Nutrience | Ingredients – Pet Food Made with Purpose

Taking Good food

to Great

Sourcing ingredients from world class Canadian and US growers is a priority in all of our foods. Fruits, vegetables and botanicals harvested at their peak combined with top of the line meat and fish proteins are at the core of our product.

Add just the right amounts of healthy fats, low-glycemic carbohydrates and nutritional supplements and a good food is made great.

That great food is Nutrience.

Meat and Fish Proteins

Whether it’s fresh turkey, cage-free chicken, whole egg, Atlantic herring or any of the many other high grade animal and fish proteins we use, they will always be the very best that can be sourced.

Essential Healthy Fats

Healthy fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, are principle ingredients of every Nutrience formula. You can both see and feel the difference when feeding foods of superior value.

  • Fish & salmon oil

    Coldwater fish such as salmon and herring contain some of the highest levels of DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids. They can improve your pet's skin and coat, reduce inflammation, regulate the immune system, improve cognitive function and assist in prenatal development.

  • Flaxseed

    These tiny seeds are packed with nutritional components. They're a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and high in soluble and insoluble fiber.

  • Coconut Oil

    Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a medium chain triglyceride (MCT), that elevates the metabolism, provides a higher level of energy and vitality, protects from illness, and speeds healing. Coconut oil also improves skin and coat conditioning, enhances digestion, and reduces allergic reactions.

Protective Antioxidants

wholesome fruits & vegetables

  • Pumpkin, butternut squash, carrots, spinach & broccoli:

    Their bright colors alone are indicative of the presence of powerhouse nutrient beta-carotene. It boosts the immune system, guards against illness, promotes cardiovascular health and good vision. Moreover, they contain anti-inflammatory properties, cancer-fighting properties and are a good source of dietary fiber.

  • Apples & pears:

    Apples and pears provide sources of pectin (soluble fiber) to aid digestion and are rich in potassium, helping to maintain heart and muscle strength.

  • Blueberries, cranberries & pomegranates:

    Known as "superfruits", pomegranates, blueberries and cranberries are renowned for their numerous protective anti-aging and metabolism boosting effects. These include fighting heart disease, memory loss, cancer, urinary tract infections and obesity.

Nature’s Remedies


Botanicals have been valued for their medicinal and therapeutic properties throughout known history. We’ve been including them in our formulas for over 15 years for their power to naturally strengthen, heal and cleanse the body.

  • Turmeric:

    Promotes circulation and decreases inflammation.

    Licorice Root:

    Stimulates the immune system and is a fast-acting anti-inflammatory that can be specifically useful for pets with arthritis.

  • Ginger, Fennel & Peppermint:

    Support the entire digestive system.

    Juniper Berries:

    Promote urinary tract health, lower blood glucose levels, strengthen kidney function and may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

The Better Choice

low-glycemic carbohydrates

The low-glycemic carbohydrates in Nutrience foods may lower the risk of diabetes and help prevent obesity.

By limiting carbs to those with a lower glycemic index where possible (lower or slower release of glucose into the bloodstream), the pressure on the cells to produce insulin is reduced – as is the risk of diabetes.

We include staples such as sweet potatoes, steel-cut oats, lentils, and green peas, to be not only delicious, healthy ingredients, but to contribute to a longer and healthier life for your pet.

going above and beyond

Nutritional Supplements

Nutritional supplements are beneficial to humans and pets alike. In addition to ensuring that our formulas contain all the vitamins, minerals and amino acids our pets require we’ve also added prebiotics, probiotics, glucosamine and chondroitin.

While prebiotics and probiotics work together to support a healthy digestive system, glucosamine and chondroitin are incorporated into our formulas to help maintain hip and joint health.
