Secaucus, NJ – Freshpet announces the Fresh Fit Challenge 2015 where three deserving dogs will be chosen to follow a diet and exercise regimen over the course of six months to help them get in great shape for a healthier and happier life.

Freshpet is teaming up with Dr. Katy Nelson, veterinarian and host of the The Pet Show with Dr. Katy on ABC7 in Washington, D.C., Kevin Gilliam, professional dog trainer and owner of Frolick Dogs, a new canine sports club for pets, and Belle Haven Animal Medical Center, to host the Fresh Fit Challenge 2015. Led by Dr. Katy, three dogs will be selected to make the switch to a fresh food diet, follow an appropriate fitness training program, and attend regular wellness check ups to help them lose the extra weight and get in shape. Each month you can follow along and watch their progress on The Pet Show with Dr. Katy Nelson’s TV show and Facebook page and on the Freshpet blog. The Fresh Fit Challenge 2015 will conclude with a big reveal in July.

“I consistently see patients whose health issues could have been avoided if they were at the proper weight,” says Dr. Katy Nelson. “Many life-threatening diseases are caused by obesity and may be prevented with the right combination of fresh food and exercise. We hope the Fresh Fit Challenge brings awareness to this fact and inspires other pet parents to change their pets’ health habits in 2015.”

If you would like your dog to be considered for the Fresh Fit Challenge 2015, simply upload a video explaining why your pup needs to lose weight to The Pet Show with Dr. Katy Nelson’s Facebook page by January 31, 2015. Please note you must live in the Washington D.C. metro area and be available to attend Frolick Dogs gym weekly and appear with your dog on The Pet Show with Dr. Katy Nelson.

"We are happy to be providing all Fresh Fit Challenge participants with free Freshpet food to help them reach their optimal weight,” says Katie Tyson, Digital Marketing Manager at Freshpet. “Freshpet is not a diet food, however, just like for humans, if you eat the right amount of lean meats and fresh fruits and veggies you will simply feel better, have more energy and maintain a healthy weight.”
