Good news, everyone! Athena had a GREAT annual vet appointment.

In my last post we had started the 10-day detox with Supreme Source®, and I was already loving the results. Now we’re well on our way to reaching all of our goals. One big benefit of the challenge is that I have noticed a change in Athena. It was subtle at first – but I could tell that the extra attention was paying off. Sometimes at the dog park, she would growl at other dogs. With my extra attention on her, she now at first looks at me, and then never engages in any growling with other dogs. If another dog growls, she walks away. I’ve noticed that we’re both more attentive to one another in public and at home.

Springtime is a GREAT time to make a pet food switch. We adopted our Athena in early spring so her annual appointments always fall in March. That’s a great time to see what’s working and see what’s not working. Athena just went to the vet last week, and we were able to talk about the new food and any initial results. The great news is that Athena was a bit overweight at last year’s appointment and is now doing great! All of her blood work came back perfect, and her exam was thorough and easy. I can’t help but think that our 10-day detox has made a difference! Of course, it goes beyond 10 days.

It becomes a lifestyle.

That’s why I’m sharing my 7 Steps to a Happier and Healthier Pet:

1 – Make sure you’re providing the right foods. I knew we weren’t providing the right brand of food previously, because Athena had more trouble. She would vomit sometimes between meals and didn’t have firm stools. Supreme Source has improved Athena’s mind, body, and soul – and in just ten days. Luckily we are now beyond the 10-day detox and we’re going to be enjoying these benefits for many years to come. Supreme Source Pet Food is grain free (no corn, no wheat, no soy) and contains no artificial flavors or colors. It has a healthy blend of fruits and vegetables – which are natural sources of potassium, fiber, vitamins and minerals. And YOU can start the 1-day detox this spring with your pet today – visit www.superfoodswitch.com to save on Supreme Source pet food, AND, you can sign up for daily emails with tips and instructions to a better relationship with your pet.

And who doesn’t love that?

2 – When paired with good food, exercise is key. This is a top-notch tip when it comes to giving your pet the chance of a long and happier life. Also, regular exercise is good for YOU too. This is a wonderful chance to do it together.

3 – Maintain a healthy weight. This advice applies to all of us! With pets, you have to remember that you’re the one to control what goes into their bowl and what treats and table scraps they get. Make healthy choices. Spring is often a huge chance for people to gain control of their health and fitness levels. It’s just as important to work on your pet’s health and dietary habits. The choices you make now could give you years together. That’s why we made the Super Food Switch.

4 – Either invest in training, or try to train on your own. Take advantage of obedience or agility training classes where you live, and also look into socializing your pet. It’s wonderful when your pet is good with adults, kids, and other dogs and cats. There may be much different options for cats but they can be trained too. And it’s a life-changing thing for your pets and for you. This opens up opportunities for travel, or other pet friendly places. It’s also FUN, and bonding for your relationship.

5 – Take time for dental care! In fact, Athena is having a teeth cleaning procedure (while awake) next week. Not only does this remove bad breath, but you can prevent gum disease – which leads to bigger health issues down the line.

Somewhat related, make sure to keep cats hydrated to prevent urinary tract infections – which lead to trouble.

Right now, we're so happy we made the #SuperFoodSwitch to introduce Supreme Source into Athena's diet. Right now we're sailing to spring with a happier and healthier pet. Find out more! #ad #IC

6 – Make sure you discuss, prevent and/or treat flea, tick and heartworm. Even during the winter, a cat can get fleas, ticks, and heartworm – and we live in New England! With the weather changes, it’s always important to monitor.

7 – Provide mental stimulation for both cats and dogs. Our cat, Juniper, is a strictly indoors cat which means more than ever that we have to make sure she has places to rest, to watch the world go by outside, and to scratch. Dogs need stimulation too! If I am particularly busy and not bringing Athena everywhere, walking her enough, playing with her, she will look for things to chew! Even though she’s not a puppy. You are the best for your pet, but interactive toys count for a lot too!

Here’s a fun video about recent life with Athena:

Ultimately, we are so happy we did the 10-day detox and that Supreme Source is now a regular part of our lives. We get ours at Stop & Shop, right in town and can easily be found in the pet food aisle. I love seeing the positive differences on Athena’s spirit, her digestion, and her overall wellness. I’m glad we switched her food to something more nutritious and that it only took ten days for her to be eating better – a premium grain-free diet packed with healthy enzymes and prebiotics. My little best friend needed the change.

Inside and out.

The 10-Day Detox: 5 Spring Goals For My Dog

This post was sponsored by Supreme Source® as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Time for a #SuperFoodSwitch! We're taking the 10-day detox with our dog, Athena, and talking about wellness goals for her future this spring. Check it out here! #ad #IC

I don’t want to put words in my dog Athena’s mouth, but I think spring is her favorite season!

What’s not to love? It’s the season that gets the four of us going, so in turn, that gets her going. On the gloomiest of winter days, it’s so cold and icy out that none of us leave the house. I’m pretty sure Athena knows where she stands pretty early in the day because she doesn’t have her usual gusto – her usual pep. When spring hits, she loves to take sunbaths and race around the yard while Cassidy gardens and tends to the chickens. Athena will even go down the slide like my kids will!

We all need change in the spring. Just like my kids (or even I) can be picky about the food we put in our bodies, it never occurred to me that dogs can be picky too until I met Athena. We don’t always think about the food we put into their bodies the way we think about what we feed ourselves. That’s why I love spring. Spring-cleaning comes in many forms. We clean the house, of course, but we also clean our bodies AND make sure we’re moving our bodies regularly. Athena is more of my accountability partner than any of my family members. Cassidy works long hours and goes to his office gym once or twice a day. Both kids have P.E. twice a week, but Scarlet also does track and dance fitness. The cat races around with the “zoomies” at 10pm each night. Where does that leave Athena, who isn’t able to control her diet/exercise the way we can?

That leads us to the 10-day detox!

Here’s what you can do, because in just 10 days? A lot can happen. You can improve your pet’s mind, body and soul! You can start your 10-day detox TODAY. It’s so easy. Simply head here for a free bag of Supreme Source® pet food (up to $9.99 value, while supplies last) and you can also sign up for daily emails with tips and instructions to a better relationship with your pet. We are so excited to start and we have our bag of dog food! Supreme Source is a premium, grain-free, superfood diet. It’s packed with healthy enzymes and prebiotics to cleanse and rejuvenate our best buds, inside and out.

It’s grain-free (no corn, wheat or soy), contains no artificial flavors or colors, and is a healthy blend of fruits and vegetables – which are natural sources of potassium, fiber, vitamins and minerals. We get ours at Stop & Shop in the pet aisle!

Here are our 5 Spring Goals For Athena:

1 – Exercise at least 5 out of 7 days a week. This is mainly on me because no one else is home with her, and no one else needs regular exercise as much as I do! I absolutely love having Athena as my exercise partner.

2 – Find joy in the little things in life. This should be no problem for Athena who already does this so flawlessly and naturally. It’s me who can learn a few things from her! Perhaps we’re on our goals path together. She inspires me.

3 – Be on top of regular medication and vitamins. She takes monthly medications for prevention of serious diseases.

4 – Make a point to PLAY every day. Play is the spice of life, at any age, and whether you’re a dog or a human.

5 – Spring clean your dog’s system with the 10-day detox. In just 10 days, your dog can be eating better. This March start here to let Supreme Source Pet Food help you feed their soul and detox their system with healthy ingredients and informational tools. They help make it easy for you to switch your pet’s food to something more nutritious. We started our detox!

Athena is a picky eater, which I had never seen in a dog. For her, I picked out Supreme Source Grain Free Turkey Meal & Sweet Potato Dry Dog Food. I’m equally happy with all of the flavors, though. She gets happier about mealtime, so I’m happy we are making the switch. We just started the detox and I already see a big difference. I think we’re all just generally happier when the weather is nice, and/or when we’re getting out there and eating better foods. To spring!

Just think about how different you feel after ten days of eating better and moving your body. I imagine it’s so much more for dogs, who can’t buy their own food or choose when they’re let out to play or walk. I am all for a happier dog!

Her annual vet appointment is next week, and I can’t wait to hear what they say about her.
