New type of dog food

Petcurean has come out with a first of it's kind replacing it's line of Go canned foods. It is a wet food that is cooked at a lower temperature than traditional canned foods and is cooked in tetra paks . I have fed freeze dried raw and Petcurean canned for years and this is a new idea that I think will be followed by other companies. They have always been a top quality and safety company . I usually don't like recommending foods, as every dog is different and price also becomes an issue for many. They have a nice limited ingredient one. Molly transitioned from chicken stew canned to the new tetra pak shredded chicken no problem. here's the link https://www.petcurean.com/new-go-sol...wet-food-faqs/

Will check it out.

I've been using Honest Kitchen dehydrated human-dog food, broth, topping it with a few their crunches, with pieces of fresh chicken I cook. Patti no longer will eat unless I top it off with Chicken Pieces.

My daughter just ordered NomNomNow ... which is fresh food cooked and frozen in one meal pouches.

All good food is expensive.

I thought this was a good article on the different types of dog food.... the Pros and Cons (Kibble, Raw, Cooked) and portion sizes depending on age and size of dog.

I'm using Honest Kitchen and my daughter has put her Golden-doodle on Fresh Cooked food by NomNomnow.

I'm not advocating any particular brand of dog food. My only advocacy would be for good nutritious food.

I thought I had heard all the arguments against raw feeding but this article actually raises some new ones.

The article says some vets may not treat a raw fed dog. As a raw feeder for ten years, I have never had this situation. In fact I have had two vets who support raw feeding and one of them has a certified nutritionist on staff. I am not saying this is not true. However, I have never seen this.

The article says that a raw fed dog must not lick you and you must not touch its paws or any fur that has come into contact with raw food. If this were true, I would be dead by now. Dogs lick their butts, eat poop and step in squirrel droppings so what about that?

The article says raw food diets typically are too high in fat. This may be true with some commercial raw food or may not, depending on the source. I am sure there are fresh food companies that are better than others, just like raw. People who feed a homemade raw diet need to be careful about the amount of fat they feed, along with everything else.

I am also all for feeding good nutritious food regardless of type. Fresh sounds like a great option. However, this article was written by a company who sells fresh and they come across a bit bias against raw IMO.

Salmonella in particular is a caution, but there are others as well. I have come across this information before, as well as the recommendation that feeding raw isnít recommended for immune compromised owners. Itís one of the reasons I donít feed ďtrueĒ raw (the food uses one of the processes to eliminate bacteria, I think itís also cooked at a lower temperature, but itís in line with basic raw nutrition philosophies), but DS is still not supposed to handle my dogís poop, and we are not supposed to let the dog lick him, although we gave up on that.

May I ask, how is the smell of the food? I know, itís crazy, but I was so relieved when we stopped using wet food because the smell really gets to me. But, Iím really interested in this type of food option.

Iím confused by the NomNomNow. I was intrigued by the idea of ďfresh,Ē which I would consider an ideal dog diet, but I dont really cook and i dont have the time to track/balance an appropriate diet. Premade fresh would be an interesting option. But, the pictures of the actual food in bags looks dried. Also, I donít even dare ask since the prices arenít available without registering, how expensive is the subscription?

My daughter is trying this dog food on her 60-70 lb Golden-doodle and she told me it would cost $100 per month, two meals a day.

It is fresh, not dry. It's cut up into small pieces. It comes frozen and it's kept in the freezer then several packages are moved into the frig to thaw.

My daughter is a busy working mom with two teenage boys, and is Vegan which requires a lot of cooking time, so like you she doesn't have time nor want to find the time to cook for Lucy, the Golden-doodle...who has become a VERY!!! picky eater at age 9 years.

Lucy recently has had some significant skin problems which developed into a Yeast Infection. She's been on a lot of medications, hasn't felt good and is refusing to eat the NomNomNow food.

Lucy prefers that my daughter cook for her, too. Daughter has been buying shredded cooked chicken from the grocery deli and supplements it with sweet and white potatoes plus other vegetables.

Lucy's skin problems have cleared up and is being taken off medications. Daughter thinks Lucy may be more interested will eat the NomNomNow fresh food after she gets of the medications.

Daughter purchased NomNomNow as a Trial ... to see if Lucy will eat.

Daughter may have Spoiled Lucy ... and she might not want to give up the Deli Shredded Chicken.

I feed my Havanese Honest Kitchen dehydrated with a little HK broth.... topped with a few pieces of HK Beef and Chicken crunches and fresh cooked chicken.

I've RUINED my dog and I'm now cooking chicken to top off her meals. One day I left the chicken topping off, to see if she'd eat the HK without it.

Patti wondered over to the bowel, then came back and sat down and looked up at me with those big brown eyes ... Waiting Patiently until I added the chicken topping. Then she ate ALL her food and Licked the bowel.
