In late November 2015, Matt and I rescued McKenzie Rae from the euthanasia list at our local shelter. She had been a stray (we’re guessing for her whole life) and she wasn’t accustomed to eating dog food. Well, a few weeks later she became extremely ill. Honestly I thought we were going to lose McKenzie Rae, as her immune system is weak and she’s underweight. My vet suggested feeding her puppy food so she can get the protein and vitamins she missed out on while growing up. I’m not going to feed McKenzie puppy food forever, but what food can I get in the meantime that won’t break the bank yet is nutritious for my girl? Nature’s Recipe®!
Immediately after McKenzie’s second vet appointment (she had to be on IV fluids) I went to PetSmart to pick up some Nature’s Recipe. I knew exactly what I wanted – grain free puppy food. I was in luck! There it was, calling my name. The last bag of Nature’s Recipe Grain Free puppy food! While I was there I also picked up doggy stews. I needed to add water to McKenzie’s food because she was dehydrated. Thankfully, my girl devoured her Nature’s Recipe. What a relief that McKenzie likes the food and I didn’t have to spend a fortune on it. Vet bills are expensive, so the last thing I needed was to spend a ton of money on food that she needs.
What I love about Nature’s Recipe:
- It’s about the same cost as a typical grocery store pet food but it provides your dog with higher quality nutrition.
- It’s available at PetSmart so you can do all of your shopping for pet products in one place! You can also conveniently purchase it on PetSmart.com!
- They offer life stage recipes tailored to your dog’s age.
- When it comes to your pet’s needs, they craft their recipes to make every ingredient count™.
It’s a common misconception that all dog and cat foods are ridiculously priced at big box pet stores. Nature’s Recipe offers a solution to that. You can shop at PetSmart on a budget without compromising your pet’s health. With Nature’s Recipe, you’re saving money while also potentially saving on vet bills – because ultimately a healthier diet means a healthier dog! Pet parents want what’s best for their beloved furry companions and a simple food switch can make a huge difference in the life of your cat or dog.
Today, McKenzie Rae is much healthier! She loves her Nature’s Recipe grain free puppy food and doggy stews. She’s also finally gaining some weight because the puppy food has the protein she needs to do so.
