Stella & Chewy's
Natural Goodness for Dogs and Cats
Stella & Chewy's innovative line of freeze-dried foods and treats takes all of the hard work out of providing your four-legged friend with a nutrient-rich, raw diet. Commercial pet food is prepared at extreme temperatures, which results in much of its nutritional value being literally cooked away. In contrast, Stella & Chewy products are natural and raw, which many veterinarians believe is better for pets. The closer foods stay to their natural state, the better they are! Plus, all of Stella & Chewy's delicious freeze-dried dinners and treats are made with real, raw, naturally raised meat, poultry or fish, sourced from USDA-inspected facilities, without added hormones or antibiotics. That means that every bite of Stella & Chewy is filled to the brim with the savory flavors that dogs (and cats) naturally crave. More than just quality protein goes into Stella & Chewy's tasty recipes; organic cranberries, carrots, apples, spinach, broccoli, beets, squash and pumpkin seed are also recurring guests on the ingredients list. And to ensure your pet gets a balanced meal, every Stella & Chewy mouth-watering recipe is enhanced with essential vitamins and minerals.
What the heck is freeze-dried pet food?
Freeze-drying is a process whereby all the moisture is removed from a product without cooking. The product is first frozen and then put into a freeze dryer. Inside the freeze dryer, powerful pumps create a vacuum and extremely cold temperatures. Very low levels of heat are applied to the shelves on which the trays of product sit, enabling the ice within the meat to "sublimate" directly into water vapor, skipping the liquid stage. The product changes from frozen to freeze-dried without ever being thawed or cooked, thereby retaining all of the nutritional value of raw meat, minus the water. With Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried dinners and treats, you get the best of both worlds: the benefits of raw food with the convenience of dry food.
