Nutrish® Super Premium Food for Dogs Questions

  • What makes Nutrish® so nutritious?
    It's no coincidence the product is called Nutrish®. Every bag of our dry food contains simple, natural ingredients like real meat and wholesome veggies plus vitamins & minerals. There is no poultry by-product meal, artificial flavors or artificial preservatives. It's just wholesome, good-for-your-dog food that tastes great. And like all Nutrish foods, it's 100% complete and balanced nutrition for dogs.
  • Is Rachael Ray Nutrish® made for adult dogs, or can I feed this to my puppy?
    All Rachael Ray Nutrish® formulas, except for Just 6 Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Recipe and Turkey, Brown Rice & Venison Recipe, are formulated to meet AAFCO nutrient profiles for all life stages, so the answer is yes, you can feed most Nutrish® dry food varieties to your puppy. Check the detailed feeding instructions for when you should begin puppies on Nutrish® and how to adjust feeding levels as your puppy grows. And, don't forget to see your vet regularly.
  • How should I transition my dog to Rachael Ray Nutrish®?
    Slowly mix Nutrish® with his other food over a five to ten day period until your dog is solely eating Rachael Ray Nutrish®. Once your dog is only eating Nutrish, keep in mind that feeding guidelines on the bag are a guide. Your dog's individual needs will vary based upon his size, his activity level and even his age. And overfeeding is a common source of digestive upset. Be sure to check your dog's weight and adjust feeding levels to maintain a healthy weight. And, don't forget to see your vet regularly.
  • Is it okay if my cat accidentally eats Nutrish® food for dogs?
    Rachael Ray Nutrish® is formulated for overall health and nutrition. The first ingredient is real meat and Nutrish contains no artificial flavors or preservatives. So if your cat accidentally eats out of the wrong bowl, he'll be okay. Just don't let him make a habit of it.
  • Is there a Rachael Ray Nutrish® weight control formula?
    Yes. Our new Rachael Ray Nutrish® Healthy Weight formula has 25% less fat and 10% fewer calories than Rachael Ray Nutrish® Chicken & Veggies Recipe. The number one ingredient is real turkey, which helps maintain lean muscle mass. It even has the nutrient L-Carnitine, which is known to help turn fat into energy to promote a healthy weight.

  • If I was feeding Rachael Ray Nutrish Healthy Weight Real Turkey & Veggies Recipe, can I now feed the new Turkey, Brown Rice and Venison Recipe?

    Yes! Rachael Ray Nutrish Turkey, Brown Rice and Venison is designed to fulfil the same needs of Rachael Ray Nutrish Healthy Weight Real Turkey & Veggies Recipe – where both are lean recipes containing only 9% fat and designed to help with weight issues. However, we feel that the new product is better designed to help with not only weight issues, but also to better help achieve an overall active and healthy life, all through carefully-selected ingredient additions, such as Venison for feeling full and satisfied and helping maintain healthy energy levels, and Cranberries, which add more fiber and are great sources of essential vitamin and minerals.

    When switching, remember to mix Rachael Ray Nutrish Turkey, Brown Rice and Venison Recipe with his/her previous food over a five to ten day period until your dog is solely eating the new diet. Lastly, we always recommend consulting a vet for any concerns or questions regarding switching food or when putting your pet on a diet.
