We are real people. Let me explain. We have what we have. We don’t pretend to have what we don’t have. We work hard and most of the time are able to make a living and squeak by. We have to stay within a budget. Most of the time we don’t have “extra” money. (Not that there even is such a thing as extra money.) So, we have to be mindful of how and where we spend our money, even when it comes to things like food for our pets, who we love dearly and consider members of the family.

For over 30 years, Nature’s Recipe has worked to provide pets with ideal nutrition drawn from nature’s inherent goodness. They craft their recipes to make sure Every Ingredient Counts™, and tailor the food to provide specific nutritional or functional  benefits for your pet’s particular stage of life. Foods designed with such care, foods that contain no artificial colors or preservatives, are foods that often bring the term expensive to mind. Nature’s Recipe is working to break that stereotype by offering affordable healthy pet food for every stage of life.

Just like people, pets go through different stages of life. Dogs begin life as puppies, who are active and require certain things to help them grow. Adult dogs have different nutritional needs, which will allow them to maintain their lifestyle while promoting healthy skin and weight. Senior dogs require different food still, food which will help maintain healthy bones and aid in proper digestion. Nature’s Recipe offers a number of different natural dog food formulations, containing different proteins including chicken, lamb, salmon and duck. They also offer a grain-free formula.

Dobby has eaten the Nature’s Recipe Chicken Meal and Rice recipe for a month now. He eats his daily meals, which consist of the dry food, eagerly. For a treat, sometimes we give him one of the wet foods like the Stew.

The first time I fed it to him we couldn’t help but be surprised at how much it looked like real people’s stew, with chunks of meat, vegetables and rice.

I think your reminder about food changing through a dog’s life is key. They have stages like humans and it’s great to have supportive food choices for each stage.

We were just saying that we need to try a new food for our dog. We will have to check this one out for him.

There was a time when we bought custom, prescription dog food. And then we had kids and had to be more realistic with our budget. As a pet owner, I want the best for my dog without having to take out loans to pay for it!
