Whole Earth Farms, a brand within the Merrick Pet Care portfolio, is launching a range of new and improved wet and dry food recipes for dogs that were developed with the company’s team of veterinarians and nutrition experts. The updated packaging shows images of the farm as well as real food photography to highlight the natural ingredients used in each recipe. The new bags of dry food also feature a food pyramid designed to help pet parents better understand their dog’s nutritional needs.
Each 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 crafted with field grown vegetables and fruits to deliver balanced nutrition from the farm. With added vitamins, minerals and nutrients, the balanced diets earn the veterinarian and nutrition experts’ seal of approval.
“We use a blend of carrots, apples and flaxseed in our updated Whole Earth Farms recipes because this combination of ingredients provides a great source of Omega fatty acids, which help dogs build a strong immune system and healthy skin and coat,” said Dr. RuthAnn Lobos, lead veterinarian with Merrick Pet Care. “Our updated recipes also deliver guaranteed levels of glucosamine and chondroitin to support a dog’s healthy hips and other joints.”
