Fresh Food for Australian Terriers
Descended from English breeds, Australian terriers developed the requisite ruggedness for chasing rodents Down Under. Witness the compact long body, weather-proof double-layer coat, and can-do attitude of the country’s first homegrown breed. True terriers, Aussies are task-oriented and benefit from intensive training and supervised exercise, lest their digging, barking, and prey instincts override their manners. They “get” and get along with children and enjoy family time, especially the active kind. Springing from lively eyes and a furry topknot, Aussies’ distinctive cuteness matches their perky personalities. And their fur accents, notably their ruff and apron, require only a weekly brush.
What’s the best dog food for Australian terriers?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Australian terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and a tousling that topknot.
Why fresh is best for your Australian Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Australian Terriers’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.Feed Fresh Today
Australian terriers are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Australian terrier.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Australian terrier's health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!
Know what’s in the bowl
For Australian terriers with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Australian terrier's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
