Stella And Chewys Nutrition

Dog Food

The nutrition offered by Stella And Chewy’s recipes varies heavily and is especially dependent on the type of dog food.

For example, their freeze-dried and frozen recipes offer excellent nutrition that is extremely high in protein and fat.

Their traditional kibble recipes also offer nutrition that is above-average, although not quite as impressive as the former.

Below is an example of the nutrition offered by a Stella And Chewy’s dry dog food recipe.

Stella And Chewy's Example Nutrition

As you can see, the proportion of protein and fat is significant and would be well suited to most dogs, including those that are more active.

Cat Food

The nutrition offered by Stella And Chewy’s cat food recipes follows the same pattern as their dog food products.

The raw and freeze-dried recipes offer excellent nutrition that is extremely close to cats’ natural obligate carnivore diet.

Their dry kibble recipes offer above-average nutrition when compared to other brands of a similar price range.

It is critical that cats consume a diet high in animal and fish-based ingredients as they are obligate carnivores.

Stella and Chewy’s uses a large range of meat and fish ingredients in its recipes. All of the ingredients within this range are positive additions and excellent sources of animal or fish-based protein and fat.

You can also read our articles where we showcase some of these ingredients below.

Venison

Some of Stella and Chewy’s recipes make use of Liver and other organ meat ingredients. These organ meats are excellent additions and can vastly improve a recipe’s flavor as well as provide much-needed vitamins and minerals that may be lacking in traditional meat cuts.

Other Notable Ingredients

Stella and Chewy’s uses the most popular plant-based ingredients found in grain-free pet food – Peas, Lentil, and Chickpeas. These legumes are so popular as they are relatively cheap yet can provide high nutritional value in the form of carbohydrates, fiber, and protein.

However, there are concerns in the industry as there have been links in recent years between the high use of legumes in dog food and an increased rate of Canine Heart Disease. You can read more about this link here.

Peas Close Up

Barley, Oatmeal, and Millet are some of the grain ingredients found in Stella and Chewy’s grain-inclusive recipes. These grain ingredients are popular among premium pet food brands and provide carbohydrates, fiber, and select vitamins and minerals.

Grain ingredients as a whole are controversial additions to pet food. There are many pet owners who refuse to feed their pets food with grain, and there are others that swear by it. You can read more about some of these ingredients in the below articles.

Millet In Dog Food

Some of Stella And Chewy’s recipes feature Flaxseed. Flaxseed is best known for being an excellent source of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These fatty acids are believed to provide several health benefits to pets, such as an improvement in the condition of a dog’s skin and coat and a reduction in the risk of certain health problems.

Pumpkin is an excellent addition to pet food recipes and features in some of Stella and Chewy’s recipes. It is best known for its high fiber content, which can aid pets digestion to ensure it is regular and consistent. However, that isn’t the only nutrition it provides, and it also includes carbohydrates and select vitamins and minerals such as Beta Carotene.

Sunflower Oil and Canola Oil are both vegetable oils that are commonly found in food for human consumption. However, they sometimes feature in pet food to boost the overall level of fat present.

You can read more about these vegetable oils in our articles Sunflower Oil In Dog Food & Canola Oil In Dog Food.

Tomato Pomace features in many pet food brands recipes as a source of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber can be critical to some dogs to ensure they have regular digestion and stools.

Tomato Pomace is a cheap and effective solution to this problem. Outside of its fiber content, Tomato Pomace provides little to no nutrition.

Alfalfa is found in tiny quantities in many pet food recipes. It is added due to the beneficial vitamins and minerals it contains. Some believe that these can provide dogs and cats with health benefits, although these claims are not well substantiated.

Stella And Chewys Animal Testing

At this time, we have no information on whether Stella And Chewys participate in invasive or laboratory testing of animals.

Many pet food brands, especially smaller ones, avoid disclosing detailed information on how their products are tested and how they execute feeding trials. This is as they fear customer backlash.

We strongly believe that laboratory or invasive testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice. We hope that in the future, it will be eliminated.

Stella And Chewys Recalls

Based on our research (FDA, AVMA, DogFoodAdvisor), Stella And Chewys has not undergone any recalls in its past which makes it a recall-free brand.

Stella and Chewy discuss on their website some of the safety precautions and processes they have taken during their manufacturing process.

This includes the use of High-Pressure Processing (HPP), which the brand uses to naturally destroy harmful bacteria while maintaining their food’s nutritional value. You can read more about this here.

We always ask that pet owners are vigilant of any future recalls of Stella And Chewys or any other pet food brand to ensure their pets remain safe and healthy.

Beef Recipe With Pumpkin & Quinoa Raw Coated Kibble With Wholesome Grains Review

Stella and Chewy's Raw Coated Wholesome Grains Beef Recipe

The above recipe from Stella and Chewy is one of their grain-inclusive offerings. While grain ingredients may put many off, this recipe is worth considering and offers a mix of impressive nutrition and ingredients.

The two primary ingredients are Beef and Lamb Meal, which, when combined, form a large portion of animal-based content. However, this isn’t all, and there are also smaller portions of Pork Meal, Beef Liver, and Beef Fat. Once all of these animal ingredients are combined, they provide a proportion of protein and fat that is extremely satisfactory.

Being a grain-inclusive recipe means that it contains a range of grain ingredients, including Oatmeal, Barley, and Quinoa. These ingredients provide a modest proportion of carbohydrates and fiber.

Cage-Free Chicken Stew Review

Stella And Chewy's Cage Free Chicken Recipe

Wet dog food can be a welcome treat to many dogs and can provide them with much-needed variety in their diet.

The above Stew recipe from Stella and Chewy’s could be an option worth considering. The primary ingredient is Chicken, and the portion size is impressive.

This Chicken acts as an extremely dense source of protein and contributes to a proportion of protein that is significantly above-average.

Outside of this Chicken, there are small portions of Carrots, Tapioca, and Kale, which provide the recipe with a small portion of carbohydrates and fiber.

Remarkable Red Meat Freeze-Dried Raw Dinner Patties Review

Stella And Chewy's Freeze Dried Raw Remarkable Red Meat Patties

As we mentioned earlier, Stella and Chewy’s is best known by many for their freeze-dried and raw products.

The above dinner patties recipe is one of these raw-freeze-dried products. These dinner patties are made up of 95% meat content, which means their nutrition is extremely impressive.

This particular recipe utilizes a mix of Beef, Beef Kidney, Beef Liver, Goat, and Lamb. This mix of Beef, Beef organ meat, Goat, and Lamb will make the recipe is extremely flavorful.

Also, organ meat such as the Kidney and Liver can provide vitamins and minerals that are not abundant in traditional meat cuts.

Given that 95% of the recipe is meat content, there is very little plant matter. The very small portion present is made up of Pumpkin Seeds, Cranberries, Spinach, and more.
