This recipe is a duck-based dog food that contains many of the beneficial nutrients that red meat contains, but without as much saturated fat. Duck meat is known to boost the immune system because it has a healthy amount of selenium, which is an important antioxidant. It helps to fight inflammation and can also aid in the prevention of cell damage. Selenium is good for thyroid health. The omega 3 and 6 fatty acids found in duck meat are essential for normal physiological function. They also support their cell membrane structure and cell function. Omega fatty acids help growth, immune function, and to maintain healthy skin and a shiny coat.
This duck dry dog food contains natural brewers yeast. Brewer's yeast contains natural antioxidants, and it promotes shiny hair, healthy skin, and eyes and also supports liver function. Brewer's yeast has vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid and biotin). These are known to reduce anxiety in dogs. Brewers yeast is also high in selenium, chromium, potassium, iron, magnesium and zinc. These are all excellent for a variety of cell and organ functions, plus good for overall health. Brewers yeast in dog food is also known to help repel fleas and ticks.
Biotin is great for nails, skin, hair, liver and nervous system health. It is also good for the brain and boosts energy levels helping mood. It helps to metabolise fats, carbohydrates and protein, which means its an excellent choice of low-fat dog food for dogs with EPI, pancreatic problems, and other gastrointestinal issues.
Linseed (also known as flaxseed) contains both omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids that help to keep your dogs skin healthy and coat shiny. These alpha-linolenic acids are also known to boost the immune system and are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and other skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis (eczema in humans). Additionally, linseed is helpful to your dogs gastrointestinal health, and the fibre can help with constipation.

Wallace is a rescue dog being cared for by German Shepherd Rescue Scotland. He came into rescue at 10 months old being diagnosed with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) at 6 months old. I was asked to be his foster carer, I knew before Wallace arrived that I was going to have to do my research and learn about EPI and fast.
I gave him a week to settle in before changing anything but it was very clear the the food he was eating wasn't the right food. Most EPI dogs need a grain-free food. I searched on the web and found the Nutrix website, their Duck and Potato food sounded perfect so I ordered some up. The results were instant. When changing to a grain-free food EPI dogs can go 'cold turkey', so we went from runny cow-pat poos one day to formed poos the next day. I was delighted, I knew I had the right food for Wallace, now I needed to tweak the other factors and soon I would see him thrive.
Wallace has now been eating the Nutrix Duck and Potato food for a month, he is putting on weight and his coat is beginning to shine. He's such a loving little boy that we have decided to keep him. Wallace now has his forever
home with myself and my family.
Thanks to Maria at Nutrix for producing this very important grain-free food. I have recommended it to other owners with EPI dogs, and they too are thriving on it.

My GSD Kara was diagnosed with EPI Endocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency in September 2009. We started her on Lypex enzymes antibiotics and vitamin B12 injections but has always had cow pat motions which are consistant with EPI which is not stable. Kara had been given various prescription foods which did nothing for her and this cost a fortune. Then I was recommended Nutrix by another EPI dog owner and within a week her motions had gone from cow pats to almost normal and I have some pictures to show you the difference. Her coat is now fabulous as is my cat's who is also on Nuitrix cat food. Kara has put on weight on your food and now weight 30.6 kilos. Thank you!! We really thought we would lose her before we found you and I mean that.
I would recommend this food to anyone who has the misfortune to have this horrible illness, but it makes it easier when the food is priced reasonably too! The whole range of dog and cat food are also to be recommended if they are as good as the ones I have tried and Maria is brilliant to deal with.
Jean Smith and Kara, Oh, and Tich the cat.
