If you’re a pet owner you may already be using PetShop.co.uk – a nationwide home delivery subscription service to pet food. If you’ve not heard of them yet, let me introduce you to the brand. PetShop.co.uk are young online company with a team of friendly, helpful staff dedicated to saving you time and money. Plus all of their staff are pet owners so understand the needs of other pet parents. Essentially they are an online pet shop for all your pet’s needs.
Knowing I had a little furbaby of my own they asked me (or rather my 7 year old Lhasa Apso Pippin!) to review some of their natural and organic pet food brands. I jumped at the chance because I wanted to bring something different to the blog and show you a peek into the life behind these pages, plus I know many of you are also pet parents and may like a review of this new idea. Food subscription services are huge right now but I’d never heard of a pet version (and it’s not just for dogs) so I decided to give their service a try.
We were sent products from three brands including Almo Nature Dog Food, Nature’s Menu Dog Food and the new Pedigree Dentaflex. The products arrived well packaged and addressed to both myself and Pippin which I thought was really cute. He tore into the parcel, grabbed the Almo dog food sachet and trotted off with it, happily ready to hide it in his basket for later (he does this with anything he likes – toys, treats, food – so I took this as a good sign!
Before the trial with Petshop, we were using a food recommended by our vet which is pretty pricey and we have to go to our vets to pick it up when it’s running low. The Almo Nature Dog food is very alike with similar ingredients, size of biscuits and nutritional benefits and Pip literally scarfed it down in a matter of seconds so I would consider swapping over to the brand, especially because of the ease of having it delivered. Also the price is about £1.50 lower per kg and this is an all natural alternative.
So what do you think to a food subscription service for your pet? Would you buy your pet’s food and treats online because of the convenience? Tell me all about your furbabies and their favourite foods!
