Nutrience Grain Free for Small Breed – Turkey, Chicken & Herring – 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs)
Made in Canada with fresh never frozen animal ingredients, Nutrience Grain Free closely mimics a carnivore’s ancestral diet.

It’s a great substitute for pets with certain food sensitivities. It’s an excellent choice for pets with a particularly active lifestyle or for pet parents who simply prefer to feed their pets a grain free diet.

Feeding Recommendations :
All dogs aren’t created equal. Your dog may require more or less food depending on age, activity level and environment. Simply start with our recommendations, adjust as needed and make sure to always have fresh water available.
Transitioning to Nutrience :
It is important to gradually transition your dog from one food to another. Start with a proportion of 25% Nutrience to 75% old food. Slowly change the proportions over the next 5 to 7 days by gradually increasing the amount of Nutrience and decreasing the amount of the old food.
