The Puppy Gang Fresh Foods Story
Puppy Gang Fresh Food was formed in Toronto in 2018 where Kalinda, a Schnauzer was adopted by Marisa. Kalinda had been a breeder at a puppy mill and was overweight, sick and struggling to survive. She had a range of illnesses including hair loss, thyroid issues, a hernia, needed to have her teeth removed and could barely walk struggling with knee and joint issues. The veterinarian and shelter didn’t know if she would ever make a full recovery.
They recommended feeding Kalinda a variety of ‘premium brands’ of pet food, but she was lethargic, struggled with endurance and wasn’t losing weight. Upon significant research and education, we discovered the pet food industry was unregulated and many ‘reputable’ brands contained ingredients that over long periods of time may be harmful to dogs.
Finally working with a holistic veterinarian on what nutritious foods dogs should be eating, Kalinda started eating home cooked meals involving a balanced and healthy diet.
Within a few months, the change in Kalinda was significant. From 11kg and struggling to walk Kalinda got down to 6.5 kg, was energetic and able to run. Kalinda is now joyful, happy and healthy. It all came down to her diet.
