FREEZE-DRIED: Freeze-dried food is fresh or cooked foods that have been frozen then had the water removed. The result is a light-weight, fresh appearing and tasting preserved food that can be rehydrated with a minimum amount of water.
The process involves freezing a fresh food (fruit, dairy, vegetable, cooked meat or fish) in a special freeze-drying chamber, then removing the water by quickly changing the chamber’s pressure and temperature. This causes the water in the food to change from a solid to a gas without ever changing back into a liquid. This “quick change” preserves the cell structure of the food without compromising vitamins, nutrients, color or aroma.

How much food do I feed my dog/cat?
All of our recommended feeding guidelines are listed on the food bags themselves and on our website. Each recipe is different and based on the daily calorie requirement for each dog’s age, weight and activity level. The daily amounts listed can be divided into multiple feedings throughout the day.
How long does a bag of food last?
Each recipe has a different calorie content and each dog has different food requirements but to give an example, a 10# bag of our ARTISAN Chicken Dog Food will last a 30# dog almost one month.
