RedMoon Custom PetFood Website

| April 10, 2010 | 16 Comments

RedMoon Pet Food LogoFloppycats.com was asked to try out RedMoon Custom PetFood.  Although I am not a huge fan of dry food because of the by-products and what not, I do see it’s purpose and understand that it is needed.  So I am willing to support any dry food that is grain, gluten, wheat, corn, rice and soy free. 

Did She Say Dry Food?

Besides, the Charlie monster totally LOVES dry food (maybe because he doesn’t get it very much).  So when we were asked to review a sample of the food, I decided to go for it.  

The food hasn’t arrived yet, but OH MY GOSH!  The website is SOOO cool.  Even if you aren’t going to order food – you’ve gotta check out their website.  First, though, let me explain what RedMoon Custom PetFood is.  

RedMoon Pet Food makes a new generation of pet foods that allow pet owners to custom design the right formula for their pet and have it delivered to their door!  How convenient and wonderful is that?  

All RedMoon recipes, these are grain, gluten, wheat, corn, rice and soy free.  

How RedMoon’s Website Works:

1.    Log onto www.redmoonpetfood.com – choose “Cat Food” or “Dog Food” – we chose “Cat Food” – duh.

2.    Use the pet food creator to select the base formula, energy level, kibble size and supplements ideal for your dog or cat.  Charlie is getting the Salmon Formula because his momma wants him to get Omega 3.

5.    Have it delivered to your door.  

Best of all – it was SOOO easy!  I really wish this would have been around when Rags was alive because of the kidney/liver supplement that you can add.  Rags loved dry food too, so it would have been perfect!  

What’s even more beautiful?  Once you have an account with them, you can:  

  • Reorder mixes in seconds

Chicken & Turkey Feast – Chicken and turkey protein with no grains, no fruits, no vegetables.  The formula is grain free, gluten free, soy free, rice free and wheat and corn free.

I hope RedMoon Pet Food comes out with a wet food line!  

About RedMoon PetFood Fresh, Inc.

RedMoon gets its name from the two full autumn moons that show a red color – the Harvest Moon and the Blood Moon (aka Hunter’s Moon). The significance of these moons is that when they are present in the fall, there is about an extra 30 minutes of light for farmers to finish their harvesting and for predators to track their prey. The two moons exemplify RedMoon’s philosophy of using harvest fresh ingredients and fresh meats to produce the best possible nutrition for our customers – dogs and cats.  

RedMoon is the world’s only pet food producer that invites pet owners to participate in the process of creating food specific to their pet’s needs, and having each custom blended bag delivered directly to their door. To uphold their commitment to using locally sourced ingredients, RedMoon operates two processing facilities, one in Brainerd, Minnesota and the other in Crossfield, Alberta, Canada. Every bag of RedMoon is traceable with a manufacturing batch code and date.  

Each RedMoon base kibble recipe is slow cooked in small batches to preserve more of the essential nutrients pets need to thrive. RedMoon formulas have been developed and tested by a Natural Pet Nutritionist along with a team of PhDs in Animal Science. Plus, every bag of RedMoon is traceable because it’s imprinted with a unique manufacturing batch code and date. 

What do you think about this idea?  Do you think you’ll order some of this food?

    Great info! I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  2. Carla Elick says:

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are actually fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the web, it is a great change of pace to read a blog like yours instead.

  3. Priscila Riedell says:

    Because of reading your blog, I decided to create my own. I had never been interested in keeping a blog until I saw how interesting yours was, then I was inspired!

    I just checked out the Redmoon website, it is really nifty. This is a great idea for animals! Thanks for choosing to product test their food, although I am not adopting my own Ragdolls for a while, I really rely on your website for up to date information and helpful products and choices. Redmoon is one I am definitely going to remember for the future, along with many others 🙂

    • admin says:

      yes, i’m excited about it. they are also working on a new formula, which i am excited about. love the customization because i could have used it with rags.

      • Melody says:

        Oops, I just replied to your other post and didn’t see the “Reply” function – accidentally forgot about it! I had one thought about Redmoon’s customized food, I wonder if it is possible to constantly order the 2.5 lbs $8.99 trial size instead of the other sizes? I suppose I should contact Redmoon with that question in the future. I wonder if they will end up creating their own wet food version too!

          Melody,

          I have asked RedMoon to respond, as I am not sure, but I would think so.

          Hi Melody,
          Thanks for your inquiry. The trial size of 2.5 LB is meant to be just the initial trial bag and is not meant to be a regular item to be purchased. RedMoon looses money on every trial bag that we send out in order to give our customers the ability to have a lower risk trial. So you can understand why we would like to keep the trial bags as the initial purchase only . If, in the future trial bags become regular repeated purchases by individual customers then we would be forced to raise the price of the trial offer. Melody, thank you for your inquiry and I hope that we did not present our pricing in a confusing way.

          • admin says:

            Jason,

            In our e-mails, I believe you have talked about certain promos and discounts that you will offer over time to loyal customers, right? So perhaps that’s where the savings come in – well, and not to forget the savings you get from not having to deal with going to the store!

            Jenny

          • Melody says:

            Hi Mr. Bailey,
            Thank you for clarifying that, your website is not at all confusing in any fashion, it was just a question that I had wondered about as I browsed through Redmoon. I think it is very generous already of Redmoon to offer free shipping as well as a trial bag to begin with, including two free supplements. I hope to purchase customized food from Redmoon in the future once I have my own cat(s) since owners are able to know what is exactly in their cat’s food. Hopefully Redmoon considers wet food then too!

  5. Jason Bailey says:

    Hi Melody,

    RedMoon also plans to have discounts and promotions available very frequently. Even today, by using the promo code floppycats at our checkout, gives a 5% discount. Thanks for asking for a wet food. We have been bombarded with requests for wet food. This means that we better get working on bringing a wet food to market. This will take sometime to develop and test but we started working on it. Thanks again Melody!

    • Melody says:

      That’s great! And it is great to hear that Redmoon is a success since so many requests were received! At first I did not know that certain ingredients were harmful to cats until I began my obsessive research on Ragdolls a few months ago and ultimately learned more and more about cats! I was able to really dive into the healthy nutrition for cats thanks to floppycats though, since one of the first articles I read was about homemade treat recipes and raw diets and such! It was all very interesting to me ^^ I learned a lot from floppycats!

    I prepare all of my dog’s meals from fresh, natural sources, however I also leave out dry kibble for when he’s hungry. I have bought every brand and type of dry dog food over the years and our dog simple turned his nose up at them (even organic and Orijen etc) until we received a sample of Red Moon! Our dog has eaten his Red Moon custom blend every day since this spring. I asked the company why my dog thinks that Red Moon kibble is real food and they replied that it’s the way the local, high quality ingredients are processed — they are made delicately (at lower temperatures etc) to preserve the “live” qualities of natural food and that’s one of the reasons why it tastes better than other dried foods; it’s not manufactured the usual way. Red Moon is producing the best dried dog and cat food that you can buy. No other company offers the custom blends which include the correct amount of bioavailable vitamins, fats and minerals, anti-oxidants and immune system builders/boosters, digestive enzymes, probiotics ETC. ETC. I am so thankful that these products are available in North America!
