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!
In November of 2018, we launched our health assessment, an in-depth survey that over 15,000 pet parents like yourself have filled out to date, creating one of the largest and most extensive repositories of dog and cat data, anywhere. The information shared with us has helped us contribute to peer-reviewed pet science, develop new products, and better understand your unique needs.
Calling all itchers, scratchers, biters and lickers. Learn about our upcoming study and join Nom Nom's R&D team in the fight against allergies.
For the first time ever, the Nom Nom R&D team has systematically collected health data from pets about to ditch kibble for Nom Nom. The results are in, and they might surprise you.
Plant foods are significant sources of essential vitamins and minerals for dogs. However, some dog parents view them as “fillers,” and recent diet trends limiting the intake of plant-based ingredients are increasingly common. Here, we show that plant foods are an important part of your dog’s diet, providing health benefits.
For the first time ever, Nom Nom’s R&D team conducted a scientific study to determine the digestibility of Nom Nom fresh diets in comparison to a high-quality kibble diet. Find out which diet has a higher digestibility and why this measure is very important for your pups!
In this new study, Nom Nom’s scientists demonstrate the positive effects of our Full Spectrum Probiotics Blend on a dog’s gut microbiome, and discuss what the implications are for your dog’s health. They have also identified that your dog’s baseline microbiome profile may explain how well they will respond to the probiotic supplementation.
A new study from the University of Liverpool showed that diet may be a more efficient approach than exercise for weight loss in overweight dogs.
Dental health is an important part of a pet's overall wellness, and periodontal disease is one of the most common medical conditions in both dogs and cats. However, it is poorly understood by both scientists and the general public. There have been few large-scale research studies conducted on periodontal disease in pets, and as a result the internet abounds with misinformation and conflicting advice based largely on unscientific anecdotal evidence. Read on to discover the truth about four common mythes surrounding periodontal disease.
In one of the largest pet microbiome studies to date, Nom Nom scientists have characterized the bacteria living in pets’ guts in an effort to better understand how these microbes affect your pet’s health.
While the obesity epidemic in humans has garnered its fair share of scientific interest and media coverage, the parallel epidemic in our companion animals has received far less attention.
