The Week #1 Challenge – No Grain, No Gain

The ABOUND Philosophy
ABOUND was founded on the belief that pet foods could be better, not just by a little, but by leaps and bounds. They envisioned a pet food that used all-natural ingredients, contained high-quality proteins as the first ingredient, and included real vegetables and wholesome whole grains.
For furry friends with more sensitive digestive systems, ABOUND now offers a grain free line with NO wheat, corn or soy fillers, NO animal-by product meal and NO artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Benefits of Grain Free
Grain free pet foods more closely mimic your pet’s natural, ancestral diet. ABOUND Grain Free recipes are protein-rich and feature easy-to-digest carbohydrates, with none of the grains that some pets find difficult to digest.
Take a look at the variety of dog food and treat options from ABOUND!
- ABOUND Grain Free Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe
- ABOUND Superfood Blend Salmon, Egg & Pumpkin Recipe
Both are made with high-quality protein-rich salmon to help build and maintain strong muscles as well as essential vitamins, minerals and important antioxidants help support the immune system.
