I admit to being a little picky about what I feed my dog. I know how important it is for me to eat healthy foods, and I want my furry best friend to eat just as well. It is even more important because we are both very active. Every day we go for a run together and play fetch with a frisbee to cool down.
I can tell if my dog is getting the right amount to eat by running my hand along her sides. If I can feel her ribs under a slight layer of skin then I know she is not overweight. I usually leave a bowl of dry kibble out for her all day, and feed her a container of moist food every morning and again at night. The dog food I choose to feed my dog is Purina’s Beneful Brand Dog Food, from the Nestle Purina PetCare Company.
Dogs need protein, just like we humans do, and Beneful packs their foods with just the right amount of beef, chicken, turkey or salmon to ensure our pets get the right amount of this important nutrient. Protein is the basic building blocks of our bodies. Dogs use protein to build and repair muscles and other important biological functions.
Just like humans, dogs use carbohydrates and fats for fuel so they can run, jump, and play. Beneful uses grains like corn and rice, and vegetables like peas, carrots, and spinach not only for these important macronutrients but for the vitamins and antioxidants they provide. Every serving of Beneful provides our pets with 100% of their daily nutritional needs. Purinastore even adds some important trace nutrients like calcium, manganese and iron to Beneful. Calcium is important to help build strong bones, and iron is used to make red blood cells that carry oxygen to the individual cells.
Beneful is the result of over 120 years of research into animal nutrition. Purina’s founder, William Danforth, started the company to provide a properly researched and formulated feed for farm animals. His core belief was that animals that received the proper diets lived longer, produced more and were healthier that those that did not. Today, the company is the largest producer of pet foods in the Untied States, but still upholds Mr. Danforth’s core philosophy. As a result, Beneful is one of the most thoroughly researched dog foods available anywhere.
Beneful can be purchased as a dry kibble, moist in containers, and as treats. There is a number of different flavors you can choose from, in a number of different package sizes. The manufacturing is done in the United States and the entire process is constantly monitored to ensure the highest quality control possible. Even the vendors of raw ingredients have to meet exacting standards to make sure our pets are fed the best possible dog foods.
My dog is my best friend. Not only that, I am responsible for her well-being. Beneful makes it easy to make sure she gets the best care, attention and loving she needs to be happy and healthy.
