It’s no secret that many pet foods are loaded with artificial ingredients.
In fact, in 2007 there was a nationwide recall of more than 40 popular brands of pet food. The contaminated products were causing severe, and often fatal, kidney problems in dogs and cats. Nearly 180 brands of wet and dry food were eventually added to the recall list. The FDA officially confirmed the presence of melamine—often used in plastics, cleaning products, laminates, foam, soundproofing and fertilizer—in wheat gluten samples taken from contaminated lots. Very scary – but an all too familiar story even when human food is concerned.
Fortunately there are much healthier dog food brands like Wellness® Pet Food, formulated with wholesome, natural ingredients that could help your dog live a longer, healthier life.
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 #checkyourbag website that you can use to compare their natural dog food to those from some competitors who claim to be natural (and you know I hate natural-washing!)
Some of the biggest benefits to Wellness® Complete Health® Recipes include:
You can also connect with their Naturally Well Pet Community, a free online program that provides exclusive savings offers, fun contests, and helpful tips about keeping your pets happy and healthy.
