How to care for your fur babies in a pandemic

When you scroll through social media, you’ll probably see a friend or two with a dog. The pandemic is a time where everyone is staying at home, so it explains why many people seek companionship by adopting new pets. 

After all, a dog has always been man’s best friend! Our personal favorites, for instance, are the ever-so lovable shih tzus and chow chows, which are just some of the cutest Chinese dog breeds that we know. As a result, it isn’t very surprising to see more people embracing a dog’s love and companionship during this quarantine period. 

An article in The Washington Post reported that the surge of adoptions and sales began as early as March 2020. Similarly, the Industrial Association of Pet Care Producers in Germany stated that the number of pets in households rose to nearly 35 million. Aside from groceries and e-commerce platforms, pet stores, animal rescue shelters, and private breeders witnessed the rise in customers as the pandemic continued.


In the Philippines, veterinary clinics have also experienced a sudden surge in the number of customers as dog owners hope to provide their furbabies with proper care. This is only natural. Dog owners are now more than ever valuing their time with their beloved best friends.

And how can they not? While dogs cannot express their love through words or gifts, they’re always there to remind you how much you mean to them in their own special way — a happy comfort to be found in both Chinoy and non-Chinoy homes. Some of a dog’s love languages include giving hugs, leaning on your leg, jumping excitedly when you arrive home, or following you wherever you go. You can also share your inner thoughts or personal dreams with them. Behind their adorable faces are open hearts for their hoomans, always.

Of course, getting a dog is the easiest part of being a furparent. Owning a furbaby doesn’t stop with posting their cutest photos on social media or leaving them alone when you’re too busy. It’s a responsibility that furparents should embrace wholeheartedly.

Being a responsible furparent starts with giving your dogs nutritious food. It’s not enough to grab the first bag of dog food that you see in the store. Before deciding on which dog food brand to buy, you must take note of its nutrients and health benefits. In addition, it’s important to be aware of your dog’s allergies and preferences.

Canis Prime Adult Dog Food, for example, presents furparents with a budget-friendly diet that comes with health benefits for your furbaby’s needs. It prioritizes your doggo’s health by providing the right amount of nutrition in every meal.

Not only is Canis Prime packed with Prime Tech that comes in an easy-to-digest formula for your dogs, it is also enriched with probiotics for better nutrient absorption and stronger immune system, Omega 3 and 6 to nourish their skin and coat, and Yucca extracts to reduce stool odors. Moreover, aside from giving your dog the nutrients it needs, Canis Prime also protects their dental hygiene by reducing cavity buildup on their teeth and gums.



Canis Prime is a trustworthy companion in protecting your furbaby’s health and well-being. It is also a favorite product of Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno for his lovable companion “Yorme” the dog.

Being a responsible pet owner begins with giving your dog yummy and healthy food. Made with outstanding nutrition and taste to ensure your dog’s prime condition, Canis Prime Adult Dog Food is the best way to start.
