Here’s why Oscar’s Farm is perfect for your new puppy!
On: December 05 2022
Christmas is coming and we know that Santa often surprises our loved ones with a new furry family member.
If you have been in Santa’s good books all year and you think this might be on the cards for you, it’s time to start considering what diet you’re going to feed your new puppy. The only problem is… it’s a minefield!
There’s so much noise out there when it comes to choosing which food is best for your precious new puppy. Do you feed them wet? raw? dry?
We’re here to make things a lot easier for you by combining the best parts of all 3 types of dog food into a new breed called FRESH PRESSED!
Fresh pressed uses whole natural ingredients that are gently cooked at low temperatures to retain all of the nutrients and then pressed into the crunchy food dogs love. Our food is nutritionally complete, great for sensitive tummies and contains zero nasty additives or artificials. All the nutrition of home cooked with the convenience of dry!
But why is our Fresh Pressed dry food the best choice for you and your growing pup?
Dental health benefits:
Dry food encourages dogs to chew their food, which aids in the prevention of tartar build-up and secondary periodontal diseases.
Dry food is more versatile for integrating into food puzzles and slow feeders that will be super important for your puppies cognitive development, stimulation and quality of life. See five fun ways to mix up our fresh pressed meals here.
Our Fresh Pressed food is nutritionally dense and full of natural probiotics, therefore it breaks down easily inside your dog’s tummy to give your pup the best gut health.
Compared to wet food, dry food is much easier to portion, has a longer shelf-life, doesn’t spoil when left out so it’s great for grazers and you don’t have to make space in your fridge or freezer.
Oscar’s Farm perfectly portions a monthly box based on your dog’s age, weight, breed, activity levels, ect. which is delivered straight to your door every month. This gives you peace of mind that your puppy will always have everything they need for the best start in life.
How does Oscar's Farm compare to 'Traditional' dry dog food?
Well, unfortunately most dry dog food is cooked with extreme heat aka "extruded". This method of "cooking" means all of the natural nutrients and flavours are removed. To accommodate this, the food is powered by meat meals, additives and nasty artificials.
This lack of nutritional substance leads to swelling and bloating inside your dog’s tummy. Dog owners are often oblivious to this due to crafty and confusing label tricks.
What do we mean when we say Fresh Pressed has the best of everything?
- Oscar’s Farm has similar nutritional value to a raw diet but without the risks. Many studies have shown that pets who eat a raw diet have high levels of potentially disease-causing bacteria in their stomachs, which is not what you want for your growing pup. A raw diet Is also very expensive to maintain compared to Fresh Pressed, which offers competitive pricing for the quality of ingredients used.
- Traditional wet food may look more meaty and palatable than dry food, however it’s mostly made up of parts of animals that aren't allowed to be sold for human consumption; things like residual meat, offal, connective tissues and, in some cases, bones 🤢 Wet food that doesn’t require refrigerating is also powered by nasty additives and preservatives. Frozen wet food on the other hand, contains better meat cuts however it causes eight times more emissions than dry dog food, giving the average dog the same carbon footprint as a human. Completely Crazy! Each meal is also individually packed in non-recyclable packaging. Think about 2 packs, every day for 365 days a year that go to landfill. Oscar’s Farm is committed to limiting our environmental impact by using one recyclable bag per month.
- Oscar’s Farm has all the convenience of traditional dry dog food however it differs substantially in terms of the cooking method and the quality of ingredients used.
So there you have it! We told you... Fresh pressed really is the best of all 3 worlds!!We hope this helps you on your journey to finding the best food option for your new pup this Christmas!
