Nutram Launches #BetterTogether Campaign with Cinemagraph Holiday Cards to Benefit Animal Rescue

Canadian holistic pet food brand partners with Flixel Photos to highlight influencers and their pets

TORONTO, Nov. 26, 2015 /CNW/ - Nutram Pet Products, a holistic pet wellness company that launched earlier this year, partnered with Flixel Photos, a visual storytelling company, to create custom holiday cinemagraph cards to launch the Nutram #BetterTogether campaign. The campaign is based on Nutram's line of holistic pet food for dogs and cats crafted with Optimum Combinations, ingredients that complement each other for specific health benefits.

Like Optimum Combinations, pets and their pet parents are also 'better together,' so to kick off the #BetterTogether campaign Nutram created the first holiday cinemagraph cards featuring Canadian influencers and their pets. Cinemagraphs are still photos with an element of movement, and influencers including technology expert Amber MacArthur and pets including Remix the Dog posed for the series, which can be found on Nutram's social media channels.

"We put care into our ingredients and know that certain ingredients go better together, much like the mutually beneficial relationship between pets and pet parents," said Heather McKay, associate brand manager, Nutram. "Our Optimum Combinations are paired strategically and in a holistic way to amplify the benefits so pets can live long and healthy lives."

During the month of December, Nutram will donate $5 to Oxford County Animal Rescue on behalf of Canadians who post a photo or Flixel with their pet. Nutram encourages families across Canada to support pet shelters by taking a family photo or Flixel with their beloved pet(s) this holiday using the hashtag #BetterTogether, tagging Nutram social handles:
