Freeze-Dried Vs Dehydrated
This food is a freeze-dried from Raw food, and is extremely high in protein. You can break this down into almost a powder form and sprinkle it on top of your dogs normal food or you can feed them only Stella & Chewys. Unlike with the Dehydrated food you don’t have to add water or change the composition in any way before serving it to your pets.
Keep in mind that this type of food is extremely high in protein, and to make sure and not overfeed your animals. a normal kibble food is about 25% Protein, and Stella & Chewys is closer to 55%!! That’s almost more than double the protein! This is great for really active dogs, and for use when your hiking or camping when your pet would need a good boost. If your pet mostly stays inside or is not very active then i don’t recommend using this food by itself. Your pet could gain weight really fast, which could be good or bad depending on your situation. When rescuing an animal this food is great because it can get them lots of nutrients quickly, and the taste is great!
One of the most beneficial aspects of this food is the shelf life. while most kibble is about 6-8 months before it goes bad, and wet food is much less time than that, Freeze-Dried is over a year!! Dehydrated lasts a long time as-well but not quite as long as Freeze-Dried. This is awesome for your Pet Long Term Storage, think about it like human freeze-dried food. it takes up a lot less space, very high in nutrients and is pretty tasty. You can mix and match, a little Freeze-dried mixed with kibble or even dehydrated food and you’ve got a balanced tasty meal!
I took a Biscuit and split it into 4 pieces and let my dogs try it as a treat. they gobbled it up and wanted more! Again this food is really high in protein so keep that in mind if you switch to this as your primary food, or as a primary treat. For me personally i use this for about 30% of my Long Term Pet Food Storage, and as an occasional treat. This is a great company and they are expanding to more flavors/products and im very excited (My Pets are Also!!) about trying all the different products.
So get a little bag and try it as a treat first, remember to Store What your Pet Eats and they’ll eat what you Store for Them!! They also make a frozen kind, I haven’t tried that yet, but for Long Terms storage I don’t think it would be as good as the Freeze-Dried for Longevity.
