There are countless studies in scientific journals that show a direct correlation between having a pet and our emotional health. Some studies have even shown that people have a drop in blood pressure and stress hormones when they are petting an animal. In the beginning, dogs were domesticated to help humans with hunting and other chores. Even though modern dogs still are raised to help us, they have become an integral part of our family. Since we are ultimately responsible for the health and well-being of our beloved pets, we take them to regular checkups with our veterinarian and make sure that all immunizations are current. We also make sure that our faithful friends have good food and fresh water daily. Even when we do all these things, we might be shocked when we start looking at dog food labels. Not too long ago, I decided to look on Youtube at the ingredient list of the food that we were feeding our dogs. I was pretty surprised at what I discovered. Our dogs are part of our family and deserve the best nutrition we can give them. So, why was I feeding our dogs food that had questionable meat bi-products. When I did some research, I found that these “bi-products” that are found in a lot of popular dog food brands are waste products such as animal innards, scrap meat, skin, feathers, or bones. I certainly did not want my dogs eating junk like that. I also learned that many dog food companies use fillers such as corn and grains, which are not part of a canine’s natural protein diet. These were just some of the ingredients that I could recognize. There were other suspicious additives with names I could not even pronounce. Why would I want my best friends eating these things? After some solid research, I decided that I was going to serve my dogs Purina brand’s Beneful. For generations, dog owners have known and trusted Purina for their dogs’ nutrition. Beneful has real protein like chicken, beef, and lamb. It also has a healthy blend of delicious vegetables, like carrots, peas, and green beans. There are no junky bi-products or cheap fillers in Beneful. It has the nutrition I want for my dogs with the flavor that they crave. Beneful is available in dry or wet dog food and has a whole line for the stages of my dogs’ lives. I am glad that I did my homework and chose Beneful.
