Next, follow the guidelines below:

  • Convenient hashmarks on the side help determine the serving size for each meal
  • Carefully cut through the packaging and roll to cut slices for your pet
  • Discard the packaging around the cut slices
  • Cut slices into 1 inch chunks and serve in pet’s bowl

Since Freshpet is gently cooked without any chemical preservatives, it must be sealed or covered and stored in the fridge.

Freshpet Slice and Serve Rolls: Freshpet rolls can be stored in the fridge in a variety of ways:

  • Wrap the open end of the roll in plastic wrap
  • Cap the end of the roll to protect from oxygenation
  • Place either the whole roll or cut up slices into a plastic bag
  • Using a standard measuring cup, pour the morsels into the measuring cup to reach the calculated food amount for your pet, then serve

Freshpet Meals:

  • Freshpet meals come with a convenient seal along the top of the bag. Just close the seal and store in the fridge after meal time

We are thrilled that you’re considering switching your pet to fresh food. Freshpet is more readily digested than kibble, but it’s still important to transition slowly so it’s gentle on your pet’s tummy.

Start by feeding both Freshpet and your pet’s current food, and increase the amount of Freshpet every few days, while decreasing your pet’s current food. Then enjoy the change in your pet’s appetite at feeding time, and the lasting benefits you’ll notice from our nutritionally balanced meals.
