There are several potential benefits to feeding your dog gently processed food, which refers to food that has been minimally processed to preserve nutrients and maintain the integrity of the ingredients. Some potential benefits include:
Nutrient preservation: Gently processed food is less likely to have nutrients destroyed during processing, which means that your dog may be able to absorb more of the nutrients from the food.
Better digestion: Gently processed food is more similar to whole foods, which can be easier for dogs to digest. This can lead to fewer digestive issues and a healthier gastrointestinal tract.
Improved flavor: Many dogs prefer the taste of gently processed food because it is closer to the natural flavors of the ingredients. This can make it easier to get your dog to eat the food, especially if they are picky eaters.
Fewer additives: Gently processed food is often made with fewer additives, such as preservatives, artificial flavors, and colors. At Furry Green, we DO NOT USE any additives or preservatives in our food! This can be beneficial for dogs with sensitivities or allergies to these types of ingredients.
It's important to note that not all gently processed foods are created equal, and it's important to choose a high-quality product that is formulated to meet your dog's nutritional needs. It's always a good idea to consult with your veterinarian or a board-certified veterinary nutritionist to determine the best diet for your individual dog.
