Beneful Leads The Way To Healthier Dog Foods

Constantly improving is how we grow and better self and those around us. This is exactly what the dog food sector is dong. They are improving the foods that we offer our pets for nutrition. These improvements are making the dog and cat foods better for digestive health, better to generate energy and better for mental clarity and overall health.

Some companies have been making these improvement in their foods for many years. Purina is one such company. Their Beneful line of foods offer better nutrition that is aimed at specific needs and ages of dogs. They are made with lean meats and fresh veggies that dogs love and crave.

Beneful understands the people want to feed their pets the same healthy, delicious foods that they eat. This trend is slowly being recognized and integrated by other premium dog food makers. They are making foods that taste better, are fresher and are ore like what their owners eat.

Fresher meats include such tastes as chicken, turkey, and even duck. These meats are felt to more closely replicate the foods and diets that canine predators of the past ate. These are also richer in proteins and felt to be an overall better choice for the canine diet. Purinastore’s Beneful has used these meats for many years knowing the nutritional benefits of them.

Healthy eating trends have slowly become the norm. People are taking better note of what they are consuming, and this trend has overlapped to their pets. Premium dog food makers have seen these desires and trends increase and are making the foods and treats that will enhance your dog’s diet.

Cost is of a bit of a concern. The premium foods do cost a bit ore, but they are selling on Amazon at an alarming rate. The one million dollar dog food business is now turning into a billion dollar business. Makers of these premium foods do not see the demand going down anytime soon either.

As long as people are concerned with their health and eating habits, they will also be concerned with how their pets eat as well. Healthy is the new trend in dog food.

 

Why George Soros is Investing in Gold

A recent article at the Morning Money website proclaimed that George Soros is buying gold stocks! . And not just any gold stocks: he’s sunk $25 million into high-risk small-cap gold stocks. When an investor of Soros’ standing begins buying up shares in gold mines, people can’t help but stop and take notice. When he enters the high-risk market, something important is clearly going on.
Buying small quantities of gold has always been a favorite activity of the small investor. But what is motivating Soros’ new interest in gold? In a recent podcast interview with Eric Dye of Enterprise Radio Network, Philip Diehl, president of US Money Reserve, suggests some interesting reasons why investors like Soros would be taking gold very seriously indeed.
Diehl knows what he’s talking about. As the former Chief of Staff of the US Treasury and Director of the US Mint, he’s an expert in precious metals. As president of the US Money Reserve, Diehl heads a company that is one of the world’s largest distributors of legal-tender bullion gold, silver, and platinum coins. These coins are produced by the US Mint and backed by the full force of the United States economy. That makes them a much more secure investment than gold and silver bars issued by other companies, which may suffer from adulteration and counterfeit techniques that have become much more sophisticated in recent years.
According to prnewswire, Philip Diehl has some answers to the question about why investors like George Soros would be interested in the gold market. He gives several reasons for its rise over the past decade. First is the financial crisis of 2008. The crisis instilled fear into the stock market, driving investors to look to gold. Because gold is universally recognized as “wealth insurance,” it’s become the obvious safe choice. A second cause for the rise in the gold market is the speculation and uncertainty about the direction of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy. And then there’s the strong recent rise in the value of the dollar, which Diehl figures has reached its peak and is soon going to fall. When the dollar falls, gold becomes cheaper for international buyers. Central banks will try to increase their holdings in gold. Geopolitical uncertainty plays a role as well, driving international clients to rush to the security of precious metals.
If George Soros’ prediction of another looming 2008-style financial crisis is true.

Premium dog food demand drives innovation

Many people are searching for higher quality products to provide to their dogs and this trend is leading to not only increase in profits for those companies that manufacture dog food but also an increase in the options available to those seeking out these products.

Purinastore’s Beneful, one of the largest dog food makers has recently acquired a company that specializes in organic dog food and Beneful has begun to offer an expanded number of organic food options to dog owners concerned about genetically modified foods that use pesticides. The presence of additional organic food options in the marketplace provide food buyers with greater control over those foods available for their pets. It also eliminates the side effects of many pesticides and other food additives can have and alleviates those concerns among dog owners who eat organic food themselves.

Freshpet, a relative newcomer to the market, has a preservative free option for dog owners. The side effect of dog food without preservatives is that they need to be refrigerated and Freshpet has created an special refrigerator to cope with this challenge. Of course, this extra care and machinery has a cost associated with it but Freshpet is betting that concern with the harmful nature of some preservatives will lead to higher sales for the company.

Purina Beneful has launched an online service through a website that allows dog owners to special order small batches of dog foods of their choosing. The ability to customize their pets dog food provides for a real benefit to dog owners who want to micromanage their pets diet and to eliminate ingredients that they believe are harmful to their pets. This small batch ordering process is particularly beneficial to dog owners who have pets with allergies or other food sensitivities and who are looking for dietary alternatives for their dogs.

All told, the move towards different types of premium dog foods has given customers with greater control over the health of their dogs and may lead to longer lives in better health. A happier and healthier dog may result and this is worth the premium price for many dog owners.

Sanjay Shah, the 45 year-old founder of Autism Rocks, is a businessman, philanthropist, husband and father of three. Shah is also a millionaire: it seems that everything he touches turns to gold. Sanjay Shah started hedge fund Solo Capital, made millions, then he left the day-to-day operations to others so he could spend time with his family, help organize a music festival in Dubai and focus on his autism charity, Autism Research Trust. Shah lives in Dubai, where one day he entertained world-famous rapper Snoop Dogg at his home, much to the delight of his three children.

After entertaining the rapper and his entourage, Shah realized that putting on shows with superstars like Snoop Dogg would help his fundraising efforts for his favorite cause. Sanjay Shah raises money for autism research; his youngest son Nikhil was diagnosed with autism in 2011 and Sanjay realized that while he could afford therapy to help his son thrive, other families did not have the luxury of hiring full-time, live-in therapists. A former DJ in college, music aficionado and now with a host of affluent friends and former clients, Shah is in a unique position to use raise money by hosting private fundraising concerts with mega-stars like Prince.

Only the very wealthy can afford to attend private Autism Rocks concerts, nevertheless, autism research is a worthy cause and people want to donate smaller amounts. Autism Rocks on Go Fund Me accepts donations from people who want to fund projects that increase the medical community’s understanding of autism. Autism Rocks is not looking for a cure, instead, the charity funds research into early intervention programs that help autistic children learn social and communication skills. This research, done at the prestigious Cambridge University, identifies which support services will make a difference in a child’s life. This is a very important fundraising effort, as the research helps families worldwide who want to understand what their child needs, so they can do their best to make their son or daughter’s life as happy and productive as possible.
