Making Mealtime Healthier for the Pugs with Freshpet

***Special thanks to Freshpet for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

This year, my family has been trying to incorporate more fresh, whole foods into our everyday. For starters, David and I recently adopted a plant-based lifestyle. Of course, we also want to make mealtime healthier for our pug babies! It’d be ideal to feed them all-natural foods without putting in extra time each day on meal prep.

After trying multiple dog food brands, Freshpet stuck out to us because their brand is very in line with our ideology of whole foods with no preservatives. Often, dog food brands take shortcuts like including fillers or processed “meat powder” in their products.

Freshpet distinguishes itself with quality food made of whole ingredients, gently steam-cooked to lock in vital nutrients for optimal pet health and boundless energy.

Feeding S’mores and Rolly fresh food is important especially as they get older. S’mores is entering his senior years, and we want to make the transition as easy as possible for him. Though Rolly will always be a puppy to us, he’s turning 3 this year already! Time flies.

Diet plays a substantial role in overall health. Just like how we should be conscious of what we put into our bodies, the same concept should apply to our pets.

With Freshpet, I know I’m nourishing my pugs with balanced meals of fruits, veggies, and a quality protein source.

The best part? There’s no meal prep involved! Everything is already cooked, pre-packaged, and sits in the refrigerator until mealtime.

Freshpet also takes the guesswork out of serving size by providing clear feeding guidelines in the back of the package. Our pugs are in the 21-35 lbs range, so Freshpet recommends we feed 2 1/4 – 3 1/4 cups each day. Of course, these are general quantities and should be adjusted accordingly depending on your dog’s age, activity level, and condition.

Finally, I love that there’s no need to do any mixing when feeding Freshpet. All I have to do is scoop out the recommended servings into their food dishes and watch them chow away happily.

Not only have we been thrilled with Freshpet, but we’ve also noticed the boys finding mealtime to be the highlight of their days since the transition. In the morning when I say, “Is it Freshpet time?!” — the boys yelp in excitement, rushing me to feed them!

Living just minutes away from a store, we appreciate that Freshpet is so easily accessible to us. Giving S’mores and Rolly the very best has never been easier and more nutritious!

  1. So glad to see you back on here! Your pugs are the cutest. Glad they are enjoying Freshpet dog food. I adopted a frenchie earlier this year and curious to see if he’ll like it too!

    1. Thanks Denise! I’m also curious to know whether your frenchie will enjoy Freshpet. I’m sure he will 🙂 Love frenchies myself! They are so adorable xx

  2. It certainly looks like they love it. I think it’s great that they can have food that is so tasty to them and so good for them at the same time.

  3. That looks SO healthy for them. It’s such a great option to have REAL food for our pets instead of stuff filled with corn meal. Great choice!

  4. I do some personal shopping as a side gig and have a client who swears by Fresh Pet. It is rare to look at dog food and think, “this actually looks like something I could eat”. I’ve been feeding my dogs the same food for so many years I get weary of switching them off of it but perhaps it’s time to switch to Fresh Pet.

    1. Yesss! So glad we made the switch. I can really tell my dogs look forward to meal time even more than they used to, and it makes me feel better knowing they are eating real food that’s nutritious for them.

  5. It is really important what we feed our pets. So many pet foods on the market are not only not good for our pets, but actually harmful to their health! Thank you for some great information.

    1. I know, it’s astonishing to find out how a lot of the pet food on the market can be harmful to our pets’ health. Glad I finally found a dog food brand that I can trust to be good for my pugs!

    1. Haha yes! My black pug is extra picky with food and used to struggle eating kibble. Since making the switch, he gobbles up his food and I don’t have to beg him to eat lol

  6. This is a great way to ensure that your pet is getting the nutrition that it needs! Our pets rely on us to keep them safe and provide for them the best way that we can – their nutrition is one of the key areas where we can do that. Thank you for sharing!

  7. I don’t have a pug but they are my husband’s favourite! We ended up getting a German Shepherd. Your little pups are adorable and they really seem to be enjoying the food!

  8. That is a great feeding option. I go for manufactured dog products to ensure my pets get all the nutrition they needed, I can’t possibly control it that good for them. looks like a great product!

  9. The food looks and sounds really healthy. Your dogs are so cute and it looks like they are really enjoying their mealtimes!
