Why buy cold pressed dog food?

Our cold pressed dog food is a healthy alternative to a raw food diet for canines.

You, a family member, or your pet may have health issues that make cold pressed dog food the better choice. Your canine might simply prefer dry food, or perhaps you don’t have the storage available to refrigerate or freeze our raw dog food.

Enter Hug’s delicious cold pressed range…

The cold pressing method naturally locks in nutritional value and flavour, making for tasty meals that are easy to digest. Standard dry pet food contains high levels of cheap cereals, and is produced at high temperatures that damage essential nutrients. This results in less wholesome food that is difficult for your pooch to digest, potentially causing issues such as nausea, bloating or flatulence.

Our gentle cold pressed dog food is produced at low temperatures, and only puts to work top-notch, natural ingredients that support long-term canine health – no artificial preservatives in sight.

Introducing our natural, sustainable ingredients

Proper protein  – you’ll find nutritious goodies such as lamb, chicken, and salmon in our recipes – high-quality protein that delivers the right nutrients to your pooch.

We’re all about science-led support for sensitive dogs, which is why we use clever ingredients such as chicken peptides, lamb digest, and salmon hydrolysate. Naturally broken down by enzymes, they become unrecognisable peptides, aiding easier digestion.

Nourishing fats – our tasty recipes include powerhouses such as krill, lamb lard, salmon oil, and rapeseed oil. They’re an excellent source of fat-soluble vitamins, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids – essential for optimal brain development and health.

Rice porridge and oat porridge – by far the best, most suitable carbohydrate for dogs – and how cold pressed food holds its structure.

Green-lipped mussel – a natural supplement that’s excellent for joint health.

Prebiotics – yucca, chicory, rosemary are all fantastic prebiotics. They play a vital role in building a healthy microbiome – ideal for canines with tum trouble, food intolerances, or itchy skin.

Free range eggshell – eggshell powder is a natural source of calcium carbonate, which is wonderful for bone health. Eggshell membrane naturally delivers glycosaminoglycans and proteins, critical for robust joint health and connective tissues.

Apple pomace – aids the breakdown of food in the large intestine, making for a happier microbiome.

Beet pulp – great for the digestive system, it also enables our cold pressed food to keep its form. Win-win.

Pumpkin – helps form solid stools and maintain a healthy digestive system.

Seaweed – a natural source of essential nutrients. Rich in minerals, straight from the sea.

Botanicals- we’ve selected an array of incredible botanical ingredients for our cold pressed recipes.

Your canine will benefit from delights such as sage, lavender, chamomile, nettle, spirulina, marshmallow root, green tea, and aloe vera. Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, their soothing superpowers are widely known.
