During the meet, the 27 Dresses actress talked about several aspects of her new venture and explained why she chose to get involved in the pet food industry.

The actress and dog lover’s products were made available to the public last month.

Heigl began by talking about how his interest in dog food was partially inspired by his research into healthy living.

She recalled that as she became “more and more aware of gut healing and nutrition, and the connection between our gut and our brain… and I thought, ‘Well , why is it different? How different is it for our animals?’

The Grey’s Anatomy actress went on to say that she tried cooking for her dogs and trying “human-grade” food plans for her pets.

The Primetime Emmy Award-winning performer went on to remark that she set out to create dog food with “as much healthy nutrition as possible.”

Heigl also talked about the “trendy” herbal supplements she included in the formula, including Lion’s Mane Mushroom.

“People add it to their coffee, add it to their smoothies,” she said of the plant-based adaptogens in her formula. “We can also give the dog some of that extra help.”

For a good cause: The artist was keen to talk about how sales of her products would also benefit the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, which she previously co-founded with her mother

The performer also made a point of explaining how the sales of her products would also benefit the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, which she had previously co-founded with her mother.

The foundation serves to raise awareness of pet issues in the United States, including abuse, which it described as “a huge problem in our country for these pets”.

Heigl added that “food is that silver lining for us financially to try to keep doing the work that we do.”

The performer also expressed that she wanted to branch out in terms of producing Badlands Ranch.

“I wish we added supplements for things like anxiety. We see … a lot of these dogs coming out of a shelter or kennel where their anxiety is very high,” she said.

Heigl also revealed that she has a total of nine dogs in her home, including the two Rottweiler puppies she is currently raising.

The actress appeared in several promotional images for her brand which were shared on her official Instagram account.
