“You are what you eat.” It’s a saying that most of us have grown up hearing and perhaps not really considering the ramifications of that simple phrase. Not until many of grow up and reality sets in that the food we consume makes a huge difference in our well-being, stamina, thinking, sleeping, happiness, and overall health. Raising a child with chronic medical conditions has forced me to consider every single piece of food that she consumes, and when our chihuahua, Hayley was recently diagnosed with chronic conditions, her diet also became an integral part of her recovery.
Being a dog and cat owner my entire life, and communicating with so many pet parents over the years, one thing we always seek out is the healthiest dog food and cat food for our furry family members. And we are regularly dismayed by the large amounts of recalls from the mass produced choices often available. It’s one of the reasons why I’m intrigued by the Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Crafted™. This dog food is made in small batches, not mass produced, so each bag offers specially prepared meals. Available in dry, wet, and treats, each meal offers quality meats, pure vegetables, and wholesome grains (but also features gran free varieties as well). Incidentally, this models the optimal diet for humans and pets. Proteins include trout, salmon, tuna, roasted beef and chicken cooked slowly, along with ancient grains such as quinoa, buckwheat and vegetables like sweet potatoes, barley and peas.

As a human and pet parent, I would much rather improve health through nutrition rather than medication. Ideally, preventing potential health issues through the boosting of healthy and fresh foods is even better. The Crafted line also offers the individuality found in supermarkets today, similar to all those craft beers and artisanal cookies, coffees and chocolates.
You can find the Crafted line on shelves now at PetSmart. Later this month, it will be available at Petco, on Amazon.com, and at specialty retailers.
