FAQ | Nutrivore - Fresh, nutritious meals & healthy treats for your best friend


How do we make the switch to Nutrivore?

Upset tummies are no fun, for dogs or their humans. So, we start all new pack members with a transition week, where the amount of Nutrivore food mixed in with your dog’s old food is gradually increased until you have one very happy dog on 100% fresh food. It’s super simple and we’ll send you instructions when you sign up.

Do I need to consult my vet before switching to Nutrivore?

Our meals have been formulated by board-certified veterinary nutritionists to ensure that they are nutritionally balanced and complete for healthy adult dogs, who should do very well on a fresh diet. If in doubt, it’s always a good idea to speak to your vet, especially if your dog has any medical condition or dietary requirements.

Can’t I make my own home-cooked dog food?

Cooking fresh food for your dog is time-consuming and can be expensive. More importantly, without the addition of added vitamins and minerals your home-cooked meals will not be nutritionally complete (no, adding a multivitamin is not a fix!). Serious health issues can arise from feeding your pet meals that are deficient (or excessive) in certain nutrients.

Our board-certified veterinary nutritionists have formulated our recipes and feeding amounts to ensure that each customised Nutrivore meal is nutritionally balanced and complete for your dog.

How much does it cost?

It’s our aim to offer fresher, cleaner pet food that is also affordable. With no retailers or middlemen, we put your dollar to better use on high quality ingredients, and our customised meal plans mean you’re only paying for what your dog needs.

Whats the big deal with ingredients?

You might be shocked to learn what really goes into commercial pet foods. Preservatives, chemicals, fillers, mystery meats & by-products are just some of the potentially harmful nasties that most dogs are being fed on a daily basis.

But not our pack! Nutrivore meals are made with high-quality fresh ingredients that are fit for humans. Each ingredient has been selected for it’s nutritional qualities, so our recipes include all of what your dog needs, and none of what they don’t.

How does delivery work?

Once your order is confirmed we will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery time. We’ll reserve the same delivery slot for your recurring deliveries, so there’s no interruption to your dog’s meal plan. With each delivery you will receive two weeks worth of daily meals.

How do I store the food?

Your delivery will arrive frozen and should be stored in the freezer. We like to keep a few in the fridge and replace them with one from the freezer each day. How you flow is up to you, but treat your dog’s meal packs as you would fresh human food - because basically that’s what it is.

Do I have to prepare anything?

No - feeding time should be fun and easy! Dogs don’t need their food hot, but warming food brings out aromas to excite even the fussiest eaters and can make digestion easier. Simply place a sealed pouch in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes to bring it up to room temperature. Alternatively, our food grade pouches can be microwaved - just cut the bag open before and remember to check for hot spots before feeding.
