You Helped Us Celebrate Our 20th Birthday

Your Pet Tried Lots of Tasty New Food
You asked us for exciting new innovations in pet food and we delivered! This year we launched tons of products, including SuperBlends kibble and new recipes of FreshMade, our 100% human grade, gently cooked dog food. Your favorite Meal Mixers recipes expanded to include Surf & Turf and a Perfectly Puppy recipe as well as Dandy Lamb and Tantalizing Turkey in larger 35oz. bag sizes. You also asked us to expand our wet cat food selection, so we added Carnivore Cravings Morsels’N’Gravy wet pouches. We also gave you two new freeze-dried raw dinner morsel recipes– Bountiful Beef and Plate Lickin’ Pork! For cats who like to switch things up, we now offer variety packs of our Carnivore Cravings Savory Shreds and Purrfect Pâté cans. What was your pet’s favorite?
You Recommended Us So Much That Forbes Noticed
We’re thrilled to be vetted by Forbes in The Best Dry Dog Foods, According to Holistic Veterinarians for two of our products this year! Our best-selling Super Beef Patties were named Best Freeze-Dried Dog Food, and our Wild Red Raw-Coated Kibble was named Best Raw-Coated Dry Dog Food.
You Had These Instagram Reels on Repeat
You loved our reels on Instagram, but none quite so much as these! Vitothedogfather‘s take on how we feed our pets better than we feed ourselves was super relatable, while our silent fireworks show reel showed pet parents how to share the 4th of July with their pets.
