Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

Can you refreeze the remaining unopened bags once the shipment arrives at my house
Answer by ChewySep 19, 2022
Freshpet recommends serving this food fresh from the fridge for the best results, but you can choose to freeze any unused portions for later use. Be aware that you may see a slight change in color and texture when thawed, but this won’t change the nutritional value or taste of the meals. No Freshpet food is frozen before being purchased at your local store.

Where (what countries) are the ingredients sourced from?
Answer by ChewyNov 05, 2022
Freshpet believe in building long-term supplier partnerships to source healthy and sustainable ingredients with many being locally sourced to Freshpet Kitchens. 96% of Freshpet ingredients are from North America. The other 4% are non-domestic, such as Europe, and are also non-Chinese origin.

Is this food okay for puppies?
Answer by ChewySep 29, 2022
This recipe is formulated for dogs a year or older.

what are 'natural flavors'?
Answer by ChewyAug 30, 2022
The natural flavors are a proprietary blend of natural ingredients used to enhance the flavor of our fresh foods.

I have been searching for a replacement for the Tylees frozen dog food, which is no longer available After trying other brands…this is the one! My dachshunds are NOT picky eaters. But I have never seen them get so excited to be fed. I can’t get it ready fast enough. And when their bowl is licked clean, they beg for more. So I have started giving them a very small follow up bowl/taste when they finish their main dish. They actually look up expecting their “chaser”. I feel good about the quality and ingredients used by Freshpet. When I first opened the bag it smelled so good I wanted to eat it lol. I also like the fact that this human grade food is not so high in calories. I like to stay around 260-270 calories per cup and this does. I highly recommend Freshpet.

Fresh Pet Dog food

This was my first time purchasing a refrigerated pet food. I was impressed. It came packed in dry ice to keep it cold, the box was not all banged up, like many packages are delivered these days, and it was delivered within 2 days of ordering. I recommend this company to everyone I know who has a fur baby, very highly.

Freshpet is a perfect addition to our babies diet

Thank you for carrying Freshpet. We have been feeding our 22 year old Shih Tzu this in stead of hard kibble for about a year combined with her soft Beauty from Royal Canin. Our 5 year old little shih tzus get some sprinkled on top of their kibble and soft food too. We love being able to order it now vs having to find it in the grocery stores that sometimes have limited availability.

Fur baby LOVES his food

My 13yo Yorkshire became a lone pup in the household, after his sister passed away. I thought enough of the kidney diet food she was on (therefore, so was he) and try something different that tasted better. He did his food dance every night and scarfed it down with no problem. He does leave bits of veggies behind but at least he eats most of it. Last vet visit has diagnosed him with pancreatitis, back to diet food. :(

Feel Good Food

I am dogsitting for a month and this dog is so anxious he will barely eat. Not to mention, I noticed his teeth are terrible and the food he was sent with is hard. It must hurt his teeth just to chew it because he barely eats it and whines a little when he does. His owner told me that he was not eating as much at home before we took him, I think I know why! And since his owner is out of reach for the time being I wanted to find food that would be OK for him to switch to and settled on this kind. But I was not settling at all! He loves it and I am glad to announce that he is able to actually eat it without any cries or whining. I am buying a lot so that when his owner is back she can continue to have some to feed him until she can purchase some on her own. I say it is a feel good food because I feel good about the ingredients and knowing that he is eating well while in my care.

Fresh Pet is the best!

My dogs absolutely love this food! It is small breed formula, but I still mash it more with a fork so my babies do not have to chew such big bites. They eat it so fast! This food was recommended by my holistic veterinarian.
