Fresh Therapy

At Freshpet, we know that nutrition often plays a critical role in the treatment of many diseases and health issues. And while Freshpet was initially developed and labeled for normal healthy pets, we have found that many practitioners may use it as an adjunct to their therapy based on its unique features. Listed below are just a few of those attributes that may make Freshpet an ideal choice for your patient.

Benefits of Freshpet When Used With Compromised Cases

High Palatability

Therapy will not work if the patient does not eat. Freshpet has superior palatability, often recommended to stimulate patient’s appetites. Freshpet is made from a blend of fresh meats, fish and eggs to encourage food intake even in the most reluctant patient.

Promotes a healthy gastrointestinal tract

Fortified with pre-biotics (soluble fibers) to support gastrointestinal health. Fresh ingredients and minimal processing enhance palatability and increase digestibility of those ingredients. Can be used instead of bland home-cooked meals with greater compliance and feeding a complete and balanced diet.

Ideal mix of Fatty Acids

Optimal Omega 6:3 ratio helps to support a healthy immune system, helps reduce inflammation, and promotes healing.

Muscle & tissue health

High quality protein sources and an ideal amino acid profile to support tissue health, regeneration and repair.

Limited source proteins

Freshpet may be an ideal choice from certain food sensitivities and dermatological problems because of our simple ingredient, single-sourced proteins, and limited grains.

Healing and Recovery

Freshpet is also a superior diet for recovery and post-op due to its palatability, digestibility and high levels of quality protein used.

High stress levels from trauma or other compromised health issues can increase the pet’s protein turnover. Freshpet contains higher protein levels than the typical maintenance diet. In fact most maintenance diets may be too low in protein requiring the pet to use the available protein for energy rather than for healing. Freshpet’s nutrient dense protein sources provide an ideal amino acid profile that is essential for tissue repair and regeneration, and help patients better respond to trauma.

When eating is critical, many patients readily accept Freshpet.

High digestibility

High quality ingredients and gentle cooking provide high digestibility.
