Fresh Food for Wire Fox Terriers
Bred in late 18th century England to drive foxes out of their dens, wire fox terriers (aka Foxys) do best with active families who will make sure they can get all the exercise and training they need—and these tough, feisty dogs need a lot of both. High-energy Foxys are always up for a long walk—on leash because they have a high prey drive and will chase small animals—or a game of fetch. It’s best to keep an eye on even in a fenced-in yard because they are diggers and will try to escape. Low shedders, wire fox terriers have rough, wiry coats that need regular brushing so they don’t become matted.
What’s the best dog food for wire fox terriers?
A diet of fresh food for your Wire Fox Terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness — along with A LOT of daily exercise, regular vet care, and a loving family to play with.
Why fresh is best for your Wire Fox Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Wire Fox 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
Wire fox 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 Wire fox terrier.
Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)
For dogs like wire fox terriers, who may be prone to dental disease, don’t look to a dried pellet to clean teeth. Kibble is an ultra-processed food—it sticks to teeth, contributing to plaque, and it can contain substances that actually fuel inflammation in the tissues of the body, including the mouth. Eating for dental health means eating for overall health. A fresh, whole-food diet promotes a healthier immune system, which helps ward off dental infections—and it doesn’t stick to teeth.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your wire fox 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!
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your wire fox 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.
