In her role as a #ChewyInfluencer, Bailey was asked to review Nulo Freestyle Grain-Free Dog Food. I was not familiar with the brand, but when I read about the company’s commitment to provide pets with lean quality proteins that are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, amino acids and how Nulo adds their own patented probiotics to each recipe, I was excited for Bailey to try it.
I also had an ulterior motive for Bailey reviewing the product. I hoped it would get my puppy out of the slump she has been in since losing her best buddy, Cody, late last month. You see Bailey hasn’t been herself and her eating habits have changed. She has never been a dog who is motivated by food, but for the past three weeks she has skipped several meals and passed over some of her favorite treats.
When the Chewy.com box arrived at our door with the bag of Nulo Freestyle in the salmon and pea recipe, both Bailey and I were excited. That evening I added a handful of Nulo Freestyle to Bailey’s current kibble. Because Nulo is a complete meal, I didn’t want to change to the new food all at once and risk causing a digestive problem for Bailey.
The Taste Test
Bailey ate the Nulo Freestyle Grain-Free Dog Food along with her typical food and I have been adding larger amounts to her bowl for every breakfast and dinner. She likes the taste and texture of the food, but I am still not able to get her to eat “anything” with the same gusto she had a few weeks ago.
I am a bit worried that we might need to make an appointment to see the veterinarian or that my fussing over her after Cody’s passing has turned her into a poor eater. Nevertheless, when Bailey decides to eat, she has enjoyed her Nulo food.
What We Learned About Nulo
Nulo is passionate about pet nutrition and that our fur kids live active and healthy lifestyles. The Austin, TX based company believes every pet is an athlete who was meant to run, jump and play. Their philosophy got the attention of Ironman competitors who have now teamed up with Nulo to feed their dogs Freestyle Grain-Free Dog Food.
The recipes come in Salmon & Pea, Turkey & Sweet Potato, Trout & Sweet Potato and there is a Puppy formula. Each recipe is 80% animal-based protein which means there are more amino acids to fuel lean muscles. In addition, the ingredients have one the lowest glycemic indexes on the market. Foods with rice, white potato or tapioca are high on the glycemic chart and can cause elevated levels of insulin that could possibly lead to early diabetes in your pet.
Their patented BC30 Probiotics is also included in each recipe. The live bacteria helps your dog have a healthy digestive tract and immune system while providing better mineral absorption.
