Celebrating the Life-Changing Work of Guide Dogs for the Blind #GuideDogMonth @NaturalBalance

As regular readers probably know, Daisy is a brand ambassador for Natural Balance Pet Foods and they are a big sponsor of our blog. We’re super excited to partner with Natural Balance to help raise awareness and support during National Guide Dog Month.

Guide Dog Month was inspired by Natural Balance co-founder, Dick Van Patten, who was impressed by the intelligence and training of guide dogs. During a visit to a local guide dog school, he was blindfolded and experienced how guide dogs provide mobility and assistance to visually impaired and blind people. After learning about the costs, dedication and commitment to raise and train a guide dog, he was inspired to help raise awareness and support the cause.

I’ve known from early on that Daisy and I have a close bond, but we are truly inspired by the amazing bond between people who are blind and their guide dogs. In addition to providing enhanced mobility for their handlers, guide dogs can also be a social bridge, opening a world of possibilities for friendship and human connection.

Meet Michelle and Oscar. They are just one of the many human-canine teams with inspiring and life-changing stories!

Born with glaucoma, Michelle spent a big part of her young life unable to navigate the world around her. Later, when Michelle became more mobile, it came with its fair share of bumps and bruises. Lacking depth perception, she lived in a constant state of discomfort and found it increasingly difficult to get around.

Around the same time that she started her undergraduate degree in psychology, Michelle made the split second decision to apply for Guide Dogs for the Blind program, and she has never looked back. From the get go, Michelle knew that the program had done a marvelous job in matching her with her beautiful golden guide dog Oscar—they immediately fell into step with each other, and within two months knew they had a lifelong partnership.

Even more surprising was the sheer number of people who approached Michelle on the first day of the new semester. The questions on everyone’s lips were: “Who is your furry friend?”, “Where can I get one?”, and of course “Can I pet him?” With this positive attention, the pair was able to walk with confidence everyday—whether it be on a small grocery shopping trip or a longer trip to visit Michelle’s sister in Los Angeles. Together, the two tackle intense psychology and jiu jitsu classes, but always leave room for playtime. Michelle and Oscar are primed to tackle deadlines and take the mental health field by storm.

New Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diets Wet Cups Pet Food

LID Wet Cups for Dogs

We’ve got news from one of our favorite sponsors about a new pet food offering especially for fur kids who need a limited ingredient diet. It’s Natural Balance L.I.D. wet cups for dogs and cats featuring simple formulas with premium ingredients.

Grain-free and delicious, these wet cups are limited in ingredients, featuring a single quality protein source along with a wholesome carbohydrates source that come together in one hearty cup!

Some dogs and cats do better with only certain ingredients, and these wet cups from Natural Balance minimize the chance of food sensitivities while still providing essential nutrition and the deliciousness your pets crave.

Shreds and Flaked Wet Cups

In addition to limited ingredients, we also love the texture…which is like a real homemade stew. You can see the flaked fish and shreds of chicken. These wet cups are a great way to add some variety by giving your dog a change in flavor and texture. Daisy finds wet food to be a real treat, and we sometimes use it as a topper on her regular Natural Balance Wild Pursuit dry dog food.

Next time you are out at your favorite pet supply store, or shopping online for pet food, be sure to grab a few packs of wet cups for your dog or cat.

You can find Natural Balance on Facebook (a great source for Natural Balance coupons!), follow them on Twitter and learn more at their website.

Does Your Pet Need a Limited Ingredient Diet for Tummy or Allergy Issues?

Limited Ingredient Diets for Pets

Just like people, pets can have allergies, food sensitivities and tummy troubles. Once you’ve seen your veterinarian to rule out other medical conditions or health problems, he or she may suggest you try a special diet. For Daisy, this took some trial and error but we eventually figured out that a grain-free pet food was best for her and saw a huge improvement in her skin rashes and digestion.

Every dog and cat is different, and if going grain-free isn’t enough to see results, you might consider one of single source protein, single source carbohydrate formulas, L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets available from our blog sponsor and Daisy’s food provider, Natural Balance Pet Foods.

Limited ingredient diets minimize the number of ingredients that pets are exposed to, which can be helpful for pet parents looking for simple formulas with simple ingredients.

Natural Balance LID Limited Ingredient Diets foods provide unique alternatives for pets, including:

  • True limited ingredient formulas, with single-sources of animal protein and limited carbohydrate sources
  • The most extensive selection of unique proteins including venison, bison, and wagyu beef
  • Puppy and Large Breed Bites formulas are also available just for our tiniest and biggest best friends too!
  • Complete lines of limited ingredient offerings for both cats and dogs, including dry and canned formulas and treats

How should you go about trying a limited ingredient diet for you pet?

Do a food trial on a limited ingredient diet for at least 10-12 weeks, using a novel protein and carbohydrate source that your dog or cat has not had before. No other treats or food items should be fed during this time period. [Learn more about Limited Ingredient Diets for Pets]

Pet Food Safety Program

In addition to paving the way for limited ingredient diets, Natural Balance has also been a long-time leader in pet food safety. Every production run of Natural Balance pet food is tested before distribution so that you can “Buy With Confidence”.

Not only do they test all products in their state-of-the art in-house laboratory for nine known contaminants before they reach store, but pet parents can also find the Best By Date on your Natural Balance product and read your product’s actual test results on their website.
