Why You Should Spring Clean Your Dog's Diet

With a new year comes diets, health goals and self improvement. While we are all in the middle of working on ourselves, or even forgetting about our goals already, why not consider some goals for your pets? As pet owners it’s our responsibility to make sure their needs are taken care of. As I’ve pondered my own dog’s diet and whether or not she’s getting everything she needs, I thought I’d share some reasons why you should spring clean your dog’s diet.

Lucy, our 6 year old Dorkie (Dachshund/Yorkie mix) is loved by every family member. When the kids get home from school, the first thing they do is greet Lucy! She’s excited to see them and loves all the pets and belly scratches she receives. After having Lucy for 6 months or so, I noticed she was scratching a lot. At first I thought she’d picked up fleas outside, but realized there was more of an issue. I could see that Lucy had dry skin and was constantly scratching because the dry skin was bothering her. I did some research and decided to switch Lucy to a grain free diet.

While I knew I wanted to go grain free for Lucy, I didn’t pay much attention to the other ingredients in her food. I think it’s the perfect time to reevaluate our pet’s food, during spring cleaning! I recently learned about Supreme Source® Pet Food and I was excited to learn that not only do they offer a premium grain-free, superfood diet, but their food is packed with healthy enzymes and prebiotics to cleanse and rejuvenate our best buddies, inside and out.

I love probiotics and prebiotics for my family, so why not for Lucy too? I love the idea that she’s getting some of the same healthy benefits we get to enjoy. I’m sure you’ve all heard we have to introduce our pets to new food in phases, so we don’t upset their tummies. I’m happy to say this spring, Supreme Source will guide you through the entire process with a 10-day detox. Visit www.superfoodswitch.com for a free bag of Supreme Source® pet food (up to $9.99 value, while supplies last) and to sign up for daily emails with tips and instructions to a better relationship with your pet. They will provide you with the steps you need to take to safely transition your pet to better food.

In addition to being grain free and including prebiotics, Supreme Source pet food contains no artificial flavors or colors and has a healthy blend of fruits and veggies, which are natural sources of potassium, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Sounds like the diet my husband is about to start! I picked up our bag of Supreme Source Salmon Meal & Sweet Potato Dry Dog Food at Safeway, while on a grocery run. While you work on spring cleaning your own diets, don’t forget about your dog and evaluate whether he/she is receiving everything they need! Join me and Lucy in the 10-day detox! We’ll follow up with you when the detox is complete!
