Help Your Pet Drop Some Pounds With Global Pet Foods' "Healthy Pet Challenge", Starting This Weekend - What A Pawesome Idea!

Are you up for the Challenge?

TORONTO, June 10, 2013 –This summer Global Pet Foods and Natural Balance® Pet Foods wants to help your pet win the battle of the bulge. From June 15 - August 31 pet parents are invited to join the Healthy Pet Challenge, a program to improve your pet’s overall health and waistline.  

“We want pet parents to have as much time with their pets as possible,” says Jim Walker, president Global Pet Foods. “Carrying extra weight takes a direct toll on your pet’s health and shortens their life span. Through the Healthy Pet Challenge we hope to educate pet parents about the important role diet and exercise plays in your pets overall health and encourage them to get outside and get active with their pets.”

The Healthy Pet Challenge kicks off June 15 with Healthy Pet Wellness Consultations taking place at Global Pet Foods stores across Canada for the entire week. Pet parents are encouraged to bring the packaging from their current pet food for a free nutritional analysis.

To help motivate pet parents to get active, Healthy Pet Challenge participants will check- in weekly on the Global Pet Foods website to upload their exercise times. To monitor their pet’s weight, pet parents can stop by their local Global Pet Foods to weigh their pet using Global Pet Foods’ scales.   

Global Pet Foods will be giving away a one year supply of  Natural Balance Pet Food to five (5) lucky Healthy Pet Challenge participants, fifty (50) Global Pet Foods Gift Cards valued at $150 each, and a variety of other prizes, including five Canada Pooch Jackets to thirty (30) participants.
