Description

Let's face it. We all know that cats are picky. But you can't really fault them for it. They only want the best. What your cat's craving is a low glycemic diet rich in fish, not potatoes, corn or other grains that your little carnivore connoisseur wasn't built to eat. With Nutrisca, nothing will stand in the way of your little foodie and her food.

Using an 8 oz measuring cup

The amount to feed will vary based upon age, activity level, breed, size, and climate/temperature. Adjust feeding rate as needed so that your cat maintains a proper weight. Fresh water should be available at all times, and bowls should be cleaned daily.

Kittens will begin to eat small amounts of dry food at 3 - 4 weeks of age. It is best to offer both dry NUTRISCA and NUTRISCA moistened with warm water at this time. After weaning (approximately 8 weeks of age), kittens will normally free feed on dry food. If moistened food is desired, use 1 part warm water blended with 3 parts NUTRISCA®. Moistened food should be changed at least twice daily in order to prevent spoilage.

Reproducing females should be offered 2 - 4 times the amounts shown in the chart during gestation and lactation.

Transition Instructions

When switching to a new dry or canned food, there is sometimes an assimilation period where a dog may experience a change in stool quality for a small period of time until he/she adjusts.

Which of your products are grain-free?

All of our products are grain-free except for Happy Hips and Vitality dry food for dog's, 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. Its necessary for the maintenance of connective tissues. Chondroitin is a molecule thats found in cartilage and bone and helps with joint mobility .

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 2 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 dog's 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 bag's 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 pet's 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 dog's (dog's over 2 years old). Dog's should be finished growing before receiving Glucosamine and Chondroitin on a regular basis. If you have any questions please consult your veterinarian.

    Finicky Kitties

    By on

    I have 9 "finicky kitties"and I am always looking for a product that they will eat without begging for moist food. I will give this food an okay, but I will not buy again. My kitties will eat this product, but I will continue to shop for a dry food that they actually like.

    Disappointed

    By on

    I ordered Nutrisca last month (it was newly offered by Chewy)as it looked like a good quality food for my cats. After one month of trying it, it sits in the bottom of their bowl; they literally refuse to eat it. Now, I have 5 cats. 5 totally NON-FUSSY cats. Who refuse to eat this???? I gave it a good try, but would not recommend this food. (Note: the Nutrisca is very dry looking and crumbly.) I am giving it to a friend who has barn cats and we shall see if they eat it.

    All cats rejected in a multi-cat home

    By on

    I'm sure this is healthy, or at least reasonably sure. The drawback is that my cats won't touch it. I have several felines in our family. None of our furballs found this enticing or edible even in a pinch. I would not buy this brand again.

    My cats didn’t like it

    By on

    This smells delicious to me, but my cats didn’t like it, at all, which is very unfortunate. Not sure why. If you want to try this for your cat(s), try ordering a small bag and see if your cat(s) likes it.

    Excellent food

    By on

    I feed this non-gmo grainfree food so my cats stay healthy and don’t get sick when older. In my older dog, their dog food was the one he didn’t throw up. Non-gmo oats brought my horse back to health. Go non-gmo!

    Really does not contain grain

    By on

    This is one of the few "grain-free" cat foods I've found that really does not contain grain. Our cat has a severe grain allergy and she has gotten sick from a good many "grain-free" cat foods that turned out to contain grain. But she eats this one just fine. Wish other companies would follow Nutrisca's model.
