Did You Check Your Bag?

Hey neighbors!

I want to take a minute and discuss something important for anyone who owns a pet.  Do you check your bag to see what you are feeding your pet?  Do you make sure it is healthy for your pet and not full of fillers and preservatives?  Since we have several Shelties, I have become more aware of the food we are feeding them.  So much can be affected by them not getting the right nutrition and nutrients.  Not only their health can be affected, but their coat, skin condition and even their personalities.  Wellness wants to make sure you know some facts about feeding your pets so you can make a wise choice.

None of our Shelties are picky eaters, so I am sure they would eat just about anything and they often try to. LOL!  We do have one is slightly picky. Anyway,  I want to know that I am feeding our Shelties a food that is good for them and of course the very best is a natural dog food.  How about you?  Below are just a few facts for pet owners.

Pet Factoids

Pet ownership in the U.S. has more than tripled from the 1970s, when approximately 67 million households had pets, to 2012, when there were 164 million owned pets.
According to a Packaged Facts survey, 83% of pet owners consider their pet to be a member of the family.
U.S. Pet-Ownership Estimates from the American Pet Products Association for 2012

·        83.3 million - Number of owned dogs
·        47% - of households own at least one dog
·        70% - of owners have one dog
·        20% - of owners have two dogs
·        10% - of owners have three or more dogs
·        1.47 - the average number of owned dogs per household
·        20% - of owned dogs were adopted from animal shelters
·        83% - of owned dogs who are spayed or neutered
$231 – the average annual amount spent on routine vet visits        

Now more than ever before, people are more concerned with what they are feeding their pets.  Of course we know much more now too! Why is a natural dog food so much better?  See what Wellness has to say:

 Why are natural dog food diets so important anyway? “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.”

They also have a Wellness Club.  You can find out more about this on their website.  You will receive articles, savings, contests and events.

Wellness has foods for both dogs and cats.  So no matter if you are dog person or a cat person, Wellness has something for you,  Are you interested in trying Wellness?  Check out their store locator.  Also take a minute to watch the video below.

Research what you are feeding your pet #checkyourbag, so you can make a well informed decision.  I will be doing more research on our Shelties' food for sure.  have a great day and come back by soon for a visit.
