Fresh Food for Manchester Terriers
These tenacious hunters pursued small game like rabbits and rats—and their history includes an unfortunate chapter in which they were often used in “rat-bating,” a cruel and dangerous pastime that is now illegal. These days, the affectionate, bright dogs make great household companions. They’re playful and love to run, think, and follow their noses, so they’ll need a considerable daily workout—but as long as they have enough activity and enrichment throughout the day, they will also be content to hang out with you at home. They’re eager to please, and will enjoy training if you make it fun for them. Be aware that Manchester terriers may be sensitive to anesthesia.
A diet of fresh dog food for your Manchester terrier is the best way to support their health and happiness — along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and a loving family.
What’s the best dog food for Manchester terriers?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Manchester terrier contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your Manchester Terriers

Manchester 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.

Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Manchester 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.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Manchester 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!
Provide nutrients that can reduce the odds of cancer
There’s no sure way to eliminate the risk of cancer, but there are things you can do to give your Manchester terrier the best chance at more healthy years: Keep them lean, avoid heavily processed foods that may contain preservatives and carcinogens, and feed them a fresh diet that can help reduce inflammation.
