Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food! My dog LOVES it and her digestion has improved tremendously! I wanted to comment on the other two reviews, especially the one star review, it clearly says in the very short and simple instructions: USE WITHIN 7 DAYS. Its fresh, real food that has very few preservatives in it so of course it is not going to be good in 2 weeks! You wouldn't (shouldn't) eat leftovers that are two weeks old, yuck. And, it also says do not freeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy for Fresh Pet I have had a daily struggle for 9 years with my dog in the food war!! I have tried "every" expensive dog food both can and dry on the market, so I tried this food 2 months ago. OMG!!! My dog goes crazy for this food. He sits at his bowl waiting for this food and inhales it like he is starving, which he has NEVER done. I went from a dog who would barely eat every day to a dog who begs for this food regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They love it!! My two love this! It's the only food they will always eat, no matter what! I have tried several other brands and they like it at first, but after a while they don't want it. I've been giving them Vital for 3 months now and they wait with baited breath for me to put their bowls down. I know it says not to freeze, but I've done it and it was still fresh when it thawed. Now, I froze the entire log not portions, because I bought multiple at once.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It should not go bad as fast as it does I've been very happy with this, up until it goes bad, even in my refridge. Its about two weeks and half of it I have to throw out.

Can it be frozen and thawed as needed..?

Asked by: Little dog
Yes. I buy a bigger roll, because it's more cost effective. I cut it up into weekly portions, bag up each portion, and freeze it for the month. I pull out one week's portion at a time.

I need this in smaller amounts as I was in my Nags Head Store yesterday and had to purchase a 6lb tube that I had to throw away because it only keeps for 1 week once opened. Will my store order 1 lb tubes for me?

Asked by: Tinaobx1
I would recommend that you order smaller tubes. I have seen the suggestions posted here about freezing, but after it is frozen and thawed, the consistency and smell are less desirable.
