When em’bark’ing upon a new diet regime for your four-legged friend, it is always important to do your research to find the right food.
This can be quite daunting at the best of times, not to mention when it is maybe a relatively new concept like cold-pressed dog food.
Ok, you’ve heard great things about it and you’re super excited to learn more. But where do you start? Which advice do you take or trust?
Here at Rùn HQ, we are chock full to the brim of useful, practical, and trusted advice to ensure you feel confident enough to make an informed decision.
We have taken the hottest, top five questions people are asking about cold-pressed dog food and answered them!
1. Is cold-pressed food better for dogs?
In our opinion, yes. The health benefits your dog will gain from a cold-pressed diet really answer this question. Packed full of natural goodness and nutrients, easier to digest and super tasty too.
2. What IS cold-pressed dog food?
Cold pressing food involves manufacturing it at a lower temperature, so the natural vitamins, minerals, and flavours remain locked in to the dog food. This results in healthier, tastier food that your dog will love and is easier to digest.
3. Does cold-pressed food contain grain?
Some do and some don’t. A grain-free diet can be extra gentle on fuzzy tummies, making food (and all that natural cold pressed goodness) easier to digest. However, your furry friend can benefit from grain in their food to aid with slow energy release, which is especially useful if they’re on the go.
4. Can you mix cold-pressed dog food with raw food?
Absolutely! They break down in your dog's stomach at the same rate, reducing the risk of your dog's stomach twisting.
5. How do you store cold-pressed dog food?
You can store your cold-pressed dog food in the original paper bag, or a container of your choice, so long as it is kept in a cool dry place. Don’t use an airtight container if your storage area is prone to temperature changes, as this can cause condensation.
