Shopping for my family is an important job. I try to get the best products I can to keep my family healthy. This doesn’t just go for my human family, but our dog too. I love the convenience of Stop & Shop. Not only does Stop & Shop have a great selection of healthy foods for my family, but I found great products for our dog right in the Pet aisle. Stop & Shop is now carrying Purina Beyond Natural Dry Dog Food. They have a wide selection and each bag’s #1 ingredient is protein. This saves me from traveling to the pet store the next town over. I can get everything I need right at Stop & Shop.

Our dog Allie is getting up there in age and keeping her healthy is very important to our entire family.  This is where a feeding routine is very important. First and foremost, I’m not a veterinarian, but I do know how the right feeding routine is beneficial to my pet’s wellness, and best of all the kids can help too.

Part of my boys’ morning routine is taking care of our dog. They have three steps to follow:

  1. At least 20 minutes of exercise. A game of fetch in the yard is perfect.

    (After she is exercised she takes a rest while the boys have their breakfast.)

  2. Feed the dog and give her fresh water.
  3. Give her one Purina DentaLife. Oral health is important too.

Exercise is so important. We make sure to exercise our dog BEFORE eating rather than after. Just like humans, exercising after eating can be very uncomfortable for dogs. A game of fetch or a stroll through the neighborhood makes everyone happy.

When it comes to feeding our dog I choose a dry dog food that has protein as a #1 ingredient. Canines are carnivores after all. We’ve chosen Beyond Natural Dry Dog Food not only because protein is the #1 ingredient, but for what is NOT in it. No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.  It’s not grain-based, and that’s important to me.

Then there is our dog’s oral health. Aside from brushing her teeth occasionally, we like to give her a treat that also benefits her oral health. We tried Purina DentaLife daily oral care dog treats and she LOVES them!! I feel good about giving her something that will hopefully help manage plaque and tartar daily.
