You Asked, We Answered! NPP Talks Nutrition

At NPP, we’re passionate about the health and wellness of all your pets. Just for fun, we sat down with each team member individually and asked the same 3 questions, without sharing their answers with the rest of the team. Here are their answers!

If you could give ONE piece of advice to someone feeding kibble, what would it be?


Jenna: Add some fresh food to the bowl.

Beth: Hydrate it.

Leah: If kibble is the best you can feed, add something fresh to it.

Savannah: At least hydrate it, always. Kibble is so dehydrating.

Caitlin: Hydrate it.  

Tina: Add SOMETHING fresh.

Nikki: Feed the BEST you can afford, and always add moisture with fresh fruits and veggies.

Nicci: Add SOME fresh food to the bowl.

Ashley: Make sure you hydrate it.

What ONE piece of information do you find yourself repeating most often to pet owners?


Jenna: A little bit of fresh food in the bowl goes a long way!

Beth: You’re overfeeding.

Leah: Kibble is VERY dehydrating and full of carbohydrates.

Savannah: At least consider the benefits of a raw diet.

Caitlin: You’re overfeeding.

Tina: You’re feeding too much.

Nikki: You’re feeding too much.

Nicci: Your dog isn’t allergic to chicken.

Ashley: Don’t go by the feeding recommendations on your pet food bag.

What’s the #1 reason you would recommend a fresh food diet to pet owners?


Jenna: Your pet’s health will improve ten-fold by replacing any processed kibble with fresh food. 

Beth: It’s the cleanest way to feed your pet.

Leah: It’s the least processed diet available. You can SEE the food in it!

Savannah: Because it’s so much better for them – it improves EVERYTHING for your pet.

Caitlin: It’s beneficial to dogs with any health issues.

Tina: For the same reason WE need fresh food in our diet.

Nikki: It’s healthier, for a fuller enriched life.

Nicci: Decreased inflammation.

Ashley: Animals in the wild will never seek out to find a kibble tree. They will always seek out fresh food to survive. It’s in their nature. 

About author

Jenna enthusiastically joined our team in early 2021 bringing nearly a decade of pet industry knowledge and experience along with her. She is proud mom to cats Aerie and Spook who are both credited with her interest into pet nutrition. Quickly Jenna realized that there was a lot to be desired for honest, unbiased and accurate information within the industry and she knew she wanted to help change that. Much like the team at NPP she believes in the value individualized diet, fresh food and tailored advice can provide for overall health, regardless of age. She also is the mom to 4 sugar gliders, Crumb, Crosby, Bindi and Gatsby which helps bring additional small animal knowledge to our robust team. When she’s not helping pet parents at NPP Jenna can be found hiking with her husband Adam, horseback riding and painting pet portraits.
