Hi, guys! We’re back with another blog post about Cocoa’s favorite food, Freshpet. And she wants to tell you all about the benefits she’s experienced.
We recently posted about keeping both you AND your pup healthy when life is busy with HelloFresh and Freshpet.
It’s been 30 days that both Cocoa and I have benefited from eating a completely fresh diet.
And the benefits have been aplenty.
What are the benefits of feeding your pet a fresh food diet? Cocoa and I would like to share her experience with you!
The Benefits of Feeding Your Pet a Fresh Food Diet
Six benefits of feeding your pet a fresh food diet, from healthier skin to higher energy levels.
Fresh food helps keep your pet’s coat shiny, healthy, and soft. The fatty acids in fresh food towers over what’s found in dry kibble, which aids in both hydration and preventing shedding.
Higher Energy Levels
Feeding your pet a fresh food diet gives them the maximum dose of nutrient and vitamins. Fresh fruit, vegetables, and animal proteins in your pet’s diet provide them with antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and fiber. This balanced and nutritious diet converts into more sustainable energy for your pet.
Fresh food containing ample fruit and vegetables are particularly digestible for pets due to their high fiber content. This prevents upset tummies and results in fewer and more regular bowel movements.
Fresh meals with higher protein and fewer fillers help your pet maintain a healthy weight. The nutrients and amino acids build lean muscle, and just like with humans, pets who maintain a healthy weight are linked with longer lifespans.
So many pets suffer from allergies and it can be so difficult to narrow down the exact cause. Fresh, grain-free, and filler-free food can be the answer to your pet’s food allergy woes.
No ‘Surprise’ Ingredients
Ever really read the list of ingredients on that bag of dog food? A lot of it may surprise you… if you can even pronounce it! Feeding your pet a fresh diet with limited ingredients (all of which you know) gives peace of mind to both you and your pet. Plus, it’s amazing for picky eaters.
All of these incredible benefits of feeding your pet a fresh food diet is why we love feeding Cocoa Freshpet. With Freshpet, I know exactly what I’m giving my furry best friend.
For example, the first five ingredients in Cocoa’s favorite Freshpet recipe are as follows: Chicken, Turkey, Chicken Liver, Chicken Broth, and Eggs. The entire bag only contains 12 ingredients (all of which I can pronounce), including carrots, peas, brown rice, and natural flavors. The previous brand of dry high-end kibble I was feeding Cocoa had 43 ingredients.
On a more personal note when it comes to Cocoa, she can be an extremely picky eater. She’s gone through dozens of different food brands throughout the years, often getting bored with her food. She will often not eat at all for a day or two, and we’ve had many issues trying to get her to eat. Not with Freshpet. No, not at all. She literally follows us around the kitchen as we are putting the food into her bowl, wagging her tail and twirling around, and runs to her bowl as soon as it’s set on the ground. This has never, in the entire six years I have had her, happened before.
She goes absolutely bonkers for the Dog Joy Turkey Bacon, too, which she’s sniffing out in the photo above!
I love Cocoa with all of my heart and want the best for her. She is absolutely part of my family and I always focus on feeding my family the best that I absolutely can.
That’s why I was so, so happy when Freshpet joined forces with HelloFresh! From my previous post, it’s obvious how much I love HelloFresh. It’s convenient, healthy, and fun. Triple threat.
It’s been a savior and made the past 30 days an absolute breeze.
I mean, Cocoa can’t be the only one eating great, right?!
