Hi Everyone! I’m so excited to be teaming up with Petco on the #PetcoWholehearted campaign! As you guys know, Mr. Grumples has been on a weight loss journey for the past month. When the vet told me he was almost fifteen pounds overweight, my heart sank. I felt horrible and immediately came up with a game plan to get him back on track. It’s unbearably hot in the South during the summer months. Grumples won’t walk in the heat for more than five minutes before finding a shade tree to sit under. I don’t really blame him…he’s practically a polar bear. That lack of exercise resulted in some weight gain. This blog post is sponsored by Megan Media and Petco’s Wholehearted blogging program! All opinions are my own and I hope you love this new food for your pup as much as I do! For the past month I have been waking up at 6 am to walk. It’s about 65 degrees and the perfect weather for a long walk. The first couple of weeks, we would walk 2-2 1/2 miles, but now we are walking 4 miles. He’s getting in shape fast! This new routine is something I look forward to every morning. I love Grumples so much and will do everything I can to get him back on track and in the best shape possible. He has brought me so much joy for the past five years, and I want him around for a very long time. A couple weeks ago, Petco reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try out their new WholeHearted dog food. It came at the perfect time because I have been wanting to change up Grumples’s food. He’s been on the grain free Rachel Ray brand for about four years, but I thought it was time to try something else out. We headed to Petco to check out the new food!
There were yummy flavors to choose from. They had chicken & pea, beef & pea, and salmon & pea. There were also wet food cans available. Sometimes I like to mix in one tablespoon of the wet food into his bowl. It’s a little treat for him.
We went with the beef cans and the salmon dry food! We like to mix one tablespoon of the wet food in his bowl. Oh, the distractions at Petco! I love that the WholeHearted food comes in large 25 pound bags. Healthy grain free dog food is usually super expensive, but the WholeHearted food is affordable, which allows more people to afford healthy food for their dogs. It’s about $20-$30 cheaper than the average 25 pound healthy grain-free bag. He didn’t go home without snagging some toys… The ultimate test! What did Mr. Grumples think? Whenever I change up his food, I always make sure to gradually mix in the new food into the old food. He has a solid stomach, but I don’t want to take any chances! The mix was a fail because Grumples ate all around his old food. I think it’s safe to save he LOVES his new food.
There are so many great things about WholeHearted dog food. -Grain Free, All Life Stage Formula -Guaranteed canine probiotic strains help maintain healthy digestion -Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids for Healthy Skin & Coat -No Corn, Wheat, Soy or Grains of any kind -Antioxidant Formula for Healthy Immunity (guaranteed levels of Vitamin E, Selenium, and Zinc) -Vitamins & Minerals for Balanced Nutrition -Real Salmon # 1 Ingredient **You can read more about the benefits on the website!**I feel good about the ingredients too. I was going through Grumples’s treats a couple months ago and got a little worried when I saw all the fake dye and flavors. You won’t find any of those in the WholeHearted bag. It has yummy ingredients like salmon, lentils, pea flour, chickpeas, peas, canola oil, sweet potatoes, flaxseeds, salmon oil, and more! Petco has given me a three month supply of the WholeHearted dog food and I cannot wait to see how Grumples does on this. I will make sure to keep you all updated with his healthy lifestyle changes. If all goes well, I’ll most likely sign up for their repeat deliveries they offer online. Grumples is down 6.2 pounds and we have about eight more to go!
