I am so happy that I found Fresh Is Best! I have always tried to feed my animals natural foods (raw meat, veggies, etc) and have been unsuccessful in finding a pre-mixed product that just “did it for me” (or the animals of course) until now... Read more


I have to tell you that your raw food has made an incredible difference in my dog's life. Lucy is my 7 year old best friend and has had seasonal skin allergies on her back the last 4 years. It was heartbreaking to watch Lucy try and itch her back and roll in the grass for any relief every chance she got and she was always wanting me to itch her back. I could tell she was miserable and it broke my heart... Read more


I had to write to tell you what an incredible difference your food has made on the health of my in-door cat Carmel. I used Science Diet Light for the first 8 years of his life and found that he would gain huge amounts of weight on the “light” version of their food. I then tried other varieties of kibble and just couldn’t believe the amount of waste that he was creating along with the odor and loose stools that came along with it! As a result, something had to change... Read more

Thank you for your healthy nutritious cat food. My 11 year old feline companion, Bruno, was recently diagnosed with Diabetes. It was so bad he could hardly walk.

We gradually switched our Golden Retriever, Lucy, from a mid-range puppy kibble to 2/3 Fresh Is Best and 1/3 high grade kibble when we brought her home at 3 months. Her hair went from wiry to sleek and silky in a month. At 3 years young, she continues this Fresh Is Best/kibble diet and... Read more


When we adopted our Chihuahua puppy (Macy) we intended to litter box train her - couldn't see putting a little dog out in the winter. After talking with Stacy and doing some research on the raw meat diet, we were sold on Fresh Is Best. Her stools are consistently firm and compact. Most importantly, they have very little odor. Macy is a very happy, sleekly built Chihuahua with lots of energy and a shiny coat. I have recommended Fresh Is Best to all my friends with dogs. It just makes sense; it is how they would eat naturally. Read more

Dogtor J.

I was very pleased to find your site and products recently. We are on the same mission...trying to feed our pets (and owners too, in my case) biologically appropriate foods that do no harm. I have been doing Internet consultation through my Website for the past 5 years following my personal diagnosis of celiac disease, the study of which changed my entire life. I write about this extensively on my site. Since that time, I have been taking ALL of my patients off of gluten (wheat, barley, rye), casein (dairy products), soy, and corn and watching the miracles occur. I have dedicated my life to this mission, continuing to write on human and veterinary forums and doing my Internet consultations. Read more


Hi, I stopped at your table last Saturday at the Greyhound Gala in Waukesha and spoke to you about my sweet greyhound who has earned the nickname "Gassy Sassy". You recommended we try digestive enzymes and gave me some reading material. The reading material suggested it would take about 2 weeks to become fully effective, and that may be true, but I wanted to let you know that last Saturday evening we put some Total-zymes in Sassy's supper and...

My name is Michelle and I have a 6 year old Miniature Pinscher named Cinder. She was diagnosed with a Mast Cell Tumor in early May 2002. The tumor was removed successfully. I was told by my vet that I needed to put her on a steroid pills for the rest of her life. I did not do it. After doing some research I found out that cancer thrives on carbohydrates and by putting Cinder on a protein diet the chances of her getting the cancer again would be lessend. I was told that cancer can't live off protein. It was a big decision but I changed her diet completely no more dog food or donuts off the table.. Read more


Harmonee is our 14 year old Bedlington Terrier. Prior to switching to Fresh Is Best, Harmonee was plagued for the past several years with skin reactive food/grass allergies and reoccurring candida infections in her right ear. She has been eating the Fresh Is Best raw food diet exclusively now for a few months. The first thing that happened... Read more
