Feeding Charlie @Nutrience_ Food #NutriencePets

This post is sponsored by Nutrience and the Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the Nutrience, but Our Whiskey Lullaby only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Nutrience is not responsible for the content of this article.



Two months ago we shared that we adopted a new puppy for Mary. After all, since I have lots of birds, it wasn't fair that she didn't have a pet of her own. And she's been loving small dogs for a long time now. So one night we decided to let her go pick one of her own. 

And that's pretty much how we ended up with Charlie. But bringing him home was no easy task. First off, he decided that my birds were good looking chew toys. He even plucked the feathers out of one's rear! And then there was the issue that he still wasn't potty trained. But one that really bothered me was that he hated his food. The food that he had been given smelled awful and he wouldn't even go near it when I would give it to him. But I knew it wasn't because he wasn't hungry because I would give him wet food and he would gobble it all up. So after lots of research, I decided to switch his dog food. 


Charlie was also getting vitamins daily but he was constantly throwing up too. We noticed he had a very fragile stomach so the food we ended up choosing for him was Nutrience Grain Free. Grain free food is a great way to go for many dogs because lots of dogs are prone to grain allergies just like humans. So I decided it was better to be safe than sorry. Many people don't realize that animals can get horrible allergies just like humans. My dog growing up ended up getting a terrible allergy to grass and would break out in a rash every time he went outside!


We weren't sure what to expect when we first introduced Charlie to Nutrience but he went at it pretty quick! I really like Nutrience for him because it's full of fruits, vegetables and botanicals harvested at their peak combined with top of the line meat and fish proteins. Plus they have the "No Bad Anything" promise which makes me know that he's getting food that is truly good for him.

Nutrience food is now available on Amazon.com so I know I'll be ordering it often.

I have just discovered your blog Katherine and I fell in love with all your birds. I am a bird lover myself and I am suffering that at my new place I can't bring any of them - they are all back home with my parents. Charlies looks very cute, I hope he will adapt to his new friends and I hope this new food brand will help him grow strong.
Hugs,
Rally

Grain free is actually really great for animals. This is great stuff. Thanks for sharing.

It's amazing how quickly tasty food gets eaten up, isn't it? Growing up, the dog I had never went nuts for any food other than the prescription canned food he ended up on for bladder issues. But when I bring home a bag of food for Trixie--a grain free premium brand as well--she goes CRAZY!

I've had a few dogs with grain allergies- thankfully we caught it early on and got them switched to a quality food. I'll have to let my girlfriend know about this for her dog!

My dog has a sensitivity to wheat. She coughs and chokes anytime she eats it. We've been buying a specialty food but I hate going in to the pet store (always feel sorry for the adoptable pets); I buy big bags of it. How convenient that yours is on Amazon!

It looks like your puppy is really enjoying the Nutrience. It's great that it's grain free.

Ellen said...

What a little cutie. He certainly seems to like it!

Katherine Bartlett said...

Thanks awesome Suburban!

Great Jenna!

Katherine Bartlett said...

Yes Dede!

We are actually waiting for Eleanor (our corgi) to finish up her Blue Buffalo and are making the switch to grain free! We're hoping she likes it as it is going to be so much better for her! = ]

We also do grain free foods. For our very allergenic foster dog, we ended up feeding him cooked veggies, sweet potatoes, coconut oil, and chicken.

I have been considering switching to grain free food. Thanks for the review
