We talk a lot about the importance of all aspects of a healthy lifestyle for ourselves here at FBG, but, as you may know, we also feel pretty strongly about it when it comes to our pets. Happily, much of the general public seems to getting on board with that thinking. From doggie daycare to at-home treadmills to built-in cat climbing systems to foods that almost sound good enough for us to eat, the healthy options for animals are abundant.

What’s driving the availability of cool products and services for our dogs and cats is the “humanization of pets” trend. We want to treat our pets like we treat ourselves and our families, nurturing body, mind and spirit. So, it makes sense that more pet owners are becoming just as conscious about what they feed their pets as they are about what they feed themselves and their family.

Read the labels? Check.

Understand ingredients? Check.

Buy whole proteins, grains, fresh fruits and veggies? Check.

Avoid overly processed foods? Check.

Steer clear of artificial coloring and preservatives? Check.

As with human foods, understanding pet food ingredients goes a long way in determining whether a food is a good, healthy choice for your furry babies. But reading labels can be tricky if they include unfamiliar ingredients (like those eight-syllable ingredients that you know came out of a laboratory). We all feel better when we see foods we recognize: whole proteins, grains, fruits and veggies and vitamins.

You can use the same discerning eye with your pet’s food. Check out labels and see how many ingredients you recognize. If you’re struggling with what some of the ingredients are, you may want to reconsider your pet’s diet.

But some brands have labels that read like your grocery list, and one of them is Halo, Purely for Pets, the natural pet food company co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres.

A new diet Halo introduced last year that’s right up our alley is Vigor™, a diet made for active lifestyle pets and chock full of stuff you’re likely throwing in your own morning smoothie.

Vigor, as the name denotes, is formulated to promote energy, vitality and healthy digestion. It features high quality proteins like venison, salmon, quail and more, to help build strong muscles, complex (low glycemic) carbohydrates for energy and endurance, coconut oil to help elevate metabolism and enhance digestion, and ingredients like quinoa, berries, kale and lentils to help support a healthy immune system. Plus, there’s an assortment of beneficial natural plant enzymes aid in a pet’s digestive process.

Like all of Halo’s diets, Vigor contains only natural ingredients with vitamins, minerals, and other trace nutrients. And, all Halo diets are free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and never contain chicken meal or other rendered animal parts.
