Halo is a popular pet food brand in America. The company has been in business for more than 30 years. Throughout this time, nutrition has been the focal point. Particularly, the use of whole meats. In fact, the company’s ingredient philosophy is: Only WHOLE Meats. This is the healthy, natural way to feed dogs. The blend includes salmon, chicken, lamb, venison, turkey, and beef.
These meats are slow-cooked at low temperatures to optimize flavor and retain nutrients. Since the dog food only consists of whole meats, up to 16 times fewer ash is produced when compared to rendered meats. There aren’t any meat meals in Halo products and Halo never uses rendered meats. Plus, the animal stock is responsibly sourced. There are no animal byproducts, and Halo doesn’t use growth hormones. The dog food is also free of artificial colors, preservatives, and flavors.
Simply open a bag and pour an ample amount of dry Kibble or moist Stews. The bowl will look like something out of a commercial. It will be overflowing with dog food that is perfectly crafted for the appetite of the animal. The dry Kibble is easy to clean up and if the right amount is given to the dog, there won’t be any left after the meal. In fact, the dog may want more. Follow the serving directions on the bag to avoid overfeeding. The same is true for the moist stews. The pet food will provide a satisfying meal that is designed for the dog’s palate. Not only will they have a great time eating, they will stay healthy at the same time.
Halo dog food is highly digestibility. The dog’s digestive track can easily and healthily digest the food without any problems. In fact, the results from an independent testing firm that measured the total dry matter digested from several leading dog food brands found that Halo had the highest digestibility rating. It was rated as ‘high quality’ with a score of 85.8. It out scored several best selling premium natural brands.
What’s found in Halo?
Halo dog food has tons of nutritious ingredients. In addition to the highly digestible whole proteins, there’s vitamin and mineral-rich vegetables including green beans, sweet potatoes, cranberries, apples, blueberries, carrots, zucchini, and alfalfa.
Here’s a list of vitamins and minerals from one of the popular dog food products (Spot’s Stew Wholesome Chicken Recipe): Calcium Sulfate, Taurine, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Vitamins (Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Niacin, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Choline Bitartrate, Ascorbic Acid, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Biotin), Minerals (Manganese Proteinate, Cobalt Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Magnesium Proteinate, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite). Some other notable nutrients include: Omega 6 Fatty Acids 3.0% (Min), Omega 3 Fatty Acids* 0.48% (Min), Taurine* 0.1% (Min). Omega-6 fatty acids are part of the repair process during physical activity. Cells are repaired by these molecules.
There are pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids aren’t synthesized by the body in mammals. The short-chain version of the molecule is available in food, and mammals can use it to make longer chain omega-3 fatty acids. Taurine is the major component of bile and has several functions including conjugation of bile acids, antioxidants, osmoregulation, membrane stabilization, and modulation of calcium signaling. With all this nutrition, your dog is sure to look and feel good.
A proper diet is key to a long life. And the food the dog eats needs to be edible. Here’s a list of proteins and their digestibility index: Egg whites – 1.00 Muscle meats (chicken, beef, lamb) – 0.92 Organ meats – 0.90 Milk, cheese – 0.89 Fish – 0.75 Soy – 0.75 Rice – 0.72 Oats – 0.66 Yeast – 0.63 Wheat – 0.60 Corn – 0.54 Halo has the highest digestibility index of any other brand. This is due partly to the inclusion of bacterial products including Dried B. longum Fermentation Product, Dried L. acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus faecium Fermentation Product, and Dried L. plantarum Fermentation Product.
You can be confident that the ingredients in Halo pet foods are healthy and nutritious. The company meets the nutritional requirements set by the AAFCO Dog Nutrient Profile for all stages of life. Halo also promises complete satisfaction or they will issue a refund of the purchase price or replace the dog food.
With every purchase of Halo pet food, you can help abandoned dogs and the shelters that keep them alive. Halo will donate a bowl to a shelter every time you buy. This will help feed hungry animals and lessen the burden on organizations. Animal welfare is an important issue in society. The World Organization for Animal Health is an intergovernmental organization responsible for improving animal health across the world. One notable branch is the World Animal Protection group, whose mission is to educate the public on the importance of good animal welfare.
