April Contest: SIX! Months of Natural Balance Dog Food

What an amazing contest folks. Simply comment below to be entered in our April Giveaway, 6 months of Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Dog Food from Lucia’s Premium Pet. It doesn’t get any better!

Some dogs and even puppies may be highly sensitive to commonly used proteins, carbohydrates and food additives in their diet. Allergic reactions can lead to irritable bowel, upset stomach, and a number of skin problems. Natural Balance® has created an entire line of Allergy Formulas for dogs with these food allergies. Each Formula has been created specifically for the needs of sensitive pets.

 The fortnate winner will receive one 15# bag of Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diets (Venison, Bison, Duck or Fish) per month for 6 months. * In-Store pick up only. Lucia’s is on Daniel Island in the Publix Shopping Center.

Check out this amazing testimonial from a dog owner:

  

I am a member of an online group called K9-EPIGLOBAL. We are owners of dogs who suffer from a rare condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI). This condition renders our dogs incapable of naturally producing the digestive enzymes necessary to break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins so we must supplement their diet with theses enzymes as well as feed them kibble that is  low in fat and fiber. By the time the condition is diagnosed, many of the dogs have lost up to 30% of their body mass.

 The purpose of the online group is to provide help and guidance for those trying to get their recently diagnosed dogs back to a healthy  state. There are around 1200 members in our group and many of us have had remarkable success with Natural Balance® Potato and  Duck Formula in particular due to its low fat and fiber content.

 As you can see in the before and after photo.. the results in a short period of time have been staggering!! She has gained almost 30 lbs  in only a few months and is now back to her original weight!

 Thank you for helping me get my own dog back to a healthy state.  All the best, Marty Smets

Everlasting Treat Ball Giveaway WINNER!

Congrats to Nat, lucky number 30. He’s the winner of the Everlasting Treat Ball. And from his comments, it seems his dogs will really enjoy the toy: “ Give it to me!  I’m serious. I have bulldogs, and the only thing that lasts more than 30 seconds is a rib eye bone, but they only last 45 sec. My dogs would be the true test to its indestructibleness. Squirrel and Weezy want it. Give it to them”. Well Squirrel and Weezy got their wish. I hope Nat will send us some photos or video of the dogs gnawing on the toy so we can share it with all of you!

March Contest: Everlasting Treat Ball Giveaway

Got a bored dog with a destructive streak? Or a stinky breath? Or jaws of death that mean a quick annihilation of every other toy you purchase for them?  Then here’s the contest for you, the Everlasting Treat Ball Giveaway, compliments of Hairy Winston Pet Boutique and Grocery. I’ve heard nothing but amazing stories about this treat ball. The most tenacious of Terriers finds it challenging, the most voracious Chow chewers can’t destroy it, and the smartest of Schnauzers finds it stimulating. 

The Everlasting Treat Ball can be filled with food, or any snack your dog enjoys and then capped with one or two Everlasting Treats. Everlasting Treats can also be inserted upside down or into the center cavity of the ball for more challenging play. Dishwasher safe in the top rack for easy clean up. Completely free of latex, vinyl, and phthalates.

 Available in blue in sizes:

Large (5″ diameter) recommended for dogs over 40 pounds

Medium (3.75″ diameter) recommended for dogs under 40 pounds

Small (2.5″ diameter) recommended for dogs under 12 pounds

If your dog is a strong chewer, we recommend selecting the larger size.

Retail $15-$25 depending on size.
