Healthy Dog Food:
The Key to Responsible Dog Ownership

Dog health and happiness are a dog owner's top priority, and feeding healthy dog food is just one of the many aspects of keeping dogs healthy. September 15th is Responsible Dog Ownership Day, a day to give dog lovers recognition for their efforts to care for their canine companions.

Nutro has been dedicated to establishing the best in feline and canine nutrition for years, and their newly redesigned line of Natural Choice dog food is no exception. Not only does the food have a new and improved look, but the formulas offer simplified dog food recipes that improve this healthy dog food’s overall nutrition.

The entire Natural Choice line now has higher levels of wholesome dog food ingredients like meat and whole grains, in addition to excluding fillers like meat by-products, corn, corn gluten meal, and wheat or soy proteins. By cutting out the artificial, low-quality ingredients, as well as artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, the newly redesigned recipes offer higher nutrient density, improved taste, and improved digestibility.

Dogs are different from cats in their nutritional need because they are omnivores. While cats need foods that are high in protein and very low in carbohydrates or grains, dogs do best on a diet that is well-rounded with ingredients from all the major food groups. Nutro’s Natural Choice line, therefore, focused largely on the inclusion of whole grains as a source of fiber, which encourages good vision, strong teeth, and healthy bone development. It also promotes a more efficient metabolism, preventing fat dogs. To learn more about the changes to the dog food line and all of the new benefits, please read more here.

Responsible Dog Ownership Day is just one day to prompt dog lovers to think about what they do for their dog’s care. Among the most important factors for responsible pet ownership is doing what is best for your companion’s health and well-being, and what better place to start than your pet’s nutrition! Of course, the same applies to cats as well, even if our feline friends aren’t included in this particular observance day.

What do you do to make your pet’s health a priority? What other factors, besides your pet’s nutrition, go into being a responsible pet owner? On September 15, 2012, whether you’re a dog owner or a cat owner or both, let’s take the time to think about and try to honestly answer these important questions. After all, we all want our companions to be with us for years and years to come!
