What is Nutrience SubZero dog and cat food?


9 May 2024



Crafted in pristine British Columbia, Canada, Nutrience SubZero dog and cat food embodies a commitment to uncompromising quality and nutritional excellence. We proudly source our ingredients from the 9.98 million square kilometres of lakes, oceans, and farmland stretching from the Maritimes to the Pacific coast. Fresh Canadian-sourced ingredients, minimally-processed freeze-dried raw nutrition, meticulous quality control processes, and a deep-seated appreciation and love for pets converge to create every bag of Nutrience SubZero – our pinnacle in pet nutrition.

This exceptional collection showcases whole-prey, high-protein formulas, available in three formats:

1. SubZero Classic Recipes:

Inspired by Canada and its rich landscapes, Nutrience SubZero classic recipes are prepared with fresh, never frozen Canadian sources of beef, pork, poultry and wild-caught fish for a quality you can trust. High-protein kibble is combined with freeze-dried raw NUTRIBOOST (see video to learn more) to deliver peak nutrition and provide a foundation for health, vitality and longevity.

2. SubZero Limited Ingredient:

Meticulously crafted for pets with food sensitivities and picky eaters who prefer to keep things… well, simple, these formulas are made with a single source of animal protein and are formulated without common allergens. Designed to make identifying the source of protein in your pet food simple and reduce the risk of food-related allergic reactions. Made in Canada with fresh Canadian ingredients, this kibble and freeze-dried raw pet food prioritizes quality, flavour, and nutrition all while minimizing the ingredients.

3. SubZero Freeze-Dried Raw:

Experience the ultimate in convenience and quality with Nutrience SubZero complete & balanced freeze-dried raw dog and cat food – your go-to solution for providing your pet with an authentic raw food diet. Whether served as a meal, a topper, or a treat, these formulas are versatile. Crafted in Canada with the freshest locally sourced ingredients, this minimally processed whole prey diet boasts an impressive 90% Canadian meat and organ content, complemented by locally sourced fruits and vegetables!

The Benefits Of Feeding Nutrience Subzero:

1. Nutrition-Boosting Raw Food

Nutrience SubZero offers a variety of ways to feed raw food: as a topper, our classic kibble + freeze-dried blend, or 100% complete and balanced freeze-dried diets. Freeze-drying is a dehydration process where food is flash-frozen and introduced to a vacuum. The water content of the food sublimates directly from ice to vapour, bypassing the liquid state. This process ensures minimal nutritional degradation to lock in nutrients and flavour.

2. Trusted Canadian-Sourced Ingredients

Nutrience SubZero diets are proudly crafted in Canada using locally sourced ingredients pet parents can trust. Canada’s diverse landscapes provide an ideal environment for cultivating a variety of wholesome ingredients. Choosing ingredients that are produced as close as possible to our manufacturing facilities ensures they are used at their peak freshness for optimal nutrition. From fresh meats to nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, Canadian-sourced ingredients contribute to our well-balanced and nutritionally sound SubZero diets for cats and dogs.

SubZero classic recipes are inspired by four Canadian regions, each reflecting the origin of its sourced proteins.

Another advantage of using Canadian-sourced ingredients lies in the stringent quality standards upheld by Canadian agricultural practices. The country’s commitment to sustainable farming and strict regulations ensures that our ingredients meet high safety and nutritional standards. Transparency and traceability of our ingredients reflect our commitment to crafting foods of the highest quality that pet parents can feed with trust and confidence.

3. Skin & Coat Health

Maintaining a pet’s skin and coat health is vital for their well-being. Nutrience SubZero diets are formulated with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, essential for skin and coat health. Omega-3, such as EPA and DHA from fish oil, reduces inflammation and promotes a shiny coat, while omega-6 maintains the skin’s protective barrier. Nutrience SubZero diets provide a balanced ratio of these fatty acids, sourced from poultry fat, pork fat, canola oil, and fish oil. Fat is also provided through our fresh sources of meat, poultry and wild-caught fish. These ingredients not only benefit skin and coat health but also support brain function, reduce inflammation, and boost immunity.

4. Immune Health

Just like humans, cats and dogs rely on a well-functioning immune system to defend against infections and diseases. Proper nutrition plays a pivotal role in maintaining their immune health, and this includes providing essential vitamins and minerals. Nutrience SubZero diets are packed with essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, E, A, D, zinc, selenium, and iron, supporting a robust immune system.

5. Gut Health

Gut health plays a critical role in the overall well-being of cats and dogs. Maintaining a healthy gut can improve digestion, boost immunity, and even contribute to a happier and healthier pet. Prebiotics, like inulin, fuel beneficial gut bacteria growth, while probiotics introduce beneficial microbes. Nutrience SubZero combines both to support a balanced gut microbiome, promoting better digestion and immunity for pets.

6. Heart & Eye Health

Taurine is crucial for the health of cats and dogs, especially for heart and eye function. While some animals can produce it internally, cats and certain breeds of dogs cannot generate enough, necessitating its inclusion in their diets. Taurine deficiency can lead to serious heart problems like dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and vision issues such as central retinal degeneration. Recognizing the importance of taurine for heart and eye health, all Nutrience SubZero diets are formulated with it. Meats, poultry and fish are natural sources of taurine, and we make it our priority to ensure that pets are getting enough of this vital nutrient through natural sources and through supplementation when necessary.

7. Joint Health Support

Just like humans, dogs can experience joint issues that can affect their quality of life. Fortunately, there are nutritional compounds like glucosamine and chondroitin found in some of our Nutrience SubZero diets that can help support joint health in active dogs.

Glucosamine is a natural cartilage compound that decreases over time, causing joint discomfort and stiffness. Providing glucosamine through a pet’s diet can offer the building blocks needed to repair and maintain cartilage. Chondroitin, also in cartilage, complements glucosamine, maintaining elasticity and shock absorption, ensuring that your pet’s joints can withstand the rigours of daily activities. Together, glucosamine and chondroitin work synergistically to support joint health. Besides, maintaining a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise is essential for overall well-being and reducing joint stress.

Nutrience SubZero exemplifies our commitment to providing pets with the highest standard of nutrition and care. With a foundation built on Canadian-sourced ingredients, meticulous quality control processes, and a profound understanding of pet health, every bag of Nutrience SubZero represents a commitment to excellence. From supporting skin, coat, and immune health to promoting heart and eye health, our formulas are crafted with the well-being of your pet in mind. By choosing Nutrience SubZero, pet parents can rest assured that they are providing their beloved pets with nutritionally sound meals that nourish their bodies and enrich their lives. Join us in embracing a healthier, happier future for our dogs and cats with Nutrience SubZero.
