Who Is Nature’s Logic?
In 2005 Scott Freeman started developing the concept for a pet food focusing on the benefits of whole food nutrition without using added synthetic supplements which are widely used in the pet food industry to meet the nutritional analytical levels of dog and cat food. The rationale was to provide the essential nutrients from whole natural foods rather than depending on synthetics to easily and cheaply meet requirements. The first test batches were created and by January 2006 some of the first products was being retailed in the USA.
The company’s manufacturing plants are located in Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri, USA. Most importantly they select vendors that can supply ingredients from the USA and other countries with good food safety practices, such as New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and Europe who can guarantee that the ingredients do not come from China and that they contain no chemical preservatives, herbicides, or insecticides. They even go a step further to provide the country of origin for all ingredients on their website so you know exactly where they are sourced.
What Are The Products?
Nature’s Logic list of products includes dog food, cat food, treats, supplements, and Ponderosa Pine cat litter. The focus here is on their dog food, more specifically their dry kibble which are nutrient dense meat based dry foods with concentrates of select fruits and vegetables, containing no wheat, corn, rice, soy, potato or chemically synthesized vitamins, minerals, or trace nutrients. Each dry diet is specially coated with digestive enzymes and plasma protein containing high levels of natural vitamins, minerals, and albumin and globulin proteins. The variety of proteins ensures your pup will never get bored with meal time and there are several novel proteins for dogs with food allergies. Choices include chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, duck & salmon, venison, rabbit, and sardine with the same flavors available in canned formulas.
Since I consider home cooked the best option for Kirby, his kibble intake is limited to a handful placed in an interactive treat dispenser in the morning when I leave for work or when we are traveling. If your dog only eats commercial dog food then I recommend alternating the dry kibble with canned since a dog’s diet requires 70% moisture meaning over time dry kibble takes its toll on the kidneys.
What Are The Ingredients?
When deciding which flavor to test the Canine Sardine Meal Feast really caught my eye! Since Kirby loves fish and seafood we’ve tried salmon dry kibble but I’ve never seen a sardine kibble. He gets 2 to 3 canned sardines each week so seeing this flavor got me rather excited for him.
Sardine Meal, Millet, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Pumpkin Seed, Yeast Culture, Alfalfa Nutrient Concentrate, Montmorillonite Clay, Dried Kelp, Spray Dried Lamb Plasma, Dried Tomato, Almonds, Dried Chicory Root, Dried Carrot, Dried Apple, Dried Pumpkin, Dried Apricot, Dried Blueberry, Dried Spinach, Dried Broccoli, Dried Cranberry, Parsley, Dried Artichoke, Rosemary, Dried Mushroom, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus casei Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium bifidium Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus faecium Fermentation Product, Dried Bacillus coagulans Fermentation Product, Dried Pineapple Extract, Dried Aspergillus niger Fermentation Extract, Dried Aspergillus oryzae Fermentation Extract, Dried Trichoderma longibrachiatum Fermentation Extract
Nature’s Logic adds beneficial micro-encapsulated probiotics and enzymes, which are temperature sensitive, after the cooking process is complete.
What Did Kirby Think?
“Sardines? Seriously sardines? Like sardines in the kibble? Like I can eat sardines every morning?” (Tail wagging enough for virtual lift off.)
I needed a few shots which became harder than I had anticipated since posing Kirby next to a bowl of the kibble was too distracting for him. Every time I said “wait” he would turn his head so his muzzle was facing the opposite direction. Luckily using the kibble as treats worked.
He appreciates the small size of the kibble pieces and can report that there have been no changes in his poop. He’s excited to try the venison and rabbit.
I appreciate the natural whole foods used along with natural vitamins and minerals derived from fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and other natural food ingredients rather than the potentially toxic synthetic forms of which most are sourced from China. I like they use Mixed Tocopherols, a natural antioxidant preservative naturally derived from vegetable oil with no chemical processes. This is a brand I can highly recommend because I feel safe feeding it to Kirby!
I know it seems expensive at $64.99 to $79.99 but when you factor in the health benefits (no vet visits) it becomes much more manageable. Often you can find it at huge discounts online. Dog Food Advisor gives Nature’s Logic their top rating of 5 stars.

We had a problem with Giveaway Tools only choosing one winner. After receiving no response from the GTby email or their facebook and twitter accounts on how to make the system choose four more winners, I went the old fashioned route by writing each entry’s name on a slip of paper and drawing four names from a bowl. Those are the "personally selected" winners which I then added.
