Every member of the Pet Wants team cares about making truly healthy and fresh food for pets. In addition to creating quality food that you can feel great about feeding to your pets, we love teaching and engaging with other pet parents. It’s true that the more you know about what your pet needs, the better you can provide for it.

So in that spirit, we want to discuss freshness. If you’ve ever gone to a store and looked at a bag of pet food, you likely saw an expiration date on it. Although that date is designed to provide peace of mind, it doesn’t tell the whole story.

Why Pet Food That’s Not Fresh is a Problem

Even if food from a big brand pet company looks fine, there are two big issues with it sitting around for a long time. The first is decreased nutritional quality. The longer food is sitting in a bag, the less nutritional value it’s going to provide when a pet eats it. The other problem is food produced by large companies needs to remain shelf stable for months on end so it is generally pumped full of artificial preservatives.

How to Ensure Your Pet Gets Fresh Food

Fresh pet food has a long list of benefits including increased energy and improved digestion. Fresh food makes it easier for pets of all ages to maintain a healthy weight by providing food that is nutrient dense. Two other benefits of fresh pet food are providing higher levels of crucial vitamins and supporting optimal coat and skin health.

If you want to know that your pet is getting fresh food and all the benefits that go along with it, Pet Wants is the brand for you. We make all of our blends in small batches each month.
