I just came across an interesting article involving a very dedicated pet retailer. A pet store owner from Washington recently spent a month eating nothing but pet food from her own store shelves. On the surface, the mere thought of eating pet food may be too much for some people to stomach. However, if you take a closer look at some of the products that are available today, it might not seem so crazy. As the store owner pointed out in an interview, she quickly realized that many of the ingredient panels on the premium products she carries in her store read much healthier than a lot of the packages we encounter each day in the human food aisles of the grocery store.
While there are probably not too many doctors or nutritionists who would advise a diet of pet food (I don’t recommend it, for the record), the retailer’s experiment says a lot. Years ago, no one in their right mind would have considered eating the types of pet food that were available. As time has passed, however, pet nutrition has evolved. There are more premium, healthy options available than ever. More companies are committed to using organic and human grade ingredients. At Oxbow, we have been committed to using the highest quality ingredients from the beginning. The more healthy options available, the more pets benefit in the long run.
You probably won’t find me eating rabbit food for dinner, but it’s nice to know that today’s pets are able to enjoy the high quality nutrition they deserve.
