Default Stella and chewy freeze dried raw patties

Does anyone feed this food? I was looking at the fat content and it seems very high. I am concerned that this might cause pancreatitis if fed continually?

I feed the frozen patties, my dogs do great on them. They get the freeze dried occasionally.. I haven't heard of anyone having issues w/ the fat content.

The frozen have much less fat than the freeze dried, maybe I should get those.

Do you feed the frozen patties alone? How much do you feed?

Thanks

I got the freeze dried for my two maltese dogs today. We haven't tried them yet, so no feedback as of yet. I did the reading on them though. Just don't feed a lot in a daily basis. Control the amount of feeding to your dog's requirement. I've read that some suggest feeding a little less that what S&C suggests for weight in a general guidance.

Having said that, everything I read about S&C was positive feedback from consumers all the best!

I fed them to Bailey when she was going through her picky stage and she did great!

Chico and Kody are fed this freeze-dried brand... they are very healthy.... they like the 'Duck duck goose' and the 'beef'..... they are not crazy about the other 'flavors'....

oh and this is one comment I read about the feeding.
Quote:
The only thing that worries me is that people may not rehydrate them with plenty of warm water. Much too high of protein to not reconstitute with plenty of water. You could easily raise the liver enzymes in a dog with undiagnosed asymptomatic MVD. And on top of that, really stresses and overworks the kidneys.
So we are going to use plenty of water for the malts and because I had this plan, I searched up further and found another feedback from another person who uses this food for his dog:
Quote:
Here are a few tips with the freeze-dried Stella & Chewy's Dinners:

The freeze-dried can be rehydrated either in a bowl or on a plate, whichever you prefer (I use a bowl).

Rehydration goes faster if the patty is broken up and then the warm (NOT hot) water is poured over and then mixed.

Do not use hot water as it will begin to cook the product, thus lessening the nutrients and cooking the raw bone.

Water should not be much warmer than a baby bottle (test on inside of wrist).

Do not microwave as it will have the same effect of beginning to cook the product.

Feeding guidelines are just guidelines...they're neither too high, nor too low. You may need to adjust them based on your dog's needs.
I thought of sharing along what I read and learned (:

I feed the Stella and Chewys freeze dried occasionally. Brody likes the dandy lamb flavor the best. I have never heard anyone complain about too high of a fat content. It's an excellent food.
