From a Vet Tech: “Why I Add Fresh Food for my Dogs”
I have two dogs: Tyson (a Pit mix) and Pongo (a Dalmatian). I feed them salmon kibble but add a lot of fresh foods to their bowls like raw meat toppers, raw organic eggs, goat milk, bone broth, blueberries, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, and bananas. The biggest benefit is that I know they stay hydrated with all these toppers. On top of that, their coats shine, their teeth are pearly white, they’re fit and lean, and they’re happy!
I pay extra close attention to my Dalmatian’s diet because they’re really prone to urinary crystals and stones. I focus on keeping him hydrated because it helps to flush the bad stuff out. Since adding fresh food to my Dalmatian’s diet, his urinalysis results have been much better – a huge decrease in crystals!
I can go on and on about the benefits of adding fresh food to a pet’s diet but these are just a couple of reasons why I’ll never go back to plain kibble!
