Has anyone else here tried Freshpet Select? My Chinese Crested/Toy Poodle, Baxter LOVES it! He prefers the Chicken, Vegetable & Rice Recipe, but we're thinking about trying the Chunky Beef, Vegetable & Rice Recipe.

I have! I used it when I knew I needed to upgrade from kibble, but wasn't ready to go all the way to raw. Darcy loved it, but it made her drink a LOT more water, so I'm not sure it would be good long term. I think it's too high in sodium. I was going to use it when I went out of town recently, because she was going to stay at a kennel and I wasn't sure if they'd be okay with raw, but she wound up staying at my friends' place instead so it wasn't an issue.

we tried it and it was universially disliked by all three of mine. They especially hated the "veggie chunks". I could get them to eat the "meaty" part if I coated it in gravy but thet wouldn't touch those "veggie" pieces.

Yes, I used it before I switched over to raw. I would mix it with Jaeger's kibble because I couldn't get him to eat it plain. Go figure... I too noticed him drinking a lot more water on this but overall he liked it.

My original pack of dogs loved it (Gobie, minpin RIP, Lexi, bichon, RIP, and Darby, bichon, 12 years and counting!) but it's salty and they drank a lot.

Other than that they looked good, no skin issues, or poop issues. Have not tried it on my current crew other than Darby.

I bought it for my cat for awhile (the roasted meals in a bag). She loved it, but I was just worried about the sodium content so I haven't bought it for quite awhile now. I also bought a small bag of the roasted meals for dogs to top their kibble and they also loved it. Again, it was a short lived feeding regimen....for some reason, I just didn't feel all that comfortable using it.
