Redbarn Pet Products, a leading manufacturer of premium pet food, treats, and chews, today unveiled a new educational blog series focused on the nutritional needs of our canine companions. The newly launched series—entitled Dog Food 101 and written by Redbarn’s Charmaine Griffin under the guidance of the NRE Veterinary Team— tackles complicated questions many pet parents have when researching dog food.
“Pet parents have more information, often contradictory or confusing, and more choices than ever before when picking out dog food. It can quickly become an overwhelming process,” Griffin said. “Our main goal with this series is not to sell Redbarn, but to share our knowledge, so pet parents have digestible and accessible information when deciding what to feed their dogs.”
The topics stem from trending news, such as the FDA’s investigation into DCM, and repetitive questions Redbarn receives on social media or customer service calls.
“Our customer service specialists always say ‘thanks for taking your pet’s health seriously’ after they answer calls from pet parents looking for detailed product information. And they mean it,” Griffin said. “That’s the same mindset I have when writing this series. No matter how tricky the question is, it’s important for the pet parent to ask it and for Redbarn to give a transparent answer rooted in expertise.”
Redbarn’s team has been in business since 1996 with three company-owned pet food and treat manufacturing facilities. Their first product, Rolled Food for Dogs, was released in 1996 and is still in production today.
Upcoming blogs will answer questions like, “is my dog a carnivore or an omnivore,” “what’s the difference between meals and by-product meals,” and “how should I interpret DCM?” To follow along, visit www.redbarn.com/blog/.
