We want to deliver the best option to your pet’s bowl. That’s why we use ingredients like bison and wild Alaskan pollock for dogs with particular allergies, and antioxidant-rich fruit, like blueberries, to support a healthy immune system.

    Saved my dog!

    My family got a 3 year old collie from a friend who had her on a dry food. Juliette wouldn’t touch it. I tried getting an expensive dry food to mix with it to wean her off it but she still wouldn’t eat. It had been 2 days at this point. I went to the pet store remembering they carried Freshpet. I am so happy to say, she ate every last bite. Thank you for making this product! I’ll feed nothing else to her.

    Unbelievable benefits

    I bought this product 3 weeks ago for my Frenchie, she suffers from allergies ans switched dry foods 3 times over the last year with not much relief. I had enough and went fresh. In 3 weeks her itching has decreased and her coat has changed to silky smooth. Love this product and so does my baby.

    Zoie loves this!

    Zoie is almost 15 and I’ve have her on a special diet for her mild stage 2 Kidney failure. She hated the food, didn’t eat very much and lost 10% of her body weight in 6 months. I switched her to Freshpet for small dogs and she is back to eating normally. Thanks Freshpet.

    More time with my senior dog

    I have a 20yr old poodle who was suffering from seizures... Sadly I had been conferring with my vet and contemplating when to humanely euthanize my baby. I switched to your food, It worked, but what I didn't expect was a complete turnaround in his overall health and wellness!

    My picky eater loves this

    My dog is a very picky eater, but not with this product. As soon as I set the bowl down she starts eating and licks her plate clean. I’ve tried other subscription fresh dog food brands, but my dog would always just sniff it and walk away. I’m so glad that I’ve finally found good and nutritious food that she loves.
