We have a 10 year old Japanese Chin who's had dental issues his whole life. We used to soak food so he could eat it (because we didn't want to give him crummy canned food). Freshpet was a life-saver! He loves the flavor (he would get bored with the soaked food) and his weight is up, his energy is fantastic, his eyes and coat are bright. I like that the only preservative is the fridge! Way better than canned food.
