Now that there are so many services that help people easily follow a nutritious diet, it's hard not to see your dog for the fat ass that he is. For an easy way to keep your best friend eating right, try Nulo
Launched by a team of ATXers headed by a former L.A. petcare kingpin, Nulo's tried to solve "America's feeding problem" (responsible for decreased pet lifespan and expensive health complications) by amassing a team of animal nutritionists to concoct a line of "supercharged" foods, which they'll deliver fresh to your door -- cutting out the 7-12 months of shelf-time for store-bought stuff, which can mean diminished nutrition and stale taste, though you'll just have to trust Fido on that. Or will you? Points of claimed superiority include named meats (no mystery flavorings) and those meats' dehydrated versions (10% of the size, but 3x the protein), allowing the animal to eat less and receive greater nutritional value while still enjoying his meal more, as proven by side-by-side Petsi Challenges. Canine/feline-specific kibble and cans come in complete protein combos ranging from chicken/brown rice to turkey/sweet potato, plus there are snacks like peanut butter/honey and yogurt/cranberry; everything's based on the same dietary platform, allowing you to change flavors without affecting the animal's digestion, thereby preventing a Mutt-lox Moment.
Nulo also keeps your beast in shape via free online tools like a weight tracker, fitness log, body scoring test, and custom meal planner -- just don't let him get too jacked, or next time you walk through the door you'll be greeted with a look that says, "Hey, fat ass, why don't you eat some quinoa?"
