As well as being cooked with 100% human-grade ingredients, all products are prepared in facilities that are inspected by the US Department of Agriculture. Its preparation technique is based on the sous-vide method, in which food is sealed in an airtight container and cooked in temperature-controlled water. As a result, its products retain a greater amount of vitamins and minerals than food cooked through other methods. Likewise, its products also offer 72% more protein than the market average.
Be aware, A Pup Above doesn’t offer prescription products, and its recipes are formulated for adult dogs, which means it should not be the exclusive meal choice for puppies under a year old.
The company doesn’t offer additional products such as snacks or toys.
Each of the company’s meals is available in 3lb or 7lb bags, with a 15% discount per pound if you purchase a 7lb bag. When you sign up for regular deliveries, there is also a 10% discount on 3lb bags and 25% discount on 7lb bags.

My 8-month-old Havanese is loving his pupalicious meals that he has been eating for about 4 months now. The variety is great. He can hardly wait for me to get it into his bowl. The automatic delivery is really convenient for me. Very happy with the excellent food, packaging and service! Lyda B
I have purchased loads of different forms of pet food, but every time my small female dog wouldn’t even touch it. This is the first time my girl has eaten food without question. [...] It is a huge relief being able to feed her a regular diet that’s healthy! Lauren M
