Ok....this isn't a real spoiler alert. But did you know that less-processed foods are healthier for your dog?
Of course you did :)
The FDA published that over a 7 year period:
- over 153 million lbs of treats were recalled
- over 151 million lbs of kibble was recalled
- over 94 million lbs of canned food was recalled
- almost 2 million lbs of raw food was recalled
over 218,000 lbs of other foods were recalled
That's why our preference has been on gently cooked dog food - cooked at the lowest viable temperature to remove the risk of bacteria but preserve the nutrients.
Aside from many issues of heavily processed foods, there is also strong implications of chronic health conditions. We have seen a rise in lower health related quality of life, spiraling health costs and shortened lifespans in our pups with the rise of feeding processed foods.
What can I do today?
You can add in gently cooked and balanced meals such as Puppy Gang Fresh Foods to top up your dog's existing meals by reducing existing food and adding in some whole foods, or you can make the switch to a whole foods diet for your pup.
