Fresh Food for Weimaraners
Weimaraners are hunting dogs who are smart and trainable, and make loving pets for humans who can meet their considerable needs. Every dog requires exercise, but Weimaraners demand serious workouts to be happy. Adults will gladly run with their humans and engage in vigorous play sessions, and may become destructive and miserable if cooped up. Because Weimaraners are sensitive and become very attached to their people, training should include efforts to ward off separation anxiety. The breed tends to have a high prey drive, so think twice before putting one in a home with a cat.
A diet of fresh dog food for your Weimaraner is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with regular vet care, human-canine bonding time, and the opportunity to run around to their heart’s content.
What’s the best dog food for Weimaraners?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Weimaraners 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 Weimaraners
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Weimaraners’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
Know what’s in the bowl
For Weimaraners 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.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Weimaraner'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!
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Weimaraner'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.
Weimaraners 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 Weimaraners.
