  • No More Picky Pup!

    Sep 11, 2017 by IndiB

    Freshpet,
    During the first 1.5 years of my dog Jackson’s life, I went through 22 different types of dog food to find one that he actually enjoyed, and wouldn’t refuse to eat. It even became so worrisome that the vet considered various scans and testing to see if there was something internal supressing his appetite. The day I found your chicken/beef/salmon/egg recipe, I was at the end of my rope. Then…it happened! I put the food in Jackson’s bowl and he DEVOURED it! Initially I thought, “maybe he’s just really hungry today…this won’t last, it’s not possible!” Well, here we are almost 2 years later, and Jackson still runs to the bowl everytime the bag of food comes out of the fridge! Thank you for such an amazing product, and for putting an end to my “picky pup problem.”

  • Pregnant dog loves it

    Aug 09, 2017 by Barkboy

    I am a westie breeder, I show and breed the little monsters. My girl that was pregnant refused everything I put in front of her. I tried different kibble and wet, even cooked for her, nothing would she eat. I tried the grain free chicken, been and salmon and boom, cleaned up her bowl. Yea:) On dog food advisor it is highly recommended and a five star food. I love she has something she will eat and I love that it is a quality food that is good for her. Thank you Fresh Pet.

  • Helps Diabetic Dogs

    Jun 25, 2017 by PETS

    Two years ago I was devastated to learn that I had two diabetic dogs. I did everything my vet told me to do. I fed a prescription diet, tested and gave them insulin shots twice a day. In the last two years we have not been able to stabilize either my boy or his mother. I resigned myself to the fact I would never get either dog’s diabetes under control, that was until recently. My husband and I went out of town and my 14 year-old took a turn for the worst. Her blood sugar sky rocketed and she stopped eating. My friend who was taking care of my four Labradors decided to find a new food she would eat. She brought home Freahpet Vital. My old girl loved it. The best part this food began lowering her blood sugar. The last two weeks my old girls blood sugar has been more consistent and she has been getting stronger. Today we began giving this same food to my other diabetic dog and we are hoping for the same results. i will have to keep you posted.

  • The Pickiest Chihuahua

    May 15, 2017 by Miss Picky

    Hi Freshpet! I am sending a picture of Sable. Ever since Sable was a baby she had stomach issues-it seemed that every food made her sick after a few days. Perhaps because of this she was the pickiest eater ever! No matter what I gave her she would turn her little nose up and walk away. The vet put her on a special bland diet which took away the stomach issues but she hated it! Mealtimes were miserable. One day my friend Jason (dogfood whisperer)brought us Freshpet. And Sable loved it! Even better, there were no stomach issues. She gobbles it up. Her eyes sparkle and her fur is…well, like Sable! Thank you SO MUCH for making such a great dog food! Sable ❤️ Freshpet

  • Amazing!

    May 01, 2017 by Whitley

    I got my french bulldog in May 2016 and he has been through a lot of different brands of food. He had diarrhea off and on constantly since the day I picked him up. After a few months his vet prescribed him science diet z/d to hopefully get his stools under control. We only had little success. So one day we were getting to the end of a bag of the z/d and I decided to pick up some freshpet instead of buy another $90 bag of z/d. It was like an overnight miracle. His stools were normal for the first time in almost a year! We are truly grateful for freshpet and the great food they make!

    I have one finicky eater and one begger but they both have sensitive digestive systems. Since transitioning to Freshpet Vital both are quick to clean their bowls. I feel so much better feeding them fresh, all-natural food that supports their protein and nutrient requirements.

    Love love love this dog food!!! My very finicky Yorkie will eat nothing else, my Great Dane puppy who was having serious stomach issues and skin issues is doing great and my senior Mastiff now gobbles up his food. Thank you Fresh Pet for making feeding time so much easier.

  • Our “miracle” dog

    Sep 27, 2016 by Barb

    In April of 2014, our sweet 8 year old Doberman Hershey was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, a nasty and fatal cancer. He was bleeding internally and close to death, but we decided to go through with surgery. The surgery successfully removed the hemorrhaging tumor, but we were given a life expectancy of 18 -72 days. We were told that anymore than that would be a blessing. We did two things: first, we prayed like crazy and asked family and friends prayed for us also; second, we added Vital to Hershey’s diet. His favorites included one with salmon and with eggs. Everynight, I would ask him if he wanted to show me something, and he would run to the refrigerator where the Vital was kept. We just assumed this would be a short, sweet phase before he passed away. 18 months later…YES, 18 months later Hershey was still “showing me something” every night, running to the refrigerator for more Vital. Our vet referred to Hershey as a miracle dog! Not only did he live that long but it was a good 18 months of daily walks, laying in the sun, barking at the neighborhood cats, playing with the neighborhood dogs! After 18 months, he developed a second tumor which ruptured and within just a few hours we were saying our final goodbyes. So, I’m convinced our prayers brought us to Vital and gave us the time to develop peace and grace when it was time to put Hershey to sleep. I’ve read a few negative reviews on snobby-dog blogs, as if somehow these self-proclaimed experts would never give Vital to their dogs for some sobby reason. Look, Doberman owners tend to be pretty snobby ourselves, but I would recommend Vital to anyone, especially anyone with a sick dog. Thank you Vital for 18 more months!!

  • Miracle Food!

    Aug 16, 2016 by Allison

    After a month long struggle with a stomach infection my German Shepherd went from 76 pounds to 61. She was already a picky eater but had lost all interest in food after being sick. I tried almost every wet/refrigerated food out there before stumbling across the complete meals. I mix this food into her dry food and she gets so excited that she barks at me if I come near her food bowl. She cleans her entire bowl now. Riley is now back to a healthy weight and I owe it all to this incredible food!

  • Score!!!

    Aug 06, 2016 by Margaret

    I have an 11 y.o. Min poodle who has becoming more and more finicky about his food and eating. Sometimes he will sit by it for over 12 hrs. I would change flavor or brand and he would joyously eat it got one meal, but when served again – forget it. He then just had 21 teeth pulled and even though he was already getting wet food his level of disgust for all the high end food only increased. So I started cooking chicken and turkey, which he readily ate, but I knew this was not complete diet. I had always seen the refrigerator case at Pet Smart, but never checked it out. Well i did and boy am I glad. He loves the food, absolutely loves it. Gobbles it down. No staring or growling at it. I am so relieved.

  • Puppy with special needs

    Sep 23, 2015 by Cheryl

    I have a hand fed (tube fed) cleft palate pup that I needed to ween from formula. For sure required a food that would not crumble into tiny bits and get into his sinus. The pup was not doing well, with stomach issues and of course could not latch on to his mom. I had already tried, with success, vital raw foods for my adult dogs, and noticed your soft kibble like foods in the cold section at the pet store.

    The pup only weighed 7 oz at 5 wks old, he was gaining less than an ounce per week, and really needed to gain some weight. I cut up the soft kibbles so he could manage the size without chewing. He has been on this diet now for a week and thriving well. He is now 10 oz. I was concerned about constipation, and his stool is fine now on this diet. I also introduced the same food to the rest of the litter and they all love it and are doing well. As well I now feed this same recipe to the adult dogs, with no issues from switching foods.

    There was no other soft kibble at any of the stores in my area, not even a soft cat kibble (except for vital, which I would had tried) for my special pup.

    Thank you for making this healthy, nutritious, grain free, easy to feed dog food!

    My two shih tzu’s have multiple allergies like potatoes and peas, which are in most every dog food out there. This food is always fresh and the girls love it!! This food is easy to handle, unlike the raw food. Thank you for making this fresh and healthy food! I also like to support American products, and I was raised in Bethlehem, Pa!!!!!

  • He’s New to Freshpet, but Already Cleaning His Plate

    Dec 09, 2014 by Dog Nanny

    Charley (either a Maltese or a Malti-Poo) is the pickiest dog I’ve ever had. But he has now enthusiastically finished two meals a day for three days — I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
    I was throwing out so much previous dog food it felt sinful. I often board other small pets, and if this continues to work, I will refer other dog parents to this brand.

  • Sensitive skin problems

    Oct 31, 2014 by Teresa

    My dog Baby is older and developed food sensitivity problems. Regular dog food made her skin erupt in very itchy spots and caused hair loss. She also seemed to be having a lot of what seemed to be age related issues. Since I switched to Freshpet grain-free products she has improved dramatically. She can jump on the couch again! Her skin has also cleared completely. THANK YOU Freshpet.

    Aug 18, 2014 by Natalie Poteran

    Though I rely on reviews quite a bit, I am lax in writing them myself. I always say I’ll go back, but never do. This is my first. I am truly compelled to write my praises for this product. I have a 14 year old lab – who like many of your pets I am sure – is the love of our lives. He’s been on high quality food his entire life, but never fresh. We recently switched him to the Vital line. He has been eating the food, and treats, exclusively for about a month. It has literally changed his life! My husband and I joke that it’s like the movie Cocoon! He hasn’t had this much spunk and energy in years. His arthritis pain seems to have halved since he’s been eating the food. And he can’t gobble up the food fast enough — he LOVES it!! We’ve also noticed that his bowel movements are much more routine and healthy (for lack of better word). I cannot thank FreshPet enough for putting out such a high quality product. You’re making a difference in many lives, and extending them as well. Thank you. Thank you. I wish there was something more than 5 stars that I could give you as a rating.

  • Saved My German Shepherd’s Life!

    Jul 22, 2013 by Dogman

    When I got my dog from the local shelter, I never anticipated he would have food allergies and, likely, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
    The result was, he couldn’t eat regular dog food. It made him sick, resulting in vomiting and diarrhoea. His appetite waned, and he began losing weight. Euthanasia became a likely prospect, since he was suffering and there seemed no treatment that would correct the problem. Even my vets were stymied.
    Then I came across Freshpet’s ad and decided to try their food. The Vital food seemed appropriate and since I started him on it, he absolutely has thrived. Almost overnight, his appetite improved and his stools went from soupy to solid. It was nothing short of miraculous. Thanks Freshpet for saving my dog from a fate worse than death.

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 – 1/2
11-20 lbs 1/2 – 3/4
21-40 lbs 1 1/4 – 1 1/2
41-60lbs 1 1/4 – 1 1/2
61-100lbs 1 1/2 – 1 3/4
*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.
