Fresh Food for Xoloitzcuintlin

The Xoloitzcuintli (pronounced “show-low-eetz-queent-ly”) is an ancient breed. The hairless version of this canine (Xolos can also be coated), also known as the Mexican hairless dog, is low-allergen and a great choice for people with allergies (though no dog is truly hypoallergenic). While not big barkers, they are alert and wary of strangers by nature, so early, ongoing socialization is key. The calm Xolo  will happily laze around the house with their humans. But they do need moderate exercise, and it is best to walk them during cooler hours because they are sensitive to sun. In fact, if they are going to be outdoors for longer periods, Xoloitzcuintli should wear sunscreen (or a sweater during the winter).

Why fresh is best for your Xoloitzcuintlin

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Xoloitzcuintlin’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 

Xoloitzcuintlin 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 Xoloitzcuintli.

Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)

For dogs like Xoloitzcuintlin, 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 Xoloitzcuintli’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 Xoloitzcuintli’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.
