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.

  • Really enjoyed this trifle from brunch today at @fortedmontonpark! 😊 It's always fun being a tourist in your own town. #FortEdmontonPark has a bunch of #Halloween activities going on this month, weekend brunch and did you know you can book a room for a #staycation in their 1920s hotel #HotelSelkirk? Thanks @catbangel for inviting @mikethyking and I to brunch back in time! ⏳

  • This week we celebrated my mom & dad's birthdays with a feast at @chaforteapalace! πŸŽ‰ (Their birthdays are 4 days from each other). Dad doesn't like birthdays though so when we said "Happy birthday!" he replied with "You mean Unhappy Birthday. πŸ‘¨πŸ»" lol. Sure dad. πŸ˜‚

  • I don't know if anyone has noticed but I've been alternating food / people / food / people posts for over a month now and it's taken quite a bit of dedication to the grid but I'm doing it. It's fun too lol. 
This is the #instalife πŸ˜‚

  • Got to try the @fairmontmac's new "Beast Board" today with @letsomnom and oh my gah is it a delicious feast. 🀀 For $99, this board feeds two people and includes your choice of 3 proteins (and chef's choice of vegetables / sides). πŸ™ŒπŸ» Not sure what to rave about first.. delicious beets, risotto and whipped potatoes. Even better duck, lamb, and salmon. Excellent pea purΓ©e. This is officially on the dinner menu as of Oct. 12 but you can order it off menu until then (just ask your server!) Don't forget the Fairmont also has a harvest farm to table dinner with @myprairiegardens next Friday Oct. 13! Check their page for more details @fairmontmac. And Happy Long Weekend Friday!!! 😍
