    Best Food For Picky Fur Babies

    By AFrey on Aug 8, 2021

    I have a short haired Chihuahua, and she’s a real drama queen when it comes to eating! I have tried so many different brands and types of fur baby food from Chewy and other pet stores with no success until now! Sammie absolutely loves Freshpet Vital! Sammie is such the drama queen that she will wait you out and not eat anything for over a day or two! But now she comes running for Freshpet! Thank You Freshpet and Chewy! My precious little drama queen is now happy and healthy!

    My dogs so far love this but

    By sharon on Jul 30, 2021

    My dogs so far love this but they are very picky and who knows how long they will continue to love it but so far so good. My only issue is it says on the top of the box do not freeze. When it was shipped they put ice gel packs on the top of the box that were still frozen and did NOT freeze the top 2 loaves. On the bottom of the box they put dry ice and the bottom 2 loaves in the box came frozen solid. I contacted Chewy and they contacted Fresh Pet and were told it would be ok to feed the dogs once it is defrosted. Just kind of worried why they have big black lettering on top of the box that says DO NOT FREEZE. it also says do not drop and I am guessing that is because they would break open.
