Why Brown Rice & Wild-Caught Salmon Are the Superfoods Your Dog Needs: Exploring GoodBowl™

Dedicated pet parents know that nutrition is one of the most important parts of caring for their dogs. But have you ever wondered what could make their diet even healthier? Two ingredients making big waves in the canine nutrition industry are brown rice and wild-caught salmon.

These foods aren’t just ordinary additions to your dog’s meals; they’re packed with benefits that help keep your pup happy, healthy and ready to play. Open Farm’s GoodBowl™ range brings these superfoods to your furry friend’s food bowl. Explore why these ingredients are just what your dog needs!

Benefits of Brown Rice in Dog Diets

Brown rice is a powerhouse dog food ingredient that provides essential nutrients that can boost your pet’s health. Packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals, this wholesome grain supports overall wellness.

Brown rice’s high fiber content is excellent for your dog’s digestive health. It helps regulate the digestive system, promoting regularity and preventing constipation. This means your pup can have smoother and more predictable bowel movements, which translates to fewer upset stomachs and easier potty training and elimination.

In addition to supporting the gut, brown rice recipes for dogs are a reliable source of sustained energy. The complex carbohydrates in brown rice deliver energy slowly, ensuring your dog remains lively and active throughout the day. This gradual energy release is perfect for maintaining stamina without the sudden highs and lows often caused by simpler sugars.

Benefits of Wild-Caught Salmon for Dogs

Wild-caught salmon is a fantastic choice for dogs, not just for its flavor but also for its impressive health benefits. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, salmon helps keep your dog’s skin healthy and their coat shiny.

These fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are also anti-inflammatory. This is great news for dogs with joint issues, and may help to ease pain and improve their mobility.

Salmon is a high-quality protein rich in essential amino acids, providing the foundation for muscle maintenance and growth. Unfortunately, dogs can’t produce half of the 22 amino acids they need on their own, so feeding your pet a diet high in salmon can support your pup’s overall health.

How to Introduce GoodBowl™ to Your Dog’s Diet

Switching your dog to a new food can be an exciting step toward a healthier diet, but it’s essential to do it gently to keep their tummy happy. If you have any concerns about changing their diet, consider scheduling a consultation with their veterinarian.

__To introduce your dog to GoodBowl™ products follow this guide. __ Start slowly. Begin the transition over 10 days. On days 1-3, mix 25% of the new Open Farm food with 75% of your dog’s current food. This gradual introduction helps their digestive system adjust without too much disruption.

Increase gradually. As your dog gets used to the new food, increase the amount. On days 4-6, feed them an even mix: 50% of the new food and 50% of their old food.

You’re almost there. By days 7-9, your dog should be almost ready to switch. Mix 75% new food with 25% of their old food.

Make the switch. On Day 10, you can safely serve 100% GoodBowl™Open Farm food.

During the transition to the new food, monitor your dog closely. Watch for symptoms of digestive discomfort such as increased gas, diarrhea or constipation. Additionally, observe any changes in their energy levels or the condition of their coat, which can signal how well they are adapting to the new diet.
