Introducing Pet Diet Designer

Pet Diet Designer for Windows is nutrition software for dogs and cats. Our main focus is to provide an easy way for pet owners to home-prepare complete and balanced meals for their pets. 

Pet Diet Designer performs all the tedious calculations to determine the recommended allowance for 40+ nutrients, balanced specifically for each individual pet. The more information you enter about your pet, the more accurate Pet Diet Designer becomes. No more guesswork. No more agonizing over whether your pet is missing out on an important amino acid, fat, mineral or vitamin. Pet Diet Designer instantly tells you!

And if you feed more than one meal a day for your pet - Pet Diet Designer handles that too! All calculations are based on the National Research Council 2006 publication; "Nutrient Requirements of Dogs and Cats". So you can be assured that not only are your pets getting all the required nutrients, but that the nutrients are in the correct ratio.

When creating a recipe for your pet, Pet Diet Designer will typically perform thousands of calculations in mere seconds - a task that would be extremely difficult for a human to perform, no matter how knowledgeable about companion animal nutrition.

For Beginners

Pet Diet Designer is perfect for people who have been reluctant to feed homemade food for their cherished companion. Now you can confidently prepare compete and balanced, personalized meals knowing that your pet is getting the best possible nutrition that you can provide.
