Just as we humans experience an “off day” or we fall ill, the same can happen to 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 fact that they are also affected by external factors such as their food, the weather and pollutants etc.
If we want them to live long, healthy and happy lives, it is therefore vitally important that we ensure to provide them with healthy, nutritious meals and that they receive enough love and attention. The same as us humans, they too need to be stimulated physically and emotionally. We therefore 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 well being.
Their Health Starts with Their Diet
Although various things play an equal part, the most important factor in our pet’s health though, is the food which they eat. Although there may be some good Veterinarian (or even some) commercial foods out there, these foods do not provide the best and purest nutrition that our pets require. Because most of these foods contain very high protein levels, but without the pure human grade protein and they also contain animal fat; these foods generally do not sustain our pets. This ultimately means feeding them larger portions, which they do not really require.
Increasing Their Vitality
What our pets do require is pure human grade protein, like the protein we consume and fresh produce. Portions of these types or fresh, organic foods require smaller portions, yet the food increases their energy levels. When we provide our furry friends with the wrong food, they can become obese, or subjects to illnesses such as diabetes and various other ailments. They can also show signs of depression, lack of energy, or lethargy. However, by including our fresh, organic, non-processed food into 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 furry friend 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 the manufacturing process of our food, with 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% all natural human grade protein, 40% vegetables and 20% organic human grade grain, potatoes and sweet potatoes. Furthermore, our foods consist of 100% 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 are experiencing and they take pretty much 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. So, they have a rather big responsibility.
So, why not offer them the best of everything? The best, most nutritional food, regular exercise and a lot of love, care and attention.
Our Companion For Life
One can nearly say that there is a universal understanding between humans and our furry friends, which has existed for decades and will probably exist for decades to come. This understanding is that 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 take special care, starting with their diet; they will live long, healthy lives. In turn, they will not only “serve” as a pet to us, but as a lifelong companion.
This is evident when you consider the special roles some of them fulfil, such as guide dogs and police dogs, only to mention two. They are specially trained do to what they do and they are dedicated and loving companions, not only working dogs, or pets. 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.
Investing in your furry friend’s health is an investment in a lifelong companion!
