GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dollar General is expanding its pet food assortment with the addition of BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Premium Dog Food. Manufactured by Mars Petcare US, the new product line offers high-quality, protein-packed dog food at a great value. BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Brand is available exclusively at Dollar General stores.
"Dollar General is proud to add BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Premium Food for Dogs to our pet food assortment," said Todd Vasos, Dollar General's chief merchandising officer. "Many of our customers count on Dollar General for all their pets' needs, and we are pleased to broaden our assortment with BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Brand, which offers great quality at a great value."
BUTCHER'S SELECTS® products bring together the taste dogs crave with the nutrition they need. With real lamb as the number one ingredient, BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Premium Dry Food for Dogs includes natural sources such as glucosamine to promote healthy joints and prebiotics to help support digestive health. Palatability tests prove the BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Lamb & Rice Recipe is preferred to Eukanuba's own Natural Lamb & Rice Formula but at a value driven price.
The BUTCHER'S SELECTS® line of wet dog food includes a variety of Premium Cuts® in gravy and ground entrées, each nutritionally balanced and made for your dog's health and enjoyment. Dogs love the meaty taste of Chicken and Rice Dinner, Country Stew, and Oven Roasted Chicken Recipe. BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Brand also offers a variety formulated specifically for puppies that is made with DHA to promote healthy brain development.
"Mars Petcare US is excited to partner with Dollar General to launch BUTCHER'S SELECTS® Premium Dog Food", said Chris Hamilton, Mars Petcare US general manager. "The BUTCHER'S SELECTS® product line gives Dollar General customers another great Mars Petcare product option that offers high-quality nutrition at a value."
