The coronavirus has left us trying to #socialdistance, #flattenthecurve, and not #loseourminds while in whatever version of quarantine we find ourselves in, and one way to do that is to avoid making excessive trips to stores in favor of leaning on meal delivery services and grocery deliveries. If you’re a dog owner, you might also want to look into a personalized dog food delivery service — all of the recommended companies listed here are still open and able to help you out.
We’re not just talking about a pet parent getting their pet food delivered from pet food companies. Finding the best dog food delivery services can be challenging, to say the least, as there are so many meal delivery options to choose from and so many opinions on the “best way” to optimize the nutrition, ingredients and vitamins and minerals in your pets’ meal plan. Do you choose grain-free dog food, raw dog food, homemade dog food or plain old dry dog food? Do you choose kibble or wet food? If you’re struggling to find food that fits your fur baby’s needs, we’re going to break it down for you. And we implore you, look carefully as many of them, including Spot and Tango and NomNomNow, have big first-time order discounts — you can get as much as 30% off your total cart.

Spot and Tango
For pet parents who are all about farm-to-table food and the health and well-being of their dog, Spot and Tango might be a perfect food pick. The human-grade dog food is made from locally farmed fresh ingredients in New York, in small batches with no artificial additives, preservatives or fillers in the food. The fresh dog food delivery recipes are formulated by veterinary nutritionists and come in preportioned packages (determined by your dog’s age, weight and lifestyle) that are vacuum-sealed for freshness. The dog food arrives frozen and just needs to be defrosted before serving. You’ll get 50% off your first order of dog food and have a two-week trial period to test whether this meal delivery service works for you. If you decide to cancel in that time period, you’ll get your money back.
Frequency and pricing: Weekly delivery; $2 per meal and up, depending on your dog’s age, weight and breed. You can snag 50% off your first box with promo code CNET50.
Fresh, preportioned meals
It’s pretty universally accepted that fresh food is better for you than processed food and many pet owners believe the same holds true for pet food. If you prefer to feed your furry friends fresh-made meals, Nom Nom is the closest you can get to homemade food. The company sends you perfectly portioned, fresh pet food made from restaurant-quality ingredients and tailored to your pet’s size, age and weight. It currently offers four recipes for dogs and two for cats, as well as supplements and treats.
Frequency and pricing: Weekly, biweekly or monthly deliveries; $96 to $328 per month for dogs, depending on dog size, and $245 to $256 per month for cats. Save 20% on your first order.
Balance is a key part of any diet — including your dog’s diet! That’s why Pet Plate offers balanced dog food recipes with all the right nutrients for a good diet, designed by vets. The company uses USDA meat and fresh food to create precooked, preportioned meals for feeding your dog, so all pet parents have to do is open the container and plate up the food for their dog. There are four different fresh recipes available — chicken, beef, turkey and lamb — and you can even heat the food up in the microwave if your dog is fussy about cold food.
Frequency and pricing: Weekly deliveries; $2.50 to $19 per day, depending on your dog’s health, age, weight and breed. Save 30% off your first order at checkout……….Read More>>
