Chewy.com review: Nulo canned food


Our second review item this month is Nulo canned food. We received the chicken & herring flavor, but there are several other flavors available.

We had not heard of this brand before, so I did some research on the company and read a number of reviews on Chewy's website.

Pros: No grains, wheat, by-products, corn, carrageenan, soy, high protein formula, made in Texas by an American company

Cons: All but two of the formulas contain fish, contains odd ingredients like tomato, kelp, yucca

I read a review on Chewy where the customer posted that the ingredient list had changed (for the worse, in this person's opinion), by adding pea fiber and replacing turkey, the second ingredient, with chicken broth. This was posted in October 2016 and when I checked the manufacturer's website, it had the "old" list of ingredients. I'm not sure if it was never updated, or if the manufacturer went back to the original ingredient list. I found it interesting, and if pea fiber is something you don't want in your food, check the label or contact the manufacturer.



The food is a pate, and had almost no smell. Ringo became immediately interested once I put the can in the box.
Mom, I want some!
Ringo insisted on eating next to some friends. He liked the food.

Lucy liked it too.

Now Benny liking it was a nice surprise. I fully expected him to reject it, but he ate all that I gave him. And Lucy was ready to butt in if he didn't.

The cats all liked the food, and given the good ingredients, it is another solid choice to feed the cats. We plan to try some of the other flavors eventually

*Disclaimer: We were given some food in exchange for an honest review. The opinions here are our own.

Three out of three. Sounds like a keeper!

Kelp is given for trace minerals and iodine and yucca for improved stools. I believe it is supposed to reduce odor. I still haven't figured out why they put nightshades (tomato) in it though..

interesting. we would love to hear some of the discussions they have on adding "weird" ingredients though :)

Have not heard of this brand before. Tomato...really?

I'm glad everybody liked it! Boodie and I like Nulo... but Binga doesn't (she's gotten picky in her dotage) so it's not on our regular roster of foods at the moment.

Glad it was a hit. We have never tried this kind. Nice review.

Lucy is a good nurse

My surgery went as expected and I'm doing ok. Lucy has been on nurse duty and is taking the job very seriously.
