Door-to-Door Home Cooked Goodness
Here in the U.S. a new company called Just Food For Dogs is earning accolades from vets and canine nutritionists for delivering outstanding frozen homemade meals straight to customers’ doorsteps. Their recipes are so good, we want to make sure U.S. pawrents know they can try this excellent new alternative to home cooked dog food.
Just Food For Dogs (JFFD) produces small batches of home cooked, flash-frozen meals made with 100% USDA certified meats, vegetables and whole grains. Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray went nuts when he received a care package straight from JFFD’s custom-designed dog food preparation kitchen in Newport Beach, California.
Since January 2011 JFFD has created six different recipes of human-grade, preservative-free meals. What makes JFFD stand out from other dehydrated and frozen raw meals currently on the market is that is that each individually vacuum sealed package of food is made in small batches and cooked to minimal levels to maximize the nutritional value.
Visit the JFFD website to see exactly what goes into each meal.
Custom and Prescription Formulas Available
Just Food For Dogs even offers a line of outstanding homemade and customized veterinary prescription diets that help dogs live healthier lives when combating specific diseases like cancer, kidney and liver disease and obesity. We’re really excited about JFFD’s Neoplasia Support Meal, which we’ll tell you about in an upcoming post.
For dogs with special nutrition needs that aren’t currently on JFFD’s menu, for $95 their veterinary nutritionists will work with your vet to create a customized meal plan just for your dog’s specific nutritional needs (meal costs are additional).
JFFD’s recipe formulations are based on National Research Council (NRC) recommendations to ensure all essential nutrients are present. Each meal contains individually-formulated nutrients from NHK Laboratories, a respected U.S. Manufacturer. And unlike home cooked meals that you might make at home, each package of JFFD can be fed as a stand-alone diet without added supplements.
Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray and his friends the Oaktown Pack had a great time feasting on JFFD’s delectible meals! With not so much as a single upset stomach, these pups were begging for more at the end of each meal.
JFFD also creates several different supplements for joint care and probiotics as well as seven different types of fresh treats including everything from beef liver to frozen pupsicles. Their website features an extensive unbiased education center that shares the fundamentals of canine nutrition that’s worth checking out.
When you receive your first Just Food For Dogs package you’ll get lots of great materials including a recipe guide to help transition your dog to home cooking with a reduced risk of gastrointestinal upset. JFFD also provides you with measuring scoops, a food container and even a surprise toy for your pooch. The materials also include ingredients lists and fact sheets that show you the cost differences between JFFD’s extraordinary meals and popular holistic-oriented commercial dog foods.
For now, Just Food For Dogs is only available in the U.S. by visiting their storefront, ordering on the phone or online. Orders are shipped almost everywhere in the U.S. via overnight courier.
