Included With Every Recipe
Each recipe is uses nutrient-dense whole foods and supplements, as necessary, to create a meal plan that is complete and balanced for your pet. Each formulation is built from our pet’s specific nutritional requirements (NRC, FEDIAF or AAFCO), health status, condition, and growth stage. I only use ingredients listed on your intake form (based on what you say you can easily access), so meal plans are also affordable and practical for the owners.
How to Get Started
Healthy Adult Recipe
1 Recipe: $45 | 2 Recipes: $85 | 3 Recipes: $130
A raw or cooked recipe formulated specifically for your dog. Recipes are formulated only around your easily accessible ingredients. Each recipe includes adjustments during the formulation process and 15 minutes of aftercare for questions.
Eligible Dogs: Adult dogs without health conditions. Allergies, seniors, and weight loss cases are considered healthy.
Starting at 1 Recipe for 2 Dogs: $75
A raw or cooked recipe formulated specifically for your pack of dogs. Recipes are formulated only around your easily accessible ingredients. Each recipe includes adjustments during the formulation process and 15 minutes of aftercare for questions.
Eligible Dogs: Adult dogs without health conditions. Allergies, seniors, and weight loss cases are okay. If your dog has IBD, severe allergies, or heart, kidney or liver conditions, your case is not eligible. All dogs must have similar caloric needs, relative to their weight – ie. bigger dogs need more calories, smaller dogs need less calories.
Puppy Recipe Packages
1 Recipe Package: $125| 2 Recipe Package: $230 | 3 Recipe Package: $335
Recipe packages start with a recipe tailored for your puppy, based on their energy needs, size, and breed specific nutrient requirements. As they grow, each recipe is adjusted to accommodate changing nutrient needs – so you will receive an updated recipe every 1-3 months throughout growth. Each puppy recipe also includes a free adjustment to an adult recipe once the puppy reaches their adult weight.
Recipes can include raw meaty bones for recreational chewing, and snack mixes for stuffing KONGs (or other puzzle toys), and include training treats.
Eligible puppies: Puppy formulations are suitable for all ages post weaning. If your puppy is almost adult weight (over 80% of expected adult weight) and a large or giant breed, I recommend a puppy formulation. Otherwise, for puppies almost at adult weight, you can request an adult recipe.
For reproductive (gestation, lactation) recipes, please contact me to discuss your case.
Joint support recipe: $65 | All other health conditions: $95
A raw or cooked recipe therapeutically formulated for your dog’s specific health condition. Formularions will follow veterinary recommendations (if given), and can be designed to serve as suitable replacements for commercial prescription diets. Therapeutic recipes include adjustments during the formulation process and 15 minutes of aftercare for questions.
Eligible health conditions:
- Elimination diets for allergies
- Joint diseases such as osteoarthritis ($65)
- Chronic kidney disease
- IBS and pancreatitis
- Heart diseases
- Some urinary disorders
For other health conditions, please contact me to discuss your case.
An examination of your pet’s current diet (homemade or commercial) to determine if it’s complete or balanced.
Eligible Dogs: Adult dogs and puppies, with some health conditions accepted. Allergies, seniors, and weight loss cases are considered proactive cases. Additional fee would apply for puppy diets or dogs with health conditions.
Diet Analysis without Recommendations – $55: You will receive a 2-3 page report, including a diet nutritional profile. I include my general thoughts about the recipe, how the macronutrient and micronutrient levels look, what is in excess and what is deficient. This does not include any specific recommendation for how to change or adjust the recipe.
RFN Sheet Analysis – $20: Available only for people who use the RFN Sheet. I comment directly into the RFN Sheet or type up the comments in an email. This is a more informal analysis, and does not include a nutritional profile.
Add-on – Diet Recommendations – $10: This is an add-on to either of the above services. I will include some recommendations for supplements, adjustments to current ingredients or recommend additional ingredients that may benefit the diet.
1 Recipe: $35 | 2 Recipes: $60 | Toppers Pack Recipes: $20/additional dog
A recipe of raw or cooked toppers to add on top of a complete and balanced kibble diet to enhance commercial diets with fresh food. Formulated specifically for your dog, and only around your easily accessible ingredients. Dogs must already be doing well on the kibble without problems, and be eating within the recommended feeding guidelines. Each recipe includes adjustments during the formulation process and 15 minutes of aftercare for questions.
Eligible Dogs: Adult dogs without health conditions. Allergies, seniors, and weight loss cases are okay.

Most frequent questions and answers
Recipes can be raw or cooked, your preference! For some pets, a cooked recipe is better, particularly for older animals, pets with GI issues, or with low appetite.
All recipes are balanced to nutritional standards set by the NRC, FEDIAF or AAFCO. When whole foods falls short, supplements may be included to meet your pet’s nutritional needs. I work with each owner to determine if they want to maximize whole foods (which may be more costly or require more prep time) or if they prefer to use affordable or easily accessible cuts (which may not be as nutritionally impactful).
Usually yes. I can also formulate to FEDIAF or AAFCO standards!
On your intake form, you list the whole foods that are easily accessible to you. Recipes are made with only these ingredients. Before the recipe is finalized, I will also send you a “final ingredient check”. This includes a list of all the foods included your recipe so far, so you can double check that you can source the ingredients easily, before the recipe is finalized.
Once the recipe is finalized, there is an additional fee if it requires ingredient changes if you are not able to source ingredients.
Before I finalize recipes and send out a recipe report, I send clients an “Ingredient Check”. This is a list of all the foods and supplements that would be included in the recipe. At this point, clients can request changes to the ingredient list for any reason so that the recipe is adjusted before it’s finalized.
Growth recipes for puppies also include further adjustments for growth, so that the recipe is appropriate throughout the growth process.
If you need an adjustment after the recipe report is complete, an additional fee would apply.
Recipes are formulated for a single pet, unless you are specifically requesting a pack or clowder recipe. Since the recipe has been formulated for a specific pet, it may not be appropriate to use for other animals.
