Best Fresh Food For Dogs
Well, to start with, this was a really fun review to do. Freshpet sent us a variety cooler full of their dog food and treats. They have a variety of natural, and most importantly, FRESH food for dogs and cats. They understand that pets are a part of the family, and they set out to create high quality, nutritious, and delicious food for them.
Freshpet actually holds a special place in my heart. My little Chihuahua, Bentley, had some health problems a few years ago. They vet suspected low blood sugar episodes, which made sense since he was a picky eater, very small, and didn’t always eat all of the food we gave him. We went on the search for a high-quality food that he would be sure to eat every day, and something that would help keep his blood sugar at a safe level. We found Freshpet in a refrigerator at the back of our local pet specialty store. Freshpet foods are meant to be refrigerated. You refrigerator your meat and vegetables, right? Why wouldn’t you do the same for your dog or cat? The cost was higher than what we were paying for our dry dog food, but the associate at the store had good things to say, so we tried it. I’m proud to say that to this day, Bentley hasn’t had a low blood sugar episode since. He LOVES freshpet.
Several varieties of Freshpet come in a tube, kind of like a summer sausage, or they have some that come in a soft pellet form. The tubes have handy guides on the wrapper, just like on a stick of butter, so it’s easy to portion out. When looking at the slice of food, you can actually see the vegetables in it – big chunks of carrots and peas. They don’t use any by-products or fillers – just real food. Their Deli Fresh version promote digestive health, their Vital line is grain-free and contains 80% or more of fresh poultry, meat or fish, and they even have a Veterinary Nutrition line, made specifically for aiding healing in recovering pets. On top of these great foods, they offer a selection of 100% natural dog treats that contain no soy, corn, or wheat.
I want the best for my dogs, and I want them to eat food that they enjoy. Can you imagine what it would be like if every single meal, you looked down at your plate and only had dry, bland cereal? You wouldn’t eat that every single meal, so why should your pets? We received some sweet potato treats that look similar to sweet potato beef jerkey, and to be completely honest, they looked good enough that I wouldn’t mind eating them. This sounds like the kind of food I would want to eat if I were an animal. I think the photos above speak for themselves. All three dogs are thoroughly enjoying their food. It was so good, in fact, Milo couldn’t help but assist his brother with finishing his bowl as well. My dogs are picky eaters. This “photo shoot” was very difficult. The food was gone so quickly that I only had under a minute to get the pictures that I needed!
