And Now Premium Dog Food Arrives

Dogs do need to eat vitamin, nutrients, and an overall balanced diet. For years, owners believed dogs didn’t need to eat a high quality diet. Perceptions and attitudes are changing immensely these days. Facebook has written a solid article on the huge surge in sales on premium dog foods. The increase in sales shows owners are taking the health and diet of their dogs much more seriously. They have to. Unless dogs get the right amount of nutrients, they could suffer from dietary deficiencies.

Beneful is a popular premium dog food manufactured by Purina. Selections of wet food that mix turkey, carrots, spinach, rice, and the like may seem exotic. These ingredients are simple ones selected for their ability to deliver nutrients commonly missing in average-grade dog food. Beneful does not offer unique ingredients just to be different. There are nutritional concerns that go into decisions to craft the recipes.

Pet owners have come to the realization these ingredients are an enormous help to their pets. This is why the owners have spent $10.5 billion per year on premium pet food. Overall pet food sales are around $23.7 billion. That means premium brands are pulling in about 45% of the market. Years ago, gourmet dog foods were only a small fraction of the market. The food choices had to be purchased in specialty pet shops, and the manufacturers were small companies.

Today, big names like Purina are manufacturing brands such as Beneful. Beneful wet, dry, and treat selections are available in abundance on the shelves at some of the biggest retailers in the industry. The retailers know these brands are popular. They know the sales are surging. This is why they are more than willing to keep the brands in stock.

Quality plays a major role in the success of premium dog foods. The harvesting, cooking, and testing of the foods ensures nothing falls below promised standards. Manufacturers known the wet foods have to live up to their premium name. If not, then there is no reason for owners to buy them. So far, dog owners reveal they are pleased with what the manufacturers are delivering.

Dr. Sergio Cortes, Expert on Zika Virus

Dr. Sergio Cortes, a specialist about the Zika virus, talked about the virus and has helped bring to light what this virus is and how to avoid the virus. The Zika virus was first noted some 40 years ago on the continent of Africa. Over the next couple of decades, the virus traveled through parts of Asia. Recently, the Zika virus appeared in Latin America. The Zika virus is carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

The first case of Zika appeared in Brazil in April of 2015. The virus has spread quickly and caused great concern among the medical professionals. If the disease is detected quickly and early enough, it can be controlled easily. One thing that has medical experts worried is the link between Zika and microcephaly and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a neurological disease with an autoimmune origin which can be linked to the Zika virus.

Dr. Cortes spoke about several issues and concerns about the Zika virus to help reassure the general public. These issues include Transmission, Symptoms and Diagnosis, Treatment, Recommendations for Pregnant Women, and Prevention. Transmission of this virus is by mosquito. These mosquito lays eggs in good clean water but has adapted to other types if needed. This disease is not contagious. You must be bitten by the mosquito. The person bitten by an infected mosquito is then infected. If a mosquito isn’t carrying the virus, they may bite a person who has been infected by another mosquito and then become infected as well starting a non ending chain.

The symptoms that are most common include fever, muscle pain, and a skin rash. Symptoms are not very aggressive and usually only last a week at the most. Diagnosis is only done by an examination. There are no tests to identify the virus. Treatment is geared to the symptoms so the infected person has some relief. There is not cure for the Zika virus. Doctors treat the symptoms. Symptoms may vary from person to person. Doctors may prescribe an anti-inflammatory or an analgesic remedy. Pregnant women or women planning on becoming pregnant should take precautions to not be bitten by insects. Plan on staying indoors during the worse time insects are known to bite. Use clothing that covers most of the body to avoid bites. Use repellents and even use mosquito netting at night to avoid being bitten while you are asleep.
