Please use our guide on freshpet.com or on the back of packs once purchased to guide you. We guarantee at least 3 weeks before expiry. But once opened you have 7 days to use the product because like any fresh product it will spoil once expose to air. Please always keep refrigerated between 1-4 degrees.
What is the best way to switch to an all Freshpet diet?
When switching from another brand of pet food to Freshpet, we recommend doing so gradually over a period of 7-10 days.
Can Freshpet foods be frozen and stored in my freezer for future use?
We don’t freeze our Freshpet recipes after we’ve gently cooked them and packaged them. So we recommend serving our food fresh from the fridge for the best results, but you can choose to freeze any unused portions for later use. Be aware that you may see a slight change in colour and texture when thawed, but this won’t change the nutritional value or taste of our meals.
Once served, how long is it safe to leave Freshpet refrigerated foods in my dog or cat's bowl?
Treat Freshpet refrigerated foods as if you would freshly prepared foods at home. We recommend that you do not leave refrigerated food in the bowl for longer than 2-3 hours.
Is Freshpet complete and balanced nutrition?
Freshpet foods are 100% complete and balanced and exceed AAFCO’s minimum standards for adult canine and feline nutrition. To ensure your pet is getting all the nutrition he or she requires, feed a complete and balanced food.
Is the protein level in Freshpet recipes appropriate for all dogs?
For pets that have pancreatic problems or compromised renal function (i.e. kidney), high protein diets made from meat and fish should be avoided. If your pet suffers from these conditions, consult your veterinarian to determine if Freshpet is appropriate.
My pet is on a special diet from our veterinarian. Can I use Freshpet food?
It’s always best to ask your veterinarian if Freshpet is appropriate for your pet’s specific condition before introducing it into his or her diet.
How can I tell is the product is fresh when I buy it at the store?
Just like the fresh human food you buy, there is a sell by date on each package of Freshpet food. Once opened, we recommend you use our foods within 4 days.

Are Freshpet foods all-natural?
Yes, Freshpet foods only use all natural ingredients. Freshpet foods never contain any artificial or chemical preservatives (BHA, propylene glycol) commonly found in traditional dry, canned and semi-moist pet food.
Why does Freshpet use fresh meats instead of rendered meats?
Freshpet uses fresh meats because they are fresher, held to higher quality standards, and are never pre-processed. Our fresh meats only include muscle meats, are never frozen or heated prior to being included in our recipes, and must be used within 4 days. Meat meals can include varying types and qualities of meat and waste products, are highly processed, and can have a shelf life of up to one year.
Why do your products include garlic? Isn't it harmful to pets?
All of our rolls and roasted meal contains garlic in small amounts. To reach a level of toxicity, a pet would have to consume the entire bulb of fresh garlic at each feeding. The garlic component that is toxic to the dog is the allicin chemical. A more general term. Allicin is the “smell and oil” when you crush the garlic. Our garlic powder contains less than 0.2% allicin which is very safe to be used.
Why do your products include salt? Shouldn't we monitor sodium intake for pets
Freshpet uses minimal amounts of salt and potassium chloride (lite salt) in our recipes to help combine our fresh meats. Our salt levels are within the ranges recommended by veterinary nutritionists.
