At Freshpet, we know that nutrition often plays a critical role in aiding many diseases and health issues. While Freshpet was initially developed and labeled for normal healthy pets, we have found that many pet parents 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 pet.
Therapy will not work if the patient does not eat. Freshpet has a very high level of fresh meats, veggies and eggs which helps encourage food intake, even in the most reluctant patient.
Fortified with pre-biotics (soluble fibers) to support gastrointestinal health, Freshpet uses fresh ingredients and minimal processing and they enhance palatability and increase digestibility. Freshpet can be used instead of bland home-cooked meals with and we know it is complete and balanced.
Omega 6 and 3 help support a healthy immune system and can maintain healthy skin and coat.
High quality protein sources with amino acid profile of high biological value that helps support tissue health and repair mechanisms.
Freshpet may be an ideal choice for certain food sensitivities and itchy skin because of our simple ingredient list, gentle process, single-sourced protein options and limited grains.
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 helps patients better respond to trauma.
When eating is critical, many patients readily accept Freshpet.
