Durango, Colo. (Feb. 4, 2013) – Recent trends reveal pet owners interact with their dogs and cats in a more dedicated and intuitive way than ever before. According to PetPlace.com, a leading online and interactive resource for pet information, pet parents feed their furry friends treats at least once a day. In support of this popular trend, Zuke’s Pet Performance Nutrition offers dog and cat treats delicious enough to satisfy even the pickiest of appetites and are healthy enough to dish out on a daily basis.
In a recent online poll, PetPlace.com asked its dedicated, pet-loving audience how often they feed treats to their dogs and cats. Upward of one thousand cat lovers voluntarily responded and over half claimed they give their cat a treat, or treats, at least once a day. Meanwhile over 800 people participated in the dog treat poll and over 75 percent of the dog owners also claimed they give their dog a treat once or twice a day.
This information transparently reveals the serious dedication of pet parents connecting with their dogs or cats in a meaningful way on a daily basis, and treats are the vehicle they use to demonstrate this devotion.
With all of this treating going on, it is important to look at the ingredients making your pet purr or wag their tail with delight. All of Zuke’s treats and chew bones are made in the USA from carefully-sourced whole-food ingredients and high-quality, USDA-approved proteins.
“Zuke’s understands the deepest level of dedication displayed between pet parents and their dogs or cats,” said Chris Meiering, Zuke’s Director of Business Development. “Here at Zuke’s we take ingredient and production safety very seriously and are proud to have never been involved with a recall. Zuke’s pet parents can feed all of Zuke’s treats with 100 percent confidence.”
Zuke’s offers a wide variety of dog treats, including the bestselling Mini Naturals training treat, ideal for frequent feedings and dogs watching their waistline. Another popular choice is the new Supers treat that combines nature’s antioxidant-rich super foods with low-gluten oats for a scrumptious soft chewy snack. Additionally, Hip Action is a simple way to feed dogs joint-supporting nutrients, such as glucosamine, chondroitin and eggshell membrane, in an easy-to-feed, moist and meaty snack. Zuke’s brand new G-Zees for cats are completely grain-free, while offering glucosamine for joint support and cranberry for urinary tract support. To fully take advantage of the benefits these nutrients offer, daily treating is recommended.
