Nothing beats the smell of home-cooked food. Don’t you agree?
So, why is your furkid eating processed food?
Just like us hoomans, your furkid’s health will improve when you switch to fresh, healthy and nutritious food. We here at The OMG have rounded up 7 companies that provide fresh, cooked food for your furkid. We would like to thank all of them for allowing us to feature them in our article.
Let’s start the list in no particular order…
We’ll start off the list in East Malaysia where we found an establishment called Paw Paw. If you live in Sarawak or just visiting, drop by Paw Paw to check out their menu. They are dedicated to making the life of your furkid happier and more meaningful by providing the healthiest and most nutritious meals!
Founded by a Pet Nutritionist, these guys here know how to create a balanced diet. They do not use any filler, preservatives or added salt, and all the hand-picked ingredients are fresh and more importantly, human-grade food. Their meals are prepared by cooking the ingredients at the minimum allowable temperature. This method preserves the natural nutritional value of the food.

Doggy Bag Malaysia
The people over at Doggy Bag Malaysia believe if good health in humans begin with good nutrition, why should it be any different for your furkid? To get the ball rolling, they got their recipes to reflect the standards of the American Association of Animal Feed Control (AAFCO).
They do not use any preservatives, flavouring, meat by-products, artificial colouring, corn and my favourite, no mystery ingredients you wouldn’t eat yourself. You will be able to identify the ingredients right out of the pack. They use only fresh ingredients in their servings, therefore they prepare the meal only when your place an order. Your furkid will always get freshly made food!
But before you go through their well designed and easy to understand menu, please take some time to read their story. You will understand where all their commitment comes from.

Evo Pets Kitchen
Evo passed away after just 7 years, causing his owner, Bryant, to find a cause for his cancer which led to his death. He eventually concluded that the commercial dog food he had been feeding was the likely cause. He believes that feeding kibbles to your pet is like consuming fast food daily. This gave him the reason to become a Certified Pet Food Nutrition Specialist and to start Evo Pets Kitchen to provide healthier, nutritious, wholesome and home-cooked food to doggos.
Additionally, they give back and support Second Chance Animal Society on a monthly basis. If you live in Klang Valley, they will deliver right to your doorstep. You can browse through their menu here. Due to the current EMCO, they are not allowed to operate, but they hope to resume operations as soon as they are able to.
Seeing how Bryant is a Certified Pet Food Nutrition Specialist, you can contact him for enquiries, advice and tips. He is super friendly and is more than happy to help you, so don’t be shy. You might learn something new to improve your pet’s diet. Drop him a message on WhatsApp at 6016-383 6651 or PM on Facebook.

Penangites, we didn’t forget about you. Eeppe-pet is a company in Penang that provides cooked food for your pets.

They only use ingredients that is also consumed by hoomans. Furthermore, they don’t include any preservatives, additives and fillers.
Now, if you look at their menu, you will see meals that can also be served at a hooman restaurant! Dishes like Stir Fry Celery and Yam Rice, Hawaiian Fried Rice, Coconut Curry Rice, and Ginger and Sesame Oil Rice have resemblance to hooman foods.
