Here’s Why Your Dog Needs A Fresh New Diet

Keep your dog happy and healthy with fresh meals delivered straight to your door!

Editor’s Note: Before making significant changes to your dog’s diet, always consult with a licensed veterinarian. Only you and your vet can decide which diet is best for your dog’s specific and unique needs. 

As loving pet parents, we do whatever we can to keep our dogs happy and healthy so our fur babies can have the best and longest lives possible. An important component to this is by feeding our pets a healthy and balanced diet that provides our fur babies with the nutrition they need to thrive. In an effort to do this, dog owners all over the country are switching their pups from a diet of questionable kibble to high quality, fresh meals. New research shows that many brands of dry food mislead consumers by using ingredients they claim they don’t, and not using essential ingredients as advertised. This is on top of growing concerns surrounding how kibble is manufactured and the nutrients it provides. 

Although kibble is convenient to serve and easy to buy in bulk, several problems could arise from feeding your dog dry food. For example, many pet owners don’t know that kibble can go bad in the first place, or that it can become rancid or rotten much sooner than anyone would expect. Proper storage can help lengthen the shelf life of dry food, but generally kibble goes bad in about 2 weeks once it’s been exposed to oxygen. Unknowingly feeding dogs rancid kibble introduces toxins into their body and increases the likelihood that your dog will experience issues with digestion. 

Unfortunately, many dry foods are over-processed, have little moisture, and don’t contain enough nutrients in the first place. The use of high heat in the kibble manufacturing process destroys the viability of essential vitamins and minerals, and the amount of remaining nutrients quickly diminishes once the food turns rancid. This means that your dog may be essentially eating “fillers,” or the animal equivalent of human fast food.

For pet parents who have become frustrated with the downfalls of kibble, the availability of fresh food is life changing. Not only do fresh meals taste better, but they give dogs a new lease on life in both the short term and the long term. According to the American Kennel Club, dogs on a fresh-food diet will reap several benefits for their overall wellbeing, including enhanced heart health, increased energy levels, shinier coats, better smelling breath, improved eyesight, and better digestion. Instead of feeding dogs ingredients that have been condensed into tiny balls or pellets, dogs are served fresh meals with healthy ingredients and human-quality food. With several fresh food services available to deliver ready-to-serve meals to your doorstep, there is no excuse not to feed your dog the best of the best! Check out some of these options your dog will love!
