Pet Tales: Kodi’s allergies led him to Precise!

Here at Precise, we want to hear from our community. Our Pet Tales blog posts come directly from customers who have submitted stories about their experience with Precise products. Click here to share your own story.

Stephanie Hendon of Dallas, Texas writes:

I wanted to take a few moments to say thank you for making such an outstanding product!

I have a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix that has an allergy to wheat and gluten foods. I went through what seemed like a million different foods trying to find the right one to no avail. One day I decided to check out my local Canine Commissary just to see what they had and an associate told me about your product. Let’s just say that now not only is Kodi a happy boy but thanks to you he is also a healthy one!!

Also, I have to say it is nice to buy food that is not only well priced and easy to find, but also local. I am a big supporter of local businesses and prefer to spend my money in the state I reside, but it is getting harder to find in my area.

Your product will be the only food I give to my dogs and the only product I will recommend to anyone who has a dog.

Thank you again. Your product has truly been a blessing!

Thanks for sharing, Stephanie! We’re glad you and Kodi are happy with Precise Pet Products!

Stephanie and Kodi get their Precise at Canine Commissary in Dallas, Texas. Visit Canine Commissary on Facebook!

Quality Time: Digestibility studies

Mike Compton is vice president of operations at Precise’s parent company, Texas Farm Products Company, and is responsible for the operations, quality assurance and nutritional content of our pet food. Each month on the blog, he shares how we keep our pet food safe and healthy. Read past Quality Time blog posts here.

In our previous Quality Time posts, we discussed developing formulas and mentioned conducting a series of tests, including digestibility studies. When we develop new formulas, we want them to taste good, but also want to make sure they are healthy for your pet’s digestive system.

Digestibility studies are important because they allow us to understand how the animals are utilizing the nutrients in the food.

The process is simple. We feed several animals for a specific period of time and then begin collecting the feces. We then test the feces to determine what nutrients were digested and what nutrients were not.

If the results of this and additional tests meet our high standards, we move the formula into full-scale production and introduce the product to our Precise fans!

Ask Our Vet: Dry skin and inflammed ears

Q: My dog has terrible dry skin and inflamed ears. I make all of his dog food and give him soap baths, fish oil, acidophilus and flaxseed to help his skin and intestines. Unfortunately, nothing is helping. How can I help him holistically?

A: I know a lot of people use the Nzymes product with great results. I have never used it, but it would be worth a try. Your next step would be to find a holistic veterinarian in your area and seek his or her advice.

Mailbag: Should I feed my dog dry or canned Precise pet food?

Each month, Marnee White, who knows Precise like the back of her hand, will answer questions we get through our customer service e-mails and phone calls.

Q: Should I feed my dog dry or canned Precise pet food?

A: Both the dry and canned formulas are designed to provide a healthy, nutritious diet for your pet. Some pet owners choose dry food for the convenience, while others opt for canned food based on their pet’s preference. One alternative would be to serve your pup a combination of the two formulas. Regardless of which option you choose, rest assured that both supply a high-quality, nutritious diet.
