Janie Heatherly writes:

My 11-year-old Golden Retriever, Brandy, has a systematic yeast condition and has always struggled to stay healthy. For the past eight years, I have taken her to the vet for multiple antibiotics and steroid shots, but her condition only worsened. After much research, I began feeding Brandy enzymes and changed her food to Precise SensiCare Formula. Since changing her food eight months ago, she is like a different dog!

Now, I have switched all of my dogs to Precise SensiCare Formula, too! Thank you for saving my dog’s life and for making all of my dogs much healthier!

Thank you Janie for sharing your story! We are delighted that Precise Pet Products have given Brandy a new lease on life!

Pet Tales: Meet Lucille, the lovable Border Collie from Louisiana!

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.

Bill McFarlin of Flint, Texas writes:

“My Border Collie, Lucille, came to me from a southern Louisiana shelter. She was only a year old and in poor shape – not much hair and just a mess. I took her home and discovered she had food allergies. We switched her over to Precise Holistic Complete, and once we were able to control her food intake, her coat and attitude completely changed.

Lucille, now six years old, competes in agility events at the highest level for the American Kennel Club and United States Dog Agility Association. Last year, she earned the title Agility Dog Champion! She also loves to entertain at schools, civic groups, fairs, festivals and pet expos with her disc tricks. She usually brings the house to its feet when she vaults from my back toward the disc!

Lucille loves the crunch of Precise Holistic Complete. I use the food as a treat while training, and she loves to find the food when I hide it. Her coat is very shiny thanks to Precise Holistic Complete. People are always commenting on it! When we attend agility events, I feed her a small amount that morning and continue to feed her small amounts during the day to maintain her energy level.

Precise Holistic Complete is very recognizable in the store. I can easily see what bag to get as soon as I walk in. My favorite feature is the handle on the bag. It is just AWESOME!”

Bill and Lucille find their Precise products at Bed, Bath N’ Bonz in Flint, Texas.

Thanks for sharing your story! We’re glad Precise keeps your spunky pup happy and healthy!

Ingredient Insight: Ester-C®

We’re very proud of the premium ingredients found in our foods. In our Ingredient Insight series, our in-house vet Dr. Lisa Drapela provides an in-depth look at how these ingredients protect and boost your pets’ health and energy, why we chose them and what makes them unique. Read all of our Ingredient Insight blog posts here.

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the vital role vitamin C plays in a healthy human diet. While vitamin C is not a “required” nutrient for our pets, supplementation can be as beneficial for them as it is for us.  All of our Precise formulas feature a unique source of vitamin C for your pets: Ester-C®. Ester-C® Calcium Ascorbate is a special form of vitamin C that is important in many of the daily body functions.

Ester-C® promotes higher levels and longer retention of vitamin C in the body, providing support for the immune system. It has also been found to help decrease arthritis pain. Its water-based manufacturing process results in a pH neutral, or non-acidic, product that is easy on sensitive stomachs.

Want to know more? Check out the Ester-C® webpage to read all about its benefits and learn why we consider it an essential ingredient in our pet food.

Great Dane Lady Approved: Precise Seniscare for skin issues

The Great Dane Lady, Linda Arndt, has more than 38 years of experience as a canine nutritional consultant and breeder. In our Great Dane Lady Approved series, Linda will talk about her research and work with Precise. You can explore Linda’s website at GreatDaneLady.com.

Skin issues are one of the most common health problems for pets today, and there are few things more frustrating than battling your pet’s stubborn symptoms. These issues are often mistakenly diagnosed as food allergies. Food allergies in pets share similar symptoms with systematic yeast infections, so it is important to consider both possibilities. Here’s a story from a fellow pet owner who switched to Precise as part of her dog’s treatment for food allergies:

A pet owner noticed disquieting changes in her once energized Great Dane. After a trip to the vet and months of irritated skin, ears and feet, she began treating her lethargic pup for food allergies. The antibiotics seemed to work in the short term, but symptoms returned thereafter. After much frustration and research, she came across an article on GreatDaneLady.com that recommended trying Precise to treat yeast problems. One month after switching to Precise Lamb & Rice Sensicare and completing a healthy skin kit, the Great Dane showed noticeable improvement. Three months later, all symptoms were cured.

In my 38+ years devoted to the wellness and nutrition of large and giant breeds, it’s always a pleasure to hear how Precise products are improving your pet’s health! Our high-quality, nutritious pet food is made to promote pet health and wellness. A healthy pet is a happy pet after all!

Mailbag: Why does Precise periodically change or discontinue formulas?

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: Why does Precise periodically change or discontinue its formulas?

A: As a company that actually researches, studies and produces pet food, it is our responsibility to update formulations based on nutritional science that is proven to sustain longer and healthier lifestyles for the majority of pets. At times, some pets may have specific issues that our formulations may not address, but on the whole, we hope to bring forth pet formulations that address the majority of pets needs. Therefore, bringing new brands and improving existing brands may take place at times in order for Precise to continue to be at the forefront in pet food science.
