My dogs are my family! I have two miniature pinschers, and it’s important to us to feed them healthy food, and to avoid table scraps, as our vet has advised. Also, our older dog has to have low calorie dog food. So knowing how to choose the best dog food for my pets is really important.
When I was introduced to Petco’s Wholehearted Dog Food, I was excited that it was nutritional, affordable, and the beef flavor was lower calorie. They also offer a specific dog food for small breed dogs!
What should you look for when choosing a dog food for your four-legged kids!
How to Choose a Dog Food
Variety: Sometimes when you are doggy owner, the vet has to change up your dog’s diet a bit. Usually you start with puppy food and advance to adult food, for example. Or if your dog gains weight, like our little dog Lucky did when she was five years old, you may have to switch to a lean dog food. Wholehearted’s beef and pea flavored are a few less calories than their other flavor and it works great for my dogs! They also offer wet and dry food.
Ingredients: Petco’s Wholehearted Dog Food is nutritious, too, containing probiotics, omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals. It’s important to me that my dogs’ food is good for both their general health and their digestion.
Affordable: I left cost for last, because I will buy more expensive dog food for my dogs if they need it! So it’s a BONUS that Petco’s new Wholehearted Dog Food is really affordable! It also comes in various sized bags—for different sized dogs and budgets. You earn rewards when you shop at Petco, as long as you participate in their rewards program.
Petco Wholehearted Dog Food:
Picking up dog food at our local Petco is really convenient. I can run in and get exactly what I need, save money, and even spoil my dogs a bit!

Seems like it’s at least worth a try… our rescue is small breed and coming off of a grain-free diet, so this should make for a slightly easier transition on his stomach!

It will help my dog because he is a older dog
Jenny Gunnoe says
From the first picture, it looks like this food is naturally colored? If so, then it would be good for my dogs, because two of the three have gotten horrible ear infections in the past. My vet swore that it was from food and treats with red dye. Since I stopped feeding them foods with red dye, they haven’t had ear infections. So I have to be careful what I feed them, and this looks like a great choice.
This will be great for my dogs since they do better on a grain-free diet.
chris z says
itr will help my dog eat grain free

I’m loving all of the new, healthy options for pet food! When we had a dog, the food was known to contain poor ingredients and fillers and we had to buy special food. I’m glad good food is accessible to all pets and at all price points now.

My pomchi was told he needed to lose weight. He loves going to petco, and the treats they have. He also has had a few samples of they food. He seems to like it. This would probably give him more energy and get back to a healthy weight.
