If you’ve read this blog for long, you know that I’m very particular about what I feed my dogs. Each of my girls has her own special dietary needs: Sadie, my Doxie, is 14 years old and needs nutrition that’s right for seniors, and my Pittie girl, Nike, has terrible allergies and we have to be very careful what she eats.
For this reason, I started cooking for my dogs several months ago and while I enjoy it immensely, I worry about whether or not they’re getting the ideal balance of nutrients. Too much of this? Not enough of that? I have to admit, it stresses me out a little bit. Who knew dog food could worry a person so much?
When I was asked to try Hill’s® Ideal Balance, a new, natural pet food that provides perfectly balanced nutrition, I thought why not? After all, Ideal Balance has no corn, wheat, soy, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. I like the sound of that. It contains ingredients that I was already using in the recipes I create for my girls, like fresh chicken, apples, cranberries, and brown rice.
At BlogPaws back in May, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Dr. Kathy Gross, a nutritionist at Hill’s who was an important part of the development of Ideal Balance. Knowing that she is passionate about creating an all-natural pet food made me feel good about giving it a try.
I have to tell you, my dogs love Ideal Balance! When I first put their bowls in front of them, both Nike and Sadie looked at me as if to say, “What, Ma? You’re not cookin’ tonight?” But after a few bites, they quickly got over their shock and they downed their meals with joy and gusto.
Have you seen the new commercials for Ideal Balance? Not only informative, but gorgeous! Look at this!
My dogs have been eating Ideal Balance a couple of times a week for a month or so now, and we’re really happy with it. It’s the Ideal Balance for each dog’s specific dietary needs, and I’m happy to say we’ve had no issues with allergies.
In fact, I’m so pleased with the results that I’ve decided to partner with Hill’s, and over the next few weeks I’m going to be talking a little more about their great products, and I’ll even be teaming up with them for a couple of amazing giveaways that you’re not going to want to miss.
Have you had a chance to try Ideal Balance yet? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts. And if you haven’t tried it, give it a try for free! Hill’s is offering a mail-in rebate of up to $12.99 when you purchase a 3.5 pound bag or larger of dry dog food.
