Whenever our friends at Nature’s Logic offer a guest post on a topic related to dog food, we see a spike in the number of related comments and discussions on the subject — not just on this blog, which receives relatively few comments, but also on Facebook and occasionally via email. If your level of awareness about what’s going into your dog’s mouth has been raised over the past few years, that’s a good thing.
One great side benefit of offering a rotation diet is that you don’t risk gastric upset (or worse) by offering different formulas to your dogs. If you’ve fed nothing but chicken and the only formula left on the shelf is beef, you might worry whether you’ll need to get out the dog shampoo and the floor cleaner after mealtime. In addition, different meats, types of poultry, and fish each have different compositions of amino acids as well as different levels of fats, vitamins, and minerals. By mixing or interchanging different protein sources, pets receive the nutritional benefits of all these essential nutrients. I like to think that our Dog Food Diary adventures have helped my dogs get a better nutritional deal out of dinnertime.
Nature’s Logic, keeping the benefits of rotation in mind, now offers a Sardine-based canned formula in response to requests by customers for foods with more fish. Sardines are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which promote healthy skin and coat (among other benefits). In addition, sardine is a very palatable flavor for dogs and a helpful alternative for dogs sensitive to beef or chicken.
Nature’s Logic foods are nutrient dense, high in animal protein, and free of gluten and other common allergens, including corn, wheat, rice, soy, tapioca, or potato. All the company’s diets are made with whole foods and 100% natural ingredients. They contain no chemically-synthesized added vitamins and minerals that are found in other pet foods. All nutrients in Nature’s Logic foods come from whole foods and 100% natural ingredients, with nothing man-made.
