Fresh Food for Tibetan Terriers
Originally from their namesake mountainous country, Tibetan terriers once kept Buddhist monks company and were considered a good luck symbol. Today the breed’s heritage echoes in their fondness for hanging with humans, toasty two-layer fur coat, and flat wide paws perfect for walking in snow. Name aside, these non-sporting dogs are not true terriers; their small-to-medium size earned them the faux designation. That compact frame makes Tibetan terriers suitable for urban dwellings, and the healthy breed can live past 15 years. The dog’s flowing tresses do require upkeep, but owners maintain Tibetan terriers are not high-maintenance divas. Rain or shine, the sporty pup beneath the fur enjoys frequent walks and many wouldn’t object to a steeper hike in the hills.
A diet of fresh dog food for your Tibetan terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and bonding over regular brushing.
What’s the best dog food for Tibetan terriers?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Tibetan terrier 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 Tibetan Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Tibetan 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
Tibetan 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 Tibetan terrier.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Tibetan 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 Tibetan 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 Tibetan 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.
