves it and it has made such a difference with his skin.

  • Perfect for dogs with allergies!

    By on

    The Nutrisca brand of dry dog food is exactly what I had been searching for since my lab is allergic to almost everything. The salmon and chickpea recipe is grain free, potato free, and contains absolutely NO chicken, chicken by-products, chicken fat, or chicken meal. The salmon provides the oils necessary for a thick, shiny, beautiful coat. No more bare spots, itching, or skin odors. PERFECT! And best of all, both of my labs love the taste.

  • Digestion better

    By on

    So far, so good. After switching from another reputable, more expensive brand after reading about tapioca as a filler- I decided to try Nutrisca(salmon/chickpea). One month later more solid poo, less gas & happier dog.

  • Good quality natural food

    By on

    This is a good quality food that is not over proteined (hot). No fillers. My dog is a high allergiy breed that has no trouble with this food. Other so called healthy brands make his hair fall out and cause yeast infections. We are into his second bag and we are loving the results. Better quality means less amount at feedings, which also saves money. Plus, He really likes it.
