NEW Whole Paws® premium pet food now available at Whole Foods Market ($50 gift card giveaway ends 10/25/13)

 

Whole Foods Market Whole Paws

I love my five cats, dog and fish. I want them to all have long, happy and healthy lives. Just like it is with my family (my “human” family that is), I am always concerned about what I am feeding my pets. I don’t want to feed them “junk food”.

I still remember the day about a year or so ago when the vet asked me what I was feeding my cats (dry food). When I told him he said, and I quote, “It’s a bowlful of Skittles”.

Skittles? I love Skittles, but I certainly wouldn’t want to feed them to my pets. I’m pretty sure that is not good for dogs and cats. :-)

I also have a cat with Diabetes and another with Asthma. Because if them I became a label reader when it comes to pet food. I want to make sure that there are no ingredients in their food that doesn’t make sense to me.

When our cat Bella was first diagnosed with Asthma I tried to find out what could trigger an attack. I thought her food might have held a key to her attacks. After all, some people are sensitive to grains, so why not pets? Also, when in nature does a cat or dog eat grains? They don’t. So why would they be included in their foods?

Whole Foods Market has launched a new brand of premium pet foods called Whole Paws® that is grain free – both wet and dry foods. As an added “bonus” the dry food bags are in a #2 recyclable bag.

Made with real chicken, salmon and other wholesome, nutrient-rich ingredients, Whole Paws® – contains NO corn or soy, NO animal by-products, NO artificial colors, NO artificial preservatives and NO added sugar— and the new line meets all of Whole Foods Market’s strict quality standards. Whole Paws products officially hit store shelves on October 1st and will be available exclusively at Whole Foods Market locations nationwide.

Whole Foods Market Whole Paws canned cat food

Whole Foods Market sent my pets a variety of flavors from their new pet food line.

My dog gobbled up the dog food. He’s not one to be picky (he’ll eat everything we put in front of him). That is OK with me because I know the food I gave him was a “better” option than some of the other pet foods available for him. I have to admit that I haven’t always served him the best food. I felt good about serving him a dog food that was made with NO corn or soy, NO animal by-products, NO artificial colors, NO artificial preservatives and NO added sugar.

My cats tend to be picky at times. With five cats it’s hard to keep up with who likes what flavor/variety. A couple of my cats are picky (Bella and Padmé). I found that Padmé ate all of the Whole Paws® food that I served to her. If she doesn’t like something she’ll simply walk away. She didn’t do that with any of the foods. She ate whatever I put in front of her.

Whole Paws Dog Training Treats

Bella is also picky. At first she liked all the flavors I served her but then she stopped liking the pâté and preferred to eat only the shredded varieties.

As for my other three cats they seemed to enjoy everything I gave them. None of them left even a morsel behind in their dish. They ate it all up.

My dog and cats appear to enjoy the new Whole Paws® line of food. As a pet “mom” I like knowing that I am serving my pets food that is better for them and are made with strict standards from Whole Foods Market.

Comments

  1. I love my pets and think they would enjoy this.

  2. We have a black lab named Molly and a tabby cat named bunny, and I would like to see if grain free foods would give my pets more energy and make them happier.

  3. We have two cats. One cat is very picky about what she eats. I try to make sure that what I am feeding her is healthy and nutritious because she eats so little. Our other cat is not picky at all. We will eat whatever you put in his bowl. So for him I try to make sure it’s not just a bunch of empty calories. This pet food sounds good because it is so healthy and not full of a bunch of fillers.

  4. Brooke Adametz says:

    We have a lab mix, he’s very sensitive to grains in his food so I’d love to try this brand!

  5. Ellen Lopes says:

    I have two sister cats, Daisy and Lily, they are getting older and this sounds like new line to try them on.

  6. Just purchased this dog food for my Australian Cattle Dog and am excited to see what she thinks! I am glad ur dog likes it! I only shop at Whole Foods for myself and hope I have found the right match for my pup so I won’t have to stop at the pet store anymore for her food!

  7. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I have two cats and I think this would be healthier for them than what they normally eat.

  8. Adrienne Gordon says:

    We want to do anything we can to keep our dog healthy

  9. melissa Resnick says:

    my cat ,Bolt is sooo amazing, he truly thinks he is a dog, he would love this

  10. I have four cats – I love that these foods have no meat by products!

  11. I follow on Bloglovin – CrystalW07

  12. Scott Martin says:

    My dog chip is the greatest. He is always there when I need him. He deserves the best to eat.

  13. We have a Hanging Tree Cow Dog named Freckles. I would like to try these treats because I try to give her healthy treats.

  14. I have 2 cats I like how the cat food has no corn or soy and no artificial colors, artificial preservatives and no added sugar

  16. alyce poalillo says:

    I have 4 cats, ages 2 years to 15 and I try to give them the best I can on a limited budget so this would allow me to get them the best food for a while.

  17. Michele P says:

    I have 2 house cats, Stubby and Shadow and I love to give them fresh, nutritious food whenever I can to give them a break from the traditional foods I also purchase from the grocery. Like us, they also like to have a change and not eat the same thing over and over, so this would be a great product to try to see if they like it.

  18. Thomas Murphy says:

    I have a black lap named Jack and I want to try this because it is healthy.

  19. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I have a maltese at home and hes the love of my life so this would be great for him

  20. Michelle Weaver says:

    My dogs need to have healthier diets so I think this would be good for them.
