Nature's Logic Distinction Pork Recipe Dry Dog Food

With an average score of 6.9, Nature’s Logic’s Distinction dry dog food line is considered a moderate risk food. The score is virtually the same as Nature’s Logic’s Original dry dog food but this line differs in two key ways. First, whole meat is the first ingredient, not meal. And second, the Distinction line is higher in carbohydrate than the Original dry dog food – 30% compared to 22%. It’s important to keep carbohydrate levels to a minimum since there is no nutritional requirement for this nutrient and because it can cause unwanted changes in the gut and metabolism.

While the Distinction line features whole meat as the primary ingredient, the second ingredient is meal. Because whole meat is as much as 70% water weight, it may not actually be the first ingredient by weight once the water weight is removed.   

Staying on ingredient quality, Nature’s Logic Distinction line does not contain any added vitamins or minerals. This can indicate higher quality ingredients. But it’s worth noting that unlike most other foods, Nature’s Logic has not been formulated to meet AAFCO nutritional requirements but has instead opted to perform feeding tests to determine the nutritional adequacy of their food.

On the ingredient safety side, Nature’s Logic Original dog foods uses millet as their primary carbohydrate source. This crop is known to be sprayed with Roundup before harvest, costing the food some safety points for high pesticide/herbicide foods in the top 5 ingredients. 

The food features added probiotics but does not appear to guarantee the viable CFU. Finally, the food does not provide the omega-6:omega-3 ratio, which is a concern since AAFCO allows a very inflammatory ratio of 30:1.
