Real Custom Pet Food

The term "custom pet food" is a buzzword in the pet food industry. While many fresh pet food companies claim to offer customization through online algorithms, very few actually work directly with your veterinarian or veterinary nutritionist to create fresh food tailored to your pet's specific dietary needs. Paul's Custom Pet Food does.

If your companion needs a special diet due to a disease, allergy, or other medical condition, we collaborate with veterinarians, veterinary nutritionists, and canine/feline diet formulators to prepare fresh, prescription food specific to your pets’ unique dietary needs.

*Veterinarian approval or recipe is required for all therapeutic diets; no exceptions!

How to Order

  • Step 1

    Consult with a veterinarian or veterinary nutritionist to determine your pet's unique dietary needs and have a custom, fresh prescription recipe approved.

  • Step 2

    If you don't have a veterinarian or nutritionist who will prescribe a fresh therapeutic diet, we can refer you to one. The experts below have over 100 years of combined experience and are a great place to start.

  • Step 3

    After we receive your pet's recipe, our team will carefully source the freshest ingredients and prepare the recipe according to the precise instructions of the prescribing veterinarian or nutritionist.

  • Step 4

    Once the recipe is prepared, we will ship or deliver it directly to you with clear instructions on how to store and serve it to your pet.

To get started, please fill out your contact information below. If you already have a recipe, please attach it. If you are working with a veterinarian or nutritionist, please provide their name and contact info. If you do not have an expert in pet nutrition to work with, we recommend: 1. the nutrition specialists on this page; 2. the website,; or 3. a consultation with Animal Diet Formulators.

We recommend the following Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionists if your pet has special dietary needs due to a medical condition.

Please contact them directly to arrange a personalized consultation and formulation of a recipe that we can prepare for you and your companion.
