November Nutrients

NOURISHED IN NOVEMBER

Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, togetherness, and obviously, lots and lots of food. While we're all ready to dive into the food and festivities, we must always keep our four-legged friends in mind.

What dog food ingredients should you be avoiding?


White FLOUR

White flour is proven to cause spikes in blood sugar that have a steep drop-off.

BHA

The CDC has listed BHA as a known carcinogen that has adverse effects on the liver and kidneys of animals.

Artificial COLORS & FLAVORS

These artificial ingredients are unnecessary and have been linked to hyperactivity, hypersensitivity, and allergic reactions to foods.

CORN SYRUP

Corn syrup, like white flour, causes your dog's blood sugar to spike and can cause long-term health problems like obesity and diabetes. 

NITRATES

Although currently deemed safe to be used in dog foods, these preservatives have been linked to a blood disorder called methemoglobin and cancer.



Animals are sentient, intelligent, perceptive, funny, and entertaining. We owe them a duty of care as we do to children.

The holidays are always a busy time of the year, but we should always keep the safety and health of our pets in mind. Whatever your holiday traditions are, you’ll likely need to make some new ones for this year. Don’t forget to include your four-legged friends' health in this year’s festivities. Happy Holidays!
