Whole earth farms, a brand within the Merrick pet care Portfolio, launches a range of new and improved wet and dry dog food formulations developed with the company’s team of veterinarians and nutritionists. The updated packaging features pictures of the farm as well as real food photography to highlight the natural ingredients in each recipe. The new dry food bags also have a food pyramid designed to help pet parents better understand their dog’s nutritional needs.
Every Whole Earth Farms dog food recipe starts with a high quality protein such as real pork, beef, lamb, turkey, chicken, salmon or whitefish as the first ingredient and is made with field vegetables and fruits to ensure a balanced farm diet. With additional vitamins, minerals and nutrients, the balanced diet receives the seal of approval from veterinarians and nutrition experts.
“We use a mix of carrots, apples and flaxseed in our updated Whole Earth Farms recipes because this combination of ingredients is a great source of omega fatty acids that help dogs build strong immune systems and healthy skin and coat,” said Dr. RuthAnn Lobos, Senior Veterinarian at Merrick Pet Care. “Our updated formulas also provide guaranteed levels of glucosamine and chondroitin to support a dog’s healthy hips and other joints.”
