I’m sure you all know by now how much my pets love getting goodies to try out from their friends at Chewy.com.  This month we got a couple different kinds of food to try out and no surprise here…they were a huge hit with my furkids!

This month we chose a couple new things to try out; Taste Of The Wild Canned Dog Food Southwest Canyon flavor (very fitting for our Arizona region), and American Journey Chicken And Sweet Potato Grain-Free Dry Dog Food.

My 13 year old rescue pup needs some TLC and a much softer diet than my younger dog.  Hermes prefers the taste and texture of wet food and this Taste Of The Wild Southwest Canyon quickly became one of his favorite things.  Sometimes his appetite is lacking due to his canine dysfunction (aka doggy alzheimers) and it can be a chore to get him to eat.  The Taste Of The Wild food seems to keep him interested and satisfied so I’m a huge fan of this food now as well.  Some other great benefits of Taste Of The Wild:

  • Grain-free complete and balanced formula can also be fed as your pet’s sole diet
  • Beef is the first ingredient along with sweet potatoes and peas, providing great sources of highly digestible energy
  • Supplemented with vegetables and fruits, this formula delivers antioxidants to help give your furry friend a healthy lifestyle
  • Formula provides an optimal amino acid profile
  • Made right here in the USA!

I figured that the American Journey Chicken And Sweet Potato was going to be something my dog Venus liked, but I had no idea how much!  She enjoys the taste of this dry food so much that you can use it like treats and she will just gobble it up.  Whether it’s in her bowl or in  your hand, she’ll do whatever it takes to get a taste of that sweet, sweet American Journey (haha!).  Despite a great flavor dogs will love, there are lots of other great benefits of American Journey dry food:

  • Grain-free dog food that’s also free of corn, wheat and soy to help food sensitive pets avoid fillers that might upset their stomach.
  • Nutritious fruits and vegetables like blueberries, carrots and dried kelp provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants for immune system support, and phytonutrients.
  • High-protein dog food with real, deboned chicken is not only delicious for your pup but full of amino acids that help maintain lean muscle mass.
  • Salmon oil and flaxseed provide omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, including long-chain DHA, which helps support your dog’s skin and coat health and brain and eye development.
  • Includes fiber-rich chickpeas and sweet potatoes for energy that lasts throughout every adventure.

No matter what your pets’ personality and appetite, there are lots of great items available at Chewy.com…make sure you check out all they have to offer and reap the benefits of quality pet products delivered straight to your door at unbeatable prices.

Chewy.com Goodies Your Pets Will Wag Their Tails For

ChewyDotCom2.jpg

It’s my pets favorite time of the month…when we get to try out new goodies from our friends at Chewy.com!  This month we chose Zignature canned dog food and Blue Buffalo cat treats, yum!

ChewyDotCom3.jpg

I’m sure you all know by now how much my cats LOVE treats.  Elsa smelled what I was taking pictures of and couldn’t wait to come try some out.  The Blue Buffalo Kitty Yums in Savory Seafood must’ve hit the spot because she fell in love pretty quickly.  These healthy treats will keep your kitty purring and waiting for more.  Blue Buffalo uses only the finest natural ingredients, so you can feel good about what you’re giving your feline friend.  Each recipe starts with real meat, and ends with tasty morsels that are packed with flavor.

KEY BENEFITS:

  • Natural, soft-moist cat treats with added vitamins and minerals
  • Delicious tuna is the 1st ingredient with wholesome brown rice, oatmeal & fish oil
  • Only 2 calories per treat so you can feel good about indulging your feline friend
  • No chicken/poultry by-product meals, just real ingredients
  • Contains no corn, wheat or soy, so they’re great for cats with food allergies. No artificial preservatives, colors or flavors

ChewyDotCom4.jpg

Zignature Venison Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Dog Food was a HUGE hit with Venus.  She loves the flavor, I love the ingredients…you can even see whole peas!  Because venison contains a higher protein content than any other red meat, it’s an excellent meat choice that will leave your hungry dog feeling full and satisfied.  Venison is also rich in iron—even more so than typical beef—so it’s full of B vitamins and provides a lean fat content that’s great for helping immunity and improving cholesterol.

KEY BENEFITS:

  • Limited-ingredient, low-glycemic premium recipe uses real venison as the number one ingredient.
  • Unique protein is hypoallergenic, making it great for dogs with allergies or sensitivities.
  • Lean fat content produces high levels of conjugate linoleic acid, a fatty acid with health benefits.
  • Rich in iron to boost energy, plus high levels of essential B vitamins for balanced nutrition.
  • Made in the USA with no grain, corn, wheat, soy, dairy, chicken, chicken eggs or chicken by-products.

 

Make sure your pets are happy, healthy, and well stocked on the best food/treats/accessories.  Check out all that Chewy.com has to offer…you’ll be sure to find a few things you and your furbuddy can’t wait to try.

Our 30 Day Nutro Ultra Dog Food Adventure…And The Results Are In

NutroUltraLogo

I’m sure you all know by now about the 30 day journey that my dog Hermes and I have taken with Nutro Ultra Senior Dog Food thanks to my friends at Chewy.com.  We have now used Nutro Ultra for one month and I have to say I am pretty impressed with the results that we’ve seen.  I never knew something as simple as Hermes food made a big difference in so many areas!

Hermes2.jpg

Before we started using Nutro Ultra Senior Dog Food, there wasn’t much action from Hermes.  I don’t expect much activity from a 13 year old dog, but what you see above is pretty much all he would do.  Just an old man lump on a log sleeping the day and night away.  I was hopeful to see some benefits like his dander clearing up, his digestion improve, and even ease of movement but I was blown away when even his energy level increased!

Hermes.jpg

First thing in the morning Hermes can’t wait to start jumping all over the kids!  He is excited to see them and shows a puppy-like playfulness that we haven’t seen since we adopted him.  It’s so nice seeing him active and enjoying being a part of our family.

The benefits that Nutro promises were pretty evident early on into our 30 days.  The combination of the three lean animal proteins and complementary amino acids help promote healthy, strong, lean muscles which Hermes seems to be enjoying using a lot more these days.  The targeted fat and protein levels are perfect for helping the energy level of large breed dogs like my Hermslice.  This formula is great at helping your dog’s skin and coat for a lustrous look and feel…Hermes has never been so soft, shiny, and flake-free!  As I mentioned, we tried the senior formula which has naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin which are the nutritional building blocks for healthy cartilage.

It’s been fun sharing our journey with you and introducing you to the goodness of Nutro!!

ChewyLogo

It’s no secret that I love my pets, and we LOVE when we get to try out new goodies from Chewy.com.  It’s the perfect time of year to spring into new, delicious ways to treat your feline to nothing but the best.

FancyFeast.jpg

I swear, I think it has gotten to the point that my cats know what the Chewy.com box is!  As soon as I pulled the Fancy Feast variety pack out of the box and started taking pictures, you can see that my cat Cheese couldn’t wait to see what was in there.  She wouldn’t stop rubbing her body on the box trying to be cute so I would open it and let her check it out, haha!

FancyFeast2.jpg

The Fancy Feast Poultry & Beef Feast Variety Classic Pate Canned Cat Food includes 8 cans of each of the following flavors: Tender Beef Feast, Chicken Feast, and Turkey & Giblets Feast.  Over 25 years of experience has perfected the Fancy Feast food, and my cats thoroughly enjoy every last bite of it!  Each can of Fancy Feast is made with high-quality protein sources and ingredients so you can feel good about the treat your feline friend gets to enjoy.

Orijen.jpg

I like to give my cats special treats just like I do my dogs, and these Orijen Cat Treats were a HUGE hit with my cats!  I tried the Original Orijen Cat Treats and both Elsa and Cheese loved them at first sniff.

Orijen3.jpg

Orijen’s unique and flavorful Tundra treats feature ranch-raised elk, cage-free quail and steelhead trout, all delivered fresh from Canadian regions in Whole Prey ratios so you can indulge and nourish your cat at the same time.  Made without cooking or preservatives, Orijen’s Biologically Appropriate treats are gently freeze-dried to lock in the life-giving goodness and flavors of fresh and regional ingredients for a reward your cat will truly love.

Orijen2.jpg

I have owned cats for many years, and I have to say I never tried training one before.  Elsa loved these treats SOOO much, I figured why not see if she can learn tricks?  That’s right folks, there’s proof in the pictures above.  I actually trained my cat to sit using Orijen Cat Treats…who would’ve thought??

Chewy.com is full of great ways to spoil your pet…what will you try first?

Our 30 Day Nutro Ultra Dog Food Adventure…Halfway Through And Loving The Results

NutroUltraLogo

As you all know by now, I am trying out Nutro Ultra dog food, courtesty of Chew.com,  with my senior dog Hermes and I thought I’d check in with all of you and let you know how we’ve been doing.

Nutro3.jpg

You’ll all remember this handsome face…I mean…how could you not?  Hermes is my old dude that needed a little TLC in his life.  We embarked on a 30 day adventure trying out Nutro Ultra Senior Dry Dog Food and Nutro Ultra Senior Wet Dog Food a couple weeks ago and so far I am loving the results I’ve seen.  I did mention in the first post that the switch initially made him gassy, but after a few days that subsided and we started to see some major improvements in Hermes.

Nutro4.jpg

Nutro seems to have reversed the signs of aging a bit which can be a difficult task for any product on a 13 year old dog.  The dander that Hermes was afflicted by has nearly vanished, and he seems to be much more comfortable with flake and itch free skin.  My family and I have also noticed a new-found level of energy that we hadn’t seen from Hermes and we’ve been thoroughly enjoying playing with this old man like he were a puppy…it’s one of the most adorable things you’ll ever see!  It also appears that when Hermes is settling in for a nap he is much more comfortable and gets to sleep much easier.  In the past, Hermes has had some trouble getting comfy for a nap and would roll around in the bed and make noises that I call his “old man groans” until he finally found a comfy position to lay in.  These days Hermes is having a blast playing around and getting right to sleep when he climbs into one of his dog beds.  It appears that my old man is living a better quality of life and it’s all thanks to Nutro!

Our 30 Day Nutro Ultra Dog Food Adventure…First Thoughts and Hopeful Expectations #Review #Giveaway

NutroUltraLogo.jpg

NutroUltraSenior.jpg

I’m sure all of you know by now that I am an animal lover, and have a house full of furkids.  When Chewy.com offered me the chance to try out Nutro dog food for 30 days I was absolutely ecstatic!  I have a recently adopted senior pet that could really benefit from Nutro Ultra Senior dog food and I’m super excited to share this little experiment with you all.

Nutro11.jpg

If you’re a frequent reader of my blog, I’m sure you’ll remember back in January when we added a new furbaby to our family.  When a local “rescue” was closed down by the county, there were 200 dogs needing immediate homes which is a big task to accomplish especially in our little tiny town.  I just knew that we had to help out, and although we could only adopt one, at least it was something.  I sought out the senior dogs as they are the most overlooked in adoption situations, sadly.  After my husband, myself, and my three children spent a couple hours meeting all of the dogs, we knew that “kennel #52” was our dog.  No dog should live without a name so before we even signed the adoption paperwork we named him Hermes…the perfect compliment to our other dog, Venus.  This sweet 13 year old has quickly become a great family dog, but I just haven’t been able to find a good food for him.

Nutro104.jpg

I’m sure you can imagine that at 13 years old, there are a few issues with our handsome guy.  He’s got dander, he can’t see too great anymore, and he has a hard time going to the bathroom sometimes.  I can’t wait to see how the next 30 days go using Nutro Ultra Senior Dry Dog Food and Nutro Ultra Senior Wet Dog Food.

NutroUltraDryFood2.jpg

I am pretty impressed with the quality of ingredients in Nutro Ultra Senior Dry Dog Food.  REAL CHICKEN is the first ingredient…what dog or pet-parent wouldn’t appreciate that?  This Nutro Ultra Holistic Superfood Blend contains the perfect mix of premium lean proteins, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy oils to help your dog be at his/her best.  Combined protein sources from high-quality natural and holistic ingredients ensure optimal Amino Acid levels and great taste for your dog.

NutroUltraWetFood2.jpg

It should be no surprise that the Nutro Ultra Senior Wet Food is full of greatness as well.  Nutro’s natural wet dog food tastes great and helps provide the nutrients every senior dog needs.  You can clearly see the whole vegetables in the wet food which means you know exactly what your dog is getting.

Nutro12.jpg

Hermes loves his wet and dry food served up to him mixed together and doesn’t like change much, so I decided that I will keep with his routine and mix the wet and dry together.  You can see that the new food went over really well with Hermes…he even licked the bowl clean which he never does, he lets my other dog do for him.

Today is day 2 on the Nutro Ultra Senior food and so far, so good.  Hermes is a little gassy today, but that’s something any pet parent should anticipate with a diet change.  I’m pretty confident that his gut will adjust in the next couple days and hopefully we’ll start seeing some benefits from the new food.
