  • I couldn’t be happier

    Jun 29, 2015 by Robyn

    I have an Aussie that’s 2 years old, i show in agility,that I couldn’t get weight on her. I was going threw petsmart desperately trying to find something that would help her hold weight and I found this product. I had heard wonderful things about raw food from other agility competitors and honestly wasn’t sure I believed all of it but I thought I might as well try it as nothing was working as she was getting more kibble then my male who is almost 2xs her size. within a couple weeks of just supplementing this to her kibble she not only is gaining weight but has blown her coat and its coming back better then it ever has been.

  • Finally!

    Jun 29, 2015 by Johnny Lee

    I rescued a 2 year old female GSD who was extremely underweight. I tried everything from dry food with grain and without… I even added wet canned food to the dry food and eventually she stopped eating that too. I figured she wouldn’t starve herself so I’d put her food every morning and night for five days and she wouldn’t even eat a single piece. I finally had to start trying raw diet foods because she was starving herself and this brand takes the cake. Her excitement over this food is insane. She was so picky, taking 10 minutes or more to eat her food. Now she eats all of it in less than 2 minutes! She even continues to lick the bowl after it is all gone. It pained me so bad to see her lose so much weight and starve herself. To see her so excited about food and get herself up to a healthy weight has really made me so happy. Whats even better is that her coat looks absolutely gorgeous! She is so much more active and seems to be so much happier and less lethargic! My biggest problem is the price so I only will give it 4 of 5 stars for that reason. She’s a large dog and it costs me around $64 dollars a week to feed her properly!

  • Thank You!

    Jun 29, 2015 by Katie

    My 12 year old dalmatian went on a food strike. I was to the point of hand feeding her kibble just to keep her going. Bought some of this, and it was the first time I had seen her eat out of her bowl willingly in so long. It’s only been a few days but already she’s acting better, she’s happier, and she’s letting me know when it’s meal time again! She even grabbed her tennis ball wanting to play.

  • My dog loves it

    Jun 29, 2015 by Puppylover686

    Before freshpet, my dog was very unhappy with any dog food. We tried wet food and eight different dog kibble brands but she didn’t eat a bite so we were stuck feeding her human food. When we tried freshpet, she loved it right away and enjoys it even more than people food! We have only tried one recipe but I am sure that we will continue feeding her this food and that we will soon see her health improving even more.
    Thank you freshpet for making this amazing food for my dog :)

  • Fresh Pet saved my dog’s life

    Jun 29, 2015 by Cocco

    I have a pug who will be 4 years old in July. She has been a very sick dog her whole life. She would vomit everyday, she has major hair loss, had rashes and pimples all over her skin,her skin was turning black, and so on. I have tried so many different dog foods with her to try and help her with her problems thinking that she had a food allergy. After having an assessment done on her for food and environmental triggers as well as probable health concerns, I have found out that she has a fungus that has taken over her digestive track! All the foods I have ever tried was only feeding the fungus. My last resort was to try Freshpet since it was grain free and low carbohydrate. Basicly this food would starve the fungus. She has been eating this for 1 month now and what a big difference in her!!! She no longer throws up, she has more energy, she wants to play again, and she has lost the yeasty body odor !!!!!! Thank you so much Freshpet for saving my dogs life. She will be a Freshpet dog the rest of her life.
    Thank you so much !!

  • Finally My Picky Eater Actually Enjoys Eating

    May 25, 2015 by Harrisob

    I’ve got two chihuahuas aged 10 and 11. One super picky eater (one kibble at a time with many rejects along the way) and one chow hound where anything goes and usually within seconds not minutes. I decided to try Vital after a long list of other tries. Wow. I never would’ve expected my picky eater to finish her meal before the chow hound. The only thing I found that was needed was to cut the chunks in half for Miss Picky. She’s 4 lbs and a delicate eater. Now she polishes off dinner in less than half the time spent on any other offering. My speedy chow hound on the other hand (5 lbs) takes longer to eat than usual. I leave the chunks as is which seems to make the difference. I’ve never had this enthusiasm for dinner before unless I was feeding them chicken or steak pieces from my own dinner. It’s only been a few weeks but feeding time is a pleasure for everyone now.

  • My Bella Bounced Back

    Apr 13, 2015 by Monica

    I have a Maltipoo who is VERY finicky. I’ve tried all kinds of hard food, even tried mixing it with her soft food and she would just eat around the hard and pick at the soft. I became very worried because she would basically sleep ALL day and was very sluggish at times. I went to Petco and spoke with an associate there who recommended this product. As soon as got home and opened this bag of glory, I couldn’t get it in her bowl good enough before she started chowing down. Finally she’s completely satisfied and so am I. Thank you Freshpet. I’m a customer for life. :-)

  • my last resort

    Mar 10, 2015 by sophia

    my 12 yr old dog was diagnosed with diabetes, I knew this is serious in adults, fortunately humans have health insurance, but insulin for a dog is well over $250-300/per vial; picked up Freshpet, grain free/natural food, and within a week I saw a dramatic change in my dog’s health… I’m thankful for every day with her, and so glad I found this product.

  • Yummy for the tummy…

    Jan 16, 2015 by Trecee

    I first purchased Vital as training treats for my Finnish Spitz. She loved it so much, I decided to try her on it for meal time. My pup had terrible gas with her other food brand. Since eating Vital, she hasn’t passed any gas. With her other brand, she would eat a little, play a little. I’d feel guilty taking her food away unfinished. With Vital, she eats it all in one sitting. Great food! Although expensive, its worth it. I love to see how happy this food makes my pup.

  • Picky Eater

    Jan 12, 2015 by Laura

    I have a Chihuahua Jack Russel Mix she is 4 years old. We could never get her to eat other than just pick at her food. I tried can foods, dry foods, I tried mixing different foods with kibble and nothing worked for more than a few days, that was until I found Freshpet Vital. Now she runs to her dish eats and like a horse. She has put on weight she is no longer underweight and her coat is shiny and soft as before it was course. She has been eating this for 3 + months. I am hoping she will continue to love it.

  • Happy Owner, Happy Poodle

    Dec 01, 2014 by Scarlet

    I have a red tiny toy poodle, she is about a year and 2 months old and since I bought her she has been the most finicky eater I have ever seen! She was eating Royal Canine for the first 7 months I had her and then suddenly she wouldn’t eat anything, even healthy fresh eggs or chicken I would make at home. Finally, after countless vet visits, appetite increasing shots, trying every dog food possible, nothing was working so I was walking through the pet store and noticed a refrigerator with food called Freshpet… you could say I won the lottery with this one! She now will eat and enjoy her food and it has a 5 star rating and so far for the past three months she hasn’t stopped yet! Crossing my fingers! Thank you Freshpet!

  • Taste like candy….

    Jul 13, 2014 by JackandJIll

    When ever I go to the refrigerator and my dogs see that I am opening the meat draw they come running as soon as they hear me opening this bag. I call the bag their candy. They go crazy for it. I can sit there and feed them one piece at a time as a treat or fill up their bowls and watch them eat every piece and then lick the bowls.

    Apr 27, 2014 by Chip

    Our dog (a 4 year old Field Spaniel) can be a picky eater. Not with this food! He starts dancing around the kitchen as soon as he sees me take it out of our refridgerator. While cutting it up-he visibly starts salivating…once he has his bowl, it is gone in a flash…never anything left in the bowl!
