Fresh Food for Corgis
The lively, long-backed corgi originated as a herding dog. There are two official AKC-recognized corgi breeds: the Pembroke Welsh corgi and the Cardigan Welsh corgi (of the two, Cardigans are the ones with rounder ears). The energetic, friendly, happy-looking breeds both make great family pets. A corgi will thrive in a home where they have a job to do and plenty of attention.
A healthy diet of fresh dog food for your corgi is the best way to support their health and happiness — along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and a herd that sticks together.
What’s the best dog food for corgis?
A diet of fresh dog food for your corgi contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your Corgis
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Corgis’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
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your corgi’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.
Corgis 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 corgi.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your corgi'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!
