Is Bespoke Dog Food Made By an AI The Future of Canine Nutrition?
Smart technologies and innovative ideas are shaping our future- why not our pet’s too?
The topic of pet nutrition is a hot one: with countless cat and dog food brands on the market and the growing popularity of raw and homemade cooked diets, it can be incredibly hard getting to the bottom of what meal plan is actually the best one for your four-legged baby. All pet parents want to treat their pet to the best they can, but, sometimes, no matter how expensive the kibble is or how your furball likes to eat it, it simply doesn’t cut it when it comes to their well-being and nutritive needs. So how about a unique blend, specially tailored for your pet alone?
A pet food company from the United Kingdom is making history with their revolutionary, algorithm-powered dog food. People behind Tails.com were able to create an algorithm that’s fed by years- worth of veterinary expertise and nutritional research, and that can, in one simple step, create an ideal blend for your pet’s unique needs. All you need to do is answer nine questions about your precious pet, and let the artificial intelligence do what it does best.
Once your pet’s nutritional profile is complete, the company is able to produce custom kibble that would later be delivered right to your front door. And when I say custom, I truly mean it: everything from the kibble’s shape to every single ingredient is chosen to fit your pet perfectly. For instance, a sensitive small breed dog would get a blend that’s formulated without grains, with added probiotics and high-fiber ingredients, and with small kibble pieces that would be easy to chew, with just the right amount of specific vitamins and other nutrients that are suited for their age and lifestyle. Amazing, right?
Additionally, you’ll get the serving size recommendations made to fit your dog’s specific activity level, age, the fact that they’re spayed or not… In a nutshell, everything about this specially-formulated food is about providing your pet with bespoke food that’s made to keep them as healthy and happy as it is possible.
Knowing how much pet pawrents worry about the well-being of their furry friends, it could be that AI-powered bespoke dog food is just what we all need to put our mind to rest. Sure, getting high-quality kibble is a safe bet that you’re providing a good diet for your pet, but if you’d have the option to get them dry or canned food that has been formulated for them alone? I know I’d jump at the opportunity in a second- balancing the needs and preferences between 7 dogs in a household is not an easy feat, and having an AI do it for me would make my life infinitely easier.
