Why My Dog – and Vet! – Approve of This Pet Food

“She’s a little overweight” was something I’d never thought I would hear my dog’s vet say during her checkup. But indeed I did! My dog Hershey (an adorable little Malshi) is an extremely picky eater. Sometimes, I would have to beg her to eat her food. So, I was shocked when I heard my veterinarian say that Hershey was a bit fluffy and it wasn’t just her hair.

The truth is, Hershey stayed with my father for 3 weeks while I traveled around Europe. During that time, he did what most grandparents do, spoil the baby. Hershey didn’t get much exercise but received tons of treats and I bet some table scraps (even though I’ve said time and time again to not do that). Regardless of who was at fault, I needed a game plan to get my baby girl back in shape.

My vet recommended I try The Farmer’s Dog. I looked it up and was impressed with what I found and immediately placed my first order. Hershey was just as excited about getting it as I was!

Real food made fresh for dogs

What is The Farmer’s Dog? It’s a convenient pet-food service. They offer fresh food that is healthy, nutritious, and delicious packed with the power of real food for dogs. Get this, it actually was developed by veterinary nutritionists! It’s human-grade food made with the highest quality ingredients without preservatives. I love that it is nutritionally complete and balanced for dogs.

They ship the food within days of cooking it. It comes frozen with a nutrition meal plan specifically for your dog. Ordering is made easy and you fill out a quick survey about your dog and your goals. I really like that they offer flexible and convenient shipping plans in case you change your mind about the amount of food you need.

Excited for mealtime and perfect poops

Here are some things I’ve noticed since I switched to The Farmer’s Dog:

  • Hershey is finally excited when it’s mealtime now! I don’t have to beg her to try the food, she comes immediately over when she hears me pick up her bowl. She eats it all up as if it’s a treat.
  • Her breath smells better
  • Her coat is softer and shinier
  • Fewer tears and eye boogers near her eye
  • Perfect poops! Her little dumps are solid and easy to pick up. Gosh, it makes me so happy when I don’t have to wipe her tush because her poops are healthier.

No more mystery kibble

Our dogs deserve better than those balls of mystery we call kibble. I don’t know about you but I find peace of mind knowing what my dog is consuming. I love giving my dog homemade food but it can be really time-consuming. I used to batch homemade food to use as a topper on my dog’s kibble to get her to eat. The Farmer’s Dog allows me to feed her good food when I don’t have time to prepare a batch of homemade food for her.

I love knowing that her food is made with human-grade ingredients. Fun fact: it’s gently steamed to help retain its maximum nutritional value. To be completely honest, the recipes look like something I’d eat! Since I had to put Hershey on a little diet, I really like that the food is formulated by board-certified veterinary nutritionists to be complete and balanced. I was able to choose from a variety of fresh, personally portioned recipes including chicken, beef, turkey, and more!

The takeaway

I absolutely recommend giving The Farmer’s Dog a try. It’s made both my and Hershey’s life so much better and easier. When you sign up, you’ll get 50% off a trial box with two weeks of fresh food for your pet to try. I’d like to warn you that your pet is going to love it.
