The Good: Very nutritious, Myah enjoys it quite a bit, Not as expensive as many other premium dog foods, Aroma indicates it is real fish!
The Bad: Somewhat expensive, Makes Myah’s breath smell a little bit.
The Basics: When fed the NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food, Myah became an enthusiastic fan, which was good given how aromatic this food is!
Even though Myah has no specific dietary need for grain free dog foods, but occasionally, in the course of giving her new foods (which I do because she liked variety and it gives me that much more to review!), she does get a grain free dog food from time to time. When I started feeding her the NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food, I was actually quite happy that she seemed to enjoy it immediately; after all, it is a pretty aromatic dog food and given how she goes right for it, her enjoyment of the food kept the house from smelling fishy! This is one of the NutriSource dog foods that Myah more enthusiastically recommends!
Myah enthusiastically ate the NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food and, given that it is made up of quality ingredients, the only real detraction is the food’s expense (though it is not at all as expensive as it could be!).
A single serving of NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food is two and a half cups for a big dog like Myah and she is supposed to get one such serving per day, so a thirty pound bag lasts about a month, given how eagerly she consumes it (and how much of a sucker I am for those big blue Siberian Husky eyes!). Getting a month out of the $50 bag is a bit too expensive for me, even for a food Myah loves eating. Each piece of NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food is a dark brown disc that is very mealy in its texture and they are hard. They are 1/2" in diameter and 3/16” thick.
Ease Of Preparation
As a dry dog food, preparation of NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food is as easy as opening a bag and measuring out the pellets inside. There is no further prep needed.
The NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select actually smells quite a bit like actual fish, albeit a generic fish smell. This is a very aromatic dog food, though the aroma is not unpleasant. Myah ran to her bowl each and every time this food was set out for her. She enthusiastically consumed it at every meal and she even waited by the bag a few times in eager anticipation. The only drawback was that this food actually did leave a slightly fishy smell on Myah’s breath (and, because she was so happy with the food, she would come to me, smiling, and share that breathy fishy smell with me each day she ate this!). Still, it was worth it to make her happy and to give her such good nutrition.
NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food is made primarily of salmon, menhaden fishmeal, and peas.

NutriSource Grain Free Seafood Select dog food is one of Myah’s absolute favorite new (to us) dog foods and, were it not for her love of variety and my bank account not being able to sustain it, I would feed her this food every day for the rest of her life!
