Frequently Asked Questions
Of course we would love to see all dogs and cats get better nutrition, but even if you only treat your pet with an occasional Eeppe’s home-cooked meal, it is still better than depriving your pet of ever experiencing real food. Give Eeppe’s home-cooked meal a try and see how your pet likes it.
We recommend using up Eeppe’s home-cooked food in less than 6 months, although the food should stay unaffected if frozen for up to 12 months. Once defrosted, store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
For gradual thawing, it is best to put the frozen food into the fridge overnight. However, if you’re in a hurry, we suggest placing the entire package of food into a bowl under running cold water for a quicker thaw.
After the food has been properly thawed, if you’d like you can warm up the food to room temperature. Please, never cook the food again.Your pets can eat the food just as well cold, but by slightly warming it up, all the yummy aromas will be released making the meal that much more appetizing for your pet.
We do not add any preservatives at all. The only preservation method that we use is freezing.
Not all carbohydrates are the same. There are definitely good and bad carbohydrates. At Eeppe, we use specific carbohydrate-rich ingredients that supply the animal with substantial nutritional benefits. Not only can carbohydrates be a superb source of energy given that they come from fresh food ingredients, they also introduce large quantities of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber into the diet.
There are many philosophies when it comes to dog nutrition and cat nutrition. Some people advocate feeding raw, while others swear by kibble. Eeppe’s goal is not to change anyone’s mind but to offer an alternative. We believe that our middle-ground approach of gently cooking our food reduces the risks associated with the two extremes of either feeding raw or overly processed commercial foods. It is a fact that not all animals are able to tolerate raw diets and many animals fed commercial diets develop food intolerances due to numerous, unnecessary additives. Not to mention the possibility of introducing pathogens into the household by way of handling and feedings raw meat diets. By gently cooking our food, we find that it improves digestion, allows for increased absorption of nutrients, and is gentler on the sensitive gastrointestinal tracts of dogs and cats. Without the many fillers, preservatives, and chemicals in Eeppe’s recipes, your pet will have a better chance of maintaining good health for many years to come.
