Emma Lou’s Kitchen is truly a labor of love. Shortly after Kristen Zang adopted her puppy Emma, she received jarring news. Emma was diagnosed with Distemper, a condition that leaves most dogs affected by it, having to be put to sleep.

Determined to save Emma, Kristen set out to learn everything she could about dog nutrition and the pet food industry. This was around the same time that many of the pet food companies were issuing recalls. Zang consulted veterinarians, nutritionists and other specialists while simultaneously studying the diets of most dogs. She learned that most of what was being sold at pet stores was not healthy for them. Through her research, Kristen developed homemade dog food (which is actually people food) that was compliant with the AAFCO’s recommended dietary balance among proteins, vitamins, fats and micronutrients. She began feeding Emma with it. Thanks to the health benefits of Kristen’s creation, all signs of Distemper quickly disappeared and Emma made a full recovery.

Emma ended up living just passed her 18th birthday!


After experiencing the joy of Emma’s restoration to excellent health, Kristen wanted to share these benefits with other dog owners. What began as a small operation out of a rented kitchen in Los Angeles in 2007 is now a rapidly growing company serving many satisfied and steadily returning customers. She now works in her own USDA certified and inspected commercial kitchen in Oregon to accommodate the volume of food she’s producing, and yet maintains her personal touch by cooking everything from scratch. Kristen hopes to continue to grow Emma Lou’s Kitchen exponentially and be able to share the love with as many dogs as possible. Emma Lou's Kitchen is a small batch, family owned company.

We cook in our own USDA licensed commercial kitchen where we make our locally sourced dog food.
