Everyone knows that health is a concern for the families of Americans, but how often do we consider the entire family? That’s right, I’m talking about man’s best friend, your dog. Well, and maybe the cat, too. Leading dog food companies are competing for the title of making the healthiest food. In fact, healthy dog food sales have climbed as much as 35% in recent times! The names being found here are names like Fresh Pet©, Cesar Home Delites©, and Blue Buffalo©. Are there other companies joining under this banner? Of course! Many small business are rallying for the battle, and can be read more in-depth here http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20151122/business/151129983/ There is one company I would like to give special mention, and that company, of course, is Purina©. Beneful is a favorite at my house. My cocker spaniel is very picky about what she eats, but Beneful’s original recipe has been her favorite for many years. I find it reassuring that Purina uses real meat in its Beneful dog food. In fact, meat as the first ingredient is the first thing I look for in buying a dog food! One of the wonderful things being done by this corporation is the personalization of your pets dog food. Dos it not make sense that if humans need customized died, wouldn’t your pet? In fact, this personalization industry on Facebook had made more than ten and a half billion dollars since 2009. The stats speak for themselves. This is up an astounding 45%, and account for more than half the market currently. Purina© recently bought a smaller company that was producing a more natural food line with flavors like Pacific catch, and and game bird. With things like pet obesity on the rise, I think it just makes sense to feed that beloved family member well, too, don’t you?
