Today we are comparing two premium dog food companies—Nom Nom Now vs Just Food For Dogs—to see which choice is better. 

These brands don’t deliver your typical kibble—overprocessed food made from the cheapest, lowest quality ingredients.  Instead, they dish out gently cooked, human-grade ingredients your dog and vet will love. In fact, both brands employ pet nutritionists to make sure each recipe is complete and balanced with all of the nutrients your dog needs, so they can eat as well as you do.

We’ll compare the two brands in a variety of areas, such as ingredient quality, price, delivery options, and money-back guarantees. Let’s dive in.

Just Food For Dogs vs Nom Nom Now: Which fresh food is better?

Ingredient quality

As you probably realize by now, these brands don’t just offer your typical kibble made with meat meals and fillers. They’ve both made a commitment to using high-quality, human-grade ingredients—ones good enough for you to eat—and they leave out all the junk. No preservatives, fillers, meat meals, animal byproducts, or artificial flavors.

All meals from both brands are formulated by veterinary nutritionists to be complete and balanced, ensuring your dog has all of the essential nutrients for long-term feeding. The balanced nutrition is completed by adding a supplemental nutrition blend to each meal. (If you are looking for a brand that makes nutritionally balanced meals without the use of synthetic vitamins or minerals, try Raised Right Dog Food or, for a dry food option, Sundays Dog Food). Both Nom Nom and Just Food For Dogs cook their ingredients over low heat, so they maintain as much nutritional value as possible.

Nom Nom adds “natural flavor” to each of their recipes. This is a bit of a mystery since the composition of the “natural flavor” is unknown to the consumer. And it seems unnecessary as fresh food appears tantalizing enough on its own—my dog can attest. Despite this addition, it’s a solid choice in terms of ingredient quality.

Nom Nom states they use restaurant-quality ingredients from trusted sources in the U.S., and that they inspect and rigorously test their ingredients, so you know you are receiving safe food. Additionally, they make all attempts to sustainably source their ingredients and minimize food waste. All meals are cooked in their own U.S. kitchens. You can learn more about it in our full Nom Nom Dog Food review.

Similarly, Just Food For Dogs uses fresh, whole, restaurant-quality meats and locally sourced produce that are up to the standard for human consumption. Just Food For Dogs also uses organ meats to provide a healthy dose of protein and essential minerals and vitamins (like the B vitamins) in their natural form. 

Although we have seen the company’s transparency in how their food is made (their kitchens are open to the public, and we visited their Union Square location), they don’t give specifics as to where the “local produce” comes from. There was a Just Food For Dogs recall back in 2018 because the green beans purchased from a restaurant supply distributor were contaminated.

However, Just Food For Dogs really shines in the area of dog nutrition research. It’s the only fresh whole-food company to have nutrition and digestibility studies completed at a major university. The findings of these studies showed that Just Food For Dogs’ formulas improved specific health markers, are 40% more digestible than kibble, and produced 66% less fecal waste than premium kibble.

More specific information can be found in our Just Food For Dogs review, but the main takeaway is that real, human-grade ingredients are easier for your dog’s body to use and turn into energy, leaving less food to pass through as waste.

Nom Nom, on the other hand, enables you to do a little research on your own dog’s digestive health. But we’ll talk about that lower in this guide.

Winner: Tie

In our personal inspection of both brands, the meals looked and smelled appetizing, and you could see pieces of recognizable ingredients. From what each brand indicates about its meat being USDA approved and its produce sourced locally, either option would be a great choice. If we have to be picky, there is one thing we don’t love about each brand: We don’t love Nom Nom’s addition of natural flavor, and we don’t love that Just Food For Dogs isn’t clear on their food testing. Nevertheless, we stand by and would feed either option to our dogs.

Fresh meal options

Currently, Nom Nom offers four recipes, while Just Food For Dogs offers seven meal choices and usually has a few other interesting limited-time options as well. Lamb and venison are unique to Just Food For Dogs and an excellent choice for dogs with sensitivities to more common protein sources. Nom Nom has a pork recipe that Just Food For Dogs does not offer.

Nom Nom’s recipe options

All four of Nom Nom’s recipes have real meat as the first ingredient, which is what you should always look for. But it varies from Just Food For Dogs in that the second ingredient is always a plant. Some of the recipes contain eggs, but none contain organ meats, which you can find with Just Food For Dogs. Nom Nom maintains a minimum of 7% to 10% crude protein in their recipes, which is standard for fresh dog foods.

Nom Nom’s recipes are simple and short, using roughly five high-quality ingredients per meal before added nutrients. Currently, only the turkey recipe contains a grain (rice), but they steer clear of the additives many other grain-free foods include. Vitamins and minerals are added to create nutritionally complete and balanced meals.

Just Food For Dogs recipe options

Each recipe is created with a single protein source and most of the recipes contain organ meat, which provides essential B vitamins, among others. Protein levels range from 7% to 10%. All recipes are finished with the addition of a nutrient blend to ensure they are complete and balanced.

Each Just Food for Dogs recipe has unique benefits since each contains different ingredients. As a result, some meals are higher in protein, which benefits underweight, active, or working dogs. Other recipes are ideal for dogs who need a low-calorie, low-fat diet. There are also gluten-free and grain-free recipes, as well as options for dogs with food sensitivities.

If you’re not sure which one of their many choices to pick, try subscribing to the sampler, which includes all of the fresh options. They also offer limited-time fresh meals like a vegetarian option, Shepherd’s Pie, and All-Day Breakfast, which roll on and off the options list.

Winner: Just Food For Dogs

For the average healthy dog, either brand is a great choice. But Just Food For Dogs provides more protein options and varying nutritional profiles (e.g. low fat, support for large breeds, novel protein, etc.) to accommodate more dogs’ needs. If you want pork, Nom Nom will be your best option. If your dog has a specific health need or you need to feed a large breed dog, Just Food For Dogs may be a better choice.

Other products

Both companies offer a range of other products aside from their fresh, human-grade food.

Nom Nom

Beyond fresh food, Nom Nom offers a couple of gut health products.

Since dogs can’t communicate how they are feeling, we often can’t respond to an issue until after it’s a problem. Nom Nom’s microbiome testing kit allows you to take a proactive approach and get ahead of issues before they affect your pet. This testing kit can provide valuable insight into the flora of your dog’s (or cat’s) gut and, thus, their overall health.

To help with getting your pup back on track, Nom Nom offers two probiotic supplements: one for overall immune and digestive improvement and a second for dogs with an upset digestive system who need rebalancing. If you have cats, there is a gut health probiotic for them as well!

Nom Nom also offers healthy, single-ingredient dog treats, but as of the time of writing, they’re unavailable.

Nom Nom used to offer fresh cat food, but they’ve discontinued that product line.

Just Food For Dogs

No spare freezer space? Just Food For Dogs created a convenient shelf-stable meal, called PantryFresh, which is formulated with the same 100% human-edible ingredients as fresh food. It’s cooked at a low temperature to preserve its nutritional value and flavor. 

There are four traditional recipes (chicken, beef, turkey, and lamb) that are similar to the Fresh Frozen recipes. However, the ingredients vary slightly. Just Food For Dogs has also formulated an additional six vet-support recipes that address specific health issues. Some of these vet-support recipes require you to upload a veterinarian’s prescription, while others don’t.

In addition, Just Food For Dogs offers the following products:

  • 8 Treats: Single-ingredient and mixed-ingredient treats that vary in nutritional composition (e.g. low fat or high protein) to meet a variety of dogs’ needs.
  • 6 DIY Homemade kits: Nutrition supplements that complete and balance homemade food
  • 6 Supplements: Help support healthy bodies such as joint care, probiotics, and skin and allergy care.
  • Custom meals: For a fee, work directly with Just Food For Dogs to create a meal that meets your dog’s specific health needs.
  • JustCats Food & treat: For our feline friends, they’ve created a Fish & chicken meal and a Salmon snack—just for cats!

Winner: Nom Nom for gut health products, Just Food For Dogs for a wide variety of food products

Both brands offer products that not only feed your dog, but also products that help get your dog’s health back on track.

Nom Nom’s microbiome kit provides an insightful look into your dog’s microbiome (which is the root of many health issues when not functioning properly). This gives you the potential to identify problems before they manifest themselves.

Just Food For Dogs provides a broader variety of other products than Nom Nom. Of particular interest are the vet-support meals that nourish a dog’s specific needs, such as dog IBD.

Allergies & health issues

Both Just Food For Dogs and Nom Nom use the information you provide about your dog—such as your dog’s age, activity level, and any allergies—to choose the most beneficial recipes for your pup.

While both companies ask about health issues or allergies, neither is extensive in their inquiry. 

If you indicate that your dog has allergies, Nom Nom will likely offer their hypoallergenic option, Pork Potluck. Further health customization can be made in your dog’s profile after you’ve signed up for a paid plan. If you don’t see your pet’s health issue listed in the created health profile, Nom Nom welcomes you to work directly with their vet nutritionist and formulator, Dr. Justin Shmalberg, to see how Nom Nom can accommodate your dog’s needs. With Nom Nom continually researching dog health, it’s possible your dog may be eligible to participate in upcoming studies.

Just Food for Dogs is only a bit more thorough during onboarding by allowing you to enter the meat your dog is allergic to. They then provide alternative meat options, like novel proteins, and include specialized meal plans, such as a Joint and Skin Support recipe that offers hypoallergenic meat and carbohydrate sources.

In addition to providing novel protein meals, Just Food for Dogs also offers ten therapeutic recipes that are carefully formulated by vet specialists to assist dogs with complex health needs, such as:

  • Liver or kidney problems
  • Dogs who require low-fat, high-protein or easily digestible foods
  • Meals to support the joint needs of large breeds

Some of these meals require you to upload a vet prescription, while others are available OTC. Custom meals for specific needs are available for a fee. More information on prescription and therapeutic diets is available in our full review.

Winner: Just Food For Dogs

Nom Nom may be able to address easy dietary issues, like avoiding certain meats. However, Just Food For Dogs’ array of choices that accommodate minor to significant health problems is phenomenal. Just Food for Dogs also offers the certainty of a custom meal option, while Nom Nom is less specific about how they handle the need for a custom diet.

Customizability & supplemental meal plans

Supplemental meal plans are a great way for you to upgrade your dog’s nutrition while stretching your dollar. Mixing fresh, human-grade food with your dog’s current diet is a great way to balance cost and quality.

At this time, only Nom Nom offers a supplemental meal plan, a half portion that will save you around 40%. Nom Nom’s policies have recently changed so that now you can choose multiple recipes in each order, up to four recipes for large dogs and up to two for small dogs. You can also automatically rotate recipes in each delivery at no additional charge.

Just Food For Dogs only ships full boxes, so no partial meal plans are available. A simple solution could be to order a smaller box, or to elect to have full shipments delivered less frequently. You also could use this same method on a full plan from Nom Nom to save even more. 

Additionally, Just Food For Dogs only allows you to order one recipe per box; if you would like more than one recipe on hand, you’ll have to order another box.

Winner: Nom Nom

If you only want to use fresh food as a topper for your dog’s kibble, or if you want to rotate between recipes regularly, Nom Nom is the way to go. Of course, you can achieve this with any fresh food brand if you have enough freezer space to store unused food.

Price

The price you pay will depend on how much food your dog requires (based on their size, age, activity level, and more). And whether you choose full or partial portions. Dog owners with medium-sized dogs will pay an average of $5 to $6 per day for either choice.

With both brands, the price also varies somewhat by recipe. With Nom Nom, the price only appears to vary slightly based on meal choice. However, the prices can vary widely between recipes with Just Food For Dogs. Their Turkey & Whole Wheat Macaroni meal is the cheapest meal we have seen in fresh food, and yet they also have one of the most expensive meals: Venison & Squash.

Excluding the Venison & Squash meal, Just Food For Dogs appears to be easier on your wallet if you have a small dog. But, this difference in cost becomes less drastic with medium and large dogs. In fact, depending on the recipe, Nom Nom may be the cheaper option. If you have a large breed (50 lbs.+), Just Food Food Dogs offers a Large Breed Support meal, which keeps the cost of feeding fresh food to big dogs more attainable. You can see these price differences and ranges for various sized dogs and recipes in the table below.

Nom NomJust Food For Dogs
6-lb. Yorkie male$3.46 day / $24.25 week$1.61–2.13 day / $11.27–14.91 week
25-lb. Pembroke Welsh Corgi male$5.73 day / $40.12 week$4.81–7.09 day / $33.72–49.63 week
60-lb. Catahoula Cur male$10.56 / $73.98 week$6.99 per day (Large breed Support meal)
$8.03–11.07 day / $56.19–77.47 week
For the chart above, the same information was entered for both food delivery services, such as breed, age, health, and delivery location. The prices for Just Food For Dogs only include the traditional, fresh recipes.

Keep in mind that Nom Nom provides discounts for less frequent deliveries and multi-pet orders. And we’ve also secured a much larger introductory discount of 60% for Nom Nom.

Winner: Just Food For Dogs

Overall, we found Just Food For Dogs to be a bit cheaper for most dogs. But that depends on the size of your dog and the meals you choose. Medium-size dogs have similar pricing for both brands. The Just Food For Dogs’ Turkey & Whole Wheat Macaroni is the lowest price option, allowing for some dog owners to obtain fresh food that couldn’t afford it otherwise. The best way to see what kind of price you will pay for either service is to go through the brief onboarding survey with each brand—there’s no commitment necessary, and you don’t have to enter any credit card information.

Discounts

We do our best to work with brands to obtain substantial discounts, so our readers can try out our recommendations for less. Currently, you’re able to get 35% off your first purchase of Just Food For Dogs and 5% off every recurring purchase. But you have to subscribe to their Autoship program to get the discount. Nom Nom has offered The Dog Tale readers an exclusive 60% discount on their first purchase, which is among the largest discounts we’ve seen.

Winner: Nom Nom

With a huge discount of 60%, Nom Nom makes trying out their food easy.

Portioning

Both services have worked with vet nutritionists to develop algorithms that will calculate portion amounts for each dog based on their unique specifications like age, breed, and activity level. How they calculate the daily caloric need is different, so your dog’s calorie requirement may differ slightly from brand to brand. (I haven’t found this to vary much). How each brand portions each meal is different, too.

Just Food For Dogs stores their food in standard 18-oz. or 72-oz. packs. They’ll include portioning instructions in your box, and you will need to measure the correct serving size for your dog. To give you an idea of portion size, a 30-lb. dog would consume one 18-oz. package per day. I don’t find it difficult to measure approximate amounts, and if you should notice your dog gaining or losing weight, you can adjust accordingly.

Nom Nom, on the other hand, usually pre-portions each of your dog’s meals. They’ll eat one package per meal, so all you need to do is open the pack and pour it into their bowl. Small dogs may be the exception to this, receiving approximately two meals per package.

The pre-portioned meals save time and are beneficial to your dog, since there’s less risk of unintentional over- or under-feeding. If you notice unwanted weight gain or loss, contact Nom Nom to adjust the portions. Nom Nom may also gradually adjust portions and calorie amounts if your dog has a target weight or is transitioning from puppy to adulthood.

During your first week, Nom Nom will create transitional meals, which are half-portions you’ll mix with your dog’s food so they can gradually adjust to their new diet.

During my review of Just Food for Dogs, I noticed that their meals vary widely in caloric density, protein content, and fat. So, don’t be alarmed if your dog’s portion size is reduced for a calorically dense meal like beef or increased for a lower calorie meal like fish. This variety in nutritional composition can be beneficial for dogs who require certain nutrients, like high protein for working dogs or low fat for dogs with pancreatitis.

Winner: Nom Nom

Although serving either brand is simple, Nom Nom makes it easier by individually portioning most meals.

Packaging, sustainability & storage

We had no problems with either of our Nom Nom or Just Food For Dogs deliveries. Both companies strive to be both effective and sustainable in their shipping procedures. Food from both brands arrived quickly in well-insulated cardboard boxes and was vacuum-sealed in plastic packaging to keep it fresh without the use of preservatives or chemicals.

The cardboard shipping boxes are packed with eco-friendly insulation and plenty of dry ice to keep food cold until you arrive home on delivery day. Just Food For Dogs food is shipped already frozen, while Nom Nom is shipped fresh, though it usually freezes during shipping. Ours arrived fully frozen. You can store your dog’s next meal pack in the fridge for up to four days and unopened in the freezer for up to six months. Thaw food in the fridge 24 hours in advance.

Nom Nom packs their meals in slim packages, which are about the size of two or three stacked smartphones, depending on your dog’s portion size. Just Food For Dogs’ 18-oz. package is slightly larger, about the size of an iPad. They both have easy-peel seals. If you are ordering food for more than one dog, neither food pack is individually labeled with the dog’s name—for that level of customization, you’ll have to order from The Farmer’s Dog. However, you can obtain the feeding instructions within each box or in your online account.

With our first Nom Nom order, we received the food, a transition and feed guide, a sample of treats, and a small packet of “flavor flakes” (dried beef liver and bonito fish) to entice even the pickiest eaters. As promos change often, I cannot be certain if flavor flakes or treat samples will be offered in your box. We also ordered some supplements and gut health kits, but those now need to be purchased separately on Amazon (find links in the “Other products” section above). Nom Nom’s shipping materials, food packs, and insulating liners are all either compostable, recyclable, or made from recycled materials.

With our first Just Food For Dogs order, we didn’t receive anything besides the food. In an effort to be eco-friendly, Just Food For Dogs only ships full boxes of food. All packaging is recyclable and the insulation panels in the shipping boxes are compostable or dissolvable in running water.

Winner: Tie

We appreciate both companies’ efforts to reduce and reuse whenever possible. 

Shipping

Shipping isn’t all that different between the two brands. We found that they both offer free shipping and flexibility in the frequency of deliveries. You can adjust where you want the food sent, which is helpful when traveling. Both brands ship to anywhere within the continental U.S. You can skip, pause, or cancel any order as long as the order has not been processed.

After placing your first order, you’ll be shipped two weeks’ worth of food. After this trial period, you can adjust your shipping schedule. Nom Nom’s standard schedule is biweekly shipping and billing unless you change this frequency (from weekly to every four weeks). Nom Nom offers discounts for bulk orders and multiple pets. Once the food leaves the kitchen, Nom Nom will send you tracking information, so you know when the food arrives.

Just Food For Dogs delivers every four to five weeks, but you can adjust this from weekly to every eight weeks. They deliver Monday through Friday, but not on weekends.

If you need food pronto, Just Food For Dogs stocks their food at their own brick-and-mortar retail kitchens, at Pet Food Express (California), at Petco locations nationwide, and inside certain veterinary clinics and hospitals. You need to order online and select “Free Local Pickup” at checkout to see if there’s anything nearby.

Just Food For Dogs also offers one-time orders without a subscription. However, we recommend the Autoship program as you get free shipping, save 35% on your first order, and an additional 5% on recurring orders (and you’ll never run out of food!). If you do choose to make a one-time purchase, you’ll pay a flat $10 fee for every order.

Winner: Just Food For Dogs, but there’s not much difference.

Both brands offer free shipping with a variety of options. Just Food For Dogs offers a longer time in-between shipments, and it also offers the option to pick up your food at a local store, although receiving the shipments at home is easier. You really can’t go wrong with either choice.

Nom Nom vs Farmer’s Dog vs Just Food For Dogs

The Farmer’s Dog is another top-notch meal delivery service for dogs. It creates wholesome, human-grade dog food that our dog loves. We like that their food packages are individually labeled with your dog’s name and feeding instructions, which is a huge help if you have multiple dogs. We also like that 100% of The Farmer’s Dog packaging is biodegradable or recyclable, and the brand offers a ton of shipping flexibility, making it one of the most sustainable options available.

Learn more in our The Farmer’s Dog review, or compare it against your other options in our Nom Nom vs Farmer’s Dog and Just Food For Dogs vs Farmer’s Dog comparison guides.

Bottom line

Both Just Food For Dogs and Nom Nom check the box for creating premium, healthy dog food. You really can’t go wrong with either choice. I feel comfortable feeding my dog either option.

It boils down to the finer details; maybe that’s the price, recipe options, grain-inclusive or grain-free choices, options for puppies, portion size, or something else entirely.

For our small dogs, Just Food For Dogs is cheaper than Nom Nom. However, that begins to change with medium and large dogs depending on your recipe. I like that Nom Nom individually portions their meals; it makes my kids’ chore of feeding the dog foolproof. 

Nom Nom also provides the microbiome testing kit and probiotics, which may provide answers about your dog’s digestive system and more. But, if you have a serious health issue to address, check out Just Food For Dogs vet-support recipes. Want to compare these brands against other options? Check out the comparison guides below.
