Whole Food’s for Dogs – Buddy’s Fresh Food™

Having looked long and hard for the best, safe, whole food options to recommend for our client’s pets, we are very excited to become Guelph’s exclusive distributor of Buddy’s Fresh Food™.  In selecting the best whole food options for our patients we focused on three main criteria:

1. Safety – is the product free of hazardous             pathogens and contaminants

2. Nutritionally Balanced – has the product been properly balanced for optimal nutrition

3. Superior, fresh, wholesome ingredients, palatability and digestibility

Buddy’s Kitchen™ located in Aurora Ontario, maintains the highest quality control and chooses ingredients from local suppliers having created a process that allows pet owners to safely and conveniently feed fresh cooked food without the mess of having to prepare it at home and with the confidence that the food is scientifically complete and balanced.   These diets have been formulated by board certified animal nutritionist, Dr. Gary Pusillo.

Buddy’s Fresh Food™ is 70% meat , however it is not a raw diet.  All meats are hand-butchered and then gently cooked to the minimum temperature recommended by Health Canada for human consumption.  Independent lab testing on each batch must indicate ‘negative’ for E-Coli and Salmonella before being released for sale.  As a result, handling Buddy’s Fresh Food is safe and convenient for the whole family and storage is mess free.

Buddy’s Fresh Food™ is sold frozen and when ready to be fed, can be thawed in a refrigerator or quickly microwaved. Patties are individually wrapped in 4.5oz / 128 gram patties for easy and convenient storage, handling and measuring. You can actually see, smell and touch the fresh ingredients.  In the center of the patty is a proprietary core in the form of Buddy’s ‘heart’. The ‘heart’ adds additional pre and probiotics and other science based nutrition to support immunity & gut health.  Low glycemic ingredients support healthy weight maintenance and with no grains, no corn, no soy, no wheat and no meat meals.

Buddy’s Fresh Food can be fed everyday as a complete diet OR fed occasionally as a topper (instead of canned food) mixed into your dog’s regular food .  Four options are currently available –( Beef, Chicken, Salmon or Lamb & Pork) with each diet combined with other whole food ingredients such as Peas, Fava Beans, Pinto Beans, Pumpkin ad Apple Pomace.  Also included is a propriety blend of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics that were formulated specifically for optimal health and longevity.  This mixture is added only after the meat has been cooked and cooled.  As a result, none of the fragile nutrition is processed-out of the food as can occur with conventional pet foods.

Stay tuned for more “whole food” options soon to be offered at Guelph Animal Hospital for both dogs and cats.
