A few weeks ago I shared with you my simple ways to improve your dog’s health (if you missed that post you can find it here). As part of simple changes to get my pup looking and feeling his best, I took part in the Supreme Source® 10-day detox. Just as a reminder of why I chose to do this easy detox with my dog, let me share a little back-story. Most of you know that Ollie joined our family last August and ever since, he’s been an integral part of our daily lives. However, over the long (and did I mention cold) winter months our entire family got into some bad habits. While it was awesome to spend cold days snuggled up in front of the fire, we stopped being as active and started allowing Ollie to get out of some of his well-trained ways. I noticed on more than one occasion my boys were sneaking him table scraps as well and while this seemed to make Ollie happy, as Spring approaches I started to take a look at all of our health. While changing our ways and getting my family back on track with a more active lifestyle and healthier eating habits was my first step, I quickly realized that Ollie needed the same. After discovering you can detox your dog we picked up Supreme Source Pet Food at Food Lion from the pet food aisle, and have spent the last 10 days doing our doggie detox. We picked up the Lamb Meal & Potato Recipe Dog Food for the detox. Now, if you’re giggling (after all, a doggy detox does sound kind of silly!) and thinking that this couldn’t possibly have made a difference, I challenge you to stop and rethink the way you’re caring for your dog as I share how to improve your dog’s health and energy in 10 days!
Now, it’s only fair to admit that Ollie is still a puppy in many ways and has many puppy tendencies. He’s always loved to chase a ball and play with toys. If you catch him in just the right mood, he sprints around the room with his ears pinned back, running as hard and as fast in circles as his little legs will take him. He adores being outside (when the temperature isn’t below freezing). He’s been just naturally playful for most of the time that he’s been in our lives so obviously, it started to concern me the past few months when he was sleeping more and doing less. I chalked it up to the cold weather and the winter desire to hibernate that even I can fall victim to. But once the flowers started blooming and he still wasn’t running to the door when the boys or I grabbed his leash, I figured we were in need of a little change. Since I know that as humans, how we eat directly impacts how we feel, I reasoned that the same must be true for little Ollie. With this in mind, I cleaned out his doggy drawer and did the super food switch with his dog food, replacing his old food with Supreme Source dog food. Now at first, I was worried that Ollie wouldn’t take this change well…. he’s a picky little pooch ya’ll! But he LOVED the taste of Supreme Source dog food! With its grain free formula that contains no corn, wheat or soy and has no artificial flavors or colors, Supreme Source dog food is a simply healthy blend of fruits and veggies, which are a natural source of potassium, fiber, vitamins and minerals. And the best part is, the taste of this food is definitely Ollie-approved!
I knew he had been eating less because of being less active but as soon as we changed his dog food, we started to see a change in him. All of a sudden, he was eating more often. But more than that, within days his energy seemed to increase. Instead of hiding under the bed when one of us went outside, he started easing his way towards the door. A few days later, he was jumping to go outside. Where he had been somewhat playful only when he felt like it before, all of a sudden it was like we were getting the old Ollie back. He once again wanted to play with his toys.
He started to be interested in walks again, but even more than that, when I let him off his leash during the last minutes of a walk, he started to run at full speed, with his ears laid back and a look of complete joy on his face.
While the change was gradual at first, by day 10 I noticed that the energetic little dog that I had so missed during the winter months was back. Where he had been content to lay in his little bed and snooze away the day, he now wanted to play and actually initiated fun with every member of our family.
It was easy to see that as his appetite increased, his energy level did as well. Yes, he was eating more but I also knew he was eating better and that gave him the energy to bring back his happy puppy ways that often leave us laughing and always leave him exhausted after hour upon hour of playful fun.
I will be honest, I hadn’t known how truly sluggish Ollie was acting until I took part in the super food switch and started feeding him Supreme Source dog food as part of his 10-day doggie detox. But now that I’ve seen how he’s eating more and living a more active and happier lifestyle, I could never go back! Gone are the days of my lazy pup and instead I’m greeted each and every morning with a dog who is ready to play and go have an adventure and for me – exactly how I’ve always wanted him to be!
Going forward, I now know the importance of good dietary habits and feeding my pup the best food possible. When paired with keeping him active and up to date on his vet care, Supreme Source dog food is an essential element in my trifecta of keeping my pet as healthy as possible! In fact, I’m so thrilled with the results of his doggie detox using Supreme Source dog food that I want you to join me and help return your pet to their playful and energetic self!
