Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie Love this dog food!
My 4 dogs love this food. The 3 big dogs get about half Stella freeze dried and half dry dog food (i rotate several different kinds). My little guy gets about 80% freeze dried and the rest dry food. None of them are overweight, they all have beautiful shiny coats and the little guys skin issues from allergies are completely gone. My 15 year old husky mix is in great health for her age and nobody can ever believe shes that old. The only complaint i have is the size of the bags. Venison is my favorite flavor to feed but the biggest bag it comes in is 15oz which is gone in less than a week. If i was rollin' in dough that would be no big deal however thats not the case. Some of the other flavors come in a 25 oz. bag which is a better deal but still only lasts about 2 weeks. I know i cant be the only person who feeds this to multiple dogs. Even if they made a couple flavors available in large quantities it would help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tester357 Too costly for larger dogs
I recently transitioned my two retired racing greyhounds (60 and 80 lbs.) from dry kibble to freeze-dried b/c they just wouldn't eat the dry despite my efforts to try numerous brands over the past 6 mos. Thanks to Stella & Chewy, I've been able to add their dinner patties (and meal toppers) in order to transition them without nasty side effects. They are pretty much eating around the kibble, so it has been a bit of a struggle ensuring that they are taking in enough calories. Their favorite flavors are the duck and the surf n turf. My only complaint that keeps me from giving this product 5 stars is that it is wayyyyy too expensive to feed them this alone based on their size/weight. It would cost me more than $400/month to feed this to them exclusively. It would be terrific if S&C could provide the same quality product but in a more cost effective way for larger dogs. As such, the freeze-dried patties may end up being a transition food that will eventually take them from freeze-dried to raw. I am definitely willing to spend the $$$ on a high quality food, but for this product and at this price, it will eat is out of house and home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Rosiedog For the picky pet!
We have a small, under 5 pounds, Chinwa named Rosie. She is a nosy little thing. Her "sniffer" is always going and boy can it turn up at most foods. We have tried so many dog foods! From high end specialty foods to run of the meal generic stuff (some just to see if she would eat it not because we thought it was good quality!), fresh, frozen, homemade, dried, canned and any other thing we came acrossed. She might try it. Might even eat it a couple times But after that she would give us a look as if we had used her dish as a bathroom.
We got a sample of Stella and Chewy from a chain pet store and she seemed to really enjoy it so we bought a bag. That was over 3 years ago and she is still enjoying it. Duck is her favorite but she will mix it up a bit and eat some Rabbit or Beef once in awhile.
Stella and Chewy isn't always easy to find. The place we normally got it recently sold and the new company isn't going to carry it so we went looking. Someone mentioned this site to us and we placed an order on Auto Delivery. First packages came in just a few days in perfect condition. Looking forward to it just coming to our door and the option to adjust how often and how much as we need to!
Nothing but happy with the product and also with chewy.com so far!

My 11 year old pug loves these patties. The added moisture you put on them is great for the aging dog too. This food is expensive, so I have to still give her kibble mixed in.

However so much product crumbles and is difficult to reconstitute it's wasted - it gets mushy with water.
I'd like to find another freeze dried food that holds up or is less expensive.
The toppers are better than the patties (what's the difference anyway)? Since they hold up better.
Maybe change your packaging!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alphamom Dogs love it but they are soft patties.
Dogs love the duck duck goose patties! The patties are very soft and so the crumble very easily, so you have a bag of crumbs. Will order again.
