Everything You Need to Know About Our Freshpet Vital Recipes

At Freshpet, we believe our pets deserve real, fresh food to help them live their best and happiest lives. This inspired us to develop a different philosophy for pet food: use fresh, whole ingredients, gently cooked without preservatives, and keep it in the fridge where meats belong.

As we grew, we started to develop different lines of recipes, one of which is our Freshpet Vital Non-GMO recipes. All Freshpet recipes are made with the same high-quality standards in our Bethlehem, PA Kitchens, with 100% natural ingredients and never any preservatives, rendered meat meals, or ingredients from China. But what makes our Vital recipes a bit different is the fact that they are tested and verified to be 100% Non-GMO.

Choose from unique and premium proteins

One of the things pet parents love about our Vital recipes is the huge variety of ingredients we offer for their dog or cat. If you’re looking to mix up your pet’s meals, there are a number of unique and premium proteins you can choose from, including bison, lamb, and salmon. A favorite among our four-legged friends is the Freshpet Vital Grain-Free Beef & Bison Recipe with Spinach, Cranberries & Blueberries for Dogs. This high protein, grain-free roll is a healthy dog food recipe made of 100% natural beef and bison with antioxidant-rich spinach, blueberries and cranberries.

Great for pets with allergies and specific diets

If your pet has allergies or follows a special diet, Vital also has our widest choice of grain-free and chicken-free recipes. A top pick among dogs who prefer a meal variety other than our rolls is our Freshpet Vital Grain-Free Beef Recipe with Lamb & Antioxidant-Rich Fruits & Vegetables. Available in a 5.5 lb. bag, this recipe is a high protein, grain-free complete meal made of 100% natural beef, lamb, and egg mixed with antioxidant-rich spinach and cranberries.

Options for all life stages

While all Freshpet recipes are complete and balanced meals, Vital recipes are complete and balanced for all life stages. We even have specific a puppy recipe that’s packed with added nutrients for growing dogs. Our Vital Grain-Free Chicken, Beef & Salmon Puppy Recipe is the best puppy food because it’s a high-protein, grain-free roll made of 100% natural fresh chicken, beef, salmon, and egg with antioxidant-rich spinach and sweet potatoes. It’s specifically crafted with calcium for bone and joint growth, DHA to support brain development, and omega 6 & 3 for healthy skin and coat.

Special recipes for cats

Cat parents don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you! We have an entire line of Freshpet Vital recipes just for cats, including our popular Vital Grain Free Chicken & Beef Recipe. This delicious, paté-style recipe comes in a 1 lb. roll and is made of 100% natural fresh chicken, beef and egg for a complete and balanced dish that will have your feline excited for mealtime.

Freshpet Vital recipes are sold at pet speciality stores like Petco and PetSmart. To find the best dog food and cat recipes in a Freshpet Vital fridge near you, check out our Store Locator.
