A few years ago, my mom's senior lab mix really started having problems chewing and swallowing. It was recommended to her to water down her dogs dry food into mush--well that's certainly not appetizing. Neither are most canned foods with their "gel" from the meat plus the ingredients seem kind of gross too. My mom decided to try Freshpet Select and this was the perfect solution! It's soft enough for Bonnie to chew, it's fresh and you can see what ingredients are in it and it's wholesome. Not to mention Bonnie LOVES it. She will bark at the refrigerator every night at dinner time until my mom gets it out. She makes a trip to the store 2x a week before she has a mutiny on her hands. I am so happy to say that Bonnie is now 16 years old, cancer free, still playful, and still VERY MUCH loves eating time with Freshpet Select!
