Grain-Free Dog Food – The Only Kind of Food for Precious #PetcoWholehearted

Grain-free dog food is the only kind of food I feed my dog. In the beginning, when we first got our Precious, we just fed her whatever was cheapest. After all, all dog food is the same, right? Wrong! Absolutely false. All dog food is not the same. Many dog foods, especially the cheapest of the cheap use grain as their first ingredient, unlike #PetcoWholehearted which uses natural, simple ingredients.


As a new dog owner, I admit that I had no idea what to look for in dog food and really had no idea how many dog foods used grain as one of the first ingredients. THEN, I found out that grain is not good for dogs, whether they’re allergic or not. Their bodies just weren’t meant to have grains of any sort, after all, when is the last time you saw a nature documentary with a wolf eating wheat? That’s when I switched to grain-free dog food.

For those you who may not know, grains commonly used in dog food are:

  • Wheat
  • Soy
  • Corn

Her Name is Precious for a Reason

Our dog’s name is Precious for a reason. She is absolutely precious to us. When we adopted her, the idea was that she would be Hubby & Little Man’s dog. Nope; she is totally MINE. She’s a sensitive dog who is afraid of her own shadow and even afraid of bugs, so I guess that I have become her protector. But, even though she is “my” dog, the whole family loves her to death, so we want to give her the very best.


Going grain-free was the best thing we’ve ever done for our girl. She had no food allergies or sensitivities, to begin with, and she appeared to be the picture of health. But once we switched her to grain-free dog food, she began to look even better. She became a much more happy and healthy fraidy cat!

Grain-Free Food from Wholehearted

Recently, we were asked to stop into our neighborhood Petco to check out their new grain-free food called Wholehearted.


When I saw the added benefits of Wholehearted, I knew this was a good choice for our Precious. First and foremost, every single variety of Wholehearted dog food is grain-free, which makes me feel like they put a more thought into each recipe, versus just throwing in fillers. I also love that this food is also packed with other super healthy ingredients like:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat
  • Antioxidants, which we all know are great for overall health
  • Completely balance vitamins and minerals
  • Protein/carb options like salmon & pea, chicken & pea, and beef & pea


Another thing I love about this grain-free food is the price and availability. Wholehearted is very reasonably priced for a grain-free food, which I like since that stuff can be super duper expensive. And, like I said, it is sold at Petco, which is right down the street.


Plus, it is available in both small and large breed options, so it can be fed to any sized dog. Oh, and it does come in both wet and dry options so it can also be fed to the pickiest eaters! Luckily, I don’t have to worry about that last part with Precious. 😉


Affordable Grain-Free Food with Wholehearted

I will always feed Precious grain-free food since I feel that it’s just better for her health, but now I am elated that I can now give her a grain-free food that is also good for my wallet. Our family would do anything for Precious, which includes giving her the best food we can. This food fits that bill. Visit the Wholehearted page at Petco to learn more about this affordable, healthy food. It’s a winner for me.
