Just as we humans experience an “off day” or fall ill, so do our furry friends. They experience pretty much the same things we do—with the exception that not all of them have to leave home for work! However, it is a fact that they are also affected by their food, the weather, pollutants, and other factors.
If we want them to live long, healthy, and happy lives, we must provide them with nutritious meals and enough love and attention. Just like humans, they too need to be stimulated physically and emotionally. Therefore, we need to play with them and walk them on a regular basis. This also ensures that they get enough exercise, which is just as important to their state of wellbeing.
Their Health Starts With Their Diet
Although various things impact pets’ health, the most important factor is the food they eat. There may be some good veterinary (or even some commercial) foods out there, but they don’t provide the best and purest nutrition that our pets require. Most of these foods contain very high protein levels, yet they lack pure, human-grade protein and also contain animal fat. These foods generally will not sustain our pets. This ultimately leads to feeding them larger portions, which they do not really need.
Increasing Their Vitality
What our pets do need is fresh produce and pure, human-grade protein that’s like the protein we consume. Yes, the serving sizes of these types of fresh, organic foods are smaller, yet such food increases their energy levels. When we provide our furry friends with the wrong food, they can become obese or subject to illnesses such as diabetes. They can also show signs of depression, a lack of energy, or lethargy. However, by including our fresh, organic, non-processed food in your furry friend’s diet, you will ensure that they remain energetic and healthy. Fresh, organic food is also very beneficial for managing your furry friend’s weight.
The added benefit of offering your pets our fresh, organic, non-processed food is that they will receive healthy nutrition with every meal or treat you provide for them. Our food is handcrafted in a restaurant and contains no preservatives (such as BHA and BHT), added sugars, additives, fillers, synthetic vitamins, by-products, growth hormones, or harmful chemicals. We take special care in manufacturing our food, keeping our focus firmly on their health and safety.
At PetsWell Pantry, we make use of a 40-40-20 model. This means that the food consists of 40 percent all-natural, human-grade protein, 40 percent vegetables, and 20 percent organic human-grade grain, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. Furthermore, our foods consist of 100 percent all-natural, human-grade protein and are gluten- and GMO-free. You can rest assured that your pet’s health and safety is our main concern.
They Do More Than We Realize
Many people say that having a pet is like having therapy, and this is so very true! Have you ever noticed how your pet hovers around you when you are having a bad day or if you are feeling a little under the weather? They sense what we experience, and they take most of our emotions on themselves. It is as if they are experiencing everything with us. This is their way of offering us comfort when we need it the most. They have a rather big responsibility!
So why not offer them the best of everything? They deserve the most nutritious food, regular exercise, and lots of love, care, and attention.
Our Companions For Life
There seems to be a universal understanding between humans and our furry friends that has existed for ages and will probably continue to exist: We are to take care of them, and they, in turn, will take care of us in their own special way. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that if we offer them a healthy diet, they will live long, healthy lives. In turn, they will not only “serve” as pets to us, but as a lifelong companions.
This is evident when you consider the special roles some of them fulfill, such as guide dogs and police dogs. They are specially trained do to what they do, and they are dedicated and loving companions, not only working animals. Therefore, their health should receive priority in our lives. If we take special care of them, we can rest assured that they will take special care of us in their own way.
An investment in your furry friend’s health is an investment in a lifelong companion!
