As some of you may know, we recently started working with the Farmer’s Dog and here is why..…On The Farmer’s Dog website, they state the following..
“You shouldn’t be the only one eating healthy. Like you, we love our pets and care about their health. That’s why we created The Farmer’s Dog — a service that delivers balanced, freshly made pet food with simple recipes, guided by science and driven by love.”
That statement aligns with 5Strands service and mission.. “Our mission is to empower families with a voice about their health care and that of their pets. 5Strands number one frequently asked question from pet parents is “what food do you recommend”. Throughout our entire existence we chose to keep our name separate from recommending any pet food company.
The pet food industry has so much negativity surrounding it due to the low grade quality food being mass produced for our pets to consume. Our 5Strands Pet Intolerance Test has helped determine all of the harmful preservatives & ingredients placed in a majority of the kibble & canned pet foods on the market today. Parents looking to alleviate their pets discomfort are forced to follow a raw food elimination diet. As a company, we found out that it was rather difficult to stay consistent with meal prepping and spending a reasonable dollar amount on our pets diet. Then we caught word of The Farmer’s Dog while speaking on the phone with a customer.
Here is Melissa’s personal story and experience with The Farmer’s Dog…
Before putting Lily on Farmer’s Dog she was throwing up about once to twice a day. I found out that she was throwing up because she was intolerant to several items in her dog food. I would have never known if I didn’t get her intolerances tested! I tried following a raw food diet but Lily seemed to not like any of the food I was making.
In September, I was going over a dog’s test results with a customer and she mentioned The Farmer’s Dog. She put me in contact with one of the employees and it has been a match made in heaven ever since!
The first thing I noticed about The Farmer’s Dog once I checked out their website was that they provided at home delivery of human grade dog food (Yes.. I did nibble on the food and tried it myself). The food is made in a kitchen and only has a few ingredients! They have three simple recipes that still provides Lily with all the necessary nutrition she needs. When Lily got her first shipment in the mail, she started going crazy before I even opened the box! Lily loves it so much that she basically swallows the food whole. My dog Lily has been on Farmer’s Dog since the end of October. Since then Lily, has not thrown up! I have the capability to rotate which recipe is delivered each month to make sure Lily does not build up an intolerance to a single recipe. I have finally found a food that is convenient and extremely healthy for my best friend to live a happier life!
