About

Just add water to PetMix Chicken Dinner: our dehydrated mix of real, human-grade chicken, fruits, and vegetables. Your dog will be eating a homemade meal in minutes.

Why should I prepare fresh food for my dog?

Many commercial foods are filled with fattening fillers and allergens, to downright deadly and disgusting things that seriously compromise your pet’s health.

Common ingredients include:

  • Propylene glycol – Added as a sweetener. Used in antifreeze solutions, in hydraulic fluids, and as a solvent
  • Cellulose: just another name for sawdust 
  • By-product meal: bones, blood, lungs, ligaments, feathers, etc. 
  • Animal digest: can refer to roadkill, euthanized pets or animals dead, dying, or diseased prior to slaughter 

I’m interested, but how do I know what my dog needs to eat?

PetMix already includes all the necessary nutrition dogs need, in one bag: Chicken, Whole Egg, Apples, Carrots, Flax, Kelp, Chicken Liver, Bananas, Blueberries, Broccoli, Parsley, Ginger, Celery, Lettuce, Watercress, Spinach, Coconut Oil, and Probiotics.

All of are ingredients are sourced in the USA.

Many of our tasty ingredients!
Many of our tasty ingredients!

Compare our list of ingredients with what you see on your dog’s food. Which would you prefer to eat? We’re sure your dog would agree.

I don’t have time to cook for myself!

PetMix Chicken Dinner makes it quick and easy to prepare fresh meals for your dog. Add water, stir, and it’s ready. Even waiting for the microwave to finish heating your food takes longer!

Isn’t cooking for dogs expensive?

Not necessarily. PetMix is comparable or costs less per pound than many top-notch premade dog foods.

We need your support

We’ve had steady growth and even have been featured in BarkBox several times — a huge help to our small business — but we still need backing to invest in mixing and packaging equipment and improve our current packaging. We want to keep our preparation in house at our Michigan facility, to make sure quality is never compromised.

  • The right machinery will help us keep costs low and enable us to meet growing customer demand. We currently package every bag of PetMix by hand, which is unsustainable for ever-increasing order volumes. 
  • New packaging will provide customers with the vital information they need when making a decision about their dog’s food.

Thank you!

Thank you from our family!

Dog’s Health Improves 

By Aaron K.

I have two Blue Heeler mix dogs, 3 and 4 yrs. Both have lost weight to where they should be and are healthier and full of energy. 

Very Good Review By Vet 

By Pat S.

I have bought both PetMix Original and Nut & Cherry. I took PetMix into the vet for him to check out, and he said it was excellent! I am passing out samples to Bella’s friends; they love it.  

My Dog Loves It!! 

By Shauna

I have a 13-year-old Pitbull, and he loves the food. As soon as I open the lid, he comes running. When I make it, he sits there watching. He’s starting to have some healthy issues, and this food seems to help him. Since I’ve taken him off grains, he doesn’t lick like he used to. I’m also not picking up as much waste, so I know he’s absorbing the nutrients better. I just wish I knew about all your products sooner. You’ll be my first buy when I get a new puppy.  

The Best Dog Food On The Market 

By Fran D.

My two Dachshunds let me know when it is time to eat. They are more alert, and their coats are softer. It is so easy to make a batch, and I know it’s fresh and how long it lasts. I don’t need any additives, since it is a complete food. Thank you for a wonderful product.  

Amazing Transformations!  

By Susan 

My five Chihuahuas have been on PetMix Original or Nut & Cherry. One of the seniors, who has always had a problem with weight, has dropped two pounds without reducing her food intake. Another senior, who has Valley Fever (disease indigenous to Arizona), has exhibited a steady improvement in her overall condition and vitality. All of them go nuts for the food every time and for either variety. My seniors are as frisky as pups again! We couldn’t be happier with the food. The delivery has always been extremely fast and the orders correct. Keep up the good work! We’ll be customers for life.

Risks and challenges

We've been in business since 2004, which is long enough to know there are always unforeseen challenges. Thankfully, that decade under our belt has also helped us know how to handle obstacles and prevent delays.

Because of this experience, we feel confident in our ability to successfully launch PetMix Dinners across the U.S. Our network of industry contacts is strong, and our research for the best and most cost-effective solutions is always ongoing — meaning our customers always get the highest quality at good prices.
