Holistic dog food is about nutritional balance and supporting overall well being. Ingredients are selected based of their unique purposes and as every dog has different nutritional needs there are a variety of products available to choose from.
When poor quality food is consumed the animals overall nutrition will be poor and they may start to develop health issue. A lot of budget branded dry food contains fillers which do not benefit your dog or give them the nutrition that they need.
There are many great benefits of feeding your dog holistic food, below is a list of benefits:
Better Coat Health
A shiny coat is often a sign of good health (unless their breed dictates otherwise). Fish oil is one ingredient often used in holistic food which aids with overall coat health and is often found in many holistic dog foods thanks to its great benefits. Owners have found that their dogs often shed less when they change to a holistic diet. Fewer fillers and healthy supplements aids foods who suffer from hair loss or excessive shedding.
Improved Skin Health
The oils found in holistic food help to keep the skin hydrated and prevent drying. Switching dogs who are suffering from dry or flaking skin to a holistic diet may start to see improvements, with the symptoms eventually disappearing in most cases. Fish oil and vitamin E aid in overall skin health and are often a great ingredient used in holistic dog food.
Sharpened Eye Health
Eye health is extremely important to all animals, especially as dogs age. Balanced foods, such as holistic food, are beneficial for overall eye health with more antioxidant-rich ingredients compared to other dry food brands. Some breeds commonly have issues with eyesight, which is why we think the best dog food for these breeds is holistic. The nutrient packed food will help minimise concerns around the eyes, and although may not prevent hereditary issues, it can help ease the issue.
Improved Heart Health
Holistic food tends to include more leaner proteins, paying particular attention to the quality of the protein. A dog that eats leaner ingredients will tend to have a stronger and healthier heart.
Better Intestinal Health
Holistic foods contain more probiotics compared to average dry food which makes them ideal for improving intestinal health. The types of ingredients used are selected to help healthy bacteria flourish in your dog's intestines which aids in healthier digestion. Dogs that are prone to diarrhoea and upset tummies from other dry food brands quite often experience better intestinal health after switching the the probiotic-rich natural holistic food.
Fewer Bowel Movements
Dogs on a holistic diet, particularly grain-free food, often see changes in bowel moments. A lot of the time dogs will have fewer or smaller bowel movements and this is due to the vast amount of fillers found in lower quality food which causes more frequent movements. Switching to a grain-free holistic food can help reduce bowel movements, harden stool and frequently aids with chronic anal gland issues.
Yes, many owners decide to feed their dogs one choice in the morning and the other in the evening. You can purchase separate meal fillers from the Robbie’s range to add to the Luath’s if your dog is fussy or needs a little extra.
We do not currently have a range designed specifically for senior dogs. However, we still recommend feeding senior dogs the Robbie’s or Luath’s range and simply cutting back the amount of food. As the dog becomes less active they will not require the same intake as a dog twice as active.
Always measure the amount of food before adding the hot water. It may not look like a lot of food when you first add it to the bowl but once the water is added it will begin to look like a delicious home cooked meal.
Put the required amount of Robbie’s food into your bowl and add enough hot water to cover the food then set aside to cool. If you feel there is not enough water, simply add more. Stir before feeding to make sure there are no hot spots. We don’t want no burnt tongues!
More often than not, fussy eaters cause be a result of dogs that are being fed scraps and excessive amounts of treats in between meals. Dogs are opportunistic hunters by nature, and as they became domesticated over time it was easy to scavenge around humans. Most likely the dog is hoping to get something more exciting than what is in their bowl. The first thing you should do is stop feeding the dog any scraps and limit the number of treats they receive. Dogs have different nutritional needs than we do, so human food isn’t necessarily balanced for them.
Put your dog’s food out for 10-30 minutes. If it isn’t eaten, take it away. When it’s time for your dog’s next meal, set out the food again and repeat, whether it is eaten or not. Your dog may start begging for extra treats but don’t give in. Although may feel they are telling us they are starving they aren’t, if your dog is hungry they will eat.
Start by combining your new food with the old food and then gradually increasing the amount of new food until your dogs bowl is only the new food. Try mixing a small amount of warm water when switching from wet to dry food, this will help soften the dry food a little to make the change easier.
Any concerns/issues such as vomiting, diarrhoea, sluggishness or loss of weight seek advice from your vet.
More than 50% of the pet population is overweight, it is important that we are aware of our pet’s weight as well as providing exercise and a well balanced diet. Some signs to look out for that your pet may be overweight are:
Waddles when walking
Can’t feel their ribs anymore
Short of breath
Your pet’s weight is important and can help prevent many diseases and disorders associated with obesity. If you notice any of these warning signs or are concerned for your pets health always consult your vet.
There is no overall best food to feed a puppy, especially with puppies being prone to have sensitive stomachs. As long as the food is nutritious it will be sufficient to help your puppy grow. Wet or soft food is often more palatable and easier to eat while they still have their soft teeth. Robbie's Cuisine needs to be soaked in hot water before serving, this makes it an ideal choice for puppies. We recommend starting your puppy on a holistic diet to allow your pup to grow up fit and strong with a healthy appetite.
Puppies need to fed small amounts throughout the day, this is because puppies stomachs are much smaller and will get full quicker. Overeating can cause upset tummies, diarrhoea and create bad eating habits that could carry on into adulthood.
Hot water is traditionally added to any puppy food to soften it for soft teeth as well as aiding digestion, especially during the weaning process. This process normally takes place between 6-8 weeks, when solid foods are gradually introduced. If your puppy has just finished weaning we highly recommend you soften their food before gradually increasing to dry food. Any changes to the puppies diet should be done gradually.
The water also increases the aroma of the food making it more appealing for your puppy. We highly recommend Robbie's Cuisine Puppy range especially for puppies with sensitive tummies and those puppies who don't have much interest in food. When hot water is added to Robbie's there is a delicious aroma and has dogs dancing waiting for their food.
How often you should feed your puppy is dependant on the individual puppies needs. Smaller breeds will need to fed smaller amounts more regularly than a larger breeds. Puppies are fed between 4-6 times per day, with most owners gradually decreasing this to 2 per day as they reach adulthood.
There is no best time to feed your puppy, it is recommended to feed first thing in the morning until night time, ensuring you don't feed too close to bed time. This allows them time to digest the food and go to the toilet before going to sleep. Always follow the recommended daily food serving on your chosen food and spread this throughout the day.
