Life’s Abundance Pet Foods and Treats

I received an abundant supply of samples of Dog and Cat Food products from an online company, www.PremiumPetFoodBiz.com. I have both cats and a dog, so I gave each animal little test bites of each sample sent.

Mr. Moo is my newest cat and a former feral, downgraded to stray, and then adapting to domestic life, but he is extremely finicky. He also samples every cat dish in our home, making sure he’s got the best food in his dish. As a result, he is a little on the heavy side. I am now monitoring his food intake and making him exercise.

Dodger weighs only 7 pounds, so protein and wet food are in her diet. Neptune is 13 and healthy and I want to keep him this way.

Neptune, my deaf, geriatric cat, immediately said he loved the dry kibble of Life’s Abundance Healthy Cat Food, while Mr. Moo wasn’t initially impressed. After we ran out of the dry kibble Neptune went on a hunger strike, so I had to place an order for a 16.5 pound bag of dry kibble. Luckily it arrived in 3 days, before Neptune could die of starvation, and immediately upon setting the bag down, Neptune jumped all over it and insisted I open it and give him a bowl full; Which I did, because I wanted him to eat. Two weeks later and Neptune still gets super excited to eat his new food, every meal.

Life’s Abundance dry cat food is specially formulated, balancing the nutritional needs of a cat with optimum health. Vitamins, antioxidants, probiotics, proteins (fish), and green foods are among the chief ingredients. In order to preserve and maintain nutritional value, they use a fast-cook process.

They recommend feeding a cat Neptune’s size 1/3 to ½ cup of food a day, and his average daily intake is right in between those two figures.

Now Mr. Moo had noticed that Neptune was getting different food, and he wanted to eat out of Neptune’s dish, so I put some of this health food in Mr. Moo’s dish. He didn’t eat any of it, he just wanted to sniff it and know that his bowl now had the good stuff in it. Mr. Moo has 2 bowls, one to look at and one to eat from. He and Dodger share a dry food bowl and she doesn’t mind. Plus, she gets a mixture of wet and dry in a different bowl.

Amongst the samples were two cans of Life’s Abundance wet Instinctive Choice Canned Cat Food. So I let Dodger sample all the wet food. Like I do with all of her dinners, I mixed the wet with my current brand of store bought cat food. Dodger loved it, except for the fact it was pate, and not chunks of meat. She prefers meaty chunks over pate. However, Instinctive Choice uses four flavors important to cats: chicken, shrimp, turkey and liver, along with chicken broth. So she didn’t really mind the pate, since it had better flavor and smell than the brand name cat foods.

Instinctive Choice canned cat food is scientifically formulated, by the companies’ veterinarian, based on evolutionary and physiological factors. There are also other healthy ingredients, such as fish oil, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.

So Mr. Moo didn’t and still doesn’t eat any, he just didn’t want to be forgotten. Neptune loved and is still on his Life’s Abundance Healthy dry kibble, and Dodger enjoyed her Instinctive Choice wet food, but she prefers the chunky cat food as opposed to pate.

The cost of our 16.5 lb bag of dry kibble for Neptune was $43.37, although they also have a 6.6 pound bag for $18.70. The wet food is sold by the case in 3 ounce cans, and you get 24 cans for $25.49. Our order arrived in 3 business days.

My dog Bowzer also likes receiving samples, and he really enjoyed all the canine goodies he received. Bowzer is on special dry health food already, because he suffers from several allergies, some of which are food related.

First up was the Dry Health Food for Dogs, dry kibble. He gobbled that right down. This dry kibble is formulated with high quality proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants, and also includes probiotics and fatty acids, to maintain muscle mass, healthy skin, glossy coats, and maintain nutritional and physiological needs of a dog, throughout its life cycle. They’ve also included calcium and phosphorus to support developing and aging bones, fiber to promote digestive health, and include prebiotics, vegetables and fruit.

Life’s Abundance dry Health Food for Dogs is sold in bags of 3 sizes: 8, 20, and 40 lbs. The small bag is $18.31, 20 lb bag is $37.23 and the 40 lb bag is $71.38.

With Bowzers’ normal dry health food, I spend twice what I would at the store, but it lasts twice as long as store bought. It’s the same with Neptunes’ dry Health Food. Only the cat food lasts 4 times as long as the store bought bags did, same size. Neptune eats less of his health food, due to the nutrititious components, rather than by products and ingredients which do nothing for digestion, health, or the longevity of a cats’ life.

Bowzer also received a sample of Life’s Abundance Premium Canned Dog Food, in the Chicken and Crab Dinner with sauce flavor. I could see the chunks of meat, as well as the veggies. It looked like stew, and Bowzer was more than willing to try it. He gobbled that right down, and looked around for more. He always enjoys gravy with his dinner, but this was an extra treat for him. He obviously enjoyed his Chicken and Crab dinner and it certainly had an abundance of sauce.

The ingredients consist of organic Chicken, crab, eggs, carrots, red skinned potatoes and peas and apples.

The canned dog food also comes in Turkey and Shrimp Breakfast in Broth, and its’ main ingredients are: turkey, shrimp, eggs, red skinned potatoes, red bell peppers, cheddar cheese, and is seasoned with Basil and parsley. Wow. Gourmet dining for a dog in a can!!!!

This Breakfast and Dinner canned food is sold by the case (24 cans at 5.5 ounces each), and cost 36.07 per case, either flavor.

Bowzer also got some training/reward treats and regular snacks for dogs. I made him work or remember his training, in order to get the reward treats, which he readily inhaled and seemed to enjoy, though there weren’t quite enough of those for him. Tasty Rewards Nutritional Training Treats were created to keep your dogs attention during training sessions. Key ingredients include New Zealand lamb, chicken, lecithin, and ground pumpkin seeds and look like mini pieces of jerky.

The Antioxidant Health Bars come in an Oatmeal/Apple recipe, which also include vitamins A and C, and beta carotene. These snacks helps a dog maintain a healthy

Immune system, and are made in the form of a cookie or a bar, which looked healthy and smelled nutritious. Bowzer especially liked the Oatmeal/Apple bars, but again, we didn’t get enough samples of those.

None of Life’s Abundance food, supplements, or snacks contain corn, corn gluten, wheat or wheat gluten.

My pets are all at different stages in their lives, and I gear their food toward their most immediate need. Bowzer and Neptune will remain on their health food diets, while Dodger and Moo will stay on their normal diets. I did switch Neptune over to Life’s Abundance dry Cat Food, and we are both happy with this arrangement.
