COVID-19

 

Letter from our Founder:

Dear Joy Family,

Our primary goal is always to keep our Joy Family happy, healthy and safe. It is out of an abundance of caution that we have decided to decrease our food production to ensure our staff, and families are safe until further notice. Because of this, we will be making the following changes:

  • All NEW customer orders will be shipped within 2-3 weeks of purchase. We will do our best to fulfill on time and will let you know if you should expect any delays.
  • All EXISTING customer orders will continue to be fulfilled on schedule pending any new recommendations.

If any of the above changes due to further CDC and WHO recommendations and restrictions, we will alert our community immediately and will do our best to help provide helpful alternatives and information.

Lastly, over the coming days we will share ways that we as a community can continue to come together from afar. Now more than ever it is critical that we all continue to support each other and share ways to get through this. As always, if you have any questions or concerns we are here to help. Feel free to email us at info@getjoyfood.com and we will do our best to help.

Tom Arrix
Founder + CEO, Joy Food Company

 

Tips for Keeping your Dogs Safe!

In a pinch and need some extra food for your pup?

Here’s a list of some approved food for dogs. 

Avoid feeding your dog anything that has been seasoned or is high in salt as this may cause irritation.

When putting together a “meal” for your dog, ensure you are including foods from all food groups just as you would for yourself and the rest of your family.

Vegetables:

  • Carrots: High in fiber and beta-carotene, which produces vitamin A

  • Broccoli: High in fiber and vitamin C and low in fat

  • Cauliflower: High in fiber as well as vitamin K + c.

  • Peas: rich in protein and high in fiber

  • Cucumber: A great low calorie snack. Packed with vitamins K, C, and B1, as well as potassium, copper, magnesium, and biotin.

  • Celery: Packed with vitamins A, B, and C, also help to clean dog’s teeth!

  • Green beans: High fiber low calorie snack packed with vitamins!

 Fruit: 

  • Blueberries: superfood rich in antioxidants

  • Apples: source of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber for your dog.

  • Banana: In moderation, bananas are a great low-calorie treat for dogs. They’re high in potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber, and copper.

  • Pears: high in copper, vitamins C and K, and fiber

 Protein: Primary source of calories + fat

  • Turkey
  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Salmon
  • Pork

 Grain:

  • Rice: easily digestible complex carbohydrate that fuels providing calcium, iron, and multiple B vitamins and soothing the digestive system
