NomNomNow is Healthy AND Convenient
Let’s face it, it’s hard to beat the overall convenience of scooping kibble, but NomNomNow comes real close with individually packaged meals for each pet. They are formulated based on the information you provide when creating the account and the recommendations of Dr. Justin Shmalberg, a practicing veterinarian and board-certified specialist in small animal clinical nutrition. With weekly deliveries, you just put the packets in your refrigerator and serve one for each meal. You can also freeze any extra for use later. They are real easy to thaw with just a few minutes in warm water. Combine the knowledge of knowing you’re getting your dogs something really healthy and nutritionally balanced with the additional convenience of home delivery and you have a pretty perfect solution for any busy person or family who wants to give their pets something good.
We did something a little odd, and since we use NomNomNow as a supplement as part of our dog’s frequently varied diet, we created our account for a single dog of smaller size. [Note: You don’t have to do this and NomNomNow offers a variety of customization options to get you just the food you need or want for your pets. This is easily done online or with the assistance of their Customer Service team.] So our account is based on memories of our beloved Sadie. For our account she was born in May, 2012 and will therefore soon turn 6. She is 35 years old with ‘Normal’ activity level. NomNomNow calculates her caloric needs at 299 calories per meal, feeding twice a day. We had been receiving weekly deliveries of 14 meals, 7 lbs of food, for $47.10 per week. We are now getting delivery every two weeks with 28 meals per delivery of 14 lbs of food for $37.91 per week (billed $75.82 every two weeks).
Again, the NomNomNow account system does not require you do it this way and you can simply tell them how much you’d like to feed your dog and they will customize, so whether you want just some as a supplement as we do, or for their total meal needs, they will get you what you ask for and have the expert recommendations from their on-staff veterinarian. We have tried all the recipes for our dogs except the vegetarian option.
There are a number of other fresh pet food delivery options available but as of the writing of this review we have not yet tried them. Some freeze the food, and some deliver it in bulk instead of individual custom-tailored proportions, and some are not formulated by veterinarians or if they do claim to have expert formulations will not reveal who those experts are for unknown reasons.
Doing something healthy for your dogs that is easy for you. An actual named veterinary expert in nutrition custom tailors your dogs meals based on your unique information and preferences. Human-grade, restaurant-quality food that is gently cooked and perfectly safe to have in your kitchen, around toddlers, etc.
We have an odd culture where healthy choices also tend to be the more expensive choices. Going to the gym, buying all organic foods, and even just having access to healthcare are all expensive things we choose to do because we value our health and wish to live good lives. Also, all the time and money we put into those choices is intended to be an investment in not spending even more time and money sick at home or in the hospital. NomNomNow falls into that category. Yes, there are cheaper ways to feed your dog, but is it ‘worth’ it in the long run? Let the debate continue. 🙂
We love what NomNomNow has brought to the market and look forward to seeing this segment of the pet food industry continue to grow. More choices, better quality, and ideally lower costs will result as the industry evolves.
