Our best before dates for our superfoods range from 18 months to 36 months, it depends on the actual superfood. And, our cookies have a 10 month window. The great thing about our superfoods and cookies is that they actually only lose potency and flavour after the pass their best before date, hence "BEST BEFORE".

Occasionally we offer Free Shipping to pet parents if they reach a minimum sub-total. This is a standard well known practice to offer free shipping based on your sub-total. Sub-total is before taxes and discounts. This means, if you use a discount code, it might drop your sub-total below the free shipping threshold. And, depending on where you live, your sales taxes are calculated at different percentages, so Free Shipping is based on your sub-total.

There is one which we don't recommend at all and that is Organic Slippery Elm Bark powder. You won't be able to make a paste with it after it is frozen. It is a good idea for you to save time in portioning out superfoods and to have them available at any moment. However, like all food, superfoods will loose some levels of potency once frozen, but not enough to that you will notice a difference. Instead of freezing, we suggest you mix your chosen superfood with Organic Coconut Oil and let it set in your refrigerator, They will retain their shape in the refrigerator without having to freeze them.
Congratulations! Puppies! We always suggest you start with a puppy (growing dog) appropriate food. Puppies need proper nutrition for their breed and rate of growth. You can talk to your veterinarian or breeder to find out which food is best for your puppy. We always suggest you keep a jar of Organic Slippery Elm Bark on hand in case of any gastric distress (diarrhea) and you can quickly make your puppy feel better. And, if you are inclined you can always add sparingly to their bowl these superfoods: Berry Blast, Veggie Boost, Goat Milk Plus, Organic Wheatgrass.
