As my dog has gotten older I’ve gotten worried about his overall health as well as his mental health. I want him to be very healthy until the day the Lord decides to take him home. I’ve done a lot of research into the best brands of premium dog food. So, when I came across this article in the Daily Herald I was really excited to have some guidance and perspective on the best store-bought foods I can get for my dog Harley. Reading this article that I also shared on my facebook account helped me feel more confident in my choices as a pet owner since I was familiar with many of the premium dog food brands mentioned.
Prior to using the Bright Minds formula, I had been feeding Harley Beneful PurinaStore‘s wet dog food from their Backcountry line. I had always wondered why it wasn’t made by Merrick Pet Care anymore, but the article in the Daily Herald explains pretty well that it has now been merged with Purina. Any case, I love the Backcountry line and Harley use to gobble down the Game Bird and Pacific Catch flavors like there was no tomorrow. When I was feeding Harley this recipe I never noticed any sort of digestive issues and the wet food smelled good to both of us. When I first got Harley I tried to buy on Wal-Mart lesser wet food brands which left a distasteful aroma in the house and caused stinky indigestion for Harley.
Currently, as Harley ages I’ve begun feeding him Beneful Purina’s Bright Minds formula. The Bright Minds formula has so many wholesome and nutritious ingredients included in the recipe. Looking at the bag now I’m noticing that they’ve incorporated medium chain triglycerides, which are a type of fat sourced from coconut oil which is apparently much simpler for older dogs to metabolize. Since I’ve begun feeding Harley this formula I’ve really noticed a change in the speed he figures out his puzzle toys. It may be my imagination, but I feel like Harley even listens better since I’ve begun using this recipe. When I transitioned Harley from the Backcountry line to the Bright Mind’s formula, it was extremely easy to do because both lines are such high quality.
