Freshpet Stocks the Fridge With Specially Designed Nutrition for Small Dogs Within Expanded 'Select' Line
SECAUCUS, N.J., Feb. 14: Freshpet Inc., the first and only maker of real, all-natural, fresh food for pets in the U.S., announced the introduction of four new Freshpet Select meals designed for dogs and cats with the right nutritional balance to help them lead healthy, happy lives.
Dog ownership has increased steadily among households in recent years, having reached 85 million families in 2017, with households owning small dogs under 25 pounds representing 55 percent of that market*. The Freshpet Select Small Dog meal features tender, bite-sized morsels of 100 percent US farm-raised chicken that are just the right size for the smallest of our furry family members. The recipe is formulated with targeted levels of protein and fat to support small dog high-energy requirements and is also grain-free, making it ideal for dogs with grain allergies as well as sensitive skins, coats, or stomachs. The tender chicken is perfectly complemented by antioxidant rich carrots and cranberries for an enriched taste.
All Freshpet Select meals offer wholesome and balanced recipes made with the highest quality 100 percent natural poultry or beef with vitamin-rich garden vegetables, are free of corn and wheat and never include any meat meals, meat powders or by-product meals. In addition to the recipe designed for small dogs, three new Freshpet Select meals are now available at traditional grocery retailers nationwide, including:
•Freshpet Select Beef Roasted Meal (1.5 lbs): Made with 100 percent natural farm-raised beef, this meal is complemented by antioxidant-rich garden vegetables such as sweet potatoes, green beans and carrots.
•Freshpet Select Grain Free Chicken Roasted Meal (1.75 lbs): Made with 100 percent natural farm-raised chicken and an infusion of antioxidant rich carrots and spinach, this recipe is designed for dogs with grain allergies and sensitive skin, coat, or stomach.
•Freshpet Select Chicken & Beef Roasted Meal for Cats (1 lb): This moisture-rich recipe is made with 100 percent natural farm-raised chicken and beef with vibrant carrots and leafy spinach, specially designed for felines.
"Our company is fully focused on providing dogs and cats with real, fresh food that makes a difference in their happy, tail-wagging lives," said John Speranza, vice president of marketing at Freshpet. "All four new recipes provide unique benefits to cater to any pet's palette or dietary restrictions and, given the increasing number of households with small dogs, we felt passionate about designing a recipe specifically tailored to their nutritional needs and smaller bite size."
At Freshpet, the magic starts with the fresh ingredients used in its Bethlehem, PA kitchens, where every meal is made from scratch. Each meal is gently steamed so the ingredients retain their natural goodness and provide the essential nutrients cats and dogs need for boundless energy and healthy lives. There are never any preservatives, which is why you'll find Freshpet meals in the fridge at your local grocery or pet store.
