Tampa, FL, August 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- When selecting the 2012 Editor’s Choice awards, Pet Product News International editors and reviewers found what Halo, Purely for Pets customers already know: that Spot’s Stew® Dry Dog-Grain Free Surf ‘n Turf and Spot’s Stew® Dry Cat Grain Free Hearty Chicken Recipe are healthy and delicious options for dogs and cats on grain free diets.
Pet Product News recently announced that Spot’s Stew® Dry Dog-Grain Free Surf ‘n Turf and Spot’s Stew® Dry Cat Grain Free Hearty Chicken Recipe were both chosen to win the publication’s coveted Editors’ Choice award. While the publication received hundreds of submissions this year, only 43 products were selected for this honor.
Pet Product News editors had this to say about why they chose these two Spot’s Stew formulas: “Halo's Spot's Stew Grain Free dry food recipes, Hearty Chicken for cats and Surf ‘n Turf for dogs, received unanimous and enthusiastic reports from all of our testers—both two- and four-legged. The owners loved that both recipes are not only grain-free, but also free from chicken meal and any other rendered animal parts. The pets, which included one exceptionally finicky cat, obviously loved the taste as they all scarfed up the food without hesitation every time it was served.”
Halo’s holistic philosophy is to use only naturally occurring whole food ingredients and all Spot’s Stew diets are formulated with a unique protein blend made from real meat, vegetables, fruits and high quality oils. The formulas are always free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and never contain chicken meal or other rendered animal parts.
Spot’s Stew® Dry Dog Grain Free Surf ‘n Turf, made with real ocean whitefish, turkey and duck, joins Halo’s other wholesome, nutritious Spot’s Stew choices for pet parents seeking dry dog food diets that contain only real meat and no “meals.”
This special recipe allows dogs that eat a dry diet to enjoy an all-natural kibble, free of the grains that may be associated with aggravating allergies. Halo Spot’s Stew includes added vitamins, minerals and other trace elements. This diet is complete and balanced for all life stages.
Spot’s Stew® Dry Cat Grain Free Hearty Chicken Recipe, is based on the original all-natural, wholesome Spot’s Stew recipe. As with all of Halo’s recipes, Halo’s Grain Free Dry Cat Food contains no chicken meal. The grain free recipe also contains no oats, barley, corn, wheat or wheat gluten.
This special formula is made up of crunchy bites, allowing cats that eat a dry diet to enjoy all-natural meals free of the grains that may be associated with allergies or digestive issues like gas, bloating, vomiting or diarrhea.
Committed to using the highest quality, natural ingredients in its products, Halo co-owner Ellen DeGeneres sums up the company’s philosophy about its products: “One of the things I really believe is that if you're going to have pets you should treat them like you'd treat yourself,” she says. “I don't mean you should treat them to new shoes or a fancy car – I'm talking about the basics; a nice bed, fun toys and good food.”
