We hope to answer in this short read some of the biggest and most frequently asked questions and illuminate some of the incredible secrets behind why more and more dog lovers are making the switch to healthier, fresher, more wholesome dog food.
1. More Energy and Vitality
As scary as that may sound to some, a balanced diet of high quality proteins and vegetables can massively improve your dog’s overall energy and vitality.
A great way of visualising this is the analogy of eating fast food as a human, if we were to eat nothing but fast food packed with excessive sodium, saturated fats and low-quality meat and veg (that’s if there is any veg), you would expect to feel pretty horrible and lethargic.
The same goes for dog food.
A lot of dog food on supermarket shelves are made with low quality meats that are actually legally unacceptable to be sold for human consumption (that’s quite concerning if you ask us…).
To continue the likeness with humans, for a dog to be eating human-grade and high quality meat and veg is like being on the world’s healthiest diet for your entire life.
The best part is your furry friend will love it, they may even think that you’ve accidentally given them your food! With better tasting food that’s also the best out there for them, it’s an absolute no-brainer to get real, wholesome food in their bowl ASAP.
2. Less Trips To The Vet
Nobody wants their best friend in need of medical attention.
A sudden or unexpected trip to the vet is always a horrible and scary experience, not to mention it's bound to be an expensive one.
Healthier, fresher, higher quality food plays a big role in keeping a dog in tip top shape, inside and out.
With numerous health benefits involved with certain ingredients, it’s important to seek out food with a variety of not only meat and produce.
Ingredients like omega 3 oil as an essential fatty acid, cod liver oil to fight off skin and coat health issues, turmeric for inflammation, kelp powder for thyroid function and rich in vitamin K for bone health, and other ingredients with active purpose.
A combination of purposeful and health benefiting ingredients can seriously increase your dog’s overall health and wellbeing.
3. Shinier Coat and Healthier Skin
As just mentioned, certain oils and minerals can dramatically assist in a dog’s coat and skin health. It’s becoming more and more common to see mentions of dull, ashy or even patchy coats among dogs, not to mention the rampant issue of Aussie dogs experiencing skin irritation and sores.
It is well documented that ingredients such as cod liver oil are beneficial in maintaining a healthy coat, as well as being great for skin health. A simple change to their diet may contribute to a far softer, shinier and healthier coat, and can sooth bouts of skin sensitivity and irritation.
4. Better smelling backyard
Now this one might sound more beneficial for you than for them, and there’s no lying, we would all rather not endure the less than glamorous job of collecting horrid smelling gifts left by our good buddies.
With amazing benefits, fresh and wholesome food is a great way to better their digestive health, and you’ll be rewarded by it too.
A survey from Perfect Bowl’s customers reported that once on a purely fresh and wholesome diet, droppings lost a considerable amount of their bad odour and was far less unpleasant to deal with.
Furthermore, due to increased gut and digestive health, it was also found that stools were far more consistent and healthy.
5. Longer, Happier Life
There is a big difference between surviving and thriving, and after reading all of the above, I’m sure you’re seeing how an entire life eating high quality, fresh food is immensely important in ensuring a long, healthy and happy life.
