As a nutritionally based private chef, I've always prepared roasted chicken, brown rice and cooked carrots for my now 15 year old Yorkie Bren and my previous dog and cats. I have never trusted any canned foods due to preservatives and other additives. All of my pets lived remarkably long and healthy lives. As my teacup Yorkie ages he's become a little more finicky about eating, which causes concern in an under 6 lb dog. I have needed to roast bone in chicken breasts every 3 days and even then he sometimes eats very little. Last week I found Freshpet select in a local Target and bought two to try. Wow! After telling him it was pate, this dog has been thrilled with your products. He's been eating like a champ and really loves it! Thanks so much for your fine pet food that make both of us happy! It's so much easier all around and he doesn't have any digestive issues. We are very pleased!
