Pet Food

MADE WITH PURPOSE

From quality North American ingredients backed by our 'No Bad Anything' promise, to our unique small-batch production for superior control, every bag we craft represents an unwavering attention to quality and an ongoing commitment to natural, wholesome nutrition.

Living well is a choice we make for ourselves and our pets.

Good Food

is not great food

There are a lot of pet foods on the market, enough to make it difficult, if not near impossible to know at first glance which one would be best for your pet. Here are some things we think you should know to make the choosing easier.

Good food contains quality ingredients and is made by large corporations or is outsourced by marketing firms to be processed at the discretion of third party manufacturers.

Great food contains nutritionally balanced, trustworthy Canadian and US sourced ingredients made in small batches for superior quality control.
It is crafted with pride and made with purpose by companies that are family owned.

Nutrience is great food, made to nourish your pet from the inside out.

Doing it right,

means doing it yourself

To provide every assurance possible that the pets we feed are well nourished and full spirited, every bag of Nutrience is processed to the highest possible standard within pet food manufacturing and is in fact equal to that of human grade facilities.

Every batch made passes the most rigorous testing procedures, subscribes to the most stringent food processing policies and is double checked by third parties for safety.

In addition, our facility is routinely audited by NSF International and found to be compliant with regulatory standards, client specifications and procedures.

Since 1955

a family tradition

"If we're going to give our family name to something,
it has got to be the very best. Our customers trust us
and we need to prove we deserve that trust. After all,
without them, we wouldn't be in business."

Signature ROLF C. HAGEN, Founder
Rolf C. Hagen Inc.

These guiding principles of the first generation of Hagens, established nearly sixty years ago, are as much a part of Rolf C. Hagen Inc. today as they were then.

Now in its second generation of family ownership, the company operates its own pet food facility as the means of providing absolute assurance that its Nutrience brand promise is kept, the promise of a food made from quality ingredients that truly nourishes pets to live a healthier and longer life.

That great food is Nutrience.

See and feel the difference.

ESSENTIAL HEALTHY FATS

Healthy fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, are principle ingredients of every Nutrience formula. You can both see and feel the difference when feeding foods of superior value.

  • Fish & salmon oil

    Coldwater fish such as salmon and herring contain some of the highest levels of DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids. They can improve your pet's skin and coat, reduce inflammation, regulate the immune system, improve cognitive function and assist in prenatal development.

  • Flaxseed

    These tiny seeds are packed with nutritional components. They're a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and high in soluble and insoluble fiber.

  • Coconut Oil

    Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a medium chain triglyceride (MCT), that elevates the metabolism, provides a higher level of energy and vitality, protects from illness, and speeds healing. Coconut oil also improves skin and coat conditioning, enhances digestion, and reduces allergic reactions.

Protective antioxidants.

REGIONAL FRUITS & VEGETABLES

  • Pumpkin, butternut squash, carrots, spinach
    & broccoli:

    Their bright colors alone are indicative of the presence of powerhouse nutrient beta-carotene. It boosts the immune system, guards against illness, and promotes cardiovascular health and good vision. Moreover, they contain anti-inflammatory properties, cancer-fighting properties and are a good source of dietary fiber.

  • Apples & pears:

    Apples and pears provide sources of pectin (soluble fiber) to aid digestion and are rich in potassium, helping to maintain heart and muscle strength.

  • Blueberries, cranberries
    & pomegranates:

    Known as "superfruits", pomegranates, blueberries and cranberries are renowned for their numerous protective anti-aging and metabolism boosting effects. These include fighting heart disease, memory loss, cancer, urinary tract infections and obesity.

Nature's remedies.

NUTRIENT-RICH BOTANICALS

Botanicals have been valued for their medicinal and therapeutic properties throughout known history. We've been including them in our formulas for over 15 years for their power to naturally strengthen, heal and cleanse the body.

Ginseng:

Increases physical and mental performance.

Ginkgo Biloba:

Helps improve circulation and enhances blood-flow to the brain thereby increasing memory and concentration, and aids in the prevention of vision degeneration.

Ginger, Fennel & Peppermint:

Support the entire digestive system.

Juniper Berries:

Promote urinary tract health, lower blood glucose levels, strengthen kidney function and may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Green Tea:

A rich antioxidant with numerous protective properties that fight against cancer, the inflammatory effects of arthritis and heart disease. It also boosts metabolism and helps burn fat.

The better choice.

LOW-GLYCEMIC CARBOHYDRATES

The low-glycemic carbohydrates in Nutrience foods may lower the risk of diabetes and help prevent obesity.

By limiting carbs to those with a lower glycemic index where possible (lower or slower release of glucose into the bloodstream),
the pressure on the cells to produce insulin is reduced – as is the risk of diabetes.

We include staples such as sweet potatoes, steel-cut oats, lentils, and green peas, to be not only delicious, healthy ingredients,
but to contribute to a longer and healthier life for your pet.

Going above and beyond.

NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

Nutritional supplements are beneficial to humans and pets alike. In addition to ensuring that our formulas contain all the vitamins, minerals and amino acids our pets require we've also added prebiotics, probiotics, glucosamine and chondroitin.

While prebiotics and probiotics work together to support a healthy digestive system, glucosamine and chondroitin are incorporated into our formulas to help maintain hip and joint health.
