Ruby is a rescue dog. We adopted her when she was six or seven years old. She was brought to Chicago’s Animal Care and Control after being found living in horrible conditions with many other dogs. It is clear she has had multiple litters of puppies and like most mama dogs, probably gave away everything she had to her babies.
She has some chronic health and autoimmune issues including Vasculitis in both ears. Providing her with a nutritionally dense, natural diet has always been a priority for us (to make up for the neglect in her past). We have tried different foods, but until recently hadn’t found one that addressed ALL her issues. But we finally found the perfect food for Ruby – The Farmer’s Dog! Ruby started on The Farmer’s Dog in mid-June and the results have been pretty remarkable. Before we get to her results, here’s what you need to know about The Farmer’s Dog.

The Farmer’s Dog – Ruby’s Results
I will go into more detail in my next post, but here’s a quick overview of Ruby’s remarkable results on The Farmer’s Dog subscription-based dog food.
1. Weight loss. Ruby has always had trouble with portion control. It’s a rescue dog thing – must eat everything in case there’s no more. The Farmer’s Dog pre-portioned, pre-packaged meal plan is super easy to follow. Ruby is now sporting her new slim and trim summer body.
2. Increased energy. Quite simply, Ruby’s energy level has tripled. She genuinely seems to feel better, which results in longer walks and more playtime.
3. More confident. Because Ruby feels better, she’s also much more confident. She is more willing to explore new places and even interact with other dogs. She’s always been a bit nervous with other dogs, but now surprises me by confidently greeting (and sometimes playing) with other dogs we meet on walks.
4. Reduced allergy and autoimmune symptoms. Her skin is less itchy and red overall and there’s been a huge improvement in her ear vasculitis. The affected area is about half the size it was a month ago. It’s pretty crazy.
Ruby has been fortunate to try several different foods through the blog. While she’s liked ALL of them (she’s not picky when it comes to food), The Farmer’s Dog is the first one we have decided to keep her on permanently. It’s made that much of a difference for her! Tune in next week for a more in depth look at her results!
