The benefits of fresh food on your pup’s poop

Fresh dog food is key to optimal gut health thanks to it’s high moisture content, which helps to keep your pup hydrated and prevent constipation.

Soluble fibres promote the growth of good bacteria in the gut and also assist in absorbing water, which helps with the formation of your pup’s stools. Meanwhile, the insoluble fibres help to increase stool bulk and stimulate movement within the gastrointestinal tract, which helps constipated pups. A low carbohydrate diet also means smaller, more manageable poops.

Healthy fibre sources that promote good poop texture, include:

Ancient grains
Purple sweet potato
Butternut squash

These drool-worthy ingredients can be found across our recipe range, which includes beef, chicken, kangaroo, lamb and turkey.

What should your pup’s poop look like

When it comes to your pup’s poop, it’s good to be fussy and more like Goldilocks – not too soft and not too hard, but just right.  

Between 2 and 3 is ideal. You want it soft enough that it slides right on out, but not too soft that it leaves behind residue and is too squishy to pick up.

So, which is your pup’s poop?

Chowing down to a greener future

Green in name and nature, we work hard to reduce our carbon footprint across our entire supply chain.

We support Aussie farmers and always source our veggies from the Ugly Bunch – that’s right, we use the produce that has been deemed too ugly for supermarket shelves to help avoid waste.

We are installing solar panels on the roof of our Sydney kitchen to generate our own green energy, and we’re also following in the footsteps of How We Roll Co. by significantly reducing our consumption of single-use plastic. We are proud to be doing our bit to help our planet whilst also fuelling pups with the food they need to live their healthiest, happiest lives.

Lyka: made for good poos

All of Lyka’s recipes are minimally-processed and jam-packed with fresh, digestible gut-friendly, human-grade ingredients that will not only have your dog drooling, but have them looking and feeling their best, and getting their poop-game on point.
