I’m sharing #NUTRO in my life as part of a NUTRO™ sponsored series for Socialstars™
Did you know my dog has an Instagram page? It’s true. I started @DaisyDogLove after multiple people told me she needed her own Instagram page. “She’s just so cute – she needs one!” said a friend. I couldn’t deny that.
Managing a separate Instagram page is just the start of my love, care and affection for my dog. She really is one of my best friends. She is always there for me. Studies show that losing a dog is often more heartbreaking than losing a relative! Seriously. And after having a dog of my own, I believe it. Let’s just hope that day never comes, mmkay?
It’s no secret that I often write about Daisy on my blog. She is a big part of my life. I love sharing with other dog owners how I keep my dog healthy, how to show your dog love or even how to clean dog fur off the couch! My dog’s health and happiness are a priority to me. When she was just a tiny puppy I would research day and night for the best collars, dog bedding, toys, treat and of course food! Food is so important!
There are some dog food brands that are exceptional and some that are far from that! It’s not as complicated as it might seem to choose a healthy, wholesome, natural food for your dog! When choosing a brand of dog food, I like the three pillars from The NUTRO™ brand: Simple, Purposeful and Trustworthy.
I am a label reader. I always have been. Both for human and dog food. It is important to know what you and your dog are eating! I hate when I am in a rush, pick something off the shelf that looks like it would be decent, and then come home to find it has artificial ingredients, added coloring or full of junk!
Making sure the ingredient label is simple and not complicated is important for a healthy life. Limited ingredients, ingredients you can pronounce and ingredients that are wholesome are always a good sign when checking out a label.
When looking at the dog food label, I look for high protein to fuel my dog’s energy. Next, I look for other real foods and not fillers – like chicken by-product meal, corn, wheat, or soy protein! The NUTRO™ brand keeps its pet food SIMPLE by exclusively sourcing non-GMO ingredients as close to their native form as possible. They never add artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.
†Trace amounts of genetically modified material may be present due to potential cross contact during manufacturing.
You know what frustrates me with dog food? There are so many dog food brands that add fillers that are unnecessary and don’t add any nutritional value to the food. What is the purpose of that? It is just a waste of money to me.
Luckily, the NUTRO™ brand makes PURPOSEFUL, nutrient-rich food, ensuring every single ingredient serves a precise purpose. Also, they are dedicated to making a high-quality protein the foundation of each recipe. No nonsense ingredients!
Lately, beyond just looking at the label, it has come to my attention how important sourcing locally, supporting small business, and knowing where your food comes from. It is just another piece to the overall value or food.
I find the NUTRO™ brand is TRUSTWORTHY because they protect pet parents with the integrity of the food they produce. Every stage of the process, from sourcing from trusted farmers and suppliers, preparing only in trusted facilities, and rigorously testing for quality and safety the NUTRO™ brand has the pet and pet parent in mind.
Simple, Purposeful and Trustworthy. These are the pillars I look for when choosing the right brand of dog food for my dog. I think it is important to have high standards for your dog’s food and in the dog food brand that makes it! How about you?
