Having a pet is like having a child at times. You want the best for them, and that often means spending more than you had originally planned to make sure they get what they deserve. When Ferguson first arrived I fed him on a premium dry food but he wasn’t keen. He would leave it until lunchtime and then have the worst bowel movements you can imagine. His energy levels were erratic and it all came to ahead when I woke in the early hours to the worst smell imaginable, and you can imagine the state of my kitchen floor… I won’t go into details but I decided something had to change, so we went raw. A raw diet isn’t for everyone, it is exactly as it sounds. Feeding raw meat, the way they would eat in the wild. It has done wonders for Ferguson. His bowel movements are a lot less and a much better consistency (I know, I know, but it needed to be said!), his energy levels are more stable throughout the day, and he seems genuinely happier in his little life. It becomes a problem when we want to travel as storing raw meat can be a pain. So, when we visited Glasgow, we tried a new type of dog food, Freshpet.
The Freshpet ethos is simple – to give pets the food they deserve and to improve their lives through a healthier diet. The ingredients are fresh, as you would expect from the name, made with no fillers or artificial additives. They contain a 100% complete and balanced meal for your pet with essential vitamins to keep your pet healthy. The Freshpet food range is perfect for picky eaters, the proteins provide more fatty acids to promote a shinier coat and help to maintain a healthy weight.
Freshpet comes in bags or tubes, with the tubes being perfect for travel. They are much less messy than raw food and you can cut into the tubes, before peeling away the casing, to use the exact amount. Obviously I cant attest to how they taste but it looks really tasty and not like dog food at all! Ferguson loves it and sits by his bowl waiting for it to be put down at mealtimes.
