A Dog’s New Year Resolution.

written by: Side By Side Pet Food

This Year, Help Your Pet Get Healthier & Live Longer

Take The Whole Food Pledge!

Ahhh New Year’s Resolutions – a time to eat healthier, cut the sugar, ditch the booze, sleep more, get to the gym, floss (your teeth not the dance, but if that’s one of your resolutions… that’s cool too, you do you!) Every year millions of people make a commitment to themselves to get healthier, but what about our pets? Often times we forget to apply these same philosophies to our beloved fur babies, but not this year! This year is going to be the year your dog will feel better than ever, jump higher, run faster & add years to their life. Seem crazy? It’s not. The length & quality of their life starts in their bowls and in their bellies.
