As a pet owner, one of the most important things I feel I can do for my cats is to feed them high quality pet food. There are many reasons to feed your dog or cat a grain-free diet, the most important being the fact that animals can’t digest grains the way that humans can, and therefore should limit how much grains are in their foods. When you shop for foods for your pet, take a look at the list of ingredients on the back and make sure the first ingredients are protein based (chicken, turkey, beef, fish, etc). You can find many high quality foods at Mr. Chewy.
Our cats have tried a few different brands of high quality foods, including Wellness, Blue Wilderness, and Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul. These foods do cost a bit more than your store brand pet foods, but the difference is because they’re not grain based, they will last longer. Your pet will fill up on protein and stay satisfied longer. With grain based foods, it will leave your pet feeling hungry soon after eating, thus they may eat more. It’s highly likely that even if you feel like you are saving money by buying store brand foods, you may spend exactly the same because you end up having to buy more because your pet goes through it more quickly.
We ordered from Mr. Chewy on December 23rd – the Friday before Christmas. Our order arrived Tuesday December 27th – two mail days, due to the holiday. Because we ordered over $49 in food, our shipping was free. I love that it saves me a trip to a pet food store and having to lug around bags of food. Our 18lb bag of Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul will likely last us 6 weeks for 3 cats. We also bought a case of Taste of the Wild wet food.
Besides high quality food like Before Grain, Blue Buffalo, Wellness, Merrick and Nature’s Variety, they also sell several store brands such as Iams, Science Diet and Purina. They also sell other pet items such as cat litter, potty pads and flea and tick preventive treatments. You’ll never have to go to the store for pet products again.
If you’re looking to spend less time at the pet store and have some of the best pet food around delivered to your door, head to MrChewy.com and see all the great items they have to choose from.
