Purina Pet People: Try the ONE Score for National Pet Day!

National Pet Day - Artie - Purina Canada

Happy National Pet Day! To celebrate, Purina Canada is launching the Purina ONE Score – a new scoring system aimed at helping pet owners better understand their dog’s health. I was excited to use this new health scoring system on Olive and Artie as part of National Pet Day.

Purina ONE Score - National Pet Day
Check your pets’ health using the Purina ONE Score!

Our pets’ health is a huge priority and we’re up for doing anything we can in between vet check-ups to ensure they’re staying healthy, especially if it’s quick and easy! 

The Purina ONE Score looks at seven signs of a dog’s health including:

  • Skin condition
  • Coat quality
  • Dental appearance
  • Breath 
  • Bowel movements
  • Energy level and
  • Appetite

All dog owners are encouraged to use the ONE Score to examine your dog and rate them from 1-5 based on these seven categories of health. The results should give pet owners confidence in understanding how healthy their dog is and whether a visit to the vet is on the horizon!

Olive Enthusiasm - Purina ONE National Pet Day
Purina ONE Score check on Energy: 5/5 for Olive!

The ONE Score was developed in consultation with an animal nutritionist and veterinarian and is a pretty simple and handy way for you to check your pets’ health.

Artie Appetite - Purina ONE Score National Pet Day
Purina ONE Score check on Appetite: 5/5 for Artie!

We checked Olive and Artie using the ONE Score and here are their results: 

Olive

  • Breath Smell – 5 
  • Dental Appearance – 5 
  • Energy – 4 
  • Appetite – 2 
  • Coat – 5
  • Skin – 5
  • Bowel Movement – 4
  • Total Score: 30 

Artie

  • Breath Smell – 5 
  • Dental Appearance – 5 
  • Energy – 5 
  • Appetite – 5 
  • Coat – 5
  • Skin – 5
  • Bowel Movement – 4
  • Total Score: 34 

Based off of this, Artie is doing extremely well and Olive is too – except for her appetite.

National Pet Day Purina ONE Score
How does your pet score?

Our best guess is Olive’s gotten bored with her old food, so this past week we switched her over to try Purina ONE Wild Turkey + Venison (lots of real, meaty chunks!)

We’ve since noticed a bit of an improvement in her eagerness to eat. If her ONE Score on Appetite remains low, we’ll take her the vet to see what’s really going on!

(Artie’s appetite exceeds ‘eager’ no matter what we give him, but we do really love the meaty chunks in the Purina products we give him!)

Artie - National Pet Day Purina ONE Score
Purina ONE Score check on Dental Appearance for Artie: 5/5!

For National Pet Day, I hope you Download your ONE Score and do a check to make sure your pets are healthy. 

#LetsLiveBig with our pets!

Ensuring they’re healthy is a big part of that and something as simple as a quick, 7-step health check is the least we can do to help our pets live bigger and better lives. 

See how else I’m living big with my fur babies this year.

  • The Vivo Pizza ๐Ÿ• at @vivoristoranteyeg is SO tasty! Pulled chicken, signature Vivo sauce, grana padano ๐Ÿง€ Tried a lot of great dishes tonight at #VivoDowntown (behind #MacEwanU) for their new #happyhour #aperitivo menu launch including this one. Good deals, Monday to Friday 3-6 p.m., and 11-6 on weekends too! It was also really nice to meet Vivo @ChefMedi. He's so passionate about his craft. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป And he put together a gluten-free ๐Ÿ• for @theporkgirl that was stellar! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

  • An Instagrammable Wall blast from my past! I used to work at @globaledmonton doing a bunch of things over a few years.. video editing, web producing, news producing, writing and helping people in the Troubleshooter department! Been wanting to photograph this wall for awhile now (#IGWallsofYEG) and finally did this weekend. โ˜บ๏ธApparently it's also a #PokemonGo hot spot lol. ๐Ÿ˜…

  • Had an awesome time touring Instagrammable Walls of Chinatown / east Downtown this weekend with my co-host @britl & this great group of people! There is no shortage of things to do in Edmonton in the summer so I definitely appreciated these guys choosing an #IGWallsofYEG #photowalk! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป This wall is called #ThunderBirdAlley on 105 Ave between 96 and 97 Street. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Would largely go unnoticed for those walking or driving along 97 Street but definitely deserves some attention! Another walk is in the works for September, stay tuned! โ˜บ๏ธ

  • Dreaming of gelato. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿง I was out in #SturgeonCounty tonight at the annual Sturgeon County Bounty #CulinaryCookout and this raspberry lime gelato from @davincigelato was lovely. The #SturgeonCountyBounty is such a stellar event - think Taste of Edmonton & Heritage Festival with awesome #tasteab food but more of a relaxed, less crowded environment, great portion sizes / value, that fresh country air and lovely live music! Mark your calendars for next year- add it to your summer festival list! Check my IG Stories and my pal @argenplath's feed for more scenes from the festival! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • A feast for dinner tonight with @littlmissandrea and our baes at the new Nara Chicken & Tonkatsu on the west end! ๐Ÿ˜‹ We basically tried their whole menu ๐Ÿ˜… and thought it was great! A pretty casual spot in a strip mall, with quick service, affordable prices, and tasty dishes! Welcome to the neighbourhood, Nara. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป
