Purina warns customers to be careful about the dog food they are feeding their pets. More owners than ever before are choosing healthy food options for their dogs. That is a wise decision as long as that healthy dog food is well tested. In fact, consumers are now spending over $10.5 billion on alternatives that are billed to be healthier than regular dog food. More facts about healthy dog food can be found in the Daily Herald. When you are considering healthy alternative dog foods make sure to consider Beneful, a Purina Store product. First, most of the ingredients in Beneful are from the United States. Of course, that keeps Americans working helping the economy stay strong. Purina assures that all of its products meets United States Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration standards. They then make sure that they raise the bar on those standards to make the best dog food for each stage of a pet’s life. Over 99 percent of all Beneful is made in the United States at plants and factories owned by Purina. In order to make sure that your dog gets the best food possible when you choose to feed Beneful, Purina hires over 400 scientists who work on research to develop the best dog food possible. The company uses dogs from rescue organizations to test their dog food. These dogs live a very pampered life at the Pet Care Center where they are allowed to roam and play just like your dog is allowed to do in your home. Maintaining this center allows scientists to know exactly how different dogs react to the food long before you find it on your store shelf.
