Owning a dog is a very rewarding endeavor. There’s nothing like enjoying the unabated loyalty, companionship, and love that a dog offers its owner. In order to keep your dog healthy, it must be eating good, quality food.
There are a number of ingredients associated with healthy dog food. Eating food with vegetables and real meat (chicken, beef, lamb) is imperative. Duly, owners may want to avoid giving their animal food with artificial preservatives and fillers (corn bran, cereal byproducts). Lastly, many also avoid giving their dogs grain-free food (for potential health reasons).
This piece will look at four specific outlets from which dog owners can purchase healthy dog food.
The Farmer’s Dog
The Farmer’s Dog is a company specifically aiming to create healthy food for the consumer. Using a myriad of highly-specific formulas, the food is customized based on your dog’s breed, age, activity level, and weight.
This sort of information is accured when the dog owner signs up through the site. After a quick survey, the owner will have a special-made quantity of food geared for their dog’s absolute needs. The food is both fresh and cooked with immensely high standards.
On myollie.com, dog owners can arrange for healthy dog food to be delivered right to one’s front door. Similarly to The Farmer’s Dog, Ollie asks dog owners to create a profile on their dog (allergies, breed, weight, age, etc). From there, professionals piece together a customized meal plan specifically for the dog.
When it comes to delivery, the owner gets to operate with a ton of flexibility. The food will be sent in correspondence with how fast it should be consumed. Much of the food can be tossed in the freezer and then thawed when needed. Ollie is reportedly giving new customers 20-percent off of their first box. Duly, the site offers a 100-percent money-back guarantee and two-day free delivery.
Chewy is an online outlet which features every single item imaginable as it pertains to dogs (and other pets). This includes harnesses, beds, leashes, and toys. However, it also includes a wide variety of food. People love Chewy for the simple fact that it offers free shipping on items over $49. There are also deals every single day. These sorts of discounts really do make a difference over time.
In terms of specific foods to target, three brands in particular — Canidae, Blue Buffalo, Taste of the Wild — are said to be very healthy options for one’s dog. For example, Taste of the Wild offers food with not only fruits and vegetables, but also antioxidants, vitamins, probiotics, and minerals.
Hill’s Pet takes the health of one’s dog very seriously. There are a number of tabs which specifically look at dog care education (broken down by potential health conditions an animal may have).
From there, Hill’s Pet offers suggestions as to which dog food might be right for your specific pup. This includes a breakdown on food by age, diet, and other factors.
