That’s right! Just switching out 25% of your pet’s current diet with healthier options makes a HUGE difference in their overall health and wellness. And today, we’re going to break down all the reasons you want to do just that.
We’ll also go into the easiest and most cost-effective ways you can give your beloved furbabies the best nutrition.

This method really is the best cheaper dog food you can get while giving your pets all the benefits of a whole food diet.
So let’s do this!
The Whole Food Truth Campaign
In recent years, there has been a shift in the way we feed our pets. People are moving away from kibble-based, highly processed diets and toward whole food nutrition. When we improve the quality of the nutrition we feed our pets, we decrease disease and lengthen lifespans.
As a vet, I love this progressive movement toward switching dog food and cat food with more nutritious options. As we continue to see the pet food industry shift from lower quality processed diets to higher quality whole food diets, it is becoming more convenient and easier to feed our pets better healthier foods.
However, higher quality ingredients can sometimes mean higher costs, which may not be ideal for some pet parents.
But there’s a simple way you can feed your pet better NOW and give them the benefits of a whole food diet without breaking the bank. All pets deserve the gift of good health, even on a budget.
So where do you start with feeding a higher quality diet?
Higher quality, healthy food begins with whole food nutrition. Whole food nutrition is just as it reads – real food from its original source, unprocessed with no artificial additives, preservatives, or chemicals.
Green leafy vegetables or high-quality freeze-dried food in which the nutrients have not been destroyed in the cooking process are great examples.
What are ways to provide better nutrition on a budget?
I am answering this question more frequently as the shift in the pet food industry continues to move towards higher quality pet food diets.
Higher quality ingredients can cost more. And many pet parents are looking for ways to get the same health benefits within a smaller budget.
For example, a kibble-based diet that uses chicken byproducts, chicken flavoring, or corn meal as a protein are generally going to be less costly than a whole food nutrition diet that uses fresh, frozen, or freeze-dried whole chicken breast, salmon, and spinach.
Whole food nutrition may be cost prohibitive at times, especially with large breed dogs. So what can you do to provide all dogs with the highest quality diet?
I recommend switching out 25% of your pet’s current diet with whole food nutrition.
But how can substituting just 25% provide a healthier, longer life?
Many of the decisions I make to help benefit your pet’s health are based on science and data. Every day, I see more evidence-based data showing that whole food nutrition improves pets’ health and lengthens their lives.
Providing pets with whole food nutrition, with no artificial additives, preservatives, or chemicals, leads to greater health and wellness, fewer cases of obesity, decreased occurrences of diseases such as diabetes, and longer lifespans.
In fact, according to a Purdue University Study, simply switching your dog food with just 25% real food, like green leafy vegetables or a high quality freeze-dried food, may DECREASE the risk of cancer by up to 90%.
So how does substituting 25% whole food nutrition work?
- 75% Kibble + 25% Side By Side Freeze Dried Patties
- 75% Kibble + 25% *Home-Cooked Food + Side By Side Freeze Dried Patties
- 75% Kibble + *Home-Cooked Food (chicken breast, spinach, carrot, salmon)
*Always speak with your veterinarian regarding the home-cooked food you select for your pet. There are some foods that are toxic or not good for your pet. Your veterinarian is always the best resource for this information.

Our pets rely on us to make the right choices for them. Just like humans, good health starts on the inside. And food is only good if the body can absorb the nutrients. So let’s stop filling their bellies with highly processed food that contains artificial additives, preservatives, and chemicals.
