What Is Cold Pressed Dog Food?
We’re not going to lie to you - there are so many types of dog food out there it can be a daunting task trying to find the right food for your dog. We all want the best for our pets, after all. In an ideal world we want a dog food that is:
  • Great tasting
  • Great nutritionally
  • Great value for money

Wouldn’t it be great if there was one food that encompassed all these qualities?

Welcome to the world of cold pressed dog food….

What Does Cold Pressed Mean?

It’s as simple as it sounds. Cold pressing is a method where food is cooked without the use of high temperatures. The food cooked quickly and at a low temperature. But why?

The joy of cold pressed dog food is that this method preserves all the nutrients. So you can expect all the nutritional benefits of raw dog food whilst maintaining the convenience of dry dog food. Your dog can expect food that is a good nutritionally as it is tasty… and that's a lot! Everyone’s a winner.

Is Cold Pressed Dog Food Better?

Call us biased, but we’re big cold pressed dog food fans. Traditional dry dog foods tend to swell in the stomach when being digested as they absorb liquids in the stomach. This can cause bloating, discomfort, flatulence, or even make your dog vomit hours after.. However, cold pressed dog food breaks down gently making it easier to digest.

It’s actually quite similar to how we steam vegetables, as opposed to boiling them, to make a healthy dinner. Cold pressing means more nutrients are kept in during the process. Dry dog food is usually cooked by a technique called extrusion. Sure, this may be low cost so easy to mass-produce. But it's also low in nutritional value, and surely your dog deserves better (even if he did ruin your brand new carpet with a nasty little surprise last week….).

Heating up meat, fish and other proteins to high temperatures change the structure of the protein. Which is a fancy way of basically saying it makes it less nutritious and harder to digest. Grain free cold pressed dog food is extremely easy on your dog's stomach, leaving it comfortable after food.

Benefits Of Cold Pressed Dog Food

Time for the good stuff, literally!

Cooking using lower temperatures preserves heat-sensitive enzymes, fibres, nutrients and vitamins - and that's just the science bit.

The low heat does wonders to preserve the natural aromas and flavours creating a truly delicious flavour. Unfortunately, it’s made especially for your dog (it’s dog food after all) and we don't recommend it for human consumption.

Using low heat means that the free radicals that are produced when using high heat aren’t produced. This brings benefits such as:
  • Better metabolism
  • Healthy coat
  • Healthy skin
It also:

Strengthens immune system
Freshens breath

Sounds great, right? The best bit is, there’s no catch. We cut the crap, so you only get all the good stuff.

  4. Voila! That’s it. Now you can feed yourself with peace of mind your dog won't be giving you puppy dog eyes for some of your dinners.

How To Switch To Cold Pressed Dog Food

Turns out, you can teach an old dog new tricks, and it’s pretty simple….

Changing to gentle cold pressed dog food will require a transition phase where you will have to gradually wean your dog off its current feed on to cold pressed. Begin by mixing the food together with a 50/50 ratio, but gradually up the amount of itsdogfood.com’s cold pressed and lessen the old food.

Some dogs learn faster than others, so if your dog has loose stool at any time, reduce the amount for three days to give the stomach time to stabilise.

Store in a cold, dark environment and reseal once opened. It really is that simple!
