What are you feeding your dog?
Recently there was a series aired online called "The Truth About Pet Cancer" which you may have watched. In episode 2, I was shocked by learning what actually goes in to commercial kibble for dogs and cats. Don't let the fancy packaging and trendy product descriptions fool you, there is a lot more that goes into these products and some of the ingredients are actually quite horrific. I stopped feeding our dogs kibble a few years ago when they switched over to a raw diet. I always made sure I checked the top ingredient to make sure it was a protein and not a grain, but that was about the extent of it.
A dog food which is not only raw and healthy, but ethical too
So what do we feed our dogs? For those who read my recent blog post "Making my own healthy treats for the #3dogkateers" you would know that I now make all my own treats for our dogs with a dehydrator. It's so important to me to know what our dogs are eating and know that I'm not doing them any harm, and giving them the best opportunity at living a long and healthy life.
Late last year a friend told me about an ethically produced raw food she was feeding her dog. She knew this was a topic of great interest to me, and she thoughtfully gave me a sample back from her own supply to try on our dogs. Well I did, and they absolutely loved it! The food is by Frontier Pets and I have been a happy customer since the beginning of the year when I placed my first order. They totally align with my values for ethical farming and great healthy food for our dogs.
I did my research before purchasing the food just to make sure I was dealing with the ethical company they said they were on their website. There are some great reviews which I've linked at the bottom of this blog.
Check out this video from Di at Frontier Pets ... I had shivers up my spine when I first watched it. It spoke to me and matched my values and I was so overwhelmed to find a pet food company who feels this way and wants to make a difference to the way our animals are treated. I just love the title too "Your Dog Can Change The World"!
Frontier Pets produce great healthy dog treats too!
In addition to their great ethically farmed meals for dogs, Frontier Pets also sell a range of dog treats which are also ethically sourced, human-grade ingredients and come in sizes for small, medium and large dogs. Choose from Paddywhack Beef or Pork Skin Strips. I purchased the beef strips in my last order, and the #3Dogkateers have given them a big paws up!
Dinner time for the 3 Dogkateers
We feed our 3 Dogkateers a mix of Frontier Pets, BARF, Ziwi Peak and fresh meat (such as fish offcuts as an extra special treat). We like to give ours variety, which is why we mix them around, but the Frontier is served every night, and the home made treats are served in the morning.
They also love a bowl each of freshly sliced carrots for dessert every evening.
