Consider A Healthy, Natural Diet For Your Dog - #naturaldogfood

Did you know that 83% of dog owners consider their pet a member of their family?  I fall into that percentile.  It's only right anyway.  Dogs are the one member of the family who are always 'there' for you.  They run to meet us at the door every time we come home from work or school.  They always want to play with us, exercise with us, sleep next to us...heck, they'll do anything to make us happy.

How can we return that love?  Besides taking long walks, playing fetch, cuddling together on the couch or giving them an occasional treat, it's by feeding them a healthy, natural diet.  Why?  Because a healthy natural diet will help your dog live a longer, happier, healthier life.  "Natural products go far beyond just basic nutrition," says Dr. Al Townshend, staff Veterinarian at Wellness Pet Food.  "Natural diets are designed to provide the very best nutrition and can have significant benefits."

In fact, according to Dr. Townshend, "natural diets offer ingredients with some important health benefits such as probiotics, those good bacteria that are essential for a healthy immune system and digestive tract; glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health; omega-3 fatty acids or fish oils for heart and kidney health; and added digestive supplements to enhance digestibility to get the very best benefits from quality proteins and fats."

As a leader in natural pet food, Wellness uses natural, high-quality proteins and fats in their dog food recipes.  They also include fruits and vegetables for natural vitamins, minerals and other benefits, especially antioxidants that occur in blueberries, cranberries, and some vegetables, which help make their dog food products some of the healthiest options in the marketplace.

Wellness recipes do not include added artificial colors, flavors or ingredients, and they've even created a helpful "Check Your Bag" website that you can use to compare their natural dog food to those from some competitors who claim to be natural.

Some of the biggest benefits to Wellness Complete Health Recipes include:

Live Active Probiotics - Added after the cooking process to promote a healthy intestinal tract and overall digestive health at guaranteed levels

Omega 3 & 6 Mix - Offering guaranteed levels of essential fatty acids for cellular function and healthy skin

Essential Vitamins & Minerals - Designed for cellular health, immunity and disease resistance

Fruit & Vegetable Antioxidants - A proactive step in improving your pet's nutrition

Rigorous Safety Testing - A Quality Assurance program that maintains strict standards for food safety

Excellent Nutritional Standards - Every batch of dry food is tested throughout the entire manufacturing process, from its basic ingredients to the finished products

While Wellness may not be as widely known as some of the more mainstream brands of dog food, their devotion to quality and natural, high-quality ingredients makes their food safe, wholesome and beneficial to pets' health and wellbeing.

To pick up a bag of some of this high-quality, natural dog food, you can order it online or stop by one of their retail locations listed in the Wellness Store Locator.
