Danielle Pellicci of BlackFoot Labradors in South Carolina writes:

I’d like you to know that Precise is “fueling” our valuable competitive hunt test and field trial Labrador Retrievers.

 About a year ago, we switched to Precise and I have noticed marked improvements in the coat conditions in a variety of our dogs at our kennel. Stool output is low and muscle tone and endurance levels are maintained beautifully. Pending the season and each individual dog’s metabolism, we feed our labs either the Precise Competition or Endurance formulas. We can switch from one formula to the other without upsetting digestion, which is a great asset as we move from a slow to busy hunting competition season.

We also feed our 11-year-old Parson Russell terrier, who is retired from agility and earth dog competition, Precise Holistic Grain Free formula. He has been literally at death’s door twice for a medical condition so dietary requirements are essential for him.

In addition to our “pedigreed pack,” my husband and I rescue one dog a year (rehabilitate/train/re-home) and recently sent home dog number 13 for us! George, a Miniature Australian Shepherd mix puppy, was the second of our rescues to be nurtured back to health by Precise Small and Medium Breed Puppy formula. His condition was severe when we found him, and in a matter of a month of great nutrition and veterinary assistance, he was healthy enough to be sent to his forever home. His new family intends to keep him on Precise food.

We at BlackFoot Labradors do not take what we feed our dogs lightly. Precise Pet food formulas fuel our dogs who are not just our livelihood, but also a VERY important part of our LIVES.

 We are thrilled to have found a brand that all of our dogs can eat. 

Thank you, Danielle!  It is wonderful to hear that the BlackFoot Labrador pack is doing well, looking sharp, and enjoying Precise! We appreciate your commitment to your dogs health and well being, and for your years of rescue efforts.  Best of luck with your upcoming competitions.

Quality Time: An Introduction

Sitting outside of our on-site Quality Assurance Laboratory in Nacogdoches, Texas, there’s a single park bench similar to the one you’ll find at the bottom of our website, precisepet.com:

It doesn’t get a lot of use, since we take food safety and quality very serious here at Precise and are always busy in the lab. We have a team of people working to make sure our food is safe for our customers’ pets, and quality pet food begins with quality ingredients.

As vice-president of operations for Texas Farm Products, the parent company of Precise Pet, I am responsible for the operations, quality assurance and nutritional content of our pet food. I’ve been with Texas Farm Products for more than 30 years. I began working at here part-time in high school, loading feed onto customer trucks as orders were received.

After attending college, I returned as laboratory supervisor and became VP of operations in 2005. I currently serve on the regulatory affairs committee of the Pet Food Institute and the nutrition council of the American Feed Industry Association.

Here on The Dish, I’m going to introduce you to the stringent safety measures we take to make our food the best. I look forward to sharing with you about our commitment to quality and nutrition.

Next stop, SuperZoo

It’s hard to believe that it’s halfway through September – where did the summer go?

Although we’ll miss the sun and sand, we’re very, very excited that the pet tradeshow SuperZoo is almost here. On Saturday, most of our team will be headed to Las Vegas to meet with retailers, distributors and media to talk about our new Precise Holistic Complete formulations for dogs and cats. If you’ll be there, Sept. 14-16, be sure to stop by our booth #2523 on Nature’s Pathway.

Here are a few of the fun things you’ll find at our booth:

  • Of course, we’ll have the entire new Precise Holistic Complete line at our booth. Stop by to learn all about its one-of-a-kind features and ingredients, such as sustainable DHAgold® omega-3s to support cognitive learning, and probiotic Bacillus coagulans to aid digestion. In addition, you can get a feel for the new bags, which feature side handles for easier carrying and pouring, and slide-closure tops.
  • In addition to our new product line, we’ll also have samples and giveaways at the booth.
  • If you’ve had time to check out our spiffy new website, our booth will feel pretty familiar. We like to think it will be like a walk in the park – literally, with grass, blue sky, clouds and a park bench.
  • We’re very excited about our custom Twitterwall that will fill up the TV screen hanging on the outside of our booth. However, it’s not just any Twitterwall: A cast of animated dogs and cats will pop up and deliver tweets anytime @PrecisePet, #precisepet or #superzoo is mentioned. Stop by and watch your tweets fill up the screen.
  • Linda Arndt, better known as “The Great Dane Lady,” will also be at our booth during SuperZoo. Linda serves as our Canine Nutritional Consultant, and we worked closely with her to develop our formulations. She is a wealth of information when it comes to nutrition for dogs, so feel free to pick her brain at our booth.
  • Of course, our team will also be on-site live tweeting and blogging the event. Follow along here on The Dish, @PrecisePet and on Facebook.
