I have quite a few good pet food stores around me so I’m hoping I can find some brand that doesn’t use this high pressure process everyone seems to be against. I have been having good results with Stella and Chewy but now that I know to avoid HPP, what brands don’t use this process?
Thanks for any advice. My girl is turning 14 this month! She is pickier than ever when it comes to dinner time.

Supporters of HPP claim the process leads to…
A safer product. It’s been shown that the HPP process is effective at eliminating most food-borne germs such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria with little change in the nutritional value of the end product.2
A fresher product. HPP destroys the microorganisms that cause spoilage which, in turn, increases the shelf life of the product.2
Sometimes only the poultry recipes use HPP and other non-poultry recipes won’t. You’d need to look through the FAQ’s on the product’s website or contact them directly.
