Fresh Food for Pekingese

Once the favored dogs of Chinese royals, the Pekingese seems, perhaps unsurprisingly, designed for pampered life. A bit shy, almost aloof, with new people, Pekingese are warm and affectionate once they open up, and they’re certainly more comfortable sitting in a loved one’s lap than chasing a ball around.

These royal companions are immediately recognizable thanks to their flat face, stocky build, and signature lion’s mane. And because of their build, they’re not meant for long days at the dog park or intense physical activity. In fact, their exercise needs are on the lower end, but their intelligent, willful nature means prospective owners should be ready to devote time to consistent training.

A diet of fresh dog food for your Pekingese is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with plenty of love and attention.

Why fresh is best for your Pekingese

meat and veggie

Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Pekingese’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.

Protect joints 

Pekingese 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 Pekingese.

 

Dial up dental health (and fresh breath!)

For dogs like Pekingese, who may be prone to dental disease, don’t look to a dried pellet to clean teeth. Kibble is an ultra-processed food—it sticks to teeth, contributing to plaque, and it can contain substances that actually fuel inflammation in the tissues of the body, including the mouth. Eating for dental health means eating for overall health. A fresh, whole-food diet promotes a healthier immune system, which helps ward off dental infections—and it doesn’t stick to teeth.

Promote better digestion (and poops)

A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Pekingese'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!

Maintain a healthy weight 

It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Pekingese'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.
