My very first experience with “super premium” dog food was about two months after I graduated vet school. My sweet coonhound Nuke had just been diagnosed with metastasized splenic hemangiosarcoma- or in English, “There’s nothing we can do.” Always a thin dog, he had begun to show the signs of cancer cachexia and was getting bonier by the day.
In a haze, I went into the local boutique pet food store and tried to find a good food to tempt him with in his last few weeks. That is how I ended up with cans of Wellness food. He had turned his nose up at every other brand, but this was one he welcomed. It was my first foray into the world of non-big-company nutrition, and I haven’t looked back. Needless to say, this brand has always held a special place in my heart.
Wellness has joined the ranks of many other civic-minded companies in making generous contributions to pet related causes. This year, they have joined forces with the people at Mambo Sprouts, a site dedicated to green living, with a fun contest that will benefit lots of pets.
The contest is simple and free to enter:
Go to their contest site, and share a great picture of your pet along with your tips for healthy living. I know you guys have great pictures- I’ve been compiling 12 of them for the past week! 😀
For every entry, Wellness will donate $1 up to $1000.
In addition to lots of great prizes, the winner gets to designate the recipient of the donation! How cool is that?
I’m thinking about entering the Brody with a wreath on his head, even though he is looking mildly disgruntled. If nothing else, it’s another dollar in the pot, right? So go forth and enter!
