Applaws uncovers pet food labels

Posted on Thursday, 27 November 2014

Were you aware? 

Mum takes great pride in making sure she knows what she's feeding me and that it's only the best. We did a post back in April highlighting certain dog food brands to be aware of and our reasons why: Berniethefrenchie: J is for Junk Food
Perhaps the most shocking thing is that some well known products labelled ‘with meat’ only have to have a minimum 4% meat by law!

How well do you know your dog?
We got 88% 
Reckon you can do better?

Review: PetShopBowl

Posted on Monday, 17 November 2014

Morning all! We have a review for you all today!

PetShopBowl got in contact with us a few weeks back and after exchanging some quick emails, they sent out a big box of products for us to review just days later! We were very impressed with the super-speedy delivery! Let's do a quick background check...

Who are PetShopBowl?

"Hello from PetShopBowl!
PetShopBowl is a nationwide home delivery subscription service to pet food. We are a young company with a team of friendly, helpful staff dedicated to saving you time and money. All of our staff are pet owners so we understand the needs of other pet parents.
How it all began…
The idea for PetShopBowl came from the founder; Adam's personal experience. His mother suffers from arthritis and struggled with carrying heavy bags of dog food and last minute rushes to the supermarket to stock up on cat food. Adam also noticed that supermarket prices were really expensive and so he decided to set up a business with his partner Lexi that would make a positive impact on the pet industry.
What we do…
We stock over 10,000 products and all major brands of pet food and supplies
We offer a unique subscription service called Bottomless Bowl to ensure you never run out of pet food again.
We deliver everything straight to your door and offer free delivery on all orders over £19.99
We aim to provide excellent customer service."

Sounds pretty good, right? We thought so too!

Since my human baby brother arrived, it's been difficult getting out the house. On more than one occasion I've completely run out of food and dad has been sent out to the nearest pet shop to grab me some food - and that's IF they have it in stock!! Then there's the lugging it back home! Which currently, is not fun - we've had a lot of wet weather lately and our car is broke. Why go through all that hassle when we can pop over to PetShopBowl's website, select what we'd like and get the postman to deliver it straight to our door?!

Wait! There's more! By having a quick look on their website, we notice that they not only do dog food but also, dog toys, accessories, beds and flea and worming treatments! They also sell products for Cats, Birds, Reptiles, Fish and Small Furries! The website is well laid out and very easy to navigate.

So, what did we make of their service?

I didn't want to get too excited just in case it was ANOTHER package for baby Travis...
 Wait!.... Is this for ME?!
 Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! It is! It's all for meeee!
 What's in the box mum?
 PetShopBowl very kindly sent us: 

A 2kg bag of Canagan Dry Dog Food

And a fabulous Kong Toy !!

It's two weeks later and I've just finished off the last can of Hills food. It was incredibly tasty but mum said it made my back end smell awful! Haha! I'm now halfway through my bag of Canagan and mum and I are both very impressed with the quality of this dry food - so much so that we're considering purchasing some more! Lily's Kitchen biscuits are soooo yummy although mum's not too impressed with the crumbs left in the rug... Oops. 

And... I'm still enjoying my Kong toy :)
PetShopBowl can also be found on Facebook and Twitter

PetShopBowl provided me with the products for review, but did not otherwise compensate me for this post. The views and opinions expressed in this post and on this blog are entirely my own.
