Why should I consider Longevity for my dog?
Obesity is a growing epidemic with nearly half of all dogs considered overweight or obese. Pet obesity can lead to a variety of health issues—from heart disease to diabetes to high blood pressure.
And because research has shown that lean pets are healthier pets, Longevity is formulated to provide your dog with a delicious, satisfying meal without the excess calories that can contribute to him being overweight or obese.
What is the difference between Longevity and weight loss foods?
Big name weight control foods often contain ingredients like soybean mill run, chicken by-product meal and corn gluten meal—lower quality ingredients that many pet parents want to avoid and probably not the kind of things you want to feed your dog day after day.
Longevity is made with high-quality ingredients—real whitefish is first followed by wholesome whole grains, garden veggies and fruit. They’re the kind of things you can feel good about him eating every day so he’s more likely to stay lean for life.
What if my dog isn’t overweight?
Even if your dog is at his ideal weight, it’s not uncommon for him to put on a few pounds over time. And with nearly 50% of all dogs being overweight or obese, chances are he may need to lose a few pounds at some point in time. By feeding him Longevity now, you can put your dog on the path to being lean before they ever experience weight issues.
Does BLUE Longevity make sense for puppies?
Yes. BLUE Longevity for puppies is formulated with ingredients to support his specific needs—including DHA for cognitive development and high quality protein for muscle growth—while helping to prevent him from putting on extra weight as he enters adulthood.
What are "optimal calorie" foods?
These are foods that contain fewer calories but have a high nutritional value. Optimal calorie foods include things like lean protein, as well as whole grain foods like brown rice and oatmeal, and fruits and vegetables like peas, carrots, apples and blueberries.
What are LifeSource® Bits?
LifeSource Bits contain a precise blend of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants selected by holistic veterinarians and animal nutritionists. These include ingredients that help support your dog’s immune system, promote his specific life stage requirements and maintain a healthy oxidative balance. Plus, unlike other brands that add vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, we cold-form LifeSource Bits to help maintain the potency of vitamins and antioxidants. This is an important difference between BLUE and all the other brands because other brands process their foods exclusively at high temperatures, and heat can destroy the potency of nutrients by up to 75%.
Does BLUE Longevity contain any chicken or poultry by-product meals?
BLUE Longevity does not contain chicken or poultry by-product meals. What’s more, BLUE Longevity dog food contains no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors and no corn, wheat or soy because they have been known to trigger allergies in dogs.
