How We Develop Recipes for Optimal Nutrition

Want the benefits of homemade meals for your pup without the hassle of shopping, washing, chopping, blending, packing, freezing, and thawing the food? Well, look no further. Our human-grade, sous-vide meals are as fresh as homemade, but without the headache of all of the above.

Each of our recipes has been developed under the watchful eye of a veterinarian nutritionist. A veterinarian nutritionist is someone who post-veterinarian school opted to spend an additional two years in residency training to specialize in pet nutrition.  A board certified veterinarian nutritionist is uniquely qualified to formulate commercial foods and supplements, formulate home-prepared diets, and understand the underlying causes and implications of specific nutritional strategies that are used to prevent and treat diseases.

Each recipe was developed so that 99% of the essential nutrients come from whole food ingredients. The remaining 1% come from added vitamins and minerals.

Each of our ingredients are human-grade, non-GMO, and pesticide free.
