Fresh Food Diet

Amid a growing focus on pet health and nutrition, the trend towards fresh pet food diets has seen a significant surge, buoyed by a burgeoning body of research underscoring its myriad benefits. A comprehensive study undertaken by Singapore Management University (SMU) in collaboration with independent research institutions has cast a spotlight on the substantial impact such diets can have on the long-term health of pets.

This heightened interest in pet wellbeing comes in the wake of a notable surge in pet ownership during the COVID-19 pandemic. Reports from the International Trade Administration (ITA) indicate an impressive 30% increase in dog ownership, a trend that has brought with it an increased scrutiny on the health and welfare of these beloved companions.

The SMU study marked a pivotal shift in the preferences of pet owners, moving from traditional kibble-based diets to fresher, more nutritious pet food alternatives. While kibble continues to hold sway in the market, a growing segment of pet owners are now turning towards freshly cooked diets. This transition is primarily driven by the discernible superiority in the nutritional value and quality of fresh food over its heavily processed counterparts.

However, the transition to fresh pet food diets is not without its challenges. A significant barrier is the perceived costliness of these diets. Many pet owners consider fresh pet food prohibitively expensive. However, when the long-term financial implications are taken into account – particularly the potential savings on veterinary bills – the perspective begins to shift. Fresh diets have demonstrated a reduction in the likelihood of chronic illnesses and conditions in pets, conditions that can otherwise lead to high veterinary costs.

Further bolstering the case for fresh pet diets are the findings from Purdue University and the University of Helsinki. These studies have revealed the profound health benefits of incorporating fresh food into pets’ diets, including a dramatic reduction in cancer cell growth and a decreased likelihood of obesity and degenerative diseases. Such diets can potentially extend the lifespan of pets by up to three years, offering a compelling argument for their adoption.

Singapore’s PetCubes has emerged as a pioneer in this field. Through a combination of research-backed nutrition and collaborations with veterinary experts, PetCubes has not only developed a range of premium-quality fresh pet food but also championed a more informed and holistic approach to pet nutrition.

As more pet owners become aware of these benefits, the adoption of fresh pet food diets is likely to continue its upward trajectory. The shift towards such diets represents a proactive approach to ensuring the long-term health and well-being of our beloved pets, firmly positioning PetCubes at the vanguard of this transformation in pet nutrition.
