Beware: FRESHPET is killing my dog! Sasha is currently at the vet being treated for kidney failure and liver damage. Hopeful for a full recovery. She is a 38 lbs mixed breed. I had been feeding her chicken breast with rice and a multivitamin until I discovered Fresh...

This dog food seems nothing more than processed bologna. I’ve fed my 4 year old GSD Raw food since he was weened.

He’s the healthiest dog we have ever seen and never never had a single day of diarrhea (all his life!) UNTIL we added some beef FreshPet. Within a couple days of eating this (mixed with his regular raw food, he had urgent greasy runs of diarrhea. We foolishly added FreshPet because we were running low on his Raw Food mix made by his breeder. I can’t imagine people feeding this processed stuff as a staple food for their pets.

We could not be more disappointed and obviously we feel foolish for purchasing this stuff and betrayed by FreshPet’s claims. If your dog has diarrhea 90% of the time it is what he is eating!

We love Fresh Pet

I have fed my dogs Fresh Pet for years, they not only love it, but have had no ill effects. My 2 dogs are brother and sister Doxie and Chihaha mix. I will continue to feed them the multi protein (their first choice) as long as I can find it. Otherwise it is chicken and veggie mix.

  • Convenient and fresh
  • Dog is healthy loves it

Dog food is missing ingredient

We purchase three bags of fresh pet dog food and yet had chicken missing from it and they added more carrots I contacted them and they to coupons so were all good here

User's recommendation: Look through the window of the little bag and see if you can see all the contents of chew should be getting with the food.

Allergic reaction

I have a Chinese crested, light pale skin. I can see every spot on him after eating fresh pet roll chicken he started breaking out in hives not knowing it was the food took him to the vet came home with meds, but he still kept breaking out In hives. I continued his allergy meds, but they were not helping. I finally decided to stop the fresh pet and give him Rachel Ray beef stew 2 days later all his hives were gone. Furthermore, I will not be feeding my dogs fresh pet anymore. To think we buy this stuff thinking we are giving are pets/children because they are my babies a good healthy food, and it's full of garbage making are pets sick

User's recommendation: Discontinue feeding.

Not in stock

My Chihuahua loves Fresh pet but only one store around here sells it. Wal-Mart in Bonsack. I hit it lucky once in a while so I buy at least 3 bags. My last visit Wal-Mart had Little Cesar food in the Freshpet refrigerator. Why is it so hard to get this food?

Switching your dog’s food abruptly can cause gastrointestinal upset such as vomiting, diarrhea, and a decreased appetite. Any time you decide to change your dog’s food, you should transition to the new diet gradually in order to give your dog’s system time to adjust to the change.

Ideally, these transitions should happen over 5-7 days. During this transition, you will gradually incorporate more and more of the new food by mixing it with your dog’s current diet. For most dogs, a good diet transition will look like this: Day 1: 25% new diet and 75% old diet. Day 3: 50% new diet and 50% old diet.

Day 5: 75% new diet and 25% old diet. Day 7: 100% new diet.

When I first tried FreshPet Dog Food, I thought it was great. Mr. Doodles, my 11-year-old dog, is very picky about eating. However, he always ate FreshPet dog food. Then there's my 6-year-old dog, Bugzy, who has a weak stomach. She didn't get sick right away. However,...

Nutritional concerns.

My dog never seems fulfilled. She seems hungry all the time. I feed her much more than the recommended quantity suggested by the manufacturer. Besides that, it is too expensive, especially since she needs to eat so much of it.

User's recommendation: Beware.

Dog joy chicken sticks

Shortages of dog joy chicken sticks. I was told they were taken off market due to supply shortages. My dogs love them.

User's recommendation: Just cross your fingers and hope they come back on the market.

Warn others

My dogs, cats, feral cats, raccoons and wild fox would not even touch this stuff. I received the bags and huge tubes of the chicken and vegetable dog food as a donation to my animal rescue. It was not even close to expiring and was kept cold. When i first opened the bag it smelled good. But after two minutes you will not be able to stand it. None of my animals would touch it. I put it out back for wild raccoons and fox and they do not even want it.

User's recommendation: Don't waste your money.

Nasty cold food

My dogs won't eat it unless I heat it. No thanks. If I need to do that, I might as well cook them dinner. No thanks. At least canned food is room temp.

User's recommendation: Save your money unless your dogs eat cold dead animals.

Cold food

My Border Collies don't like cold food. I am not in the habit of cooking for them. Having to nuke your refrigerated food, doesn't work for any of us.

User's recommendation: Save your money. Unless your dogs eat anything.
