Sooo today's blog post is about Lulu and her diet.
I've had the opportunity to work with Smily360 on a campaign for Lulu. Lulu is a rescue dog that has been a fixture in my life for the past year and a half. I love her to pieces to and I'm always mindful of what goes into her little tummy. So when we received the sampling of Purina One True Instinct! Grain-free
Day 1: Taste
Since Lulu has had gastrointestinal issues before, whenever I'm introducing a new food item, I transition her handfuls at a time mixed in with her "normal" food.
Opening the bag sounded just like her treat bag when its being opened and I think she was overly excited at the thought of getting a snack. She ate it right up, licking her lips and all.
Day 7: Energy
Lulu is a Manchester TERRIER mix, emphasis on the Terrier so low energy has never been an issue for her! I've observed her doing circuits (literally about a dozen time) around our moving boxes and all... (post on that exciting/exhausting move to follow). Continued high energy and excitement!
Day 14: Digestibility
We're about half way through with our challenge and she has practically fully transitioned to Purina One: True Instinct. I continue with her normal feedings of a cup in the morning and 1/2 a cup in the evening. Except for the setback. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen that Miss Lulu unfortunately got into a bag of semi-chocolate chips which resulted into an emergency vet visit at 3 am. During this week, we modified her meals to pull back to a more bland diet to help soothe her stomach back to normal. Sigh. But before and after those modified days, she ate it well and continued to enjoy it.
Day 21: Bright Eyes, Shiny Skin and Coat
Lulu has a bright glossy shiny black coat and her eyes-- you know how they say its a window into the soul: this bright eyed girl is most definitely a happy spirit! I've not noticed any drastic changes in her coat over the past couple of weeks, its maintained its glossiness so I'm confident that her diet and coconut oil are working wonders!
Day 28: Dental Health
Lulu is a nibbler, she loves to gently bite on my hand and I ever the curious pet mom, use these opportunities to check out her gums and teeth. Definitely strong, definitely clean. I'm really satisfied with how its meshed and enhanced her overall well-being.
Although I've received this product as a free sample, I would consider it in store. The promise of grain-free, omega 3 and real meat are important to me when I choose food for Lulu. Having completed the 28-day challenge, Purina One gets a thumbs up and a recommendation.
