Secaucus, NJ (August 2013) –
Freshpet, the only company making fresh, refrigerated dog and cat food nationwide, is teaming up with TV and radio personality, pet expert, and 12+ year practicing veterinarian Dr. Katy Nelson. As a Certified Veterinary Columnist for the largest radio station in the country, Dr. Katy is a long time credible promoter of health and wellness for pets.
With National Pet Obesity Month approaching in October, Dr. Katy will be joining forces with Freshpet to educate pet parents about the importance of feeding fresh food and getting regular exercise to help keep our pets happy and healthy. Dr. Katy recommends feeding our pets real food made from simple, all natural ingredients; and avoid foods that contain common allergens like corn and wheat and overly-processed ingredients like chicken meal (a dry, rendered product).
Freshpet meets all her criteria and more. All Freshpet foods are made in their very own Freshpet Kitchens in Bethlehem, PA using fresh, locally sourced ingredients farmed right here in the U.S.A. Freshpet food never contains chemical preservatives commonly found in the pet food aisle today (BHA, propylene glycol). In fact, the only preservative they use is the refrigerator.
“Freshpet is my go-to food for my two dogs because of the high-quality meats and veggies used to make their nutritious meals. When you read the label, the ingredients are familiar and sound like the ones you’d find on your own grocery list – chicken, peas, carrots, and brown rice. I’m excited to join Freshpet in spreading the word that eating fresh, less processed food can really make a difference in the quality of your pet’s life,” says Dr. Katy Nelson.
To demonstrate how important fresh food is to both people and pets, Freshpet is challenging Dr. Katy and her family to live without their refrigerator for seven days. To find out what happens when you take away her fridge visit freshpet.com
. Freshpet will also be kicking off a consumer contest in mid-September where one lucky winner will receive their very own Freshpet fridge and a year’s supply of Freshpet food.
