Research and Development
Nom Nom's R&D team is constantly at work discovering both scientific facts and interesting insights about our furry friends. See what we're up to here!
Help the Nom Nom R&D team learn more about how the canine microbiome changes as the years go by.
How does the gut microbiome of pet Beagles differ from that of laboratory Beagles consuming the same diet? The Nom Nom R&D team is looking to find out.
The Nom Nom R&D team wants to explore how our GI targeted probiotics work both alone and in combination with select gut-benefiting fibers on diarrhea symptoms in dogs that chronically suffer from diarrhea.
All three of our probiotic supplements just completed a year-long evaluation of their product stability. Spoiler alert — across the board, our probiotics retained acceptable viable bacteria claims, all year long.
A new study published in January 2021 by Dr. Kelly Swanson, The Kraft Heinz Company Endowed Professor in Human Nutrition and a member of Nom Nom’s Scientific Advisory Board, is helping to prove how and why fresh food like ours is so advantageous for pet health.
In our recent study, Nom Nom scientists looked at the gut microbiome of dogs who switched from kibble to Nom Nom. The results further confirm how a fresh and healthy diet has such drastic positive effects on the gut health — and overall health — of dogs!
Gastrointestinal (GI) diseases in pets include many different conditions such as gastritis, colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and bacterial infections or overgrowth. These conditions are distinct and don't necessarily share the same risk factors or causes, nor are they treated using the same approaches. However, they do share many of the same general symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
While joint issues are a common issue for many dogs, some dogs are predisposed to particular issues due to a combination of age, size, genetics and potentially microbiome makeup. In our joint report, we track the prevalence of common joint issues by different risk factors that your dog may have, so you can get a better idea of which joint issues may appear in your pet, how to prevent or delay them and how to manage current discomfort.
In November of 2018, we launched our health assessment, an in-depth survey that 15,000+ pet parents like yourself have completed to date, creating one of the largest and most extensive repositories of dog and cat data anywhere. The information shared with us has helped contribute to peer-reviewed pet science, develop new products and better understand your unique needs. Now, it’s time for us to give back to everyone who’s generously taken the time to tell us about their pets.
