Custom Pet Food

Fresh, Healthier Food for Dogs + Cats

Handmade with ingredients you know by people you trust

Food, Not Feed

Why Make the Switch to FRESH Food?

Health Benefits

It seems silly to ask why we should feed fresh, real, whole food to our pets. When we as humans eat well, we feel well. The same is true for our furry friends.

Real Food

A whole-food diet made up of high-quality meats, vegetables, fruits, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats is more natural than overly processed feed.

Ingredients You Know

At Paul’s Custom Pet Food, we take sourcing seriously. Many of the ingredients in our recipes are sourced from farms within 50 miles of our commercial kitchen in Northwest Connecticut. 

Discover Our Story

Who we are

It wasn’t until our late dog, Hunter, contracted cancer at 3 years old that our eyes were opened to the realities of pet food — that what we assumed was food is, in fact, something else altogether: feed.

Turns out, most commercial dog and cat food includes ingredients not fit for human consumption or is processed in such a way it cannot be defined as food (despite what the label says).

“Why?” you might ask. It is a good question — one we never asked before Hunter got sick, and one we have not stopped asking since. The answer led us to form Paul’s Custom Pet Food with only one goal in mind — to make fresh, ethically sourced, gently cooked, and wholesome food — not feed — for your companion animals.

The story begins with Hunter’s diagnosis…

Custom Dog and Cat Food

Healthy Pets are Our Passion

Custom pet food is a buzz term in today’s pet food world. Fresh pet food companies promise customization using online algorithms but none work personally with your veterinarian and/or a pet nutritionist to prepare fresh pet food based on your pet’s unique dietary needs the way we do.

Where Can You Find Paul’s Custom Pet Food?

I just took Enzo to the vet for his yearly exam and she said he looked great! His eyes, coat, and teeth look amazing and his weight is perfect. She asked what I was feeding him and I told her all fresh food from PCPF. She said Enzo was lucky to have such a great diet. Thank you so much for your amazing product!

I’ve been a fan of Paul’s Custom Pet Food since my first conversation with Paul and our first container of food 6 years ago. Darla is healthier and more vibrant than before eating Paul’s food, and simply loves the food and treats (and Paul). I love the integrity of the company and the sourcing of the ingredients. Bravo!
