A few years ago, my friend welcomed an amazing new friend into her life: Jenny, a super sweet, absolutely adorable Pit mix who brought light and happiness into everyone’s life! Everyone loved this sweet pup, and my own beagle Jax, got along so well with Jenny that we even joked about holding a little doggie wedding.
So I was almost as devastated as my friend when Jenny succumbed to illness brought on by contaminated kibble last year. While it was later recalled, it was too late for Jenny. She was so healthy, an active 5-year-old dog with puppy energy, and there was no reason to think she didn’t have a long, healthy future. My friend is still devastated, even a year later.
Naturally, Jenny’s sudden death really freaked me out. Could it happen to Jax? I genuinely didn’t know that so many of the household kibble brands could be so unhealthy — after all, they are formulated for dogs. I was truly disgusted to learn that many kibble brands are made in part from expired grocery store meat, gross scraps, and could even contain styrofoam, plastic, or rotting animal carcasses! I would never eat any of that — why would I give that to my best four-footed friend?
In a scramble, I called my vet for advice on how to transition Jax to a kibble-free diet. I wondered aloud if I should just cook his food myself. That way, I would know exactly what Jax was eating. The vet told me that I had good intentions in trying to make my own meals for Jax, but she warned me that I’d likely miss the proper nutritional balance, and it would take so long to prepare that I would just give up and turn back to kibble anyway. She pointed me to Spot And Tango’s dog food delivery service, which develops formulas dogs need to thrive.
Spot And Tango’s food is free of the many common kibble ingredients that can pose long-term harm to dogs (gluten, wheat, corn, soy, preservatives, and growth hormones, to name more than a few). It’s developed by veterinary nutritionists who know the proper ratios of protein, fiber, and fat best for Jax’s health. Behind the science is safety: All the turkey, lamb, and beef that Spot And Tango uses is USDA certified. I want Jax to eat the same quality food I eat, and Spot And Tango achieves that for me.
Spot And Tango offers convenient, regular delivery right to my door. Jax’s feeding plan was customized based on his unique profile including breed, weight, activity level, and age. This means convenient, no-hassle feeding for me and always-fresh meals for Jax. Every two weeks, Spot And Tango sends me a box of vacuum-sealed, pre-portioned meals. Each one stays super fresh without the use of dangerous preservatives, and I can even freeze an extra meal or two (if there are ever any leftovers). If there’s ever a time when I don’t need a delivery, I can just log into my account and pause with a simple click.
Most important of all was taste. What if Jax just didn’t like Spot And Tango food? I decided to make a slow introduction using Spot And Tango‘s trial option, which included 2 weeks worth of food. I chose the variety pack which included three different recipes: Turkey & Red Quinoa, Beef & Millet, and Lamb & Brown Rice. Jax loved them all! Spot And Tango shipped it for free with an option to receive a 100% refund if Jax and I weren’t satisfied. That never proved to be an issue, as Jax ate each one faster than any of the mediocre kibble I’d been feeding him for years.
I didn’t just prevent a kibble-related tragedy and a ton of heartbreak when I switched to Spot And Tango. I added tremendous quality to Jax’s life, and a new lease on life just by switching his diet to a people-worthy food, and Spot And Tango made it as convenient as could be. They might just be man’s best friend.
