ARE FURRMEALS RIGHT FOR MY DOG?
Yes! Each FurrMeals recipe contains complete a meal that is crafted with whole foods that are considered to be the best for dogs of all age groups and weight. Feeding your dog the best quality human grade food is the best thing that you can do as a responsible pet parent as it will keep your dog healthy and happy for a longer lifespan.
I ALREADY GIVE HOME COOKED MEALS TO MY DOG. WHY SHOULD I BUY FURRMEALS?
Research shows that about 80-90% of the home prepared meals that are given to pets are not completely balanced for their nutritional needs. Home prepared food for pets is especially deficient in proteins, vitamins, minerals and amino acids – all of which are critical for the health of your pet.
If you do want to give your pet your own home cooked meals, we would recommend that you make the meals separately for your pet with their complete nutritional requirements in mind. Never give them the food that is cooked for your family as it contains spices and fats that are not recommended for pets.
Alternatively, you can go for FurrMeals – the most convenient and tasty way to provide complete nutrition to your pet.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FURRMEALS FOR MY DOG?
Home cooked wholesome meals using human grade ingredients with zero preservatives, additives and by-products are great for your pet’s overall health, energy levels, and long life.
In addition to the above, some of our happy customers have also stated the following benefits for their pets after shifting to FurrMeals:
- Increased energy levels
- Shinier coat and healthier skin
- Better weight management
- More excited and pleasurable meal times.
- Reduced shedding
- Reduced bad breath
IS THE MEAL PACKET ENOUGH FOR MY DOG?
Yes! Each FurrMeals pack that you receive contains the right quantity and calorie based on your dog’s weight. Each meal is formulated to meet the nutritional requirement of your pet as per AAFCO Guidelines for a single meal.
WHAT IS AAFCO?
AFFCO stands for Association of American Feed Control Officials. It is a non-profit association that sets guidelines and standards for both animal and pet feed in America for complete nutrition. AAFCO is internationally recognized and Pet food manufacturers all over the world follow AAFCO guidelines.
HOW MUCH OF THE PACK DO I FEED MY DOG?
Each meal pack contains the exact amount that you should feed your dog in every meal. The amount of food that you should feed your dog has been determined based on the weight of the dog that you have mentioned and the nutritional requirement of the particular weight of healthy dog. Every meal should therefore constitute of a complete packet.
HOW DO I SERVE FURRMEALS TO MY DOG?
Thaw the packet in the refrigerator prior to serving. You can shift the packet from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator compartment one day prior to serving. This will ensure that the food is properly thawed. It can then be served cold or slightly warmed based on your dog’s preference.
HOW WILL I STORE THE FURRMEALS PACKETS?
You will get a weekly supply of the meals. Once you get the meal packets, store them in the freezer. Choose the meal that you want to serve to your dog the next day and let it thaw in the refrigerator compartment of your fridge overnight.
HOW LONG CAN I STORE THE FURRMEALS PACKS?
If kept frozen at the right temperature and in hygienic conditions, FurrMeals packets can be stored for up to 3 month. However we recommend that you use the meals within a week of delivery. We believe that your pet should have food as fresh as possible and therefore we make weekly deliveries even when you subscribe for our monthly plan.
HOW DO I WARM THE FURRMEALS PACK FOR MY DOG?
If your dog prefers slightly warm food then you might consider warming the FurrMeals packet. You can either place the packet in boiling water for 1 minute or microwave the packet for 40 seconds to 1 minute. Make sure that you stir the content after opening the pouch and before serving it to your dog to make sure that there is no uneven heating and areas of very hot food in the packet.
IS THERE A PARTICULAR ORDER IN WHICH TO SERVE THE RECIPES TO MY DOG?
No! It is completely your choice. You can choose to give the same recipe till you finish all the packets of the same and then move to a new one or keep alternating. It is your and your pet’s choice.
WHILE MOST OTHER MEAL SUPPLIERS ONLY GIVE ONE RECIPE, WHY DOES FURRMEALS HAVE MULTIPLE RECIPES?
We believe that it is not only very boring to have the same food at every meal time but also very difficult to provide complete nutrition in every meal. Our recipes are designed in such a way that your pet gets complete nutrition overtime. By adding variety we make sure that none of the essential nutrients are missed out from your pet’s meal plan.
CAN I USE FURRMEALS AS A TOP-UP TO MY PET’S EXISTING MEAL?
Yes! You can use FurrMeals as a top up to your dog’s existing meal. Add it to dry kibbles or any other food that you are giving to your pet. This will add more taste and nutrition to their existing meals. However, we strongly recommend that you use FurrMeals as a whole meal for your pet as the recipes and meals are specially designed to gives complete nutrition to your pet.
IF MY DOG DOES NOT LIKE ANY OF THE RECIPES CAN I REPLACE IT WITH ANOTHER ONE WHILE ORDERING?
Yes! If your furry does not like the taste or does not seem to enjoy one of our recipes you can replace it with one of the other recipes in the next order. We have kept our plans flexible and customizable because we want to make every meal enjoyable and stress free for both you and your furry.
SHOULD I ASK MY VET ABOUT SWITCHING TO FURRMEALS?
Although we can assure you that we are using the best quality ingredients that are perfect for your pet but we still recommend that you inform your vet every time you plan to change your pet’s meal plan. We suggest that you provide your vet with the following information about FurrMeals to help make an informed decision:
- FurrMeals are prepared using fresh human grade ingredients.
- Each meal is specially formulated as per AAFCO guidelines.
- FurrMeals are freshly cooked in small batches and packed in food grade vacuum packets.
- Meals are made fresh to order and not precooked and stored.

HOW DO I TRANSITION MY PET FROM THE EXISTING MEALS TO FURRMEALS?
It is always advised to transition slowly to a new diet from an existing one. For the first 2 weeks, give your furry FurrMeals only during the morning meal timeand continue with the existing meal for the evening meal. Your pet’s stomach will settle down on the fresh home cooked meal during this period. After 2 weeks, if your pet has adjusted well to FurrMeals, shift to it completely.

We would try to make a route change to make your deliver at the time you are available. In case that is not possible, please make arrangements with your neighbor to receive and store the packets in the freezer till you arrive.
