Stories from customers who've had great results with Nom Nom – combating allergies, helping their pets maintain a healthy weight, and more.
A raw dog food diet (as opposed to a cooked dog food diet) is made of ingredients that are uncooked. Typically they are high-meat diets, but this may include toxin-housing organ meats, or leftover parts of the carcass after the rest of the cuts of meat have been removed.
AAFCO is the Association of American Feed Control Officials, and it is a voluntary organization that is responsible for regulating dog food (that falls under the FDA, Food and Drug Administration).
The NomNomNutrient Mix has been carefully designed for the nutrient composition of ingredients in each recipe, as well as for the different life stages of your dog. These nutrients are the same as those found naturally within foods.
On a freshly cooked diet like NomNomNow, you can rotate between different dog food recipes without a transition. The fresh recipes are similar enough in composition that there is typically no problem, and rotating recipes weekly will help keep your dog excited about different flavors and nutrient profiles.
Dogs tend to get very excited about starting a fresh diet, so a little begging-for-more is to be expected. Keep in mind though that every NomNomNow meal is perfectly portioned, and we want the transition to be easy on their stomachs. Please stick to the transition plan, and know that they only want more because of the delicious flavor.
The ingredients within the freshly cooked dog food recipes at NomNomNow have been carefully crafted to maintain freshness and prevent spoilage over the week. Extensive testing has been done to isolate certain forms of bacteria within the foods, even after preparation, to ensure they stay at healthy levels.
A fresh diet requires someone to invest the time and labor in preparing a balanced, veterinary-formulated recipe, and then actually cook every meal. Most owners don't have the time or knowledge to do this and rely on the convenience of dog foods such as kibble or wet foods.
There is a carefully crafted blend of oils in many of the fresh dog food recipes at NomNomNow, as well as the fats in animal protein. The fats found in our recipes are primarily saturated fats, which dogs tolerate very well; they don't have the same issues that humans do with saturated fats, while also being able to reap great benefits.
When it comes right down to it, it isn't the act of giving treats that encourages us to do it, but the reactions from our pets that make it all worthwhile. In 2008, veterinary nutritionists in both the United States and Australia discovered via survey that 41% of dogs & 21% of cats received treats daily.
It is perfectly natural for some dogs to skip meals on occasion. This behavior is rooted in nature and in the way dogs have evolved from their wolfy predecessors. It is simply something that happens from time to time, and it can sometimes even be a good thing.
