On-the-Go Dog Food Giveaway

Healthy Foods for Every Pet
The holidays are right around the corner and it's perfect timing for our monthly dog food giveaway from Castor and Pollux. Castor and Pollux manufactures All Natural and Organic pet foods great for dogs and cats of all breeds and ages. 

Those of you who frequent my blog you will know I am a big advocate of Natural and Organic foods, not only for our pets but for ourselves as well. Castor and Pollux has a whole line of foods perfectly designed for all types of pets. Not only are there cat and dog foods in their line, but there are specific foods for puppies/kittens, as well as the overweight pet, senior pet, small breed dog, and more! 

Today I would like to challenge those of you who feed your pets non-natural or non-organic foods to make the switch and see if you can notice a difference in your pet's health. We will call it the Castor and Pollux Challenge. The winners will receive vouchers for 15 lbs. of free pet food from Castor and Pollux--Natural Ultramix and Organix--as well as a very handy travel food bowl from MANKINDdog. One winner will get a super duper Kurgo travel bowl! This will be perfect for Holiday travels! Details about how to enter are below.

Tanner Loves His ORGANIC Food!
If you are still not convinced to give a natural diet a try, let me share a bit about the difference between your normal, everyday dog food and all-natural or organic dog food. Many people today are still unaware of the impact it can make on someone's (animal or human) health when they eat natural and organic. Most foods that you will find in a typical grocery store (pet or human) contain many synthetic ingredients and lots of chemicals and preservatives that are extremely harmful to your health. 

These man-made ingredients often include artificial flavoring, preservatives, food coloring, fillers, etc. Our bodies and our pets' bodies are not accustomed to processing these kinds of products and can inflict nasty side effects as a result. One such repercussion includes weight gain, which as we all know is an extremely big issue in the U.S. A great deal of it may be a result of all the synthetics we are eating, us and Fido.

Natural pet and human foods do not contain any artificial ingredients and are made from all natural products. However, in many 'so-called' natural foods, the meat source may still include hormones or antibiotics that were given to the animal to help it grow. Additionally, the animals may have been fed with food that was treated with chemicals which henceforth are absorbed by the animal and are then transferred to the food. Organic foods on the other hand, contain entirely organic ingredients meaning no added preservatives; all ingredients are hormone-free, and chemical free. Therefore, going entirely organic is the best choice, however, I definitely understand sometimes it is difficult. Organic foods are harder to come by, and are typically more expensive.

Lucky for you though, this free pet food giveaway is a great way to start the process, and I highly encourage everyone to take the challenge! If you are concerned about switching your pets to a new diet, the Castor and Pollux website has great information on how to transition your pet to a new type of food. Also for more info, you can follow Castor and Pollux on Twitter and go to their Facebook page to ask questions or read others' comments. Four lucky winners of this giveaway will receive vouchers for 15 lbs of free pet food as well as a handy ManKindDog travel bowl. This travel bowl will be great for visiting family and friends during the holidays. To enter the free giveaway, simply jump on the rafflecopter below.

I keep Sissy on the same food and amount of food. I make sure her food is meeting her needs and I also make dog treats when I can't find "safe" ones.



Amy said...

We only adopt senior dogs and we immediately transition them to Castor and Pollux Organix dry dog food. Not only do they love it, but they are soon much healthier than when we adopted them! Their coats and energy definitely improve. In addition, we give them all natural treats.



Christine Aiello said...

I buy her grain free beef canned dog food and mix it with rice and chop meat. I've been doing it since she had an intestinal problem. This is what the doctor told me to give her. I also get her groomed every weeks. Give her a bath often, brush her often, brush her teeth, clean her ears, give her flea and tick and heartworm meds monthly. I try to limit how many treats she gets as well.



CRichman said...

I try to only give Bullet organic and natural foods

Do most (or even half) of dogs notice the difference between organic and natural food? I'm worried that If I switched over to organic, my dog wouldn't eat it.
