Living a fit and healthy lifestyle includes regular exercise, being active and understanding proper nutrition to fuel your body and give it the energy it needs to get you through each day.
Humans, for the most part, have this figured out, but it’s somewhat of an afterthought (or not a thought at all) when it comes to our pets. That’s why Nulo Pet Food is changing the conversation around pet food and hopes to draw attention to the parallels between healthy human dieting and healthy pet food nutrition.
In the same way that humans need to refuel after a hard workout with proper levels of protein and good carbs, our pets need the right fuel for their diets. They burn energy and lead active lives, and the only way they can ensure they’re getting the right fuel for their bodies is if their owner chooses the right food to put into their bowls. Nulo partners with elite athletes who have spent their entire careers focusing on what goes into their bodies and how that food fuels them. These athletes understand proper nutrition, and now, they want to help educate pet parents on how nutrition is just as important for our four-legged friends.
It’s up to the pet parents to ensure they’re choosing high-quality ingredients for their pets, and unfortunately, that is a harder choice than it should be. The pet food industry is saturated with misinformation, and consumers are left not knowing who or what to believe. Fortunately, Nulo wants to break through the clutter and share some truths about proper pet food nutrition and quality, trusted ingredients.
Nulo’s ambassadors, like Michael Phelps, Jordan Hicks, Tara Lipinski and Gus Kenworthy know that the food they put in their pets bowls is going to translate into their pet feeling better and living healthier on a day-to-day basis. That’s why they choose Nulo.
Nulo’s ingredients are high in animal-based protein, low in carbohydrates and have a low glycemic index to promote a healthy body condition and stable energy. Cats and dogs are natural-born carnivores, so Nulo does not use any vegetable protein concentrates such as pea protein or potato protein, which do not have the adequate nutritional values, absorption or digestibility your pet needs. Cats and dogs have similar glycemic responses to carbohydrates as humans do, so Nulo uses ingredients such as oats, barley, sweet potatoes and chickpeas rather than high-carb ingredients such as white potatoes, white rice and tapioca. Additionally, Nulo’s recipes include a human-grade, patented probiotic which is a functional ingredient that aids with digestion to ensure your pet is healthy long into their older years of life.
Our pets rely on us to make the best decisions for their health and happiness, especially when it comes to the food we choose for them. Whether they’re running alongside you at the park or snuggling up next to you on the couch, they need the right nutrients to live a healthy life, and their only source of fuel is the food they’re given twice or three times a day. It’s up to us as pet parents to choose the best possible food for them, just as we would for any other member of our family or for ourselves. Our pets are more than just our friends. They’re family too, and they should eat just as healthy as we do. With Nulo, you can fuel their inner athlete and live healthier together with your pet.
