I was selected as a brand ambassador for Hill’s Ideal Balance and was compensated for writing about their food and hosting a couple giveaways for my readers…
- Hill’s Ideal Balance | Balanced Nutrition is Key to Healthier Dogs
- Hill’s Ideal Balance Grain Free isn’t Junk Food for Dogs
- Hill’s Ideal Balance | Reading Dog Kibble Ingredients is Important
- Grains in Dog Food | Hill’s Ideal Balance Grain Free Dog Food
- Hill’s Ideal Balance Dog Food | Natural Dog Food for Every Budget
It was an amazing experience and I thought it would be fun to go over what I learned…
Hill’s Ideal Balance doesn’t Replace Hill’s Science Diet
It’s been fun watching dog food brands provide higher quality, affordable food for dog owners. But that doesn’t mean that they’re replacing food. I know that this is disappointing to many dog owners who believe that Hill’s Science Diet and similar brands are poor quality pet food that shouldn’t be fed to our dogs, but I’ve learned to take care when judging the choices that dog owners make regarding the dog food they purchase, because I don’t have the full story.
Hill’s Ideal Balance taught me to ask questions instead of judging
During this campaign, I had plenty of opportunities to answer to comments that I was being irresponsible by promoting this product to my readers. I lost a few readers and disappointed a few, but I don’t mind. I know that we all have different perspectives when it comes to dog care and nutrition. I’ve witnessed and participated in many discussions about dog food and dog nutrition and each discussion taught me something new about our dogs.
This week, a few dog owners I know who LOVE their dogs admitted to feeding their dogs a food that has an unpopular reputation. It’s the only food that their dogs will eat and thrive on and their dogs are healthy. It’s sad that they worry that people will judge them if they admit what they buy.
How screwed up is that?
Hill’s Ideal Balance is a better quality pet food at a reasonable price
It’s important for me to remember is that not everyone can afford some of the premium dog food brands out there. We live in a country where most families with dogs have more than 1 dog. In a tight economy, it starts to feel like premium dog food is out of reach for many families. It’s cool to see brands meet the needs of families, allowing more people to feed a better quality food to their pets without breaking the bank.
Saving money on pet food
If you’re looking for ways to squeeze a better quality food out of your budget, check to see if your pet store has a frequent buyer plan, go to your favorite brands’ sites to see if they offer coupons and other discounts, or sign up for auto-ship through a site like PetFoodDirect.com to save on food and supplies.
We shouldn’t have to choose between our wallet and our dogs.
