There are many alternatives in our product range.In our Each reference is formulated according to the specific needs of the dog to which it is intended. The first factor to analyze is the age of the subject: obviously, the feeding of a puppy under 12 months, at its maximum development, requires a different food from an old dog.
Another discriminating factor is the size of the dog: a small dog, under 13kg in weight, clearly needs a croquette of different size and formulation from a molossoid of 40 kg.
There are also products specifically designed for dogs with special needs: for example, energy products for dogs that perform heavy physical activity, or the light products for dogs with weight control needs.
All our products are prepared by considering the needs of the animal during each stage of its life: a puppy has nutritional needs radically different from those of an adult dog, or even older. For this reason, our products are perfectly adapted to the specific nutritional needs of the subjects for which they are intended, and it is always preferable to choose the most suitable reference.
The daily indicative dosage is available online and on the packaging. It is developed with a certain elasticity since it is necessary to adapt it within the right range according to age, state of health, physical activity and ambient temperature. Unless otherwise stated, it is recommended to keep the animal within the recommended weight range in the dosage. Unless otherwise specified, we advise you to keep the animal within the weight range in the dosage.
The puppies deserve a special mention, so we refer you to the specific FAQ.
My animal does not eat tastefully the croquettes: can I feed it only with biscuits or with the wet food?
No. Biscuits are usually not "complete" foods and can lead to an increase in weight or incorrect balance of nutrients: they are more appetizing for their composition or for the use of artificial flavour, but do not constitute a meal. The wet food likewise meets the taste of the dog, deceiving him with various and very strong flavour: however, it is nutritionally lacking, and does not bring the fundamentals.
All our products are complete and designed for long years by the pioneers in the field of animal nutrition. Feeding your animals on a home-based diet could lead to a shortage or surplus of certain essential nutrients and would not guarantee a constant quality standard over time, which is necessary for an exclusive diet. Finally, choosing an industrial diet, when correct and well balanced, involves a considerable saving of time and money.
Castration/sterilization causes a variation in the nutritional needs of the subject and his metabolism: it is therefore quite normal that the animal gets fat. The right solution is not to reduce the dose of food, but to switch to specific foods, making sure that it does not reach a weight that is harmful to its health without depriving it of the nutrients necessary for maintaining a correct physical shape.
Meat is an essential ingredient in our animal food: unless the contrary is advisable in specific cases, it is always the first component by quantity. We use only meat of national origin, with animals born and bred in Italy, safe in the health’s aspect and coming from the food industry for humans. The variety of meat is indicated in the ingredients of each product. We also analyze all the batches of raw material arriving in our laboratory of analysis to verify them.
The dog is the mammal that, from its birth to the completion of its development, increases more its size and its weight. For this reason, nutrition is essential at this delicate time in order not to compromise the correct development of the subject. Also, in the puppy, the size of the stomach is very small. This means that the puppy needs to eat little but often, several times both during the day and at night. The only way to guarantee to the puppy a complete and graded feeding on its real needs is therefore the administration “at will” : the nature itself, through the innate sense of hunger, will push the puppy to eat what is necessary. A scientific calculation on how much to administer to the dog should consider countless factors such as: the ambient temperature, the amount of motion, the basal metabolism of the individual subject, etc.… The administration “at will” instead solves all these problems relying on the natural sense of satiety of the dog. In order to achieve this, however, it is essential that the food does not contain artificial or appetizing flavors that lead the puppy to eat more than necessary. It is precisely for this reason that ALL NUTRIX PIU products are completely natural, free of all kinds of appetizing and artificial flavors.
As all high-level athletes know, the biological system of man is like the engine of a car: so, it is also for the dog. Proteins are the mechanical basis that makes up the engine, while carbohydrates are the gasoline that allows the engine to run. Just as in an engine with use you consume gasoline, what is most consumed during physical work in the dog are the CARBOHYDRATES. They are in fact the carbohydrates that must not be missing during an effort, be it of short duration or prolonged, in order not to risk going to ruin the "engine". Precisely for this reason in an energy product the element that must be predominant in percentage must be carbohydrates and not proteins. These ones, indeed, weigh down the digestive process going to burden the liver and other organs, by risking to heavily compromise both the performance in the short term and health in the long term. It is however very important that the proteins present are carefully calibrated, not only in quantity, but especially in quality : more noble proteins allow to be absorbed with a lower load for the digestive system while maintaining in excellent health the "engine" of our friend.
The product contained in our bags has a higher quality value than almost all the famous super-premium on the market.
Our prices, instead, are so low for precise company choices:
- We do not spend too much money on advertising or sponsorship
- The high volume of our production allows us to cut costs
- Over the years we have chosen the least expensive distribution method, cutting unnecessary steps and wastage.
- Our retailers are satisfied with a fair price increase
- We do not pay exhibition spaces and other "fees" as some structures require
- We do not base our pricing policy on competition choices
These and other elements have allowed us over the years to contain prices and provide a product at the top of the market.
Monoproteic products do not exist. A monoproteic product, by definition, should contain only one protein.
It is quite clear that this is impossible because every single food is composed of multiple types of proteins. Even cereals, which are present in almost all feed for dogs and cats, have a protein content
So, when you are wrongly hearing of monoproteic foods, they are actually referring to foods made from a single source of meat (chicken, beef or other). But we do not share this philosophy because the dog, a carnivore historically used to get the food through hunting, needs all the different resources from different types of meat. The choice of preferring only one source of meat is often justified by allergic reasons or intolerance : the problem is that usually the intolerances are caused by the preservatives used for the maintenance of the product and not by the meat contained in it. For this reason, NUTRIX PIU, since its origins in 1954, has always produced its food without the use of preservatives, artificial flavors and dyes, real poisons for the delicate digestive system of the dog.
It has always been a precise choice of Nutrix Plus not to provide "samples" of product. The classic samples of 200/300 grams have no usefulness: the only possible feedback is whether the dog eats the product or not. The dog cannot like even the product with the most refined aroma for a multitude of causes. In particular, in the case of our products, because these are totally natural and free of artificial aromas, it can also happen that the dog at first taste does not like the product because of the palate spoiled by the previous diet
In addition, a quantity of 200/300 grams, therefore sufficient for a single meal, does not give any feedback on the real quality and nutritional goodness of the product : to see in fact some results related to nutrition are necessary at least 5 or 6 days of continuous and exclusive administration. For this reason, and because our products have more than affordable price, we always recommend you to buy a whole package of product (even the 2 kg of our small packages are more than enough) and to see the results personally after a few days.
We have 2 products for our cat friends. Like all our other products, even those intended for cats are completely natural, free of preservatives, artificial dyes and flavors. The first component, and the only protein source, is fish: we use only whole herring, and in the products for cats there is a 48% of it.
We also have a product designed for sterilized/castrated cats: naturally rich in taurine and acidifying agents, prevents the formation of stones and contributes to the maintenance of the shape weight.
