Fresh Custom Dog and Cat Food


Custom pet food is a buzz term in today’s pet food lexicon. Fresh pet food companies promise customization using online algorithms but few, if any, work personally with your veterinarian and/or veterinary nutritionist to prepare fresh food based on your pet’s unique dietary needs. Paul's Custom Pet Food does. See below for details.

Why Custom Pet Food?

Your companion needs a special diet due to a disease, allergy, or other medical condition.

PCPF works directly with veterinarians, veterinary nutritionists, and canine/feline nutritionists to prepare fresh, prescription food specific to your pets’ unique dietary needs as determined by a veterinary nutritionist or canine/feline nutritionist.

Veterinarian approval is required for all therapeutic diets. 

How do I obtain custom pet food for my dog or cat?


We’ll Work With Your Own Veterinarian

Bring us a recipe approved by your veterinarian or nutritionist and we will source ingredients and prepare food for your companion.

Veterinary Nutritionist

We’ll Refer You to a Veterinary Nutritionist

If you do not have a veterinarian or nutritionist able to create a custom recipe, we work with and recommend the veterinarians listed below, who together have over 100 years of animal nutrition experience.


Prince really loves the food, both the chicken and now the turkey. I so appreciate that you can provide such a vital service to us !

Please note that we are not veterinarians or pet nutritionists, nor can we diagnose an illness or prescribe a diet for your pet without the input of a veterinarian or nutritionist. We will make suggestions for your pet based on the information you provide us. If you are not currently working with a pet professional, we recommend you consult with a veterinarian if you have any concerns about your pet’s health. We will not contradict the advice of your pet professional, especially if medications or other treatments are being used. Paul’s Custom Pet Food is not responsible for any charges for consultations with a veterinarian or nutritionist incurred by you pursuant to the formulation of custom meals.

While we have had excellent results with custom diets, we cannot guarantee a custom-formulated meal will treat or cure any condition. We recommend all changes in diet be made under the direction and supervision of your veterinarian. We create recipes by hand in our human-food kitchen according to relevant laws for human food. We are not responsible for any injuries or damages with respect to your supplementation, food preparation, handling, storage, or feeding method.
