Why every dog should be eating fresh food.
Over the past few years, countless new pet products have become available so we can completely spoil our pups (yes, my dog does need his own puppy activity tracker, thank you for asking). From toy delivery services to on-demand dog walkers, most of these new products and services have made it a whole lot easier to give our dogs the best quality of life possible.
Recently, the new pet product on the block is healthier food. Which seems like old news, until you see what the possibilities now are. We're not talking about another grain-free kibble here. We're about fresh dog food made with real ingredients like meats and vegetables. (And none of the bad stuff found in mass-produced pet foods.) Even better, it costs the same as premium kibble (or less, if you take advantage of great introductory offers).
After just a little research, it seems fresh dog food does more than look better than kibble: veterinarians say it has real benefits that dogs experience in as little as a couple weeks, and extended research shows lifelong health improvements.
Fresh feeders report seeing countless health benefits in their dogs, including:
- A softer, shinier coat
- Smaller, firmer stools
- More energy
- More excitement at mealtime
- Relief from allergies and other chronic conditions
One owner, who feeds fresh meals from popular NomNomNow, couldn't say enough about the results.
"In terms of health benefits, the impact has been significant and her veterinarians say Bella is one of the healthiest bulldogs they have seen as she lost extra weight, gained stamina, got a healthy coat and showed overall health improvements and in turn reduced our vet bills," owner Bennet tells us. "Even people on the street stop to comment about how healthy she looks and ask us for tips, especially with regards to food. For a dog, meals are one of the biggest pleasures they have and we wanted to make every meal count in Bella's life. If you want your dog to eat healthy, enjoy their meals and live life to it's fullest, switch to fresh food from NomNomNow."
If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that our dogs are members of our families. And, like every other member of the family, they deserve nothing but the best.
Hearing about fresh dog food, it suddenly became clear that frequently updating the type of 'natural' kibble we buy is hardly an advancement compared to the many other quality-of-life improvements our dogs are experiencing these days. And, at the end of the day, which will help my dog be happier (and healthier)? Toys are great, but if our dog's food is filled with non-natural ingredients, we have to wonder if we're shortening the time we get to enjoy together.
