A few months ago we switched our 8 year old lab to fresh pet dog food. What a difference. She ate dry Iams before and was starting to get itchy scabby spots. Now that is all cleared up and he’s coat Is shiny and she is no longer plump. Lol

Anyway, when we leave in our motorhome for a couple months I’m thinking it may not be easy to keep enough of that fresh dog food in the refrigerator. Is there a canned food that would be kind of equivalent to the Fresh pet?

I'd look at the first five or six ingredients in the Fresh Pet and then look for a canned food that has close to the same ingredients, especially the primary protein and carb sources. That's no guarantee, of course. But it's how I'd approach the search.

Couldn't you find Fresh Pet retailers along the way?

Fresh Pet has been in very short supply throughout the pandemic. For a little while I thought it was getting better, but it seems to be regressing now. I know all the stores in my area to check, but I wouldn't want to have to hunt it constantly in strange territory.

Pet nutrition has advanced rapidly in the last 10 years. We feed a lot of chicken, some vegetables, and some quality kibble underneath. My last Border Collie could still run at 16 when she passed. We lost our Corgi at 17 1/2. Food matters when it comes to dogs.

Fresh Pet can be frozen with the only change being the color of the product. No nutritional loss.
(as per website).
