A review on: Nulo's Freestyle Grain-Free Salmon & Turkey Recipe With Strawberries Freeze-Dried Raw Dog Food
Fur friends, do your fur kids have a better-balanced diet than you do? Do they visit the groomers more times in a year than you're allowed to treat yourself to a haircut and color? Do you find yourself chewing on a chalky Flinstone vitamin while they have a plethora of powder, supplements, oils, and pills to add vitality, nutrition and health benefits to their little bodies and huge hearts? Or perhaps it's just me...
Coming at you this month is just about the fanciest (and priciest) food I do believe Miss Bebe and Jolie have ever had their pawsitively prissy palettes exposed to. Imagine a grain free salmon and turkey blend with strawberries, that's freeze-dried and raw?
This item describes itself as raw and prey-inspired nutrition.The Nulo Freestyle Grain-Free Salmon & Turkey Recipe With Strawberries Freeze-Dried Raw Dog Food is at first glance packed with a whopping containing 83% salmon and turkey, organs and bone plus dried egg yolks, broccoli and kale. I really didn't think my dogs were going to like this as they are notoriously fussy eaters. Also in the food is a probiotic that I've never heard of called GanedenBC30. It claims to that supports your dog's digestive and immune health with every bite. In addition, it is made with no corn, wheat, soy, artificial preservatives, colors or flavorings, which really doesn't come as a surprise given the price point and other features of this fancy food.
My dogs did enjoy this food but I was shocked to notice how small the bag was. It was only 13 ounces, which isn't even a pound of food. I'm not one to be cheap with my dogs, and if you've followed me for a long time you know just exactly how much money I spend on them. However, to spend $34 on 13 ounces of food seems ludicrous to me. I don't see how anyone could afford that. My dogs are tiny and this bag of food didn't even last them the whole week, meaning that realistically I would need to spend around $200 a month on food for them both. I cannot even imagine what it would cost you if your dog weighed more than 5lbs. The benefits are clearly there, but they also exist in much more cost efficient brands such as Solid Gold and Blue Buffalo, two of our absolutely most favorite brands. The food itself looks like puffy Cheetos and most of the bag is crumbs and dust, which I didn't mind too terribly since my dogs are missing most of their teeth and just licked it up. I am glad that my dogs got to enjoy this incredibly posh food for a few days, however, at the price point, I couldn't recommend it.
I received these goodies free of charge from Chewy.com in an exchange for my honest review.
