New In PetSmart® – Nutrience® Subzero™
My filming partner Aria and I took her adorable newly adopted puppy Beau to her local PetSmart Store last week to pick up some supplies. It was my first time in that particular west Toronto store. I was excited to see a big display right up front for a brand new type of Canadian high-quality pet food – Nutrience® Subzero™. It is a premium grain-free kibble with a freeze-dried raw protein.
“Grain-free” and “freeze-dried raw” got my attention. We went over to the shelves to investigate further.
Beau was definitely checking the labels.
Who could resist that little face saying “Please Mom..”? Of course, we said yes (and took Beau out of the trolley as soon as he had finished posing- isn’t he too cute).
Kilo the Pug’s Diet and Health
Kilo is my very cute 3-year-old rescue Pug. Kilo really loves food (like me)!! I try to keep him fit and healthy, but he should probably lose a pound or two (again, like me).
He eats a mix of high-quality kibble which he was on when he found me (from Homeward bound Rescue) and fresh fruit, vegetables and other food and treats. I have recently been making Kilo work for part of his meals using puzzles and games. I also use kibble for training.
Kilo is not too fussy about food, but I am. I have been researching grain-free as he doesn’t need grain and fillers in his diet. I always check that a named meat from north America is the main ingredient in his food. Kilo and I both like the Nutrience grain-free canned food which I sometimes mix with his kibble. Recently I have been reading about and considering raw feeding. There certainly seem to be health benefits. I am not prepared to go full raw yet so freeze-dried raw protein is appealing.
I was very excited to get invited to try the new Nutrience® Subzero™. It is great to see a company taking such care to incorporate the latest research and the best high-quality Canadian ingredients for our pets. Yesterday, I went to my local PetSmart and chatted with a sales executive then picked up another bag.
About Nutrience – Nourish the body. Fuel the spirit.™
The PetSmart sales executive was so friendly and helpful. He felt that Nutrience has an excellent reputation for quality and has had very good reviews on their products. From quality North American ingredients backed by the ‘No Bad Anything’promise, to the unique small-batch production for superior control, every bag they craft represents attention to quality and an ongoing commitment to natural, wholesome nutrition.Nutrience Pet Food contains no corn, no wheat, no soy, no by-products, no artificial colors, flavors nor preservatives. It is Pet Food Made with Purpose.
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.
What is Nutrience Subzero?
Nutrience Grain Free Subzero™ is a new Canadian made ancestral diet combining protein-rich kibble and freeze-dried NUTRIBOOST™ including raw protein.
It aims to deliver the nutritional benefits of raw in a convenient and easy to use recipe which sounds great to me.
Apparently the formulations are prepared with fresh, never frozen Canadian sources of meat, poultry, Pacific wild-caught fish and real freeze-dried protein for a superior flavor. Kilo certainly looks like he would like to taste it – licking his lips.
The Nutrience Subzero product range comes in 3 regionally inspired formulations: Canadian Pacific (fish), Fraser Valley and Prairie Red.
Features and Benefits of Nutrience Subzero
I am always looking to keep Kilo the Pug healthy and happy. I really like what I am learning about this new high-quality dog food range:
- We are both proudly Canadian- Made in British-Columbia, Canada and produced in small batches for superior quality control. Wild-caught fish, meat & poultry are sourced in Canada and delivered fresh to the production facility.
- Multiple sources of proteins for a complete and more diverse essential amino acid profile.
- Low-glycemic carbohydrates to maintain a healthy weight and normal blood sugar levels. Important for my greedy Pug.
- Coconut oil and marine source omega-3 for a healthy skin & coat.
- Wholesome fruits, vegetables & botanicals to support a healthy immune system.
- Prebiotics & probiotics for a healthy digestion.I am very interested in the benefits of probiotics
- Glucosamine & chondroitin to support hip and joint health. I take these as well.
- Contains Nutriboost- fresh protein, infused with a unique blend of nutritionally beneficial ingredients, and gently freeze-dried to lock in the natural goodness of raw foods.

In-store National demo event on Saturday, November 28
I’ll be popping back to PetSmart for the in-store demo event on Sat., Nov. 28. If you are interested in grain-free, freeze-dried raw and other high-quality Canadian ingredients for your pets, come and see for yourself.
I’ll also be filming Kilo trying the two varieties we bought and do a follow-up post with his review. Spoiler alert- Kilo just tasted the Frazer Valley and gave it a big paws up. He appeared to really enjoy the taste, texture and kibble size.

We are loving the idea of Subzero! We haven’t got our Petsmart card yet to head out and buy the food, but we have really enjoyed learning all about it, and doing our part to help launch the new food! What a great idea with having raw benefits right in a dry kibble!!!!!

I think these types of foods are a great compromise for those that feel raw could be beneficial, but we’re not quite ready to take the plunge.
I hope they build a PetSmart in our area soon! In the meantime, when I’m headed out on my Xmas shopping trip I might find one and maybe can find this food to give a try.

Kilo looks like he’s a big fan! Haven’t heard of that one before but the ingredients look good.
We are always interested in learning about healthy foods since Cocoa has a sensitive tummy.

Enjoy your nummies, love you tongue out picture!
Jackie Bouchard says
Hmmmm. Interesting. We feed grain free, and we’d tried a freeze dried food, but Rita didn’t like it so we had to switch to something else, but maybe we’ll give this a try.

What a great way to amp up your dog’s nutrition without going full raw! Dogs sure do love freeze-dried meat. Very smart.
