Lucy Pet Products Information

Lucy Pet Products is a pet food and supplies brand based in the United States.

Lucy Pet Products was founded by Joey Herrick 2013, who previously had ownership in a larger and more known pet food brand, Natural Balance.

Joey’s aim with Lucy Pet Products is to use sound scientific principles and avoid fads, which are becoming increasingly common.

Lucy Pet Products Product Range

Dog Food

Lucy Pet Product’s dog food range is relatively small and includes four dry food recipes and three wet food recipes.

It is also worth pointing out that the dry and wet food recipes are very similar to each other, often including the same core ingredients.

Lucy Pet Products does not produce any age-specific recipes such as those for puppies or senior dogs.

Cat Food

Lucy Pet Product’s cat food range is smaller than its dog food range and includes only one dry food recipe and three wet food recipes.

Much like the dog food range, Lucy Pet Products does not produce age-specific recipes for cats, such as those for kittens or senior cats.

Lucy Pet Products Nutrition

Dog Food

The nutrition offered by Lucy Pet Products recipes is average to above-average. This nutritional profile correlates to a reasonable proportion of protein and fat but a relatively large portion of carbohydrates.

Below is an example of the nutrition provided by a Lucy Pet Products dry food recipe. As you can see, the proportion of carbohydrates on a per calorie basis is significant.

Lucy Pet Products Example Nutrition

Cat Food

The nutrition provided by Lucy Pet Product’s cat food recipes is similar to their dog food recipes.

The portion of carbohydrates is often too high and not appropriate for cats, which are obligate carnivores.

However, Lucy Pet Products’ wet cat food recipes do offer superior nutrition to their dry recipes.

Lucy Pet Products Ingredients

High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients

  • Chicken
  • Duck
  • Salmon

Lucy Pet Products makes use of a relatively small range of meat and fish ingredients. They use some of the most commonly found ingredients in pet food, such as Chicken and Salmon.

These ingredients are so common because they are affordable and highly nutritious, high in protein and fat.

Lucy Pet Products also uses Duck, which is less common an ingredient. You can learn more about Duck and some other high-quality Duck recipes in our article Best Dog Food With Duck.

Other Notable Ingredients

Pumpkin features in almost all of Lucy Pet Product’s recipes. Pumpkin is most commonly included in pet food to aid digestion, as it is a great source of dietary fiber. However, the portion size present in Lucy Pet Products is large enough that it also contributes to the carbohydrate portion noticeably as well as providing other micronutrients.

Pumpkin

Quinoa and Brown Rice are two grain-ingredients that are found in Lucy Pet Product’s recipes. These grain ingredients are considered by some to be superior to other grain ingredients like Wheat or Corn. This preference by some is as they can provide additional nutrition and are less processed.

Moreover, in recent years, there have been links between dog food recipes with high proportions of legumes and canine heart disease. For this reason, high-quality grains like Brown Rice and Quinoa have further grown in popularity. Read more about the link between legumes and canine heart disease in our article Best Dog Foods Without Peas.

Lucy Pet Products Animal Testing

At this time, we have no information on what type of animal testing that Lucy Pet Products participates in if any.

We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory-style testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will see a significant decline.

Lucy Pet Products Recalls

Despite this, we encourage consumers to be vigilant of any future recalls of Lucy Pet Products recipes or any other pet food products.

Salmon, Pumpkin, & Quinoa Review

Lucy Pet Products Salmon Pumpkin & Quinoa Dog Recipe

Check Price On Chewy

At Pet Food Reviewer we are consistently big fans of dog food recipes with large portions of Salmon. The above recipe from Lucy Pet Products fill this criteria with ease thanks to a large portion of Salmon and Salmon Meal.

The recipe also uses a portion of Chicken Meal which when combined with the Salmon ensures the proportion of the recipe from meat and fish ingredients is significant.

The recipe then uses quite a large range of plant-based ingredients including Chickpeas, Peas, Pumpkin, Quinoa, and Carrots. This mix can provide a moderate proportion of carbohydrates, fiber, and beneficial micronutrients.

The above cat food recipe from Lucy Pet Products is almost identical to the equivalent dog food recipe. It uses a mix of Salmon, Salmon Meal, and Chicken to provide a large portion of protein and fat.

However, while this proportion is excellent for dogs, it is not quite as satisfactory for cats who should have an even large portion.

Once again, the recipe uses a large range of plant-based ingredients including Peas, Chickpeas, Pumpkin, Quinoa, and Carrots. These plant-based ingredients can provide carbohydrates, fiber, and micronutrients.
