Disclosure: I received a bag of Nature’s Logic Duck & Salmon Meal dry kibble for free. But, as always, all opinions are my own. They are not influenced by the compensation.
Pluto, our Boston Terrier, is full of energy. He’s constantly running, jumping, and playing. To keep his energy going we sometimes buy him a dog food with higher protein. But, when considering a high protein dog food, you have to look at the dog, too. There are also a few more factors that come into play, too. I’ll be honest, when I first owned a dog, I had no idea. I just fed them whatever. They lived long, healthy lives, too.
The thought of a high protein dog food may make some pet professionals and owners shudder. The most important thing to remember is: proteins are essential, but in reasonable portions from top notch sources. So, when you’re looking at the protein amount in dog food, you have to factor in other things. Like the source of protein.
Too much protein in a dog’s diet is sometimes harmful. Their body has a hard time processing the protein. So, it’s found in the dog’s urine. So, when I got my bag of Nature’s Logic, I was a little worried. The protein seemed a big high. But, I had to remember it was important for me to look at the other factors, too.

- No synthetic vitamins
- No synthetic minerals
- #1 Ingredient: Duck Meal

Always remember, when you’re looking for a dog food. Consider your dogs age, weight, breed, activity level, etc. Your veterinarian will more than likely be happy to discuss a suitable diet for your dog with you.
Another great thing is the kibble size. It’s small. So, it’s great for smaller dogs. It’s also great for older dogs who can’t chew as well. For example, my senior dog Mack. We let him try some of Nature’s Logic, too. Just like Pluto, it’s hard to get a picture of them eating. They love to eat! But, I was able to get a picture of him begging for more. Even through those gorgeous, old man cataract eyes.
So, I feel like the crude protein (36%) is a little on the higher end. But, the great thing is, the protein is coming from good protein sources. Sources that must meet the Association of American Feed Control Officials standards. Plus, you can’t beat the veggies and fruits that are in the mix.

But, what if your dog is sensitive to a certain protein? Nature’s Logic offers a variety of protein mixes. High protein diets are ideal for puppies and dogs with high energy. We sometimes gave dog’s high protein diets that suffered from pancreatitis at the vet office I worked at.
But, remember: I’m not a veterinarian. So, any diet concerns should be discussed with a veterinarian.
Overall, I’m pleased with Nature’s Logic. The protein is all good protein. You can’t beat the variety, either. I think Pluto and Mack give it two paws up. Because they demolished it!
