Healthy Dog

Playing with your dog is great exercise for both of you, and because it’s fun, you’ll forget it’s exercise.

Any pet owner will tell you dogs are not just four-legged friends. They are members of the family. Whether they are accompanying you on a walk in the park, warming your feet as you read your morning paper, or the first to greet you when you arrive home from a long day of work, dogs aren’t just ‘man’s best friend’ – they are an integral member of the family.  And, just like any member of your family, your dog deserves the nutrition that will best serve his or her needs.

Since keeping every member of the family healthy and active is important, NUTRO ULTRA food for dogs contains the ULTRASSENTIAL Superfood Blend. It blends a unique mix of high-quality proteins, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy oils that deliver added performance benefits for your dog, including heart and joint health, strong eyesight, and healthy brain function.

“In the right combination, individual superfoods are stronger by working together, like taking a multivitamin. It’s this extra nutritional punch that makes the ULTRASSENTIAL Superfood Blend ideally suited for aiding in total dog health,” says nationally renowned veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker, who has teamed up with the ULTRA brand. “Making sure your dog eats a nutritionally balanced diet is vital to his longevity and happiness.”

Now that is something the whole family can get excited about.

Dr. Becker shares tips to stay active with your dog.

• Stay fit. Nutrition and exercise are vital to the well-being of your dog. Dogs need a well-balanced diet just like people, and you can greatly improve the longevity of your dog’s life by paying close attention to his eating and exercise habits. Exercise, besides helping keep a pet near its ideal body weight, greatly reduces bad behaviors like excessive barking, digging and chewing.

• Clean teeth. Daily oral care is important for a dog’s health, but it is often overlooked. While brushing your dog’s teeth at least weekly is the gold standard, any steps you take to help clean their teeth can prevent illness and help them live a longer life. An added benefit: No more doggy breath!
