Fresh Food for Cesky Terriers
A rare and relatively new breed created in the 1940s, the Cesky Terrier is a cross between a Scottish terrier and a Sealyham terrier. The national dog of the Czech Republic, these short, muscular pups stand no more than 13 inches tall and weigh anywhere from 14 to 24 pounds. Bred to hunt, they have a high prey drive and should be kept on leash when walked. They also like to dig. If they get a lot of daily exercise and play time, Cesky terriers are fine with apartment living and make great playmates for kids. They should be brushed once a week, bathed regularly and seen by a groomer every couple of months to have their beards, eyebrows and skirts trimmed.
What’s the best dog food for Cesky Terriers?
A diet of fresh food for your Cesky Terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness — along with lots of daily exercise, regular vet care, and regular grooming.
Why fresh is best for your Cesky Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Cesky 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
Cesky 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 Cesky Terrier.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Cesky 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 Cesky 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 Cesky 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.
