"With the introduction of Wellness Healthy Indulgence, we are respondingto our consumer's resounding demands for a wheat-gluten free alternative thatsatisfies cats who prefer hearty sliced entrees with gravy versus pate stylefood," said Wellness CEO Deborah Ellinger. "We're proud to offer this uniquepouch entree, which took years to innovate. Wellness Healthy Indulgencefeatures the most nutritious, healthy and tasty ingredients used in thecorrect proportions and balance. As we strive to help more cats live well, eatwell and ultimately be well, we would settle for nothing less."
The creamy sauces in Wellness Healthy Indulgence also help felines stayproperly hydrated and healthy. Cats, just like people, need water to keeptheir bodies cool and maintain the health of their circulatory,cardiovascular, renal and other systems. Unlike people, however, cats can'thelp themselves to a bottle of water from the refrigerator whenever theirbodies are crying out for hydration. Even the presence of a perpetually fullwater dish may not prompt cats to take in as much water as they need tomaintain optimal health. Feeding Wellness Healthy Indulgence is a nutritiousand great-tasting way to increase a cat's water intake.
Wellness Healthy Indulgence varieties come in 3-ounce pouches and areavailable nationwide at independent pet specialty retail shops. To find anauthorized Wellness retailer, please visit www.wellnesspetfood.com.
