“My dogs love the taste.”


“Our German Shepherd Cosmoe is 7 years old and has eaten By Nature food his whole life. He is a happy, healthy dog who always finds the food appealing.”

“My pup needed to lose a couple pounds, but when I cut back on her previous food, she always begged and begged for more. I switched to By Nature grain free because I like the increased protein and lack of grain as fillers. She has lost the weight and does not beg for extra food. She seems very happy and energetic on the By Nature Grain Free Turkey and Sweet Potato.”


“I buy the By Nature Grain Free Dog Food for my dogs because one of my boxers has cancer and this food follows the guidelines for the cancer diet that he is on. I give the grain free cat food to my 23 year old cat because he will eat it (unlike the prescription diet he was on) and it’s healthy ingredients prevent him from having the issues he had on some other non-prescription diets.”


“I love my three fur babies more than anything and would only want to feed them the very best. I did research and dealt the best was By Nature.”


“By Nature is high quality dog food that I feel good about feeding my dog. When I pour it into her bowl she comes running and enthusiastically eats every bite. With some other dog foods she will let it sit in the bowl most of the day before eating, but not By Nature. I will continue feeding this brand for years to come!”


“My dog loves this product! I previously did not feed her anything but dry dog food, but my vet suggested it because of my dog’s allergies. To my surprise, she loves this dog food.”

“My daughter, Suzette, (age 49) has had a black lab service dog (Angie) for 3 years and she feeds Angie only By Nature dog food. The food was recommended by the NEADS dog training organization. Angie loves the dog food and she gets one cup in the morning and one cup in the afternoon. This amount of food gives her all the nutrition she needs and has kept her weight at the recommended level of 60 pounds. Suzette who suffers from cerebellar ataxia couldn’t be happier with the By Nature dog food. Angie gets no other snacks or table food—-the By Nature is all she needs!”


“Our boxer pup has dealt with colitis, diarrhea, and bloody stool for the first year and a half of her life. After endless vet visits, specialty vets, multiple medications, multiple attempted big brand name foods, AND a colonoscopy before her first birthday, there was no clear answer and there seemed to be no available resolution to her symptoms. We came across this brand in an analytical comparison of dog food nutritional contents. We tried this food and now her stool looks perfect, she is off all her medications (saving over $100/month), and she is such a happy girl. She loves to eat this food and it is the first food she eats without mixing wet food. Thank you so much for creating such a quality product. It so greatly impacted our dog’s quality of life and reduced our stress levels. Nutritional content and quality is so important and we were doing our puppy’s health a sincere injustice by giving her low quality foods. By Nature is the best!”

“Such a great food. My dog just loves it. Can not find a better food for your dog, that is worth every cent.”


“My dogs have been on the regular By Nature Pork and Sweet Potato food for a while now. We recently found out about this grain free line and so we tried it. We feed MUCH less of it, as the calorie count is higher. The dogs love it and their coats are stunning. I really like that this product is American sourced and made and that it is not made by a giant mass produced company that also makes cleaning products and toilet paper. Just pet foods. I love that they care about what goes into our animals bodies and that they care where they get the food source from.”

“Love that it is grain free, and that its ingredients include a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and other healthy ingredients like minerals and prebiotic fibers that help the immune and digestive system. Protein is also very important, and this recipe does have a good amount of protein. Didn’t have any bad reactions after eating and the stool consistency was healthy, which are both great signs.”

“I have Yorkies and and the size of these were perfect. They loved this food!! I love the ingredients too!
I am very picky when it comes to my dogs and I was very happy with this food!!”

“Hampton and Nika are always moving (running, swimming, rolling,) so I know I need to make sure they are eating right and fueled up for the next day’s adventures. I tried a A LOT of dog foods before finally finding Active Defense – a food with the nutrition to keep up with my pups.”

“Our husky Madison is always so full of energy, and it’s really important to us that she stays that way as she gets older so she can keep coming on hikes and trail runs with us. I wasn’t sure if her current grain free food was giving her everything she needed (proteins and overall nutrition), but saw By Nature Active Defense+ and figured it would be worth a try. Not only did she love it (granted she loves food, but she seemed more thrilled than usual), she has been doing great on the new food. I don’t think we would ever switch to anything else – I just feel much better knowing her diet is helping her be as healthy as possible.”
