Default Does anyone feed raw Fresh Pet?

I saw a Petco the other day and stopped in to look around. I wanted to buy S&C and Primal, but found out those brands are store specific and Petco don't carry it. I order them online all the time. I found Fresh Pet. They had all many different proteins like Turkey. The only one that Midgie could have was the Bison which has cranberries and blueberries in it. As soon as we got home, I gave it to her for supper and she inhaled it. It's a winner!! It's in a round roll like you would buy ground beef in. They had two sizes, but I got the smaller size of the two to see how she'd do on it. It was only $11 and it has 1/4 measurements on it for easy cutting. I'll by able to get many meals out of this for her. I'm planning on buying the bigger tube next time I can go there.
Just wondering if anyone else feeds this and how it's worked for you.

Fresh Pet is processed and uses grains, fillers and synthetic supplements. Not the best thing to feed. You'll do much better (and save money) by buying raw from your local butcher and cutting everything down into individual meal portions. You can freeze what won't be eaten within 2 days, and then defrost accordingly as you need it. For example, I buy one organic chicken (organs in) for around $12, and this will last nearly two weeks. Plus it cuts out the grains and processed stuff, so it's better for your pup.

Fresh pet may be refridgerated (part of its marketing strategy more then anything else) but it is not raw. I thought maybe they came up with a raw version but not according to their website. It is more on par with a middle of the road kibble or wet food in my opinion. If you are looking for a quality pre made raw stick to the s&c or primal. Fresh pet is marketed to look like a raw food but appeal to people not wanting so spend a lot of money. For some reason it coming out of a refridgerator makes people think it is higher quality.

Wow, Thanks for the info! I have the beef & bison recipe which says 85% beef, bison, beef liver & bison liver; 10% fruits & veggies; 0% grains & potatoes.

Bison, Beef, Beef Liver, Spinach, Blueberries, Cranberries, Pomegranate, Carrageenan, Calcium Carbonate, Natural Flavors, Broccoli, Inulin, Flaxseed Oil, Green Tea Extract, Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Niacin, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid, Calcium Sulfate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite.

Grain and potato free
Pasteurized and ready to serve
Natural ingredients with added vitamins and minerals.
Complete and balanced for all life stages
80% or more of fresh poultry, meat, or fish.

I don't like the part that says pasteurized. She seems to be doing good on this, but I'm also feeding the raw, s&c and primal.

You are right on target with the theory of coming out of the fridge. Had me fooled. Thanks for letting me know. And here I thought I found another good alternative. Good grief.

Great info! I've always wondered if fresh pet was a good food or not. I was fooled too by the marketing. I haven't ever tried it though.
