Tender & True Dog Food Review

Quality meets ingenuity at one of America’s premier dog food manufacturing brands – Tender & True. With their sustainable and scientifically-driven kibble preparation practices, you can rest assured that your pet is getting the very best and the very safest of food in each bowl. 

Tender & True Company Overview

Started in Omaha, Nebraska in October 2004, Tender & True™ Pet Nutrition is a company that specializes in the manufacturing of top-grade cat and dog food. The company has a widespread distribution network across the United States. 

Tender & True produces a wide range of dry and wet dog food suitable for dogs of all breeds and ages. The company is a Global Animal Partnership (GAP) partner and is committed towards improving the quality of life of their livestock on the farm. This partnership has helped the company maintain the stringent United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified quality standards it is renowned for. 

The company also exclusively uses Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sea food in its dog food, sticking to the most organic ingredients at all times. The company is one of the few brands that makes 100% antibiotic-free wet and dry dog food. It is now in the midst of its new project – to be the first pet food manufacturing company to use lamb that is completely organic grass-fed, antibiotic-free and free-range pasture raised, for its pet treats. 

Ingredients Found in Tender & True Dog Food

  • Whitefish (it is a white meat which is a really good source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which help in muscle building and fur health)
  • Chicken meal (contains a lot of glucosamine which is very important for bone and cartilage growth)
  • Tapioca (a very nice source of fiber in the dog’s diet which also help make the food heavier and more filling)
  • Dried beet pulp (is a good source of fermentable fiber and helps improve the health of your pooche’s digestive system)
  • Potato (plain baked potatoes contain carbohydrates needed by dogs)
  • Flaxseed meal (contains the essential fatty acids required by dogs for healthy skin and fur, also an excellent source of protein)
  • Pea flour (contains iron, calcium, fiber and protein, which offers full-body nutrition to pooches)
  • Dried liver (contains iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin B12 and folic acid which help aid digestion, reduce anemia in senior pets, acts as an antioxidant, reduce fatigue, improve hemoglobin count and improve brain & muscle activity)
  • Organic chickpea (a great source of fiber and protein)

The Tender & True dog food is completely grain-free, ensuring that is perfect for both puppies and pooches with digestive problems. Kibble sizes range between 8mm & 15mm, making them easily chewable and digestible. The only let down with Tender & True is its high price. However, with the premium-quality, farm-fresh and completely antibiotic-free food it provides, the product is well worth the spend.
