My dog Bailey would love to be the taste tester of everything on my plate. I keep a strict “no table food” rule to keep my pup safe, but the next best thing (or maybe even the even better thing) is human-grade dog food that satisfies both her hunger and her needs.
According to my internet sleuthing, there are a few top companies making fresh, healthy, whole foods right now, including Ollie and The Farmer's Dog. Bailey and I will always be choosing Nom Nom, and here's why:
Nom Nom helps keeps my pup’s digestion on track
The ugly side of dog ownership is having to pick up after them constantly. I’ve made my peace with it, but I was thrilled to learn that fresh dog food is more easily digestible, leading to fewer and smaller stools. We've tried other fresh dog food brands, but have seen real results with Nom Nom. Knowing her entire system is responding to this wholesome real food positively makes me one happy pup parent.
Nom Nom is super convenient dog food
Let’s be real, providing the best possible dog food for Bailey also has to be something I realistically have the bandwidth for in my day to day life.
Brands like The Farmer's Dog have meals that come in packs which can represent one, two, or four meals. Ollie's packaging is also easy to open; they provide a container and a spoon to store and portion meals.
On the other hand, Nom Nom takes packaging to the next level with convenient single packs for each meal, all portioned to your dog’s daily needs. No guessing or scooping required. Nom Nom gets bonus points because they uniquely offer the ability to auto-rotate recipes so your dog never gets bored at mealtime.
Nom Nom, The Farmer's Dog, and Ollie all have recipes are carefully formulated by veterinary nutritionists to provide the right balance of protein, fat, fiber, and vitamins and minerals. But Nom Nom goes one step further with Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionists actually on staff.
With minimal processing and chunks of real food, you can see all the natural nutritiousness of proteins and veggies that Nom Nom meals deliver. As an optional extra, you can add a probiotic to your shipment to help digestion and absorption of all those nutrients.
Nom Nom offers amazing customization & auto-rotated recipes
Every dog is different — and their food options should reflect that. Nom Nom, Ollie, and Farmer’s Dog are in a class of their own because they take all your pet’s details into account when developing meals, paying close attention to known and potential allergies. All three brands offer four different recipes for fresh meals, Farmer’s Dog and Nom Nom feature Beef, Chicken, Pork, and Turkey, while Ollie features Beef, Chicken, Turkey, and Lamb.
The Farmer’s Dog offers a very detailed questionnaire (including questions on spay/neuter status, pickiness, and current preferred type of food). If your dog likes kibble, Ollie also offers two options for Baked dog food and you can choose just fresh, baked, or a mix of both with your delivery.
Nom Nom also offers a comprehensive questionnaire based on age, weight, breed, and health issues. However, Nom Nom stands apart because it also offers the unique ability to auto-rotate recipes so your dog never gets bored at mealtime. Bailey and I love this auto-rotate feature, as she's very food-motivated!
Nom Nom is the tastiest dog food
I can research my life away, but if Bailey won’t eat it, it’s out of the question. Obviously! Each of these companies delivers recipes designed by veterinary nutritionists and made with quality ingredients, but in the end, Nom Nom was my dog’s favorite. She devoured her meal and seemed to wag her tail the hardest when I was serving her a Nom Nom meal over the others. It was actually so adorable how excited she would get at mealtime. Visually, Nom Nom stands out to me with fresh, whole ingredients you can actually see and recognize. Other dog food brands like Ollie don't look as appealing to me.
Nom Nom's dog food is high-quality
Imagine how cute Bailey and I look side by side every evening, me eating my healthy home-cooked dinner at the table, and her contently munching her fresh dog food from her bowl at my feet. This scene is only possible with food that she loves and that I feel good about feeding her, which is to say, top-notch quality, made with care.
Nom Nom guarantees high-quality proteins and vegetables, all sourced from approved U.S. suppliers. Plus, Nom Nom’s recipes meet AAFCO guidelines. This definitely can't be said for dry food from the grocery store!
Nom Nom is our choice
Where did our experimentation take us? Well, we’ve determined that while there are other nutritious and high-quality dog food brands like Ollie and The Farmer's Dog, our clear favorite was Nom Nom.
All it took was a few orders for Bailey’s energy to increase, her breath to smell better, her poops to be smaller and less frequent, and even for her coat to look shinier. We also love that you can rotate recipes to keep things interesting.
Nom Nom even offers a money-back guarantee if you don’t see benefits in 30 days with a refund on your first order. But Bailey and I feel confident that you’ll love this fresh dog food as much as we do.
