Wellness® Natural Pet Food Launches the Wellness Foundation to Give Nourishment and Love to Pets Who Need it Most

 New charitable foundation partners with Best Friends Animal Society as its inaugural effort to help provide natural nutrition to more dogs and cats

The Wellness Foundation is charitable organization that was born with a singular goal in mind: to ensure that every pet on the planet is born, bred and raised with love.

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Aug. 20, 2019 – Whether they’re born into a loving family or on a journey from homelessness to a forever home, all pets’ health and happiness begins with a fundamental necessity: a meal that makes a difference. That’s why Wellness® Natural Pet Food, the maker of wholesome, nutrient-rich, natural food and treats for cats and dogs, launched the Wellness® Foundation, a new charitable organization that provides natural nourishment to pets in need.

The Wellness Foundation was born with a singular goal in mind: to ensure that every pet on the planet is born, bred and raised with love. Part of that mission includes helping homeless pets begin life in a new home with the nutrition they need to feel their best. To do that, the Wellness Foundation has partnered with Best Friends Animal Society, America’s leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters, by providing rescue pets in Best Friends lifesaving centers across the country with Wellness food and treats to ensure that with each bite they take, they are one step closer to a happier future.

A recent national survey[1] conducted by Wellness Natural Pet Food found that the majority of American pet parents (76 percent) say they believe in the healing power of natural nutrition and high-quality ingredients for pets when they are sick. What’s more, almost all (92 percent) of respondents have proactively turned to natural foods as a solution to help their pet feel better when they’ve been under the weather.

“One of the things that makes pets so special is their ability to love unconditionally. At Wellness, we’ve always believed that loving them back starts with making sure their bowls are filled with the best possible nutrition,” said Camelle Kent, Chief Executive Officer of WellPet, maker of Wellness Natural Pet Food. “The Wellness Foundation not only allows us to ensure more pets across the country have that same opportunity to be healthy and happy, but it also invites pet parents to join the movement. By feeding Wellness to their own pets at home, pet parents will now know that they’re enabling us to do the same for pets in need.”

The Wellness Foundation partnership with Best Friends includes taking on the responsibility of being the official pet food partner. By donating food and treats to the thousands of dogs and cats in the care of Best Friends’ lifesaving centers, the Wellness Foundation will help fuel their ability to thrive in a new home. The Wellness Foundation has also committed to volunteering at Best Friends’ centers and events to further spread awareness of pet adoption across the U.S.

“At Best Friends, we’re on a mission to achieve no-kill in America’s shelters nationwide by 2025, and we believe we’ll be able to do so with the help of partners like the Wellness Foundation. We’re thrilled to work with Wellness not only to provide our pets with nutrition but also to have a partner who is equally committed to spreading awareness about pet adoption,” says Julie Castle, Chief Executive Officer of Best Friends Animal Society.

To celebrate the partnership, Wellness Natural Pet Food will launch a co-branded treat with Best Friends: Wellness® CORE® Bestie Bars. Packed with protein and superfood ingredients and without grains, corn, soy or artificial colors or flavors, these treats are inscribed with sweet sayings to spread the love with furry best friends and will be available this fall.

Each package of treats calls on pet parents to spread the word by posting a picture of their dog with their Bestie Bars on social media with #SaveABestie and @wellnesspetfood, adopt or donate by visiting BestFriends.org, or join the movement at WellnessFoundation.org.

 

About Wellness®:

Smart Hemp™ CBD Can Help Mitigate Pet Allergies

Using Smart Hemp CBD for Cami has helped her knee surgery recovery, and she has been sneezing less. Around this time, she usually will have eye discharge from pollen and sometimes a rash on her belly. We have been using Smart Hemp CBD for almost a month now! I just put about 10 drops in her food in the morning and this season has been better than ever.

Allergy season! Like their human owners, pets can suffer the same discomforts of allergies in many of the same ways.  Spring can be a difficult time for pets with allergies.  Blooming trees, high pollen counts, even grass can affect our pets. Smart Hemp™ CBD has sixteen product options; specifically formulated for pets, veterinarian approved, sourced from carefully screened suppliers, and trackable from seed to final product. From tinctures, to soft bites, and even topical balmsSmart Hemp™ CBD has your pet covered with the highest-quality ingredients that contain no pesticides, artificial chemicals, or other contaminants.

“Lucy, our six-year-old white lab, was always getting ‘hotspots,'” said Lori M. from Bloomington, Indiana. “We started using Smart Hemp tincture twice daily. This really helped with her scratching. It wasn’t until I started using the Smart Hemp topical pet balm that I really started seeing some great results. The hotspots stopped oozing and smelling. I would recommend Smart Hemp CBD products and will continue to use them with Lucy.”

 

Developed under the direction of a veterinarian, these products are specifically crafted to support relief in our treasured cats and dogs. Each product is produced from high-quality hemp and is THC free, non-GMO, organically grown, and manufactured in the United States.

“Seasonal allergies can be hard on a pet and we want to provide an option for owners,” said Bill Hansen, founder of Smart Hemp CBD.  “Alleviation of allergy conditions will only help the pet have a better quality of life.  Tinctures are a good option to consider as the drops begin to absorb into the system at the tongue or gum line.  So support happens quickly.  Balms are a great option for specific hot spots, itching and bug bites.”

Whether seasonal or annual, Smart Hemp™ CBD products can help your pet out in their time of need.

Smart Hemp CBD products are supplements and should not be substituted for medications your veterinarian is prescribing. And always, consult your veterinarian before starting a CBD program in place of a prescribed medication. Learn more by visiting MySmartHempCBD.com.

Napping in the Sun with Gold Paw Series Sun Shield Tee

When we moved from New York City to Las Vegas, it was a complete opposite in concern for the weather! We had to buy all kind of boots and coats for Jacob when we lived in NYC because of the winter and here in Vegas, Cami keeping cool and sun safety is our #1 concern for her. She loves getting into the pool once it gets above 85F and the summer sun is crazy. We have to walk her at 5 am and after dark in the middle of the heat wave. Even the pavement is burning hot when it gets to over 100F here.


Before Swim season and during Spring, Cami’s favorite thing to do is to sit by the pool. She gets overheated and has to come inside. Letting her wear this Sun Shield Tee by Goldpaw Series has given her more outside time this morning! She has been so bummed since her knee surgery 🙁 I thought this will surely cheer her up! Thank you to our friends from Goldpaw Series for sending Cami this in size 28 Coral.

Sun Shield Tee Fabric – An ultra smooth, lightweight, breathable athletic jersey that features a UPF 50+ rating and blocks 98% of harmful UV rays. This is achieved through a tight mechanical weave, so sensitive skin won’t react to a chemical wash. It significantly reduces heat absorption by reflecting heat away from the body, and is efficient at wicking away moisture. A soothing and cool to the touch feel. Found in: The Sun Shield Tee

Our Sun Shield Tee is silky soft, lightweight stretch jersey with a UPF-50 rating that blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. It is not a chemical treatment – it’s a mechanical quality of the yarn so the protection won’t diminish with washing. Super comfortable indoors and out and perfect for all sorts of applications beyond sun protection too: skin conditions, wound care, topical medications, works great as an anti-anxiety calming aid that can be worn all day.

They really reduce heat absorption too: We tested our black Lab, Luke, out in the sun with an infrared thermometer gun and found his fur was more than 40 degrees cooler under the Tee than without – it’s wearable shade! Want extra cooling? Get it wet and your pup can enjoy the evaporative cooling effect!

Recommended For: Sun protection, regulating body temperature, indoor wear, outdoor wear, protecting skin conditions or wounds, mild anxiety, increasing cuteness

Wear Tip: The center chest seam is designed to be on the outside – we want pets to enjoy maximum comfort, especially in that tender area.

Harness Help: These close fitting pullovers are perfect worn under a harness, with no adjustment needed. No fussing with ill-placed harness openings in this snuggy wonder! Plus, wearing this under a harness has an added benefit of reducing or eliminating chaffing!

Pipolino Mobile and Adjustable Food Dispenser Provides Pets with a Healthy and Natural way of Eating

Many animals have a tendency to devour their food during mealtimes. Pets that eat rapidly are more likely to face various health issues like choking, vomiting, gastrointestinal discomfort or food bloat, to name a few. Designed by a veterinarian, Pipolino’s mobile and adjustable dry food dispenser allows pets to find food as they would in nature, which promotes both physical and mental balance. Animals have the ability to roll Pipolino on the ground or in trough in order to dispense kibble slowly and chase or “hunt” for their foodPipolino provides countless benefits and helps to avoid many common problems today’s pets face such as boredom, over eating, obesity, bad digestion, physical inactivity, aggression, and the ingesting of foreign bodies. 

Eating quickly is a fairly common behavior for pets. Depending on the animal, there are many reasons as to why. Take the canine for example; a dog may eat rapidly due to the competitive instinct that is often seen in the wild when wolves bring down prey. The animal that eats faster is in a better position to survive and pass along its genes. This scenario is especially seen in multi-dog householdswhere speed eating tendencies are increased due to competing with their fellow pack members. 

 

Whether a dog is eating too quickly because he’s in competition mode or simply indulges too fast because he loves the taste of his food; not taking the time to chew larger pieces of kibble can cause them to ingest a significant amount of air. When this occurs, the food will most likely come back up by regurgitation or vomiting. After this happens a pet owner may feel uncertain if their dog or cat has received an adequate amount of nutrition during their meal time. Vomiting will also leave the animal hungry more frequently throughout the day, which can lead to a desire for more food and increased begging. Let’s face it, most pet owners are weak when it comes to those adorable begging eyes! With 80 million U.S dogs and cats at risk from obesity, it’s important that pet parents stay mindful of their pet’s meal intake and avoid overfeeding. 

For over ten years, Pipolino has been the only way of feeding pets that combines all individual advantages, without the disadvantages of bowls, anti-glutton bowls, fixed and mobile food distributors. Pipolino is the only anti-glutton bowl that provides physical activity and slow enough ingestion that avoids overconsumption, satisfies the appetite and improves digestionIn fact, Pipolino is taught in French Veterinary Schools for the prevention and treatment of excess weight and digestive disorders, as well as behavioral diseases such as bulimia, obesity, dirtiness, aggressiveness, depression, inactivity.

 

Additional Features of Pipolino Include

 

• Fits all brands (Royal Canin, Hills, Friskies, Frolic, Proplan, etc.), sizes and shapes of croquettes, pellets, or any other dry food. 
• Contains a quantity of pellets allowing to feed one or many animals (depending on the choice of the model) during a meal, for one day, or for a weekend. 
• Enables to modify, by simple adjustment, the ease of distribution of food, which trains the animal gradually and gently to eat slowly.
• Designed so that all the croquettes coming out are immediately eaten, don’t scatter on the floor, don’t get crushed and don’t collect dust on the ground. 
• It has been designed in order to not roll under the furniture where the animal would not be able to recover it. 
• Made of shocks-resistant, recyclable, food-grade quality materials, which ensure a very good conservation of the inner food.

 

Retailing for $24.90, Pipolino is affordable to all budgets. Pet families utilizing Pipolino daily will have great peace of mind knowing that they are investing in their pet’s mental and physical health, as well as save money spent on pet food thanks to its decreased food consumption featuresPipolino offers a two year (parts and labor) guarantee for any defect or component breakage under normal conditions of use. 

 

Pipolino is currently available on Amazon.comhttps://www.amazon.com/PIPOLINO-M-Mobile-Dispenser-Well-being-Health/dp/B00B321B1Q
