Read pet food ingredients

 

Everyone knows how important it is for humans to read nutrition labels on food - and guess what? It's just the same for pet food! We highly encourage all pet parents to spend a moment to read the labels of the pet food we stock - we promise they're all full of nutritious, wholesome goodness! No artificial colors, no preservatives, and no ingredients pretending to be healthy. Remember you are what you eat and so is your pet. Healthy wholesome diet can add years to your pet's life.

Always take a look at the top ingredients and check to see whether there is adequate wholesome protein for your pet. Some pets need grain-free products, some need weight-control food, while others do best on certain ingredients like fish and lamb. Don't forget to monitor your pet to make sure they are in their best condition, because they aren't able to tell you how they are feeling. Simply because the food looks and tastes tasty, doesn't mean that it is good for your four legged friend!
