As most of my followers know, I am NOT one to push any product whatsoever unless, that is- that it meets my standards. I hate it when someone pushes a product because it is a "Sponsor" or they are getting paid to do it... when in fact, the product is far from the value they claim.

Now, I have fed my dogs many different foods over the years. Some of you may not know i used to work with a Rescue group, and helped rescue, and rehabilitate over one hundred dogs! From Chihuahuas to Great Danes and everything inbetween. Some had allergies, others were just plain picky. But i will tell you this: NONE of the different dog foods i fed my dogs worked for all of them. I had grain free foods for sensitive dogs, high calorie foods for hyper and active dogs, and large breed formulas full of glucosamine for joints and so on. I made sure i was feeding the best possible food for each and every dog and that ended up being very expensive and tiring.
I remeber the day i was given my first lab puppy. Boy was he a treat (and he still is!) we found he has allergies beyond what a normal dog does, he had sensitivity to grains, gluten, and dyes. He has the energy of a 2 year old jacked up with caffine, so he burns a ton of calories especially during hunting season. He also suffers from hair loss from some of his allergies, his coat smelled really bad and oily and he has joint problems. Did i mention waste? that dog needed 4-5 cups of food a day to maintain weight, and he produced a TON of waste because of all the garbage in his food that i had no idea of, because his food "claimed" it was so good for my dog. Foods with a bunch of fillers in it, though it claims to have meat as a 1st ingredient, produces a lot of waste because the body has no use for it, and its just added to save on costs for a lot of dog food brands.
After trying with several different brands of food, i came upon a food that was certified organic and had non GMO foods, with no grains! At first glance, i thought it was too good to be true. I learned about KLN Brands Nutri Source Dog and Cat foods and how much research and quality they put into each and every product. I was hesitant at first, because of all of the failed attempts at trying new foods, but i was quickly assured when i found the cost to be the exact same as the other brand i was feeding.
I was amazed at how fast it worked. And when i say fast, within three weeks of trying the Natural Planet Organics Turkey- Gauge looked WAY better. First off, i fed him HALF as much as i fed with the other food. He Naturally became a healthy weight, his coat was no longer so dull and he even shed less than before. The noticeable "dog odor" started to fade and he has a softer coat with less oil.
Then after a month i started to see improvement overall. He almost seems like a new dog! he No longer looses hair due to allergies, no more bloody itchy ears and skin. In fact, no more medication at all.

No matter what dog food you feed, obviously good excersice and feeding to your dog food's or vetrinarians recommendations are always advised- but if you are experiencing some of the things i did, changing the diet might just do the trick for you. I can promise if you start using Nutri Source's food you will notice a difference!

** all the ingredients you should be looking for in a quality pet food! I like to treat and feed my dogs like family, another reason i choose Nutri Source!


Those of us who consider our pet a member of the family expect more. We take the same amount of care choosing their vet as we do our own doctors; we pay attention to their life cycles and special needs, just as we would with any other member of our family; and the same amount of time and consideration needs to go into planning their meals.
Proper pet nutrition is a dizzying myriad of minerals, vitamins, meats, vegetables, essential fatty acids and antioxidants that, when blended at the proper levels, provide the nutritional base for a healthy pet.
Natural Planet Organics has taken all the guesswork out of feeding your pet, leaving you with the peace of mind that you are making the best choice-the healthy choice-for your pet. This is not just another organic pet food. Our formulas incorporate core organic nutrition, proteinated minerals (which means they are in their natural form and more easily digested), prebiotics, probiotics, the perfect ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and natural antioxidants.
The list of ingredients you'll find on every bag of Natural Planet Organics pet food will look similar to what you might find in your own pantry. Chicken, brown rice, flaxseed, sea salt, carrots, pumpkin, peas, broccoli; if only we could get our kids to eat so well. It really is that good and safe, and healthy. And the best part is your pet will love it- Mine do, and i own one of the finickiest eaters out there!

Within Natural Planet we are focused on providing super premium pet foods that while not totally organic in nature offer organic ingredients and other specifically selected ingredients.

At this time the US Government has not issued definitive testing standards or protocols or a certification regarding GMO status. While we make a concerted and specific effort to source non-gmo products, the testing, standards and certifications that would be needed to label the food as strictly non-gmo in nature are not in place up and down the supply chain.
