We’ve developed a proprietary algorithm alongside our vets to determine the ideal meal plan for each dog. We start by asking the right questions and create a customized plan to fit your dog’s needs. After you start, our nutritional experts monitor your dog’s progress and adjust serving packs accordingly.
Our board-certified veterinary nutritionists carefully formulate each recipe to be complete and balanced according to AAFCO standards, and we use all human-grade ingredients to do so. Each recipe is cooked in our human-grade kitchens in New York, and quickly frozen for transport. Since we package your meals perfectly to your dog’s needs, your food never sits on a shelf for months at a time, and you don’t have to trust packaging that can fail and produce mold. Sometimes things just work out to be a win-win.
Each dog is different, and pricing will depend on a variety of factors including age, weight, activity, and more. Fill out our questionnaire to determine your costs! We don’t use any retail stores, so your dollars go more towards your dog’s ingredient quality, and not to all the middlemen.
Please do! They will take comfort in the fact that we work alongside board certified veterinary nutritionists, and while many vets fight over different food trends, just about every vet agrees that nutritionally balanced homemade food is great for dogs. If your dog does not normally need a prescription diet and is otherwise healthy, they’ll do great on our food with or without a consultation with your vet.
First and foremost, we use real food. All of our ingredients are human-grade and sourced from restaurant suppliers, local farms, or other human food purveyors. We never use feed grade ingredients and we don’t process our ingredients to be shelf-stable, getting the most natural nutrients available. You can see your ingredients by selecting a recipe in our meal plan questionnaire.
You can! But recent research found 95% of recipes online to be lacking in crucial nutrients for dogs. Serious complications from nutrient deficiencies (and, more commonly, overdosing) could arise if a recipe hasn’t been properly calibrated. The Farmer’s Dog can provide recipes formulated by our veterinary nutritionists along with a pre-mixed nutrient pack via our DIY program.
With our meal plans, customers receive deliveries of freshly prepared food on a recurring basis. Meals are customized to fit your dog’s needs and come in convenient serving packs to make feeding easy. We perfectly time deliveries to make sure you never run out of food.
If your dog doesn’t love it, send it back or donate the package to a local shelter. We can send you more recipes or you can opt for a refund.
