Unlock Optimal Digestive Health with Balanced Blends

In the long run, whether or not your dog is the picture of perfect health or a series of expensive vet visits, is likely determined by the food they eat. Quality food, from quality ingredients, with the highest quality of supplementation is the foundation on which their overall health is built.

Both good health and bad start with nutrition. When dogs don't regularly eat a nutritious diet, they may experience:

More sickness: A diet lacking in essential nutrients can lead to weakened immune systems, making dogs more susceptible to illnesses and infections.

Digestive issues: Low-quality or inappropriate food can cause digestive problems like diarrhea, vomiting, and constipation more often. It can also lead to an imbalance in gut bacteria, resulting in gastrointestinal discomfort.

Skin and coat problems: Dogs with a poor diet may develop dry, itchy skin, excessive shedding, dull coat, and skin irritations. This can be due to a deficiency of essential fatty acids and other nutrients necessary for healthy skin and coat.

Lack of energy: Inadequate nutrition can leave dogs feeling lethargic and lacking in energy. They may not have the stamina for physical activities and may appear less active or engaged.

Dental issues: Poor nutrition can contribute to dental problems like gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. Dogs need proper nutrients to support dental health and maintain strong teeth and gums.

On the other hand, when dogs have good nutrition, the picture is more hopeful:

Improved overall health: A balanced and nutritious diet helps strengthen the immune system, reducing the risk of illnesses and promoting overall vitality.

Healthy digestion: A proper diet supports healthy digestion, leading to regular bowel movements and a well-functioning gastrointestinal system.

Healthy skin and coat: Optimal nutrition provides essential fatty acids and nutrients that promote healthy skin and a shiny, lustrous coat.

Increased energy and vitality: Adequate nutrition provides dogs with the energy they need for physical activities, promoting an active and lively lifestyle.

Stronger teeth and gums: A nutritious diet, including appropriate chew toys and dental care, can contribute to healthy teeth and gums, reducing the risk of dental issues.

Nourishing the Gut with Probiotics and Prebiotics

While nutrition is the foundation of good health, a healthy gut is the foundation of good digestion—and probiotics are the work force that tirelessly maintain your dog’s gut health.

Probiotics work by multiplying in the small intestine, crowding out harmful bacteria and restoring balance to the intestinal flora. This helps combat diseases in the immune system, reduce allergic reactions by decreasing intestinal permeability, control inflammation, prevent urinary tract infections, and even eliminate stinky breath by breaking down bad gut bacteria. They can also aid in digestion and nutrient absorption, leading to improved overall gut health. Additionally, probiotics can help regulate bowel movements and keep dogs regular, even during food changes.

Our Balanced Blend formula includes a proprietary mix of probiotics and prebiotics, which work together to support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. This promotes optimal digestion and nutrient absorption, reducing the chances of digestive issues such as gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Say goodbye to tummy troubles with the Balanced Blend!

Achieving a Healthy Skin and Coat

A shiny and healthy coat is a reflection of your dog's overall well-being. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for maintaining a dog's skin and coat health. Omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA, have anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce itching, redness, and inflammation associated with skin allergies, hot spots, and other skin conditions. They also help to improve the overall texture and appearance of a dog's coat, making it shiny and lustrous.

Omega-6 fatty acids, like linoleic acid, play a crucial role in maintaining the skin's barrier function, preventing moisture loss and protecting against environmental irritants. They also support the production of ceramides, which help to keep the skin hydrated and prevent dryness and flakiness.

By providing a balanced ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids through supplements like salmon oil or hemp seed oil, you can help nourish your dog's skin and coat from the inside out, promoting a healthy and vibrant appearance.

This is why we've enriched our Balanced Blend formulas with Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids nourish your dog's skin, promoting a healthy coat and reducing common skin issues such as dryness and itching. We want your dog to look and feel their best while eating Balanced Blend!

Cardiovascular Health with Taurine Fortification

Taurine is an amino acid that plays a vital role in maintaining a dog's heart health. A healthy amount of taurine in your dog’s system helps to support the electrical activity of the heart, enhances calcium handling within cardiac cells, and protects against oxidative stress. Furthermore, the latest research has shown that low taurine levels are associated with the development of heart disease in certain dogs. For some breeds, such as Cocker Spaniels which are predisposed to taurine deficiency, it is especially important to ensure an adequate amount of taurine in their regular diet.

Knowing how important this amino acid is to your dog’s health, we made sure that our Balanced Blend formula is fortified with taurine. By making this important nutrient a part of your dog’s diet, you can help prevent heart-related issues and ensure your dog's heart stays in tip-top shape.

Versatility for Dogs with Dietary Sensitivities

We understand that some dogs have specific dietary needs or sensitivities. Dog food sensitivities occur when a dog's digestive system has a negative reaction to certain ingredients in their food. Unlike food allergies, sensitivities are not an immune response and typically develop over time. Common symptoms of food sensitivities in dogs include gastrointestinal issues like gas, vomiting, and diarrhea, as well as skin problems like itchiness, rashes, and infections. 

To address food sensitivities, it is typically recommended to feed your dog a limited-ingredient diet that contains novel proteins such as duck, rabbit, lamb, fish—or turkey. This type of diet helps eliminate potential allergens and irritants from their food.

Our Balanced Blends are formulated with this in mind. Crafted from the ground up to be easily digestible and suitable for dogs with various dietary neds. Whether your dog has a sensitive stomach or requires a special diet, Balanced Blend is a versatile choice that will keep their digestive system happy and healthy.
