Family Matters: Healthy and Smelling Good Dog


I will admit that I hadn’t thought too much about nutrition for my healthy dog until I adopted a sickly cat.

Now that the cat is happy and healthy (largely thanks to a great diet), I turned my attention to the dog. Now, he’s also happy and healthy, but there are some things that could stand improvement, like the way he smells. Sorry, Astro, it’s true (I hope he’s not reading this).

A good diet can improve the quality of your dog’s skin and coat. It can also help with shedding, itchiness and odor. In comes Freshpet® foods, available in the refrigerated case on the pet food aisle at Brookshire’s.

I used their website to find out what foods to feed Astro based on our needs. Then, I went to Brookshire’s and picked them up! It was so simple, and it took all the guesswork out of trying to figure out what to feed my loyal companion and four-legged friend.

Wouldn’t you know it, his coat improved within a week. He started smelling like a puppy again, that fresh scent that comes from good nutrition and a clean gut. His coat became more glossy. He also sheds less, and he smells so good.

Freshpet®, available at Brookshire’s, is a great supplement to the high-quality dry foods that I already feed Astro. He loves the Freshpet® Select Stews Grain Free Beef and Pumpkin Recipe for Dogs, and he devours it in a matter of seconds after it hits his bowl.
