Puppy food

Puppies have specific dietary needs, different from adults and seniors. A delicate nutrient balance must be maintained, calories must be determined based on current and predicted weight, and monitoring and feedback is essential in ensuring that your puppy is having their needs met by their puppy food. Here at NomNomNow, we strive to feed dogs of all sizes, breeds, and ages, which is why we're proud to say that all of our recipes are approved for puppies.

Here's a little bit about how we have optimized our fresh food to support puppies during this critical growth phase, while providing everything they need (and a little more!).

Balanced calcium content

Calcium is responsible for strong bones, and puppies rely on it to grow. However, there can be too much of a good thing. Puppy food with excess calcium can lead to orthopedic disease as an adult, especially in large breed puppies. NomNomNow diets have been carefully crafted to provide optimal amounts of calcium, balanced by phosphorus, to promote adequate bone growth, while also reducing risk of potentially debilitating disorders later in life.

Critical nutrient level

Puppies require increased amounts of protein, amino acids, essential fats, and some vitamins and minerals in their diets. AAFCO guidelines set the standard for minimum requirements of each of these, though we have made sure our NomNomNow diets don't simply meet the standards-- we work to exceed them. DHA is one nutrient we add, which is found in the fish oil added to our recipes. It is known to enhance brain development and learning, and is extremely beneficial during the growing phase of a puppy's life.

Perfect portions

Cute as a chubby puppy is, maintaining puppies at an ideal weight is crucial to preventing orthopedic abnormalities, and helps with long-term health. Calculating how much to feed a puppy yourself can be very challenging, especially as a puppy's caloric needs change as often as every week. Because NomNomNow meals are perfectly portioned, you don't have to worry about over (or under) feeding. We handle the portioning for you, so you can rest assured that your puppy receives exactly what they need. Plus, our online profile makes it easy for you to input feedback you see, so we can adjust whenever necessary.
