Fresh diets that ultimately support your dog’s happiness and health, personalized and delivered straight to your door!
At Kabo, we take all the guesswork out for pet parents by calculating all your dog’s daily caloric needs and ensuring a balanced meal that abides by AAFCO standards.
We’ve created an ecosystem of pet products and services that don’t only benefit your pet's health, but their overall happiness as well.
We recognize transitioning your dog from one food to another is not always the easiest. That’s why we offer free pet expert support and calls.
We save pet parents some time by taking all of the guesswork out when it comes to calculating daily calories and ensuring a balanced diet that abides by AAFCO standards. We’re able to do this by asking pet parents to fill out a quick questionnaire about their dog that outlines everything from breed, age, weight, and activity level.
This helps us personalize meals for your specific dog as we know not all dogs are the same! Even some dogs of the same breed and litter may have different sensitivities.
Cola’s Kitchen follows a similar process, where they also take the guesswork out for pet parents. Similar to Kabo’s onboarding, Cola’s Kitchen also asks pet parents to fill out a survey outlining their dog’s information (everything from breed to activity level).
While Cola’s Kitchen does have veterinary support with formulating meals, they aren’t AAFCO certified with their meals.
At Kabo, we recognize health is important but not the only aspect of our dog’s life that we should pay attention to. Your dog’s overall happiness also contributes to their overall health and at Kabo, we’ve built and created an ecosystem of products and services that ensures pet parents will have the support throughout every life stage of their dog’s journey with us!
A sneak peek into some member-specific perks we have:
Cola’s Kitchen currently does not offer any veterinary support or calls for current customers. It’s also not explicitly mentioned on their website if they do provide these services. There is also no mention of any member-specific perks, products, or services that could improve overall happiness in a dog during any lifestage.
It’s possible that Cola’s Kitchen has plans on expanding its services and offerings, but currently, they only offer their fresh food.
As mentioned previously, we recognize that not all dogs are the same. Although we do have a recommended transition time, some dogs might need a little longer than others. For some, this might even take a few weeks!
We understand that our dogs are part of our family and any transition can be difficult and sometimes scary. This is why we’ve recruited the best of the best, where customers are able to connect with our in-house pet health experts.
Currently, there aren’t any options for Cola’s Kitchen customers to connect with an in-house veterinary resource that is familiar with their product.
We should note that this doesn’t mean they don’t have intentions of expanding their resources.
What’s most important to Kabo as we begin to grow our community is to make our meals as accessible as possible. Our goal is to elevate, educate, and advocate while redefining what it means to be a pet parent.
At Kabo, we always offer free shipping with every order, meaning no minimum order quantities! This allows the humans behind Kabo to deliver meals all over Canada and not only within certain provinces.
Currently, Cola’s Kitchen only delivers with Ontario. If you’re unsure of whether or not they deliver to you within Ontario, they’ve included a form where pet parents can enter their postal code to estimate whereabouts you are and if live within their delivery zone.
With over hundreds of 5-star reviews from our community, we’re confident that we’re leading pet parents to a healthier and happier future! Appealing to dogs with sensitive stomachs, picky puppies, and more. We’ve found a way to appeal to all our pupstomers with their goals at the forefront.
While Cola’s Kitchen is smaller and newer to the fresh dog food game, they currently have a few dozen Google reviews that display satisfied customers.
“First of all, my dog LOVES Kabo. She is a very fussy eater but since we’ve started Kabo she licks her bowl clean. Also, we had an issue with one delivery and I contacted Kabo and within two days had another delivery. Excellent customer service! We highly recommend Kabo.”

Our 10 month old Frenchie pup always waits till 10pm to eat her food - doesn't eat all day then eats at bedtime just because she realizes that's all that she is getting. We have been using Kabo toppers now for a few weeks and we mix it with her kibble and she eats everything! Licks her bowl clean. Her coat looks great. So happy we found Kabo!

At Kabo, we ask pet parents to fill out a short questionnaire about their dog and its specific needs or conditions. This ultimately helps us determine a suitable diet for your pet while keeping into account their lifestyle. Depending on the needs of your pup, we offer different human-grade proteins that appeal to even the pickiest eaters.
While Kabo places emphasis on customizing meal plans to dogs, Big Country Raw offers limited cooked options such as their cookhouse beef meatloaf, chicken meatloaf, pork meatloaf, and turkey meatloaf starting at $11.99. Although these portions are not tailored to your dog, Big Country Raw’s meatloaf is more of a “one diet fits all” type approach.
With every subscription at Kabo, pet parents are able to connect with our in-house pet experts to help answer any questions you might have about our product or your pup.
Big Country Raw, while they offer customer service and are endorsed by certain clinics, doesn’t provide hands-on vet services to pair with their product. They do, however, have a full-time pet nutritionist to help formulate their diets.
Kabo’s fresh recipes are created in a human-grade kitchen without over-processing which meets AAFCO standards.
With the rise of adoption rates due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we know not all pet parents have the luxury or flexibility to make that “quick trip” to grab more dog food. That’s why we’ve made it easier for pet parents by allowing them to schedule their own delivery frequency with the flexibility of being able to pause and skip at any time.
Big Country Raw provides delivery to your doorstep but delivery is only offered on certain days of the week depending on where you are located. You’re able to check when shipping is offered for your location by heading to their website.
Each of our human-grade recipes are packed with fresh Canadian ingredients providing complete nutrition for your dog.
After 1 year my puppy decided he didn't like his vet prescribed dry dog food. I tried raw which he would't go near then a family member suggested I try Kabo. Our little Georgie went CRAZY for it. He sits while I prepare his bowl and just stares at me with anticipation. His bowel movements have been consistent now and he is one happy pup ! He also loves the mix of wet and kibble.
Prior to Kabo, I struggled to find the best food plan, including a raw diet, for my sweet, six year old havadoodle. The transition to Kabo was not as easy as I would have liked, but with support and encouragement from the Kabo team, it proved to be the best choice I’ve made for him so far. Dash now has a very healthy digestive system and solid, healthy bowel movements for the first time in two years. Our Vet was also very pleased with his improvements at his annual check up in February 2022.
Ellie Mae is a very fussy dog. She also has an intolerance to some foods especially chicken. We started out with raw food…. However Ellie was always getting tummy upsets. Also I wasn’t sure of the nutritional balance and quality. When we switched to Kabo I spoke with the consulting dietary veterinarian. I felt confident that Ellie would be getting good nutrition. We usually get the duck kibble with the luscious lamb. But we are trying the salmon/turkey kibble with beef cooked. Neither gives her tummy upset and She happily eats all of it!
We got our Boston terrier puppy in December, and he became VERY picky. He did not like traditional wet food, and he became really picky with his kibble. I was researching raw, and cooking for him myself, when I came across kabo. We tried out the fresh cooked meals and we were sold. He devours it. We now get the kibble and the cooked (50/50) and it is a perfect combo. We were at our wits end with him, and Kabo has saved us. Thank you! Ohtis loves his food now.
