What Is Rachael Ray Nutrish?

For 10 years, Nutrish has set out to nourish and nurture pets everywhere. In order to provide pets with the best, every Rachael Ray Nutrish recipe uses carefully selected ingredients like meat, fish, and veggies to create irresistible food for your best friend. Nutrish also has many specialty recipes (Just 6, Zero Grain, Dish, Peak) that are either grain free or contain no corn, wheat, or soy ingredients, as some dogs have sensitivities to these ingredients which may cause skin irritation and digestive issues. You also won't find any artificial fillers, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, or poultry by-product meal. Since every pet has different dietary needs, check with your vet to see what food options are best.

And did we mention? A portion of the proceeds from every sale of Nutrish goes to the Rachael Ray Foundation, which helps animals in need across the country. (And as of this writing, more than $27 million has been donated to animal charities and other organizations that do good for animals!)

What Nutrish Dog Food Varieties Are Available? Which Ones Aid in Growth and Development?

Nutrish food for dogs gives your furry friend the nutritional benefits they need, served up in a delicious helping. Every dry food recipe is formulated with ingredients like fish oil, sunflower oil, or poultry fat which help support a healthy skin and coat. The dry food also has vitamins and minerals to give your dog a well-rounded barrier of protection and support as they age. Nutrish's wet food recipes are also formulated with the vitamins and minerals dogs need for every stage of life and may be a good option for dogs with sensitive or missing teeth. You can serve your dog wet or dry food exclusively, but many pet parents like to complement a primarily dry food diet with wet food recipes. Below is a brief overview of the current Nutrish dog food recipes so you can decide what's best for your pet. As always, double-check with your veterinarian before making changes to your dog's diet.

Rachael Ray Nutrish Super Premium Recipes
The Rachael Ray Nutrish Super Premium product line offers different recipes that include delicious real ingredients like peas, carrots, and cranberries—and real meat is always the number-one ingredient. Looking for dog food to help promote a healthy weight? Try the Turkey, Brown Rice & Venison Recipe. With lean, U.S. farm-raised turkey as the first ingredient and L-Carnitine (a naturally occurring amino acid), this recipe helps support a healthy weight and metabolism for adult dogs.

Rachael Ray Nutrish Bright Puppy Real Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe
In order to develop properly, puppies require a higher protein and fat level than adult dogs, plus fatty acids like DHA. Rachael Ray Nutrish Bright Puppy is formulated with real U.S. farm-raised chicken to support strong muscles and a healthy heart. This recipe also contains fish meal, a natural source of DHA, which aids brain development and healthy vision. To top it off, the brown rice, carrots, and peas help support healthy digestion while the cranberries contain antioxidants to help support a healthy immune system.

Rachael Ray Nutrish Just 6®
Like humans, some dogs can develop food or digestive sensitivities. To accommodate these needs, Rachael Ray Nutrish Just 6 offers limited-ingredient recipes for dogs that don't contain corn, wheat, or soy ingredients (and one is even a grain-free recipe!). As the name suggests, Just 6 recipes are made from six easily digestible, natural ingredients, with added vitamins and minerals to support your pet's health. Available in two different recipes, Just 6 includes real lamb meal or turkey meal and other wholesome ingredients like peas and brown rice—only the best for your furry friend!

Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain
The Zero Grain recipes may be more allergy-friendly for dogs with food sensitivities, as they are free from grain, gluten, or filler ingredients. Zero Grain gives your dog real U.S. farm-raised meat or real salmon and zero poultry by-product meal. Choose from four different recipes and see what your dog likes best.

Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak™
Currently the newest addition to Nutrish's specialty dog food, Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak contains 30 percent high-quality protein, with real U.S. farm-raised meat as the number-one ingredient and nutrient-dense proteins like venison, duck, and quail. It also boasts zero grain, gluten, and filler ingredients. These recipes satisfy your dog's instinctual appetite so they can focus on more important things—like playing fetch and reminding you it's time for their daily walk.

Rachael Ray Nutrish Dish
Ever wish you could feed your dog some of the delicious Rachael Ray recipes you whip up for yourself? Now you can! The Rachael Ray Nutrish Dish recipes were inspired by Rachael's kitchen, containing whole ingredients like real pieces of meat, fruit, and veggies. We can't speak for your dog, but we're pretty sure they'll love the real, visible, wholesome ingredients just as much as you do.

How Do I Switch My Dog's Food to Rachael Ray Nutrish?

Changing your dog's diet should be a slow and gradual process. Check out the Nutrish ingredient glossary to see what's included in each recipe and how it contributes to your pet's overall health. And if you have a picky eater on your hands, there are samples and coupons available so your dog can try different varieties before you decide which recipe is right for your best friend. Once you've chosen your preferred recipe, slowly mix it in with your dog's current food to help them acclimate. This process should take five to 10 days, gradually adding more and more of the new food until your dog is solely eating the new Rachael Ray Nutrish recipe.
