We all care about our pets living a happy and healthy life.

We make sure they’re full vaccinated with annual trips to the vet, provide ample toys for their entertainment and many are protected with insurance should the unthinkable happen.

But have you ever considered whether you are using healthy dog food or healthy cat food? Many of us feed our pets kibble and wet food without really considering the potential negative impact such meals could have.

NomNomNow are a California-based start-up that are providing human-grade meals with the freshest, restaurant-quality ingredients for our canine and feline companions.

It is veterinarian formulated to provide your cat or dog with homemade real food to boost their mood, bolster their immune system, achiever a shinier coat, find a healthier weight and give them more energy.

What’s more, NomNomNow tailor their cooked dog/cat food to your pet’s specific needs, whether they’re looking to gain weight or shed some pounds.

NomNomNow’s homemade real food is delivered to your doorstep and the dog/cat food delivery occurs weekly, bi-weekly or monthly depending on your subscription.

Preparing your pet’s NomNomNow meal is simple.

The dog food delivery is comprised of packets of food.

You may want to consider running warm water over the packet for 10 seconds before serving.

Each meal pack is an easy to rip container to ensure no fussing round with scissors.

It couldn’t be easier.

NomNomNow offer pet owners interested in feeding their pets natural meals the chance to sample all four of their dog recipes (and two cat recipes).

This will ensure your pet is happy with their fresh cat/dog food. For dogs, it could be pork, chicken, beef or turkey. Cats have a selection of chicken or fish.

NomNomNow calculate the price of their meals based upon your cat or dog’s age and weight as well as activity level. The recipes do differ in price.

For example, my two Alaskan Klee Kai dogs vary in age and weight. Skye, black and white, is 14 months and weighs just under 12lbs. Her younger brother Copper, red and white, is little over 10lbs. Their cooked dog food vary slightly in size, with Copper receiving a little more than his older sibling. NomNomNow took into consideration their weight goals to ensure both Skye and Copper continued their natural development.

The Sport Review can offer our readers 50 per cent off your first Nom Nom Now order, just follow this link.

The California-based company offer a Care-grade guarantee.

If new customers don’t see the difference that NomNomNow’s fresh diet can make within 30 days of starting the meal plan, NomNomNow will buy your next pet’s order to the value of $40.

Another thing to consider is the frequency of delivery.

NomNomNow can provide a weekly delivery comprised of 14 meal packs, which your cat or dog are fed twice daily. Alternatively, you can receive the homemade real food twice a month or monthly.

NomNomNow reviews – What are customers saying?

James of St Augistine, Florida:

“I can’t say enough how much we love this food. My dog can’t wait to eat every day. After months of being on the food, his coat is shinier, he is more active, and overall noticeably happier. I have not had any issues with shipping with NomNomNow as I previously had with other companies. The food is delivered on time, always cold and fresh. Also, the thought they put into the packaging is great. The pouches are super convenient and fit nicely in my refrigerator. I’m so glad we found out about NomNomNow. The customer service is outstanding. The follow up emails and calls are an excellent touch and let us know we had chosen the right company for our dog’s food needs.”

Terrie of New Braunfels, Texas:

“I had a hard time feeding my “picky eater” Boston Terrier. I was spending so much money each month trying to find that “right food” that she would eat. While searching online I came across NomNomNow and after reading the ingredients I just had to see if my little Dot would eat this food. SHE LOVES IT! And I am spending less money each month! Win/Win and I give NomNomNow FIVE STARS!”

Lauren of Atlanta, Georgia:

“I have been impressed since day one with this company. My picky pups LOVE the food and I can see their energy sustain. Coats are healthy and blood work from vet is good! The customer service is on point! So glad I chose this company for my pups. We love NomNomNow!”

Gundi of Walnut Creek, California:

“Since my dogs are eating NomNomNow, their digestive issues have resolved and they no longer struggle to keep their perfect weight. I know I feed my dogs real food, ingredients that I know and identify as actual food, not synthetic additives and flavorings. I appreciate the transparent packaging and because the food is pre-measured makes it every easy to feed the dogs by any member of the family.”

Any Negatives?

NomNomNow’s freshly cooked dog and cat meals are quite expensive given they provide a premium and quality service. While we all want to feed our dogs and cats to have the healthiest possible diet, you may struggle to find room in your budget.

However, while NomNomNow’s meals do cost more than your bog-standard dog/cat kibble, these freshly prepared, home delivered recipes should be considered a long-term investment in the overall health and wellbeing of your canine and feline friends.

However, The Sport Review can offer our readers 50% off their first NomNomNow order simply by clicking on this link.

Unfortunately NomNomNow only deliver to 48 of USA’s 50 states (not Alaska and Hawaii). For those from further afield who are interested in their home cooked meals, you will have to wait before trying NomNomNow.

Conclusion – Our final verdict

For those looking for peace of mind that their cat or dog is eating the highest quality ingredients, choose NomNomNow. They will ensure your pet has a strong immune system to protect against potential illnesses. Their carefully designed recipes will increase the energy levels of your canine or feline pets ensuring they remained fuel for adventures around the house or long walks in lush countryside.

My experience with NomNomNow has been overwhelmingly positive. My two dogs, Copper and Skye, have gained vital pounds and have noticeably more energy for our daily walks.

Having previously fed them kibble without a problem, Skye and Copper stopped eating after a brief illness. They showed an interest in air-dried meat but after a couple of weeks, Skye and Copper started to leave most of their meals in the bowl.

Our vet was unhappy with the size of both pups and suggested a number of different options to help them to put on weight. It was at this point that a serendipitous meeting with a fellow dog owner at our local dog park led us to NomNomNow. We haven’t looked back since our first delivery.

Skye and Copper love their Hearty Beef Mash. The days of picking at their food are over as both race to finish their dog bowls before an optimistic glance to their sibling in the hope of finding some leftovers. Both are left disappointed.

Crucially, Copper and Skye have both gained over a pound since starting NomNomNow’s healthy dog food two months ago. Our Alaskan Klee Kai pups have returned to their happy, energetic selves, hiking around the hills of California.

The ease of having my pets’ meals freshly prepared and delivered right to my doorstep has made life that little bit easier. I no longer spend my evenings cooking rice and chicken or warming up some gravy to add flavour to their bland kibble meals. I know their diet is in good hands thanks to NomNomNow.
