For me it's not just the cost of the food, but I struggle to carry big bags of dry food and the big tin multipacks.. I'm a strong person but my wrists are a real problem area (you'll know this if you've followed my posts on my joint condition before).
So what's the solution? Well, it could be PetShop.co.uk who are an online independent pet store, as the name suggests! The business was actually started by founder Adam, because his mother struggled to carry pet food home herself, and since then they've tried to offer a great range at good prices, with all the convenience of having the items delivered to your door!
I was lucky enough to be given the chance to try out PetShop.co.uk for myself and I'm really impressed with the ethics of the company. They're eco-friendly and try keep their local area clean & tidy, they are committed to great customer service, they are pet owners and lovers themselves so they have you and your pets best interest at heart, they also support Dogs Trust and sponsor local guide dogs... don't they sound great?
They stock a wide range of items, from dog food and treats, to beds, toys, medicines, leads, kennels etc and carry items for your cats, birds, fish, rabbits and more! They are a one-stop shop for all your animal related needs.
Normally Max virtually inhales treats they disappear so fast, but he really had to chew these and definitely enjoyed them. He's never been a big chewer so I wouldn't give them to him regularly, but I do think they'll come in handy when he needs distracting or calming down so I'll definitely be buying more for when fireworks start later in the year. Because he's not a big chewer I found it easier to cut these into slightly smaller pieces rather than giving him the whole strip, but how you approach them would depend on your dog!
Max found them completely delicious and literally chased me when I had the (resealable hurray) bag in my hands. I will definitely buy these again and look forward to trying some of the other treats in the range. These cost £3.49 and you can see the full range here.
Another feature that I really liek from PetShop.co.uk is their "Bottomless Bowl" subscription service, essentially it's a recurring order for the things you order all the time, you choose the items, how often you want them and then it's automatically ordered for you... which if you're short on time is a great idea and definitely something I'm going to look into!
I would definitely recommend you take a look at PetShop.co.uk for yourself, I'm really happy to have found them and will definitely go back and buy from them in the future!
If you give them a go, please let me know how you get on I'd love to know your thoughts!
Stay safe, and say hello to your furry (or feathered) friends for me x
