What is being said about Nature's Select- quotes from right here in Northern Colorado!
What is a healthy dog food?
What dog food has no by products?
It depends on the dog. Our experience indicates that if an animal is showing allergic symptoms chicken is often the offending protein source. However, most animals are able to tolerate it and it is an excellent source of protein. It is abundant and cost effective. It has many benefits such as glucosamine, which naturally occurs as a component. Chicken is almost always just fine to offer your dog. If not, we offer several other viable and tasty options.
Not all meals are created equal. In the case of Nature’s Select, we only use refrigerated U.S. and New Zealand sourced meats. It’s the same quality as you would buy in the store for yourself. It is taken off the bone, cooked, and ground into a meat meal. The only way to achieve the high protein levels in pet feed is to use a concentrated protein source such as a meal. Whole chicken, for example, has too high of water content to achieve these results.
You can test this for yourself. Please read the analysis on a canned dog food. You will see the protein level will rarely exceed 10% due to high water content. Nature's Select dry food protein levels vary from 22 to 32%, depending on the goal and purpose of each formulation.
Nature's Select has been on the highly-acclaimed Whole Dog Journal Editor's Choice List consistently as well as earning The Dog Food Advisor's highest five-star rating year after year. Our grain-free and dry dog foods are singled out for their healthy mix of natural ingredients. Nature's Select has a total of nine different dry dog food recipes, three canned food varieties for dogs, as well as our signature dry food for cats.

Holistic food is preferred because it takes care of the whole dog, it’s complete nutrition. We have a nutritionist on staff that is highly regarded, and our foods are formulated for the most recently discovered canine requirements. Our foods continue to evolve and improve. After reformulation in 2013, our ingredient statement allowed flexibility for improvement. New for 2019, another product-line wide reformulation will keep Nature's Select on the cutting edge of nutritional needs. The marketplace of pet foods has come a long way since 1949 when dry dog food was first offered. However, many foods continue to offer a mixture of ground corn and gravy, meat and bone meals, and "non-specific" animal fats. Yuck! The resultant foods may contribute to myriad health concerns- excess weight, high blood sugar levels, arthritic joints, fatty tumors, cloudy eyes, poor digestive and dental health and even cancer.
Another recent addition to the Nature’s Select pet food line are 3 flavors of canned canine foods. We also offer Healthy Instinct cat food, premium quality for only a little over a dollar per 6oz. can. Nature’s Select is now offering superior ingredients at a lower price than our competitors. This is a bargain compared to 3.3 oz cans at nominally 80 cents each with questionable ingredients.
We are proud to say that our Nature’s Select Products are made right here in the USA of US sourced ingredients. Our only imported ingredient is New Zealand lamb. Support your locally owned and operated Nature's Select distributor!

All Nature’s Select foods exclude animal by products, however, it is conceivable that by products can offer valid nutrition. They are typically the smooth muscle portions of an animal such as intestines, as well as tendons, ligaments, and other less desirable portions. These portions may actually include beneficial nutrition, but we choose to exclude them from Nature's Select.
Our foods have always been free of corn, wheat and soy.

Is holistic food good for dogs?
Nature's Select offers a single fish and chicken based formula meeting the whole needs of your cat, from kitten to senior. We believe, contrary to many of the foods offered in the marketplace, that a single proper diet results in:
"When I started feeding my cat this food, he no longer leaves these owl pellets all over the house (cough, cough, YAACK), he sheds less, and he used to only relate to me- now he is everyone’s friend. He is far more docile too."
Our feline food is the best value in our product line. You get a 15lb bag of fresh quality food which is enough supply for 4 to 5 months for a single cat- all for only a little over $30.
Nature’s Select has over 25 years of experience bringing holistic US sourced foods to pet owner’s homes like yours.
