Any dog owner will tell you that their dog is their baby. As a doting parent to these cuddly companions, it’s only natural that dog owners want what is best for their pet. One area a dog owner is specifically heedful of, is in what type of nutrition their dog receives.
In a recent article published on the Huffington Post (You can read the article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/carlotta-cooper/beneful-revisited_b_9851634.html) Beneful, produced by Nestle PurinaStore PetCare, has come under serious fire for the ingredients its pet food contains. That fire has leveraged a lawsuit that has not yet been settled by the company, instigated by angry pet owners who feel that the company is using poor quality and corrosive ingredients that can be found in products that are known poisons to animals. Nestle Purina has no intention of settling that lawsuit, arguing the lack of evidence to show their product to be anything but nutritious and healthy.
The company has recently made changes to the ingredients in their Beneful line. The reformulation of their Amazon sold product promises to produce a more wholesome eating experience for dogs by utilizing real ingredients. The new changes, which were two years in the making, to Beneful is actually in response to the consumer’s desire to provide a healthier more balanced food to their dog’s dish.
While there are some concerns about the dyes and additional ingredients being used in the new recipe, the FDA has approved the use of such ingredients claiming them not to have harmful effects on pets, or humans. That does not mean pet owner concerns have fallen on deaf ears. The new recipe now includes real meat listed as the first ingredient on each of the eight products in their dry food line. In addition, there has been a reduction in the use of dyes and other chemicals in response to feedback produced by dog owners.
Purina knows not all dog owners will be a fan of Beneful.com products. What’s important is making sure those pet owners who do use the product are happy by ensuring quality nutrition is being delivered to their dogs. Go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beneful for more info..
