By Nature Pet Food Giveaway

The fact that we own a “small” 1oo-pound Newfoundland named Ayla probably comes as no surprise to you. But did you also know that she’s managed to score you an awesome giveaway? Now unfortunately she won’t get to test this food out herself because By Nature is only available to you lucky folks in the United States. But from what I hear, it’s fabulous. And if you treat yourself to homegrown or organic foods, shouldn’t your best friend get the same privilege?

About By Nature

By Nature Pet Foods was founded in 2006 and is a division of The Kent Nutrition Group Pet Division. Based in Muscatine, Iowa, By Nature provides pet food diets of the highest quality, using only ingredients that deliver supreme nutritional benefits to support a pet’s natural defenses against the effects of aging, illness, physical and environmental stress. The company carries a full line of dog and cat food and treats, which are available through pet specialty retailers across the United States.

If your pets enjoy By Nature Pet Foods, you should also be sure to join their frequent buyer program and earn yourself a free bag of pet food after every ten bags you purchase.

By Nature® Pet Foods also has a heart. In 2010, the company donated more than 34,000 pounds of pet food to 10 different animal shelters and nonprofit organizations in the United States. “We believe all animals should have the healthiest nutritional ingredients in their food to ensure they can live healthy and active lives,” says Brand Manager Jean Broders. “Rescue animals need a little extra love; if we can help them stay healthy while waiting for a good home through quality nutrition, we feel like we’ve done our part.”

About By Nature Organics Chicken Formula Pet Food

By Nature Organics pet food contains quality organic ingredients that you can feel happy about your pet ingesting. Organic chicken and chicken meal are at the top of the ingredient lists, in front of rice or other filler, which signifies a premium brand of pet food.

Here’s a few key points about the Organics line:

  • Multiple protein sources: organic chicken, fish & lamb (the latter is only in the dog food)
  • Organic grains & natural fiber
  • Organic fruits, vegetables & natural spices

By Nature Organics Chicken Formula for Cats and Dogs is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles and AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for adult maintenance.

After doing a bit of additional research about the food, I found that DogFoodAdvisor.com “enthusiastically recommends” their dog food, and they seem to look at the food pretty rigorously.

    Our cat, Mooch, is an Everywhere Cat. Everywhere you look she is there…until you want her. Then she is a Nowhere cat. So I guess her best trick is the magical ability to disappear!

    Our dog pumpkin is a professional “fetch” player. Even when the ball goes somewhere she can’t get, she will sit and figure out how to get it. She is a smart puppy! :)

Its very funny watching them play… ;-)
