Purina is launching the new Purina ONE Score system to help Canadian dog
owners monitor their dog's health and wellness.
The Purina ONE
Score system is simple and easy to use. It measures the seven core areas of a dog's health. You are asked to rate each category
on a sliding scale of 1 through 5 points, 5 being better for your dogs overall health. The system brings to light such things
as Breath Smell, Dental Appearance, Energy, Appetite, Coat, Skin and the all-important Bowel Movement. It is not however
designed to have you forgo your annual check-ups with the veterinarian. Understanding how important each one of these categories
is to the overall wellness of your pet will no doubt make you a better pet owner. It may even make you notice potential problems
before they become even bigger problems.
I am proud to be working with Purina ONE on their newest initiative
as an Ambassador for dog owners far and wide. I know how important my little Paisley has become in our family. I will do
everything in my power to see that she is healthy and happy.
recent study of more than 1000 Canadian dog owners, conducted by Purina and Maru/Matchbox revealed that 91% of Canadian dog
owners would be interested in some form of tool that would help them easily measure their dog's health. They developed the
ONE Score system for exactly that reason. Surprisingly, the study found that less than one quarter of Canadians surveyed
(22 percent) felt that their dog was extremely healthy.
Purina, its not only about selling their product, its equally important to them that their customers understand just how much
they care about your dogs too. The ONE Score system was developed with a panel of experts ranging from animal nutritionists
to small animal veterinarians.
I asked my girls to rate
our little Paisley. Surprisingly, the girls gave almost identical scores. They felt that she scored high in several areas,
with very little concern about her overall health. Paisley is a very active, happy and healthy 1 year old. She scored 33
out of 35.
We will continue to feed her the Purina ONE Smartblend
dog food that she absolutely loves.
For dog owners who love
their little fur babies, take the Purina ONE Score survey and be honest about your pets overall health. They will appreciate
the fact that you care so much and furnish you with unconditional love.

a primary goal in your family's lives.
