  • Thank You, Freshpet for your amazing food. My dog loves all of your products and we are so thankful we found you!

    Nov 19, 2014 by BeccaR

    If I could give this food more than 5 stars I would. Let me start by saying I have an 11 year old male Shitzu, Georgie. G was having some skin issues, similar to doggie eczema. He had hair loss and some lesions/dry skin areas. This food was recommended to me by another customer when I was at Petsmart. I brought it home and my dog went BANANAS for it! It is on the lower end of the protein scale (which is good for an older dog) and it has a high moisture content. I told my Vet all about my dogs new diet and when he saw the ingredients and vitamins etc he said “WOW, THIS LOOKS FANTASTIC!” Georgie was never the kind of dog to sit in the kitchen at 5pm and wait for dinner but, now he is. My 11 year old little man is like a puppy again. His energy is 5x what it was prior to this food. His hair is thick, and long and his skin is clear of lesions or any type of issue. This food has biotin in it and other vitamins that I think have been extremely beneficial to his health and wellbeing. I also highly recommend the Freshpet treats. According to Georgie, the turkey bacon is amazing! :)

  • SUCCESS!!

    Oct 02, 2014 by Heather

    Our Belgian Shepard is allergic to everything- from food to enviornmental allergies. I have spent the last couple years finding what I could give him to eat when he just decided to stop eating all together- even treats! I started giving him the Vital Beef and Bison and he loves it! With no grains, eggs or poultry, he is much happier and healthier than ever. He has more energy at 5 than he did at 3! Even our vet has indicated how beautiful he looks!

  • BEEF AND BISON

    Jul 28, 2014 by sassy

    Found my yorkie at the pound. He has a pellet in his shoulder that was removed while having him neutered. He was always throwing up and very finicky. He had bladder stones and I always cooked his chicken and potatoes. 3 years free of this and him more finicky about his food than ever, I tried fresh pet beef and bison (he was burned out on chicken) Before we had to beg him to eat. Now he can not wait for his dinner and will eat every bite. Thank you Fresh Pet. So glad we found this good. Going to start our Border Collie who is aging and has bowel issues. I will keep you posted.

  • FreshPet Vital stopped the struggle

    Jul 16, 2014 by Jackie2

    My paw, Roo, is a 9yr old Jack Russell Terrier. Roo has a tough go around …. allergies to dust & grass since she was a puppy, fear based aggression, and now … diabetes. It was a devastating blow to us but we accepted the reality. Trying to find food for Roo to eat while diabetic was rough. We tried every dry kibble and every wet food made for diabetics out there but Roo refused them all. She was lost about 7 pounds, her fur all fell out and she wasn’t doing well. And then, we tried her on Fresh Pet Vital. Saving grace! Roo ate the entire bowl in 5 minutes. We were so excited! We’re now using ONLY Fresh Pet Vital for Roo. She has stopped losing weight, has started to enjoy her meals completely and her fur is growing back. We have our happy little Jackie back and we are on our way to getting her health back under control. Thank you Fresh Pet for stopping the struggle of food with my girl, Roo.

  • Happy Berner Mom

    Jun 25, 2014 by BernerMom

    My 3 Bernese Mountain Dogs (two rescues and one rescued me after my beloved Bramm died of cancer) have recently been switched to Vital at the recommend of the owner of our marvelous specialty pet store, “Wags and Wiskers” in Gaylord MI. I had been feeding another brand which is now combining chicken in their food. Since the regs have relaxed the labeling on imported chicken (China?) and it can say USA when it is only packaged here, I wouldn’t touch it with a 10 foot pole! My Berner babes are healthy so that is not so much an issue. They LOVE their new Vital choices and my Therapy Dog Team partner, who tends to be a bit finicky, is DELIGHTED. No half eaten meals for her any longer!!

  • Glad to have discovered Freshpet products

    Jun 12, 2014 by Horsemamma

    Our 13 year old westie had become a very finicky eater and often refused to eat at all, often vomiting yellow bile. He also had lost a lot of weight from not eating. The vet had no answers. A few weeks ago I heard an ad on the radio about fresh food for dogs, and decided to give the fresh food a try, since I was at my wit’s end as to what to feed this dog that he would eat. What a change in him! He now cleans his bowl and seems happier and healthier than he has been. His eyes are brighter, he is more alert, his coat is softer and he seems to have more energy. Before discovering your wonderful products, we were seriously thinking we’d have to put him down very soon. Thank you so very much for your wonderful Freshpet products. Please don’t ever stop producing them!

  • Puppy’s favorite!

    Mar 31, 2014 by CharlieCoton

    My 9 month old puppy Charlie was a very picky eater and after a trip to the vet I was told he is significantly under weight. I started giving him Vital and he inhales it.

  • Truffle’s favorite

    Jan 30, 2014 by Jylsy1

    Truffle has skin issues. Still not sure what it’s about, but she seemed better and lost her itches. She is 15 1/2 years old, and getting very pickey. Truffle had a growth on her eye ( like a sty) that simply disappeared one day! I think it’s the food, but do not know for sure. She is happy, healthy, and very playful now. She scratches the fridge door when she wants her Fresh Pet. I think I should start eating her Vital, it seems that healthy!

  • Freshpet Vital saved our 18 year old Shih Tzu!

    Dec 10, 2013 by Debra08

    In the past year my husband’s 18 year old Shih Tzu, Daytona, has suffered two attacks of old dog vestibular disease. He was not eating well and was losing weight. Daytona wanted to eat, but all his normal favorite meals just didn’t entice him. A friend with a local Aussie rescue group recommended Freshpet. Talk about wake up the taste buds! I am happy to report Daytona is gaining weight, is more active and even wakes me up every morning to make his breakfast. Thank you Freshpet for contributing to the continued health of our baby.

    Nov 01, 2013 by Angela

  • Great to add to dry food

    Sep 18, 2013 by PCrais

    My 2 and a half year old Doberman loves the Vital Bison & Beef dog food. I chop up a slice into small bite sized pieces and add it to her dry food. Since I’ve changed her diet, her coat is starting to shine and is much softer than on a previous brand of dog food. I just wished our local Pets Mart carried it but I will drive to get it. I’m glad you can freeze it so that I don’t have to make as many trips to the store.

  • Must be Doggie Heaven

    Aug 19, 2013 by Sugar

    I have two elderly doggies – a German Shorthaired Pointer (12) & a Boston Terrier (11). The Boston has struggled with irritable bowel syndrome & is picky about food. Tried the Bison & Beef crumbled on their limited ingredient kibble – no more picky meals & no more flatulence! The GSP looks at me after a meal with a look that says “this must be what they feed doggies in heaven!” I would recommend this food for any dog that is having GI issues or is a picky eater.

    Jul 02, 2013 by Peanutsmom

    All of My dogs and rescues love fresh pet but I have sweet little Peanut who can not have chicken or turkey or duck and almost every dog food has some type in it meal fat or meat. She loves this with the Bison and is getting the other things she needs as a dog that she would not get if I was feeding her burger and rice. We swear by freshpet for all of our pets and rescues!

  • Freshpet was the only thing Paddy would eat!

    May 03, 2013 by MLK88

    My 10 year old Berner girl Paddy, became very sick after a dog show. Getting her to eat anything was a real challenge, she wouldn’t even eat my raw mix that she usually loves. In a mad search to find something she would eat, I found Freshpet (Vital – Beef & Bison to be exact). The ingredient list looked fantastic and Bison has always been one of her favorites, so I thought I’d give a try. Well, she LOVED it and it was the only thing she would eat for two solid weeks! She’s slowly getting back to normal but still insists on her Beef & Bison every morning. Thank you Freshpet, your products will always be in my fridge now!

    Recently discovered Vital, brought it home and my 2 Vizslas
    could hardly contain themselves waiting for me to get it in their bowls. Just cutting off the portions you can see all the great ingredients. I am very picky when it comes to feeding my two beautiful girls and I am very happy with the results from this great fresh food.

This recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.

Depending on the age, activity level, and condition of your dog, the feeding guidelines will need to be adjusted. The normal daily feeding amount for a healthy adult dog:

Dog’s Weight Amount to Feed Per Day (in Pounds)
5-10 lbs 1/4 – 3/8
11-20 lbs 3/8 – 1/2
21-40 lbs 1/2 – 1
41-60 lbs 1 – 1 1/4
61-100 lbs 1 1/4 – 1 2/3
*Add 1/4 LB for each 25 LBS beyond 100 LBS

For pregnant or lactating females, offer two to three times the normal amount of food. For puppies, feed up to twice the normal adult requirement from four to fourteen months of age in two to three feedings. The above quantities can be fed as one meal or divided into two meals based on your dog’s preference. When switching foods, gradually increase the new food and decrease the previous food to help make a smooth transition.

Use within 7 days of opening.
