Do you ever wonder if you are feeding your dog a healthy dog food? While I have had dogs for years, I never stop researching and trying to find that perfect food. Even though I wasn’t unhappy with our current food, I have been intrigued reading so much lately about a fresh dog food diet. With how much our girls love and dream of human food, the thought of feeding them fresh food made with all natural ingredients sounded truly perfect. The only catch was I had no clue where to start, how much they needed a day, or how to even make sure they were getting enough. I mean, our girls would beg all day when I cook, so I assumed they would be the same with any homemade dog food. At BlogPaws 2017 at Myrtle Beach, everything changed when I learned about a fresh dog food delivery service – NomNomNow.
After reading quite a bit about the food and how it was made from all natural, human grade ingredients, I was sold. As a matter of fact, we were so impressed with NomNomNow we decided to take the month of August and give this fresh dog food delivery service a try. It has been a fun adventure through the month of August, and we can’t wait to give your our honest NomNomNow review and tell you what we think of this fresh dog food delivery service!
Who Is NomNomNow Again?
If you haven’t been following us for the past month, you might be wondering: what is NomNomNow? NomNomNow is a fresh dog food delivery service that delivers gently cooked dog food right to your door, using only all natural, human grade ingredients. As well, each of their recipes are veterinarian formulated and certified by their own Dr Justin Schmalberg (one of the top pet-nutritionists in the United States). Personally, we think it is a perfect choice for anyone who wants homemade, “real” food for their dog, but doesn’t have the time or expert knowledge to create balanced, healthy food for their pup.
At NomNomNow, they understand that dogs aren’t just family members, but deserve (and often expect) to be treated the same as family when it comes to their food. This is why each of their fresh dog food recipes is prepared in a human-grade kitchen 100% owned and controlled by NomNomNow in the San Francisco Bay Area. You never have to worry about anything outsourced with their food, since they control everything in the process of making it. As a matter of fact, their kitchen is 100% designed and dedicated to making fresh dog food in a kitchen that meets all FDA and USDA standards! Each ingredient is also inspected upon arrival to make sure it meets NomNomNow’s strict standards before it is prepared, portioned, and packaged by hand to be enjoyed happy doggy customers. Their food is never frozen before reaching your door, meaning that the food you get is truly fresh on arrival. Best of all, their recipes are made using only a handful of ingredients, including:
- Healthy Oils
- Vitamin/Nutrient Blend
While that is all well and good, they know there is only one thing that are our dogs care about – the food! It doesn’t matter how great it sounds to pet parents, if the food doesn’t taste amazing and seem like their human’s food, it isn’t interesting, right? Right now, NomNomNow offers 5 delicious recipes and 1 flavor of treats that they are certain will appease even the pickiest of doggy palates. As well, each of these recipes made using no additives, no artificial ingredients, and only the best, human-grade, restaurant-quality ingredients all from the USA. All their food is human grade and all natural, even the vitamins! In other words, your dogs will think they are getting human food with each bite, making breakfast and dinner an amazing experience for everyone in your family. We also highly recommend reading how it works to learn more about NomNomNow and why it is a great choice for any doggy family!
NomNomNow: Our Thoughts
Want to know what we think after trying NomNomNow for the past month? Honestly, I have to say it has been a wonderful experience for us and the girls. To talk about our full experience for anyone who hasn’t been following along – lets first start with the delivery process. NomNomNow is fantastic with their communication, giving you instructions on what to expect and prepare for the delivery before it even arrives. They even sent me reminder emails of the day it was arriving, to let me know how long it could last on the porch in case I wasn’t home.
Once it did arrive, everything was nicely packed, chilled but not quite frozen, and ready for sorting and storing. Also, do know that if you live in the 9 western states, it will be a bit different for you, since they send meals out weekly for pups who live in those states. Since I am not, we were part of their beta program which sent a month’s worth of food to the girls. For a look at what to expect during delivery, make sure to take a look at our unboxing video below!
What is probably the most delightful thing to us about NomNomNow, however, is the excitement. As you guys saw from my previous NomNomNow post, Ivi is a bit of a picky eater. She loves just about any food for the first week or so, but gets tired of kibble quickly. Unless we try mixing in cheese or toppers, by the time she reaches the end of any dry food bag, she will try avoiding her food – or trick the puppy into eating her food in hopes of something better. During the whole month we tried NomNomNow, mealtime has been pure excitement and joy from both of our girls. Even seeing the packages will have the girls jumping for joy or running to their food dish; or one of my new favorite developments, bringing their dish to us in hopes for more. The one thing Ivi didn’t do with NomNomNow was get tired of the food, which was a major plus for us since fresh dog food has a variety of amazing health benefits for dogs. Seeing our girls happy to eat their food and beg for it like human food couldn’t help but make both my husband and me smile. While remembering to thaw their food was sometimes a challenge, it was worth it with the pure joy it brought both of our girls. Remember, thawing is only a concern for those who get a month’s worth of food delivered at once.
So, what benefits have we seen from feeding a fresh dog food diet to our malamutes? Probably the biggest one is more energy than they know what to do with on a daily basis. As dogs that are known to be a working breed, we are used to having lots of energy. While we thought they were energetic before, with NomNomNow they are always bouncy and happy. There were far fewer naptimes and much more play, with them constantly bouncing, running, and roughhousing more with their toys and each other. While we were outside less for them to do ‘business’ we were making more playtime trips to run the energy out, which was something amazing to us since they seemed to be eating less. To me, this seemed to prove they were getting more nutrients from their fresh food, allowing them to be healthier and happier.
Overall, I am extremely happy with NomNomNow and can easily say it has changed how I look at dog food. With the pure excitement and joy it brings our girls, I can easily count it in my top three favorite dog foods that I would recommend to any dog owner. With the amazing all-natural ingredients and variety of recipes, it is perfect for any dog!
