It’s that time of year when things become topsy-turvy. Things are changing. It’s out with the old and in with the new.
Bachaesh and I have moved from the quaint Tri-Cities to the hustle and bustle of the GTA.
Another part of our fresh start to spring is our participation in Nutram’s 30-Day Optimum Transition Challenge.
Nutram wanted to challenge pet parents across Canada to lead a healthy lifestyle with their pets. Part of living a healthy lifestyle is ensuring that you eat a healthy diet. I’m a healthy eater- I am very particular with what I choose to consume-and I take just as much care when selecting a food for Bachaesh to eat as well. After all, you are what you eat!
Nutram nutritionists have developed all natural, holistic dry dog and cat food using wholesome ingredients, such as herbs, fruits, vegetables and digestible proteins from real deboned meats, grown without the hormones. What sets Nutram apart from other specialty food brands is its Optimum Combinations: certified holistic nutritionists have combined ingredients that work well on their own but have enormous health benefits when combined together (for example, turkey combined with chamomile has a calming effect on hyperactive pets). -via Nutram’s Website
Transitioning your pet from their current nutrient-lacking food may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. It takes about 30-days to have a smooth transition, slowly decreasing the ratio of old to new food.
As a pet nutrition blogger, I’ve reviewed a lot of food products for pets with help from my Shorkie. Bachaesh has always been a “selective” eater. He’s very particular about what he wants to eat, and he won’t settle for anything but the best.
Of course, he’s not reading the flashy packaging to make his decision. He can smell and taste the difference in the quality of ingredients. The great thing about Nutram’s new line of food is that it is customizable to your dog’s specific needs- but more on this later!
I’m always concerned when a company offers to send us something to review because there’s a decent possibility Bachaesh just won’t like it, and that will be that. I didn’t have to worry with Nutram.
The first time I offered Bachaesh some of Nutram’s Sound Balanced Wellness food, he ate it all right away, and then waited for a second helping!
We have so much to share with you all on this journey, and we will be posting updates often in the coming weeks. Feel free to reach out to us in the meantime if you have any questions about our experience transitioning to Nutram.
