Overall Rating: 9 / 10 (Excellent)

PetPlate may not have the number of menu options that many of its competitors do, but there's no question the company has some of the healthiest dog food out there. PetPlate's recipes are specially formulated by veterinarians and proven to support a healthy weight and digestion, as well as provide improved energy and a healthier coat. But where the company really scores big is with the flexibility it offers. PetPlate allows customers the convenience of combining its deliveries with their own dog food, and also makes it easier than most to pause, alter, or cancel the service. Any pet owner will know this is important considering vacations, or sudden changes of schedule that are always set to come up in life.

PetPlate Menu Options

Menu Options - 9 / 10

PetPlate offers two solid menu options, one beef and one turkey. Both come with sweet potatoes and a variety of vegetables. PetPlate's ingredients are verified and the recipes are AAFCO-compliant. Most other original recipe delivery services we evaluate, however, have more options than two. PetPlate does allow you to stagger the deliveries in order to combine their dishes with other food. The company prides itself on wholesome ingredients that contain no by-products, rendered meats, or preservatives.
