Customized for Your Dog's Needs

Whether you have a tiny purebred Chihuahua, a dog with a sensitive tummy or a Great Pyrenees with skin issues, Nature's Recipe has a specialized diet for your pet. Their Special Needs line includes Breed Specific, High Protein, Easy to Digest, Healthy Skin, Joint Health and Healthy Weight recipes to cover every pet's needs.

Just the Right Size

Small breeds have different requirements than larger breeds when it comes to their daily diet. Nature's Recipe has several unique offerings for each size. Small breed meals focus on sustaining your pup's energy with food that's easy to digest. And large breed formulas help maintain strong muscles and joints as well as the proper weight.

High-Protein Recipe

Nature's Recipe Adult food keeps up the energy your dog had as a puppy and powers your active dog's metabolism and alertness. High-quality protein from premium sources like chicken and lamb help maintain your adult dog's lean muscle mass.

A Meal That's Easy to Digest

Any good dog food should be highly digestible and easy on your furry friend's stomach. Easy to Digest is a formula that gives your dog the proper nutrition so his body can absorb a higher percentage of nutrients. This leads to better digestive health and colon function.

Shiny Coats and Healthy Skin

A healthy, strong coat gives dogs protection from the elements and is a good indicator of their overall well-being. Healthy Skin recipes offer high-quality venison meal or vegetable-based proteins, omega-6, linoleic acid, copper and zinc—ingredients that support the skin, coat and immune system.

Mobility and Joint Support

Joint Health uses two premium protein sources loaded with amino acids, along with a dose of vitamin C, for natural joint support. There's a delicious combo of catfish meal and chicken meal in this recipe, and DHA is added to support brain function.

Weight Management

If your dog needs a weight management plan, Healthy Weight can help keep him on track. This formula has L-carnitine to metabolize fat, soluble fiber to make your chowhound feel full, and high-quality protein for leaner muscles.

About Nature's Recipe

Nature's Recipe uses only natural ingredients and specific vitamins and nutrients to keep dogs and cats healthy. Their premium pet foods never use ingredients like beef, corn or wheat that tend to cause food intolerances. They include quality protein and nutrients without artificial flavors or colors because they believe your pet deserves only the best.

Questions & Answers

19 Customer Questions

Is this food completely vegan or is it vegetarian? They are 2 different things. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help!
Answer by ChewyAug 12, 2017
This Nature's Recipe recipe is a vegetarian formula.

This food contains garlic oil and garlic powder. I thought garlic was bad for dogs.
Answer by ChewyFeb 19, 2018
Garlic, when used in small amounts, can help support the immune system, liver and cardiovascular system prevents blood clots and reduces cholesterol/fat build up in the blood and heart. Also, it aides in the fight against bacterial, viral and fungal infections and increases the rate of killing off parasites and is great for palatability.

Why does this contain onion extract when onion is not good for pets?
Answer by ChewyJan 22, 2018
Onions contain chromium, which assists in regulating blood sugar, benefiting pets with diabetes. They've also been proven to reduce inflammation and heal infections.

I just want to make sure this is grain free? I was told it was.
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2017
This food is not Grain-Free but it's free from from any corn, wheat or artificial colors and flavors for a healthy natural food.

Well, at least he likes it

We ordered this food for our 9 year old pit mix who has (largely environmental) allergies. We'd hoped in conjunction with his supplements, cytopoint injections and medicated baths, we could get him a bit more relief. So far, there is no change by adding this food to Simon's "allergy arsenal". We are about done with the bag and have ordered a second to be sure we give it a fair chance. On the plus side, he really seems to like the food and we had zero digestive upset.

Perfect for my chihuahua mix

My 13 lbs chi mix loves this. While it might not come in a smaller kibble size, its still manageable and my chi boy still eats it straight out the bag dry. But I also serve it up soft by pouring warm water over the kibble and letting it soak for a minute or two - he eats it dry but loves it soft.

Heathy Alternative

Our pup was scratching nonstop. This new vegetarian food has cut that down quite a bit. Pup LOVES it!

Great Food for allergic pets.

Natures recipe was recommended to me by my brother. My dog Bonnie has itchy skin and allergies. So far, it seems to be helping her.

It's not their favorite

My husky developed 2 hotspots and the vet recommended a vegetarian diet. . . I switched them both & if you have dogs you understand. They do not love this. Hope it will grow on them.

Love this stuff

This recipe is for my chihuahua who has some liver levels we are working on, the vegetarian formula is just easier on his body per the vet we worked with. He has a beautiful coat and seems to really enjoy this food! I do wish the kibbles came in a small dog size, but my dog seems to make it work *big crunches*.

No more scratching ears and skin

Not available local so I tried different brands but our dog started having itchy ears and smelly skin. Hard to find healthy skin recipe but this is the only one that stop her from scratching her ears and licking her paws within 1 week of use..

Great dog food!

I have used this brand for years and happy the vegetarian formula is back. Great for mild allergies and good on my dogs digestive system. The supply chain has been lacking and it looked like they were going to discontinue it.

Not a fit for us

We switched to this food after the formula for the Royal Canin vegetarian diet was changed and my dog stopped being enthusiastic about it. We tried this food for a month or so and she ultimately just stopped eating. We tried a third food and realized she hated Nature's Recipe - she even avoided this kibble altogether when mixed. Her stool has been more firm and regular not eating this one now too. Sad it didn't work out, it didn't seem palatable for her
