What Does Your Pet Need?
Being a Guardian to a pet is a great responsibility and when your pet faces a health-related issue, sometimes it is hard to know what to do.
At Pet Planet, we are committed to helping pets live longer, happier and healthier lives. We believe that this starts with foundational nutrition; that includes healthy food and treats, supplementation and lifestyle choices that work in tandem to both prevent and support illness recovery in our pets. When a pet is faced with a health problem, we often work to treat the illness – which is an important part of the journey back to health – but there are also things that we, as Guardians, can do “right now” that can go a long way in helping our pets feel their very best, while they work to heal.
Below are some products, food, and treat options that may be beneficial to your pet as they work to prevent or heal from illness or disease.
These options have been curated from our shelves to help you find what you need quickly and easily, whether you shop with us in our stores or online at shoppetplanet.com. There are options to fit any budget, so that you can chose what works best for your pet and your pocketbook. All options are interchangeable, and of course, you can choose any or all of these suggested products for your pet to create the right combination of options that fit their unique needs. If you are looking for something specific, please contact your local Pet Planet and one of our Ambassadors will be happy to help.
Pet obesity is one of the leading causes of disease in our pets today. A large population of our pets are considered to be overweight – affecting their health in a variety of ways from joint health to diseases affecting their heart, liver or kidneys. The most important thing to know about pet obesity is that it is completely preventable and treatable. Finding the right foods, treats and lifestyle routines can go a long way in managing your pet’s weight and giving them the longer life they deserve. Here are some options that we recommend in helping your pet with managing their weight:
Platefulls & Laser
A low calorie option that can be added to your cat’s favorite meal, and a toy – guaranteed to keep your cat moving – are a great low-cost way to make your feline feel great while getting the exercise they need.
Fruitables & Teaser
With only 1.25 calories per treat, these crunchy snacks offers your cat both texture and flavor, while a KONG toy like the teaser shown will insight your feline’s natural instincts to pounce and hunt – working all the right muscles to help keep them lean and fit.
Adding a little freeze-dried food to your cat’s diet can go a long way in creating interest and helping them feel full, while keeping their daily caloric intake low.
Adding Adored Beast Love Bugs to your cat’s diet will work to help improve immunity though activation of good bacteria that will ensure your pet receives the best parts of the nutrition you give them.
Barky Bark & Chuckit!
Barky Bark chews are highly digestible, low calorie treats that can be offered as a whole piece or cut up to give your dog treats throughout the day. Coupled with a couple of Chuckit! balls – you’re favorite pup will be running around, burning off those unwanted calories.
Digestive Supplement & Slow Feeder
A digestive supplement, like the Fruitables option, can go a long way in helping your pet feel full while ensuring they are getting every ounce of goodness from their diet, while a good slow-feeder bowl will help ensure that they take their time enjoying every lick, bite, and chew.
Nulo Freeze-Dried & Rebarn Chew
Adding a little freeze-dried food to your dog’s diet can go a long way in creating interest and helping them feel full, while keeping their daily caloric intake low. These tiny morsels are great for treating and training too. A long-lasting, low calorie chew – like the Redbarn Collagen Braid – will help keep your pet happy and full while encouraging a healthy weight.
Adored Beast Love Bugs
Adding Love Bugs to your dog’s diet will work to help improve immunity though activation of good bacteria that will ensure your pet receives the best parts of the nutrition you give them.
