JustFoodForDogs is the world’s first dog kitchen with the single objective of increasing the quality and length of life for as many dogs as possible through a balanced, whole food diet.

With a team of boarded specialists in veterinary medicine and research on staff, every recipe is made in small batches and includes meats, whole grains and vegetables. All ingredients are 100% certified for human consumption by the USDA.
