What is Cold Pressed Dog Food?

The good news

Let’s begin with the good news about cold pressed dog food.

This won’t take long.

There isn’t any good news.

See. Told you it wouldn’t take long!

The bad news

Okay, now we’ve dealt with that, here’s the bad news about cold pressed dog food. It’s not natural, it’s not nice and it begs the question. Why on earth would you do it in the first place?

The process

The first stage of cold pressing involves taking what might well be perfectly good and perfectly wholesome ingredients and SHREDDING THEM INTO AN UNRECOGNISABLE PULP!

The second stage of cold pressing involves putting that UNRECOGNISABLE PULP through a hydraulic press in order to WRING EVERY LAST DROP OF MOISTURE OUT OF IT!

And what’s left is what you feed your dog. Makes you feel hungry, doesn’t it!

“How would you like your fillet steak this evening, sir?

“Oh, I’ll have mine shredded to an unrecognisable pulp and then put through a hydraulic press to remove all the moisture, please. And I’ll have a large jug of water because I get the feeling I’m going to need it!”

I wonder how many of us would look forward to a meal like that every evening?

You wouldn’t. So why on earth would you expect your dog to?

The questions

All this begs a number of questions of cold pressing proponents:

1. Why?
2. How can it come even close to providing a naturally balanced diet given that the ingredients have been SHREDDED INTO AN UNRECOGNISABLE PULP. Before having EVERY LAST DROP OF MOISTURE WRUNG OUT OF THEM??
3. If you really want to preserve the natural integrity of the food you produce, why wouldn’t you leave it as close to its natural state as possible. At the same time as making it as bioavailable as possible. By lightly cooking it for example!
