Fresh Pet Food Delivery: Could This  Be The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread?

Fresh pet food delivery service, NomNomNow reviewed by Sarcastic Dog. Free delivery. Customized meal plans. Fresh human grade dog food

Home delivery meals are HUGE right now. A box arrives at your door and everything is perfectly portioned and ready to prepare. There’s no meal planning, list making, or grocery shopping. You simply open the box and everything you need for a nutritious meal is waiting for you. A few chops, sprinkles, and sautés later, you have dinner on the table. It’s still a little work but it’s such a time saver and at least I know I’m guaranteed to eat some vegetables! (Seriously… I’ve been known to make a meal of nutella, a banana and slightly stale cheese popcorn when left to my own devices.)

Up until now, such services have been reserved for the human members of the household. Enter NomNomNow home-cooked dog food. This company serves up pre-portioned, personalized meals for dogs. Using fresh restaurant-quality, human grade ingredients their specialized recipes are formulated by a Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist and are designed to provide maximum nutrition. Not to overstate things, but the fact that these meals are prepared for your dog and delivered to your door with no extra delivery charge is way better than sliced bread!

NomNomNow in Action

Setting up your account is easy. You start by setting up your dog’s profile.  Tell NomNomNow about your dog and share any allergies or other relevant health information. It takes just a few minutes to get set up and start the fresh cooked goodness on its way to your door!

Each week, fresh, never frozen food arrives  at your door. The week’s worth of food is pre-portioned, labeled and ready to go right into the fridge. That’s right! There is no shopping, chopping, measuring,  or defrosting. You unpack your recyclable box (even the pouches are recyclable depending on where you live!) and put your week’s worth of food in the fridge. You can also freeze the food, if desired.  Delivery is free!

Your first week is marked for easy transition. It is critical to transition your dog to a new food slowly so as not not disrupt their system. NomNowNow labels your dog’s food so you know exactly how much to feed at each meal until your dog is fully transitioned by the end of the first week. 

When it’s meal time, simply pull a pouch out of the fridge, tear off the top and serve.

 Individual pouches are marked so you know exactly how much to feed each day. For example, on days one and two, I will feed 25% NomNomNow and 75% our regular food. On the third and fourth day, the pouches indicate a 50/50 split. Days five and six will be 75% NomNomNow/25% our regular food and then the final day of the first week is 100% NomNomNow.


I’m excited that NomNomNow let’s you customize the fresh dog food your dog eats based on their individual needs. As some of you know, Piper has a serious food sensitivity, so we are always looking for grain free, limited ingredient, single protein high quality dog food. We have tried a variety of kibbles, canned foods, and dehydrated foods in various combinations with varying results. I am really excited to see how she does on the NomNowNow personalized meal plan.  

Fresh Food Options

NomNomNow offers several vet-formulated recipes that are perfectly balanced including:

Heartland Beef Mash
Tasty Turkey Fare
Chicken Chow-Wow
Porkalicious Potluck
Egg & Veggie Medley

After a quick online chat with customer service, I decided to start Piper on the Porkalicious PotLuck. She hasn’t had a pork-based food so I’m really curious to see how her system handles this new protein.


The Advantages of a Fresh Food Diet

Let’s be honest, feeding your dog kibble is about as easy as it gets but it can be nutritionally deficient and, especially for animals with dietary issues, it’s often hard to find truly limited ingredient dog food which makes it hard to identify what might be causing a food reaction. Providing a fresh, home-cooked food can improve your dog’s overall health and wellness. The NomNomNow food is about as clean as it gets – no fillers or preservatives and when it arrives at your door, it has never been frozen. Short of making it yourself, it’s hard to get much fresher than that. This type of diet is more easily absorbed for energy, contributes to a stronger, healthier immune system, improves coat shine, healthy skin and eye brightness. Another nice bonus is that  NomNomNow does not add unnecessary fiber to their recipes which means that your dog uses more of the food and produces less waste (Score!)

And, if all that isn’t enough, it’s a major time saver! If time constraints make it a challenge for me to get healthy home cooked meals on the table for myself, chances are I’m going to be hard-pressed to prepare fresh cooked or raw meals for my three dogs.  The reality is that I don’t know enough about dog nutrition to even know where to start when it comes to preparing healthy fresh food for my dogs so I am really excited to try NomNomNow with my crew and will be sharing everyone’s progress in the coming months.

    Nom Nom looks like a fabulous option for dogs! I like that they use human grade ingredients and that there is no prep work besides opening the package. I also appreciate that the packaging is recyclable. I would bet that Piper LOVES this food, and I’m looking forward to reading more about it. I hope that Nom Nom becomes available in my area soon.

    That’s awesome! It’s so great NomNomNow uses real food! There isn’t anything better than real food fit for human consumption. Glad pet food companies are realizing that. Yum Yum

      I think Piper is LOVING it and I am thrilled with it so far! I also love that this company is committed to rescue and recyclable packaging.

    That looks delicious! Kibble, while easy, is definitely not the best option for our pups. I love seeing people finding kibble alternatives that work for them and their pups!

      So far, this has been an amazing experience – from the ease of setting up my account, to the customer service in helping me select the right recipe for Piper’s needs to the pre-packaged transition week.

      Piper can’t have chicken, grain or multi-protein foods so the single protein, grain-free Porkalicious Potluck has been perfect for her.

    Restaurant quality, wow! I love that this is now an option. I would love to cook for Ruby, but like you don’t have the knowledge or really the time. Also, love that they help with the transition to their food and flavor mixes sound fantastic.

      As I said, there are days that I can barely prepare a meal for myself so there’s no way I’d have time to prep two meals a day for three dogs. The transition week could not have gone better.

    I love that you equate NomNomNow with human meal delivery kits! So few people realize that eating kibble is not the ideal for dogs.

      It’s pretty awesome just opening a pack and serving! I’ve tried a couple of the meal kit delivery companies for humans and the only problem is that you still have to cook the meals for yourself! 😉 Now, if they would just include a personal chef with those human meal kits… 😉

    We LOVE to cook so it’s not an issue for us, but this is a fantastic solution for those that hate spending time in the kitchen. All the benefits and … no dishes. 🙂

      I used to love to cook too. Then I moved into a house with a very uninspiring, small kitchen and I kind of lost the joy 😉 So far, the best part with this food has been that Piper has had zero digestive issues. I am always really straight with folks about the issues we have with any foods we try because I know we are not the only ones that struggle with food sensitivities/allergies/digestive concerns We try very few foods and rarely introduce new things to Piper’s diet because she is so sensitive but after researching this company and giving it a try, I’m feeling really good about what this company has to offer.

    I love these services. One doesn’t have to try to remember things, doesn’t have to travel anywhere … Up here, in the middle of nowhere, we can’t expect such services but I’d likely use it if it was available.

    I’m much like you – I avoid cooking whenever I can. NomNomNom is a great idea! Get all of the homemade food benefits for your dog without all of the stuff that makes doing it yourself hard. Your dogs sound like they are eating really healthy these days!

      The dogs really seem to love the food so far and all I have to do is open a pouch! That totally works for me 🙂

    I watched your YouTube video about this product and it really sounds like a wonderful idea. My only question was about the length of time the food would stay cold if it was delivered on a hot day and you couldn’t get home to get it inside before evening.

      I’ll let you know as we get into warmer weather as my front porch gets direct and very hot Colorado sunshine for most of the day. I was impressed with how cold everything was when I opened the first box. I may have to request that the box be left to the side of the porch when it gets really hot.

    I ordered this for The Poodle Pair, am looking forward to seeing how it works for them. Really like the way everything, down to the transition packs, is labelled. So many people make a “flash cut” transition, then wonder why their pet has digestive issues. It’s pricey, since I have two dogs, if it works well for them, might have to go with every other month.

      Please let me know what you think. We are so picky about the foods we try/review and so far, I am beyond thrilled. Definitely a little steep with all three dogs in the house but if since Piper is doing well on it, I’m thinking of keeping her on it and supplementing the other two. I’ll keep everyone posted on our progress.

    I love the look of NomNom food. So healthy and convenient and I bet Piper loves it. I wonder if they deliver up in Canada yet- I’ll have to check as I am sure Kilo would enjoy.
