Why fresh is best for your Labrador Retrievers

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Labrador Retrievers’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.

Protect joints 

Like many large-breed dogs, Labrador retrievers can be 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.

Maintain a healthy weight 

It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small—and Labrador retrievers are especially vulnerable to. obesity. Being even a little overweight can increase your Lab’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.

Promote better digestion (and poops)

A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Lab’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!
