My love of my Pets

A true pet lover knows another pet lover.

Shout out to Purina Beneful


BENEFUL is the right stuff for my ladies!!!

Shout to Purina-Beneful

I Love this product for my ladies, babies ok as one of my friend’s would say, “Baby Mule, “ so my children are large girls and I love them all. I have three babies, Tippy (10 years old) she is part Labrador and Great Dane, Tippy is large in size and heart she is a beautiful black lady, then there is my Lady Love (Thank you Kenny Rogers), she is the first dog that I raised at home with no work involved in my life. Lady is my yellow Labrador and part chow (she is my big boned child) six years old and brings up the rear is Hailee who is 17 months old the Thoroughbred chocolate Labrador and a pistol to handle at times. I am raising her too. We lost of Labrador of 20 years and the next few later we got Hailee. Her parents are great at times but they baby her like a real child. Miss Hailee is an eater of anything always has something in her mouth. She would eat 24/7 if we let her and she burns it up chasing the rabbits from the woods behind our home. Me I am the GIT (Grandmother In Training). That is my official title given to me by my son (who is studying to be a great Chiropractor).

I order my dog food on Amazon most of the time because my son and daughter-in-law are busy most of the time and forget the food so this lets me be home to get the product and my son places into the proper canisters. Since starting on this dog food over 9 months ago I have seen a great improvement into the lives of these pets. Tippy would not move much and Lady was about the same, Hailee nothing stopped her from moving except sleep. Yes, I bought all of the expensive foods for the pets and all I saw was my money going down, down the drain. Beneful has given new life to ladies and I am “THANKFUL” for this product.

The value for what you get in this product is awesome and quality.

There are many quality pet food companies in this market but the Purina brand is still standing tall. Some have thought that Purina’s products were sub standard I will say that my pets thrive on this product. Yes I am one of those who brought higher priced dog food and belief that paying more is better than paying a reasonable price for food for my pet. Yes they are my children now and I want what I can afford to be the best I can get. Why pay more for a good product when you and pay reasonable for a good product. Paying more does not mean paying for a better blend of a product.

Beneful Ingredients

Let’s look at the overall line of product compared to Beneful. Meat, chicken, corn and flour, sounds like a recipe for cake making but it’s not some of has vitamins, omega fatty acids, protein and vitamins, crunchy rice, nutrition-rich vegetables and salmon to help with the pets immune system theis the of the ingredients in Beneful.


According the Purina website these are the true ingredients:

“Ground Yellow Corn, Chicken By-Product Meal, Corn Gluten Meal, Whole Wheat Flour, Animal Fat Preserved With Mixed Tocopherols (Source Of Vitamin E), Salmon, Brewers Rice, Soybean Meal, Sugar, Sorbitol, Tricalcium Phosphate, Soybean Oil, Animal Digest, Water, Salt, Phosphoric Acid, Potassium Chloride, Dicalcium Phosphate, Sorbic Acid (A Preservative), L-Lysine Monohydrochloride, Calcium Carbonate, Dried Carrots, Green Beans, Calcium Propionate (A Preservative), Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Added Color (Yellow 5, Red 40, Yellow 6, Blue 2), DL-Methionine, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Vitamin A Supplement, Manganese Sulfate, Niacin, Vitamin B-12 Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Biotin, Garlic Oil, Thiamine Hydrochloride, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Vitamin D-3 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (Source Of Vitamin K Activity), Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite.”

Final Thoughts

In addition to this I place some high grain rice to the dog food and I get empty bowls each time. I know they love the rice but it is the final component to making everything taste better. I don’t give rice each time just two times a week to help them stay fuller. I know I am spoiling my children but they are the babies of the household and I want them to have the best.

Yes, I have hear and read the stories on what happen to the great company back in 2013 but everyone and I mean everyone has a little bump now and then, so Purina had there’s. Good job on doing better in coming back with a BANG. I am sorry for those who lost their pets in the past recall and hope that the healing has been started for us. A loss of a pet is a real loss and takes time to recover from; no other pet can take his or her place in your life and heart. I too have had this pain and it is true, “that time heals the pain.”

All I can say to Purina is Keep up the good work with giving those pets on your product some of the best quality food. In the past Purina was my brand and this time I am staying.

Until next blog this is GIT signing off.
