All Natural Ingredients in Freshpet Cat and Dog Food
Healthy, all natural ingredients
Fresh Animal Proteins
Freshpet makes all of its healthy pet foods from high-quality animal proteins like fresh chicken, beef, lamb, and salmon. These highly digestible protein sources provide essential amino acids, fatty acids, and specific minerals for muscle development, organ function, and energy. In addition, many of our formulas contain chicken liver and eggs. Eggs are a complete protein source providing all the essential amino acids contributing to growth and muscle development. Chicken Liver is a source of Vitamins A, D and virtually all of the B Vitamins.
Vitamin-Rich Fruits & Vegetables
To complement our meat based recipes, we add vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables to our natural dog and cat food. Pomegranates are high in antioxidants, containing polyphenols, such as tannins and anthocyanins, which help protect the body against the damaging effects of free radicals. Peas are an excellent source of Vitamin E, which promotes a strong immune system. Carrots are high in Beta-Carotene for healthy vision.
High Fiber Grains
Freshpet adds small amounts of easily digestible grains, like brown rice, oats, or barley to some of our healthy pet food recipes. These soluble and insoluble fibers promote digestive health. Freshpet never uses wheat, corn, or wheat gluten. These carbohydrate sources are typically used as inexpensive substitutes for meat protein and these ingredients cause some of the most common dog allergies. Freshpet also offers grain-free recipes.
100% Complete & Balanced
Our well-balanced formulas exceed AAFCO’s (American Association of Feed Control Officials) guidelines for pet nutrition. We add 18 essential vitamins and minerals to ensure your pet always gets the best natural pet food.
Emerging Pet Nutrition
Some of our recipes, such as our Deli Fresh Slice & Serve Rolls, contain unique ingredients that ensure your dog gets the best in pet nutrition. Sea kelp provides a valuable source of essential vitamins and minerals, including iodine, which supports thyroid function. Flaxseed oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, for a healthy skin and a shiny coat. Prebiotics, such as inulin, to aid in the absorption of nutrients, and green tea extract to provide antioxidant support.
