Is Spring & Sprout Complete and Balanced?
Yes. This recipe has been developed and tested to meet all AAFCO nutritional requirements for adult dogs. Our veterinarian nutritionist has paid particular attention to the protein sources, specifically combining different types of plant proteins and cage-free eggs to complement each other’s nutrients and provide a complete and balanced meal for your pup.
Is this diet Vegan or Vegetarian? Why does it contain eggs?
Freshpet Spring & Sprout is a vegetarian, meat-free food. The main sources of protein and energy are from plants. Yet, the recipe is not vegan as it contains some protein from animal origin (cage-free eggs). Cage-free eggs are one of the most nutritionally complete foods in nature. They are also very palatable and highly digestible. The addition of egg ensures that your dog will have a highly nutritious (and delicious) diet while not eating any meat proteins.
Is there enough protein in Spring & Sprout for my dog?
Yes! We’ve carefully combined high-protein plants and cage-free eggs with nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables for a well-balanced food that has more protein per serving than traditional dry or wet dog food – the result is a planet-friendly food your dog can thrive on.
