Keeping your pet cool during the summer is essential. Cats, dogs, rabbits and birds—in other words, virtually all domesticated animals—are vulnerable to the ill effects of excessive heat. At Chico, our animal specialists are highly knowledgeable of the various ways to prevent heat stroke and dehydration in pets. Read on for our top five tips.
Nutrience Grain Free Pork, Lamb & Venison Formula – 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. Multiple sources of meat are combined with healthy fats, fruits, vegetables and botanicals while grains are replaced with low-glycemic sweet potatoes and lentils*.
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.
Key Features :

These include pumpkin, butternut squash, carrots, spinach, broccoli, apples, blueberries, cranberries, pomegranate, juniper berry extract, ginger, fennel, chamomile, peppermint leaf, licorice root and turmeric. Coconut oil & marine source omega-3: Coconut oil (a medium-chain triglyceride) is a rich source of energy and prized for its wealth of nutritional benefits, while salmon oil, our primary source of omega-3 fatty acids, helps maintain a healthy skin and coat. Nutritional supplements: Powerful prebiotics and probiotics provide a greater absorption of nutrients and help maintain a healthy digestive tract, while glucosamine and chondroitin support hip & joint health.
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.
