Rachael Ray Nutrish Natural Variety Pack Wet Dog Food Review

Rachael Ray Nutrish Natural Variety Pack Wet Dog Food Review

Our Recommendation

Rachael Ray Nutrish Natural Variety Pack wet dog food has a lot to offer pet parents. The natural ingredients are top quality and there are no artificial colors or flavors. Scout likes that all the formulas are meat and egg based.

  • No corn, wheat, soy, or other grains.
  • No by-products or digest.
  • Real meats and broths from lamb, chicken, and beef.
  • Less expensive than prescription dog foods.
  • Excellent choice for dogs with digestive issues or allergies.
  • Fish oil helps provide important fatty acids for healthy skin and coat.

Like all wet dog foods, you are getting a high moisture content in this food. The simple mixes of meats and vegetables make this a good alternative for those that want to feed a cooked diet but don’t have the time. It is definitely a dog food for those with small to medium sized dogs. Each tub is only 8 ounces. For those that have toy sized dogs, the tubs are resealable so you can stick them in the fridge to eliminate waste.  Scout recommends this food for small to medium dogs that are picky eaters or that have digestive issues with other foods.

Each year the AAFCO publishes two sets of nutritional minimum standards for dog food intended to help specify if a food is suitable for:

1. Dogs in the growth & reproduction phases of life
2. Adult dogs maintaining a healthy weight and activity level

Feeding Amounts

Depending on your dog’s size and activity level, they may need more or less food in their daily feeding amounts.

See below to determine how much food your dog needs. After opening, refrigerate and use within 3 days:

Adult Dogs: Feed one 8 oz container per 8 lbs of body weight daily depending upon your dog’s activity level.

Puppies: Growing puppies need up to twice as much food per pound of body weight as adults.

Feeding for Reproduction: Food consumption varies during gestation. Feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s ideal condition. Food intake may double or triple during lactation.

Transition Instructions

A gradual transition over the course of ten days is recommended. Gradually replace some of your pet’s old brand with some of the new Rachel Ray brand every day. Dogs that do not have a tendency towards a sensitive stomach can be transitioned over five to seven days.

The Bottom Line

Scout would have no problem trusting this dog food to provide a balanced and quality diet for any dog. The ingredients are well-sourced and simple. No grains means you are getting a meat and veggie based diet that is good for your dog. It is unfortunate that the cost makes it prohibitive for those with larger dogs but that is pretty much the case with any wet pack dog food. For those that like to be able to allow several meal times a day for their dog, the resealable containers are great.
