We love our pets and want to them to be happy and healthy, but do we always know what to look for to make sure that’s happening? I mean feeding them, vetting them, loving them, it’s a start but it’s not always enough because like people, not all dogs have the same nutritional needs. There are some things we can look for though, that can make sure we’re addressing all five signs of our pets wellness. They’ll be healthier, happier, and they’ll be around to bless our lives with their presence longer.
- Skin & Coat: Make sure you are choosing foods with the essential vitamins and minerals that your pet needs. You pay attention to this stuff or yourself, but your dog needs these as part of their diet too. Be sure not to overlook Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids to support your dog’s skin, coat and health.
- Energy: Dogs, like people can feel sluggish and lazy if their diet isn’t giving them what they need to get through their day. A balanced blend of high-quality proteins, grain-free carbohydrates and select fats provide the energy your dog needs to thrive and not every dog food available on the market is made equal in that department. Be sure you’re paying attention to this when selecting a food that fits your pets needs.
- Digestive Health: Tell me, how does your tummy respond when you eat unhealthy foods? Mine, not so well. Now some are blessed with a stomach of steel, but most need a little help nutritionally to keep things working correctly. This is no different with your pet. Make sure food contain healthy fibers and probiotics help support healthy digestion.
- Eyes, Teeth & Gums: These babies don’t just take care of themselves. Besides regular vet checks and cleanings, your food choices make a big difference to your pet in this department. Vitamin A helps support healthy eyes while calcium and phosphorous help support healthy teeth and gums so keep an eye on that when making food selections.
- Immunity: Nobody likes to get sick and there are things we can do to help boost our immunity. We can do the same for our dogs by selecting foods with antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables and nutritional supplements such as Vitamin E help support a healthy immune system.
One way to make sure these five wellness aspects are being met for you dog is to feed them Wellness® Core®. Wellness CORE Dog Wild Game is is what we’ve started feeding our Boxer, Remington. It’s perfect because I can just pick it up at PetSmart when we’re on our regular animal supplies stock up run. Remington is a big boy for his breed and he’s a lean, muscle machine.
I love that Wellness CORE is based on the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat and wholesome ingredients like botanicals and nutritional supplements; not corn and not fillers that just stop hunger, rather than actually offer optimal nutrition for your dog. I’m super excited to see how Remmy responds to this better nutrition over the next few months because he really does deserve the very best and we want to keep this big guy around for a while.
