Did you know….

  • 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.

We love our dog. Padfoot always seems to have a “smile” for us. You know what I mean. Some dogs just genuinely seem to be happy all the time, that’s Padfoot. He truly does offer us unconditional love and is very eager to please us, especially now that he’s a bit older…he’s turned two last month!

We enjoy taking him for walks, playing with him and he loves to spend time with us. We also love rewarding him with dog treats. As you know, we feed Padfoot pretty much a natural diet. What about you, do you feed your dog a healthy, natural diet?

Wellness for Pets

Did you know that a diet formulated with wholesome, natural ingredients could help your dog live a longer, healthier life, but that most dog foods aren’t made up of natural ingredients?

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.”

Wellness Natural Pet Food for Dogs and Cats

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 & Veggie 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 might 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 the retail locations listed in the Wellness Store Locator.

But be sure that you 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.

And consider following their Facebook page and Twitter feed, where you can join in on the fun with a huge group of fellow animal lovers who share heartfelt, funny stories, entertaining photos and videos of their pets.

If you’re at home as you read this, it’s a good bet that your dog is sitting right next to you, watching your every move. Take a quick moment to tell them about the importance of eating a natural diet, then watch the look on their face… we promise they’ll still love you!

  1. Kelsey Apley says:

    We always watch what we feed our dog. It is always natural from food to treats!

  2. I don’t have a dog, but if I did I’d care for him with foods as healthy as my family had, and general care like a family member.

  3. Ironically enough, after I wrote my post about this dog food. Guess what happened to me?? I ended up with a pregnant lab showing up on my doorstep and claiming us as her family. She is the sweetest thing and she is determined to get into my heart. She definitely deserves this type of quality dog food.

  4. Jamie says:

    I’ve seen so much about this food. Our dog has issues when we change him over, though, so I’d have to talk to the vet first. Great information, though – thanks for sharing!

  5. I don’t know when I will be ready for another dog, but she will get food like this.

  6. Angela says:

    Our dogs are family members. We have to read the label on everything we feed to our dogs. They are on special diets.

  7. HilLesha says:

    I’m hoping to get another dog someday (someone stole my Shih Tzu last spring and haven’t quite got over that). When I get one, I’ll be on the lookout for this brand.

  8. Shell Feis says:

    Wellness is definitely a great brand. We’ve gotten treats of theirs and my pup loves them!

  9. We feed ours the warehouse store brand food. It’s got a pretty good mix but not as good as this.

  10. HilLesha, that’s awful someone stole your dog!

  11. Ty says:

    We don’t have a dog but we’re hoping to get one one day, and if we do I’ll make sure they get food such as this.

  12. We feed our dog Victor Grain Free Dog Food and he does so good on it. He went from having three poops a day to just one now that we’ve switched his food. And he hardly ever passes gas now, too, which is a huge bonus.
