Fresh Food For Pets

Best Fresh Dog Food

Fresh dog foods are vet-designed, super-healthy meals that are custom-made for your dog’s age, weight, breed, activity level and allergies… and then delivered refrigerated… direct to your door.

To get started, you’ll answer a few questions about your dog to create a custom feeding profile.

Next, you’ll set up a delivery schedule. And soon, fresh-made pet food arrives at your home, packed in dry ice.

What Makes Them Superior
to Other Dog Foods?

Compared to other pet diets…

Fresh dog foods are gently cooked at lower temperatures. So, they avoid the damage to delicate vitamins and nutrients during processing.

And unlike dry kibble, which contains just 10% water…

Fresh dog foods have a natural moisture content of about 75%… more like the healthy human food found in your home refrigerator.

Even better… most are designed by board-certified veterinary nutritionists.

Sample buyer review… “I got Bella when she was 8 weeks old she never wanted regular dog food. She was such a picky eater and she loves varieties, so I started cooking for her but was always afraid she’s not getting the nutrients her little body needs. I came across Ollie and saw it was homemade food with all the nutrients and a variety of different menus. I decided to try it and she loves it. It was a blessing for me also in that it saved me a lot of time and stress in deciding what I should cook for her.”

Fresh dog food recipes

It’s a fact, feeding your pup a diet of 100%  human grade dog food is easy, cost effective, and WAY better for them than a traditional doggie diet of processed kibble! My easy homemade dog food recipe combines lean ground sirloin, wholesome brown rice, fresh vegetables, hard boiled eggs, and tender herbs for a healthy, vibrant alternative to traditional dog food that has given our 11 year old dog a new lease on life!  

**It is important to note that dog’s can have food allergies too!!! The top 5 (in order) foods that dogs can be allergic to are beef, dairy, wheat, chicken, & egg. If you notice your dog having any issues after ingesting these ingredients you should contact your veterinarian.***

Meat || Lean ground beef, ground chicken, ground white or dark meat turkey, & ground pork are all great options. Just be sure to make sure that any meat you feed your animals is free of seasonings when purchasing! Dog’s living with a kidney disease diagnosis need meals that are lower in phosphorus – so for us a lean ground beef like ground sirloin is best the way to go! 

Grains || Brown rice has all of the fiber from the hull of the rice grain still intact and it’s easily digestible, which makes it a great ingredient for homemade dog food! If you are limiting phosphorus in your dog’s food due to kidney disease you can use white rice instead. Other grains like oats, quinoa, and even whole grain pasta are also easily digestible options. Gluten grains can be included in a dog’s diet too, however it is important to note that gluten is one of the top 5 dog allergens. In our personal experience with Hooch over the years, gluten has been a real problem that causes him extreme gastrointestinal discomfort, so we avoid it. 

Eggs || Eggs are one of the top 5 allergens for dogs and the yolks are very high in phosphorus -which you want to limit in dog’s with kidney disease. But, eggs are also one of the highest quality forms of protein you can feed your pet! Ultimately, a hard-boiled egg is Hooch’s favorite thing on the planet so, with our vet’s approval, we opted to leave them in his food. 

Vegetables || My dogs both really LOVE fresh shredded carrots and fennel, so if I have either of those on hand I use them, but there are LOADS of other great dog-friendly veggies too! Frozen veggie blends that contain peas, corn, carrots, and green beans are a wonderful choice that our dogs love! Cooked sweet potatoes are a great addition to bulk up their meals too, just never feed your dog raw sweet potato as it can cause serious blockages! Canned 100% pumpkin, not pumpkin pie fillingis another great addition to your dog’s daily meal. A tablespoon or two mixed in at each feeding really ups their fiber intake and can work wonders for your dog’s digestive system!  

Herbs || Lots of fresh and dried herbs are great for dogs! The curly, not flat-leaf, variety of parsley is great for preventative kidney health. It’s cleansing for the organs (which will help prevent disease). However, for a dog with an actual kidney disease diagnosis, you may want to limit their intake of parsley altogether. Herbs like cilantro, thyme, or basil are delicious options for your pup that are loaded with health benefits too!

Oil || You will want to drizzle a few tablespoons of oil that is high in Omega 3’s into each batch of dog food you make. I usually just stick with olive oil or safflower oil because I typically have them on hand and they are affordable. There are great Omega oil blends available on the market too that contain Omega’s 3,6, & 9 but they tend to be a bit pricier. 

Hydration is VERY important for dog’s with kidney disease.

Dog’s with kidney disease are in need of hydrating fluids wherever they can get them! The benefit of feeding food that is saturated instead of dry is that the kidneys won’t have to work as hard to perform their normal function in the body.

There are lots of ways to add more liquid to your pup’s meals. Obviously, a bit of water mixed in is one option, but we prefer hydrating with a liquid that adds nutritional value as well.

5 Fresh Dog Food Delivery Options That Will Have Your Pup Eating Like Royalty

Your dog is part of your family. And like any other family member, you want to make sure he’s getting healthy dog food. Lately, there’s been increased interest in fresh dog food—“human-grade” food that’s prepared to order and includes high-quality meats, vegetables, grains and fruits, but no preservatives or artificial additives. But is fresh dog food better for your pup? It depends on who you ask.

Fresh Dog Food: PetPlate
Here are five fresh dog food delivery services that offer fresher, potentially more healthful … [+] PETPLATE

According to Dr. Justin Shmalberg, DVM, clinical associate professor at the University of Florida, cofounder of Integrative Veterinary Innovations and Chief Nutrition Officer at NomNomNow, fresh diets have a variety of health and nutrition benefits. They’re usually free of preservatives and fillers and have additional nutrients that support your dog’s health and coat. He says that “feeding our pets well is the best strategy for preventing chronic diseases,” and we should include at least some fresh food in our dog’s diet.

There are some downsides though. For one, fresh dog food is often more costly and harder to store than kibble—refrigerated foods have a shelf life of less than a week. On the other hand, dry dog food helps remove plaque and tartar from your dog’s teeth and the texture encourages your dog to chew before swallowing. But it’s often filled with preservatives and other ingredients that you might not feel good about giving your pup. So it’s really a matter of personal preference and what’s best for your dog’s individual needs.

No matter which kind of dog food you go with, Ruairi White, DVM, MPH, an associate veterinarian at Norwichtown Veterinary Hospital in Norwich, CT, says that it’s important that it’s been evaluated and found nutritionally adequate by The Association of the American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO)—a non-profit organization of local, state and federal agencies that make recommendations for pet food.

Of course, it’s always a good idea to discuss any dietary changes with your veterinarian first. But if you get the green light, here are five of our favorite fresh dog food companies to choose from. All prices listed are for a 60-pound mixed breed that likes to lounge around all day, so your cost may go up or down depending on your dog’s size and activity level.

The Farmer’s Dog

Fresh dog food: The Farmer's Dog
THE FARMER’S DOG

The Farmer’s Dog Fresh Dog Food

The Farmer’s Dog makes its dog food with human-grade meat and veggies in USDA-approved kitchens. Every meal is developed by veterinarians and has a nutritional profile that exceeds the industry standards for dogs set by the AAFCO. There are no preservatives or byproducts and the food is delivered fresh (never frozen) to your door within a few days of cooking.

When you sign up for The Farmer’s Dog, you set up a profile for each of your dogs with their age, weight and breed, plus activity level, body type, eating habits and any existing health issues. From there, the website will automatically recommend a meal plan and give you a daily price. For my 60-pound German Shepherd mix, the price amounted to $9.28 per day, but if you try out the service, you can get 20% off the first week.

Turkey, beef and pork meals are all part of the menu, but you can uncheck an option if you don’t want to include it in your dog’s plan. All meals are pre-portioned, so you just take a pouch out of the refrigerator, cut it open and pour it into your dog’s bowl. And all deliveries are timed so you never run out of food.


Ollie

OLLIE

Sponsored: Ollie Dog Food

Ollie is another subscription-based fresh dog food delivery service that brings your dog’s food to your house on a recurring basis. All meals are human-grade, sourced from high-quality farms in the US that care about animal welfare, and are made without any fillers or artificial ingredients.

You can choose from beef, turkey, chicken and lamb—or a combination of all of the above. All options include meat and veggies that provide ample nutrition for your pup; the beef and lamb meals also feature organ meats that are rich in essential amino acids and taurine that help protect your dog’s heart.

The food is delivered fresh and lasts for four days in the fridge, or you can store it in the freezer for about six months. Each pack comes with a resealable lid, so if you don’t use it all in one sitting, you can keep it fresh until your dog’s next meal. For a 60-pound dog, the prices start at $7.30 per meal, but you can get 50% off your first box!


Nom Nom

Healthy, natural & fresh dog food
NOM NOM

Nom Nom Fresh Dog Food

Nom Nom makes its dog food based on three principles: nutrition, sustainable sourcing and zero waste. All ingredients are sustainably-sourced (whenever possible) from U.S. growers and suppliers and each meal is made in a dedicated kitchen that’s only used for Nom Nom. Each ingredient is cooked individually, so temperature and cooking time can be controlled for optimal nutrition.

Unlike The Farmer’s Dog which packages food based on your dog’s weight and preferences, Nom Nom prepackages its food fresh every week, offering Beef Mash, Chicken Cuisine, Pork Potluck and Turkey Fare. In addition to restaurant-quality ingredients, each meal also has added fish oil. You can purchase individual meals or opt for a variety pack that includes all four so you can see what your dog likes before committing to a meal plan.

Each pack is $15, and feeding instructions are based on weight: half of a bag for dogs under 15 pounds, a full bag for dogs between 15 to 25 pounds or a full bag with your current food for dogs over 25 pounds. That means if you have a larger dog, Nom Nom serves only as a supplemental source of nutrition rather than the main dish.


PetPlate

fresh dog food: PetPlate
PETPLATE

PetPlate Fresh Dog Food

PetPlate’s subscription model is quite similar to The Farmer’s Dog: You input your dog’s information (age, activity level, weight status, and so on) and get a personalized fresh dog food meal plan delivered right to your door. Each plan is perfectly portioned, and protein options include beef, chicken, turkey and lamb. All meals are designed by a veterinary nutritionist and meet or exceed AAFCO standards.

You can choose from a full plan—a balanced diet that costs $9.37 per day for a 60-pound dog—or the topper plan, which is a supplemental option that you mix with your dog’s current food. The topper breaks down to $3.30 per day for a large dog. Either way, you’ll get 50% off your first order.

All containers arrive frozen, and you can let them defrost in the fridge or use the microwave to thaw them out in 30 seconds. Once thawed, the food will last for about five days in the refrigerator—it’s that fresh.


Spot & Tango

fresh dog food: Spot and Tango
SPOT AND TANGO

Spot & Tango Fresh or Fresh-Dried Dog Food

At first glance, Spot & Tango looks just like any other fresh dog food subscription service—you plug in your dog’s personal information and get a tailored meal plan. But the thing that makes Spot & Tango unique is that it offers a choice between fresh dog food and something the company calls UnKibble: fresh-dried food that’s made with all fresh, human-grade ingredients, but has the characteristic crunch of dry kibble and can be stored in the pantry or cabinet, instead of the fridge.

For a 60-pound dog, the fresh dog food starts at $4.05 per meal (or $8.10 per day if you feed two meals) and $2.29 per meal ($4.58 daily) for the UnKibble. The price goes up slightly depending on which type of protein you choose. Turkey is least expensive, while lamb costs more. Both types of food are designed to provide full nutrition for your pup, so it really comes down to personal preference.

If you choose the UnKibble, it arrives packaged in a bag, just like dry dog food. If you opt for the fresh dog food instead, it ships cold but Spot & Tango recommends you freeze it immediately upon arrival. The dog food lasts in the refrigerator for four days or the freezer for six months.

What Is Fresh Pet Food and Is It Actually Better?

We’re inundated with different types of pet food: kibble, raw, freeze-dried, grain-free, pâté, and more. The choices can be overwhelming, and they often look anything but appetizing. And when our social feeds advertise “fresh pet food,” it’s natural to want to know more about these pre-cooked concoctions of real meat and vegetables that ship directly to our doors.

Unlike traditional kibble pet food, fresh pet food resembles those pricey, “chunky” varieties of canned food. It has fewer or no preservatives, and it is kept in the fridge, to maintain freshness between servings. Fresh pet food is certainly more appealing in name, but we were curious about whether it was actually a more healthful option for dogs and cats. To find out more about fresh pet food diets, I spoke with Dr. Lindsey Bullen, a board-certified veterinary nutritionist who works with the Veterinary Specialty Hospital of the Carolinas. Bullen has consulted with pet food companies before, but not with any of the services we mention below. I also priced some of the trendiest options for fresh dog food subscriptions, using a fictional 70-pound, 2-year-old golden retriever—one of the country’s most popular dog breeds, according to the American Kennel Club.

What is fresh pet food, exactly?

Fresh pet food brands like Freshpet—found in the fridge in your local pet store—helped commercialize fresh options for pet owners. Today, there are dozens of brands out there, and many are available as subscription services that function the same way: You create a dog profile, complete a questionnaire, customize your delivery frequency, and voilà! Next thing you know, freshly made pet food arrives at your door packed in dry ice.

In my research, I found more than a dozen companies that market fresh pet food diets for cats and dogs, and their cooking methodologies, ingredients, and storage recommendations vary widely. According to Bullen, the term “fresh pet food” doesn’t really have a specific definition—it just refers to pet food that’s made with fewer or no preservatives. It could be made at home with boiled chicken and cooked plain rice, or it could be produced with recognizable ingredients in a facility, packaged without preservatives, and then frozen. For the brands we list here, we researched those that offer food that’s commercially produced and thoroughly cooked at a low temperature, and that contain some combination of meats, grains, fruits, and vegetables—it tends to look like you took a human’s Thanksgiving dinner plate and mixed it all together.

Okay, but is it actually better?

Many of these fresh pet food brands are marketed as being “human-grade” or say they “don’t contain fillers,” but that doesn’t mean they’re better than traditional pet food. The “fillers” in pet food are grains or carbohydrates—such as corn, soy, or wheat—that offer your pet nutritional value. Preservatives extend the shelf life, flavor, and smell of pantry pet foods and typically go through quality-control testing by the FDA or another governing body, to ensure the food is still safe for your pet to consume.

The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) defines “human-grade food” as being “suitable for human consumption,” meaning all ingredients must be safe for humans to eat. Bullen explained that “feed grade” can be defined as being “suitable for animal consumption.” But the distinction may not be much more than marketing when you’re talking about a dog who likes to eat leftovers out of the trash. “There are so many things that would make food feed grade rather than human grade that wouldn’t harm the animal in any form or fashion,” Bullen said. A prime example of “feed grade” would be poultry by-product meal, which can consist of poultry liver, spleen, or kidneys, but would not include poultry feathers or feet.

The caloric density of a diet matters more than the marketing claims. Although each service “customizes” the portions of your dog’s food, that’s not the only factor that matters. “Taking a look at the portion size doesn’t always tell you a representative idea of how many calories they’re getting,” Bullen warned. “It’s really gonna be, you know, are they maintaining weight, are they gaining weight, are they losing weight?” She said that a mark of a good program is the room for adjustment. Fresher diets tend to have a lower caloric density rate than kibble diets—similar to the caloric difference between a cup of fresh fruit and a cup of dried fruit. Most kibble diets range from 3.2 to 4.5 kilocalories per gram (91 to 128 kilocalories per ounce), according to Bullen, and the fresh pet food diets we reviewed range from 1.2 to 4.7 kilocalories per gram. (Although grams and kilograms are not typical American units of measurement, this is the standard way in which pet food is measured to find kilocalorie amounts.) This discrepancy is due to the difference in water present in each food. So be sure to follow the feeding guidelines for your service so that you don’t under- or overfeed your pet.

Ultimately, when you’re making any major changes to a pet’s diet, it’s best to consult your veterinarian. Some dogs process foods differently based on their biological build, so there’s really no “one-size-fits-all” solution for your dog’s meals. “In terms of being nutritionally superior, [fresh pet food diets] are not. It’s just going to be dependent on what that pet needs, and the individual diet that client has provided for that pet,” Bullen said.

I’ve rounded up some of the most popular direct-to-consumer fresh pet food companies. The options below are gleaned from Bullen’s expertise, interviews with each company, deep dives into third-party reviews, and comparison of each site’s pricing model, recipes, and shipping availability. I’ve also tried several different brands with my own dogs over the years, and I think the companies we mention below are great options for anyone who’s interested in feeding their dog fresh pet food.

The Farmer’s Dog

Pre-portioned packs of The Farmer's Dog fresh dog food, labeled for each dog.

The Farmer’s Dog offers freshly made, human-grade meals that pet owners could technically eat too. The company says it never uses “feed-grade ingredients” and that all of its ingredients are sourced responsibly from regional farms. The food is cooked at low temperatures, so pet owners never have to handle raw food. It arrives frozen, and all meals must be stored in the freezer and thawed in the fridge before serving. The Farmer’s Dog freezes multiple servings in each pack. To avoid leaks when the food is thawed and being stored in the fridge, you can keep it in a Rubbermaid TakeAlongs container, like I do.

Starting price: $2 per day ($12.96 per day for a 70-pound, 2-year-old golden retriever)
Recipes: turkey, beef, pork
Kilocalories per ounce: 1,170 kcal/kg (turkey); 1,530 kcal/kg (beef); 1,390 kcal/kg (pork)

Nom Nom

Nom Nom has a veterinary nutritionist on staff who ensures the recipes are formulated based on AAFCO standards, which are the industry standard for pet food (but AAFCO is not a governing body like the FDA or the USDA). Bullen hasn’t reviewed Nom Nom, but she said the fact that the company has a full-time veterinary nutritionist on staff is a good sign regarding the product’s overall nutritional value. The meals arrive frozen and should be thawed in the fridge before they are eaten. Make sure you have plenty of freezer space because each meal is individually packaged, which makes meal prep and storage easier and less messy overall. Nom Nom also adds seven complimentary back-up meals to your second order—a bonus for stocking your fridge in case of delayed deliveries.

Starting price: $3 per day ($9.69 per day for a 70-pound, 2-year-old golden retriever)
Recipes: turkey, chicken, beef, pork
Kilocalories per kg: 1,479 kcal/kg (turkey); 1,255 kcal/kg (chicken); 1,239 kcal/kg (beef); 1,246 kcal/kg (pork)

Ollie

Ollie recipes follow AAFCO standards, and the company says it sources its meats from the US and Australia. The meals arrive frozen, and though unopened meals can last in the fridge for up to 14 days, you can also freeze and thaw your pet’s meals as needed. Depending on the feeding instructions for your pet, each package could contain multiple meals. So once you open it, store the opened package in the fridge until you’ve finished it. Ollie provides a storage container and a scoop with your order to help keep those opened packages fresh.

Starting price: less than $2 per day ($10.63 per day for a 70-pound, 2-year-old golden retriever)
Recipes: turkey, chicken, beef, lamb
Kilocalories per kg: 1,390 kcal/kg (turkey); 1,298 kcal/kg (chicken); 1,540 kcal/kg (beef); 1,804 kcal/kg (lamb)

Spot & Tango sells both fresh kibble (UnKibble) and fresh food. The fresh food is “human-grade” and includes fruits, vegetables, meats, and grains, and excludes additives and preservatives. The fresh kibble is cooked in a vacuum chamber at low temperatures and dried, and it resembles typical dog kibble. The fresh kibble should be stored in a cool, dark place and used within three to four weeks of opening. The fresh food is portioned and individually packaged, and should be frozen upon delivery.

Starting price: $7 per week ($11.66 per day for a 70-pound, 2-year-old golden retriever)
