Just Food For Dogs Reviews: Pantry Fresh

PantryFresh brings together all of the benefits of fresh, preservative-free dog food with the convenience of being pre-cooked and shelf-stable.

These meals can be stored safely for up to two years in your pantry, require no cooking or prep time, and only need to be refrigerated after opening if you don’t use the whole container. Just Food For Dogs says that “PantryFresh is a great way to kick the kibble and canned food and get your favorite pooch started on fresh, whole-food goodness.”  And we agree!

PantryFresh is made from 100% human-edible, high-quality ingredients including fresh meat and produce with no growth hormones ever.  No preservatives are added, instead, Just Food For Dogs uses industry-leading cooking and packaging processes to lock in freshness, maintain nutritional value and taste, and prevent spoilage.  PantryFresh comes in four recipes: Chicken and White Rice, Beef and Russet Potato, Turkey and Whole Wheat Macaroni, and Lamb and Brown Rice.

We love that PantryFresh dog food is shelf-stable as storage is one of our biggest complaints with other raw and fresh food that we’ve tried.  Most have to be stored in the refrigerator and/or freezer taking up valuable space.  For our 100 lb dog, we would need to store a lot of food every week and don’t have room in our freezer for it all.  In addition, this shelf-stable food is great for traveling with your pup and makes feeding while boarding a breeze with no need to switch to kibble.

To get started on PantryFresh, Just Food For Dogs recommends following the transition guidelines below

Transitioning to Fresh Dog Food from Kibble

Taking time to transition your pup off of his/her current kibble or canned food and onto a fresh, whole food diet is really important.  This helps your pup’s stomach and body adjust to the new food and helps to avoid upset stomach and loose stool.  Transition timing generally takes 5-10 days and depends on your dog.

Adult dogs should follow the transition guide below

    • DAYS 1-3: Replace 25% of your dog’s current food with JustFoodForDogs whole food
    • DAYS 4-7: Replace 50% of your dog’s current food with JustFoodForDogs whole food
    • DAYS 8-10:  Replace 75% of your dog’s current food with JustFoodForDogs whole food
    • DAY 11: 100% JustFoodForDogs

Once your dog has adjusted to Just Food For Dogs, in 1-2 months, you could see the following changes including more energy, less odor, and more compact stool.

Just Food For Dogs Reviews: Pumpkin Treats

just-food-for-dogs-reviews-pumpkin-treats2

We tried the Pumpkin Treats.  These treats, like the others, are made with whole food ingredients.  The pumpkin treats do not contain any animal protein and are therefore a low-protein treat ideal for all dogs.  They are also hypoallergenic if you have a dog that is extra sensitive.

Ingredients include Whole Wheat Flour, Pumpkin Purée, Blackstrap Molasses, Safflower Oil, and Cinnamon.

Our Daisy LOVES these treats.  Every time I got out the bag she could bump it with her nose like she was trying to tell me “Hurry up, open it already!”. Not only are these treats healthy, with just 5 human-edible ingredients, but they also have a great crunch, and smell wonderful.

At $8.95 for a 5oz bag, these treats are around the same price as similar high-quality pumpkin dog treats.  They are a bit expensive to use exclusively for our large breed dog, but they are a great addition to our treat jar as an extra special snack. Get 20% OFF My First Order >>

Just Food For Dogs Reviews: Bottom Line

just-food-for-dogs-daisy2

Just Food Food Dogs deliveries healthy, nutritionally balanced, fresh meals and treats for dogs directly to your door.  Meals are developed by a team of veterinarians and specialists to improve the length and quality of life of your pet and do not include misleading labels, dangerous chemical preservatives, or disgusting “ingredients”.

We love that PantryFresh dog food is shelf-stable, that it’s made with 100% human-edible whole food ingredients, and free from preservatives and growth hormones.  Our Daisy loved all 4 recipes and couldn’t wait to dig into her new food at every meal.  In addition to loving this food, Daisy tolerated the addition of PantryFresh to her normal kibble with no upset stomach during our trial period.  And while we haven’t been feeding PantryFresh very long, we did notice a difference in stool size and consistency, smaller and more compact, which is a good sign and always welcome when you are picking up after a 100lb dog 🙂

Compared to other premium fresh dog food that we’ve reviewed, Just Food For Dogs PantryFresh is more convenient as it is shelf-stable, can be stored in the pantry, and makes traveling with your dog or boarding your dog while you are away a breeze.  We love that the PantryFresh dog food does not have to be refrigerated.

We found that when comparing PantryFresh ingredients with other premium dog food that the quality was similar which is great to see.  Where PantryFresh falls short is the price.  Compared to other premium fresh dog food, PantryFresh is at the top end of the price range.  This could be an issue if you have a large dog like we do or several dogs to feed, or are on a budget.  If you still want the convenience and health benefits of Just Food For Dogs PantryFresh along with the high-quality ingredients, but with a lower cost, we recommend subscribing to Autoship to save 35% on your first delivery and 5% on all future deliveries and/or using PantryFresh as a topper or feed 50%. Get 20% OFF My First Order >>

For us, feeding 100% PantryFresh is not in our budget for our large-breed dog, but we would be happy to add Just Food For Dogs as a meal topper to Daisy’s regular kibble to give her some of the benefits of this fresh food at a fraction of the cost.

The Pumpkin Treats were also a big hit with Daisy.  With only 5 ingredients, these treats were a healthy snack that Daisy was really excited to eat after her morning walk.  We love that all of the Just Food For Dogs treats are free from preservatives, additives, byproducts, artificial coloring, and growth hormones.  These treats are in line with other natural pumpkin treats that we have seen or slightly more expensive and something that we would buy as a special snack for our girl.

We recommend Just Food For Dogs PantryFresh food to anyone looking for convenient, shelf-stable, and healthy fresh dog food free from preservatives.  If you travel a lot with your dog or board your dog often and want to continue to feed fresh dog food, PantryFresh will make your life so much easier.  Shop now >>
