Fresh Food for Irish Terriers
Originally hailing from the Emerald Isle, the Irish terrier is a high-energy breed ideally suited to a home with room to move and attentive occupants. Frequent exercise and quality time with their humans are non-negotiable. Regular training will help refocus these terriers’ stubborn streak and early socialization will build rock-solid family bonds. Owners often enjoy exercising with these instinctive athletes, who are game walkers and skillful ball catchers. A weekly brush and occasional hand-stripping of the wiry outer coat will keep in order those iconic Irish tresses.
What’s the best dog food for Irish terriers?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Irish terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and plenty of attention.
Why fresh is best for your Irish Terriers
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Irish Terriers’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.Feed Fresh Today
Irish terriers 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 Irish terrier.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Irish terrier'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!
Know what’s in the bowl
For Irish terriers with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Irish terrier'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.
