Fresh Start Success Stories

Fresh Start

Helped my kitten Dexter get his playful side back!

Posted Sunday June 22, 2014 by Krissy709

I have a wonderful little kitten his name is Dexter. The first few weeks of being home with us he was not all that playful, we tried so many toys thinking that was the problem. I messaged the previous caretaker and asked about his medical history, toys, and food. When she told me that they fed him caned food only, I knew that was the problem. I went to the grocery store, every pet food that was there the first ingredient was by-product. When I got to the end of the aisle I noticed pet food in a fridge, wondering why. I took out Freshpet food and read what their ingredients are; I found the first ingredient was real meat! I love how they have fresh soft food. I bought every kind they had and went home and gave it to Dexter. A week later I notice that he became more playful and now that he is growing up I start to feed him the Freshpet Select Roasted Meals and he gets right happy when he hears the bag making noise. Dexter and I could not be happier, thank you.

Freshpet all the way everyday!

Posted Monday July 7, 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!

My 3 finicky chihuahuas still love it!

Posted Monday June 16, 2014 by Suzi

My name is Suzi, I have been working for veterinarian for 29 years. I have 3 extremely finicky chihuahuas. They were all rescues from our local shelter. It's hard when you don't know a pets history, especially when it comes to their diet. I purchased your dog food a year ago to try and the rest is history!! My dogs still love it. They always gobble it down!!! I recommend it to all my clients with pets that won't eat regular dog food. Every person I recommend your product to raves about it and thanks me for the recommendation. My dogs’ coats are soft and shiny and their eyes don't have staining anymore. I LOVE YOUR DOG FOOD!!!!

We would love to hear about

    For many pet parents, finding a pet food you feel good about feeding can be hard. Between all the ingredients listed and conflicting arguments on which are best, it can be confusing. But one thing I can assure you is that fresh meats make all the difference.     High meat content is important for your dog’s health, but it’s not just about…
