The Puppy Gang Fresh Foods Story
Puppy Gang Fresh Food was formed in Toronto to make it easy to feed your dogs healthy and nutritious foods. But this is not where the story starts. It starts in 2018 in Hong Kong where Kalinda, a Schnauzer was adopted by Marisa and saved from a shelter. Kalinda had been a breeder at a puppy mill and was overweight, sick and struggling to survive. She suffered from excessive weight gain and hair loss from an untreated thyroid problem. Due to malnutrition, she had to have all her teeth removed. She had a hernia and needed to have a mammary gland tumour removed. The veterinarian and shelter didn’t know if she would ever make a full recovery.
They recommended feeding Kalinda a variety of ‘premium brands’ of pet food, but she was lethargic, struggled with endurance and wasn’t losing weight. Upon significant research and education, we discovered the pet food industry was unregulated and many ‘reputable’ brands contained ingredients that over long periods of time may be harmful to dogs. After bringing Kalinda and her best friend Harley (Shiba Inu mix) to Canada, Puppy Gang Fresh Food was born. Working with a holistic veterinarian, Kalinda and Harley started eating home cooked meals involving a balanced and healthy diet.
Within a few months, the change in Kalinda was significant. From 11kg and struggling to walk Kalinda got down to 6.5 kg, was energetic and able to run. Kalinda is now joyful, happy and healthy. It all came down to her diet.
