Freshpet Dog Food Review

Freshpet is based in New Jersey and was founded in 2006, with the mission to revolutionize the way dogs eat by making fresh, refrigerated food, rather than preservative-filled shelf-stable food. They choose the highest quality, human grade ingredients and gently cook them to produce healthy, balanced foods. This is roughly the closest you'll get to feeding your dog a home cooked diet, but without the hassle or the stress of making sure you're providing the proper nutrition. According to their website, their philosophy is that “If our families eat healthier, fresher foods, then why shouldn't our dogs and cats? That’s the idea behind Freshpet. Packed with vitamins and proteins, our meals offer fresh meats, poultry, and vegetables farmed locally. The Freshpet Kitchens then thoughtfully prepares these natural ingredients and everyday essentials. We cook in small batches at lower temperatures then immediately refrigerate the meals to preserve key nutrients. That way, your pet gets the best. We love making a difference for dogs and cats – and that difference always begins with the best ingredients. With Freshpet, you’ll feel good about what you feed your furry family.”

A variety of different lines fall under the Freshpet umbrella. The Vital line is specially designed to be protein-rich (with all food containing at least 80% protein) and contains products such as the Deli Fresh Chicken, Vegetable & Rice and Turkey, Vegetable & Rice formulas, as well as having some grain-free options, ideal for dogs with food intolerances or sensitive stomachs. If your dog doesn't have such high protein requirements, there's always the Freshpet Select line, with options such as the Homestyle Lamb, Vegetable & Barley recipe. These foods contain healthy whole grains, like barley and rice, but never wheat or corn, which are common allergens, or any nasty by-products.

You can be sure that your pet is getting all the good nutrition he needs, as all vital vitamins and minerals are added into the foods. All foods claim to meet or exceed the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages. This brand is a good choice for anyone who believes in feeding their dogs as well as they would any other member of their family, and avoiding all unnatural ingredients.
