Are you looking for the best quality food for your loved one? At Ruffin’It we only feed our dogs the best, and we would only recommend food to you that we have personally investigated and would feed to our own best friends, in keeping with our motto “your best friend, treated like ours.” One of our favourite brands of dog food is NRG, a high-nutrition dehydrated dog food with a dehydrated Raw option. Our dog Lobo loves it! It is the only food that he will get up for in the morning. He likes to sleep in. He loves it so much that we needed to carry it in our retail store.
NRG Pet Products is a very unique brand for several reasons. They source their ingredients from farms in Canada and the United States, which means that all of their ingredients are table grade (fit to be consumed by humans as well as dogs). Their meat ingredients come from free-range animals and all of their meat products are purchased fresh or flash frozen before they are made into dog food. Their strict inspection practices mean that their food is safe from risky pathogens. Dehydrated dog food also maintains more nutrition than food that is canned or frozen – according to the NRG website, “the nutritional losses during dehydration are 3 to 5% compared to 60 to 80% loss during canning and 40 to 60% when frozen.” When feeding your dog on a regimen of dehydrated food, you simply rehydrate the food with water 20-30 minutes before serving. While many of us would like to make homemade dog food for our best friends, we don’t often have the time. Dehydrated food like the kind NRG offers is a perfect compromise because it is both convenient and delivers optimal nutrition.
At Ruffin’It we carry a large range of NRG products in our retail store and we are confident that our prices on this brand are the best in the city! NRG makes three kinds of dog food. Optimum is for large breeds or canine athletes and contains a mixture of cooked and raw meat, vegetables and oatmeal. The Original line is NRG’s signature form of food and comes in four meat varieties: free range buffalo, chicken, beef or wild salmon. Finally, for those who prefer a raw diet for their dog, The Raw One provides uncooked and dehydrated food for dogs at all life stages. All of NRG’s products are made from whole meats and do not contain meat meal (which is the powder created after meat is rendered for fat – a common ingredient in many dog foods).
We have had such success with this food that we want our best friends at Ruffin’It to try NRG too. If you mention this blog post during the month of February, you will get 15% off NRG products in our retail store!
