  • She loves it!

    We have had Izzy since she was 8 weeks old and and she has always been a finicky eater. She is totally healthy, just not that “into” food. On top of her pickiness we are super picky about what we feed her which limits our choices even more. We tried Freshpet and cannot believe the difference! She eats all of her food as soon as you put it in front of her and she doesn’t walk away until she has licked the bowl clean! This is a complete 180ᄚ from her usual attitude at dinner time. An added bonus is that we can buy Freshpet at our grocery store for less than what we used to pay for specialty food from the pet store that she wouldn’t eat anyway. Thank you so much Freshpet!

  • Picky pup finally eats again!

    Posted 07/15/2014 by bmbrush413

    After starting medication for her heart problems, my Sheltie began having trouble eating. She was on a homemade diet for almost a year, but it wasn’t balanced enough for her. We tried several commercial foods, and even a specially formulated homemade diet from a nutritionist. She’d eat each one for about a day or two, then stop eating. Finally we tried Vital and she has eaten every bit of it for the last three weeks, and keeps going back to her bowl to make sure she’s gotten every last speck of food! Thank you for making something that has gotten my very fussy eater to eat again!!

  • Freshpet Improved My Dogs’ Health!

    Posted 07/08/2014 by Denise324

    My 2 pugs would get upset stomachs on different dog food brands, and with all the dog food recalls we knew a fresh, reputable, all AMerican made pet food was the only way. We saw several positive reviews and commercials about freshpet a few years ago, and decided to give Freshpet Vital Dog Food formula a shot and boy did it improve our pugs’ health. They went from being chubby, sleep, with upset stomachs to being full of life, jolly, healthier in physique and overall health within a couple of weeks of eating their new Freshpet diet. Freshpet is the only diet we consider to be up to par with our standards with our dogs’ health and we will never put our dogs’ lives at stake with a poorly prepared dog food. Freshpet all the way everyday! #Freshstart

  • Old dog renewed

    Posted 07/08/2014 by Reese

    I have a 15 1/2 year old dachshund going thru kidney failure. Back in April I thought I was losing her and she wouldn’t eat a thing. I decided to try Vital and she ate it and a week later had perked up. I’ve continued to feed her the Vital and she is doing well on it still a few months later. I know it won’t cure her but she’s eating twice a day and it’s the only thing she will eat.
    Thank you Fresh Pet for renewing an old dog!

  • Love this food

    Posted 06/16/2014 by buster

    My picky pup Dottie loves this food so much. She eats it in five seconds flat. It’s amazing to see. She practically knocks me over every time I take it out of the fridge. I’m happy to give her something that is so healthy for her, and that she lovs. Plus, she looks so healthy – always get compliments on her shiny coat.

  • The Beagle Loves It!

    Beagles aren’t known to be picky eaters… we know this for sure… but we’ve noticed a significant increase in energy in our 12 year old beagle over the last few weeks!

  • Food allergies

    Posted 12/10/2013 by jjethel511

    Our puggle lulu has been suffering from food allergies for the last few years. She was having serious intestinal, paw and some skin inflammation. She would wine, pace and just want to go eat grass. You could hear her tummy noises and her gas was constant and toxic. We tried multiple high end foods. I started her on this a few weeks ago and all but her paws are better. Although Id love to find some coupons Im so happy we have found something to relieve her discomfort.

  • Picky dog literally cries for this food!

    Posted 11/04/2013 by NancyBB

    Connor is a 6 lb. picky Maltese who’s been known to go on hunger strikes. Previous attempts to tempt him with doggie “junk food” — tasty wet foods that aren’t well made — backfire because they upset his digestion. Plus, he only likes those for a couple of days, tops. We were introduced to this food about a month ago. First of all, no upset digestion. Secondly, he stands at the bowl and cries for this food. Unbelievable. It is an added benefit that this isn’t doggie “junk food” at all!

  • Cannot say enough good

    Posted 10/10/2013 by Carlettej1

    I cannot say enough good things about this food! Waylon and Willie were a little bit picky before, but now they eat every bite without hesitation. They are feisty and happily fed now without wasting a bite! We had tried premium foods, wet, dry, raw food, cooked chicken……nothing worked. One day they would eat it, the next not. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you!!!

  • Picky Dogs

    Posted 09/27/2013 by Becky52

    I have 2 very picky small dogs. I’ve had to cook chicken for them to add to some really high cost canned food.

    I bought some Fresh Pet slice and serve chicken formula yesterday, put it in their dishes and they cleaned their plate. They never clean their plate. I always have to through away some food the next day.

    I will be buying this again and again. I just wish it were less expensive. My local grocery is the only one that carries it and it is never on sale. But that will not stop me, they LOVE IT, so I love it.
