PAWS Product Testing: HALO Spots Stew

The little “fur-girl” usually gets a special canned food meal on most holiday’s. So in accordance with celebrating Easter, she enjoyed lamb by way of HALO Purely For Pets natural pet care products. I knew of the pet brand from watching The Ellen DeGeneres show – she became a co-owner in 2008 after they helped her beloved cat go from bald to beautiful. I finally visited their site last month and was pleased with some of the things I read…

Our Mission: To provide people and their pets with honest information and wholesome products to better the lives of animal and the people who love them.

Halo, Purely for Pets evolved from three guiding principles: balance, nature and love.
Our commitment to wholesome, natural, quality pet products is unparalleled.
Halo products produce vibrant, happier, healthier pets — inside and out. We guarantee you’ll see the results.

Let’s see…a product I can trust; a site containing tons of information on taking better care of pets; special offers  AND a free, no risk trial offer via FREE COUPON, it keeps getting better with HALO, Purely For Pets. So with dog in cart, I selected two varieties of their canned Spot’s Stew. Their site encourages pet parents to read the ingredients. I found it to contain real meats, vegetables, herbs and whole grains. Pets are eating healthier than most people! And considering the limited choices on the nearly bare shelves, I’d say it’s been a very well received product.

“Madame snack-a-lot” certainly enjoyed hers, all you could hear was “nom, nom, nom”. She e stayed glued to that bowl of Spot’s Stew Wholesome Lamb Recipe until there wasn’t a drop left. When finally coming up for air, tips of her curly ears had a faint aroma of a meal done right!

Another promise they fulfilled was sending a $5 off coupon to subscribers who forwarded an email to friends. I received mine last week and will be ordering soon. Since this is where you’ll always FIND A BETTER BARGAIN, put your savvy shopping skills to work by checking out the 50% off limited-time-specials when purchasing online. Select a minimum of $5 and AFTER entering payment info, you’ll be able to enter promo code BetterBargain5 on the screen that asks you to submit order. (exp 5/31)

A big THANKS! to the folks at HALO, PURELY FOR PETS for providing us with our very first promo code offer! We hope our pet parents leave comments to tell others about how their PAWS benefited from using these holistic products made especially for loving homes!
