How We Choose the Dog Foods We Carry

JessicaJoPhotography
Bridger Animal Nutrition® carefully selects foods from the thousands of premium dog foods available in the marketplace.
Over the last 26 years, we’ve developed an approach that evaluates the sourcing, nutrition, and manufacturing methods of food.

When choosing the dog foods we carry, we look at 1) the quality and digestibility of the ingredients, 2) the source of the nutrients and 3) the reason behind the formula’s foundation. We work with reputable companies who care about the quality of the food they make and are honest in all their communications. 
We believe strongly in feeding fresh, whole foods.  The Bozeman store boasts 18 reach-in glass door commercial freezers and a walk-in in our warehouse filled to the brim with species appropriate components and blend for cats & dogs.  Incorporating raw foods into a pets daily diet adds all sorts of healthy benefits like good bacteria, enzymes, phytochemicals, food-based soluble fibers and antioxidants. Raw food promotes cleaner teeth, better digestion, decreases inflammation, and supports the entire renal system.


We're picky about the brands to carry, if we don't carry a brand....there's usually a reason

Consulting

Consulting

Let food by thy medicine. Personalized animal health and diet consultations are available with our experienced consultant, Libby Burr. Libby received her BS in Equine Nutrition from CSU. Her passion for learning about species defined diets grew and she became certified as a  1)companion animal dietician, 2)a clinical veterinary nutritionist and 3)certified pet food specialist.  Over the past 20 years of helping animals heal through dietary changes she has written articles for several journals on both equine & companion animal health. She strongly believes in meeting clients where they are at and respecting everyone's comfort levels . After observing how a pet-parent's appreciation for proper nutrition ignited a need for diet change in themselves, Libby became a certified Integrated Nutrition Health & Diet Coach for people in order to help people with their own next step of wellness.

Our Difference

Your health food store for pets and livestock®

Building

We love what we do, and we hope it shows!

At Bridger Animal Nutrition®, we believe that good health and diet make a happier pet. Our educated and passionate team strive to provide you with the resources, products and services that will bring the most joy and health to your animals. We each have our own stories and journeys with animals, just like you, and take our time to get to know your concerns, goals, limitations and expectations for you and your furry or feathered companions.
Bridger Animal Nutrition® is a small and independently owned, allowing us to be very picky about what we choose to stock. The orders are also small, meaning you’ll always be guaranteed a fresher product. We also choose local whenever possible — we love to support Montana made products!

The food products we stock are chosen based the well-being of animals. Nutrition is a fledgling science and scientists are still learning about different nutrient requirements and synergistic relationships and how these affect organisms short term and long term. We keep up with the current knowledge and offer the newest items in nutrition that the market can supply given all the rules and regulations enforced by regulating agencies. We make every effort to keep you informed about what we know and why we choose to carry, or not carry certain products.
  • USA or Canadian made products
  • Sourceable ingredients
  • Species appropriate formulations
  • Controlled processing
  • Environmentally conscientious practices
  • Montana Feeds when possible
  • Organic Feeds when available
  • Freshness
Some of our very best products came to us by recommendations or requests from you! So if you want us to try to find something, let us know and we'll get to work!
The "non-consumable" products we carry are chosen from the most current trade shows in North America and are based on functionality and fun! We're happy to special order items, and also look for made in Montana goods whenever possible.
equilix
Bridger Feeds has been a mainstay of Bozeman since 1984, contributing dollars, time and energy into our community’s fairgrounds, animal shelters, and 4-H club. In order to expand beyond just a feed store, we rebranded in 2010 as Bridger Feeds Animal Nutrition Center. We specialize in the science of diet and nutrition and offer the most current feed solutions for your animals and are constantly adapting our practices as research progresses.

Each living body is unique. There is no best food or brand — only a best fit for your animal’s needs and overall health.

I love this place! I have 3 large dogs with food issues. They make great food recommendations and are happy to help in figuring out issues. I also love the dog treat bar where you can buy by the pound your dog's favorite treats. Great service too. When I'm in a hurry they get me in and out in 5 min!

Fish Oil vs. Glucosamine

fish oils
A client recently asked me my thoughts on fish oil vs. glucosamine for joint pain and inflammation as they heard of a recent study  claiming fish oil may be better at helping with this than glucosamine. But, they're two very differently functioning supplements, so lets get this cleared up.

My kitty was diagnosed with chronic UTI. The staff at Bridger educated me about feeing enough moisture to my cat, changing the litter box around after the infection got managed, and what to feed to prevent  the UTI, and he hasn’t had one now in 7 months and counting. He’s doing so much better, BIG thank you.
