Fresh Food for Tibetan Spaniel
Tibetan spaniels hail from Tibet, where they perched on the walls of monasteries, serving as watchdogs—as well as companions—for monks. Even in homes, these dogs sit up on furniture so they have a good view of everything and will bark to alert you if a stranger comes to the door. These people-loving pups crave company and get along well with children. Standing 10 inches tall and weighing 9 to 15 pounds, Tibetan spaniels have a mane around their neck that makes them look like little lions. They shed, but their coat is easily cared for through regular brushing and combing. Long walks go a long way in keeping these playful pups happy.
What’s the best dog food for Tibetan spaniels?
A diet of fresh food for your Tibetan spaniel is the best way to support their health and happiness — along with daily walks, regular vet care, and a loving family to hang out with.
Why fresh is best for your Tibetan Spaniel
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Tibetan Spaniel’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
Tibetan spaniels 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 Tibetan spaniel.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Tibetan spaniel’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 Tibetan spaniels 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 Tibetan spaniel’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.
