Subscription Box Gourmet Dog Food

Welcome to our Nom Nom Now review. Pet parents often wonder, “What is the best dog food?” For years the answer was the same, any one of the top dog food brands that have a good amount of meat and not a lot of fillers like grains or meat by-products in the food. Some of these top dog food brands are Blue Buffalo, Orijen, Natural Balance and the other high-end dog foods found at pet stores. But a new trend has started, these newer brands are preparing fresh “human-grade” meals for dogs and cats and delivering these pre-portioned meals to pet parents who want the very best available for their 4-legged friends. The two leaders to emerge in this new market are brands Nom Nom Now and Ollie. This review focuses on Nom Nom Now.

Human-Grade Dog Food

Nom Nom Now is a fresh pet food subscription box that offers fresh, human-grade, all-natural, chef-prepared meals for your dog or cat that are formulated by leading veterinary nutritionist Dr. Justin Shmalberg. NomNomNow meals are pre-portioned for easy feeding and contain USDA certified ingredients complete with all of the vital nutrients your pet needs to thrive! Prices vary based on your pet’s weight. (To give you an idea of cost- a week’s worth of food for an 8lb. cat or a 12lb. dog is around $45)

NomNomNow literally customizes and tailors their dog and cat food in order to provide the best and healthiest options for your pet. It’s easy to get started and get a price quote in a minute or less.

Once the recipe is determined, their chefs will start preparing your customized meal for your pet with the exact measurements of calorie intake that has been advised.

The Pros And Cons:


  • NomNomNow also guarantees fresh cat food in a wide variety, unlike many food delivery services. Many homes have both cats and dogs and this company guarantees nutritional fresh food for all of them.
  • Take The Comparison Test – If you are still not convinced that NomNomNow has the freshest food with the highest quality and nutritional value, compare your current food and see the difference.
  • Free Delivery – Fresh food is delivered directly to your door with just one click of a button.


  • Short Shelf Life – Fresh food is the very best choice for your pet but it only remains fresh for a few days upon arrival.
  • The Cost – NomNomNow food is not the cheapest food in the market for fresh food and delivery services. You should get a quote to see if this is the right choice for you.
  • Not In Stores – If you run out of food before your next delivery date, you cannot run to your local store and replace this food. Fortunately, the fresh ingredients will allow you to make similar recipes at home if you do run out of food.

High-Quality Ingredients:

All dogs are different and have many different health conditions. NomNomNow provides transparent information regarding their recipes and also offers a breakdown of every ingredient and its nutritional breakdown. Also, they provide a description of how each element will improve the overall health of your pet.

The same is said for your cat with ingredients and a wide range of recipes for all their needs as well. Cats have very different health requirements from dogs and NomNomNow scores really high for understanding the what cats need.

A Variety Of Food 

NomNomNow understands that some dogs and cats are picky eaters and other pets need specific nutrients. They have the very best range of foods to choose from. There are 4 delicious recipes that will also allow you to mix and match recipes to find out what food your pet loves the most. Also, and very importantly, all meals come with very easy to understand descriptions of the ingredients so you will always know exactly what your pets are ingesting.

    I’m a single parent to 3 dogs matured and 2 cats 11/2 old and a liter of kittens (5), 2 wks old. Pippie was flown from Texas to Indiana, at his request, after he passed away of cancer in 2015. He and my aunt saw her in a store window. My uncle got her as a bed companion for my aunt hisocko, who was dying. Uncle hanks go to food leading up to his death was bacon. Oscar was adopted by my daughter but became a product of divorce. She is in high management so he stayed here. But has some sort of skin condition. One of my moms passed in April of this yr, due to a cat scratch. Leaving behind her loyal and faithful Lucy. She’s 14 yrs old, misses her momma and doesn’t eat much. Unless, it’s cabbage. All chiwauwaus. Frankie, is my blue fawn pit brindle, he’s 1 yr 3 mnths with lots of energy. Both cats are about the same age, 1 – 11/2. Both inside, both females. Only, 1 has a litter of 5 kittens. I would like to try a free sample of your choice, based on this info. Thank you
