Freshpet set out on a mission to revolutionize the way all pets are fed by making fresh, natural food. They gathered a team of the best in both pet and human food and in October 2006, they were cooking nutritious, fresh meals for pets. Soon, their little company started to grow and they found themselves delivering fresh, refrigerated pet food to more and more stores. They are incredibly proud and humbled that over 1 million pet parents now use their food from their retail network of over 13,000 fridges across North America.
Xena has always been a fan of Freshpet food and the Freshpet Select Tender Chicken with Vegetables & Brown Rice Dog Food Recipe was no exception. I love feeding Xena Freshpet because they use simple ingredients that I use when I cook, such as Chicken, Chicken Liver, Chicken Broth, Carrots, Eggs, Peas and Brown Rice. My husband cannot stand feeding our animals typical wet dog or cat food because the smell is horrible, but he has no problem with these. The Freshpet Select Tender Chicken with Vegetables & Brown Rice smelled like lunch meat.
Xena loves bacon so we knew she would love the Freshpet Dog Joy Turkey Bacon. These dog treats are made with real, wood smoked turkey and you can really tell that when you look at it and smell it. In the week that this package of treats lasted Xena would hear the fridge open and come running hoping it was treat time.
Freshpet also makes cat food which we have never tried. Mocha is a very picky kitty and always has been since we brought her home as a kitten. She has her preferred cat litter, dry food, wet food and treats and is really a snob when it comes to change. She likes the wet food that is chunky and not the Pâté so I was really hopeful that she would like the Freshpet food.
As you can see it has a good consistency and is made from real ingredients like Chicken Broth, Chicken, Chicken Liver, Ocean Whitefish, Carrots, Natural Flavors, Eggs and Spinach. Mocha did end up eating it, but over the course of a couple of days, which is slow for her. With her normal wet food she would finish it in a half hour or less. Contrary to what you normally hear about cats, Mocha does not like fish so it could be that it contained whitefish.
