Dogs who are tired of the same kibble day after day, are going to flip for Doggie Shotz, a new product from Pet Alternatives, that allows them to enjoy gourmet, nutritious flavor at every meal, company officials say. Made in the USA, Doggie Shotz, is a liquid, gravy-like additive that can be mixed in with traditional dog food, provides the burst of flavor Fido craves from people food without all the extra calories and fat.
The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention estimates that more than one in two dogs is overweight. Additionally, over 20% of all canines are obese. Much of this weight gain can be attributed to more and more pet owners treating their pets as children and indulging them in table scraps.
But what dog really wants to eat the same commercial dog food day after day? Now they don’t have to, company officials say. Doggie Shotz come in six varieties including Bacon N Eggs, Three Cheese, BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Bacon Cheeseburger, Chicken Stir Fry and Turkey N Mash.
“Doggie Shotz offers great taste, enhanced nutrition and a gourmet experience for any dog,” explains Bill Kavanov, CEO of Pet Alternatives, manufacturer of Doggie Shotz. The product line ia naturally made and is 90% fat free, gluten-free and contains a blend of essential vitamins and minerals. That means Doggie Shotz (MSRP $5.99 per 9 oz. bottle) can be added to a dog’s food bowl at every meal without worry that the canine indulger will pack on the pounds, officials add. The serving size is 2 tablespoons per half cup of food and the bottle can be unrefrigerated unless Fido wants a cold meal.
Pet Alternatives debuted Doggie Shotz to the pet-buying public at the Superzoo tradeshow in July.
