Have you and your pup tried purees? See how you can turn your dog's regular dinner into a delectable feast with ease.
Purees are an easy-to-use add-on for dialing up your dog’s dinner. They’re typically made with real, human-grade ingredients that are perfect for adding flavor or for treating. They’re designed to enhance your dog’s meals with added variety, flavor, and nutrition — but not to replace his regular meals.
Read on for three great reasons you and your dog will love purees.
1. Dogs love the taste of purees.
Purees are the canine equivalent to dressing your salad. They’re that special topping that takes your doggy’s dinner to the next level.
With flavors like chicken and pumpkin or natural beef and berry, the best purees are made with just a handful of real, human-grade ingredients. And if those ingredients sound yummy to you, you can bet your dog will be tempted, too!
2. Purees can be great for digestion.
If you’re concerned about your dog’s digestion, purees may be one way to help. Some puree varieties (like Purina ProPlan Savor Additions Chicken & Pumpkin or Berry Blend purees) contain prebiotic fiber. Prebiotic fiber is a special form of dietary fiber that nourishes the good bacteria in your dog's digestive tract, which is key for good digestion and overall health.
3. Purees are perfect for picky eaters.
Is your pooch on the picky side? Try a puree! These super delicious treats make your dog’s everyday food hard to resist. Simply top some of his regular meals with an indulgent-tasting puree and see if he doesn't dig in.
Bonus tip: If your dog’s appetite disappears when he's not feeling well, purees just might be the tasty treat that convinces him to eat. It’s extra important for a pup to stay nourished when he's sick. A puree can help coax him to eat his kibble, while packing in vitamins and good, simple ingredients for an extra dose of wellness.
Purees are a tasty, wholesome way to get your pooch even more excited for meal time. Just remember, while purees are nutritious, they’re still considered a treat — so check the packaging to make sure you’re giving your dog just the right serving size. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that no more than 10% of his daily calories come from treats.
