Chi Dog 2021: Balanced & Therapeutic Dog Food

We chat with Dr. Susan Bohrer from Chi Dog to find out why “Food is the First Medicine” for any healthy dog.

What was your inspiration for launching Chi Dog?

I’ve been a practicing veterinarian for 16 years. I also trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbs, and food therapy), which I’ve practiced for the last 10 years.  

I noticed tremendous improvements in my patients when I used food therapy principles and created home cooking recipes for my clients. But home cooking is not always a long-term option, so I created Chi Dog to bring these meals to your dog’s door.

Why should doggie parents switch to your brand?

We believe “Food is the First Medicine.” We’ve crafted real food, high-meat diets to support and prevent imbalances in the body.

Tell us about the ingredients used in your fresh dog food.

We use real food ingredients: USDA-regulated, human-grade ground meat and eggs, real vegetables, and small amounts of carbohydrates. Our veterinary nutritionist balances the diets by adding vitamins and minerals so as to be complete diets for adult dogs and growing puppies as per AAFCO recommendations.

What’s the shelf-life of your five recipes?

Our meals are shipped frozen and can stay in your freezer for months. Once you defrost a meal, we recommend feeding it to your dog within seven days.

Can the five recipes be used interchangeably?

The ability to rotate your diet is a sign of – and promotes – a healthy GI microbiome. We encourage rotation. But, if a dog is weak, has a sensitive stomach, or you’re concerned about food allergies, we may recommend feeding one diet for a few months until your dog is stronger, then try to rotate.

We can recommend and accommodate combination diets. Just email us when you order and request a combination of two or more diets.  

How do your products compare to other fresh dog food suppliers?

We use only ground meat in our meals, no organ meat, as organ meat is very rich. If a veterinarian wants their patient to have organ meat, we recommend clients add organ meat that they can confirm is good quality.  

Overall, our meals are very high meat diets. We think high meat and low carbohydrate meals are best for dogs.

What do veterinarians think about this kind of diet?

Holistic and integrative veterinarians love our food! The majority of our clients are referred to Chi Dog by their holistic veterinarian. We have affiliate veterinarians who feed Chi Dog to their dogs and refer their patients to us because we treat food as medicine, just like they treat their patients with acupuncture and herbs.
