We rescued Lucy at six months. Beagles can put weight on quickly and despite using a diet kibble brand, she was not losing weight. We started her on Freshpet in April and also began walking her very consistently at least 40 minutes a day. Most days there are two 40 minute walks. She weighed 46 lbs when we started and today she weighed in at 38lbs. We could not be more pleased and by the way, she loves the food. We also have an 11 year yorkie bichon mix on this food and what a difference it has made in her energy.
