Dog Food Database and Calorie Tracking Now Available
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new web tools for our dog loving readers, the SlimDoggy Food Database and the SlimDoggy Calorie Tracker.
First, we have published our dog food data including calorie amounts, macronutrients (protein, fat and carbs), ingredients, and our Slimdoggy ranking. Use this tool to learn about your dog’s food quality. You can look up foods based on their Brand or quality ranking. Use the search boxes to find foods that contain specific ingredients, or, if your dog has allergies, that don’t contain specific ingredients. We do require that you register if you want to see the full set of information.
Second, we have created a calorie tracking tool that you can use to track your dog’s daily activities and estimate their daily calorie burn. This is similar to our PetsMove tool except that it translates activities into calorie burning estimates. We created this in response to our readers who don’t have an iPhone and can’t use the SlimDoggy app. You also need to register to use this tool so that we can save your dog’s profile and activity data.
Please note that your account on SlimDoggy.com will not be linked up with your SlimDoggy app account or your Petsmove.org account (if you have either). We may decide to do so in the future, depending on the feedback and usage patterns we see. That said, it takes less than a minute to create an account and get your dog’s profile completed. And the daily activity tracking is really simple and takes only seconds to log your dog’s activity.
Try out the new tools and let us know what you think. We have created them to help you keep your dog happy and healthy and to provide more transparency into dog food products.
