07/14 DR. TIFFANY BIERER, MARS PETCARE US, NUTRO DOG FOOD, MORGEN MCLAUGHLIN, SANTA BARBARA VINTNERS, THE SUMMER PASS PROGRAM

DR. TIFFANY BIERER, SENIOR MANAGER, HEALTH & NUTRITIONAL STRATEGIES FOR MARS PETCARE TELLS US ALL ABOUT NUTRO DOG FOOD AND THEIR  MISSION TO BRING HONESTY TO THE DOG BOWL

ABOUT THE NUTRO COMPANY
At The Nutro Company, we have a long history of making great pet food — since 1926, in fact. And from the beginning, we’ve been leaders in pet nutrition. Our quality products, high standards, long heritage and pet-loving people make all the difference.

NATURAL INGREDIENTS
Quality Starts Here. Like you, we care about what goes into your pet’s food. We buy our own ingredients and can trace all of our natural ingredients back to their suppliers. NUTRO® Pet Food contains NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Our formulas also contain NO chicken by-product meal, corn, corn gluten meal, wheat, rice flour, soy protein or menadione (a synthetic source of vitamin K). We make sure your pet gets only the best natural ingredients.

  • Our chicken, whole brown rice & oatmeal formula dog foods feature great-tasting, U.S.-farm-raised chicken as the #1 ingredient. This animal protein delivers the amino acids necessary to build muscle and maintain a healthy metabolism.  
  • Our lamb & whole brown rice formula dog foods feature real Australian and New Zealand lamb as the first ingredient and provide optimal nutrition without added ingredients that could cause digestive issues.
  • Our dog foods with fish meal feature seasonally caught fish that are a novel animal protein and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids for optimal nutrition. We also offer a variety of real fish protein as the first ingredient in our cat foods. Salmon is rich in essential fatty acids and amino acids for strong muscles. White fish, tuna and our other fish proteins help build muscles and provide a great taste that cats will enjoy.

PET FOOD QUALITY & SAFETY
Pet food safety and quality are cornerstone principles of The Nutro Company. We go to great lengths to ensure the safety of our food because we care about pets. It's the reason we never compromise our standards.

NEVER OUTSOURCED. NO SURPRISES
When we started making pet food in 1926, the measure of a happy, healthy dog was seeing it with your own eyes. That’s why we use only the finest ingredients from our team of trusted suppliers around the world to make our pet food at our own addresses in California, Missouri and Tennessee.
